When she was a child, Avery Harmen watched her father die at the hands of a Glower–a breed of demon that feeds on dreams of fame and glory. Now she secretly protects the rising stars of Los Angeles from the demons that prey on them, determined to make sure her clients never suffer the same fate.
Then Avery finds herself assigned to Colin Ryder, a young indie rocker who just landed a major label deal. Colin is cocky, rebellious, a brilliant musician, and already in the Glowers' sights. He's also far too hot for Avery to ignore the chemistry between them–especially when she gets to know the tender side behind his celebrity facade. Though Avery knows she's falling too fast, she's willing to risk heartbreak if fanning the flames of attraction distracts Colin from his Glower-tempting antics. But Colin is keeping a secret of his own, one so big it will put both her heart and his soul on the line.
The first book in The Glower Chronicles, a steamy New Adult paranormal series.
This story is about Avery Harmen, who when she was a child witnessed her father dying at the hands of a Glower, which, as the synopsis says are "a breed of demon that feeds on dreams of fame and glory". Years later Avery works as a Tether and gets assigned to Colin Ryder, a new up and coming rockstar who's on the brink of losing his major label deal and self-destruction. As Avery does everything in her power to protect Colin she realises there's more behind him than the self-assured and defiant rockstar that everyone else sees and starts falling for him. But then a secret of Colin surfaces which makes Avery doubt that she can keep protecting him from the Glowers.
I loved Avery as well as Colin. Avery because she cared about Colin and not just as a client but really as a person and didn't want him to get hurt. She did literally everything to keep him from the Glowers. Also, she kicked ass at playing the drums, which was just beyond awesome! Colin because at first he seemed this typical cocky rockstar who brings a new girl home with him every week but once you get to know him, there's also a lot of depth within him + he was really talented even if he struggled with it.
The thing that I liked so much about this book was that it was a very unique concept. Sure, I've read other books that were new adult as well as paranormal that also featured rockstars but they weren't quite like this. The writing was really appealing to me, which made the story all the more enjoyable. And of course the romance was so very hot! Avery and Colin definitely had a lot of chemistry going on between them. I loved it.
I only wanted to read a little more about the side characters like Sterling, Fiona and Mateo. But of course this was before I found out Fiona and Mateo will actually get their own books so yay! Looking forward to those very much.
Overall, Caught in the Glow by Eva Chase was in one word: awesome! It had a lot of the things that I love in a good read — new adult, paranormal, rockstars and steamy romance! I can't wait for the next books featuring Fiona and Mateo!
