Marie’s Review

DESCRIPTION: “When Olivia Landry screams, people die. No wonder she’s been shunned by humans her whole life. When Olivia makes a huge mistake, she’s banished for a summer to a human town; forced to live as one of them. She’s out for revenge when she discovers the humans are different than she imagined, especially the rugged, sexy guitarist, Jackson Vance.

Pretending to be human isn’t as hard as she thought it would be…until the witch hunters attack. Now Olivia must somehow protect herself, her family, and her new human friends. There’s a problem with that. When you go around screaming, people are bound to learn your secret. Can love really conquer anything?”

AMARETTO FLAME was a pleasant surprise.  One of my favorite author’s loved it, so I thought I’d give it a try and I am so glad I did!

This novel doesn’t fit squarely into the YA genre, because the heroine is older–nearly 20 years old.  But she still has some of the lingering situations of childhood, such as, she is in ‘school.’  Olivia gets tossed out of school (her coven) and starts working at a bar.  Since this novel straddles the YA/ Adult line, I think it will appeal to both groups.

The premise of the story is about a witch who can kill with a scream.  There’s a lot more to it, but that alone was something I found interesting.  The story unfolds at a great pace (slower in the beginning and speeding until the climax), and the story is beautifully told.  The pacing was perfect.  I thought it was a great paranormal novel.

And the romance was just right.  Jackson was an awesome character, and I found myself wanting to read more to see who he really was.  Ms. Spencer doesn’t disappoint.  Witches isn’t a paranormal fav, but this book made it onto my fav’s list.

AMARETTO FLAME was the kind of rewarding read that makes you grin.  And getting a grin out of me, while reading, isn’t easy.

4 star book review

Don’t let the cheap price fool you.  AMARETTO FLAME is on sale for only $0.99, but it’s easily as good, if not better than many of the best sellers currently out there for $10.

Recommended for paranormal romance readers, YA readers, readers wanting something different, or something a little dark with a great guy.
