ARC REVIEW

Release Date-9th July
Genre-Paranormal Romance
Kindle Edition-242 pages

A Halfling.
My designation. A plague. An essential death sentence in the Underworld. Until I met him.

A Noxia Prince.
He’s arrogant, a playboy, and the male who saved my life. Except he never gave me a choice, his blood tying me to him for an eternity of servitude. And I’m not sure I want to pay that price.

An unspeakable past.
Monsters haunt my nightmares. Most of them dead. But a few are still alive, and so I’ll hunt them. Torture them. Slay them all. Even if it brings about an early demise.

A courtship signed in blood. One bite sealed my fate.

But someone is playing a dangerous game, and she’ll stop at nothing to see me destroyed.

Life is a journey to death. Sometimes the only way to truly live is to die.

But I’m not going down without a fight.

Note: This is a standalone paranormal tale featuring darker themes, and ends in a happily ever after.

MY REVIEW
Happily Ever Bitten by Lexi C. Foss
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book two in the series but can be read as a stand-alone though I do think it will add to the experience if book one is read first just for added background and context. Be aware though that book one is a lot darker than this one. So this focuses on characters we were introduced to previously in the first book in this series Zaya and Grigory. It takes place roughly 18 months after that and during this time both of them have become much closer and not just because of the blood bond they share. Due to Grigory’s ascension and a prior betrothal he tries to keep his distance doing his duty to his kingdom rather than following his heart. But when his awful bride to be Napia of Neptune arrives in Noxia events are propelled into motion forcing both Zaya and Grigory to fully embrace there destiny’s and finally each other. I really enjoyed this one and loved both Zaya and Grigory as characters. Zaya has been through hell and has only emerged stronger as a result. Grigory though he’s taken a while to get the memo has finally woken up and grabbed what he wants with both hands consequences be damned. I especially adored there interactions and familiarity. There affection and love towards each other felt genuinely real. This also had plenty of action as well as some serious sexy times and we also get to catch up with some familiar past characters. This one was an easy page-turner and I’m already anticipating book three which looks like it will be set in Neptune kingdom can’t wait.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of Happily Ever Bitten.
