Robyn is a young girl disappointed by recent events of her life. She meets Brandon & we can see the attraction between them from the first moment. She goes for a walk with him and then everything is changing..First of all , I'd like to say that this book has a lot of potential. It has an interesting plot & there were parts that I really enjoyed. It was fun, I loved the sarcasm at some points, it had suspense and it kept my interest. I did notice a few loopholes sadly and they made me confused. [ Such as Robyn's age, the whole thing with the reflection at the mirror. Sometimes she could see herself and others she had no reflection. Also, she got turned by a bite on her neck. But when they fed from others? What was the difference that made the turning? Why did the police cover them? ] Overall, it was a good read.

2 no-no stars for me.
Let me first say that i really enjoy paranormal romance so i was really excited to read this book. A girl named Robyn, whose life is falling apart meets a super-hot guy, Brendan, who has a really dark secret. It sounded right up my alley and i expected great things from the premise.
The book just didn't do it for me. I didn't connect with the characters at all and there was no build up between Brendan and Robyn.
My biggest issue with the book though was how WHAT THE FUCK AM I READINGeverything was. Throughout this book i was constantly thinking what else does this girl has to go through.
Splitting parents? check!
Cheating boyfriend? check!
A vampire kidnapping her? double check!
And ohmyfuckinggod while she was kidnapped and chained the only think that was on her mind you would think was escape, well yeah for a normal person, but no she was just thinking how she wanted to have sex with the guy who kidnapped her. Right.
Lastly this insta loving-romance stuff. It was good with Twilight but now it's just boring. I would have liked it so much more if we could actually see they're relatioship develop.
Don't get me wrong. I believe this story has a LOT of potential. It was really different than most vampire books which was good but had a lot of errors for me to enjoy. I hope the author would wrap the story better in the second one.
This is my honest opinion and it shouldn't put you off from reading. I really hope you will like this more than i did if you decide to pick this up.
