Turns out, the police are recruiting humans to snitch on vampires through the dating site. As the snark and sparks fly, feelings between Silver and Logan grow deep. Logan isn't sure he can go through with his mission to make Silver forget everything she knows about vampires...and betray her.
But in the tight-knit London community of centuries-old vampires, history and grudges run deep and dating the undead can be risky business.
This is one of those tough books to review. Books that I loved? Easy to rate and review. Books that I hated? Oddly enough, those are even easier to rate and review. But books that were just OK? Those are tough to talk about because they didn’t leave a strong impression on me one way or the other. This was one of those “meh” reads that I could’ve gone on living happily without. It wasn’t the worst I’ve ever read, but it was also far, far from the best.
With that in mind, I guess I’ll start with the positives:
But there were plenty of negatives that irked the bejesus out of me, too:
“So, what do you want?” I ask, tucking my bag under my arm and gazing at him with narrowed eyes.
"Get back here, vampire. I felt you up; now you feel me up. That's how it works in the twenty-first century. This isn't Jane Austen. I'm not bloody Elizabeth Bennet."
So, for me, this one was “meh” with a side of “blah”. But if you’re a big fan of the genre, it’s not the worst thing you’ll ever read. (How’s that for a glowing recommendation?)
Full disclosure: I received an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
Contributes. Silver’s attitude toward vampires is totally unrealistic, as is the super-quick nature of her romance with Logan.
