It has been a while since I logged into WordPress and I guess it will take me a while to adapt to this new look and I am most disappointed they took away the classic editor which I preferred over this. However, that is not the reason I am here today, normally Monday means a book review but today it is a shameless plug for a charity anthology I am part of. I really enjoyed writing this and hope you will enjoy not only my story but all the others included. The book was intended to launch for the Indie Love Signing in Cardiff which should have been happening this weekend but now has had to be cancelled until 2023. This book will be available for a limited time, but will be available again closer to the actual signing.

I decided to give this book a try after the author handed out a leaflet with a sample chapter at a book signing event, it has been a while since I read a paranormal romance but the sample grabbed me…
We start as always with the Goodreads blurb.
Afterlife… just some gothic nightclub where gossip is fuelled by the presence of a rich and unearthly, handsome family or Afterlife…the strange place where time seems to stand still and guests feel the presence of something more powerful held within the confines of the VIP.
Keira is new to this small, cold town and is running from a past that seems to feast on her darkest memories. She finds living with her sister away from English soil to be just the ticket to the new life she is trying desperately to find. So when the offer of a job at the infamous Gothic nightclub Afterlife comes along she thinks that lady luck has finally found her. That is until its seductively dark and forbidding owner Dominic Draven sets eyes on her. All at once she is captivated and plunged into a world she never knew existed but the deeper her obsession with Draven becomes, the harder it is to decide…should she stay and continue to work within the shadows of the supernatural or should she run from a madness she thinks may consume her?
Warning: This book is amazingly addictive, with its dark mystery, haunting horror, seductive twists and one sexy dark lord that has the reader drooling every time the name Draven appears on the page!
I have to say this was really easy to read and I thoroughly enjoyed it, there were times where I got frustrated with the allusions to Keira’s dark past. As the story unravelled I understood why it was done the way it was but I do wish that it had either come earlier or her past been referred to slightly less however that is a personal preference.
The world building was good and I felt the author conveyed small town American in a way that was relatable to someone who has never been there. The characters were well rounded and likeable, occasionally I felt I would have like to know more about certain characters or plot point but because of the point of view this was not always possible however I look forward to reading more and hopefully seeing things from other viewpoints.
I dont want to give away too much but I did really like the twist on the ‘unearthly family
If I had found the series as a teenager I would have been in heaven, as an older reader I still got enjoyment from reading this book and though I wavered between 4.5 and 5 I am going to give it the full 5 out of 5 stars.
