Blurb: Josiah Reign is an up-and-coming mixed martial arts fighter who’s never said no to a fight in his life. Tonight is no different. Out for a simple jog, he happens upon a young woman who needs help. So Josiah does what he does best. He takes on her attackers…all five of them, in fact. Little does Josiah know that this one act of goodwill will introduce him to a very strange world, a world of dreams…and nightmares. For this woman, Lena, is not who she seems, and her friends are the stuff of legends. Worst yet, Josiah finds himself falling for not one, but two of these deadly creatures of the night. And as Josiah suffers a devesating loss that rocks his world, he will fight for what he believes in. And fighting is what Josiah does best.
Review: I’ve actually read this before, in 2012 and I still liked it, though I think I may have liked it more three years ago.
This is actually one of the first vampire books that I remember reading with the guy left in the dark and it was quite interesting to see it from his point of view.
The title is a lie though, there’s not a love story in here, he just cares about these two girls and there’s no indication of which girl he’s actually going to fall for. The actual love story is more like background noise so the author might have done a better job of a different name.
A couple of things I didn’t like, the writing could have been better, it was a little choppy and I felt like some sentences repeated themselves right after one another.
It was a little funny though, mainly in the beginning. The way that they turn people is also something I didn’t really like, you would think that they would be really careful with that since it’s so simple.
I also didn’t really feel a connection with any of the characters, except between Josiah and Tommy and that’s because they actually acted like best friends.
Thank you for reading my review.
