{Paranormal Romance Review} Breaking the Storm (Credence Curse #1) by Sedona Venez

Stormy Credence was destined to succumb to the Credence family curse—they all did.

Stormy is put to the test one more time, when the one man that she never wanted to see again—‘Rock Star’ Knox Gunner comes blowing back into her life—back to claim what’s his—Stormy. This time he will stop at nothing to prove that she belongs to him in every sense of the word…

When Stormy meets sexy band front man Knox Gunner, there’s no denying him. Willing to take a chance on love, Stormy breaks the most important Credence rule, no relationships—ever—a mistake that results in heartbreaking devastation.

But can she keep her feelings from getting dangerously deep until his game of ‘Breaking the Storm’ is over? (Blurb via Goodreads)

{Rating} 3/5 - I liked it!

{Review} Steamy, intense, intriguing  And the cover... love the cover!

It's an interesting premise, the curse, the 'Others' world and all the accompaning rules. That said, there's a lot going on, there are fae-witch, shifters, warlocks etc. I liked the story, I liked the characters but it felt like it was trying to be too much, to do too much, it's paranormal, romance, BDSM, it's got a bad boy musician, star crossed lovers, the curse... you've got the picture.

The chemistry between Knox and Storm was great - the burlesque scene anyone? Knox is a great match for Storm who has got all the baggage of the Credence curse hanging over her head. Knox is intense. He's unrelenting. He knows what he wants and is determined to get it, doing anything and everything to get her, even if it makes her squirm, especially if it maker her squirm. I did have trouble believing Storm didn't figure things out out sooner, there were too many hints and Venez makes sure we know she's not a dumb girl. And Mr. 'You're Mine' Knox waiting patiently for Storm? Didn't seem to fit his character.

I'm intrigued about book #2, there are still a lot of unanswered questions and characters I don't know nearly enough about. There's Light, Storm's cousin who's also a cursed Credence, and the Alpha Ryker... I see fireworks ahead.
