5+ stars for Luscious Bite, An Enchanted Mates Romance by Sara Ohlin #pnr #paranormalromance #romance #bookreview

Title: Luscious Bite, An Enchanted Mates Romance

Author: Sara Ohlin

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Contemporary Paranormal Romance


Book Blurb:


Dr. Nikolav Sarkozy has had centuries to perfect his arrogance, but his cold vampire soul is no match for the beautifully joyful ER doctor, Francesca Banetti.


Cursed never to drink blood or enjoy pleasure from a human again until he finds his mate, Niko has lived an extremely lonely vampire life. When he walks into Mercy General Hospital and meets Francesca, his penance crashes down around him.


Francesca is a healer, but with her haunted past, she keeps her witch status hidden. While she excels at saving lives, she flourishes when infusing her magic into food, doting on her niece and nephew, and teasing Niko, of course.


Niko is everything bleak and miserable. Francesca is laughter, light, and love. He craves her but denies the ancient instinct whispering she belongs to him. But when a sinister demon threatens her and her family, he steps up and vows to protect them. He had no idea she would tear down the chains around his soul.


Seven hundred years is an awfully long time to be alone. Perhaps the time has come to find his enchanted mate.


CW: Talk of death and killing. Past death of parents and grief. Death of patients in hospital. Demon targeting women. Talk of gruesome attacks by demon.


My Review:


Niko is a grumpy vampire whose fallen for witch Francesca but cannot have her thanks to a curse…or is she the cure? Luscious Bite is a seductive paranormal romance from start to finish. The world-building mixes with descriptive narration, heart-stopping romance, emotional dialogue, and characters that’ll steal your heart to make Luscious Bite an unputdownable read.

Let’s start with the world-building. The world-building in Luscious Bite is exceptional and flawless. She creates a world that is realistic but with paranormal creatures. The paranormal world she’s created is distinctive as are the characters in this book. The world-building drew me into the story from the very beginning and kept me invested until the last page.

The characters are well-written and leap from the page. Niko is a brooding vampire who is relatable and quite fun to read. Francesca is a heroine full of light and sunshine who is full-figured. I love that Sara Ohlin wrote a plus-size healthy heroine. Her complex personality captured my heart. The rest of the characters add colorful depth to the story.

I read a lot of paranormal romance and I love finding books like this one. The writing is so immersive, I got caught up in the story and didn’t want to leave. Luscious Bite hits all my pleasure spots, and it’s one of the best paranormal romances I’ve ever read.


My Rating: 5+ stars
