I’ve been wanting to read this series for quite some time now, mainly because I looooooove Erin McCarthy’s writing in her contemporary stuff and this one looks like fun. And it was fun. Just not exactly what I expected, maybe?
So we have Ethan Carrick who is the head of the vampire council and running for re-election. He’s campaign manager recommended that he should get married and settle down in order to give a good image while running for re-election. And he finds the perfect candidate. Brittany Baldizzi is a dentist, she’s sweet, giving, a good person. She is also an Impure, half vampire half human, although she’s not aware of it. She should fit the bill perfectly. Except she doesn’t stir any interest in Ethan.
After he controlled her mind to have her living with him (at his casino hotel at any rate) her sister Alexis comes in guns blazing to rescue her sister. And now that is exactly what Ethan was looking for. A woman with fire and passion that can challenge him. But she is not good for his image. While dealing with all this, they will also have to deal with assassination attempts on Ethan.
So now the storyline was cute, it’s fun and light and humorous. Ethan is pretty sexy although I wouldn’t drop any of my other harem hotties to fit him in. But Alexis got a bit on my nerves at times. Yes, sometimes there CAN be too much snark. The ending was a bit abrupt as well, all of a sudden all these things happened and then they were spending eternity together.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
