    This book surprised me in a good way! I'm not one for vampire

    This book surprised me in a good way!

    I'm not one for vampire romances - or much in that vein of paranormal at all - but I put my preconceived notions aside.

    When I started the book on a Thursday night, I figured I'd read some, put it down, and pick it up over the weekend. But, once I started, I couldn't put it down. The story itself is darkly humorous - Cerise is not a likeable character (at first). She's got some major hangups that immediately had me questioning what her issue was - every sub she gained was lost due to insanely ridiculous, picky reasons (or hilarious ones - taco/salsa breath would be a deal-breaker for most anyone!). She had a pseudo-friend who was just as unlikeable...but something drew me in. I wanted to know why this woman was this way. I admit, my first thought was, <i>If this chick is this angry at the world for no reason, I'm going to be really upset that I wasted my time. </i>


    Oh, am I glad I kept reading.

    Cerise's reason was BEYOND what I expected. Her event was so traumatic, so life-altering that I lost my breath. Actually couldn't breathe for a moment as I read the scene, which was written so beautifully that I could see and feel what she experienced.

    From that second on, I wasn't letting go. I read the entire book in one sitting (I was tired the next day at work, but so worth it) and began to really root for her to realize William was the perfect guy for her.

    William was a different kind of character, too - he wasn't an in-your-face vampire. I had a hard time thinking of him as a vampire until it was fully presented to Cerise (I enjoyed the way in which William's past was given to the reader - not drip-fed, and not all-at-once, but captivating in its entirety).

    The only vampire-y part came at the end of the book, and by that point I was comfortable enough with the two characters that it didn't bother me in the way I thought it would (being, you know, not a fan of vampire stuff).

    I would recommend this story to folks looking for a good read. Be warned, though: It is dark, it is humorous, and it has some moments where you'll want to slap/kick/hug/cry with the characters. All in all, worthwhile for a bit of your time.

    And - if you're like me in that vampires aren't your thing - I still recommend you check it out. The story can stand even if you change William from a vampire to an (even wealthier) human, which is not something I can say about other novels in this genre. And for all us language freaks out there, the writing (grammar, sentence structure, plot arc, etc) is flawless and a true joy to read.

    (Disclaimer: I was provided an ARC from the publisher for an honest and unbiased review.)

    So wow. That's the first thing that comes to mind when I think about this book and the story that went along with it. When you take an erotica book, with how many of them are out on the market these days, there needs to be a twist in them to make them stand out. That is what happens in this book on many different levels.


    The first thing that I completely enjoyed about this book was that even though it was a BDSM book, there is a DOMME in it! It's not just a male Dom who has a female sub, in this book the roles are completely reversed. Which was great for me because it gets tiresome reading the same type of books over and over. Another thing that I enjoyed was that this book shows there is more to the whips and chains in a D/s relationship.


    Right from the start I could tell that there was something up with Cerise's character. She seemed to be settling and left wanting for more. Something that she couldn't seem to find even though she was constantly looking for it. One of the things that upset me with her character was how we had to wait so long to find out what had happened to her that caused her to become the way that she was.


    William's character was very down to earth, you could tell what he wanted and how he was afraid he would never find it. Throughout the book we learn a little bit more about him, his past and what made him who he was today. I completely enjoyed the fact that even though he is a vampire, that doesn't take over the story. We spend time getting to know him for him, not just because he drinks blood.


    All in all, I did enjoy reading this book and I would completely recommend this book to friends who enjoy reading this genre.

    Wonderful book!!!

    I have never read a book with a female Domme before. I really enjoyed this! Very hot scenes! But I never enjoy erotic stories without a good story-and this had plenty of love too. This well-crafted book has convinced me to add a new author to my must-read list. I highly recommed this one!!!

     the book had me at vampire. Then when I found out that Cerise was a Domme looking for a submissive vampre I was hooked. But best of all and the best part was the humor in this book. It had me laughing out loud as I read it. It was my kind of read with a laughing twist. Very enjoyable to read.
