Whenever I read a lot of books by the same author, I find myself bracing for that one book that I won’t like. This will be book #4 that I’ve read from Rosanna Leo, and I’m happy to announce that this is NOT that kind of book. Night Lover was a gloriously sexy, well-written, heartfelt book that knew how to tug at my heartstrings and make me laugh.
It was my first experience reading about an incubus, which is strange, given all the paranormal stuff I enjoy, and I’m really enjoyed it. Going forward, my paranormal creatures list has definitely expanded. Leo’s incubus was sexy and alluring without the rape-y overtones that I feel the creature could drift toward (given what they are known for, anyway).
Renata was a really interesting lead for me. I’ve been plotting an aspiring opera singer character, and given Leo’s background, I was really excited to read about a character in the music profession who wasn’t a rock star. It was a really interesting shift in dynamics, so A++ for uniqueness. In fact, all of the characters were unique and well-developed, and I thought the curse factor was different and new. I think that’s a great way to describe this book: different and new. Hurray for breaking boundaries and barriers and all that jazz.
My only slight negative were the religious overtones toward the end, and I don’t think that hinders the book. Faith was described as basically anything, not necessarily religiously focused, but it just wasn’t up my alley. I think it will work for others, especially those who are connected to their own spirituality.
All in all, Night Lover was a fun, interesting, and dynamic read. I’d recommend it for all paranormal romance lovers who are ready for something a little different.
