I thought this was a cute read, but parts of it annoyed me. The heroine was like one of those women in horror movies that we yell at because she does the most stupid things. She takes pills from a man she just met, then angrily accuses him “you drugged me.” I don’t know if it counts as him secretly drugging you when he hands you pills and you voluntarily swallow them. She’s on a date with another man and asks him to take her home. Instead, he takes her to his house. He gets aggressive and makes her bleed and kisses her against her will, and she still stays with him. The bad guy calls her and says we have your sister and when she asks to hear her voice they claim she’s unconscious. Then she’s surprised when they don’t really have her.
It was like one stupid thing after another. I felt like I was constantly rolling my eyes and groaning in frustration at the woman. The hero was definitely better, but I was left wondering how they’d make a relationship work. She’s human and will remain that way and he’s immortal. I don’t like when paranormal books end like that. Is he going to watch her grow old and die? It doesn’t feel like a happily ever after to me.
Overall, there were parts of this story I really enjoyed. When I started, I thought I was going to like it much better than I did. It fell a little flat for me.
At my second attempt to listen to an audiobook I was very pleased to discover this one. The story is good and sometimes funny but it was the narrator that really sold it. Animated but not exaggerated I'm excited to listen to book two of this series.
