Jennifer’s Review: 

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

The storyline was very intriguing, but the first half of the book was entirely too slow. Although things begin to get very interesting after the midpoint is reached.

Elle Jefferson’s perspective on vampires is quite unique and I enjoyed learning about them and their abilities. These are definitely not your typical vampires!

Lendyn writes screenplays, and is very good at it. But it’s not her job that motivates her, no, it’s the desire to discover her roots. After her grandmother dies she’s left without any family and that’s unacceptable to her. So what does she do? She goes off to find out where she comes from and it leads her on a crazy ride filled with things she’d never imagined.

“I mean I’d survived my worst nightmare, saw hell and fought my way back from it, and none of it felt as awful as watching him walk away from me.” 

Callum doesn’t feel anything. Not pain. Not Love. Nothing. That is until he meets Lendyn. When she’s around he feels so much that he doesn’t know how to process any of it. Which turns sexy Callum into brooding Callum. And damn that man and his resistance!

“Yes, he’d had a mild reaction to seeing Lendyn with Devin but that was a territory thing not a love thing. Right?” 

This book is part love story, party mystery, part suspense, and a whole lot of sexual tension. Once it got going I didn’t want it to stop, and I look forward to reading what happens next in In Death’s Touch.

My Favorite Character: Besides Lendyn and Callum, because of course I loved them, Laurel was my favorite. I enjoyed her ramblings about love. 

“Remember what I said, it chooses us.”
