This is the first book that I tried out from the Grimm’s Circle series and at the beginning I was a bit confused as to what or who Ren really was. Then I decided to do some digging and went poking around Shiloh’s website to find blurbs on the two previous books published in the series; Candy Houses and No Prince Charming. Once I had gone ahead and done that I had the basic idea of what these stories were really about and from then onwards I sank into the world of Ren and let him take me away on his journey towards true love.
Grimms are special kinds of guardian angels placed by God to protect mortals and kick the asses of demons and the likes of them. Ren is a Grimm and an empath as well; someone who could sense and feel emotions of beings that surround him. Ren has resigned himself to living a lonely life with the animals that surround his home as his only friends at times. But all of this changes in a heartbeat when he encounters the woman who drives right into the heart of his woods.
Aileas is a woman on the run, not knowing exactly what she is running from. Its just the growing feeling of trepidation that she has had ever since her brother died and that dreaded book which has been giving her nightmares fell into her hands. The book which she feels as if it were talking to her, driving her onto do things that she really does not want to do. And to top that off, Aileas feels that someone or something was hunting her down and the feeling that they were closing in on her had propelled her to run for her life.
As soon as Ren lays his eyes on Aileas, the smoldering heat that flashes between the two is hard to ignore. And Ren identifies that the demons who are relentlessly on her pursuit wouldn’t give her or the book up easily and the one thing that his heart urges him to do is to protect the woman who stands in front of him, looking so lost but determined to flee whatever that was after her even though she couldn’t believe herself at times.
With classic Shiloh Walker style, Ren and Aileas wove their magic on me and made me fall a little bit in love with Ren by the time I was through.
Recommended for those who love a good paranormal/fantasy romance with a dose of sensuality with a bit of kick-ass action now and then.
