Dylan is a vampire fanatic, and she's out to prove that they exist, even though no one else believes her, and she has no reason to believe that it is so either. With a small inheritance in hand, she goes to a vampire symposium in Romania, or I should say Transylvania-of course. She manages to get briefly involved with a fake vampire cult, and escapes to Paris in order to just vacation. But the damage had been done. She is now on the vampires radar, as a problem that needs to be handled. She leaves Paris behind because she thinks she might have a stalker, and settles down in Florence, Italy, for the rest of her time off. Then things get really interesting.
Dylan is approached by a very handsome man named Nico, that reveals himself as a vampire. I won't ruin it for the readers, but that scene could have easily been the end of the book. The two end up hitting it off, and a romance blossoms. Now that she is aware that vampires exist, she can no longer go back to life as she knows it-as in she won't be allowed to. An extreme case of be careful what you wish for!
In the beginning of this, I was a little put off with the extremely short scenes. All of a sudden you would be hours past what you were just reading, and have no idea that the scene was over, and you need to move on. It must have gotten better though, because once I got pulled into the story, I couldn't put it down, and I no longer paid attention to the abrupt scene changes. To be fair to the author, I was reading an advance reader copy, and maybe the scene breaks just weren't there. When I say that I couldn't put it down-that is literally what I meant.Read more ›
Yes, it is a love story but with a mix of suspense I was not expecting. I just wish the writer would have realized that men read her books and could use a little more truism then just hunky dudes with stamina.
All in all, a good read.
I really enjoyed this book and this will be a series that I continue to follow. The characters aren't over the top, keeping them believable, which is important to me when reading paranormal.
We meet Dylan, who is bored with the direction her life is taking in Florida, and embarks on a vacation to a vampire symposium, only to leave completely disappointed. True, she didn't think she'd actually find a real vampire while there, but the wannabe's she came across actually ticked her off.
She left early and headed to the next leg of her journey in Paris, only to become creeped out by a feeling of being watched, and bails to Italy. Now she's in the middle of some really crazy business, and doing her best to keep her head above water.
You've got to pick this one up guys!! I mean now. Why are you still reading this? GO!
When Dylan’s parents pass away, she gets the chance to indulge in her vampire fantasy that they do exist, by taking a vacation with the money her parents left her, to a vampire symposium where other than Transylvania. The symposium doesn’t turn out like she had hoped, and all she finds there is a cult of humans who claim to be vampires.
Leaving the weirdos to their cult, she then travels to Paris. Nothing special happens here (at least nothing Dylan is aware of until later in the book when she gains an obsessive stalker). After leaving Paris behind, she then travels to Florence. Now this is where all the drama finally begins, because Dylan finally gets to meet a real vampire. Vampire, Nico, had plans to kill Dylan, but everything quickly changes when they share an unplanned kiss and Nico falls for Dylan. Unfortunately for Dylan, this kiss has forced her life into a direction she can never return from.
If I’m being honest, I wasn’t a big fan of this book, so I won’t be purchasing the next book in this series. The excessive details about Paris and Florence made me want to skip several pages to get to something worth reading. I do like details in a book, especially when I can visualize it so much, it makes me feel like I’m there. Sadly, it felt more like a girl writing in her diary, reliving her trip to Italy, and it was boring. I also didn’t care for the constant details about her needing to eat. Yes, characters need to eat too, but it felt like a filler to get the reader to the main part of the story.Read more ›
