The novel description may be enticing but the book itself is more of a snoozer.
The plot is centered around her romance with the world's oldest vampire but it's certainly more sex than romance. Their first meeting takes place prior to the start of the book so you miss out on that moment of first connection, there's no witty banter or flirty dates - you feel cheated. The first time she goes out with him they have two pages of conversation and then have sex - totally unbelievable for how her character is written. And then page after endless page of mundane details - what she had for breakfast, what the traffic was like, what to put on her grocery list. Two straight chapters of her running errands with no dialog or interaction with other characters.
There were hints of what might have been interesting plot lines that were thrown out there but then never developed. I would not recommend this book, I will not be reading the rest of the series.
