Synopsis from Livia Olteano


Summonari don’t trust. Under their command, they summon any number of creatures from the Otherwolds—but never trust them outside of the summoning.

Gargoyles don’t love. Fierce descendants of dragons, they function on power and fear—never love.

 
Karla isn’t the happily-ever-after type of girl. No territory-hungry guy is going to stick flags all over her unclaimed grounds.


Kann’s world is death and betrayal. As Dar Primus of Haus Varis, he’s expected to follow tradition but he’s not your regular gargoyle. In fact, he’s anything but.

One fateful Friday night, Otherworlds collide. Stuck together in one world or another, Karla and Kann face everything from Awakenings and turbulent love to Festnavals and bloodthirsty scorned suitors.


If there’s one thing they can’t escape, it’s the addiction to each other. And they’ve got it bad.

Review

     This is definitely the kind of read that makes a booklover like me drool. How could I resist? How awesome would it be if one of your favorite characters from one of your favorite series just appeared in your bedroom? Oh, the many scenarios that come to mind. But it may not be all that great for Karla. 

     Karla just received an ARC from her best friend for her birthday. She stays up reading and ends up sleeping on the book which cuts her. That drop of blood along with one little wish summons a very powerful and sexy gargoyle right out of her book. Problem is, he happens to be the villain of the story and he wants to eat. I mean really eat her, but he also has a certain pull to her he can't explain. They have to team up to try and figure out who would want him summoned if not Karla and why. They also must try not to kill each other or fall for one another.

     I really had a blast with this book. This story was quite imaginative. Olteano definitely has a knack for creating incredible worlds. I love her take on gargoyles and other supernatural beings. It was amazing. The story was well paced and really focused on the connection between Karla and Kann. I loved the push-and-pull between them. Karla lived a pretty quiet life. She doesn't expect much out of it considering her bleak family history. So she only has her one friend named Mike and her books. But everything changes when she makes the innocence mistake of sleeping on the new book. This summons Kann the gargoyle from her favorite series. He is an absolute pain and scary. He eats bears for breakfast. Frakking bears! But she can't fight the attraction to him. But she knows she doesn't possess any power, so how did he end up with her? How did he end up in her world and how can she send him back?

     Karla was a great lead. I loved her sense of humor from the get go. The "war cannon" boobies nearly killed me. She is realistic and isn't holding her breath for Prince Charming. I really liked her. And Kann, oh Kann. He was the ultimate Alpha male. He was too cocky for his own good, but to be fair, he had every right to be. I loved the scenes these two shared. They had me fanning myself one second and laughing like crazy the next. They were more alike than I think either of them realized and it was great seeing both of them break past their barriers. I loved and I can't wait to see more of them. They were a real treat.

    I love finding New Adult Paranormal Romance reads. There seem to be more in the Contemporary genre, which I love, but still. I love Olteano's world. The gargoyles, vampires, elves, dragons (oh, the dragons) and much more. This book had me at the edge of my seat. I was dying to find out what was going to happen next and uncover the mystery especially with Karla. The family thing couldn't have been a coincidence, right? I loved this book a lot. It had everything I could ask for. Highly recommended.
