“Rehvenge is used to living in the shadows and dealing with the roughest night walkers around—including the Black Dagger Brotherhood. As his secret identity as a sympath is threatened, he turns to the only light in his ever darkening world—a female vampire untouched by corruption, who’s the only thing standing between him and eternal damnation.”
This is a classic example of bad boy gets girl plot lines that I can’t stand. Rehvenge is a sympath, which is an emotional vampire and completely outlawed in the vampire world. They are ghastly dangerous and they tend to be pure evil or chaotic evil. They can manipulate anyone into anything and they can convince a man to kill himself with his bare hands with just a look. They are the epitome of bad.
Ehlena is a nurse at the vampire hospital. The only thing that is more good than a nurse is a teacher. Add in that Ehlena is taking care of her sick father and has no help except for a care taker (which she has to pay for herself and that I’m pretty sure is in love with Ehlena’s father). So Ehlena is stressed out and doing her best to make ends meet, when one night at work Rehvenge walks in and none of the other nurses will help him because he gives off a creepy vibe. No one is supposed to know that he is a sympath, so it is a well guarded secret.
He then awkwardly hits on her and stalks her until she agrees to go out with him, even then it is out of a duty as a nurse to make sure he is ok. Then he gets kidnapped by his cousin or whatever and is kept in a trap because the king of the sympaths hates that he is sleeping with that woman, even though he is blackmailed into it. This plot is over the top and there is no reason for it.
So this book is about as creepy as a romance novel can get when it comes to how the bond between the couple is formed. It was gross, and I am amazingly happy I have given this author no money to continue to promote stalking and crazy to win women.
1 out of 5 stars. I would not recommend this book.
