Love between a young man with a broken mind and the jaded New Vampire Justice officer who cares for him might be the last hope to stop a human-vampire war….
Justin Masters is stuck in a nightmare. Waking after seven years in a catatonic state, he falls desperately in love with the straight NVJ officer who saved him. Between that and dreams of being tortured and taking pleasure in the pain, which bleeds into his waking hours, Justin’s sure he’s starting to crack.
The growing unrest in the vampire world should be Max Kincaid’s focus, but Justin’s struggle, along with Max’s confusing feelings for his ward, have him reeling. When Justin’s attacked, his resulting needs might be more than what Max can provide, but he’ll be damned if anyone else will touch Justin.
As the NVJ investigates humans missing from a high-end bite club, they uncover a deeper plot that traces back to Justin. If those who want him have their way, there will be bloodshed. Justin and Max are in a fight to save Justin not only from those who would use him, but from his own mind.
Dare to love was an amazing book which is book one in the New Vampire Justice series. I really wondered just how Hake was going to be able to make book two, A chance for us, better and if it was even possible to do so. Well I am here to say that it is definitely possible and Jake accomplished that and then some in my opinion. Book one was amazing but book two was out of this world.
This series has definitely sucked me in and makes me anxious with anticipation for the next book to come out. Just in the past year I have gotten into reading vampire, paranormal, and shifter books and this series has definitely made its way up there to one of my favorite top two in this category.
one if the things I love about this series is each book may revolve around two or so characters but it also revolves around the previous characters in book one also. So not only are we learning about the love that two men in each book so far but Jake has made sure to include all the characters of the previous book and has made it a continuation of what happened in the previous book also. In my opinion that makes a series so much more interesting because we learn so much more about all the characters in a series and we get to see so many different sides of them. It is almost like watching a series on TV and with each series we are left with a cliffhanger that makes us want to tune in to the next one to see what is going to happen next.
This book primarily focuses on Max and Justin. In book one my heart broke for Justin because of the fate that he endured. When he awoke from his slumber in book one I hoped that he would be able to get a chance at a normal life after what he went through. With this book Jake delves further into what Justin suffered. The unimaginable things that was done to him and to others broke my heart even more. Justin is so much stronger then I think he even realizes because the things that he endured would have broken a normal person but Justin refuses to let it rule his life and to continue to be a victim. That is such an admirable trait.
I found myself routing for him and hoping that he would get what he truly wanted which was Max. Max made Justin feel safe when he did not think he ever would again. Max started out thinking of Justin as a ward to help but without him realizing it his feelings started to change and he did not know what to do about it, especially since he has always been straight.
The more Max tried to ignore his feelings the more Justin became more to him. The only thing that stands in their way is Justin is still in grave danger and the enemy is not wbout to give him up. Max may not ever get the chance to tell Justin just how he feels if the enemy gets their hands on Justin again. And the longer he waits the more time is starting to run out for more then just Justine and Max. It is running out for everyone involved in trying to solve this crazy case.
Jake left this book with a crazy cliffhanger and I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book to find out what is going to happen next. This is definitely a series that I believe that readers should read because it is one of those series that grabs ahold of you and won’t let go. I know has done that to me.
