SUMMARY
How far is too far to go to save someone you love?

Brandon Lynch is magical. He's a scintilla who can manipulate electricity. Leaving his structured, unexciting life and job at his father's billion-dollar business in Boston and heads south for a vacation adventure in Rio Rico, Arizona. He's living out a fantasy by traveling to the El Corazon adult entertainment club and has booked one glorious session with a werewolf Dom, complete with knotting.

Part-time Dom for his family business, the El Corazon, and full-time bounty hunter, Raul Fierro uses what nature gave him as a werewolf to bring pleasure to some, and justice to others. He hasn't been in a real relationship for longer than he wants to think about and his gruff and growly exterior keeps any unwanted interactions at bay. He's not against a partner, but he's willing to wait for the person who sees the real Raul—and his wolf—who lurks beneath the surface.

A seemingly chance meeting with Brandon the day after their scheduled session leads to a week-long affair. Raul accepts it for what it is, a vacation fling for Brandon even though Brandon is someone Raul could easily fall in love with. When Brandon returns to Boston and Raul resumes his normal routine, they keep in touch until the time Brandon's father arrives in Rio Rico, announces his son is missing, and he intends to hire Raul to find him. Raul wastes no time picking up Brandon's trail. Rescuing Brandon from human traffickers is only the beginning and more adventure than either man wanted. Their hunt brings them together in an unexpected way. Can they bring down a powerful, international ring of traffickers all while protecting each other and their new-found love?

SCINTILLA is the first book in the El Corazon series and we enter a world where supernaturals exist alongside 'normal' humans. As well as Werewolves, you have Scintillas (who can control electricity) and Prisms (who can reflect light), Jinnis, Leprachauns, as well as others that are only mentioned in passing.

Being the first book in the series, I was expecting gaps in the world-building. This is absolutely normal and stops the book from just becoming an info-dump. Hopefully, I will learn more about that world and the people who inhabit it in later books.

This is definitely romantic suspense with the story including child trafficking, which is never a 'nice' story to tell. SCINTILLA doesn't go into too much detail though, just enough that you can understand why Brandon and Raul do what they do.

The sex scenes are steamy but I'll be honest here, my eyes glazed over a bit when they started talking about electricity fields etc. I don't think my brain could cope with figuring out their positions as well as something else! I loved the unique take on it though!

I thoroughly enjoyed every word of this book and think the series has started off with a bang. Absolutely recommended and I can't wait to read more in this series.
