Dani is half human/half vampire but doesn’t know it. She has lived with her mother, Tessa, in a small town and never knew her father. She has a boyfriend, Lucas, she’s twenty one, and she’s leaving her college for another larger college, to finish her degree. She’s also leaving Lucas behind-with every intention of staying true to him. She makes new friends and they visit a new club in town, called Thirst, where she is treated like a VIP for what she thinks is no reason. There, she meets Chase, the owner of the establishment’s son, and of course he is a vampire. She also meets his best friend, Kayden, also a vampire. It’s not long before she’s juggling Lucas, Chase, Jared(a guy from her college),and eventually even Kayden. It’s also not long before she realizes that she is half vampire, and that she is coming into her vampire powers.
So much happens in this story, and I found that it really could have been a much shorter book and still been readable. And that’s because too much happens. Every man Dani comes into contact with seems to want her. And she seems to have a hard time turning any of them down, although to be fair, I am not saying she has sex with all of them. Her one true love(as written by the author)is Chase, but everything gets in the way of them being together. The more the story went on, the more annoyed I was with wishy washy Chase. At times, I liked Kayden more than Chase, and Lucas just ended up being pretty pathetic to me.Just when you think there can’t be any more men, the author introduces vampire warrior, Darren. I can’t even begin to say anything about him without spoilers.
There’s also another story line concerning a rogue vampire that is trying and succeeding in stealing vampire’s powers. It involved kidnapping and killing vampire young ones. Since Dani has major powers, of course she becomes his target. This makes for some mystery and action to add to the already crowded story line. And did I mention that Dani is still keeping her half human status secret?
I think the writing could have been tighter, making the pacing much better. I think it would have made for a more cohesive story. There were things that I did enjoy, I liked seeing Tessa and Griffin again, and I liked Dani at times, although she did act like a teenager a lot. But when I really don’t like the main love interest in a paranormal read, well then there goes the read for me.
For me, this started out a solid 4 star read, but as the story went on, and things started getting more convoluted, it went down to 3 stars, but I didn’t go any lower because it actually is very readable. There was just too many men that wanted Dani in the story, and I don’t enjoy that in a paranormal romance. I can handle a love triangle at times, but this was a bit much. About 75% in, I came close to DNF’ing because of how much eye rolling I was doing during a certain part-one that didn’t have anything to do with her love life. Vampire politics and laws in this series are pretty intense and actually made little sense.
I am sure there are people that will enjoy this read, I just read too many paranormal romances for this to be one of the better ones for me. It should be noted that while it is an adult read, it isn’t erotica.
For my review, I won't go into the story synopsis since you can read it in the product page. But I will tell you why I gave it 5 stars. Simply put, I could not put it down. I immediately became invested in each of the characters from the beginning starting with Tessa (Dani's mom). I related to her as a mother. In essence, she fell in love and the guy that she fell in love with is a piece of work. Tessa is human and humans are considered below Vampires in the social food chain. Tessa falls in love with Griffin. Griffin is from an elite vampire family. He is expected to marry one and form a blood bond of his own arranged by his family. But Griffin goes behind his family's back and secretly mates with Tessa who is carrying his child. What happens? Griffin thinks she is dead, turns his back on Tessa, turns his back on his first family, and begins again. I am purposely leaving out important parts of the story because you have to read it for yourself. And when you do - hopefully you'll agree with me that Griffin is a total whining douchebag and that Tessa can do better. I digress, the story is mainly about Dani but I just love Tessa so much I had to get that part into the review.
This story had me feeling extreme emotions and at times feeling raw. Dani, our heroine, goes through so much crap its unbelievable! She gets kicked down so many times I wanted to be her BFF and kick some vampire arse on her behalf. I understood why she made a lot of decisions but at times I wanted to take her out for a girls night and knock some sense into her. The vampires and all its inhabitants are beneath her and they don't deserve her one bit. But I guess Dani is stronger than I am because she is able to forgive. And lets be honest, sometimes forgiveness is difficult to give those that have hurt us in the most intimate of ways.
My emotions went up and down throughout this book. This book had it all for me but most of all the characters are so multi-dimensional. They aren't flat and the book is paced wonderfully. It was quite funny that I was so engrossed that I just didn't want to put it down even to go to the bathroom. I think I might have lost weight because I even forgot to eat when I started reading this book. At first, I thought this book might be to young for me since Dani is in college but the college setting was simply just that - the setting. The world of vampires, its hierarchy, psychics, demi-vamps, love, betrayal, emotions running high, passion...gosh it had it all!
Please give this book a chance and read it. Take a chance on this author. She is an amazing story teller and I can't wait for the next installment.
