He knew her round eyes and the deep shade of brown along with the band of black that encircled her irises. He knew the slope of her breasts, the indent of her waist, and the flare of her hips. He knew the way she preferred to wear muted colors to help her blend in with a crowd. It had taken one look to put all that to memory, but he found his eyes going to her again and again as if he couldn’t get enough.

Only thing I knew going into this book was what the synopsis on Net Galley website had posted. Going by that alone, this book sounded good. I made it through the first chapter okay! But all that changed in the middle of the second chapter, when the two main characters meet then everything started to feel strange like I was missing out on something. Went on to Goodreads and low and behold, I realized that Heat is book #12 of Donna Grant “A Dark Kings” series.
You’re probably wondering if this story could be read as a stand-alone? My answer. No, this title can’t be read as a stand-alone. However, I did complete the story. Only so I can give my honest opinion about this title. The world that Donna Grant created was fun. The characters too were well created and the predicaments that the characters found themselves, advance the story without slowing the tempo too much. As, a whole, I found this story just okay. The story for what it’s worth keep my attention. After the story was over, it was over.
If you found pleasure in watching or reading the Hobbit and, or The Lord of the Rings. You would surprisingly enjoy this title.
