Publisher: J. Taylor Publishing (October 1, 2011)
Format: Kindle Novel
Source: Purchased
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Intended audience: 18+, strong language, adult themes, some violence.

Lila Gray is just a human—at least that’s her mantra when she accidentally topples a building or bends a paranoid local's gun into modern art. That she can sense and control the minds around her doesn’t prove anything, either. Unwilling to put others at risk, she hides in the wilderness from the beautiful creature who hunts her, one who sees her as his ultimate prize.

Alone, the egocentric Glass Man can kill with a thought. Mated with Lila, he's a supernatural weapon prepared to annihilate the humans he loathes.

Caught in the Glass Man’s latest scheme, Lila is plunged into a hidden fae realm, faced with a secret birthright and a forbidden romance.

With the Glass Man threatening everyone she loves, can Lila accept who she is in time to end his bloody reign? Or will she succumb to his dark power and become the vehicle of destruction for the human race?

Review: The Glass Man by Jocelyn Adams swirls in a heady display of romance, adventure, and a struggle for the light and dark that readers of paranormal romance won’t want to miss out on!

Lila Gray believed all her life that she was human, even if she was a bit extraordinary. But as soon as she stumbles upon a small farm, her world is turned upside down. Not only is she a Seelie, or one of the fae, but she’s also their queen since her mother’s death. The Glass Man—King of the Unseelie Court—wants nothing more than to join with her to destroy the human race. There’s one problem, though. Lila already is Goddess-mated with another. The Glass Man threatens all she loves, but can she find the strength to resist his dark temptation? 

The Glass Man throws the reader right into Lila’s destroyed world. We experience who she is and what she is with her. Lila is a strong character, but she can’t ignore her fae temptations. The other characters are well-thought out and come across as deep, three-dimensional characters the more I read of the novel. The plot is fast-paced. The romance burns with its fiery passion. The introduction of various creatures adds to the overall story. One of my favorites is the shapeshifting houses, which I found to be a unique element to this fantastic story.

Take one-part dystopian, add in hot romance and faeries, then you have Jocelyn Adams’ The Glass Man.
