Blurb: She wanted to graduate, get a job, and live a simple life. But all of her plans came tumbling down when a new student, Easton Henderson, arrived.
Easton was deadly handsome and Madison was captivated. Madison Blake was a college student who just wanted to breeze through her last year in college.
Wrapped in mystery and enigma, gorgeous Easton pursued Madison like a madman yearning to have a taste. Madison struggled not to succumb but she was also caught in the desire that engulfed Easton, she drew near like a moth to a fire. It was a losing battle.
Madison’s life changed the moment Easton arrived, entangled in a haze of searing kisses, tight embraces, and bloody encounters. She was in for a ride she never imagined, which included fangs that lusted for her blood and dark eyes that made her drunk with desire.
Review: The blurb is so much better than the actual story. I would rather read the Twilight saga again than this. I’m so glad this was a short book, if it was any longer I would have stopped reading.
As I’ve said with other books, this just felt like a first draft that was submitted with no editing or proofreading. I don’t know if it was the typos or what but there were words in the wrong places. Like unconsciously when it should be subconsciously for example. Then the continuity errors like when she’s doodling to keep busy but now she’s been taking notes to keep busy? Then when she accused of him of following her, which he was but still, then tells him not to get defensive.
Also there were some sentences that just didn’t make sense along with this random guy that shows up and tells her that he’ll be staying at her house for business and she just accepts.
And then there’s the romance. I didn’t get a chance to talk about this in my journal because of everything else I just said since I only have a limited amount of spaces on pages but, I can talk about it here.
There was no romance! Or if there was, I couldn’t see it. She pretty much just lets him back in after he almost kills her but isn’t that what vampire love stories are about? Then the guy who stays at her place says he’s much better for her. They hardly talk at all!
Honestly, this book was a train wreck and I know for a fact I can say that about at least one other book I read over Thanksgiving.
Thank you for reading my review.
