If ever I was in need of a book with a paranormal theme, this was it. Thank you, Mary Hughes.
This is the 9th Book in this series, but let me tell you it did not at all feel like I was reading the 9th book. I completely forgot this was the 9th book.
This is a paranormal with bits and pieces of mystery and suspense in it. I’m glad. I liked the mix. There was a broken vampire, a doctor with a ‘Dr. Frozen’ reputation, and passion. Those are not the only interesting things in this book. There was so much more! There are multiple plots in this story and I loved that. It kept me on my toes and never let me get bored. Yes, it also made me want to know more and more about them and the author delivered all the answers. The climax was ‘epic’ and very momentous. I’m glad I got to read this book.
Luke and Alexis together is a passionate combo. Alexis changes when she meets Luke. No more Dr. Frozen–she’s now ‘Hot Doctor’ and she’s a brilliant doctor who is also known for having a cold demeanor towards others. Luke is a broken, but a very dangerous vampire. Their first meeting made me smile. When she realizes that he is her neighbor, all bets are off. But Alexis isn’t the only one with a chance to change. Luke does, too. It was not easy for him to let go of his carefully buried heart. He did not want to get hurt, but no one can change the future or know what will happen. Ms. Hughes showed me second chances do happen.
For readers who are not just satisfied with a simple paranormal romance, this is the perfect story for you. It has action, sizzling hot romance and vampires. I got tons more than I expected an it was great. Recommended.
