Another brilliantly written suspense. K. A. Tucker never fails to deliver. I have to say that when I started this book I thought it was my least favourite of all of hers that I've read to date but after I got more into the story it once again delivered. Such high quality of writing and it keeps you guessing the whole way through. Loved it.

Vampyres don't exist. They absolutely do not exist. At least I didn't think they did 'til I tried to quit smoking and ended up Undead. Who in the hell did I screw over in a former life that my getting healthy equates with dead? Now I'm a Vampyre. Yes, we exist whether we want to or not. However, I have to admit, the perks aren't bad. My girls no longer jiggle, my ass is higher than a kite, and the latest Prada keeps finding its way to my wardrobe.

It felt like this was Written by a teenage squirrel on speed. Basically just like they wrote down every random thing that came into their head. Basic plot OK but soooooo badly written I felt like I was losing brain cells with each sentence. I made myself finish it because I'd wasted a credit on it and had nothing new left in my library but I really wish I didn't..

This story was much better than my initial expectations from the blurb and reviews. It has parallels to the movie "the vow" and Sophie kinsellas' novel "remember me" however it has a completely different spin on the whole situation which makes it a really good read.

It feels as if this was written by more than one person. The dual points of view just totally ruin it because the female POV writing is brilliant. It's witty, she is an endearing, funny, very relatable character. The Male POV is like a wet blanket. He is boring as bat sh*t and there is nothing endearing or even interesting about his character. There is absolutely no chemistry between the two. The writing and even the relationship "chemistry" could have been slightly saved if it was all written in female POV, because he made me feel a lot less like I wanted to bang my head against a wall when he was described in her POV.. but unfortunately there is no saving it. It was terrible and such a shame because the gist of the plot was decent and had potential which just didn't deliver.

I'm not sure if this was just a really good book or the fact that I watched Only the brave recently made it seem better than it was because of the emotional connection it provoked... I'm thinking maybe a little from column A and a little from column B.
I was pleasantly surprised at this book. Again, not sure if it was totally just because of the book but it was much better than I had initially anticipated anyway so I definitely got my moneys worth plus some.
I like the mix of genre it's like a mix between Only the Brave and a star is born.
This wasn't some life changing novel, it was still just a typical romance mills and boons type book. BUT! for a romance, it had a lot of depth and I would definitely recommend it.

Decent plot. Started out well with potential but then it just didn't deliver at all. It went nowhere at all and ended up being a pretty annoying story I really only finished because I had spent the money on it. There was a lot of chemistry between the two main characters but the actual "scenes" were seriously lacking the chemistry. Disappointing.

To survive where I live, you have two options. You can be a Normal - a cheerleader, jock, member of the debate team, or on the yearbook committee. You pretend everything is normal. Or you can be crew. You insult us? We hurt you. You hurt us? We really hurt you. And if you f--k with us, we will end you. My name is Bren. I'm the only female in the Wolf Crew - the best, fiercest, and most dangerous crew there is - and we have a rule: There's no falling in love. Well...too late.

Everything I know is a lie. I'm an ordinary mortal girl. Lord Irrik is a depraved dragon shifter. King Irdelron is an immortal tyrant. In the disease ridden land of Verald, life is mapped out much like the established rings of our kingdom. Everyone has a role. Me? I'll be uselessly serving potato stew for the rest of my life because I can't make anything grow. But starvation brews rebellion. When the king strikes, I'm captured by Lord Irrik. Instantly, I'm embroiled in a deadly game. One where I'm desperate to understand the rules.

So much better than I expected. Brilliant story left much more to come in the next in the series. I have to admit one of the twists was quite obvious throughout the book but there were still some surprises. Really enjoyed the narrator as well.
