QUICK NOTE!! SPOILER ALERT. Actually… not a spoiler for this book, but for the series in general. YOU MUST read the other two books before reading this review, so as not to spoil all of the crazy excitement that you’ll go through with those. This is one of those absolute must read trilogies that you must read from the start, spoiler free! Believe me. You will love it!! If you haven’t read the first book, stop right now and go get it!! Fifty Shades is a masterpiece!! Check out my first review if you’re new to the series, and go from there 😉
GO! GO! GO! NOWWWWWWW!!!! IT’S UP!!!!!!! OMG!! I’m hyperventilating!!!! No sleep for me tonight!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And in the meantime….
You know I had to put this up, and I know SO MANY of us are reading this as we speak. I set this up as our sounding board. This is our temporary “Fifty” support group. If you feel the need (as I know I will), you can come here to cry together and cheer together, until we reach the end.
One of my favorite series of the year (and pretty much one of my favorites of all time). This one took so many of us by storm and put us all in a reading frenzy. A seriously tortured soul finding his way from the dark to the light, and a gentle soul struggling to meet him in the middle. Check out my book review of book #1 to get an idea of what it’s about – this is not your typical contemporary romance. Sure… it’s romance, but with a twist. A HARD twist 😉 :
My friend Jackie said it best, and I just had to quote her:
How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire (Love at Stake, Book 1)
Now this is more like it! I started with Book #2 (which was good, but not great). Book number one (this one), however, was hard for me to put down. I laughed a ton, and found the romance was quite intense. Roman Draganesti is the perfect vampire! Handsome, intelligent, rich, spiritual (as a human, he was a Monk) and completely in touch with his emotions.
I admit, like most books of the genre, some may find them easily predictable. They frequently follow a typical story format (and even have similar characters), but it is the depth of emotional connection between the characters, and the humorous dialogue that sets each of them apart. This one, in my opinion had that depth.
