Nymphs on a mission, hot gargoyles and a back story that just draws you in.

I loved this book. Instead of the more normal paranormal creatures, Ms James has picked something more unusual and it really works. It flowed well, was written nicely and with a flair for character and plot that was refreshing. There were enough twists and turns to keep me amused to the point that as soon as I finished the story, I downloaded the other one in the series (Wet for the Titan).

My only gripe is that I wanted it to be longer! But that is purely selfish of me, the story is the perfect length, didn't feel rushed and...yeah, Yum!

Highly recommended!

Frolicking nymphs, frowning gargoyles and possibly another fun f word :-) .

Callie has three days in New York to have fun, but she finds something beyond her plan, something she wants to last, but nothing is ever simple.

Theo wants to find a way to end exile from his species, but finds someone who may be worth more than redemption.

Enter the imagination of Jennifer James. Go boldly into a world of humour, hot lovin' and unexpected twists and turns.

I was fortunate enough to be given an ARC of this wonderful book from Jennifer James in return for an honest review. Unfortunately I’ve been so busy I never got round to it until now, though I did read I the instant I received it.

‘Rock Hard and Wet’ is the first instalment in the nymphs of New York series, it’s a sizzling paranormal romance by author Jennifer James. Here’s an excerpt from the book:

Poseidon, god of the sea, proclaims that any nymph from his harem who wishes to search out a mate may do so.
However, she only has three days to find someone he deems worthy.

Welcome to the world of the Nymphs of New York.

She’s a nymph on a mission.

Callianira, curvy, vivacious, and the life of the party at every orgy, has fallen prey to a depression no amount of hot lovin’ can shake. Her best friend Petra has a plan: a trip to New York City to find mates who can handle a couple of horny nymphs for a lifetime of hot sex and soul deep love.
Callie’s not buying the sales pitch Petra is hawking, but goes along for the ride. She figures she can find a male or two who won’t mind acting as multiple orgasm donors.

He’s sexy, rock hard, and has just been released from a five hundred year prison sentence.

Outcast from the Aerie of New York, grotesque Theo’s focused on guarding the humans of Brooklyn and keeping his twin Logan out of trouble. When gorgeous females who smell like salt water and sex invade his territory, his careful plan for regaining entrance to the secular aerie gets ripped out to sea.

They’re completely wrong for each other.

Callie’s magic is tied to the ocean.
Theo can’t swim.
Callie is carefree, sweet, and finds joy in bending the rules.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smexy mythology series!! 29 Jan. 2014
By K. April Holgate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Love this new series!! I am a Mythology fan from way back, it tickles me pink to read the about the characters in a new way!! This is such a fun and refreshing spin on a world I adore!!

Callie is totally awesome, fun and flirty in all the right ways! She is just what Theo needs to lighten him up!! He is uber serious, but that is what happens when you spend 500 years as a statue. They have such a fun dynamic, it is really easy to love them!! There is a touch of drama in the relationship but that is to be expected.

Oh la, the steam is wicked!! There is a delightfully creative shower scene that will knock your panties off!! Makes me wish I could control water!! Sigh, what a girl could do with a guy who is made of stone and rock hard. These books are uber sexy and hit the ground running!! The steam happens quick, but hey, these gals are nymphs!! Things kick off with a down and dirty alley scene that will have you panting for more!

This is a mixed narrative switching between Callie and Theo's POV. This is great for getting into their heads and understanding what is in their hearts as well. My favorite style of writing!! Ms. James has done it again, written a series that has be jonesing for the next fix ASAP!! The girl knows how to write an engaging story!! Really well paced and never a dull moment.

There are several great supporting characters in this book, I am definitely expecting at least three more HEA matings in the series!! I am talking Logan/Petra, X and Herodes(even though he was a touch naughty. There are so many places for these books to go, and I am super excited to take the ride!

Disclosure - I received a copy of this book in exchange for an Honest review. All thoughts, opinions and ratings are my own. To be fair, I was going to buy the book anyway, the author just beat me to it by sending a copy!

5.0 out of 5 stars HOT, and I can't wait for the next book!!! 24 Sept. 2013
By Lauren (Romance Novel Giveaways) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
AMAZING!!! I LOVE this book, and I CANNOT WAIT to read more in this series!

HOT love scenes. Need I say more?! But I will.

The hero is tortured (and DEFINITELY an alpha), but he secretly just wants to find someone who will love him. The heroine is fun (but not obnoxiously so), and I'm hoping the next book further explores the other characters in this one.

Jennifer definitely puts a new spin on gargoyle mythology. It's a PNR topic not widely discussed, and it was refreshing to read about it.

Did I mention the HOT love scenes?

So, what did I honestly think of this book? Well. The first thing I’m going to say is that it’s unlike anything else I’ve ever read, and I mean that in a very good way. I’m not going to give any spoilers away in my review, as it’s unfair to those who wish to read it. So, let’s get down to it. Firstly, this book was very well written and very well polished. I didn’t stumble upon aggravating spelling and grammatical errors and didn’t get caught up in any repetition loops that I sometimes find.

