Series: Project Exorcism #2
Best read in order: no, this one works as a stand-alone
Mandy has blended my two favorite genres into one sexy read. This is a paranormal romance with sexy shifters set on a faraway planet in the future.
Due to unpredictable circumstances Dr. Marissa Langston has found herself fleeing the ship taking her to her new home in an escape pod with her fiancées best friend, the man she can’t stop thinking about even though she should. Bradi has been attracted to Marissa from the moment his best friend Peter introduced him to her. He knows that with their engagement he can’t act on his desires. Bradi does what he feels is the next best, completely harmless thing, flirts. Bradi and Marissa’s constant flirting is entertaining, possibly my favorite aspect of this book.
Bradi soon finds himself on his home planet, where he was banished from years before. Bradi’s tightly controlled life is beginning to spin out of control. He has secrets, many that he knows will turn Marissa against him. Now he not only needs to protect her from the dangers of this mostly unknown planet, but keep his secrets hidden from her.
The plots dramatics do have a tendency of going dangerously close to overboard. There is an abundance of some soap operaish drama. I personally think this adds to Force of Attraction’s charm. Book #2 in the Project Exorcism series can easily be read as a stand-alone. The characters from the 1st book are in this one, but they have small roles. A small Project Exorcism history is even included at the beginning of the book. I think that if you were considering reading this series you could start out with either book and not get lost. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys reading sci fi romance or paranormal romance who is looking for a light fun sexy space romp with sexy shifters.
