One of the other reviews gets up in arms about the way the characters acted after getting bit, however, I think the response was reasonable for the characters. They teetered on the edge of admitting the possibility of the supernatural and trying to come up with less insane explanations. I actually liked that a whole lot more than getting one taste of something not quite right and jumping into the supernatural boat. I mean, even a fan of the genre, if I came across “vampire” bites in real life, I would definitely go to mental health patient suspect over real vampire first. That’s just logical and even more so for a police officer who deals with craziness on a regular basis. So, f@ that one star review. This book didn’t deserve that kind of treatment.
Alright, so, maybe you want to read this book. I’m going to read the next one. I’ll let you know how it goes. 😏 Hopefully our heroes aren’t quite as TSTL as they were in this one. And hopefully Franklin makes another appearance.
I don't want to give anything away but both plot lines are handled very well in my opinion. The MC struggles to accept that vampires are real just as most of us would in real life. He also has very conflicting feelings about his new trainee who is not only attractive but charming as well. The obvious power imbalance in their relationship is a major concern for him, as it should be.
No mpreg, no sparkly vampires and 2 gay men who are both strong characters without being interchangeable with a man and woman dynamic. Pretty well written and edited as well.
If I had any complaints it would be about the British police terminology. I did have to Google a couple of times. And as I've said the beginning is a little slow but once things got going it's hard to put down.
I went ahead and bought it after reading on Kindle Unlimited and am now moving on to book 2.
One review said they were done after the “bite” and I got to say I found that a bit harsh. I enjoyed that Jesse took the more realistic approach of doubting what was outside the norm. When the book began this was not a world where supernatural forces might stalk, and the cast reacts accordingly. When faced with something that redefines a character’s world view, doubt and a bit of self delusion are to be expected. That being said, the author does not pointlessly draw it out once Jesse reaches his conclusion and while trying to adjust to his redefined world view, he has a muderer to catch, a plot to unravel, and possibly a relashionship he’d not seen coming.
This book is more plot driven than romance driven, but even though Jesse can be a bit of a grumpy cat, theres definitely the potential for more and plenty of adorable moments.
