Catch and Release

Title:  Catch and Release
Author:  Dakota Dawn
Publisher:  Siren-Bookstrand
ISBN:  1-61034-792-7
Genre:  {M/F}, Paranormal, Series
Rating: 4.5 Nymphs
Literary Nymphs Reviewer:  Amazon Nymph 

Rain is in Italy for one of her best friend’s wedding, but came early to look for furniture for her family’s business.  Trent see Rain, but knows he will only spend a couple of days with her. Trent feels he can never love another, after seeing his former fiancé die in a car crash. 

The second book in the Blessed series is a look at a man that feels guilt by being still alive while his true love is dead.  Catch and Release is his motto.  The feelings that the author gave Trent are so true to life about people feeling ‘survivor’s guilt’ for living when a loved one dies.  The feelings that surface when he is with Rain confuse him. 

The emotions that both Trent and Rain have will draw you into the story and keep your interest.  The angst the author creates in both will make you wonder how they will ever get together.  I liked how the author slowly showed you how the blessing started manifesting itself to both.   

A few new secondary characters show up, especially in one scene that could be termed very light BDSM as well as voyeurism.  This series should be read in order to get the full benefit of knowing what happens within the Cortino family, regarding the blessing.  I am looking forward to reading about the other members of the family as they find their true love.
