Kelsey Almeida has lived every one of her lifetimes in relative silence. Her voice is a lure, one that can overcome the strongest of wills. Magic has enabled the Siren to live a normal life…except when it comes to sex. When she’s aroused, no charm can obscure the call of her voice.
Frostbite: Looking for a partner immune to supernatural seduction.
Nothing pierces the icy cool of Cain’s armor. A reaper can’t afford to be swayed by human emotions, even if he still has human needs. Kelsey’s voice heats his blood, but it’s the pleasure of unraveling her secrets that threatens to melt his self-control–and his heart.
I have to admit that I’m actually a bit behind on this series. I haven’t read the last 3 books in it but as these can be easily read as stand alones I couldn’t decline the chance to read this one.
Rogers’ Last Call series is a collection of short stories all set in the same place- Last Call, a bar where supernatural beings can sate their sexual needs without worrying about hurting someone unintentionally. The characters we meet usually have an ability which makes the hunt for a compatible sexual partner more than just complicated in real life. In Frostbite we have Kelsey- a siren. Her problem is that as soon as she says something her partners are so compelled by her voice they have to get off ASAP. Sounds nice at first but well she wants to be sated too and enjoy the journey. She wants to actually be craved because of herself and not only her voice.
On the other hand we have Cain- a dark and brooding guy with a wicked dry humor that made me chuckle. He’s a reaper and woman usually don’t go for that kind of job. I loved Cain- he’s all alpha male and still has this sweet and cuddle-worthy heart that makes us women swoon.
The one thing I need in a short story is to feel the connection to the characters. I know that some people say I shouldn’t be that harsh and expect this in such a short format but for me this connection is essential for me to like a book. Frostbite gave me this connection and I would happily read more about these two. I loved to see them “take shape” in my head and at the end I didn’t want to let them go.
The sex in this one is as hot as always. We have some BDSM and toy play but nothing too daring in my eyes. I loved to see these two discover each other. The sex scenes are full of witty banter and little teasing. I do like that. It made the whole book seem less tragic and made me even forget why we are at Last Call.
What I really love about the Last Call series is that the supernatural world it is set in always stays vague. We always meet another supernatural being be it a shifter, a demon or a siren. Frostbite was a short and entertaining read. You need some cheering up and have a free hour? Grab yourself a Last Call book and enjoy the ride- you won’t regret it.
I give Frostbite 4 stars
