For 100 Days, A 100 Series Novel, Lara Adrian
I love Lara’s Midnight Breed novels and looked forward to this venture into contemporary romance. I had vowed to stay away from the Fifty type trilogy reads, having found so many that are pale imitations, or simply focused on sex and not the story behind it. Still, Love Lara’s book so couldn’t resist this.
And how glad I am that I asked for it – its a fabulous read, hot sex, great characters and a terrific story full of secrets to come out promising the wonderful drama filled reads for the next two books.
Of course, here we come to my pet hate – next book is this winter, and final one not til next spring.
I’m “in” the story now, really immersed into what happens with Avery and Nick, wanting to know more, what’s going to happen when Claire comes back, where will Avery live, what’s the secret that Nick is hiding, what else has Avery kept from him, how does Kathleen fit in to the story….so many questions right now but I know from past experience that desire to know more will have waned when books two and three are released. I really wish all parts were out at once, that way I can read straight through and enjoy the story so much more.
So if like me you’re in a bit of a FoG funk, tired of reading the same old story re-churned don’t ignore this, Lara has come up with something that still in that type of format, but which is fresh and original, with fabulous lead characters in Avery and Nick, but with some good secondary characters too, Avery’s friend Trina (? think that was her name), Jared the artist, Avery’s mum, Claire who owns the flat – will she be a bigger part of the next book or just a convenient person to let Avery be housed near Nick? What about Kathleen? I feel she’s got a big part to play – well, hope so anyway 🙂
There’s some very erotic and steamy sex here but backed up with a story that will have you wanting more..now dammit!! Buut..got to wait 😦 The saving grace is that it ends on a natural breakpoint, not an awful cliffhanger.
Stars: Five, a fabulous read that left me wanting the next books now.
