Book Review: Undeniable by Tawdra Kandle

Undeniable (The Serendipity Duet #1)
by Tawdra Kandle

only $.99 amazon
For Rafe Brooks, running from a broken heart means losing himself in alcohol and women. Lots of women, none of whom will remember him, since he has the ability to manipulate their minds and make them forget.

Numbing the pain works until he meets an irresistible redhead with secrets of her own. She offers him the opportunity to join forces with an organization that will use his powers for good rather than his own amusement.

Jocelyn rocks his world with her unapologetic passion and makes him believe for the first time he just might survive heartbreak.

When a mission takes the two of them undercover to infiltrate a commune with suspicious activity, they discover it's just the tip of a plot to cause world-wide anarchy. Hiding their extraordinary powers and real identities is crucial to staying alive.

For Rafe and Jocelyn, when life is uncertain, love is undeniable.

Note: This is a spin-off from The King Series.

Undeniable is the first book in a series written by Tawdra Kandle. It revolves around recent high school graduate, Rafe Brooks. In his attempt to move on after Tasmyn Vaughan breaks his heart, he leaves home and lands in the arms of Jocelyn Pennell, a beautiful red head that might just be the answer to all his problems, or the start of new ones.

This is the first book in the series, and I have to admit, I have mixed feelings. To start, I was unsure about the story being told from Rafe's the point of view, especially since it was a paranormal romance. I enjoy reading this genre from the heroine's perspective. I personally like a real hunk as my male lead, that knight in shining armor who sweeps the girl of her feet. Or maybe I should say, that alpha werewolf or head vampire, you know that guy. That’s the one I want and I wasn’t sure how the author could pull that off with Rafe telling the story. Well, the author didn’t give it to me, but she did manage to give me a rather likeable down to earth, everyday Joe. Well, he was everyday if we all had special powers. Even though he wasn’t my usual hunk, by the end of the story I liked him. He was cute and sincere but not a complete pushover.

I wish I could say that I liked everything about the story, but it definitely had some weaknesses. Where the story started out strong, it fell apart a little around the middle. It seemed to lose focus and I wasn’t really sure where the author was going. She kind of left me dangling for a couple chapters, wondering what this book was really about. Some characters were mentioned and given importance in the story only to disappear never to be heard from again. This caused the story to drag until we got closer to the end. The author redeems herself slightly with some surprises in the finish that completely threw me. I Love Surprises!!! I truly appreciate when an author throws me a curve ball. For that reason alone, I will probably give her next book a read.
