“In the end though, for me, it fell a bit flat.” ~Under the Covers

I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with this series.  Love because I really enjoy some of the light humor that this series usually offers.  Hate because now that we are at book 19, sometimes I feel like I’ve read that before.

I had high hopes for ONE LUCKY VAMPIRE, mainly because I have enjoyed the past few books in this series.  But while reading this I couldn’t help but feel that although it’s a completely different couple, with their own issues and set of problems and chemistry… I just felt that it was all cut from the same cloth.  I really hate when I feel like a series is repetitive and I really want something to shake things up a bit in this world.  Maybe Marguerite shouldn’t be the matchmaker in every book.  Maybe the whole mate and nanos thing needs a fresh spin on how it’s told.  I don’t know what I’m looking for really, just something other than “Margarite knows these two people are mates and she sets things up so they are in close proximity and they are bound to fall for their mate chemistry”.

This is a sweet read and the hero is verra sexy, so after I put my own mental hang-ups aside of what I want, I thought it was enjoyable.  Not as funny as some others in the series, but still a light read.  In the end though, for me, it fell a bit flat.  With so many ups and downs I’ve had with this series, I have to question myself whether I want to continue reading them.
