The Scent of a Soul by Jennifer Thompson

Paperback, 484 pages
Published December 8th 2012 by CreateSpace 
 Fleeing her recent past, Lilliah Woods finds refuge in the anonymity of the present day inner-city slums. As she settles into the seedy apartment she must now call home, she meets mysterious Marek Jamison when he materializes in her doorway demanding to know who she is. From that moment, he becomes a guardian and guide as she gradually discovers his hidden world.

As their relationship develops, Lilliah learns of Marek's dark past and of a brothers' quarrel he has been embroiled in for years. The quarrel turns into a larger battle of good and evil, liberty versus tyranny, and the separation of love and lust.

With Lilliah as the ultimate prize, the deadly conflict reaches out to threaten her family, and the outcome of the final battle will determine her fate. Lilliah must embark on an unexpected path that teaches her to trust in the man she has come to love, and give of herself as she never thought she could....

 Wow. This is one action packed debut! 

Lilliah was running from her abusive fiance and somehow ended up in the slums. She seems to attract danger. No matter what she does, danger comes her way. Between going to launder her clothes in the night, going on dates that she really shouldn't go on and being way too trusting, it's no wonder she saw Marek as a knight in shining armor. Well that and his accent, I mean swooon.

This was a super cute, romantic read with a wholeee lot of action. I thought that Marek was a little stalkerish at first, but then as the novel continued he was sort of her knight in shining armor.  Since I don't really know what to say about this, except a lot of random thoughts in this review.

Marek has a secret that could tear them apart and a brother who is the true definition o evil. Lilliah, well, she's very clumsy, seems to attract danger and has an ex- fiancee. 

A few problems I had with the book. It felt really long. After we got to the ranch it was less focused on our leading stars and more on the relationships of the others. Though Lilliah was an expert at messing up. 

Over all I liked the first half of the book was more than the second. The Scent of a Soul was very well written, just a bit lengthy.  

Thanks Jennifer for giving me a copy to review!!
