“I really enjoyed the premise of this story and the romance between the main characters.”
~ Under the Covers
Whenever I see a new paranormal romance series I get excited. Why aren’t authors writing this genre more nowadays? So I had to jump on this one as soon as I had the chance. The blurb and backstory sounded like something right up my alley.
Vampires were created in Medieval times due to a curse between two feuding families. From there, the descendants of one blood line have the ability to kill vampires and the other blood line is set in wiping those vampire “hunters” out of existence whenever they show up through the ages. That’s how we found ourselves in a small town in Pennsylvania in this book. Alessandra’s powers are starting to manifest and both Kenton and Lawrence come to town to follow their centuries-old mission. Kenton to kill Alessandra and Lawrence to keep her safe. Except love gets in the way.
I really enjoyed the premise of this story and the romance between the main characters. I think ultimately what made this story a bit lackluster or engaging for me was that I wanted there to be more going on around them, higher stakes. I think this boils down to expectation because there are many more laid back PNRs and that’s where this fall under. It was a laid back story that is character driven. And maybe I was just in the mood for one more action-packed and story-driven.
All that aside, I did like the characters a lot. Not just the main couple but what we got to see of the supporting cast of characters. I’m definitely interested in the setup for book 2 and will continue reading this series.

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.
