The romance is A+ but I was also pleased with how solid the rest of the story was, with fairy politics that increasingly close in on the main characters and the MC's struggle to control his weird powers. I've seen both these things done in hackneyed ways, but here it felt totally solid and believable, with risks and costs (and failures!) that lent a sense of genuine suspense and urgency.
Today's book rec: Prince of Air and Darkness by M. A. Grant. Modern fantasy romance. Solid enemies to lovers content. A+ grumpy sexual tension and the pining is pretty volcanic.
Note it starts out with a torture scene, which is relevant to the plot but not representative of the book's tone. So for anybody who might hit that and nope out on the basis that they don't want grimdark--it's not grimdark. Actually most of these characters are a lil bit adorable, if somewhat hapless.
A moment after this, this young fellow's eyes met mine, he did the baby begging wing twitch and then flew over to land on top of my cell phone and investigate me from inches away for a good minute. I dared not move.
