Synopsis

 Kaleb “Hawk” Tepes, as president of the Sons of Sangue and descendant of Vlad III, needs to keep his head focused on club business. Trouble is someone wants to divest him of it for a crime he committed against his vampire predecessors. He can’t afford distractions, especially those that come in the form of a five-foot-two sprite named Suzi, who once belonged to his nephew. In a moment of weakness, he makes a snap decision that can only spell trouble. Now faced with the one person who wants him dead, Kaleb must make the ultimate sacrifice or chance losing the only woman he truly desired forever.


Suzi Stevens has tried hard to put her past behind her and move forward. The one man she yearns for over all others, believes her to be nothing but cold-hearted. Hearing that someone has tried to behead him, she shelves past prejudices and rushes to his side, needing to see for herself that he’s all right. What she doesn’t count on is Hawk’s demand to take her as his personal blood donor. Now forced to endure his company, she fears losing her heart for all eternity to the one person who has the power to crush her.

***Kristin #NerdGirlSoldier’s  Review***

In this second book in the Sons of Sangue series, Patricia Rasey brings back her main characters from the first book. If you haven’t read the first one, you need to read it in order to understand where the second picks up. This is Hawk’s (Kaleb) story. He’s now the clubs Pres and isn’t looking to settle down with a mate. He saw what his twin Viper went through with his former mate Rosalee, and while Viper’s second chance at love makes Hawk happy for his twin, it doesn’t shake the thought that women can’t be trusted. One woman has him reconsidering all that he thinks is right and Hawk decides to make her hate him and send her into another vampires arms. What he doesn’t count on are the feelings he has for little Suzie Stevens. He tries to make her his personal donor and when that backfires, he has to face the fact that he cares much more for his woman than he wants to. When her life is in danger, you see Hawk become the man that he has to be in order to not only try to save her, but save his life as well. Will it be enough to stop a primordial vampire hellbent on revenge?

Susie was a donor for the Sons but after she and Hawk have an altercations, she decides it’s best to move on. She’s always loved Hawk but he’s never shown her a minute of interest. Staying away is the best thing she can do…until Hawk decided she’s his donor and none of the Sons can touch her. It’s torture for her. She fights her reaction to him but knows that he can smell how much she craves him. She’s always loved the man Hawk is but it’s much more of a turn on for Suzie to see the vampire in him come out. She loves both sides of him equally and she would do anything to be his mate. You can see in the book that she fights with both herself and with Hawk to prove that she loves him and that she’s worth taking the risk. She’s also willing to walk away when she thinks she isn’t strong enough for him. But will Hawk let her leave? Or does he go after her?

It’s a great book and I enjoyed it. So, why the three stars? Because I feel that past issues where brought up too many times and it got annoying. You know from the first book that Viper had a son, Ion who was killed. Ion and Suzie were very close and Hawk is jealous for all the wrong reasons. He holds on to the incorrect knowledge that she didn’t care when he died and that Suzie is coldhearted. Hawk also latches on to the fact that Ion was planning on asking Suzie to be his mate and that Ion would be the one to spend eternity with her. These things are brought up more times that they should have been. It felt redundant after the first three times I read that Hawk couldn’t decide what to do because Suzie picked Ion first. Despite that, I really think you should pick up a copy and find out what happens because Ms. Rasey leaves it open for another book about another member of the Sons that I would love to read.
