Buy this book NOW! I've already read this book three times and I love it. This new series from talented BDSM writer Ms. Blevins is a winner. This is the story which Safeword Storm Clouds should have been. In this new series, there are character crossovers between the Safeword world. Let's see if you can find them as quickly as I could. And let's see if you recognize Kirsten.In this story, Kirsten is a human. That is all she is to her knowledge. She does have a special skill to help hunt supernat [...]
—5 stars! Amazing fell in love with H/h. First met the H in the book Duke & he sparked my interest straight away. If this is any indication of future books i'm all in. Auto buy
Kitty's review posted on Guilty Pleasures Book ReviewsWhenever I read Candace Blevins, I have some very distinct ideas of what to expect. I expect hot BDSM scenes, hot love scenes, characters with stamina and strong-willed women. I expect to be surprised and, most definitely, expect to be entertained. So, when the ARC of “Only Human” showed up on my Kindle, I was excited, thrilled and ready to read a hot, steamy, sex-filled, BDSM romance. Well, I didn’t get what I expected. What I got was [...]
I received an ARC from the Author in Exchange for an honest Review I wasn't sure what to expect when I decided to read this book since it was first time read a book from this author. This was a well written book and I really enjoyed to book. I really loved all the characters but Kristen is kick-a$$ female and a strong female even though she is a submissive she says it like it is. I also enjoyed Abbott who is the sexy vampire that is interested in Kristen and also a Dom too. The sexual build up b [...]
DNF at 52%Yet another story about a human woman with super duper amazingly special skills and a master vampire who is lusting after herAdmittedly, the bdsm aspect in an UF series felt new and different, and I usually like that sort of thing, but I was unable to gel with any of the characters. Therapist at day,Buffymonster hunter at night? Nah, not feeling it. Moving on to better books.
I have to admit that I have read the world of Kirsten O'Shea out of order so I already knew about some of the characters in this book. That being said - I really, really enjoyed this book. Kirsten O'Shea isn't your typical human, she has special powers that allows her to fight against the EVIL supernatural that are walking around. Kirsten O'Shea is a sex therapist by day and a badass by night. I haven't enjoyed a female character this much in a long time.Kirsten is a dominate female and doesn't [...]
I don't really have a lot to say about this book, it has a lot of high ratings but it just didn't work for me and I only made it to about 34% before I gave up on it.It's not badly written but I felt it was trying to do too many things at once and not quite hitting the mark on any of them. The main character Kristen is a sex therapist by day and a demon hunter by night which makes for an interesting combination. She's into the BDSM lifestyle which is something you don't tend to see much of in UF [...]
Honestly, I'm kind of mad that I wasted so much time waiting for this book to get better. I wanted it to be good, and it's just not. Stylistically, it's clunky and awkward, and the excessively long, clinical explanations drag down an already overencumbered plot. There are way too many alpha male types, all of whom seem to fawn over the main character within moments of meeting her, and she herself comes across as reckless and stubborn poorly spun in an attempt to appear daring and independent. In [...]
This book grabbed me from the first paragraph! It's Urban Fantasy loaded with supernaturals, a plethora of sexy, Dominant men and a sexually submissive female protagonist that holds her own among them all, even if she isOnly Human.I have been reading Ms. Blevins' books for years, love her Safeword series and have stretched my boundaries with each new book. This new series is a departure in that it is firmly in the UF genre, with the world-building accomplished in a skilled manner that avoids the [...]
It’s been quite awhile since I’ve read a true Urban Fantasy book and I hadn’t realized how much I’d missed it. Candace Blevins’ Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club series is an auto-buy buy for me, and the Kirsten O’Shea series is linked to it through several of the characters. The second book in the series is coming out this month so I thought this would be a perfect time to read Only Human.First, I have to admit that what held me back from reading Only Human is the fact that Kirsten is [...]
~~~Received ARC from the Author in Exchange for a Review~~ I have to admit I was a bit wary that Candace’s writing would change when she mentioned writing this book. I’ve loved all her books and was like OK surewith a bit of reservation. But she hits it out of the ball park and just proves what a remarkable writer she is. Her same style with the full personalities of her characters and with a full variety of species, this only added another layer to her already brilliant style.Who can for ge [...]
I'm trying to think of the best word for this and all I can come up with is awe. I am in absolute awe of Candace Blevins. This book is mind blowing in the best possible way. I haven't read much in the UF genre but the world building in this book was incredible and the characters were fascintating. I'm sad that we have to wait to find out the rest of this story but at least it's not a cliff hanger of an ending. There are several bdsm scenes though they were not as extreme as some of those in the [...]
What utter rubbish i can't believe the great ratings this book got, I thought I had reached a new low when I started reading a book about an amish vampire, boy was I wrong.Please let me introduce you to kirsten o'shea sex therapist by day and super hero the "BDSM LADY" by night. In other words 50 shades of grey meets PNR and my first nominee for the "Bad Apple Awards" for 2015 (if that doesn't exist it should). I like a good book with a kick ass leading lady but not only is this an incredibly cl [...]
