Into The Light by Katherine Hastings
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A lighter vampire story!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎
Character development: 😳🤬😮🤨
The heroine: Amelia – recently divorced from her cheating ex. Amelia has to work two full time jobs in order to pay her mortgage and try to work down the credit card debt her husband left her with.
The Hero: Aiden – Aiden is a vampire who has been alive for centuries. He has more money than he could ever spend and has already outlived the love of his life. Modern times have made it hard for vampires to feed with traffic camera’s, cell phones and security camera’s everywhere, so Aiden has solved the problem in an unorthodox way.
The Story: Aiden and Amelia meet at a night club where she was working as a waitress at night to make ends meet. He later proposed a solution to both of their problems, offering her five million dollars to feed from her daily for five years.
Amelia is pretty quick to recover from learning that vampires are real, and I was happy to see that she didn’t have to face some moral dilemma over whether she should take Aiden up on his offer. She was pretty matter of fact about the offer and takes him up on it very quickly. I liked this twist on your standard vampire fare and I always enjoy a story where the two main characters live in the same house. The romance was natural and not too quick and not too slow.
The narration was done by Alex Black and Anna Black. I loved the fact that they had both the male and female narration within each chapter, like a play. I never like it when they have men do female voices within the male chapters and vice versa. Though the narration wasn’t perfect, it was very good.
One more thing, I did love when Amelia got the makeover and the Pretty Woman shopping scene, where she was given carte blanche to buy anything she wanted. And the revenge scene was pretty awesome as well.
