Title: Spectra 

Author: Ebony Olson
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release date: February 18, 2017


One touch of Spectra’s fingers leaves the predator Bay craving more.

Spectra is a Balance; a decedent of angels whose soul has been intertwined with that of sorcerer Alexander, although her heart belongs to Mercury, the son of an archangel.
Bay is a predator de Sang and sorcerer, who runs his own private security company, fighting the purist organization Essence. Seeking out Spectra for her special abilities the last thing he expected to find was a Balance strong enough to withstand his potent energy. With her heart and soul already claimed, could there be room for another in her life?

When Bay’s infatuations bring Spectra to the attention of Essence and put her life at risk, he must learn that sometimes sacrificing the ones you love is the only way to save them.

Jen reviewing today – I loved this book! This is best book I’ve read this year and Spectra will make my top list for 2017! The character’s are interesting, intriguing, and engaging.  I loved the story and it had plenty of hot scenes.

Spectra is a young woman finishing college and ready to move on to the next phase of her life.  She is wants to be with high school love Alexander, a sorcerer, but worries her abilities are not enough to be his wife.  She also has a deep connection with Mercury, an archangel, with whom she enjoys spending time (and may be in love with).  Then she meets Bay, a predator (I’m thinking like a vampire but it isn’t clear). He has awoken a passion in her like no other. And she has done the same for Bay after centuries long celibacy. All the men know about each other in the story and their involvement with Spectra. While Spectra is balancing the relationships (and the hot and steamy times with each man), she starts job interviews which lead her to Essence, a organization doing bad things for the wrong reasons. Her abilities become an interest to this group and the men in her life seek to protect her.

The book reminded me a lot of the Mortal Instruments, but instead of being from the Shadow Hunters perspective it was from the Downworlder’s view and there is no army of angelic beings policing the world (oh and there are plenty of sex scenes). Humans and supernatural creatures interact in this world and  most humans are unaware of the supernatural beings supernaturalness.    I loved this book and hope there may be more as the world Ebony Olson describes is so engaging.

Definitely a 5 star!
