Overview

Everlasting Kiss (Everlasting Series #1) by Amanda Ashley

Desire Never Dies


Daisy O'Donnell doesn't get the attraction some women feel for vampires. She likes her men with a heartbeat. And she's just met one who's full of life: Erik Delacourt, the unreasonably sexy man she keeps meeting at a popular L.A. nightclub called the Crypt. She barely knows him, but there's no resisting the connection she feels. . .


There's one important detail Erik hasn't gotten around to telling her yet. He's a powerful vampire out to hunt the Blood Thief who is draining young vampires all over the city--and who has just raised the stakes by destroying one of Erik's friends. To Erik, Daisy is a bright spot of innocence in a world of darkness and menace. He'll do anything--even lie to her--to keep her safe and pure.



If only he knew that Daisy has something of her own to hide. . .

When I first started to read this book I really enjoyed it. I thought the way Daisy and Erik started to get to know each other was interesting. Even though she knew he was a vampire, she still could not resist him. Daisy comes from a long line of vampire hunters and has been taught that they are evil. However, once her family became prominent characters the story slowed down for me. It just was not as enjoyable to read as the beginning. The end of the book did become fast paced and I wanted to know what happened. Overall, I would say that is was an okay book..it was not the best book I ever read, but I was not the worst either. Erik's best friend, Rhys will get his own story in the next book and I am looking forward for that.

They met, they fell in love yes but there was a lack of chemistry. I didn't feel connected with the characters, Erik was easier to understand and made more sense than Daisy's. The plot was good. I think the writing was the problem, it was as if the author just put the story together.

I have several of Amanda Ashley's books and this one was very disappointing. The female character was too stupid to live. I hope this isn't the sign of a trend.

This book had me from the start to the end, My eyes were so glued to this book. The people was so great in this book . Erik an Daisy played there part so well. This book has loving in it fighting in it and laughing. When Erik meets up with Daisy brother Alex now these to are so funny when they are together in the same room what Alex keeps saying to Erik. Then comes Rhys he is Eriks best friend. Your eyes will be glued to this book. The ending to this wow there are 2 things that happen you just would not think would happen I got it, lets see if you do before the books get so fare to the end. I give Amanda Ashley for this book a 10 star. I never read her books tell this one came along. I hope she comes back with the same people in another book. I cant say more then this. LOVE THE COVER OF THIS BOOK. Wonderful book.

This was a great read. I really like Amanda Ashely's books. Erik is a Vampire over 250 years old who falls in love with a mortal named Daisy. Daisy happens to be a vampire hunter who finds vampires during the day and drains their blood and sells it for money. When Erik first meets her, he does not realize this. The way their story comes about is funny, exciting and romantic. Rhy who is the West Coast Vampire and the Leader is also in this story alot, I was happy to read at the end of the book that the next book will continue his story.

In a world in which everyone knows vampires exist with no legal rights and judicial recourse, human hunters kill them as sport. The O'Donnell family have been vampire hunters for generations, but whether the blood has thinned or the next generation does not have the heat to kill, the current brood only has two killers of the undead; the patriarch and his oldest son Alex. The daughter Daisy and the youngest son use a magic compass to find the bloodsuckers' lairs in order to steal the pure blood that they sell for its medical properties. Daisy believes adult vampires are evil until she meets Erik Delacourt at popular Los Angeles vampire nightclub the Crypt. She has taken blood from a vampire she is forced to kill because he came after her. The West Coast master vampire Rhys wants the thief dead, but Erik vows to protect Daisy from even his best friend because he loves her and will die for her. Alex arrives in Los Angeles vowing to keep his siblings safe from the undead whether it be Rhys, Erik or some other vamp. In love with Erik, Daisy must choose between her family and her soulmate. Everlasting Kiss feels like a vampire West Side Story as Amanda Ashley adds to her wonderful take on the vampire mythos as humans and the undead are natural enemies yet the O'Donnell brood and Rhys and Erik will need to find a compromise to save their lives. Fans will appreciate the vulnerable Romeo and Juliet lead couple as the Blood Thief and the vampire learn that love supersedes everything else.

I loved this book! It kept me coming back for more and I just couldnt put it down. I usually read JR Ward books, so this was really a change for me. But I have to say, Im going to start reading more of her books!

First thing, if you're into juicy love scenes then don't even bother, the few (and I mean few) that are here are complete disappointments. The story line is half way decent but the main character quickly gets on my nerves. I had to force my self to finish it and even then i had to skip a few chapters. It just gets boring very quickly.

Like another reviewer said, I liked Erik and Daisy at first but I got irritated as the story went on. Not a bad plot, but the human characters...geez. They are so stupid it is painful. Including Daisy, who began to wear on me. The book is predictable, and - without revealing too much - one of the characters gave in way too easily on a point of life or death. It seemed out of character, like she was just trying to wrap up the story. This is my first book by Amanda Ashley, and I won't hold it against her too much, but I hope her others are better.

Amanda Ashley takes the reader into a different time, when vampires are hunted for their blood by human blood thiefs to sale on the black market, heads & ash by human hunters for contract, and humans are fully aware of vampire exsistance. Daisy finds herself in L.A. away from her family back in Boston. She's a blood thief during the day, she's been trained to take blood from sleeping vampires. One evening while out at a local club she comes across a steamy hunk of a man that she starts to fall for after only seeing him a few times, that is until she realizes he's a vampire and she just broke into his home & attempted to steal his blood. Then the adventure starts. Amanda Ashley takes a different path in this vampire/paranormal romance than previous novels, and I honestly believe it isn't her best work by far. The plot is easy to follow, characters memorable, but it still doesn't cut it compared to her other work, it lacks the charismatic characters she's well known for. I liked it, I just didn't love it. I'm still a fan and will still read her other novels, but this one just left me alittle unsatisfied overall. ~A.S. Johnson
