    Haddock has created a pretty enjoyable bunch of characters here Francesca is a nice heroine and her love interest, Saber, fills the requisite sexy Alpha man shoes nicely Likewise, the secondary characters, such as Cesca s best friend Maggie and vampire hater Gorman, are interesting enough The problem is that nothing much in these two novels sticks with you once the book is finished.For what it is though, the novel is decently written The plots are okay and the progression of the story arc is Haddock has created a pretty enjoyable bunch of characters here Francesca is a nice heroine and her love interest, Saber, fills the requisite sexy Alpha man shoes nicely Likewise, the secondary characters, such as Cesca s best friend Maggie and vampire hater Gorman, are interesting enough The problem is that nothing much in these two novels sticks with you once the book is finished.For what it is though, the novel is decently written The plots are okay and the progression of the story arc is fine As far as character development and world building there s not much to itTo continue reading this review, head over to my blog Undercover Book Lover

    This series is a UF PNR mix The character gets her man at the end of book 1 and is still with him in book 2, but the same characters are in trouble yet again rather than being relegated to minor characters The series is about Francesca Marinelli, a vampire who was buried for over 200 years and only recently dug up She s still in the process of discovering her powers, but mostly just wants to live a normal un life in her home in St Augustine, Florida If you like your heroines a bitlik This series is a UF PNR mix The character gets her man at the end of book 1 and is still with him in book 2, but the same characters are in trouble yet again rather than being relegated to minor characters The series is about Francesca Marinelli, a vampire who was buried for over 200 years and only recently dug up She s still in the process of discovering her powers, but mostly just wants to live a normal un life in her home in St Augustine, Florida If you like your heroines a bitlike the girl next door with a little something special then you d love Cesca It s not her fault she keeps getting embroiled in murders and strange vampire plots of domination In that way she reminds me a bit of Sookie Stackhouse or Georgina Kincaid A great character Book 3, Always the Vampire, will be in stores in May 2011 and I ll definitely be in like to pick it up

    I ve had this book trilogy on my nightstand for months I borrowed it from the library and renewed it multiple times There were otherimportant books that kept bumping up in the queue like best sellers and book club selections or audiobooks or ebooks which were handier andportable than these books Additionally, I feel judged reading vampire books where others can see the cover and smirk at me and my hubby complains about the nightstand light so for all these reasons, I kept puttin I ve had this book trilogy on my nightstand for months I borrowed it from the library and renewed it multiple times There were otherimportant books that kept bumping up in the queue like best sellers and book club selections or audiobooks or ebooks which were handier andportable than these books Additionally, I feel judged reading vampire books where others can see the cover and smirk at me and my hubby complains about the nightstand light so for all these reasons, I kept putting it off A little over a week ago, I got the first book read and then I read the second one right after that It just took a few days for both of them This book was as good as the first one I liked following the vampire s adventures again It isn t anything to run out and convince everyone to read but I had a good day reading it

    Haddock has created a pretty enjoyable bunch of characters here Francesca is a nice heroine and her love interest, Saber, fills the requisite sexy Alpha man shoes nicely Likewise, the secondary characters, such as Cesca s best friend Maggie and vampire hater Gorman, are interesting enough The problem is that nothing much in these two novels sticks with you once the book is finished.For what it is though, the novel is decently written The plots are okay and the progression of the story arc is Haddock has created a pretty enjoyable bunch of characters here Francesca is a nice heroine and her love interest, Saber, fills the requisite sexy Alpha man shoes nicely Likewise, the secondary characters, such as Cesca s best friend Maggie and vampire hater Gorman, are interesting enough The problem is that nothing much in these two novels sticks with you once the book is finished.For what it is though, the novel is decently written The plots are okay and the progression of the story arc is fine As far as character development and world building there s not much to itTo continue reading this review, head over to my blog Undercover Book Lover
