When Susie dances with Blood in Simon’s speakeasy, she discovers there’s a new world beyond the things she owns and the things she’s allowed to do. Blood values her thoughts, her feelings and offers his respect for her as a person.
So different from the luxury Simon has offered her. The exciting club nights and the new freedom of dressing and doing as she pleases.
But Susie’s still Simon’s woman, and he won’t allow her to forget it.
Soon, Susie there might be more than two men fighting over her. As Blood and Simon confront each other, Susie sees the spirit world filter into her world and crack the reality she knows. And when she looks through the shards of the illusion she’s been living, Susie realises making a choice between the two will be more difficult than she has ever imagined.
**Thank you to the author for a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**
As a novella, the only complaint I can possibly come up with in regards to this book has to be the length – it was far too good to end so soon and it broke my heart! All is not lost though, the author assures me that she has some more work on the way.
The book is set in a 1920s Chicago speakeasy, a glamorous and atmospheric setting if ever there was one! Zama sets the scene fantastically and could honestly have just written the whole book just describing the bar to me and I would have lapped it up.
The main character, Susie, is a dancer at the bar and works for a man called Simon. He has given her everything she has today in exchange for her loyalty which she freely gives until the alluring stranger, Blood and his companion walks in one evening. Susie and Blood are immediately drawn to each other but things are never so simple when it’s a case of love at first sight.
As an avid reader of all things supernatural, it’s not often that I come across any mythology or ideas that are new to me but this definitely comes in that category. Though the author doesn’t go into detail about the true nature of the supernatural characters in this book, I’m pretty sure that this will be fully explained in her future works which I will most certainly be picking up.
Sarah Zama is a fresh new talent in this paranormal romance field and definitely someone to watch out for! I would recommend this book for fans of paranormal romance and 1920s jazz theme.
