It s been many years since this reviewer read an Isabo Kelly story my word, what a difference Here we have two main and some minor characters, the former two very strong willed, focused individuals Layla Brightarrow lives in a world invaded by a species called Sorcerers who know how to use pain and joy to transform humans into their own kind They have a destructive goal and are well on the way to accomplishing it However, they have a very different power over the elven kingdom no spoilers here , one which the reader could not guess in a lifetime All this is finally shared by one of the elves, Ulric of Glengowyn, who is passionate about Layla but has a hard time convincing her he is not an enemy One of his family members just might complicate the situation for Ulric, but he s a brainy and brawny guy who might be able to handle any adversity that comes his way.What Layla and Ulric come to acknowledge is that their fierce, steamy attraction and union is irresistible and ultimately so very, very satisfying than that Yes, this is hot, steamy romance hotter than most romance fiction depictions for sure The brevity is powerful in the immediate focus on the need to save Layla s country from traitors, but so is the flame that gets lit early in the lives of Layla and Ulric Lovers of the romance genre, you won t forget this power packed story for quite some time Nicely done, Isabo Kelly The review that follow is a partial review To read the full review, please visit Isabo Kelly has created an intriguing read in Brightarrow Burning with its unique characters in a colorful and exciting world where human, fae, and others struggle for survival This read sucked me in from the start and I was surprised by how quickly the end arrived There was action and romance galore but I wish we d seen to the story considering how nicely the story flowed.Layla has loved Ulric since she was young but kept it to herself since human elf relationships are frowned upon for many reasons Little did she know that he too was attracted to her But with the tensions of war and with her life constantly in jeopardy he s now going to show her his true emotions Their sexual interludes are truly sexy and nicely spaced throughout the story and these moments perfectly expressed their feelings amidst the constant fear of death Layla is a strong heroine not afraid to do what must be done She wants to be on the frontlines and bristles when Ulric asks her to stop, which he luckily doesn t do often Ulric is physically strong and normally even tempered, but Layla brings out a barbarian side to him where he s willing to kill his own brother to protect her even though it goes against elf law He wants to keep her safe but knows he can t force her to his way of thinking He lets her make her own decisions but is always there to help her Their relationship is very equal even though he s vastly powerful and I enjoyed their interactions both in and out of bed.The problem I had with this story, and it s a minor issue, is that it felt like there should be I felt like I was dropped into the middle of the story with a lot happening off page There was one great action sequence but other than that you wouldn t know there was a war going on The villain in this story didn t appear very villainous and the time spent with him was extremely minimal Big issues were resolved far too quickly and easily but I definitely felt like I was left hanging at the end of the story Layla and Ulric s relationship was solidified but little else felt settled I thought that maybe this book was used to set up a series which would explain some of my issues, but I m not sure if that s the case.Either way, and whatever minor issues I had with the story, it was still an enjoyable read The world was vividly depicted with a memorable and likable main couple and I was completely sucked in by Ms Kelly s writing I do recommend this book and hope that Ms Kelly will expand upon what was so nicely started here. First Line I knew I d find you here Layla Brightarrow flicked a glance over her shoulder, then returned her stare to the labyrinth of cobbled streets below What do you want, Ulric I d like to know when you re going to stop trying to kill my brother What a brilliant world that Kelly has created I absolutely adore Layla and Ulric They are both full of fun, passion and can kick some serious butt throughout the entire novel I love Layla s name, and the sex scenes in this book are so steamy I also just love paranormal books and the elf touch to this one is perfect I like the war that is set up, and the strife between them I also am very interested in this Elf Fire that is like sex gas or something The plot is very interesting, and the romance is hard to handle it s so good I love it when a romance makes me swoon and crave at the same time, and Brightarrow Burning does that I would also like to say that the cover and name of this book are both awesome I like how Brightarrow is Layla s name and it symbolizes the name of the book also Isabo is for sure on my author watch list This review and can be seen at for a steamy melt your panties boxers off hot read to fill up a lonely night, this is the read for you This Paranormal Erotica is filled with thrills, chills and enough heat to make your knees go weak A love between a human and an elf that has blossomed for years, even neither was the wiser of how the other felt Though being on the brink of war would do that But when all that heat finally builds up to its boiling point, they may go past the point of no return, and oh how sweet it is.Layla is an Assassin, determined to do her part in a war that is enslaving her people So it is easy to understand her trust issues with the man, well Elf, that she is in love with, Ulrich Since her present target is none other than his only brother After all, blood is thicker than lust So when Ulrich reenters her life, she has to determine whether he is indeed trying to protect her, or simply use her.Brightarrow Burning is the perfect set up for the series to come Fire and Tears Book 2, The Darkness of Glengowyn is expected out April 29, 2014 Readers who are looking for a good, quick read to spice up their night, that also includes a plot, are sure to enjoy this read.