The characters in the story – let me say wow. Jennifer deviated from the more common paranormal entities for her main casting and absolutely loved her for it. Instead of vampires and werewolves, we have water nymphs and grotesques(gargoyles). I loved the characters from the moment I met them. The lusty playful determined heroine and the reluctant sexy dominant hero. I appropriately hated the villain the moment I met him in the story. I’d would love to be able to tell you that I had a favourite character, but I loved every single one of them. They all felt tangible and within my grasp as the story played in my head.

The plot itself wasn’t as predictable as some are, it had its twists and turns and had me enraptured throughout. I’m happy to say this is one book I actually struggled to put down, it had me hooked from the first word and held me captive until I read the last.

The storyline was well paced, nothing was rushed and the interactions and conflicts were fantastic. At the end of this magnificent book I found myself yearning for more. I simply cannot wait until the next part of this brilliant series is released.

If you’re looking for a paranormal romance book that has the ability to make you laugh at the characters shenanigans, a book that is vastly different from what’s currently on the market, then this book is certainly for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Left me wanting more! 25 Sept. 2013
By Chrissy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was lucky enough to receive a free arc of this book in return for an honest review.
Jennifer has done an amazing job at sucking you into this fantasy world and leaving you craving more. From the nymphs to the gargoyles she has covered it all in more detail and depth then I ever could have imagined. What starts off as a wild nympth running away to have some fun turns into a heart stopping love story that leaves you feeling for the characters hearts and praying that they can make it work just so you can get back the fun in the bedroom. It will have you laughing, then begging for more hot steamy scenes, and then biting your lip to get through your anxiety. This is a story that does an excellent job of bringing you through as many emotions a possible. You are left feeling for both characters whether you want to comfort them or slap them in anger, yet by the end of the book you are left loving both of them just as they are.
Jennifer has done a wonderful job of taking a unconventional paranormal love story and making sure that you will never get enough. I can't wait to see more from this series!
4.0 out of 5 stars Hotness with a twist, pick this up 27 Sept. 2013
By Lisa S, The Reading Room - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
4.5 out of 5 stars

I received a copy of this story for an honest review for Amber's Reading Room.

Looking for a thermonuclear read with unique leads, a smidge of angst, and splashes of humor? Let me introduce you to "Rock Hard and Wet," part of Jennifer James's new series "Nymphs of New York." This story hooked me quickly and turned out to be one of the hottest and most fun books that I've checked out this year. This is my second read by James and it's solidified me as a big-time fan.

Callie and Petra aren't your average young women trolling the streets of New York City looking for a good-time. They are actually Oceanids, water nymphs that belong to King Poseidon's vast harem and they've busted out with exactly three days to find their soul mates before they have to return to Poseidon and the rest their sister-nymphs. While Petra believes soul-mates are waiting around the corner for them, Callie's not 100% invested since the life she's living isn't that bad.

"There were enough nymphs in the harem that she had plenty of free time to do as she wished. She snuck off for trysts when she wanted, pursued her art, and now and then climbed into bed with Big P. for a night of wicked debauchery."

Enter brother's Theo and Logan, two Grotesques patrolling their NYC neighborhood. Grotesques are commonly, but mistakenly, referred to as Gargoyle's because of their stone physique and the form of winged beast they can transform themselves into. Grotesques are actually handsome men whose ingrained purpose in life is to act as guardians and protectors. When Theo spots Callie he senses trouble as well as a few other feelings he's forced himself to ignore for several hundred years.

"For the first time in his long life, Theo wished he were a human man, anything to help ease the torment of this nymph's damnable charms on his body. The more he scented her, the worse his hard-on got."

Theo made a mistake with a woman outside of his species in the past and suffered grievously for it. But despite his Herculean effort to turn Callie away, the connection and attraction between the two of them is one that neither can ignore. Schmexy time commences. FREQUENTLY. AND IN GREAT DETAIL.

Occasionally when some stories have a strong focus on their characters hitting the sheets (or in this case alley way, shower, sheets, beach, etc.), plotline can come across as an afterthought. James manages to do lots of hot and heavy and still create an interesting story that makes sense with characters that you can connect with. Beyond the bedroom fun, it felt like Callie and Theo formed a real bond. I wanted these characters to find happiness with each other and wasn't disappointed in their HEA.

People who know me know I'm a total dork so it is without shame that I say I thought the title of this book was brilliant. I snickered - "He's made of stone so he's `Rock Hard' and she's a water nymph so she's the `and Wet.' Hehehe." I dig authors with a sense of humor and James displays it not only with the title but also in her characters banter.

"You need to change forms. I'm tired of yelling at a giant flying stone lion. Which is a totally ridiculous notion anyway. How the hell can something made out of stone fly? It makes no sense."

Do yourself a solid and pick up a copy of "Rock Hard and Wet," it's a genuinely fun (and amazingly hot) read.

Happy reading.
