Publisher’s Blurb: Vampire Nick Christos might have been born in the Middle Ages, but those days seem tame compared to the last eight years spent ruling the Supernatural Council. The only respite in his long days of governing is with his sweet neighbor Casey Meyers. Sure, he’s forced to take a cold shower after every encounter, but no way will he risk anything more with a human. Not with his blood thirsty ex on the prowl and out to ruin Nick’s life.
But when said crazy ex shows up at the ball and flies her freak flag high, Nick has more to worry about than keeping his hands off his neighbor. He’ll have to stay closer than ever if he hopes to keep her alive, but will she want to leave him forever when she learns the truth?
My Review: I loved, loved, loved this book! It was a fun, quick read which I had a lot of trouble putting down.
It was filled with interesting and entertaining characters which were incredibly hard not to fall in love with (and a few in hate with), and it left me totally wanting more.
With characters like the totally hot (although a little dumb in the girlfriend department, at times) Nick – who I may love just as much as Eric Northman — his equally hot and charismatic buddy Linc, the sweet, yet strong Casey, her ex-Uncle, now Aunt Teddie, and the evil witch Alvinia, I was absolutely hooked.
As I finished I thought, Candace Havens should soooooo make this a series! I would totally read more books about Nick and Casey and this supernatural world she’s created!
Another aspect of this novel I enjoyed was the romantic part. Not only were there a few hot and sexy scenes, which I always love, the love story itself, was very engaging and very believable. Ms. Havens established that Casey and Nick were already very good friends right from the very beginning and I feel it made their falling in love completely plausible, authentic, and unrushed.
Finally, I found the book incredibly funny. The things the characters say to one another and the thoughts that went through both Casey and Nick’s minds were hilarious. Also, Ms. Havens added several references to current pop-culture, supernatural movies and TV shows – True Blood, Twilight, and Lost Girl, to name a few – and they often added to the overall hilarity of the thoughts and conversations which ensued.
Without a doubt, I would recommend this book. It was absolutely wonderful and that’s why I gave it five out of five stars.
