Review of Siren Song by Stephanie Draven

Description of Siren Song:

When the sexy lead singer of an Annapolis indie band is accused of luring midshipmen to their deaths, she learns she’s not the only one with a killer voice…

No one can resist Chloe Karras when she sings—except for the sexy naval officer who is seemingly immune to her sensual allure. Maybe that’s why Captain Alex Shore is just the man she wants to take home after her performance—until he tells her what she thought were imagined powers are real…and dangerous.

Alexandros knows firsthand how seductive sirens are, as well as their potential to destroy. Yet the former sea soldier feels a powerful attraction to the beautiful rock singer that goes beyond her spell. Can he banish Chloe from the town he’s vowed to protect—or will he be drawn into the siren’s bed?

My Review:

I loved this quick and sexy little read. At novella length I could almost devour it in one sitting.

Being shorter than a novel everything was fast paced from the meeting of the two main characters to them ending up with a connection- could the relationship development have been dragged out farther, maybe but I know I get antsy sometimes with full length novels where the connection takes too long.

Chloe and Alex meet and instantly there's a connection- but he fights it and she wonders why he acts like he hates her from the moment they meet.

Chloe's had a traumatic past and now her sexy and dangerous voice can do damage. But her pure heart wouldn't let her hurt anyone, would it?

Someone is killing men. Alex has to find out if it's Chloe and stop her - but is it Chloe? And can he resist her long enough to find out?

I would have loved to see more character development but I know with it being a novella everything is crammed into such a small package that completely fleshing everything out is impossible.

All in all I loved this book- found sirens and Triton's to be fresh new types of characters that I can enjoy reading about.

I hope to read more from this author.
