With a new species of vampire stalking the streets, the stakes are high. But that’s not the only reason hearts are on the line.

Danny Reynolds thought Kieran McCade was the one—true love and hot lust forever—until Danny found out Kier’s bloody secret and ran away screaming. Months later, Danny is facing his own paranormal crisis, and he needs Kieran’s help, but are there enough ways to apologize for breaking a vampire’s heart?

Nothing about Danny’s transformation is normal—not the attack that led to it, and not the symptoms Danny’s plagued with—but being in close proximity to Kieran is even worse than becoming a thing that goes bump in the night. Danny and Kieran aren’t the only things threatening to bump each other off, though. Secret organizations and clashing vigilante agendas want to get their hands on Danny. His only hope is to find a fix for his problem before he’s either captured or his abnormal transition starves him to death.

Danny and Kieran might have a real chance to repair their broken romance… but only if they keep Danny alive!

I had such a great time reading this book. There were some very exciting moments and, even thought I would like some more romance, I really enjoyed reading it.

I loved the plot. I wasn’t expecting the conflicts that they had to deal with, which was great. I loved the fast pace that it took sometimes. It had my attention very quickly and it was very hard to put it down. What intrigued me the most about the book was Purity and everyone who was involved. It was interesting to see the discrimination subject it addressed.

One of things that I liked a lot was that we get to see the point of view of the villains and understand their action. I don’t think it create sympathy for them, but I’d always love to see what’s inside the mind of a villain. Even though I loved that part, I think it was also a little damaging for the plot because I think it would work better for the reader to guess their motives and also because it center a lot of time on them, leaving very little for the development of Danny and Kieran’s romance, which feels a little underwhelming or at least for me it was. The characters were great but there were times when I was more interested on knowing Rogan’s story than I was in the central plot.

Overall it was a very enjoyable paranormal book, with a lot of action, some romance and a great group of characters that left me wanting more of them. I truly hope the author is thinking on making more books on this world because I would love so much to know more about Rogan, Aiden and all of the others too.

I love to read M/M books. I’m still doing a lot of catching up with some series and getting to know some authors. I love to read stories with dark themes, a lot of angst and complex characters. I’ve always been interested on how mental illness is portray in books, so I would probably read any book with that subject. Here are some of my favorite books
