paragraph divider 18***Amber, #NerdGirlAmbz’s Review***

Let me start off by saying BRAVO! The author’s attention to the tiniest detail was overwhelmingly accurate and it put me right in the story alongside the characters. I truly felt I was in the book myself. The writing style of this author is very unique and dead on.

The story centers mainly around two characters – Dylan who finds herself left at the altar. As embarrassing, humiliating and hurtful as that was, she is determined to pick herself back up and move on. Even if she has to leave the country to do so! That alone screams women empowerment. She shows true strength.

 She then attends a symposium on vampires. A topic that has always peeked her curiosity. She ends up

meeting a guy who she thought had the same interests as her and quickly finds out that that is not the case.

 Without giving away any spoilers or the rest of the book… I will say this. Very early into the book you will be taken in by this incredible storyline. The events that transpire will take you on an incredible journey filled with culture, drama, excitement and OF COURSE VAMPIRES!

Can’t wait to read the next installment! Such a fantastic read!
