Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

This starts off with a boring Samhain Party, but a very exciting ‘after party’. Cassy and David are drawn to each other immediately and after their paths cross again they don’t fight fate long. Their pull toward each other is so strong it makes for an interesting read.

Cassy is a princess who has never been alone a night in her life. After her best friend and bodyguard, Erica, is murdered her life takes ninety degree turn into left field. She’s very quick to adapt and to use what skills she does have to survive.

After their initial meeting David has an issue with trusting Cassy, but he quickly learns that he can’t stay mad long. There is a force beyond his control that’s drawing him to her and he has no urge to fight it.

I like how the vampires aren’t always strong, how the bonding works, and I thoroughly enjoyed the magical element that makes up all supers. They are aspects I haven’t read before and it was nice seeing a different spin on all supernatural creatures.

My Favorite Quote: “We had sex in the parking deck against your car. I lost control and bit you.” I loved how she just matter-of-factly told him what had previously transpired between them.

My Favorite Laughable Moment: When Cassy leans back in the window from the roof. David’s reaction was hilarious!

Overall, I give this 4 stars!
