REVIEW: Bitter Black Kiss by Michelle Clay

Title: Bitter Black Kiss
Author: Michelle Clay
Publisher: Crescent Moon Press
Date Published: 12/2011
Source: Author

Publisher Synopsis:
Former event planner Nicole Riley lost not only her job, but part of her humanity when a concert in L.A., fails catastrophically and the band attacks a rival werewolf pack. Now Nicky keeps her "inner beast" subdued by taking wolfs bane and refuses to become a monster. She's trying to rebuild her reputation and manages the Bitter Black nightclub where Brody Dunn is the dee-jay. 

Brody Dunn, a former special crimes detective turned private investigator, plays on Nicole's sympathy by claiming to have just suffered a wolf bite. He keeps his past, careers, agenda and just about everything else from Nicole - except for his attraction. 

They have bigger problems than Brody's lies. Nicole's boss is a ruthless druglord, determined to have Nicole for himself. The danger increases for everyone when he challenges the local Alpha. If they survive, and she can forgive Brody's betrayal, will she accept what they've become? 

My Rating: Solid 4.5*'s

My Review:
Nicole Riley does not accept her curse of being a werewolf. She is merely trying to get by and mask the effects as much as possible. That is the great thing about this book, Michelle Clay has created a world where there are drugs that not only help you lessen the werewolf effects, but also help you embrace them.

Brody Dunn was forced out of his job as a detective upon the revelation that he was a werewolf. He knows the owner of Bitter Black, a local nightclub, has something to do with the distribution of the werewolf drugs and he is determined to pin him for it. 

This story line is fast paced and flows effortlessly. I was sucked in from the beginning and finished it in one sitting. The attraction between Nicole and Brody was undeniable.

If you are looking for a hero that will steal your heart, a steamy romance, action, suspense, and twists that will keep you guessing, this is the book for you! 

What a great addition to the Paranormal Romance genre. Michelle Clay has written a fast paced and action packed book.

Interview with Michelle Clay will be posted later today. I will link back as soon as it is up!
