Review of "Immortal Blood" by Magen McMinimy

When a luck eating leprechaun named Zander steals her luck, Isabelle "Izzy" Moreno finds herself incredibly accident prone and under the protection of the incredibly hot Light Fae Warrior Bain. Although reluctant to go to the Middle World where the Light Fae live at first, a near death experience convinces her that she desperately needs the help that only Rowan, the Light Fae Queen, can give her. She soon finds herself enchanted by more than just the scenery in the Middle World, but will Bain return her affection?

Izzy is the first woman that hasn't succumbed to Bain's charms and when he finds himself tasked with protecting her from a string of unnatural bad luck he can't help but try to break through her barriers. There is just something about this feisty human that he finds incredibly appealing. But will her shortened life expectancy keep him from finding true happiness for the only time in his long life?

This is the first book in the Immortal Heart series and it perfectly sets the stage. We learn at least most of the rules of the Fae without them coming off sounding pedantic, and meet many of the major series characters slowly enough to develop a connection and really get to know them so we don't forget their names and significance (unlike how I feel every Christmas with my in-laws meeting all the aunts and cousins at once. After seven and a half years of marriage I still can't remember everyone's names). Then there is the meat of the story. I didn't want to put my Kindle down, and I realize I've said that in a lot of my reviews lately, but I've been having a string of really good luck when it comes to books and they really have held my attention that strongly.

You can tell from the beginning that Bain is a real hot-head and then you add Izzy's Latina spice and it makes for a real combustible mix. I love their interactions and the way they seem to butt heads on just about everything at first. As their connection grows, it actually feels like more time has passed than the story indicates. And this isn't one of those stories where one minute the girl just can not stand the guy and then BAM, they're in bed together and the orgasms make them fall deeply in love forever. You can really feel the connection building between them, and the sexual tension is so thick you could cut it with a knife, even after they've done the dirty for the first time.

Overall I give this book 5 out of 5 stars for pulling me deep into the story and not letting go. I would definitely recommend it to any paranormal romance fan out there. - Katie
