Review Breanna by Karen Nichols

Title: Breanna
Author: Karen Nichols
Source: Author request
Genre: Paranormal romance 
Length: Novel 

Breanna Cooper had a quiet kind of life. Her parents had loved her and pampered her; she worked hard to make her coffee and tea shop a success in the small tourist town of Newport on the coast of Washington. When she went to open the shop that one morning, everything turned upside down. One minute she was standing before the ornate door in early May and the next she was lying in front of a fireplace with a pair of men staring down at her. 

A blonde and a brunette. She closed her eyes, wondering if she were dreaming but when the tawny lashes opened, they were still there, sexy as ever. 

Then the sharp pain in her head made itself known. And she panicked.

Rating see below please

I have to rate this book different. Please read the whole review before deciding on buying this book at this time.

Story I rate a 5
Editing of the book a 1

Great story and great characters. This is a new author to keep a watch out for. I loved unwrapping the mystery behind Breanna’s past and fining out what two halves she’s mixed with. Breanna turns out to be very special plus she get’s two hunks to boot, you can’t ask for anything better. You get action, mystery, magic and some really hot sex with anal. This is a story that’s suited for the people who reads M/F/M Trio’s.

Breanna Cooper has always lived a quiet, safe life until her parent’s death. Her luck runs out when someone wants to kill her. Breanna has no idea until one morning she gets knocked out opening her coffee shop. She wakes to see two hot, mysterious men looking down on her.

Jase and Nick have been friends since childhood and have always loved sharing things with each other. When Jase sees a couple leave someone on the beach with a storm coming in, he has to go investigate. What Jase and Nick find is an unknown woman laying on the ground with blood everywhere who they realize is their mate.

While they untangle the mystery of who is hunting Breanna, sparks start flying. Can Breanna handle the two hot men calling to her and the mystery she is about to unravel about herself?

These three are awesome together. Jase and Nick are very easy to fall for because they will do anything to insure their mate gets what she needs and wants period.

Now here’s the downside for this book. If you buy this story now you won’t get any chapter breaks and you’ll find changing of POV without notice in one scene. Proofing issues and more, there are quite a few issues I’m not going to list them all. As of right now until the editing is done you’ll have to look over these issues and just read the story.  If you’re one that wants to read a book in it’s complete edited state please wait, I will let you guys know when this book is completely edited. If your one who just wants a good story and can careless about these issues please go ahead and try it.


“It’s called a triad,” Brea said quietly. “I have friends in Arizona who live in one. I never thought about it for me only because I never thought I’d care for one man, let alone two. And how should I have handled it? I pretend it’s just you and I while Nick hides in the closet? How is that healthy? How is it fair or right? It’s a lie and I won’t consciously live a lie. If that’s what you wanted, then you don’t know me very well and maybe you should have considered that before you staked a claim,” she left them standing in the living room and went into the kitchen, laying out the dinner she’d prepared.

She was furious. With them. With society. With all the people who want you to pretend in the world so their little corner is nice and comfortable and fits into a neat little box.


  1. Great review. Sounds interesting. We are big fans of wolves in general and happy to say Oregon recently spotted some. Not sure if they occasionally lounge around in the all-together and flash their bedroom eyes. But hope springs eternal.

  2. Great review Laurie! Thanks for the heads up about the editing. How disappointing for the author. Hopefully, the next reissue will be better.

  3. Cowboysandvampire- Thanks! Yes, it a very interesting read.

    Redzsm-Thanks. It will be better because I know her editor so I can wait to see what the final copy will look like.

  4. I agree with the review. The story is great. I even want to know more about parents, grandfather and etc. She can definitely spin a story.

    However, the quick change of POV did disrupt my flow of reading from time to time. Maybe she needs more development when she does her transitions.

    I had more problems with the layout of the actual book. I think I would have enjoyed the story better if the formatting, headings, quotes, and such was better utilized. I counted more than five times when the text was centered and or italicized even though it was not a quote or title. I blame this on the editors/publishers. Some formats gets messed up when you convert it to the other formats such as html.
