“[Baxter is able to] create an action-packed story that does eventually amp up the romance. ”
~ Under the Covers

In the second installment to the Last True Vampire series, Kate Baxter introduces readers to Naya Morales, a woman with special powers tasked with tracking down others with stolen magic. When she is lured by a magic so different and powerful, she comes face to face with a man that somehow knows her name. He claims that he is going to protect her before passing out. Freaked out, Naya straps him to a chair, intending to question him once he wakes. But the stranger becomes all too impossible to resist.

I didn’t fully warm up to Naya’s character. She acts like a tough cookie and I will admit, sometimes she is. But other times she acts without really thinking about it first. As with the reader, she is kept in the dark and when Ronan wakes, not able to remember anything that happened apart from that he is Naya’s mate and must protect her, Naya reacts like a child. Instead of having both characters sit down and try to communicate, they simply argue, creating a greater divide between them. Naturally, I could understand why Naya was a little bit freaked out, but the entire situation doesn’t really make for a very romantic interlude. It was hard to believe in the romance when Ronan is practically throwing himself on Naya and she’s batting him off like he’s a disgusting bug.

I will say that I enjoyed Ronan’s character. He’s a charmer but boy does he seem clingy. As the book goes on, however, Baxter is able to rein them both in and create an action-packed story that does eventually amp up the romance. I’m looking forward to see what Baxter has in store for her readers next!
