Weird Girls #6

Releasing on January 12, 2016

Perfect for fans of Keri Arthur and Bella Forrest, this short novel kicks off a sizzling new series in the award-winning Weird Girls saga as Celia’s sister Taran fights to have it all: independence, hot romance, and enough firepower to torch an army of blood-thirsty supernaturals.

Cursed by a spell meant to destroy them, Taran Wird and her sisters instead developed unique magical talents. With the power of fire and lightning literally at her fingertips, Taran doesn’t fear much. Demons, vamps, whatever—bring ’em on! Only one thing terrifies her: commitment.

Taran is crazy about her boyfriend, Gemini, a sexy were with the incredible ability to split into two separate wolves. But after watching her sister go through heartbreak with the pack’s Alpha, Taran knows not to count on happily ever after—despite Gemini’s desire to claim her as his mate. Reluctantly, she agrees to meet his very traditional and conservative parents. Taran’s a badass with a mouth to match, and Gemini loves her for it. She’s just not positive these attributes will please Mom and Dad.

Unsurprisingly, every attempt by Taran to bond with Gemini’s folks proves disastrous. But in the end, Taran finds that winning them over means unleashing her powers . . . and proving that this foul-mouthed fire-starter is a force to be reckoned with.

If you haven't read a book from the Weird Girls urban fantasy romance series by Cecy Robson I recommend you give this author a try. Her books include a large variety of paranormal characters in the form of witches, vampires, various shifters, and supernatural beings. I enjoy how fast paced this series is while keeping the reader involved in the story drama in a clear concise manner. 

Taran Wird was not my favorite of the sisters when I started reading this book but throughout the book I started to understand what makes her tick and came to love her quirkiness. Her awkwardness with Gemini's parents becomes a source of entertainment because it brought to mind some past relationships and these boyfriends parents.

My hero is Gemini because he continually shows a strong love for Taran throughout the storyline and even stands up for her against his ultra conservative mom and dad who he loves and honors. As a reader I was impressed with how the author incorporated the balance in these relationships in a manner that allows all points of view to be valued and understood.

Give this series a try but I think it would be a good idea to start from book 1. I give it 4 stars.
