Transforming Love (Koning Clan, #1) - Debra  Smith ***Copy received for an honest review by author.***

Transforming Love is basically, in house building terms, a frame without a foundation. The basic Paranormal Romance steps are here, but it feels like nothing is expanded on. After the last page turned—even while reading—the characters were instantly forgotten.

The sex scenes, definitely have potential. The romance wasn't fleshed out enough that the full affect of—what is clearly a great romantic concept—the courtship left me empty. The female lead (see still can't come up with names) was solid and I admired that she wanted to do things her way. The male leads acceptance and eventual sacrifice was amazing and I felt so bummed that I couldn't truly enjoy it.

The story feels like a rough draft. There needs to be more effort put in. It feels like I was reading a standard fanfic, an ode to the paranormal romance genre. There's clearly a lot of love for the work here. To be a true story there needs to be sheetrock, paint, wiring, and a lot of other things to make it a home to paranormal romance readers. Right now those wooden beams are mighty shaky.

Sexual Content: Standard PNR lov’in.

1/5- I couldn't finish it or wish I hadn't
