Overall, I thought it was a good read.  A slow start, but if you hang tight, it will get really interesting and it will be a nonstop action”. ~ Under the Covers

Kate Baxter wrote a Wicked take on this Vampire Romeo and Juliet.  Sasha and Ewan are not only opposites as can be, they are also of different species and to boot.  You see, their kinds are of mortal enemies.  A relationship between a Vampire and a Berserker is unheard of, and most definitely frowned upon because, well, they would kill each other first before having any kind of contact with the other.  Of course, Fate, aka Baxter, has other plans for them, and it’s a whirl of a ride for these two.  

Newly turned vampire Sasha is on a wild streak but her partying days will come to a quick halt after being tethered to a berserker.  Unwillingly and unexpectedly, these mortal enemies actually like each other and I was amused with their helplessness.  It was entertaining to see them try to refuse the brewing romance, but as a reader, you know it’s a losing battle.  Like I said, it was fun watching them try.

I didn’t think I would like Sasha.  From the last installment, I just didn’t like her position in Saeed’s coven. I thought she was a bomb waiting to happen.  At first, her childish outings and thrill-seeking were annoying, but Baxter showed a whole other side of Sasha that left me liking her in the end.  Sasha showed growth and strength that is likable and even lovable to Ewan.  

Ewan, on the other hand, is so easy to like.  First of all, he’s a badass.  He can fight and kick ass like there’s no tomorrow. He’s broody and scary, but as you get to know him, you know he’s just a big teddy bear in a sexy bod.

Overall, I thought it was a good read.  A slow start, but if you hang tight, it will get really interesting and it will be a nonstop action.  When the rest of the clan joins in on all the fun, it gets even better.  I like that there is more progress in what’s happening in this world.  There are alliances forming and foes brewing up trouble.  Now, that’s intriguing.  Not that the romance bit is not good, but I hope Baxter expands on the world a bit more.  I want more of it.

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.

Definitely agree! I loved Ewan, but it took me awhile to get turned around on Sasha. I felt kind of bad that she had that unrequited problem with Saeed.
