[Review] Something Else by Nia Farrell


Grace Murphy is the local psychic medium who dreams of her soulmates—Nico White, a bisexual American Indian musician, and J.T. Santiago, an ex-Navy SEAL and former cage fighter with PTSD on top of the guilt that he’s still carrying from other lifetimes that they’ve shared. J.T. is a Dominant, but he’s never had a male submissive and Grace and Nico are a package deal. It’s a learning curve for all of them, with J.T.’s initiation into MMF and MM relations and Grace’s introduction to BDSM. With Grace’s yin, J.T’s yang, and Nico’s center balance, the three of them come together as far as J.T.’s PTSD will allow. But forging a future will mean healing the past, however painful it might be.

An interracial paranormal MMF ménage BDSM erotic romance, this book is written as a standalone, but the epilogue ends with a teaser for the second book in the series. Contains explicit sexual content, written for mature readers. Ages 18+.



Something else…

This is a short paranormal erotic story; really well written with magical characters, and at its heart an unusual love story which spans a multitude of lifetimes…

Grace is a quirky and gifted seer who has been reincarnated many times… I loved the premise .. with the three main protagonists having lived different lives, with different outcomes, in different bodies before this current lifetime… but whilst there were a lot of positives there were aspects of this book that I found disappointing…

Firstly the blurb indicated that the book was to focus on three women and I had anticipated reading a story that incorporated interactions between them..but in fact the other two were only mentioned in passing and had no relevance to the storyline… I was so looking forward to the interactions between them and that did not happen..

Secondly there are times when the narrative dwells on the mystical and reads a bit like an encyclopaedia of astrological and mythological terms; whilst this provided a window into Grace’s world it seemed very detailed for a novella… which brings me on to the final concern I had which is that this was potentially such a great plot and could easily have taken a full length novel to explore the characters and their imagined world..but instead the focus was very much on the steamy and erotic and not enough on development of story or the individual players…

So here is my dilemma..this was an original and fascinating plot which drew me in..but ultimately left me knowing very little about the characters and feeling that they were all just a little bit too amicable and accepting of their situation… The other ‘Graces’ are yet to have their moment in the spotlight and I shall continue to read with interest, and in the hope of something else, or a little bit more…
