Review: Black Smoke by Robin Leigh Miller (blog tour)

About the book:
Samantha Wells has lived through more hell in her short life than most. At the age of eight her serene life was turned upside down. Her parents were brutally murdered and Sam barely escaped with her life. But she didn’t do it alone — a soft calm voice led her to safety, the voice of her spirit guide.
Disguised by a black mask and the handle Black Smoke, with the help of her spirit guide Sam rescues those unfortunate people who find themselves in the hands of humanity’s worst. Life is good until Sam is called on to assist a small covert military team in recovering a kidnapped scientist in Afghanistan. Lt. Mark Lowe (Kong) is less than thrilled to be placing his team’s lives in the hands of a woman, much less one as beautiful and sexy as Sam.
He quickly learns there is more to this woman than meets the eye. She not only infiltrates enemy bases — she’s infiltrated his heart. Kong retreats to safer ground, leaving Sam heartbroken. Distant and unwilling to listen to anyone, Sam delves headfirst into a hell that only Kong can pull her from.
My Review:
Wowza! I'm not even sure where to begin!! People, (that's you) go get this book now! If you're a fan of steamy paranormal romance then you need to pick up "Black Smoke." I was really impressed with Robin's action-packed and quick paced writing.
This book had me from the first page and I kept reading because I NEEDED to know what would happen. The action didn't stop till this book was finished and boy, I was so sad when it finished!
The characters in this story were totally engaging and I wanted to know more, more, more, about each one! The men sounded hot as all get out and let me tell you this...if your looking for a book with a kick-ass female lead then you'll find it here.
The storyline was awesome and kept my complete attention throughout the book. There were no "lulls" in this one. (for me anyway)
At the back of the book I saw that this is a series where we can find out more about the other awesome character's from "Black Smoke." I'll say this....This gal here will be scraping together her money to purchase the rest! I'm a fan of Robin's now and hope you'll try out her books!

**As a side note I saw a few editing errors. I think this no way reflects on the story or the author. (there were not enough to be a problem for me though....a word here or there)

  1. Okay - sounds like another paranormal series I could start! Great review. Thanks.

  2. Obviously works well from a female perspective but would you recommend this to guys too or is it strictly aimed at women?
