Bound by Night by Larissa Ione

                                 This book was aquired through
 The first installment in a sexy new paranormal romance series by Larissa Ione, author of the bestselling Demonica series!

Nicole Martin was only eight years old when the vampire slaves rose up in rebellion and killed her family. Now she devotes her life to finding a vaccine against vampirism, hoping to wipe out her memories—along with every bloodsucker on the planet. But there’s one thing she cannot destroy: her searing, undeniable attraction for the one man she should hate and fear the most . . .

A member of the renegade vampire MoonBound Clan, Riker is haunted by demons of his own. When he recognizes Nicole and remembers how her family enslaved his loved ones, his heart burns for vengeance. But when he kidnaps Nicole and holds her in a secret lair, his mortal enemy becomes his soul obsession, his greatest temptation, and, perhaps, his only salvation—a hot-blooded lover who could heal him with her touch . . . or bury him forever

 Despite this being a fairly good book, there is one huge aspect of it that I just could not wrap my head around and that was the fact that the author created the vampires and made them slaves to humans. I mean, how does that work, humans, the thing's they eat, weaker life forms and they are still slaves. Even defanging vampires still EAT humans, they have super strength and in this series they even have powers. I just did not understand how that worked but I would love to read a prequel explaining how it came about.

Another thing that was interesting was the toxicity of Boric Acid to vampire and how through research and study it was turned into a weapon to control them. I am curious on the chemistry of it and why it is considered poison to the vampires, how it kills them.

I will say this, this book felt a little bit like a Vampric Soap Opera, going up and down with one twist after the next and personally I had no problem with that. I love reading drama's when they are done right.

I think the most interesting scene was the defanged chef feeding on Nicole as a child in the begging, I could not even imagine the trauma of having to go through such an event and surviving. 

Interesting Quotes:
  1. "Maybe my magic vagina will cure you of all the traumatic acts my family inflicted on you."
  2. "I figured no one would randomly pick up anything they thought was full of superstinky bat shit."
Favorite Character:
I think my favorite character would have to be Myne. There is so much I want to know more about him and I just loved his personality. I truly hope the next book is about him and what happened to him because that is one I would love to sink my teeth into. 

4 out of 5 Raven's!
