by Claire C. Riley

LIMERENCE by Claire C. Riley is an extremely enjoyable and well-written paranormal romance. It was a very quick read for me, because the book flowed smoothly and the plot line kept me engrossed throughout.

The arrival of a mysterious Mr Breckt to the Island ruins Mia and Oliver’s chances for a happy future. Even though Mia knows she loves Oliver, she can’t help falling for the charming and irresistible Mr Breckt. But the appearance of this stranger is followed by a few people disappearing, and Mia’s fiancé Oliver is among them.

LIMERENCE is written in the present-tense first person POVs, mainly Mia’s and Mr Breckt’s. I really enjoyed reading about Mia who is so passionate and vulnerable, yet strong at the same time. I admired her love for Oliver who is my second favorite character in this book.

Claire Riley’s prose is descriptive but not overwritten, which is very important. I could easily visualize everything I was reading about. Here is a short piece where Mr Breckt is being introduced into the story, which I like a lot:
“As if on cue, a man steps out of the shadows of a side doorway. A doorway that up until that moment I hadn’t even noticed. He’s young and handsome. With a chiselled firm jaw, and perfect shaped mouth. His hair is dark and thick, styled and yet unruly, as if unwilling to be tamed. He’s of medium height and build, but in the suit and tie that he’s wearing he commands everyone’s attention.”

It’s a great read aimed at 17+ readers. I really look forward to reading LIMERENCE II: Mia! I want to find out what happens next.


One man's obsession could destroy them all.

Despite her love for her fiancé, Mia Lawrence finds herself inexplicably drawn to Mr Breckt- the mysterious new owner of the Island. Her thoughts are constantly consumed with the handsome and powerful stranger. However, there is much more to him than she realises, something dangerous and supernatural.

Mr Breckt is used to getting what he wants, and now he wants Mia, at any cost! With his obsession spiralling out of control, he knows that time is running out. A war is coming. Blood will be shed, and lives will be lost, but he will have to rid himself of his obsession of Mia before it’s too late.

Mia and Oliver must now fight the very evil that threatens to come between them. If either of them fails, it will be more than their love for each other that will be lost.

Ultimately, all three will have to make a sacrifice that will change each other’s destiny forever… but will it be the right one?
