Quentin Caeravorn is the newest Sentinel, a career criminal, and Pia's friend. He's considered a triple threat because he's part Wyr, Elven and Dark Fae, but Aryal doesn't trust him and is determined to find his secrets to destroy him.

Aryal is a harpy, brought into existence at the beginning of the World, she's tenacious, fierce, loyal, wild and unpredictable and will attack you just as soon as look at you. She will bring Quentin down no matter what it takes, even if that means she has to kill him.

From the beginning the animosity between these two is palpable and when their fight turns into a battle royale in the Tower, Dragos banishes them to sort their shit or don't come back.
Once I fell into the Wyr world and let go of my 'human' sensibilities I was able to really appreciate and enjoy their kinky dance from hate sex, to their kinky games and their brand of emotional expression. Wyrs and harpies are not human and the author made that a reality as she pulled me into their world and helped me see the many layers of these two characters.

There are uncomfortable and cringe worthy moments but they fit for this couple and made the evolution of their relationship blaze that much brighter for me. I felt their passion as well as their sorrows, They were perfect for each other. I loved it, but it may be difficult for sensitive readers.

They are violent with each other and their brand of sex may be difficult for sensitive readers.

Favorite quote:

'Can you control her?'
'Of course I can control her,' said Quentin nastily, 'Every time she lets me.'"

Kinked
4 Stars

To say that Aryal, the Harpy Sentinel, and Quentin, the new panther Sentinel, despise one another is an understatement. These to adversaries are hell bent on murder and mayhem until they go too far and Dragos decides to banish them from the Wyr demesne. Forced to work together in the post-apocalyptic Elven land, will Quentin and Aryal overcome their history or die in the attempt?

Love/Hate relationships are one of my absolute favorite tropes and this one is fantastic. Aryal and Quentin have been minor characters in the series thus far but their fierce animosity and intense chemistry makes them both engaging characters.

The journey through the dying Elven land has its heart-wrenching and exciting moments, but it is Quentin and Aryal's romance that takes center stage. It is fun watching them work through their hostilities and misconceptions to become true partners and lovers.

There are several weak points in book such as the BDSM element, which is both underdeveloped and unnecessary both to the characterization and the plot line, and the fact that Quentin and Aryal are too accepting of their mating, especially considering their past enmity. Moreover, Quentin’s big secret is glossed over too easily and the villain’s history and motivation feel somewhat tacked on.

Nevertheless, Kinked is a fast paced, action packed and steamy read and it is obvious that Harrison has more up her sleeve for the future of the Elder Races. ( )

Amazing!

I was not sure if I would like Aryal’s story. I hated her from the moment I meet her in [b:Dragon Bound|9637479|Dragon Bound (Elder Races, #1)|Thea Harrison|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1312822853s/9637479.jpg|14524855]. She is such a bitch with a capital B and the way she treats Pia. Ahhh!

Wow, Thea changed my mind on her character with this novel.

Kinked blew me away! I loved the humor, action, adventure, and the massed up love/connection; between Quentin and Aryal. The main characters complement each other and it worked beautifully. I see Aryal in a new light now.

The Elder Races series is one of my favorite paranormal romance series and I highly recommend it for paranormal romance lovers.

Rated: 5 Kinked Stars


Some of my favorite quotes from Kinked:

"Her life was one eternal rampage. Maybe it was time someone turned the tables on her and went after her with the same kind of relentlessness with which she went after the entire world."
"And maybe it was past time that someone took that harpy down a peg or two, and showed her who was boss.”

“As the panther found peace, the harpy stroked his hair and discovered tenderness.”

“You really do poop sparkly rainbows."

Ariel and Quentin do not get along to the point that Dragos, Lord of the Wyr sends them away to learn to get along - or else. I particularly liked this book in the series because of the sparring between the characters and that they were both less than perfect. ( )
