[Review] - The Calling by Ashley Lynn Willis

Title: The Calling
Author: Ashley Lynn Willis
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Paranormal
Release Date: October 28, 2011

I received this book for review from the author.

Summary:  Mandy Hardy lost more than a breast to cancer; she lost her fiancĂ© when he dumped her a week before her mastectomy. Her ego bruised and her self-esteem battered, Mandy’s sure she’ll never fall in love again.

Justin Seward is a headstrong Coast Guard Rescue Swimmer with a heart of gold and the supernatural ability to command the seas. He had to hide his feelings while Mandy was engaged to his best friend. Now that she’s free, he’s vowed to make her his.

Together, they may hold the key to each others salvation. But when Justin’s past catches up with him, and Mandy’s ex-fiancĂ© wants vengeance, they realize they might not live long enough for happily ever after.

Thoughts: Mandy is a survivor of breast cancer. But also a survivor of heartbreak. She feels she'll never fall in love again. But if Justin has anything to say about it - he is gonna make her his. He's had a thing for her, for a long while and he's not giving up now that she's single.

Beautiful story and definitely a keeper. I was absolutely engrossed with this book that I ended up finishing in less than a day. Contemporary romance isn't my go to genre but I loved this story and the two lead characters Mandy and Justin.  They were engaging and pulled me in fast. The Calling is heartwarming but also suspenseful and filled with danger.  The story also has a light paranormal feel that will interest mythology fans. No matter what genre of romance you enjoy, you should check this one out.

Score: 5 Stars
