Series: Otherworlds Summons #1
Publication date: July 2013
Genre: NA Paranormal Romance
Summonari don’t trust. Under their command, they summon any number of creatures from the Otherwolds—but never trust them outside of the summoning.
Gargoyles don’t love. Fierce descendants of dragons, they function on power and fear—never love.
Karla isn’t the happily-ever-after type of girl. No territory-hungry guy is going to stick flags all over her unclaimed grounds. Kann’s world is death and betrayal. As Dar Primus of Haus Varis, he’s expected to follow tradition but he’s not your regular gargoyle. In fact, he’s anything but.
One fateful Friday night, Otherworlds collide. Stuck together in one world or another, Karla and Kann face everything from Awakenings and turbulent love to Festnavals and bloodthirsty scorned suitors.
If there’s one thing they can’t escape, it’s the addiction to each other. And they’ve got it bad.
First and foremost I want to say that I am so excited that we are starting to see more New Adult Paranormal Romances out there. NA Contemporary has been everywhere lately and it is so great to see the New Adult genre expand into something more.
In Gargoyle Addiction we follow the story of Karla as she finds out that she last of the summonari line, a group of humans with the ability to summon creatures to her from the Otherworld. She finds this out by falling asleep while reading an advance reader copy of her favorite books only to wake up startled by the main character Kann Varis in her room.
What I loved most about this book was the unique paranormal story. With so many paranormal romances out there it is hard to make your book stand out. One great way, which Gargoyle Addiction does perfectly is create a whole new world of paranormal creatures that I have never read before.
I also really enjoyed reading the relationship develop between Karla and Kann. There is so much sexual tension between them you can’t help but get sucked into their story.
I can’t wait to see where Livia Olteano takes this story! I give it a 4/5 stars!
