Welcome to #suspenseSaturday! I will post a review of a great romantic or paranormal suspense book for you to check out. This week’s suggestion:
Title: Equal Parts
Author: Emma Winters
Genre: Paranormal romantic suspense
Rating: 5 stars!
What its about (from goodreads):
Nobody knows happiness better than nineteen-year-old Felicity Eastwood. For years now, she’s been ‘gifted’ with the ability to collect and transfer happiness to anyone at will. Well, everyone except herself.
That is until Achilles – renowned criminal mastermind with a face painted like Death and enough charm to cause hormonal riots – crashes into Felicity’s world and makes her feel … something.
Determined not to let such a coveted superpower slip beyond his reach, Achilles kidnaps Felicity, hoping to use her ability to brave his own skeletons. Felicity is only a half-unwilling prisoner though, forgoing escape to learn more of the man behind the mask and pursue the inexplicable spark between them.
As the lines between hero and villain begin to blur, Felicity finds herself wondering if Achilles might be the key to her own happiness at long last. Is it possible to be so happy with someone so dangerous?
But Achilles isn’t the only villain in the town, and the pursuit of happiness can be a deadly hunt…
What I loved:
First, look at that cover! It is beautiful!! Second, this book is one of the most unique books I have ever read. There are people with ‘superpowers’, romance, danger, and some good bad guys! The plot moves at a great pace and you simply cannot put it down. I was hooked right away and stayed up to finish. You will come to care about these characters because, while some of them might have superpowers, they are the most human characters I have ever read. Emma Winters wrote a beautiful book that makes you challenge your thoughts on good vs evil.
Seriously, this book is one I tell everyone about. I just happened to grab it because its on Kindle Unlimited and I have never been so glad about a random book choice in my LIFE!
What I didn’t love:
Honestly, there wasn’t a thing I didn’t love about it. But, this book isn’t for everyone. The hero is a bad guy who has done some BAD things. The heroine is a bit broken. There is some sex, so if you don’t like books with steam, skip this one (I didn’t find it to be in poor taste or anything!)
