Night Owl Reviews 2015 TOP PICK

 One of my goals that I had set as a reviewer this year was to uncover the best and the new authors that could deliver a paranormal romance that was worth praising. I have no issues in declaring that the genre is my absolute favorite choice in my reading and O'Neale delivered the sexiest read of this year (2015.)

There is certainly so much to savor about this story. It swelter in an out-of-this world romance that was untamed and wild. Still, I think what made this story stand out to me above all else was in fact the plot-the plot itself was an exceptional choice that I doubt many authors could have pulled off as far as realism goes and yet O'Neale did just that.

I will admit that I was slightly worried when I first read the synopsis of this book because I was dealing with the fact that Kaden, the hero is an alien. Yes, an alien. However this book is a very real read that does not lack imagination nor does it go too far beyond Earth that suddenly readers have a fantasy read within their hands and so for me this was what made this story one of my latest favorites.

As far as flaws goes I can only think of one fault that I had with this story and that was at the beginning the story kicked off instantly with Kaden lusting over Annabelle, the heroine. I prefer stories where both the hero and the heroine are given time to share in their attraction and I felt like Kaden overshadowed Annabelle early on.

Overall I would immensely recommend this book. I love, loved and loved this story to the point that I am going to continue to reread the pages again and again.

Lots of baking and beautiful men...what more could you ask for?!

Under His Skin is a paranormal romance creation that is as just as good as the cupcakes its protagonist Annabelle bakes. Almost like a sexier version of Jennifer L. Armentrout's Lux series, Under His Skin flirts with the idea of extr... ...more

Kaden is quite the character. The cover does his description justice. Annabelle is sensible, I suppose, up until you realize how attracted she is to Kaden, who is an E.T. Right from the start, you learn that they both have feelings for each other, more than best friends should. And then things ge... ...more

Who cares that Kaden is an alien the boy still gets my knickers going, “careful, woman,” he said gruffly.“ I’m barely restraining myself as it is.” I thought it was awesome that Kaden adapted to new age technology, "date night.
