Review: Taste Me by Tamara Hogan

Taste Me is an Urban Fantasy Romance by Tamara Hogan from Sourcebooks Casablanca.

Book Blurb:

He Wants Her So Badly He Can Taste It...

Ever since their tempestuous fling years ago. incubus Lukas Sebastiani has known that siren Scarlett Fontaine was meant to be his.  But when you're a sex demon with an insatiable desire, relationships are way more than complicated.

Her Siren Song Brings Men To Their Knees...

Rock star Scarlett Fontaine is in desperate need of a break after a grueling tour.  But with murder and mayhem surrounding her band, and the one man she never thought to see again put to the task of protecting her, life is going to be anything but peaceful.

With danger everywhere, and their feelings for each other in turmoil, Scarlett and Lukas may be destroyed by deceit and mistrust if they don't find their way back into each other's arms...

My thoughts:

Taste Me has several different groups of 'others':  incubus, succubus, siren, vampire, werewolf, and valkyrie.  They came to Earth from another planet and have tried to live secretly side by side with humans.  They have an Underworld Council that sets forth guidelines for what is acceptable behavior - and punishes those who cross those lines.

Lukas Sebastiani is an incubus and his father is the president of the Underworld Council.  Lukas is the chief of security and is always trying to find ways to keep his brethren safe.

Scarlett Fontaine is a siren and her mother is the siren councilwoman.  When Scarlett and her band preform their last show on their current tour, her mother asks Lukas to head her security detail.  Lukas agrees despite the past he has with Scarlett.

But then a regular security gig turns to something more when a body shows up.  Lukas is determined to keep Scarlett safe - and Scarlett is determined to break down the walls Lukas has erected between them.

For me, Taste Me reads as a Romantic Suspense with paranormal elements - so it has appeal for those who like several genre's:  Romantic Suspense, Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance.  :)

I give Taste me 3 out of 5 stars.

On another note, I like that you have all notes about the book at the bottom....perhaps I should re-shape my reviews

I look forward to your thoughts. :)

The notes at the bottom were a happy accident. I forgot them one time and added them at the bottom and then realized I kinda liked it that way. :)
