It's sort of difficult to talk about vampires these days without mentioning Twilight...so let's just get that out of the way straight away.

This. Isn't. Twilight. And that's a really, really good thing.

At first glance, Riley's novel is an "erotically charged" novel that just happens to have vampires; but even saying "erotically charged" feels wrong (and sort of dirty...but in the good way.) That changes once the first dead body appears on the page (and don't worry; you don't have to wait too long.) What follows is a sensual fable of lust, desire, sex, love and how they all come together. And that sometimes, they don't go hand-in-hand.

Riley breathes refreshing life into Mia Lawrence, a likeably flawed protagonist, likeable mostly because of her acknowledgement and self-awareness of her many flaws; although she's engaged and happily in love, she finds herself mysteriously drawn to Mr. Breckt. Breckt is the dark, dashing stranger that forms the backbone of gothic romance novels like this, but there's a problem: Breckt (like the novel) is more dangerous than Mia could ever imagine...and more dangerous than this reader imagined too.

By moving the narrative voice between Mia and Breckt (and occasionally some other characters too), Riley creates a compelling cast and a dark, twisted narrative. We're forced to care for Mia because of what we know (and what she doesn't), but we WANT to care for her; Mia's struggles embody the battle between ego, superego and id that vampires play in modern fiction. And Breckt...well, I'm glad that I didn't like him; Riley's vampire is less Edward Cullen and more akin to the psychological torture and uncomfortable sexuality that most people forget about when they think of Wuthering Heights. And it really works for this book.

LIMERENCE by Claire C. Riley is an extremely enjoyable and well-written paranormal romance. It was a very quick read for me, because the book flowed smoothly and the plot line kept me engrossed throughout.

The arrival of a mysterious Mr Breckt to the Island ruins Mia and Oliver's chances for a happy future. Even though Mia knows she loves Oliver, she can't help falling for the charming and irresistible Mr Breckt. But the appearance of this stranger is followed by a few people disappearing, and Mia's fiancé Oliver is among them.

LIMERENCE is written in the present-tense first person POVs, mainly Mia's and Mr Breckt's. I really enjoyed reading about Mia who is so passionate and vulnerable, yet strong at the same time. I admired her love for Oliver who is my second favorite character in this book.

Claire Riley's prose is descriptive but not overwritten, which is very important. I could easily visualize everything I was reading about. Here is a short piece where Mr Breckt is being introduced into the story, which I like a lot:
"As if on cue, a man steps out of the shadows of a side doorway. A doorway that up until that moment I hadn't even noticed. He's young and handsome. With a chiselled firm jaw, and perfect shaped mouth. His hair is dark and thick, styled and yet unruly, as if unwilling to be tamed. He's of medium height and build, but in the suit and tie that he's wearing he commands everyone's attention."

It's a great read aimed at 17+ readers. I really look forward to reading LIMERENCE II: Mia! I want to find out what happens next.

REVIEW: LIMERENCE is the first storyline in Claire C Riley's new Limerence series written in a combination of genres-paranormal, urban fantasy, thriller and suspense. The storyline follows the obsession of a powerful vampire and his need to make the beautiful human female his own. But what ensues is a twisted tale of wants versus needs; love versus hate; obsession versus death. The storyline is dark, dangerous and a little disturbing as Robert Breckt stalks, compels, mystifies and eventually destroys the very thing he wants.

We watch as our heroine Mia, who is desperately in love with her fiancé Oliver, fight the compulsion and attraction to one of the most beautiful and seductive men she has ever met. But Robert Breckt is not what he appears to be. His desires, his needs, his body and his soul want Mia and no one else. This is not a story of one's man burning love for the female of his dreams, but one man's obsession with the only woman he cannot have or control.

Throughout the storyline we are pulled in as Mia's relationship with her fiancé falters when the building compulsion to find Mr. Breckt interferes in their daily lives and, we watch as Oliver sets into motion a series of events in which everyone will suffer in the end.

LIMERENCE is a well-written, engaging, obsessively dark and fascinating storyline of obsession, love and revenge. Limerence is the story of Mia's transformation from a loving human female to a predator without any remorse.

"I'm a vampire."

"A hunter."

"A temptress."

"I'm not going to be the good girl any longer."
