Review…The Lost by Caridad Pineiro

‘Adam Salvatore is no ordinary millionaire. The heir to an ancient race possessing a dark, powerful magic, he can shapeshift and create energy. His gifts make him a living weapon and have forced him to live in seclusion. But now an inhuman force hunts down Adam-just when he finds someone who makes him feel more human than he ever imagined possible . . . Home from combat in Iraq, Bobbie Carerra wants only peace, yet soon joins Adam in a terrifying battle against paranormal enemies who hide in plain sight.She’s drawn to his strength of mind and body; he’s attracted to her courage and intoxicating energy. Their scorching passion can either transport them to the heights of ecstasy or-if Adam’s powers rage out of control-destroy them. But when an invisible brotherhood tightens its nets and someone Adam trusts betrays him, only a heartrending decision can save them.’

I had really high hopes for this book. I had heard really good things about it so I was eager to read it. It wasn’t a horrible book but it didn’t wow me like some of the others that I have read. The chemistry between Adam and Bobbie is really good and they are a good combination of strong people who enhance the other one. The story line was really well written.

Adam is the kind of guy you can relate to. He doesn’t understand who he is since he lost his parents at a young age and is adopted. He is in the process of trying to figure out why he is different from regular people and that’s when he meets Bobbie. Who is different herself but doesn’t know it. It can get confusing telling who is who and what side they are on, good or bad.

I did like Bobbie which was a change for me. I usually have issues with the female characters. She is wounded from Iraq stays strong and isn’t the timid girl that usually annoys me. She is pretty kick ass even with her limitations. It wasn’t the run of the mill paranormal romance so it was nice to read a different set of characters this time. The heat though was low for me. I thought it could have had more heat added to the characters. It built the scene up then it kind of petered out. However, it wasn’t a “must keep reading” type book for me. It was really well written but I wouldn’t say it was one of my favorites.
