This well written quartet focuses on Josephine, a young woman struggling to become a chef. She trips over the existence of vampires, and it becomes a race to stay alive. And the vampire is all kind of dreamy, dark and enigmatic. And as these two circle each other, their worlds around them collide.
One of the best vampire stories I've read.
A lot of unexpected turns were revealed in the last book.
In my opinion as a reader, the author should NOT have had a HEA ending. This type of Romantic Suspense deserves for one of the two MCs to die. Afterall, their relationship, warnings, and the world lore set it up for this. I understand how the lore could be interpreted for the ending as it was written.
While this book did not need a proofreader-- the beta readers should have pushed for the ending chapters to be extended by a third for pacing. Too much, too quick. Despite this flaw, the book still stayed in my mind and that is the sign of a good plot/concept. I normally never write reviews on books with adult content, but the focus of this story wasn't that, and the book was so different, I decided to chime in here.
If the author hasn't written suspense yet--they should!
Kept, Book 1 - Although set in Boston, I enjoyed this story by one of my favorite AU authors. The storylines are set up with the day to day life of an American woman and the current journal entries of a 500-year-old British vampire. Toss in a few vampire hunters, best friends and law officers to make a good cast of characters.
The fact that she wants to be a French chef has a few recipes of the base sauces highlighted. Of course, this quickly read, novella length story ends not quite as a cliffhanger but sets up the second book.
Kept, Book 2 - This part is dark and deadly but not graphically gory. There is a massive cliffhanger but getting there is suspense filled and intriguing. It is too easy to slip into book report mode with all the events happening and the emotions running amok.
Ms. Allan does it again bringing a story to life so realistically and mesmerizing that you cannot stop reading. Then too soon, it is the last page and you want more! I contacted the author to review her books and picked up this up through Booksprout. 5*
Kept, Book 3 - Resist reading one of Ms. Allan's books is as futile as resisting a vampire's hold. The only complaint I have is this comes in parts instead complete.
It is hard to find an author that grabs your attention and imagination the way this wonderfully talented Aussie writer does with each book she writes. Well thought out storylines, variety of characters and unexpected surprises galore are part of ever stories. Plus, she has a good sense of humor.
I didn't put this book down until the last page and yes, it's another cliffhanger. There is a lot of emotion and the range includes many. Ms Allan has this genre mastered. I have read all but two or three of her books and I have seen a talented storyteller grow in her skills and her stories just get more powerful, more mesmerizing and always difficult to put down until the last page. 5*
