Just thinking about the story makes my heart flutter, and I know what I'm going to do when I finish this review. Read it again. I'm looking forward to October and the new release!
Upping the stakes once again, Angelina's parents are in town for a short visit and to see the sights. How can you show your parents New York when you can't leave the house? And what could possibly be a good enough reason to not visit with them over Christmas?
Thrown into a panic, Angelina needs to rely on Morgan's quick wit and money to salvage her relationship with her parents, yet provide enough of a reason for her to remain within the house and safe from the unwanted effects of compulsion.
Her panic and reluctance to lie to her parents, combined with Morgan's ability to give them the experience of their lives was a nice slice of life and displayed real reactions and questions that are expected when you are trying to protect your parents from the fact that vampires exist.
While we see Angelina's concern for her parent's and their relationship, Morgan never ceases to amaze: suave, debonair and gracious even as he and Angelique are sniping at one another. Again he also steps in to save Angelina's life, this a direct threat from his maker. There is a connection that is ever growing between he and Angelina, and there are answers coming... eventually.
This is a great installment in the series, and makes for a quick afternoon's read. Sadly we now have to wait for the next book ....
I received an eARC from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
The author gives us more of a glimpse into vampire billionaire Morgan Ward and also moves up the romance a notch or two (it barely qualifies as a romance up until now) and there is some actual interaction between the stoic Morgan and our naïve Angelina.
We also get to meet the "maker" of Morgan and his sister Delilah and it is not really pleasant to be honest but it does move the story up yet another notch while still inserting a bit of heartbreak into the equation (or perhaps it is just frustration).
All things said I have to give this 4.5 Stars since it had even more of an addicting quality about it than the previous installments mainly because it did not have to lay any farther groundwork and was pretty much devoted to the story.
One thing that should be made clear is that you really do not want to start with this book, get all of the releases and read them in order, slow moving romance of the highest order.
This book is written in the first person. I guess you could read this as a stand-alone but I suggest you don't. It's a better read if you start at the beginning of the series. This particular book is set around the holidays but it can be read at any time.
In this part of the series Angelina's parents are coming for a visit, which puts a twist on the other two books. This story shows that Morgan Ward has more humanity than we had been lead to believe in the past. It's also less about the sexual tension and more about the family aspect of our characters.
Kallysten will still give you the sex and romance because she's so good at that. She sucks you in so that you can do no less than fall in love with her characters and hope that all will turn out all right in the end. She's also good in leaving you hanging until the next book comes out. I got to the end and was left saying "What?" - and I'm sure you'll say the same.
One disappointment I had is that eventually this series will come to an end. I've found that I look forward to when the next book arrives. Her next book titled The Coward's Way Out is scheduled for October. But on the flip side, I'll also look forward to whatever she writes. In the meantime, I have to wait another four months until this series continues.
