Capri's Fate ★★★☆☆ | #COYER Book Review
Genre: Paranormal Romance; Erotica
Source: Kindle Freebie
What's a woman to do when a voice follows her home and makes mad, passionate love to her?
Corporate business woman, Capricious Gray, is dragged to a sex toy convention by her best friend. Once a shocking, mysterious disembodied voice helps her with her purchases, it follows her home. Passion ensues, leaving Capri torn between lust for her fantasy lover and the desperate need for reality in her life.
Thall, son of one of the Fates, harbors the irrepressible need to be with the woman he's desired from afar for years. In order to make her his, once and for all, he must help Capri get past her fears, including the fear of what he represents - a fantasy.
Can fantasy become a reality for these two lovers?
I'm not sure how I managed to pick 2 books in a row where a woman hears a voice in her head. I just finished Accidentally in Love With... A God before this. Both books start out with the woman hearing a disembodied voice. This book takes it a bit further though. Think Anne Rice's Taltos. If you haven't read that book before there's like ghost sex in it. At least in the beginning this was similar. The sex was very hot throughout the book and the storyline was really good. It had some extremely funny moments as well. Yet, for some reason I just feel meh about the book altogether. I liked it, but did not love it. I do love the cover though which is why I got the book in the first place.
So you might be wondering what is this fate deal anyway? Well, think closer to a djinn. Like when someone says: "let the fates decide" there are actually fates that decide for that person. Thall is one of them. He is the only fate that is the son of a fate and a human. He has watched Capri through her whole life and has been fascinated by her. When she says she'll leave the night up to the fates he decides to put his two cents in about what sex toys she should buy at a convention her friend tricks her into going to. Capri is a workaholic who has put work before everything in her life. She's very stubborn and set in her ways. She stuggles with the fact that Thall isn't real because she wants a real relationship. Thall makes a deal with the fates to allow him to be with Capri but can she pass their test?
Overall it was a quirky and steamy read. I just feel like it was missing something. I would read another book by this author and I would recommend this book to a friend.
"I've got sex toys in my hands and a horny voice in my head. Oh, happy day."
"Lachesis. I know how to use a coffee maker, but this is just a jar of coffee and a kettle. Now what?" A youtube video flashed through his mind.
