Book Description: Gavriel Ambrosios has been dreaming of his accident prone mate for weeks. Now that he is nearing the apex of his vampiric transition, she has made her way to Lycaonia, just when he is at his most dangerous.
Elizabeth Monroe was planning on staying in Lycaonia while humans forgot about the swan dive she took out of her boss’s office window. Little did she know that this short side trip was about to become permanent. Gavriel is the mate she has always dreamed of. Even as he sweeps her off her feet his need to protect her has him pushing her away. She’s both concerned with and drawn to his darker nature, but is determined to see him through his transition.
In the shadows their enemy has targeted Gavriel when they know he is at his most vulnerable. They creep ever closer to the Alpha estate putting the men on high alert.
But as the days get shorter and the nights get longer Elizabeth begins to wonder, which is the bigger threat? The enemy or her mate?
Captivation: I was intrigued with this book and Gavriel’s mystery. I wanted to know what his story was. The book itself provided much more and a great deal of entertainment on top of it. It kept me hooked straight through.
Sizzle: The intimate scenes in this book aren’t spine-tingling for me, but do have a level of entertainment that makes this book unique.
Romance: The character and relationship building in this book is quite fun! The continued relationship between the first book characters and the new relationship development for Beth and Gavriel in this book fielded a great deal of fun.
Enjoyment: Another fun read with a great deal of humor and a little bit of mystery and suspense. I really enjoyed this book and the characters involved continue to catch and hold attention.
Literacy: The grammatical errors continue to abound in this book with it’s lack of editing and spacing. Not the worst I’ve seen, but certainly not the level it should be if even basic editing tools would have been used.
Overall, I enjoyed this book a great deal, and it added to the series in a wonderful way. It will be on my Read Again shelf along with the full series. I would recommend this book for anyone into the paranormal romance genre. It’s a fun, imaginative series.
