Meeting Zane has been a whirlwind. He is extreme, intense, fun and loving all in one!!! While reading this book I have found myself laughing out loud to all the openness of Zane. His character is very different than I had expected. This surprised me since he is a vampire who is carefree, live in the moment, and taking chances kind of guy. Then he is also a very deep emotional and endearing man which what made my heart melt.
Then there is London. I loved London's character. To feel not worthy of herself by the voices of others who have belittled her and her writing. She found her voice through her writing. She writes books that have her deepest desires and fantasies that she can only set free on paper.
When these two come together it's fast, fun and very deep. They both are a balance and I felt it.
Elaine made these two characters strong within themselves through each other.
My heart exploded with some really beautiful and poetic sentences in this book. I know for myself they have imprinted in my heart and my soul.
I found this book to be a great love story of waiting for the the one who has been chosen from the beginning of time FOR A LIFETIME!!
Thank you Elaine Barris for another wonderful read!!''
I enjoyed this vampire read! I was worried at first. The beginning is wham bam insta love, which I don't have an issue with, but I was afraid it wasn't going to help with the narrowness of this story. In the end, I still had an issue with the story which is why it's 3.5/4 stars, but the insta love grew into a wonderful relationship which I loved.
London, or Lindy Beck to her readers, is an erotica author that writes about vampires. Zane is an alpha vampire who fell in love with her after discovering her books. Trying to get near her, he convinces a convention organizer that he is her assistant. London arrives at the convention shocked and flustered about Zane. Zane convinces her to spend more time with him... again and again... until they have their HEA.
The story is set in basically two places: the hotel of the convention and Zane's home. They are briefly in a couple more places but nothing significant. The reason I bring this up is because this is where my issue with the story comes in. A majority of the story is them hanging out and then having sex. It's erotica. I get it. I was just looking for a little more deeper story line. If you are looking for a steamy and sexy book where you will love both the H & h, but don't mind a surface level story, then you'll love this book. (I do not mean that in a bad way.)
Two things that are normally a big deal in vampire stories are feeding and turning a human. Normally these two events cause a lot of discussion between the MCs. In this story, they were almost glossed over. It was a little shocking! If I was going to have a vampire feed from me or turn me, there would be some talking going on first! Maybe the author wanted to be a little different? I'm not sure. However, it was almost like it wasn't a big deal. When Zane turned Landon it was done when she was dying even though he had every intention of doing it beforehand. However, I didn't even realize she was dying until he had already turned her! It was just so quick and rushed! I found this a little weird...
I'm not sure if I'll read more in this series or not. I really did enjoy this book. I just wished there would have been a deeper story. It's definitely surface level material, which is fine if that is what you are looking for.
An amazing, fun, emotional, hot and steamy read!
London aka Lindy Beck, author of vampire erotica, after a disastrous marriage from a man who thinks very little of her talent as an author, decides to go to a signing and from there her whole world changes.. And boy does it change.. Zane ( fanning myself just thinking about him) saunters into her life... Changing everything she knew. London was his, now he has to show her..... no spoilers...
A brilliantly written story that had me in another world.. Loved everything about this book from characters, storyline..
If you like a hot steamy paranormal read then definitely grab Zane.
This one will be added to the re read and favourites list!
But London, or Lindy as her fans know her, has her own messed up life to deal with. Life long repression of her genuine self because of a judgmental and controlling mother, as well as an ill suited stick in the mud of a former husband, have kept London from truly embracing her own needs and wants in life. I don't want give away too much here, but let's just say I laughed out loud in genuine delight when London dealt with the ones held her back for her entire adult life.
I love the paranormal aspects of this story, and the steamy intimacy was top notch. But I must admit, I enjoyed the "humanizing" of the stories characters the most. KUDOS!
