COMING TOGETHER by @BrandyLRivers - #BlogTour #Review #5Stars

Coming Together by Brandy L Rivers
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Series: Others of Seattle #5
Chaos can drive people together or apart.

Jackie Oceans is evolving through major life changes. Her best friend is finally moving his life forward and she’s attempting to let him go. Her power has risen to the surface, leaving her no choice but accept the truth. And now a charming vampire Stefano D’Angelo has taken an interest.

Eddie Swiftclaw has been saying he’s going to propose for months. Problem is, he’s not in love with his intended fianc√©. His surfacing power further complicates matters.

Jackie seems to be everything Stefano has been missing since his wife passed away centuries ago. He can’t decide if it’s her resemblance to Eloise, or her true nature, that lures him. In the end, does it even matter?

Everything comes crashing down with the introduction of a new threat in Seattle. Jackie and Eddie will learn things they never expected. Will his loss and her new admirer push them together, or drive them apart?

Brandy L Rivers is the author whose books I will always compare other Paranormal Romances to. She has set the bar very high. Her combination of magical beings with action, suspense, and romance is always top notch.  Every time I dive into one of her novels, I have NO problem whatsoever in fully experiencing the wonders that she shares with us readers. I become invested in the characters’ lives and problems, and not just the main ones, but the secondary as well. That’s another amazing quality Brandy L Rivers has – her characters. I love, love, love seeing all the characters from the previous installments. They’re this amazing group of friends (more like family, really) that you can’t help but love and want to be around all the time.

COMING TOGETHER is the 5th book in the Others of Seattle Series and while they can all be read as standalone novels, I would recommend you start from the very beginning. I’ve been reading them out of order and it’s all still great, but if you can read them in order, then do so. You will understand everything even more, I believe.

This book follows Jackie and Eddie’s story and boy, does it start off HOT. Quickly in the beginning, we have a scene where we learn that Jackie is a strong heroine. Yes, she faces challenges along the way, but I loved how strong-willed her character was. Eddie…oh, Eddie. My heart ached for him in quite a few scenes. The whole Kim situation and then having to admit who he really did love? That wasn’t as easy as it sounds.

There’s so much action in this book that I had no problem turning page after page. The way Ms. Rivers developed the plot line and characters was superb! As always, I was invested in the story and felt like I was at the edge of my seat. Truly wonderful!

Maybe I should’ve started off with a disclaimer, admitting that Brandy L. Rivers is one of my TOP favorite authors and I just know that I will always love her books. So truly, don’t expect anything lower than a 5-star rating from me when it comes to her. J GO ONE-CLICK!
