Review:


What a thrilling ride Shyla Colt leads the reader on in DON’T FEAR THE REAPER. I have to say I loved the roller coaster ride and wanted more even after the book ended. Filled with action from beginning to the end and ending with a bang.

I loved this take on Angels and Demons. The world of angels, demons and humans interacting with one another is vivid and very realistic. The conflict between the hero and heroine is well plotted out and I found myself wanting to get to know them. To learn why they were drawn together. This book is dark, fun, witty, sweet and erotic all rolled up into sixty-eight exciting pages. The culmination of the hero and heroine fulfilling their destiny with one another left me pleasantly satisfied and wanting more.

What can I say about Brea, beautiful and feisty Brea. Brea is so very tough but at the same time there is a sweetness about her that as a reader you cannot resist and you want her to be able to get everything that she wants in life. You root for her to be able to gain her second chance and to win Nox. Vulnerability. One thing I noted about this character was even with her tough exterior that she was so very vulnerable and naive in some instances. But it fit with the whole theme. She was dealing with angels and demons. Being human and not knowing what the overall plan (not privy to what ‘He’ willed) is helped to show her vulnerability.

Oh my and Nox? God. Shyla Colt, I blame you for my lust over an angel. He was my favorite type of hero. Sexy, hot, brooding and dark. But on a serious mission to save the woman he loved. He is the ultimate protector. A guardian who fell in love with his charge.

I loved the back and forth dialogue between all the characters in the book. Most especially the dialogue between Nox and Brea. It was just right and flowed well. Seeing as Nox and Brea’s relationship was well established (he had been her guardian since her birth), their romantic involvement was realistic. I could see Nox actually watching her through her life and falling in love with her once she became of age, and then having to temper that need to do his duty of protecting her, even if it is from himself.

My overall impression is if you’re looking for dark erotica, this is the place to start.

Five stars for a very interesting plot, sexy characters and one hell of a rocking title.
