I received a free ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review.

This is the first book I’ve read from this author. And while it was a quick read and a short book, it was a very enjoyable one.

I did have a few issues with this book. One was a general issue I have with vampire books generally. The seeing pale skinned vampires. Pale skinned is so coded as white that it bothers me. I have read books with non white vampires and enjoyed those a bit more than the generic pale skinned vampire books (even though the writing in some of those left A LOT to be desired). So I definitely would like to see a lot more non pale skinned vampires. The other problem I have is a general issue with romance/erotica type books. The whole “you’re so wet for me” thing. I mean yes, sure, some women get wet when turned on. But it’s frustrating seeing that so much in almost every book I read that I want to bash my head in sometimes.

Apart from those two issues though, I *REALLY* enjoyed the book. And would definitely recommend it to others. It also had a few moments that made me laugh which was really great.

      I have always loved vampire books. I am just more critical now of them. I started on Anne Rice’s series and then moved to poppy z brite and then laurell k hamilton and now onto so much better.
