World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎
Character development: 🧛🏻🧛🏻♂️🧛🏻♀️🧛🏻
The heroine: Sherry Carne – owns a store that sells kitchen appliances, gadgets and everything you could possibly need in a kitchen. She has worked very hard from the time she was in college to make her store a success and it is.
The Hero(es): Basileios Argeneau – an immortal who is over 3000 years old, born in Atlantis where they were technologically advanced. Atlantis is where the nano’s were created that heal them from nearly everything and keep them at the age of about 25, but require more blood than the body is able to produce to keep working. Basil is on the north American council and is the brother of Lucian who is the head vampire in charge.
The Story: Sherry is minding her own business in the office of her store when a teenage girl runs through the store and into the office. She hides behind the wall and sneaks peeks through the one way window to the store. Sherry sees men enter who are looking for the girl. So she tries to help the girl get away.
Sherry finds out the men were vampires and the young woman tells her she is as well and she has a surprise for sherry which turns out to be an extremely handsome and somewhat formal speaking man. Sherry also finds out that she is possibly the fated mate of the sexy man and that they have to keep her with them for her safety.
I liked this story because it flowed well and though Sherry seems to take everything well at first she kind of freaks out in her head a few times at all the crazy information she finds out. It is also pretty funny that all the immortals she encounters (except Basil) can read her mind and do so often especially when she is freaking out.
The romance was great, the book was steamy and I liked the side stories about the no-fanger’s that were out to kidnap the girl and about the fact that there may have been another immortal in Sherry’s life that she never knew about.
The narration was fine, but I like dual narration with a female and a male narrator. So I take off one point for the narration. I will definitely continue to read more from this series. I like that each can be basically read as a stand-alone since I started at book 30 and am now jumping around to whatever books sound interesting to me. I don’t know why but I like when the male is the immortal/vampire better than when the female is.
