First, major trigger warning for physical abuse and attempted rape.
(Possible spoilers ahead)
Second, I wish the book had been drawn out more or made into a two-parter. I feel like she was too accepting of what he was when she found out. There was no period in which she struggled. Same when she was turned. She was just fine. No mourning or difficulty with how her life had ended/changed. Id have also liked the background built up more and would’ve liked to know more of his family.
Third, grammar. Commas where there should’ve been periods - way too many run on sentences. Plus sentences that needed commas and didn’t have them.
Despite that, it was enjoyable. I enjoyed her friendship with Sai and that they were just friends with no underlying feelings. For the most part, I enjoyed her and Micha’s banter. Some scenes made me laugh out loud (like the burrito scene). And their first kiss was hot. I wasn’t a huge fan of the actual s*x scenes but they weren’t the worst I’ve read.
Overall, I think this author has a lot of potential. The book has flaws but it was enjoyable enough for me to finish and I’m a notorious DNFer.
I loved the storyline, the characters, the plot, the ending; I loved it all.
I also really loved the fact that this story was not spread over 5 books. I enjoyed it a lot more that way. Let's get to the point, go through the struggles, and end on the same book. I absolutely hate cliffhangers. So this book really did it for me <3

I was conflicted with my rating for this book. Being conflicted does not mean I did not like the book, because I really enjoyed the premise of the story with the paranormal vampire aspect of it.
Sky has a terrible childhood which still persists into her teens. Her home life with her mother is not the best, leaving her to feel alone with not talking to anyone about it. She met this boy years ago and never saw him again after that particular day. Years later, he is back with an alluring dark presence.
So the moment the story started, it caught my interest. High school vibe, girl who is nice and friendly with everyone but pretends all is ok at home and the mysterious new guy at school.
The conflict, for me, was the back and forth between Skylar and Micah. They disliked each other, and that was good to read. With Micah, there is a particular reason he is pushing Sky’s button to get her upset. However, their constant push and pull was exciting at first but started to wear me down. It felt like I was on repeat. Same attitude, different scene. By chapter thirteen, I got a little excited as you saw Micah in beast mode. I definitely thought after that incident the dynamics of their relationship would change a bit, but they went back to disliking each other.
With that being said, I liked how unique Micah was. His persona and the way he was described to me reminds me of that movie Lost Boys which was also a vampire movie. The powers used on Sky was interesting, and I love that he was able to do certain things to gain insight. He was conflicted in his emotions for Sky with the I want her but I don’t like how she affects me. Sky was sweet. She, too, was also conflicted in her feelings for Micah, I want you, but I don’t want you. I also thought her reaction to what he was went a little too well. Not At that moment of finding out, but after. I like the way Micah was there for Sky eventually when it came to her home life. Again, with things that were ok for me, there were also things that I love about this book.
I thought the sex was ok. When they finally came together emotionally, I really wanted more physically. In those moments, those scenes could be longer.
I liked Sky’s best friend Sai and the turmoil Devin cause when thrown in. I wouldn’t say anyone else stood out, however, this would have been a good series if made into one. More teen hot & sexy vamps with the human girls.
Enjoyed the plot, like the story, but sometimes my enjoyment went up and down. I would still definitely read this author again. As she continues to grow, I can only imagine what will be produced.
TRIGGERS: Sky’s home life with abusive mother.
****I don’t equate these stories to real life. It’s about personal taste and what you would or want to tolerate with the books you read. I know we all have different opinions and preferences with what we read. I based my book reviews on my preferences and what I like, and while these preferences may not be the same for others, I hope this review was still helpful.
I thought this book had real potential and I love enemies to lovers especially with one of the main characters being a vampire. How original! However, the transition from enemies to lovers didn’t quite work for me. Even at 70%, they had barely kissed and it was just a bit slow. Once Skylar learns about the vampirism, I wish Micah could have let her in more or that it would pick up from there but instead it dragged for me.
The writing was really good though, only a few errors and I’m interested in what else this author puts out. I just think this one needed to be tweaked a little bit to fully hit the deliciousness that is enemies to lovers. It fell just a bit short for me.
