I love to read and I love to read Romance. Any kind of romance. Although, I always come back to Historical Romance. I'll also read Urban Fantasy, Historical Mysteries and Historical Fiction.
This book was really a nice surprise to me. It was recommended on a forum where we talked about Urban Fantasy books.
I wasn't really sure what to expect, but it was just delightful and dark all at the same time. Zoey, the main character is just so lovable. We experience things from her POV, which can be a problem for me when I don't like the character. But I fell in love with Zoey. She is quirky, a klutz and has the biggest heart known to man.
Of course she is an Empath, but didn't really know she was different. She thought everyone can read people by their feelings. :)
The book starts out by her waking up and finding her childhood scary monster from the closet, sitting at her kitchen table reading the newspaper. His name is Maurice.
I got hooked right from that moment, how she dealt with that situation and all the other situations that keep happened. And boy is there a lot of stuff happening. Very bad things happening. If you like the dark themes to be mixed in with some quirkiness, this is the one.
I cannot wait to read the next one, even though I needed another UF series like I need another dust bunny in the house :)
