#BookReview Callum by Melissa Schroeder @MelSchroeder #PNR


Tags: Paranormal, Romance

Blurb:


I want them to suffer...
For years, the Clan has lived through that curse, trying and failing to break free of the shackles that hold them to it. Now, an obscure text gives five cousins hope...


His duty was all that mattered.

Callum Lennon has one goal in life: protect his cousins. His failure in the past to do just that is what drives every action. When they discover a chance for redemption, Callum is willing to try. But trusting an outsider isn't acceptable.

A woman in need of a new beginning.

An expert in archeology, Phoebe has always felt dwarfed by her parents' shadow. In college by thirteen, she's never measured up to her parents' high standards. When the Lennons contact her, she decides to take a chance...and finds herself intrigued by the most insufferable man.

A passion impossible to ignore.

One argument leads to a kiss and to an unbearable desire they cannot seem to fight. When an old enemy threatens their fragile new love, Callum will have to choose between believing his mind or trusting his heart.


Maya's Review

An enjoyable opener to an heart-thumping, exciting series.

I must admit it took me a while to get into this story. For starters I didn't like Callum or Phoebe at the beginning—Callum was grumpy and dour, Phoebe was sneaky and abrasive.

However the mystery behind the curse surrounding the clan had me hooked right from the Prologue and I had to keep reading to find out how it would be resolved. The suspense is well done and kept me turning the pages and it was interesting how the villain used Phoebe as a puppet to try to destroy the Lennons.

Edinburgh and the Scottish Highlands are fabulous backdrops for this story and makes it very believable. I could certainly picture some of the scenes in my mind's eye.

When the story picks up, it is easy to understand why Callum is the way he is. The need to protect his family made him very suspicious of outsiders and after living so long with the curse it is difficult to have hope of a cure.

For paranormal stories, I expect action and suspense and this story ticks the boxes. The romance between Callum and Phoebe never caught fire for me. This is still a great read, regardless. I'm certainly interested in reading the rest of the cousins' stories especially Logan's story.

If you enjoy paranormal or romantic suspense, then I happily recommend this one.
