Queen of Tarts Review of
by Becky Flade
I LOVE paranormal romance. Give me an alpha hero and a heroine who’s more than his match and I’m hooked. The fact that the hero, Aidan, turns furry doesn’t hurt. 😉 Becky Flade’s Fated Souls had me from the first sentence, “For crying out loud, what the hell is that?”. I loved that Maggie was sitting on a pine cone. Been there, done that, but rarely read about that joy of camping. I wanted to hang out with Maggie (somewhere without pine cone pillows) and eat ice cream!
I adored Maggie. She’s a journalist currently working for a tabloid and investigating rumors of a werewolf in northern Minnesota. I loved her attitude and her brains. She’s smart and determined to do her best work whatever the assignment may be.
And Aidan… *sigh* I loved his big heart and his sense of humor… but he also has big walls, for good reason. He has secrets. He is drawn to Maggie’s warmth but he wants to protect her from his past. I loved watching them dance around each other. I got a huge kick out of their flirting and I was rooting for them to be honest and well… just be together. 😉
A few of my fav lines…
♥ Ice cream therapy was in definite order. Maggie preferred to wallow with alcohol and dancing when she had friends with her; she self treated with chocolate milkshakes and key lime pie when left to her own devices…
♥ Aidan wondered if she were showering, eating, or already asleep. Imagined her doing all three with him.
If you’re in the mood for a sweet, sexy, paranormal romance with humor and heart, read Fated Souls. This story gave me everything I was looking for, lots of emotion, well rounded characters that I could connect with, a bit of suspense and danger, and that paranormal flavor I crave. I loved it!
