You know when you finish a book and your smiling and just feel that sensation of awe; well that’s what happened to me when I finished reading Amaretto Flame by Sammie Spencer.
Olivia Landry is a 19-year-old girl who lives a certain life that is hidden from humans. She is apart of a coven that protects others who have magic abilities like herself from the harm of Venators. Olivia’s gift is unique; she holds a great power that can destroy the Venators easily with just one scream. After an incident while she and her brother Everett seek out a young boy, with a gift of controlling fire, doesn’t go as planned, she is sent a town far from her Coven.
Olivia has never experience being around people who aren’t like her; she is saddened and feels betrayed by her Coven Priestess who sent her away. But after meeting two human girls who needed some self-defense advice and accepting a job at a bar in her new town, she starts to accept her new home away from home. At her new job she meets the very intriguing and attractive Jackson, whose Amaretto color eyes put her in a trance.
With the danger of Venators coming after her family back at home and also threatening her new friends, Olivia will use her gift to fight back no matter the cost. I do wish there was a bit more information on the Venators, so I’m hoping for a sequel.
The characters were so well written, I love when you can feel the emotions through the writing and Sammie really did a fantastic job. Olivia is the one character who changes a lot through out the book having to life apart from her coven. I love her relationship with the friends she meets in her new town, Erika and Jenny, it gives her a new perspective on humans.
The magic in this book was brilliant, I loved how each person’s powers characterized who they are and brought so much to the plot and moved the story along nicely.
Now for the romance, I’m a softy for some great romance. Jackson was my favorite character because his personality was so much fun and mysterious. His relationship with Olivia was the center of the whole book and brought to life such wonderful chemistry.
This is a must read, for anyone who enjoys Paranormal Romance. There were a bit of spelling errors that I caught, but it’s just something that I noticed. Otherwise if you’re looking for something that doesn’t have the same old vampires and werewolves story and want to spice up your reading, then read Amaretto Flame!
This is an Adult novel, but can really be for anyone. Recommended to fans of Michelle Rowen and P.C. Cast.
