REVIEW: Gargoyle Addiction (Otherworlds Summons #1) by Livia Olteano

Summonari don’t trust. Under their command, they summon any number of creatures from the Otherwolds—but never trust them outside of the summoning.
Gargoyles don’t love. Fierce descendants of dragons, they function on power and fear—never love.

Karla isn’t the happily-ever-after type of girl. No territory-hungry guy is going to stick flags all over her unclaimed grounds.
Kann’s world is death and betrayal. As Dar Primus of Haus Varis, he’s expected to follow tradition but he’s not your regular gargoyle. In fact, he’s anything but. 

One fateful Friday night, Otherworlds collide. Stuck together in one world or another, Karla and Kann face everything from Awakenings and turbulent love to Festnavals and bloodthirsty scorned suitors.
If there’s one thing they can’t escape, it’s the addiction to each other. And they’ve got it bad.

My thoughts:
I really hate not being able to give a book more than two stars, but unfortunately I just can't go any higher than that with this book. When I first saw it I was absolutely in love with the cover and so intrigued by the books description, so I grabbed myself a copy to read. And then I saw that there was going to be a blog tour, so I jumped on board. It got put on the back burner for a little while but I was itching to read it. And it started off good. I was drawn into the story and the storyline of Karla's favourite book character coming to life was interesting and original. 

But I just couldn't like Karla and Kann. Kann was domineering and bullying and Karla seemed to hate him for the most part. She called him names and got cranky at him and then out of nowhere they would just start having sex. Lots of hot sex. I was beginning to think I was reading some mild erotica instead of a paranormal romance. And then after the sex, they would go back to hating on each other.

There were parts of the story that were really well written and I could see so much potential with it, but I ended up skimming about the last thirty percent because I just couldn't connect with the characters and for me that's really the death of a book.

2/5 Stars.
