Caught in the Glow by Eva Chase
Posted by brriske
When she was a child, Avery Harmen watched her father die at the hands of a Glower–a breed of demon that feeds on dreams of fame and glory. Now she secretly protects the rising stars of Los Angeles from the demons that prey on them, determined to make sure her clients never suffer the same fate.
Then Avery finds herself assigned to Colin Ryder, a young indie rocker who just landed a major label deal. Colin is cocky, rebellious, a brilliant musician, and already in the Glowers’ sights. He’s also far too hot for Avery to ignore the chemistry between them–especially when she gets to know the tender side behind his celebrity facade. Though Avery knows she’s falling too fast, she’s willing to risk heartbreak if fanning the flames of attraction distracts Colin from his Glower-tempting antics. But Colin is keeping a secret of his own, one so big it will put both her heart and his soul on the line.
The first book in The Glower Chronicles, a steamy New Adult paranormal series.
Each book in The Glower Chronicles contains a stand-alone romance, but it is recommended that you read them in order to best appreciate the ongoing subplots
When Avery Harmen was seven years old, she discovered just how real those demons, Glowers, were when she and her mother found her rock star father having overdosed. Because she could now see the Glowers, Avery was recruited to be a member of the Tether Society and charged with being the person who would tether a fame junkie to the mundane world and remind him or her that there were ordinary things worth living for. When Avery is assigned to a plast from her past, Colin Ryder, she doesn’t realize just how difficult her task is going to be.
I really enjoyed this book and the world that the author has created. I’m always interested in an author who can take an ordinary idea like the metaphorical demons gathering around celebrities and other fame junkies and turn that into a paranormal reality without making it feel contrived. I am looking forward to future outings in the Demons of Fame series. There are a few steamy scenes, so I would only recommend this book for adult readers.
