I really liked this edition to the Unholy Alliance series! Genevieve and Chad were both excellent! I love how Genevieve uses her intelligence to help fight against the creatures, and I thought Chad was a sweetheart; while still maintaining his strength. I liked Chad and Genevieve as a couple; I think they both have attributes that help the other be a better person. I like the world this series is set in; having many types of supernaturals together helps keep it interesting, and the action sequences are fun and exciting.. Beloved Enemy was a very quick read, and it kept me interested till the end! I have read the 2 previous books in the series, and I loved both of them, so I will definitely continue to read anymore books in this series! I hope there will be a book where all the characters get together for a big finale!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Beloved Enemy was a pretty decent read! Neither it nor Shadow Allegiance (I haven't read Rival yet) were as good as the first book, but I feel like this one was one more step towards being as good as Unholy Alliance.
I sensed a connection between Chad and Genevieve right away--they were the kind of opposites (vampire and human) that just fit well together. I've been craving a romantic book, and the romance was good enough to make me happy. The only problem, though, was that it progressed a bit too quickly. There could've been a lot more development in their relationship.
In Shadow Allegiance, I didn't see much story--it was mostly focused on the featured couple. In this case, there was a little bit more to the story. Genevieve's experiments were a big focus, and I liked seeing more about the world of vampires and warlocks that are part of this series.
Chad was a funny hero with a lot of insecurities. He had a bum knee, and even though it didn't hinder him that much, he still thought it slowed him down to the point where he couldn't protect people. He didn't see himself as a good guy for Genevieve for awhile, but he saw some character growth as he grew closer to her.
Genevieve was a really good character. I liked her in Shadow Allegiance and wanted more of her story, and I'm happy I got it! She had a lot of insecurities as well, but was a lot stronger than she thought she was. She also grew as a character as she and Chad grew closer together, and I really liked seeing how beneficial they were to each other.
Beloved Enemy was a decent, quick read that I was in the mood for. It wasn't a "wow" novella, but I really liked the romance and the character growth. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series!

I received a copy of this book from Netgallery in exchange for an honest review.
This is book four in the Unholy Alliance series by Lacy Yager. If you haven't read the previous books I suggest you do. Although technically this can be read as a standalone it makes more sense with the background information of the previous three books.
What does a seventeen year old science prodigy have to do with vampires? Apparently a lot. Genevieve Quinn was kidnapped from her college campus by a vampire to help them with a vital project. Scared and not understanding why she was really being held hostage Genevieve is determined to escape. After several unsuccessful attempts she meets Chad and starts to rethink her opinions on vampires and her willingness to stay and help.
Chad Matthews is a vampire who is always up for a battle. Kind of. He didn't want anything to do with Genevieve but is confused about his almost instant and constant need to protect her. When her life is threatened all bets are off.
I had a hard time liking Genevieve. She was so timid most of the time that I found myself practically yelling at my kindle for her to stand up for herself. The few moments of spark were very welcome. Chad on the other hand was closed off and didn't want to let anyone get close to him. I was happy to see that by the end he worked thru his issues. All in all it was an engaging novella. I'm hoping the next book in the series comes out soon.

OUTSTANDING book! A must read! I had been anxiously awaiting this next book in the series and it didn't let me down! When I read the first book in this series, I couldn't stop until it was finished. I had the same experience with this book! I loved both the hero and heroine in this book and they had great chemistry. I cannot wait until the next book in the series comes out. I've read numerous series about vampires and this one has a great twist to it. I don't want to give away the story, but it is both interesting and exciting how humans (chasers), vampires, warlocks, and witches are working together and against each other. This is definitely a must read book and series!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
