Review: Limerence - Claire C Riley

Reviewer: Stacey
Rating: 5 out of 5 Fairies
Claire Riley doesn't leave a single detail out in Limerence! Even if your preference isn't vampire novels, this book appeals to romance and fantasy readers too!

By moving the narrative voice between Mia and Breckt (and occasionally some other characters too), Riley creates a compelling cast and a dark, twisted narrative. We're forced to care for Mia because of what we know (and what she doesn't). We watch as our heroine, Mia, who is desperately in love with her fiancé Oliver, fights the compulsion and attraction to one of the most beautiful and seductive men she has ever met.
Mia's struggles with a pull to a man that she can't explain. And Breckt...well, I'm glad that I didn't like something about him (just couldn't put my finger on it).  Riley's vampire is more like the devil himself. He's into the physical and mental torture and uncomfortable sexuality that most people forget about when they think of love stories. This works especially well for this book.

There's a darkness at the heart of Limerence, a beautiful, terrifying darkness that makes the book a mind blowing, sexual read. And I mean sexual in the best possible way.It's a buffet for all your senses as Riley works her way through a checklist of glorious sights, smells and pleasures of the body and mind. There's sex in the book, but that's not what keeps you wanting more; it's the fact that Mia can't control her needs but she fights it...

This book has everything; it's a little smooth, sexy, there's a bit off humour, and it keeps you wanting more to the very end. LIMERENCE is most definitely a well-written, engaging, obsessively dark and fascinating storyline of obsession, love and revenge. It's the story of Mia's transformation from a loving human female to a predator without any remorse.

I've given it 5 fairies because the details from a vampire's perspective was so out there and different. I can definitely say I will be reading the next instalment. If you are looking for a book with vamps at their best, ones that are down and dirty, plus teamed with a bit of mystery and blood, then this book is for you!
My one negative is I've finished the book, and now I want more! Fantastic author, amazingly written; I just want the sequel!
Synopsis
One man's obsession could destroy them all.

Despite her love for her fiancé, Mia Lawrence finds herself inexplicably drawn to Mr Breckt- the mysterious new owner of the Island. Her thoughts are constantly consumed with the handsome and powerful stranger. However, there is much more to him than she realises, something dangerous and supernatural.

Mr Breckt is used to getting what he wants, and now he wants Mia, at any cost! With his obsession spiralling out of control, he knows that time is running out. A war is coming. Blood will be shed, and lives will be lost, but he will have to rid himself of his obsession of Mia before it’s too late.

Mia and Oliver must now fight the very evil that threatens to come between them. If either of them fails, it will be more than their love for each other that will be lost.

Ultimately, all three will have to make a sacrifice that will change each other’s destiny forever… but will it be the right one?

Limerence is a dark paranormal romance with a twist...
