"great novel in IR canon, esp newbies;w/issues:uneven female view @critical times;overly concerned w/racial differences poisons her relationship;uneven perspective lauding female attributes v. air time for male's;male thinks unusual, stereotypically degrading thought about a white female, timing & content nonsense. Climactic ending fueled by no-longer-blind faith, forgiveness, and love."
"WMBW vampire romance with some new curves on an old theme. At times book dips into erotica, and developmental relationship details too much for a horror story. But for vamp stories enthusiasts, that's the alluring nature of the lovebeast. Interracial vampire romance novels in which there's diversity to reflect the population are overdue."
"More romance with erotica elements than thriller. NC hero cop does have dog & truck. Some hard to swallow bits...the protagonist moves in with hero who takes her on shopping spree; protagonist, who's dark complexioned, 'turns pale' with fright. jarring. pace for a thriller not so believable. less focus on bringing psychopath to life. IR story: 5 of 4. thriller, 3."
