When I saw the cover of "The Accidental Kiss", I knew I had to read it. The cover is HOT and mysterious. I love the graveyard with the skulls, and the coloring is awesome. Mael Designs really did a wonderful job with the cover. Now, it is time to gush about the book.
From the very first page of the book, I was hooked. I thought the use of voodoo and zombies was really unique and an interesting twist for a paranormal book. The suspense of the plot made me devour the book, and the cliffhanger ending made me wish the second book was already available! The day the sequel comes out, I will make sure I have the book in my possessions.
Sky is a very likable main character. She was kind, but she also had an attitude. Sky's attitude definitely added some great humor to the book. The one quality I loved about Sky was how loyal she was to her friends. She would do anything for her friends, and I really admired that about her. The one thing that annoyed me about Sky was that she tried to distance herself from Daemon. Now, this might have just bothered me because I am a hopeless romantic and I desperately wanted them together. However, she quickly got over that (much to my happiness).
"My whole life I had never met anyone like Daemon because, let's be honest, he was one of a kind. He was passionate, relentless, overprotective, and fearless. I wanted to smack him and kiss him within a five second time frame. He was everything I hadn't known I was looking for."
Now, it's time to talk about Daemon. Oh, Daemon. I loved him so much. I want my own Daemon, because he is perfect. It is charming and gorgeous, which is always a great combination. As Sky puts it above, Daemon really is one of a kind. Daemon was witty, and he had some lines that made me laugh out loud.
"I assessed the amount of his injuries. They weren't awful but I hadn't seen underneath his t-shirt yet.
"Would you mind if I lifted up your shirt?"
"Always trying to get in my pants," he quipped.
I was glad to see that Daemon still had his personality in tact."
I love how much he obviously cared about Sky, and how he would do anything for her. They had a really strong relationship with a lot of sexual tension. I am pretty sure my kindle was about to catch on fire during some of the scenes.
"I tugged a lock of his hair, coaxing a smile out of him. Daemon clamped his hands around my wrists and held my arms above my head. Lust blossomed between my thighs as he looked at me with enough fire to set the room ablaze.
"You undo me," he breathed.
He nibbled on my bottom lip as he weakened me with kisses. He let go of my hands so that they could roam the hard apex of his muscles. They ripped underneath my touch."
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It had suspense, humor, action, and romance. The incorporation of zombies and voodoo made the book very captivating. I would recommend this paranormal romance to anyone looking for a more unique genre within paranormal romance. I am looking forward to reading the sequel!
