I can deal with the heroine having multiple relationships, that's not a problem, but the 'open' nature of those relationships? Not so much. How can you even call it a relationship/marriage when all the men are sleeping with dozens of random women? Alexander I get, they weren't really together any more, just 'friends with benefits.' So, although what he does is disgusting and ends up breaking Spectra's heart, she kind of brought it on herself by not ending it sooner (4 years earlier when he initially broke up with her). But Mercury and Bay claim to be in love with Spectra, and in the end they both marry her, but both of them are having sex with lots of random other women. Bay to feed his vampire side (he was celibate for 2 centuries, so why he couldn't remain faithful to Spectra is a mystery to me. He could have continued doing what he was doing in order to be faithful to the woman he loves, but doesn't.) And Mercury? There doesn't seem to be a special reason he isn't faithful, he just likes having sex with other women although he claims to love only Spectra. That doesn't really sound like love in my opinion. But both men seem to want Spectra to only be with them, which seems a bit hypocritical. On the other hand, if she's free to sleep around as well, then what is the point of getting married in the first place? Is it a magical thing? Why is Spectra's body wedded to Bay? What does that mean exactly?
Overall, that's why I gave this book 4 stars, mostly from personal preferences and not as a reflection of the quality of writing. I know it's not cheating per se, since Spectra is aware of it--maybe not the full extent of it--but I didn't like it. I prefer the heroine's love interests to be faithful to only her. The situation she is in now seems more like three single people who occasionally have sex with each other and live in the same house--not my idea of a marriage. And I really don't see how Spectra could put up with that arrangement long term. She was hurt when she saw Alexander with other women, what happens when she catches her husbands in the act? Which she will at some point. These people seem to have really long lives, so the odds are she's going to witness them with other women eventually, especially when they aren't that discrete about it. I mean, Mercury had sex with that woman right out in public in the middle of that club. No, I don't think Spectra will like it.
Plus, the author really only made me feel like Alexander truly loves Spectra. When she left him and he cried, I cried, too. That scene was heartbreaking. I really believe he does love her, and he's only with the other women because of his fear Spectra will die if she attempts to shield him. I didn't really feel Mercury or Bay's love at all in comparison. If Alexander will marry her and be faithful to her, despite what he's put her through, I'm kind of Team Alexander at this point.
I was very interested in this story and I finished so quickly because I couldn't put it down. There was such a mystery built around Spectra's power and what she truly was and I have to admit I was dying to know. I was also very much intrigued by Bay. I wanted to know more about his work and where his interest in Spectra would lead. I found the entire supernatural world to be very interesting and I really enjoyed the different characters and learning what kind of supernatural beings they were. Especially Mercury.
While I really enjoyed this book and it kept my interest, I felt that the story as a whole was just ok. The story is mostly about Spectra and the fact that she's a balance and she's in multiple relationships. She's technically dating Mercury, while she's in love with Alexander and ultimately wants to be with even though he broke her heart, and then there's Bay, the man she engages in a sexual relationship with and seems to be growing feelings for. While I'm not one to be turned off by cheating or open relationships, Spectra's inability to choose a man to be with irritated me. I was expecting something a little more from this book, but I still really enjoyed it.
Some species that are mentioned in the book were not described leaving it up in the air, but I hope they are revealed in later books of the series. One down to the book was how easily Spectra gave herself to Bay. Kind of puts females down, in my opinion at least.
