It was immediate for Roman. In 3,000 years, he'd never lost control of his emotions, or his heart. But the moment he laid eyes on Evelynne Farrow, he knew she was the woman who haunted his dreams. And everything changed. Everything. Evie Farrow has always loved a good vampire romance. In fact, she makes a living writing them. While sitting in a coffee shop and working on her next mega-hot book, Evie is approached by a tall, dark, and handsome man who could have been pulled directly from one of her novels.
Unbeknownst to her, Roman D'Angelo is exactly what he appears to be - a vampire, and not just any vampire, but the king of vampires. Unfortunately, while Roman is both ancient and invulnerable, Evie is flesh and blood. Just as Roman decides that he and Evie have a date with destiny, for reasons of their own, an ancient god and a homicidal vampire take an equally strong interest in her. Can Roman fight off the incredible forces that would have Evie as their own long enough to win her heart? Or will destiny betray him and destroy everything he has ever dreamed of?

The heroin wasn't a -teen-, and as an older vamp fan, I'm sick of all the stuff that caters to the too young. Our heroin has a responsible mundane grownup life as an alone still-single. I like relatable characters in unreal stories.
My favorite character is the vampire King! So take charge and beautiful. He doesn't take "no" in today's politically correct world!
I'm a first time listener to this author.
There was one scene in the story that made me laugh.
Thank you author for this particular book, I love it.
Like many of the other reviewers the first 5 hours of this nearly killed me to listen too. It was fully of introductions, and not a lot of substance, and I saw little point most of it. The two main characters were rarely present and the points they were present for held little to the story.
Fast forward to last couple hours and it picked up and the story became decent and intriguing enough to make me think about trying the second novel. If it continues with actual story and less world history / explanation it should be good.
I disagree with the reviews on the narrator as I have adored everything Antony Ferguson and this one is no exception, the drag of the story was not due to his narration at all, and due to the story itself.
Love to read!
This was overall a decent book, and the start of a potentially strong series. My only issue was a lack of development between the two main characters. They went from 0 to 60 with very few interactions or even "moving" interactions. I think the author focused more on setting the stage for future books and characters, making the main character development suffer a little. However, I am definitely getting the next book in the series with hopes that it offers a little more interaction.
In my opinion, a good story evokes emotion. It'll make me laugh, angry, or cry. But it can't just be words on a page. It has to do something
Fell apart from the middle to the end. Could have been great, just didn't make it. Don't know what else to say. Save your money.

Too to much I had to keep going back to figure out who they were.
No I was to confused by the amount and how fast he switched between characters.
Roman was smokin hot! But the sex scenes were lacking something. I'm just not sure what it was.
I am giving this review with the next couple books in mind. This story in and of it's self is a good story. It's not spectacular, but it's the basis for the next books. What I liked about this book was, it is "all about the story" there is plenty of substance and you have to pay attention. You can't space off and still know where you are in this romance. There is very little sex and it isn't graphic so you can make your own moral judgements there. It's still for adults.
The narrator was terribly monotone.
I will likely end up listening to the next book in the series because the first left me hanging, but I sure wish someone else was narrating it.
wish I could say yes, but for listening not so much, better to read it. The book it's self got 4 stars, but I can't stress enough how awful the narrator was.
I liked the plot over all.
the narrator was as interesting to listen to, as dry toast is to eat. He was so monotone, it felt like he was reading instructions instead of a story :(
not really, it wouldn't translate well.
Read this book, but the narrator ruined it as an audio book IMO
I'd rather listen than read!!!! This is my joy!!!
The Narrator was boring, I am not sure if he was instructed to read slow to intensify the story or if this is his normal thing. It took forever to get the story line going and then once it finally got going the story was over. Next you know epilogue.

Better Narrator, way better story line. This story line is an adaptation of Twilight.
The warewolfs had nothing to do with this story line. Why did they waste two chapters!?!?!?
I very seldom hate books but this book was a waste of my time!!!
