Book Review: Tempting Fate by K.K. Watson

Tempting Fate (The Dark Races #1) by K.K. Watson
Genre: Adult (Paranormal/Fantasy Romance)
Date Published: May 9, 2015
Publisher: Self

After losing her adoptive parents in a horrific car accident, Elena Kelly is sent to be raised by her cousin, Gregory. On Elena's twenty-fifth birthday, Greg takes her out for a nice birthday dinner. While in the ladies room, a strange creature pulls her through a mystical mirror.

Elena lands on a strange beach in a strange dimension and comes face to face with a creature she has never seen the likes of before. Out of thin air, a handsome, dangerous, Sorcerer appears and fights the creature. Terrified, injured, and in a strange land, she is forced to trust the stranger who just saved her life.

On the way to find her cousin, he tells her an unbelievable tale of her true origin. Elena is next in line for the Fae crown, that her fate is to unite the Dark races, and her life is in danger.
Once she is reunited with her cousin, she discovers that everything she thought was real, is a lie, and she lives in a world with Vampires, Witches, and Demons.

As Elena's powers increase, so does the danger she faces. She must learn to fight and come to terms with who she is, if she has any hope of saving herself as well as the ones she loves.

Tempting Fate is the first book in The Dark Races series by K.K. Watson. My goodness, this was hard to put down. There was always something happening. Action, humor, romance. It had it all.  The story is told from Elena's point of view, and I got mad at her quite bit . .. because.. well you know, if things are trying to kill you, don't go shopping, or to the bar, or wherever else. Especially alone. Sheesh! But, this is not bad necessarily. It gives a character room to grow. Her spunk and attitude almost made it all forgivable. She's got personality.

I think Aiden may be a new book boyfriend for me. He screams Alpha. It seriously seeps off the pages. He really came alive and had a presence too. I could feel it through the words as I read. I even felt like I knew what his voice would sound like. It was crazy, but oh so good. This guy sure knows how to make a girl swoon, and major kudos to the author for bringing all that out in her character.

The story in general, was excellent and original. There are different types of fae as well as other supernaturals. K.K. Watson put her own unique spin on these creatures which made them stand apart from other characters within this genre, making it even more enjoyable. Tempting Fate is the ultimate escape. It took me right into Elena's world, and I didn't want to leave. I'm super excited about this series!
