REVIEW: Well Nicole Morgan has done it again. She has managed to enchant me with her amazing story telling abilities. I have been a avid reader of her books for a while now but this story showed me just how amazingly talented she truly is. She is going to take the paranormal readers by storm with The Nexus. I get the feeling this will be a series and I'm very excited about it and can't wait to read the next one.
Xavier is a rebel and never plays by the books which causes a lot of friction between him and his brother. He lives by the prophecy his mother told him about years ago. He would one day find the woman of his dreams and she would be human. The problem is being with a human is frowned upon. But that hasn't stopped him from holding out hope for the undying love his mother spoke of. He is determined to find her no matter what.
I immediately fell in love with Xavier. There is just something about him that won me over form the very first page and that doesn't happen often. I usually have to warm up to a character but not this guy. It didn't hurt that he was a sexy Harley riding guy that rushed in to save a lady in distress. For such a big guy with amazing powers he had a very sensitive side and that was an immediate draw. He finds the woman of his dreams being attached by two men and steps in to save the day. He was a good mixture of strong but loving. He is now one of my favorite heroes.
Rachael is just a sweet character and is in a bad relationship but is blindsided when she meets Xavier. He is everything she has ever dreamed of enough so that she wants to give her fiance the boot. Once you meet her fiance you understand her thinking. Her and Xavier instantly connect and then things just spin out of control from there. Things come to light that they never saw coming.
Well unfortunately that is about all I can tell you. Anymore and I would ruin the story. Nicole Morgan took the paranormal genre and turned it on its head by creating a new paranormal creature. I read a lot of paranormals and very rarely do we get introduced the a brand new race. The Paladins are very different and intriguing. If your a paranormal fan or not I would recommend this book to anyone that wants a new adventure. You will never see some of the stuff she does coming. At one point all i could say was...Wow!
Kudos Nicole for spinning another stellar story.
