Tall, dark, mysterious - and with a faint scar on his cheek that only makes him more gorgeous - Kaiden Thorne is one schoolgirl obsession Skylynn never forgot. Now, returning to her childhood home after eight years, she can’t believe her reclusive neighbor is still living across the street - and hotter than ever. Skylynn doesn’t know how Kaiden manages to stay so young, virile, and impossibly attractive. But she knows she wants him…even if he harbors a fearful secret he refuses to tell her. When Kaiden sees the beautiful young woman Skylynn has become, he can no longer control the bloodlust that is his true nature. Once he pulls Skylynn into his arms, presses his lips against hers - and accidentally draws blood -he longs for more. Only she possesses what he wants and what he needs. Only she can save him or destroy him. But once Skylynn agrees to help Kaiden battle his darkest desires, there is no turning back…

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Kaiden Thorne was a drop dead gorgeous sexy Vampire (always a plus) whose deep longing for Skylynn, the mortal girl across the street, is about to get a whole lot worse when she returns from an unhappy marriage to clear out her deceased Grandfather's house. Skylynn has always day dreamed and fantasised about her sexy but mysterious neighbour Kaiden and when he turns up on her doorstep things will change forever for her too.
A tender contemporary sweet Vampire love story about death, betrayal, revenge and love with a few twists thrown in. There's a Hunter that stops at nothing to get his revenge, a traumatised Brother whose lost his memory, an Elixir that has almost magical powers and a few other ancillary characters. There's a bit of action but nothing really pulse pounding and weak, nearly non existent, sex scenes.
I liked this light listen but found it could easily have been a YA rather than the darker, sexier and altogether deeper stories that I love sooo much. I related to Kaiden (well hello who wouldn't) but I found it very difficult to connect with Skylynn and there were a few 'questionable' actions in the plot that I felt were just stupid. It had a 'Twilight' feel and Skylynn even referred to herself as Bella at one point.
Worth a credit? If you're in the mood for, or like, a fairly easy going Vampire romance then look no further you'll enjoy it but for me it wasn't very memorable so I've got to say I'm doubtful about the credit and, if I hadn't already downloaded another book of hers As Twilight Falls I think I'd have passed on it .... but here's hoping.
