I love paranormal so this was right up my alley. While the author is new to me I will say that enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. I’m not a bit vampire reader but this sounded far to good to pass up.
Mia is in hiding and that her adopted father has worked hard to keep her safe. Now she’s being followed and he’s not answering her calls. That brings us to Aaron Randolph who is avenging his mother’s death at the hand of the vampires.
Mia and Aaron are great characters and I feel like I need to say that he’s a virgin! It was such a big deal because I normally read a lot of alpha hero books and they are never virgins so this was an awesome change.
If you love paranormal like do then this is the book that you want to read. I wasn’t able to put it down. Although, I took off a half star though because this ends in a sort of to be continued in the next book. It’s not a full on cliffhanger but now I need to read the next book. My OCD won’t allow me not to.
