Publisher's Summary

It’s been 12 years since Jack Masterson last set foot on Lestaron Island. Fresh out of college and lacking a clear direction in life, he’s been asked by his aunt and uncle to travel back to the place he once called home to settle his recently deceased grandfather’s estate. Jack has little to look forward to in regard to his return, outside of a chance to reacquaint himself with Katie, his childhood friend and former crush.

When Jack discovers that his grandfather wasn’t broke after all, as he’d been led to believe, he’s surprised. When he discovers that most of the old man’s monetary assets have been left to him, along with the employment contract of a cute, young maid, he’s virtually dumbfounded.

And when an old enemy of the Masterson family decides to strike in the wake of his grandfather’s passing, Jack is the natural target. After being turned into a monster by a beautiful woman who claims to be his new broodmother, he’s left with a new outlook on life, one that strides a thin line of moral judgment. Dark magic, enthralling powers, and a thirst for blood that just can’t seem to be sated. Would it really be so bad to give in?

Warning: This book contains graphic sex, a slow building harem, and increasingly disconcerting moral dilemmas.

Not what you think.

If that "slow building harem" brought you here, keep moving. No harem here. Just your typical person bitten by a vampire, but instead of embracing it, they despise. Not to mention the typical OVERLY GOOD MC. "Even if they did try to rob, rape, and probably kill this person. Biting them just isn't right." Well letting them go so they can do more bad stuff isn't the RIGHT thing to do either. SMH!

Don't forget the childhood friend you left as a kid, but find out he/she is engaged when you reunite. If you've seen any romcom, twilight, and the vampire diaries. Then you can guess everything that will happen in this book. Oh! Give all the male characters a womans voice while your at it.

suffer through 90%, and you'll be excited for pt 2

this story is completely idiotic. For now, until i do a real review ill leave you with the worst logic breaking idiocy of this book so far. The MC is bullied physically and mentally by his 10 year old crush for hours into the book even though he is in complete control the entire time... waste of a possibly great series i think. (will re-review more thoroughly upon completion of 2nd half.)

emo vampire drama

Most of the book is MC vampire wishing he could bite people and feeling sad about it sometimes biting people and then feeling bad about that instead. Throughout the book there are hints at past secrets, plot threads and side chars that are more interesting than the boring main chars with internal dialog drama problems. None of hinted at backstories or the villains motives are revealed by the end of the book

Not worth the time.

The story was a bit slow and silly. The main character went nowhere and the story line went nowhere. It has such great potential for this for what it was a story about a poor little rich kid who for some strange reason loss all those memory and everything else. A childhood friend which is in love with a coward police officer that is a bully for No reason. The main villain was basically just running around doing random acts of silliness . I felt like I wasted 7 hours of my time cause there was no climax nothing it was just running around pretending run around pretending running around pretending and the main captor feeling sorry over and over again about being a vampire. No one in the storyline characters of the wise ever really got to do conversation where to explaining from to anyone or to even the readers.

So so

struggled to finish. The drama seemed a bit forced. the main character a bit whiny and lame.

Loved the interaction.

The sexual interaction between Jack and the all the lead female characters was quite erotic.

some good parts, but overall bad

so, somewhat spoiler alert....

do we imagine a small Nantucket sized island is going to have a large number of muggers? i mean, muggings sort of rely on anonymity. who mugged you? George.

also, a deputy runs away and leaves main character in a bind because of monsters. he's mocked for it. no actual consequences.... no follow up. like hey, I know I left you fighting a missing person, what happened with that? he's not brought in for questioning after the fact. apparently case closed.

plus, there is a formula that makes you resistant to vamp powers. vampires are out to get you. why aren't you swilling that shit on the daily?

becoming a vamp makes your junk bigger... that was stupid and unnecessary.

maybe a vamp in the house... let me go change into my tight leather cat suit.

vamp on the loose, but I'm unwilling to let it affect my personal life.... so date night!

you are being plagued by blood lust and the regular kind of lust? meet me at the gym where I teach yoga for a pep talk. gasp! were you eyeing my friends!!!! I am shocked and disappointed!

too much makes no sense.

book sucked

didnt like this book felt th performance was alright but the story was really lacking any real intent. now I'm left with no excitement for the next book and could really careless about any of the characters. main character was horrible just whined the whole book and put himself into situations that he never resolves and whine about.

Clicking noises in the background

Another reviewer noticed this too: there are distracting clicking noises in the background. Probably a mouse or something like it, so the readers can page through the book. Very disappointing.
