The book overall is well-written, but there were times when I think it lagged. In addition, it took me a while to actually connect with Shige, while I connected with Phil immediately. Eventually though, I did find what I was looking for and although he isn't my favorite, character, I do like him. I think there are always those characters in a lot of books though. They keep things interesting at times. I did enjoy the story and do recommend reading it. 4 stars and suggest you one click this today!
I actually spent a lot of this book feeling sorry for Phil. He was just an introvert who preferred to spent his time quietly at home with his dog, Hugo, when he wasn’t working. And he worked a lot paradoxically because he didn’t want to come home to a lonely bed. And of course, when he is forced to take vacation (two months worth!) he immediately runs into trouble. He “…just danced with the wrong guy.” I’ll say.
I wish the blurb or even other reviews had been a little forthcoming about Shige’s secret, because the “dangerous secret” was one that actually may have stopped me from reading this because it’s a vampire saga and that’s not really my genre. It really is a vampire story, and not the cute, sparkly vamps. There are lock you away in a cell vamps. And the vamp fight that starts up is not pretty. Phil ends up in the middle of it, the poor guy, over someone (Shige) that honestly I didn’t think was worth it. I loved Phil, didn’t really like Shige, vamp or not. OH and Hugo the Hero, I adored him.
We have an issue with a vamp, Pampa, who wants to stick to the old ways, where humans were disposable and that was that. Shige, having put Phil in this position, now needs to try to keep him safe. Shige made me angry on Phil’s behalf more than once. Just poor Phil.
The ending is no HEA or even HFN, but more of a maybe-beginning. A tender love story this isn’t but vamp fans will love it, I believe.
With this book, it is about how Phil meets Shige (a vampire) randomly at a night club. They hit it off, but unbeknown to Phil, his meeting of Shige has put him into grave danger by another vampire, who is out to hurt Shige (Through Phil).
Shige and his group of vampire’s force Phil to move to their base for his own safety. Slowly Phil is witnessed to strange goings on. But Vampires are not real. Even when one of Shige crew tries to explain, Phil does not believe them and think they are mad want to be vampires.
It is not until Shige takes Phil to Nasu, a club where vampires meet, and he witnesses a vampire feeding from a human, that it all comes together.
I like the banter between the two main characters. It is also refreshing that the human does not automatically accept everything that happens and even tries to escape. The story world came across authentic. And the pace of the book was well balanced. There is no outlandish weapons, or over use of magical powers. This is a real down to earth Vampire novel.
Phill meets Shige when he goes for a night out on the town for the first time in a while. These two have some really hot chemistry from the very first spoken words. When weird things happen, Shige brings Phil to stay at his place for a while.
Phil wonders oh Shige can do certain things, and why he won’t let him return home. Soon things become worse when Phil is kidnapped by one of Shige’s enemies while trying to run away from Shige.
Nasu has a lot going on and is very interesting to read, I just personally think the secret should have been revealed sooner, or the story should have been a bit longer.
