XPRESSO BOOKS : "Gargoyle Addiction" by Livia Olteano **REVIEW ADDED**

Gargoyle Addiction by Livia Olteano
Series: Otherworlds Summons #1
Publication date: July 2013
Genre: NA Paranormal Romance


Summonari don’t trust. Under their command, they summon any number of creatures from the Otherwolds—but never trust them outside of the summoning.

Gargoyles don’t love. Fierce descendants of dragons, they function on power and fear—never love.

Karla isn’t the happily-ever-after type of girl. No territory-hungry guy is going to stick flags all over her unclaimed grounds.
Kann’s world is death and betrayal. As Dar Primus of Haus Varis, he’s expected to follow tradition but he’s not your regular gargoyle. In fact, he’s anything but.

One fateful Friday night, Otherworlds collide. Stuck together in one world or another, Karla and Kann face everything from Awakenings and turbulent love to Festnavals and bloodthirsty scorned suitors.
If there’s one thing they can’t escape, it’s the addiction to each other. And they’ve got it bad.

Livia lives in Europe where she listens to obscene amounts of music and devours every reading material in sight. When she’s not doing either of the two, she fiddles with anything remotely customizable within reach.

I can honestly say, I've never read a book like this one!  But i find it hard to believe that when you read the storyline! It must have been done previously, but me personally haven't read one!

So we start with Kayla. A happy singleton who just celebrates her birthday at her best friends (gay) club and with her other best friend.  
She gets home (not very steadily!) to find a present on the bed from the other friend, Mike. Its a readers advanced copy of her favourite series and shes overjoyed and cannot help but curl up to read it THAT second.

She falls asleep.

She wakes up to find the Hunky villain of the series sitting in her chair!
Of course its full of chemistry and not smooth sailing.  This character from her book, Kann falls totally for Kayla and immediately initiates a mating and a numate (a Gargoyle equivalent of a wedding) within days!

Karla has great trouble with all this, cant believe hes there - real and just like in the book. So he arranges to see the author where she reveals her sources.
Kayla ends up going back to his world as his new bride, but of course not smooth sailing.

its a light read, yes theres sex in it but i don't think excessively.  The chemistry is always there (well, imagine your hunky villain came to life, you couldn't help it could you!), and you also get to see Kann's POV, which shows he truly does care for Karla, but for a Gargoyle to show those type of feelings is weak...

So the question is.....can Kann over come this? Can he do enough to keep Karla?

Read in 2 nights, good read, but it seems to say its the first of the series, I'm not sure if that will work, i liked this as a stand alone novel, but we'll see i guess!
