The heroine of this PNR, Donna Perry, is a smart, feisty, independent woman who's snarky humor had me laughing out loud throughout the entire story.
"I'm not exactly frightened of you, Conner. I just think maybe you have issues only a great deal of therapy and several types of antipsychotics can fix."
And Conner Savage (swoon) ... well, Conner is a beautiful, sexy, 340-year-old (give or take a year or two) Scottish vampire--an immortal Highlander, and, yes, at one point he dons a kilt. He's the perfect mix of sweet and dominant, and believes he has found his soul mate in Donna.
"You are more valuable to me than my own desires. If I have to keep you here against your will and watch you walk away when it's over, I will. Whatever it takes, Donna, I will do it. My heart belongs to you and anything that would harm you will harm me."
Other than a few typos along the way, my only complaint was that the ending was a tad rushed--thus the 4 stars. Nonetheless, a standalone with its own HEA, Bite Me was a very enjoyable read, and I have no doubt we'll hear more about Donna and Conner in the next book in the series, Once Bitten, Twice Shy.
The bulk of the story is spent in setting up the characters and relationship of Donna and Connor, her vampire boyfriend and in setting the stage for the main conflict (vampire politics) that will be explored in subsequent novels in the series. Not much time is spent in world building which I found to be the greatest weakness of the story. The story is set in Dallas but not much is done to create the setting, mood or secondary characters that make for a rich reading experience. That is, in my opinion, one of the things Ms. Harris does so well.
Bottom line: this was light, quick reading that taps in to many of the typical vampire/human romance tropes. The flow is pretty good and the writing is fair. I didn’t find it objectionable but neither did I find it compelling.
Donna is a fiery, tough, no nonsense allowing, loyal, smart, beautiful, stubborn and dedicated women you’ll ever see. She knows what she wants, and at first it's not the brooding Connor Savage with his enticing Scottish brogue! She just wants to get through her shifts as a waitress and spend time with her girls. But that all changes one night….
Connor is a vampire. One that has lived amongst mortals for an incredibly long time. He’s a man of many convictions, sexy, smart, loyal, dedicated, beautiful men you only dream about. He’s waited for years to find someone who not only sparks his libido but one that is intrigues him more than anyone he has encountered. There is something about her that draws him close, with the need to figure her out and then some.
Their chance meeting as Connor saves her from a vicious attack sends them both into a spiral of chaotic proportions. When she finally comes to terms with what he really is, she’s fallen deep. He knows that he’ll do whatever it takes to make her his forever. They’re love affair is steamy, dangerous, insanely heartfelt and a bit wicked.
They will battle against others (some unknown) as they come together. Did I mention Donna has capabilities that no mere mortal should possess? Or how about the fact that Connor has a few secrets of his own? All of this adds into this action packed, erotic, romantic and intense paranormal read. It's a book that will start your thirst (ha see what I did there?) to learn more about these two and their friends along the way.
I absolutely LOVED this story. This is my second jump into a vampire romance and I'm totally kicking myself for not reading this sooner. C.C. Wood did an amazing job of keeping the theme light but still maintaining an air of caution/danger that revolves around the vampire world. It was the PERFECT combination. And I am super stoked to dig in to the next book in this series...so until the next one, I'm off to read Alex and Ivie's story next.
