I do love me some angels and demons ;) This book was a great, unique story filled with tension, mystery, and some serious hotness! Loved the characters, love the plots. Definitely an awesome start to a series.

The author immediately connects the reader to the female MC as she survives a brutal attempted date rape and murder. She had warning bells telling her the guy was bad news, but she ignored the signs and it almost cost her her life. I immediately empathized with her. It was a smart move on the author's part to start this story with a bang.

Sadly, by 10% the bang was moot and I wasn't so inclined to like the female MC.

Let me preface by saying I'm NOT blaming the victim by any means. Wh

Mica's mother has died and she has to leave the place she has lived all her life and move to her father's home with his second family. She is not happy about it. Being rescued after being attacked by a boy from school, Mica's life changes. Who are these protectors? Why is she changing after being around these men? I loved this book. It's the first of a series. Something is happening to Mica and she is gaining these abilities but her protectors (Sean, Declan, and Killian) do not know why. When sh ...more

I love this series!
The story is of the Primani made from the blood of arch angels and the humans they oversee and protect is a refreshing and unique read. I loved the pace of the series but at times would have liked a more in depth back story on some of the characters.
The characters are strong and engaging. Each could have their own book, mix them together tho and you get one hell of a ride!
The writing style took some getting used to in the first book but as the series went on the a

Primani was recommended to me and I'm so glad it was, at first it seemed to lack continuity but then as I continued reading it started to come together. The Angels Killian Sean and Dec vied for pole position in my heart and Sean won. The story is riveting Angels and Demons fighting to protect humans I slept knowing I was safe!! I could not put it down, quickly moving on to book too more like this I hope

Okay! So this book rocked hard! Laurie has created a world where love, family, and the powers of the Heavens dominate! A must read! If you don't fall in love with Primani..... your crazy.

This book is amazing! It had romance, action, suspense! I fell in love with the characters. I didn't want to put the book down because I was always wondering what's going to happen next! Loved it!

I just ordered book #2 because I'm so frustrated from unanswered questions from part one. I have to say its good to read a trilogy with books with over 400 pages each book.

The problem with this book which lost it stars was that it didn't answer things you waited for even when the Chapter said they would be answered. Mica is an 18 year old girl who we meet in the beginning who is beaten and tortured by a crazy guy and rescued by 3 mysterious guys. She wakes in the hospital badly injur

I started this series on book #4-Broken Souls. I have to say, I see the improvement in writing in book 4. Though I do feel it could be the portrayal of the main character 'Mica Thomas' who is a teen. It portrays her view often in this book. So I did often feel like I was in the head of a teenager. I found a few inconsistencies in the reactions between Mica and her parents. One minute they were nonchalant of her disappearing for days then next upset...I didn't quite get that. But I looked beyond ...more

I hate that Goodreads doesn't offer halfs - I'd give this book 4.5. It started off great with an excellent story but I wasn't totally hooked. I was enjoying it but couldn't seem to "connect" with the characters. Close to half way through I was sooooo hooked!!! I couldn't put it down. I've fallen madly in love with Sean, Killian & Dec - I can't even pick a favorite. Although I admit I have a thing for the tortured bad boy <3 Killian. And Mica totally grew on me! She got tough & strong ...more

This is a story about Mica, a young girl and a survivor. She has endured a lot in her young life - the death of her mom and a brutal attack. As Mica tries to get her life back to normal, she discovers that there was more happening in her life than she thought. The sudden appearance of Sean and his "brothers" Dec and Killian in her life becomes a mystery that Mica is trying to unravel. What she discovers changes her life forever.

I have had this book in my kindle hoard for a long time.

I enjoyed this book a lot. The writing was vivid and really helped you to place yourself in the scene. I enjoyed the plot line and really liked how we got to see the main character Mica develop.

I found that the scene transitions were too abrupt and that there were pieces of the story that were just left to hang. It seemed like characters and events were 'inconvenient' and so were never addressed or brought up again. I'm all for leaving the reader guessing (that's what draws you in).

What a rollercoaster!

This book had it all: action, thrills, good guys, bad guys,family,friends,love and many forms of the power of thought. Sexual tension was high and there was consummation. It started out a little slow and juvenile, but like the lead female character, the book grew and came into it's own. There is a cliff hanger (I hate it when that happens), but it was a good place to end the first book.

Would I recommend it? Yes
Will I read the rest of the series? Most definitely!

I was lucky enough to win a copy of this through goodread's first reads so thank you. This action packed paranormal romance tells the story of Mica Thomas who, at the beginning has been savagely attacked and left for dead, and after Sean and his family move into the small town she lives in his already chaotic life is about to get even more eventful. A little slow in places but a really good debut, will leave you with so many question that you will have to read the next one. Can't wait.

Kind of slow to start, but once it got going, really liked it. Looking forward to next book in series. Still many unanswered questions for me, so am looking forward to learning more about the characters. Strong novel for a self-published debut (transitions sometimes felt abrupt, but strong character development made up for it). It is a good mix of urban fantasy, paranormal romance, and adventure.

Couldn't put it down!

Review copy provided via Reading Alley in exchange for an honest review.

I love a strong female lead character and Mica sure fits the bill. After surviving a brutal attack she vows not to be a victim again. All the lead characters were well developed and written. A thoroughly enjoyable read, I would give it 4 1/2 stars if I could, I look forward to reading the next installment of the series.

Unique, fast-paced read with butt kicking action and captivating relationships.

I enjoyed Primani (received in Goodreads First Reads Giveaway). I currently live in upstate New York, so I enjoyed the references to familiar places. Thank you again for the opportunity to read Primani...I will be continuing the series!
Great series!!! WOW loved it from page one. It was a rollercoaster of a ride right till the very end. The characters were believable and what a story. I'm hooked I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

Good plot, laid the framework for the next book. A bit slow at first but then you cannot stop reading till the end. At least I couldn't.

I really wasn't sure about this book when I bought it. Angels and Demons really weren't my thing, but the premise intrigued me.
Mica seems to get herself into many life-threatening positions, keeping Sean the Primani assigned to her busy. Not only is Mica young, she is also a dare-devil and she has set her eyes on this Primani for more than just protection.
A rollercoaster of emotions, with danger at every turn as Mica challenges Sean every chance she gets.

Liked it!

I really do like this story. Sean is the typical serious soldier until Mica gets under his skin. I enjoyed how she gets him to open up. The torture bit from the psycho Scott was definitely not enjoyable, but I loved how Mica used the experience to get stronger. It also put Sean in Mica's life and changed it forever. There are still mysteries however and cliffhangers are really annoying.

now i am hooked. This was such a great, easy and creative book. i was hooked after the first page.

The characters were easy to fall in love with and follow, along with the story. the author made the mental visions so easy and vivid of the surroundings and the characters actions felt so real.

i would highly recommend this author and this book.
