I will be honest, I was not sure what to expect when I picked up this book. Honestly I won it in a giveaway that I didn't even remember entering so I really had no clue what the book was even about.
Imagine my surprise when it turned out to be a vampire love story.
I really enjoyed the book even though I had a hard time getting into it. A fact I was going to blame partially on the fact that as of lately I have just had an urge to write on one/all of my ongoing projects. (I currently have three)
So lets get started.
Cover work, it is definitely eye catching and in all honesty has a somewhat snow white feel to it. A red rose bleeding against the purity of freshly fallen snow in a forest. It was probably what drew me into picking the book out of the numbers in my TBR pile.
Characters', Our leading male role goes by the name of Michael Tyler. A writer who is a complete mystery given he values his privacy. An obvious point as he lives in the middle of nowhere. He is a little gruff in the beginning. Having to hide your identity will do that to ya.
But as our Leading lady Nicole starts to wear him down you start to see the softer side of him. The side that makes you fall in love with him and cheer the two on.
Speaking of Nicole she has had some trouble with her profession, as a nurse there was an incident that left her traumatized and afraid at even just the site of blood. Lucky her that she gets to meet her favorite author quite by accident.
The two start to experience a love story that could have been right out of the pages of one of Michaels romance novels that he writes.
I will say that my favorite part by far was the ending. I kept thinking, surely they won't do it. It is going to be exactly like all the other love stories. I will tell you this, it is nothing like any of the other love stories but I won't spoil it for you. I will leave the surprise for you guys!
