Night Bites (Mackenzie Vampires #2)
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Cindy Harper has an ice-cream flavor for every emotion. Vanilla caramel fudge eases the stress of dealing with her weird and wacky guests at the Woo Woo Inn. But no sweet treat from her freezer is smooth, creamy, or tempting enough to cool down her dark fantasies about Thrain Davis.Thrain is a man to be enjoyed on a strictly primitive level. Every woman who-s ever seen him smile wonders about the pleasure his mouth could give her and recognizes the secrets in his hard blue gaze. Too late Cindy realizes the danger of inviting an ancient vampire into her inn. The concept of fanged creatures of the night scares her witless. Besides, he forces her to examine her past when she-s just fine with her present. He does have an upside, though. Who needs ice cream when you have a hot and yummy immortal in your bed?
Cindy runs a hotel specialising in an experience of the supernatural kind, but when Mr. Hot sexy vampire walks in and books a room, things start to get very interesting. Cindy has a secret, she may look twenty eight but she has lived for over seven centuries and has no idea why, little does she know that Thrain has the answers she seeks and has been sent to bring Cindy to her father Darach.
I have to say, I was expecting so much more from this book, it was such a chore for me to read. I found myself putting the book down for days at a time trying to get myself motivated to continue on and finish it but it was tough going, it just didn’t capture me, I was seriously considering just giving up on it. I probably enjoyed the interaction between Trojan the “cat” and Thrain more than anything else. I found the characters so bland and uninteresting, I found myself skimming through most of the book, it was just not suited to my tastes. I think it might have something to do with the way it was written, it just didn’t hold my attention. It did get better towards the end but if I hadn’t read this book, I wouldn’t have missed out on anything. Not even the steamy scenes could save this book for me.
