With TASTE OF LOVE, author Mindi Winters continues with the suspense and fun of an emotion filled, paranormal romance series about the Stern family. Because when a supernatural hunter in the Stern family falls… They fall hard. Forever
Her love life in tatters and on the edge of losing both her home and her business, Casey Miller decides it isn’t such a bad idea to forget her troubles for a moment in the arms of a handsome and dangerous stranger.
Lucas Stern isn’t shy about what he wants with women, so when the sexy Casey crosses his path he isn’t going to turn down hot sex in the very public museum they find each other in.
But things make an unexpected turn when Casey discovers that Lucas is the man she wants to hire to handle a delicate problem she has at home. When things continue heating up between the two, they’re left to wonder if it’s just a fling or have they both experienced a taste of true love.
A sequel to "Taken by Love", we are brought into the world of the Sterns again, this time following the love adventures of the brother of the last book's hero. As with the first book, "Taste of Love" seems to tell both too much and too little story within the confines of the novella label. The overall story was more fleshed out then the first book and allowed me to get a little more invested in the story, but there still seemed to be something lacking. I think if the story had been fleshed out even more, given more room to breathe it would have been blown out of the park.
I can't say for certain if I will read any of the others in the series, but the idea behind these books is a good one. I, personally, just think that Winters needs to expand on the story to draw us in more so we care about what happens to the characters and we can understand their backgrounds more.
