NEW REVIEW - Geomancist (Seven Forbidden Arts Book 5) by Charmaine Pauls

All is fair in love and war, especially when the enemy is a drug baron and the loot the woman you love. 

Sean Rivers lives with a dangerous secret. He possesses a forbidden art. As geomancist, it is in his power to destroy landscapes with earthquakes and volcanoes. Knowing his kind is hunted by forces of both good and evil, Sean’s job as mixologist in Cartagena, Colombia is the perfect cover. Until Asia, a zesty beautician walks into his life and wrecks the very laws of physics. 

When Sean and Asia compete for the premises where Sean intends to open his cocktail bar, he pulls out all the stops to win the challenge ... to Asia’s detriment. Together they end up catering for the guests of a drug baron who rented Isla del Pirata for a week-long birthday celebration. The kingpin has no intention of letting Asia leave. Ever. If Sean is to rescue her, he’ll have to use his art, blow his cover, and maybe even his life. 

This book contains adult content with explicit language and consummated love scenes. Suited for an adult audience.

"He didn't want anyone else to want to touch her, because he wanted to own those rights exclusively."

I haven't read any paranormal or romanctic suspense in a long time while it was two of my favorite genres a couple of years ago. Geomancist opened my eyes for the world I was missing. This book had the right amount of suspense, romance and a bit of paranormal thrown in to it.

This book is focusing on Asia and Sean who both want to own a pub and change it into a business of their choice. However both don't have the funds so they accept a job offer from a drug lord to work a week on a private Island where he will celebrate his birthday for a week. From the start they are attracted to each other but they also are competitors. I loved that Asia was a strong independent woman who was also pretty loyal and protective of her family. Sean was a bit of a loner after what happened in his past. Sean was bossy but Asia didn't let him tell her what to do. 

The sex scenes were really hot. Charmaine turned up the heat pretty high! There was a lot of chemistry between Asia and Sean and I loved how protective he was of her. There was so much suspense in this book and it wasn't predictable. I also liked that the story wasn't over powered by a lot of paranormal events. In my opinion it had the right amount of paranormal in it. I loved the characters and I also got to meet the MCs of the previous books which I'll definite read.
