Sunrise at Sunset by Jaz Primo It was nice to come across yet another author who writes in my favorite genre, the paranormal, and uses my favorite character, the vampire. I was very intrigued with this book and it was easy to get into. I did find it a bit frustrating on two counts though. One, although as the reader the book does hint to a sexual relationship between Caleb and Katrina, but never goes into detail about the passion they share. The only clue they ever made love was that they held each other and cuddled afterward. I do not understand why the author did not enhance or go into depth about their sexual relationship, but it was a little disappointing especially when in almost every vampire book I have read, always shows the passion the vampire emits with his or her partner. So, I did find this disappointing. The other thing I found to be a little irritating was the fact throughout the entire book, I kept looking at Caleb like a small child. Katrina treated him throughout the whole book as 'the boss', 'the protector', 'the dictator' and more like a mother to him than a life mate. I know in the beginning when she first met Caleb he was a small boy who helped save her life, but even after she met him again as an adult, she continued to treat him as that small boy. That would have been a little more tolerable IF their love making would have gone into detail. And Caleb always allowed Katrina to treat him as such, except in certain areas of the book where he 'tried' to stand up for himself. To be honest, I wanted him to be turned so he could be a man, stand on his own feet and maybe Katrina would treat him like a man instead of a helpless child. Now, with that all said. I loved the book. It had a great story behind it, and it was written well. The author shows a great deal of imagination and creativity and it kept my attention. I was pleased to see when I finished reading the book there is another one coming after it called A Bloody London Sunset. So, I hope the author will allow me to read and review it. Although Sunrise at Sunset disappointed me in two areas, I can't wait to find out where Jaz is going to take Caleb and Katrina next. Hopefully the author will open up a bit and allow the intimate part of their relationship to come forth and have Caleb grow a 'set'. *grin* I give Sunrise at Sunset four stars **** Reviewed by Nora Chipley Barteau

The man is way too wimpy for my taste. I tried to keep an open mind about the strong, independent female lead, but it was a tough pill to swallow. The woman vampire came across as parental and the relationship was almost like incest. It gave me the creeps. I quit reading around page 300. I had no more interest in seeing that poor man imasculated further.
Perhaps the dominant female and the submissive male relationship will float your boat more so than mine. In that case, it is a 900+ page urban fantasy book. The grammar and spelling are decent. I agree with other reviewers-- too many "smirks"!!! I suggest a lot of skimming and reading the dialogue only. Too many words spent on inner thoughts and not enough action.

    Long winded

    Long winded and too much inner dialogue. I understand this story revolves around an alpha female, but he was too subservient imo. There were a couple holes in the plot that i guess will be plugged in subsequent books - however - i feel absolutely no desire to read more about the sly smirks. Blah. Not a book with graphic sex, but the apparent relationship would be her as dominant and him submissive. Just really not to my taste...

    Sunrise at Sunset

    This book unfolds way to slow, I mean common! Katrina treats him likea child. She may be, like over one hundred and he's tweny something. But she treats Caleb like he's soONTYme dilusional eight year old. Thus book has a good idea for writing about but, it was just so slow. If your still interested the book is 971 pages. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME, REALLY.

    Pretty bad

    The narration is dry and stilted. Character development is non existant. In the 900 pages there are maybe 3 decent scenes. The author needs to learn to shoe, not tell.

    Mmmm...Yessssss!!!!!!!!

    Everything about this book will draw you in and keep your attention. I often found myself staying up later than i should so that i could "finish the good part." Truthly, the entire book was a good part-hence the late nights.

    Okay book

    Good storyline but waaaay toooo long. Just kept going i had to skip through several pages n not get lost. The main couple was cute but the guy was just not manly enough i know every woman wants an understanding guy but come on it was too much. One question? Is starts of him being taller than her but he is always looking up into her eyes or directly to her shoulder n her looking down on him?

    Easy read

    I gave this 3 stars because it was a good story however I thought some stuff could of been cut out, alot of describing things going on. The next book is 14.99 and I won't pay for that, but for free it was okay.

    Keep reading!

    The people who gave poor reviews stopped reading too soon. The characters developed a great trust in each other and an understanding of what real relationships are built upon. The book is 900 pages for a reason. Don't stop reading and then complain about a major growing part of the book. Read it to find out how the story unfolds. Good read!
