A small idyllic town nestled in the Appalachian Mountains is home to a thriving community. People are happy, crime is practically nonexistent, life is good…unless you’re Sabine Crowley, who has been chosen to be the next blood bag for the vampire lord who has protected the town from otherworldly creatures for 200 years.
Sabine has big dreams for her life, and none of them include becoming a vampire’s concubine. On her 18th birthday, she seeks solitude to process the cruel turn her destiny has taken. As she sits alone in Cleary Park, a sexy stranger approaches her. He’s tall, mysterious, handsome, and a complete jerk. He soon reveals himself to be a vampire and she’s terrified of him and her strange attraction to him. She wants to get as far away from him as possible, yet finds herself wondering if she’ll see him again.
Remy, the cocky newcomer vampire, has been summoned by his maker, Bastian, to take his place beside him in the hierarchy of vampires inhabiting Willow Creek. He’s none too thrilled to be stuck in a boring little town in the middle of nowhere where he’ll have to feed exclusively from the girl he’s been paired with. He’s repulsed by the whole situation.
When Sabine tries to run away from her fate, Remy is forced to follow and bring her back. They’re unwillingly thrust into each other’s lives and reluctantly find an undeniable attraction between themselves. Will they ever look past their contempt for one another and act on their urges? Or are they destined to hate each other forever?
So I never thought I would say this but I have a new vampire love. Now I Edward still has a place in my heart but Remy is coming very close to taking a little more away from Edward.
So it starts with meeting Sabine with a smart ass mouth that I totally saw myself in her. She was awesome. I loved how she didn’t give in and gave it right back to whoever pissed her off. She did have a turn of events when she turns 18 that makes her life a little more difficult. This girl is full of dreams of being an artist and traveling the world but Remy puts a damper on that.
Now Remy holy crap, he is HOT and I mean HOT!!!! Oh what is it with those sexy vampires. He is a cocky man though but honestly I fell head over heels with his cockiness. He is very confident in himself in every aspect of his. I mean EVERY aspect.
Remy and Sabine’s love hate relationship was a barrel of laughs to read. She would smart off to him intern to have him come right back at her. I loved it. My favorite is when she called him a pervert constantly. Which in all honesty he was but damn if he didn’t make it sexy.
I loved every aspect of this book. The writing was great and I can’t wait to read, hopefully, a sequel. I would love to see more of the two of them together.
I am giving this book 4.5 hearts. So go now and read it!!!!
