SUMMARY
The day Miranda Billings dies isn't the worst day of her life-but it's close. Miranda dreams of adventure and escaping her boring existence, but death might be too much of an escape. With the help of Andre the demon slayer, she discovers the excitement she craves. If only he'd let her share his quest as well as his bed.

When Andre, the half-demon EMT, finds the woman he loves crushed by a bus, he reawakens her soul with his magic and his blood. Now, Andre must decide if he's willing to let her join him in his perilous quest to slay demons and save humans. He almost lost her once. Is he willing to risk losing her forever?

This story has such an interesting plot line with the main character Miranda, your average shy nurse working and keeping to herself until things drastically changed when she died. The man that she'd been secretly having a crush on for weeks, the sexy EMT worker Andre, was more than what Miranda expected, shocking her when she woke up after her accident to find him staring down at her and quickly finding out that he had deep dark secrets of his own. He wasn't human and after her accident, she wasn't quite human either.

SWEET RELEASE had such potential to be a great quest for Miranda at finding out what happened to her and who she was now and who she was really meant to be. Plus add in the super hot romance between her and Andre. With a storyline like that, I was instantly drawn into the story, wanting to know what was in store for Miranda and Andre. Though the story did touch on the topic and the steamy hot romance, I wanted to be engulfed in it.

Overall though, the story lacked real depth and development with the world building as well as in the relationships. Everything that had happened, which were interesting and intensely good, happened way too fast for me. The story felt rushed and I didn't get a chance to really connect with the characters or their world like I wanted to, which was a total let down.

Now don't get me wrong, because I did enjoy the story. I just wanted more of it!

What I liked about the story was the connection and history that Miranda and Andre have with each other, and though it was brief, I knew that what they felt was real. I enjoyed the world that Ms. Pulkinen created and the potential it has with its characters and situations that could happen in the vast world. I'm wondering if this is the start of a way bigger series. I wish it is because Ms. Pulkinen has captured my attention.
