Unfortunately, this book did not live up to it's potential. Kendall and Kane have good chemistry, and it was a nice change for the woman to be the vampire with the advantage over the man. However, that did not make up for the plot not appearing until 2/3 of the way into the book. And, once they realized who the enemy was, instead of going after her, the reader is treated to 20 + pages of Kendall whining about how she can't lose Kane (really). The kick-butt vampire hunter is suddenly weeping every other page and her man has to comfort her.
It is romance, I expect sex. But, it just interfered with an already weak plot instead of enriching it. When they know their fellow hunter is in mortal danger, do they rush to his aid? No, they have sex. Several times. And, of course the man dominates the sex scenes. I like a bit more equality between sex partners. This book wasn't a bad read--if you have nothing better on your shelf. I highly recommend reading Sherrilyn Kenyon, or Angela Knight before picking this up.
