#REVIEW: Breaking The Storm

Breaking the Storm (Credence Curse #1) by Sedona Venez mixes the supernatural, rock stars and sexy sex in a delicious combination.

I wanted Knox. There was no need to deny that fact.

Knox was the type of guy you gravitated to, who stood out in the crowd. It wasn't just his classically good-looking features and perpetual five o’clock shadow. It was his raw energy that entranced me, that made me feel like a giggly, fumbling high school girl, happy to be in his presence.

Yes, there’s no denying it, front man Knox Gunner was a sexy badass.

It didn't matter that he initially thought I was some bored, rich girl trying to live out some wild fantasy of being with a starving musician. It was uncomplicated and that's what we both wanted. At least that's what I convinced myself. I wasn't ready to admit to myself that my feelings for Knox were getting dangerously deep—waiting to lay siege on my heart. I was falling for him… and this was dangerous. The rules were clear: falling in love would obligate me to expose what I truly was, setting in motion his slow march to death.

REVIEW
Breaking The Storm was a good story with a unique premise. The plot moved swiftly and grabbed me right from the start. The lore that was intertwined into the plot kept me interested, wondering just how it was going to play out for Knox and Stormy. What I couldn't figure out though was how she, given all her fae powers, didn't know he was also an Other. There were a few little quirks like this in the book that just made me wonder if pieces of the story could've been sorted a bit more.

My major concern with the book was the introduction of BDSM. It really wasn't necessary and didn't play any role in the book. I love dirty talk (like any red-blooded American woman) but the talk in this book was a turn-off. It just came out as mean-spirited. The scenes also bothered me in that, given Stormy's profession, she should've known protocol better than she exhibited.

Readers will enjoy the nice, tidy ending and the HEA. Knox and Stormy were definitely a magnetic coupling.
