Isn’t It Just Like a Man to Exit a Relationship When He Finds Out a Woman Has a Few Little Secrets?

Title: Cry Me a River: A paranormal romance novel (Destiny Paramortals Book 2)

Author: Livia Quinn

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Book Blurb:

Welcome to Middle Earth, er, Destiny…

Cry Me a River is a paranormal romance—a world of dragons, storm witches (tempestaeries), shifters, vampires and fae, protecting mankind while searching for their fated mates in the Paramortals urban fantasy world. It’s a fun, emotional and quirky ride with twists and turns that will keep you guessing and relationships that make you want to come back for more. “Come to Destiny, you won’t want to leave.”

Tempe's snarky humor is a result of the painful childhood relationship with her parents. Their family secret is about to change everything! . . .

Isn’t it just like a man to exit a relationship when he finds out a woman has a few little secrets?

The last time I saw Sheriff Lang, he got his first glimpse of my Paramortal “talents”—a few measly bolts of lightning aimed … in his general direction. He's finally on board with our search for my brother but time is running out. In the course of the investigation we’ve gone from attraction to suspicion, support to friendship, romance to oh-my-god-get-away-from-me revulsion.

Jack’s an ex-Navy pilot. He says he wants to know “everything”. But after we answer his questions, he’ll probably grab his daughter and take the first jet out of Middle Earth. Oh, . He may stick around to finish his investigation, but I doubt he’ll still want to take me to the Mardi Gras ball, once he knows “everything”. ‘Cause there’s a lot of everything…

My Review:

Book two picks up from the moment book one ends and I liked that. It’s a continuation of the same story. River is still missing and time is running out. Sheriff Jack just found out who Tempest (and many of her friends/family) is. Whoa, paramortals! Though to be fair, Jack doesn’t have much time to adjust to this news.

“You in or out?” asks Dylan (who changed into a big bear-like creature before Jack’s eyes).

Jack’s in and the more he finds out, the more he falls in love with Tempest. He wants to protect her and help her find River before it’s too late.

This is one roller coaster ride of a book! The author does a fantastic job weaving romance and action; I couldn’t read fast enough. I loved the characters and the plot was riveting. One bombshell after another hits Tempest and Jack but instead of driving them apart, it draws them closer together.

What will happen? There’s a new character that appears at the very end and I can’t tell you more other to say my mouth dropped at her showing up.

I read this book in one sitting and started reading book three right away. You must read the books in order.

Gripping action, complex characters and a plot that wouldn’t let me go, Cry Me a River is a must-read! Onto book three…

Favorite Character/Quote: Jack. I loved how he didn’t abandon Tempest in her moment of crisis. I mean, I wouldn’t have blamed him if he did. What man would stick around after a woman threw bolts of lightning very near his crotch. giggles Jack is an honorable man and even though he’s in over his head, he’s falling in love with Tempest. She’s his storm witch and when the two of them get together, it blasts them both into outer space.
