Curse's Claim

Chaos Bleeds, #3

Yet another great book from Sam Crescent! Curse's Claim is the third book in the Chaos Bleeds Series, and yes, it does better with each one. This one was sexy and exciting and it was every bit as good as I'd expected.

Curse made a fantastic alpha hero. He's possessive and bossy, sexy as sin with a dirty mouth just the way I like them. He doesn't usually go for high maintenance women but yet he wants Mia right from the start. He makes up his mind and goes after what he wants. Now, Mia wasn't exactly the good girl everyone believed her to be. She's a naughty girl when she wants to be, and wouldn't you know it, she's got a past. I had some mixed feelings about her because she stayed in a situation that eventually got everyone in big trouble. Of course, it was some good drama when Curse ran to her rescue, but it inevitably got the club in deep with a monster. I'm not quite sure how I feel about that yet.

Now, I did like this one, but I'll admit that to getting a bit lost for a while. Some things were said that made it obvious that something important was coinciding in Crescent's other M.C. series, The Skulls. Apparently, I have missed a book and that made it hard for me to keep up, so now I have to go back and read the one I missed.

Other than that things moved at a fast pace with only a few grammar issues. I've found it a bit jarring that this author continually uses the wrong tense on certain words and that perhaps some things could be better phrased. It's a simple thing that none the less never stops me from enjoying her books.

As usual, it had a great plot with lots of exciting things happening. Plenty of captivating characters and absolutely no problem pulling me into the story. Not to mention the scorching hot love scenes! It's true that this author knows how to create a smokin' sex scene. I'm not ashamed to admit that's a big draw for me because I'm all about the love and romance. I also felt that Crescent did a good job in setting up the next book that I cannot wait to read.

So I enjoyed this book and can't wait for the next one.