Ummmmm.wiggles in chair and licks lips and rubs the bit of drool off my kindle. well !!!! First off, let me say this. I read both Only human and An Unhuman journey in about 4 days flat I'm thinking it was more like 3, because I was reading other stuff in between and when I say stuff not to demean the stories I did read but they became stuff while I took a break from this little baby. Next off I have stayed away from BDSM books for a while now1. most of the books I have read are not BDSM, but tag [...]
Reviewed by Jaycee for BOOKS 'N COZY SPOTS BOOK REVIEWS, Talon-psPurchased at I can’t recall when last I was this excited about a new series, nor when last I was captivated before the end of the first page of a book. This story isn’t just about magic; it IS magic and I’m both hooked and dismayed that I have to wait until later in 2015 for the next Kirsten O’Shea adventure. But wait I will, and meantime I will expound on the virtues of book one:Right out of the gate is the uncomplicated t [...]
I have had this book on my Kindle for a while, but kept avoiding it. Kirsten never really appealed to me as a character in The Safeword Series, so I wasn’t sure about a whole book dedicated to her. That was clearly a mistake on my part. Given her character in The Safeword Series, I expected Kirsten to be tough, but not an ass-kicking, laser wielding, demon slayer. No wonder she always seemed a little distant in The Safeword Series. This book is very much like The Dragon King, where we get a bl [...]
It is great to read about a strong sexy heroine over thirty. Weird when the 34-year-old mom, therapist, submissive and demon-fighter refers to herself as middle-aged. That aside, Only Human is another great Urban-Fantasy PNR with a strong spicing of hot BDSM erotica. I totally love Kirsten O’Shea and I’m totally glad I have Dragon King in my TBR, because I like Aaron more and more. He may be vanilla, but he’s a lot more sexy than Kirsten’s trainer James. The scenes between the two of the [...]
New author to me. I liked the story but wanted a little more heat. Coming from an author who does bdsm I expected a little more heat with the kink. It was a little cold to me but the UF part was great. I will read more! Also seems like possible man harem set up like merry gentry series but I hope not! Just hope the talk of all the yummy men will mean their own stories.There were also some spelling/grammar errors but this doesn't bother me.
I must have missed something, I am confused. The BDSM was not really there, and I kept losing track of who is who and who is the real alpha, and whose power does what, and well Kristen kinda pissed me off.
Candace Blevins incredibly vivid imagination and mastery of her craft has given us, the reader, an enthralling and mesmerizing look into her urban fantasy world. Vampires, shape shifters, and werewolves abound as well as a human female with metaphysical powers. Kirsten O'Shea is strong, Alpha, self aware ans a warrior but she is also a woman, a mother, a submissive and a deeply loyal friend. She gets drawn deeper into the paranormal world because of her unique abilities. She meets and cultivates [...]
What the blurb doesn't make clear, is the heavy D/s and BDSM lifestyle influence in the book--not a bad thing, but to me, a distraction from a really wonderful, intense story line and some strong, interesting characters. Nothing against the Lifestyle, but I have no interest in this level of D/s detail (based on my own knowledge of D/s relationships, I found the scenes and emotional connections to be very accurate-so Lifestylers will probably love this part of the storyline). I'm on the fence abo [...]
Excellent!Kirsten is an amazing Human. She has powers that makes her like her Supernatural friends, lion shifter, werewolves, Vampires. She helps them fight against the bad guys.She has adopted a daughter from China who is 16, & an exchange student also from China who's in college, they have a very loving household. Well I'm off to the next book in the 3 Series. They're written so that they meld together with the characters.Enjoy!!!
I started with the Rolling Thunder MC series. But this is the first book you should read with the others in between the Kristen series. Kristen is human or so she thinks she is. But she can do things that no other human in perhaps thousands of year have been able to do. Plus she is attracting the attention of some really powerful and bad people. Kristen is a mother, a therapist and then a slayer of evil.
A new kind of read for meI've read many of Candace Blevins's books and have enjoyed them all. This was not her usual style but I can't help but think this book was a great start to her series. It doesn't end in a cliff hanger but I'm looking forward to the next story all the same. The storyline kept me intrigued with how well it was written. I enjoyed the banter between all the characters and how well the lead female character stayed true to herself.
DNF at 22%The story idea is interesting. Sounded hopeful. I just can't hang with the author's writing. Very mind numbing and doesn't pull me in. I don't want to read about who makes dinner and other similar page fillers. Book definitely needs more dialogue and less of an heroine that excels in everything.
So I forgot this story had BDSM elements at first and I was happily going through this paranormal story when BAM, let's throw in some D/S elements! Wow! It's a great paranormal story! It's a great BDSM story! Add them together and I'm blown away. Can't wait to read more!
This storyline so consumed me I had to keep reading it in one sitting! New to this type of urban fantasy, I had never encountered a person like Kirsten in my usual books. Loved the way the book introduced the new characters building to a very intense ending.I have read many of Candace's books and they do keep my interest easily and this one did more than that.Looking forward to the next one.
Not my cup of teaInteresting story line and characters but not really into the BDSM elements of the book.Wouldn't mind reading more of the story but the sex was to explicit for me.
GreatThis is a great book. I really enjoyed reading about Kirsten O'Shea. I love all of Candace Bleven' s books.
