Review: This is the first book written by Melody Lane that I have read. The story itself was pretty amazing although the way it was told was a bit disappointing. It comes off like it is written by a newbie. It comes off a little rushed and could have used some slang. It doesn’t take away from the story itself, but continues to stick in my mind. However it has great potential, but it just comes off a bit strange. I truly enjoyed it. The characters were beautifully written with big hearts and great attitude.
Ryan is a vampire and although it does say a bit about how and when, you really don’t get a clear answer on how he became one. All I do know is he hates it so much, that he is basically a test subject. He gets infusions and follows the rules so that one day he will become human once more.
While out to see a speaker, death showed up. Vampires were the target, but lucky for Ryan he had gotten out of the auditorium before it happened. He was a doctor and pretty much had it all under hand, but did appreciate the help of a gorgeous man. To his shock his old class mate was the man who helped him. A man that he had wanted even in high school.
Eric is a shape-shifter who can turn into about any type of domestic dog. He was also a gorgeous bounty hunter. His main focus at the moment was to catch a man and woman wanted by the courts. Many of the leads to the bombing and shootings have led to a group that wanted revenge against vampires.
It turns out that his jumpers were more than they thought. He was also reunited with Ryan. He had wanted Ryan in high school and now he has the chance to make it work.
Like I said these two guys are great but they come off as a bit strange or off. It has a bit of danger to it, a touch of suspense and some hot sex. The story line and plot are pretty damn good.
However it feels rushed and there is just something missing from the whole story that keeps coming to my attention. The problem with that is I just can’t figure it out. It did not take away from the story though. I had a blast reading it and look forward to reading book two.
