☆☆☆☆/5

This was, for lack of a better word, interesting. It was almost like Twilight but way more intense. A few similar bits but that’s it. The way they are about each other is way more intense and possessive. Makes what Bella and Edward had look like puppy love.

There were some cute moments but there wasn’t really anything that made me smile, at least not that I can remember.

The ending was what knocked me a small loop, I didn’t really expect that to happen. I thought that if anything were to happen that she would still be human.

It took a while for the vampire thing to come out, a lot longer than usual, I think all the way to chapter ten but it wasn’t boring like some stories can be. There was a lot that led up to it though, hell it didn’t even feel like a vampire novel until it came out and then a bunch of other stuff happened that made me forget that it even felt like a normal novel.

It was well written and pretty engaging. There were a lot of POV changes between the two main characters so it got a little confusing at times.

There’s quite a bit of sex, so I wouldn’t really recommend this to young readers. It’s quite a read so, get ready for the long haul if you pick it up.

Thank you for reading my review.
