Review & Giveaway of Kiss Me Deadly: 13 Tales of Paranormal Love


Taken from

Full of dark seduction and modern romance, this short story collection presents a variety of talented voices sure to satisfy every werewolf, ghost, fallen angel, zombie, and shape-shifter’s dark desires.

My Review:

A couple of days ago I received an e-mail from someone at Running Press Book Publishers asking me if I would be interested in doing a review and giveaway of Kiss Me Deadly. So I said yes and I was very excited because some of my favorite authors have a short story in Kiss Me Deadly.

Anyway, I finished reading today and I have to say that this is another first for me. I don't normally read short stories. No reason really, but I just never did. However, I did enjoy reading Kiss Me Deadly. There were two or three stories that really did not get my attention, but majority of the book is good though and I am happy I got the chance to read it.  

There are so many authors out there that have been recommended to me (like Rachel Vincent & Sarah Rees Brennan) and I never really get around to reading any of their books. In Kiss Me Deadly I got the chance to read some of these authors and learn their writing style and how they tell their story. I now have a list of new authors to check out and probably a whole new list of books To Be Read.

Every story in Kiss Me Deadly has to do with love, and me being such a love freak, I was in heaven. Throw in a little action and mystery, and the story gets even better! The good thing about short stories are, that there is no room for paragraph after paragraph of explaining things. Almost every story in Kiss Me Deadly started right off and does not stop until the end. A good read and if you love stories about love then I highly recommend this book. I give it Four Stars!
