The Bringer by Samantha Towle
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received this book from Read 2 Review.
This is an Adult Paranormal Romance Novel.
Death is sad, love is agony.
Max was her next job. She got his name just before he died and it was for her to lead his soul to heaven. She was a Bringer.
Then Max started pleading (as they often do), but not for himself, for his son, James.
Would she look after him, would she comfort him as he grieved for the loss of his father? James was a sensitive young man. He would take his father's death very hard.
Well, Bringers don't do that sort of thing; their exclusive role is to usher souls to heaven. They are not allowed to get involved in earthly affairs.
However, when she saw James, she felt something she had never felt before - an emotion, a shock.
She was a Bringer. Bringers do not have emotions.
Yet she couldn't help herself. She found herself being drawn inexorably towards James and his life, against every instinct she had ever had, against every law of the universe.
And she fell in love.
For a Bringer, that is a terrifying fall.
This was nearly a 5 star book for me. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and look forward to the sequel. I wasn’t expecting every twist in the story which is always great. The romance part of the book was well balanced for the most part. In the beginning, I kind of questioned it but all will be explained. I won’t say anything further because I don’t really like giving spoilers away.
The only reason I didn’t give this book five stars because it took me a couple of chapters to get in the story. I understand why now, but as a reader I want to be gripped from the beginning. To be honest, I think the first chapter did draw me in. But a few chapters after that dragged for understandable reasons. Inside the Lucyna’s head was just as her character was described and that wasn’t good.
For those intending to read, be patient. Hang on and you will enjoy the ride.
Oh, as a side note for American readers, this book uses more of the ‘Queens’ English. It wasn’t a problem for me. In fact I learned what a jumper was. It’s a sweater. But for me, an American, my first thought was overalls. LOL!
Good book. I recommend to those who like paranormal romance. This book delivers.
