The several cons: the heroine, the instant "love" between the two leads, and the treatment of women. The heroine is a doctor, very independent . . . until she falls in lust, oops, I meant love, with a vampire she just met. You know, the one who lied to her, bit her without her consent, mesmerized her repeatedly and put her life in jeopardy. Because, really, that is what strong, intelligent women do! Just not believable, and yes, I know that we are talking about a vampire story, but I really wish the author would have gone down another path in this area. All in all, though, an entertaining read.
"He'd pulled his dark hair into a short ponytail except for one wavy strand that had pulled loose and blew against his cheek. The streetlight cast enough illumination for her to see the dark lashes fringing blue eyes that reminded her not so much of summer skies or robin's eggs but the richness of an arctic sea flowing over darker depths. They appeared to lighten as he studied her with an intensity that almost robbed her lungs of air. he had a strong jaw, full lips, and a slight cleft in his chin. If he was a serial killer, he was at least a pretty one."
After such steamy descriptions and serious tones typically Krys' internal dialog kicks in to something humorous and light.
"He cleared his throught. "Are you Dr. Harris?"
"Krys caught her breath. Good Lord, what was wrong with her? She'd been practically drooling through a half-open window as though he were Adonis personified. he could be Charles Manson's separated-at-birth, unidentical twin."
The chemistry felt natural and not too in your face and overly mushy. It flowed with the story and the situation and came together nicely in the end.Read more ›
Maybe it's the timing, but this book really didn't work for me. I am typically not a big insta-love fan, which is a major part of this book. I had to pick it up and put it down more than once, eventually planning to give up altogether until I found an opportunity to finish it while doing a mindless task.
The writing isn't the worst, but the overall impression came across as more formulaic than I was hoping because the synopsis seemed pretty interesting. It has occasional action and a truly deplorable villain whose inevitable demise is certainly easy to root for, but I believe the overall execution and world building could have been better. The ideas weren't fleshed out well enough in favor of more mundane and uninteresting details.
It's a kindle Prime freebie, so it doesn't break the bank, but I don't feel the need to continue with this one.
