Release Date: August 18, 2018
Genres: M/M paranormal romance
Rating: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

Strange things are happening all around Brinnswick. Things that remind me of a piece of my past I’d rather forget. Girls are being killed, drained of blood, and left with strange markings on their bodies. When I finally connect the cases together, a specialist is called in—though, what he’s a specialist of is beyond me.

When the chief assigns him as my new partner for the case, I can’t help but groan on the inside. Why of all people would I be assigned to Ailin Ellwood? The man is a disaster waiting to happen and a jerk to boot. A sexy jerk, but a jerk nonetheless.

What will Sebastian think when he discovers Ailin’s specialty? Will he make a run for it or will he stick around and discover a world of magic hidden beneath the city’s surface?

I love paranormal stories. With magic and paranormal creatures, authors have the potential to create a world that’s unique and fun. LGBTQ+ books that aren’t contemporary are pretty rare. So when I saw this, I had to pick it up!

Sebastian is a police officer who is stumbling upon some really weird  murder cases. Cases he can’t completely figure out. When he gets assigned a “specialist” for a partner, he finds himself in a whole new and bizarre world. With girls being murdered all around Brinnswick, it’s up to Ailin and Sebastian to stop them.

Sebastian is one of the cutest human beings to ever walk the earth. I loooooved him! He’s adorable, curious, and kind of clueless sometimes. Ailin is the opposite. Confident, bossy, and kind of a jerk. They make such a great pair though! I think they bring out the best in each other, and they really balance each other out. It’s a slow burn romance, so seeing them slowly develop feelings felt really authentic.

There’s a lot of mystery and suspense surrounding the killings, it really keeps you on your toes and makes for an entertaining plot. The side characters bring in a lot of humor and some drama to the story. I’d definitely want to see books from them, and you have your cute pets in the story as well.

I think the second book should be out soon, and it still focuses on Sebastian and Ailin. I’m so excited to see what else is next for these characters. This books is what I consider a hidden gem, I hope more people pick it up because you’re guaranteed a fun ride!
