AJ Ashe is moving on. Sure she still has not-so-sisterly feelings for Ryan, her ex-boyfriend-turned-step-brother, but there’s a new vampire in town and his name is Alexander Archer. Caught between the desire to move forward with Sexy Lexy and being drawn to her past with Ryan, AJ thinks life couldn’t get anymore complicated. Yeah, right. When her mother’s pregnancy is threatened, it looks like AJ’s long lost father is the only person who can save her. But Dad’s help comes with a price. AJ is forced join the evil side of her family, and a very creepy shape-shifting demon is there to make sure AJ cooperates. All this and she’s still got to plan the prom. Being a teenager is tough, but being a teenage vampire just flat out sucks. Pun totally intended.
This Book Contains: Violence, Family Struggle, Death, Magic and Romance.
I didn’t like this book as much as the first. I felt that the story was rushed. I think the author wanted to wrap this up and it definitely felt that way. Over all though it was an enjoyable read and it wrapped up nicely.
This picks up five months after the first one. AJ and Ryan are trying to adjust to their new family situation. While trying to protect their family from AJ’s vampire father and their clan. AJ is finds this hard to do because the clan seem to be entering her dreams.
The addition of the two young men that come to help train AJ was a really nice touch. I think that the author could have taken it further than what she did. I really had problems with Ryan and his attitude through out this book. So when everything got settled I was a little disappointed that AJ did tell him off for the way he had been treating her.
The good thing is that everything was tied up nicely by the end of the book. I liked that there was no need to write a third and with all the series out there it is nice to have one wrapped up in two books for a change. Although I think the author could have put a little more into the book so it didn’t feel so rushed.
I would recommend reading this book if you read the first. I do like the series overall and think it is well worth the read.
