BOOK REVIEW...Intractable Souls by Tricia Daniels

Title:  Intractable Souls
Author:  Tricia Daniels
Publication Date: October 17th 2013 by Tricia Daniels
Goodreads URL: HERE
Plot:  It’s been years since brilliant IT consultant Olivia James, fell for a man who had a deeply hidden compulsion to violence and control. Left healing physically and emotionally, she became a shadow of the confident woman she used to be. That is, until she meets Ethan O’Connell, a man who makes her burn with a powerful desire. Haunted by fear and insecurity, she desperately tries to resist him, doing all the right things to protect her heart, but she is betrayed by her desires and her attraction to confident men. With stubborn perseverance, he ignores her attempts to push him away, leaving her wanting, desiring his love, needing it to feel alive and whole.
Ethan O’Connell is extremely successful in his businesses, with a seriously sexy Irish accent and a lethal kind of flare and charm. More than any one man should ever possess. Ethan knew, from the very first moment that he saw her that she is meant to be his. Used to getting the things he wants, he is determined to have her and struggles to control his Irish temper, the reason for his own troubled past. Olivia James is the woman that makes him want more, the kind of girl who would make any man think about forever. Afraid that he can’t live without her and unwilling to lose her, he hides his secrets and ignores his dark desires and fantasies of control.
Eccentric Psychic, Eva Storm is drawn to the energy around them. She knows that they are soul mates bound by past lives and helps the universe steer them together. Ethan is hesitant to believe at first, but there are things he can’t ignore. Things he couldn’t possibly know, but does. Neither of them can deny the dreams and memories that they both share, but Olivia is too afraid to believe and not willing to trust her heart.
Convinced that she is “THE ONLY ONE” for him, Ethan refuses to walk away, vowing that he will never give up on her, even if it means he has to fight hard enough for both of them. Can he control his temper and his needs in order to keep her in his life? Can she heal her past wounds and let him in? Like no other woman in his life, Olivia challenges him with her strong will and sharp sense of humor, making him wonder if she could ever become a willing captive of his dominance. Ethan hopes with all his heart that she will become equally addicted to his love, and a sneaky suspicion that falling in love with Olivia James is about to bring on a shift in the balance of power in his world.




WOW, MY EMOTIONS ARE ALL OVER THE PLACE!! In a good way, that is. ;)

Intractable Souls had a very original and solid story line and plot that kept me wanting more. The characters engaged me and the pacing kept me interested.

I liked how the author concocts everything based on a solid foundation rather than characters just rushing into things or literally giving into the moment. Both characters have pasts that could make them or break them but feel such a compulsion for one another that they can’t stay away from one another.

I was floored with the amount of detail that Tricia (the author) puts into the entire outline of the characters, their dialogues, and what’s going on in the story at the moment. I am one of those readers who hates, hates plots where there is no substance or quality towards the story development and character growth so this was a definite A+ in my book.

As for how the book ends, it was quite anti-climatic wouldn’t you say? I mean, it literally leaves you hanging and wanting for some more already. Usually, I loathe when that kind of thing happens but with Tricia’s brilliant writing style, I think I can live to read what happens next in Ethan and Olivia’s love story.

Definitely, a story that I strongly suggest readers to embark on!! There were moments where I literally: laughed out loud
got hot and bothered
and got so enraptured in the story that my dad dropped a
rice bag in my lap to get my attention because he thought I
was spazzing out! lol

Gah, I’m already itching for book two already!! Argh!!



My Rating:

-Overall : 8.5
-Plot : 8.5
-Writing : 8.5
-Characters : 8.5
-Cover : 8.5-9
