Review: Once in a Blue Moon by Delilah Devlin
When testing an enemy for weaknesses, prepare for things to get hard.
Beaux Rêve Coven, Book 1
Bryn Cavanaugh and her coven like that the community they live in is isolated thanks to a storm that destroyed the bridge between them and the outside world. Now the state wants the bridge rebuilt. When the construction crew checks into the inn, Bryn begins to suspect something about the crew’s boss isn’t quite…human.
Bridges are Ethan Thorne’s thing—after all, he’s a troll—so building a simple span over a remote canal in backwater Louisiana shouldn’t be this much of a problem. When he follows the pretty little innkeeper to a midnight rendezvous, he discovers why his crew keeps running into trouble. Bryn and her coven are casting spells in the moonlight.
As a troll, Ethan feels the sting of his low place in demon hierarchy. But finding an unprotected coven of witches in the middle of the bayou could lead to all sorts of adventure. And it’s better to keep your enemies close...
Warning: Contains a handsome troll (Hey, it can happen!) who’s skilled at building sexual tension with his hands—and several other body parts, as well—and a witch who’s determined to protect her home, but forgets to shield her heart.
This is a good, quick read. I do wish it was longer. There were parts that were really fast paced and just touched on. I would have loved a little more detail and maybe some background about the coven. The fight scene, really didn't do much for me. I would have liked more action. With that being said, I did enjoy reading the book and will continue with the series. I loved the characters, especially Ethan. Who would have thought that a troll would be hot, or as caring and loving as he is. I wasn't expecting that, that's for sure.
