    OK, I got this book for free one day from Amazon. The summary peaked my interest, so I downloaded it. I have some mixed feelings. For one in my head all I could compare it to was Twilight. Which is not fair since this is its own book and its fairly well written. A pet peeve is I caught quite a few grammatical and spelling errors and I am not a Grammar Nazi by any means but these stood out and that was annoying. Onto the story, I must say Ms. Rosavin did a great job of creating characters that I OK, I got this book for free one day from Amazon. The summary peaked my interest, so I downloaded it.

A pet peeve is I caught quite a few grammatical and spelling errors and I am not a Grammar Nazi by any means but these stood out and that was annoying. Onto the story, I must say Ms. Rosavin did a great job of creating characters that I managed to develop an attachment to in one book. From start to finish this book only took me about 4 days to complete. It was easy to follow and flowed fairly well. It was a bit, um, descriptive at parts which was a little difficult to read at work but once you began you didn't want to put it down until the "part" was finished. This in turn made you want to read on. (view spoiler)[ So in this over told story of sexy vampire loves a human there were a few things that stood out. One is Kat is not a mere mortal. She is a witch, albeit her powers are unknown to her for a while but she is born of an ancient magical bloodline. The love interest and sexy vampire Adrian is insanely old, in years not in looks, and wants to control Kat and her dormant powers. Of course this is going to lead them to fall in love, its forbidden, her family (who know about the undead) would never approve and he doesn't know what "love" is...its like Romeo and Juliet meets Dracula. Honestly the book was not bad. Both main characters were strong willed and determined to out will the other, which made for some hilarity and some really hot intimate scenes between the two. It also was beaten to death before the halfway mark so by the end of the book I wasn't feeling proud of Kat for being a strong woman. I wanted to slap her and tell her to grow up. Every time she acted like a brat it made me dislike the book a little bit, dropping lower and lower down to two stars. It was way over done. On the other hand I felt Adrian's deceit was well balanced. It wasn't overdone, even if it was annoying, there was a purpose to it. This also goes for Olga, Dimitri and Stefan their deceit was balanced...everyone lies, good lord! The biggest reason for my Twilight comparison was the vamp baby. This book is how a vamp baby should happen. Thank the gods that the baby didn't have to eat its way out, that was just disturbing in Breaking Dawn. This baby was normal-ish. Born like a baby...didn't kill mama. It was half human/witch and half immortal undead. It totally brought some of the happy back and made me like the book more, back up to three stars. Of course when they killed off Kat I freaked. I was like noooo not another one where the freaking main character dies. I can't handle this, I was just beginning love her so incredibly much. But they rectified it and it wasn't creepy, it was sweet. Plus the evil, lying overbearing vampy has a soft spot and happily ever after ensues. Well it seems to. Is this a first in a series. I can't tell because the ending gave closure but the story has some areas where it could continue. I guess we shall see. (hide spoiler)] So overall a decent book. I am glad I read it. Its like twilight with sex but a little better. If you like vampire and witch stuff check it out. Some of it takes the legends to the extreme but its tolerable. Kudos to Gina for developing characters in one novel that had me near tears at some parts. I felt connected to them and that made this a good read.

    It took me a little while to get into this one. I finally warmed up to it several chapters in and really started enjoying it. The author did a good job developing the characters and the plot. The hero, Adrian, is a vampire determined to control everything & everyone around him with the ultimate goal of controlling the world. Of course, he then meets Katerina "Kat" and she turns his world up-side-down. I am often an unrealistic optimist and love villainous characters that wind up being good, so I It took me a little while to get into this one.

I am often an unrealistic optimist and love villainous characters that wind up being good, so I enjoyed his character & experiencing the changes he went through. Kat, on the other hand, wasn’t my favorite heroin. I started out really liking her. She was strong and stood up for what she believed in, but about half way through the book that strength and determination felt more like bull-headed, brattiness. Overall, it wasn’t a story that kept me glued to the pages, but it was a good read. FYI - Dialog editing needed!

    I couldn't wait to finish this book - it was so bad, but for some reason I wanted to know how it ended. It was just page after page after page of Kat not trusting Adrian, and yet she was compelled to be with him. And I only know this because I read the words written on the page - I didn't feel it. I didn't feel the characters were connected, and I couldn't get "into" this book. The story was disjointed, and I felt like key plot tools were sprung on me rather than woven in to the story.

    This paranormal romance had some interesting characters and action scenes; however, Kat's continuing distrust of Adrian throughout the book got to be rather boring. Instead of growing into an interesting character, she stayed weak, seemingly manipulated by her parents, various vampires and witches, Adrian, and even her own powers right to the very last page. I would have liked more plot and less angst.

    Didn't enjoy this book, but once I started it, I wanted to know what cliche ending they came up with (I wasn't disappointed). It's just another romance novel, but this time it's with vampires! Kinda like the adult Twilight. The beginning was ok, the middle was bad, and the ending was awful. The characters and romance weren't believable and the romance was bad. The plot was needlessly confusing at times and extremely repetitive. Didn't enjoy this book, but once I started it, I wanted to know what cliche ending they came up with (I wasn't disappointed).

    This book explores what happens when people who care about each other decide to keep secrets. It also shows the unfortunate side of single-mindedness and the destruction it can lead to. The story was decent, Kat could be quite frustrating because she couldn't see past her own goals or put things into context. Overall, good story, it could be repetitive in theme (keeping secrets).
