I was sent an ARC of this book for an honest review.
Lenna and Magnus come from two very different backgrounds, or so they thought.
Lenna lives with her best friend Sarah at college. Lenna needs some extra cash to get by, when she starts working in a mansion as a cleaner/hostess.
This is when Lenna meets Magnus, a tall handsome and intriguing man. Lenna is attracted to him and becomes willing to agree to his requests, practically weak at the knees.
The story was fast paced, Magnus at the beginning comes right out with “i’m a vampire” no questions, no secrets, just the truth. The first scene between them is him feeding off her, the sexual tension between them both and the chemistry is instant, but Lenna was warned by her boss at the beginning that being with Magnus comes with risks. The erotic scenes were few, however very heated and not over done. Definitely an adult book.
Lenna was always safe until her grandfather passes away, then all of a sudden a group of vampires called the Vamposi take a lot of interest in her and threaten not only her life but that of her friend Sarah. Magnus feels forced to intervene and protect Lenna.
However there are secrets that even Lenna didn’t know about her grandfather, once he passes she is forced to face the truth head on, but how will Magnus feel when the truth is revealed and they are both forced to discuss their past.
The book travels between the world of Magnus as well as Lenna, giving a great insight into their feelings, past and present. As well as delving into another character “Richard” – his character is revealed in the finale and I didn’t even see it coming.
To find out where the title of the book comes from you have to read the book, all the way to the end, all is revealed.
The ending was very unexpected, new paranormal creatures came into the story, Magnus has secrets that I didn’t even guess throughout the book and overall Lenna becomes a bad ass. very empowering.
Overall I loved this book, I was engrossed. I am very much looking forward to the second book because this story definitely finished with a cliffhanger, and I NEED to know what happens next for these two.
Books like this one are reasons why I love paranormal fantasy books. They send your imagination wild, and I am lost in a whole new world.
