A bit toothless
on 10 January 2016
You know you're not going to enjoy a book when the opening scene (pg 1, paragraph 1!) is a graphic description of a blow job, from a nameless female (no character development here - the poor thing is red lipstick on a blow up doll).
This "vampire" story continues in much the same vein (pun intended). The plot is paper thin. Most characters aren't developed, and those that all are bog-standard - the vampires are essentially frat boys and city-boy types. Seriously, what is the point in peopling a novel with non-human types when they all act and think like normal humans? It renders the supernatural elements redundant. I really wish more authors would put some imagination and effort into their character building. What would being hundreds of years old do to your personality? Having to kill others just to survive? Having seen it all a million times before? All these things would leave a mark.... But nope. We just get city-boys and frat-boys, and a tacked-on white collar crime plot.
This book just doesn't work for me as a supernatural romance, nor as a romantic suspense novel. The plot and characters are just too shallow, and the sex scenes too porny and boring.
