Sarah's known monsters...and John isn't one. Sarah's life isn't going well. She's divorced from an abusive jerk, been drugged, stuffed in her trunk and nearly kidnapped. Between that and a harsh winter, it's almost more than a girl can take. She's rightly distrusting of any man's affection, so an ice-skating date with John - who doesn't seem to feel the cold - isn't exactly on her bucket list. Yet something about him captures her attention.
John is determined to live as an ordinary mortal. He's moved into the city, bought a sports bar and works there as the bartender. As a new vampire, he's never considered dating, until he meets Sarah. Prudence dictates he stay away from her, but everything about her calls to him...right down to her cute animal socks.
Sure, finding out John is a vampire is scary, but Sarah's learned not all monsters have fangs. Besides, someone else isn't too happy about their budding relationship. Sarah will have to survive before getting her chance at love.
I picked this book up at Netgalley because the blurb sounded interesting to me, while I liked the book it was not what I was expecting. But to be honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect.
I should warn some people this book has some rather violent scenes or flashback scenes about abuse and rape. So if that is something you rather not read about I would not suggest to you. Although, there is not a whole lot of it in the book, but it is still there and I know some people might not want to read about it. But you could easily skip those.
Other than that I rather enjoyed the book and the characters.
Sarah grows a lot through the book and becomes a lot more confident in herself. She wont give up no matter what she goes through and it is a lot in this book.
I liked John, he is a great charterer but I would have liked him a bit more of an Alpha.
The story was packed full of action, heartbreak, romance and some hot naughty time. There were a few twists in it that I liked but I was not shocked.
I thought it had a good ending and was wrapped up nicely.
I was kind of torn rating this book, but I decided to rate it at a 3 ½ ★. While it was a good book and I enjoyed a lot, there was something I couldn't fully connect to.
