That's What I'm Talking About

I generally review romance, paranormal and urban fantasy. I tend to pick review books that I want to read, so generally my reviews will be positive. I always give my honest opinion: good, bad, and indifferent.

Deeper Than Midnight - Lara Adrian Deeper Than Midnight features the romantic coupling of Corinne and Hunter. She was held prisoner by the evil Draco for 75 years, subject to his ungodly breeding experiments. He is the outcome of said experiments, but escaped Draco’s lair for freedom with the Order. Knowing all of this, it is understandable when I tell you that their romance took a long time to develop. At almost halfway through the book there was still no spark between the couple - other than a heated glance.

When the sparks finally do fly, it was tender and HOT. Even though I felt nothing from this couple until that point, I found myself jumping into their emerging passion with both feet (and a fan to cool me off). Their scenes were really well put together, and Ms. Adrian created a smooth transition from the timid and fearful couple to one that was ready to move forward with a physical relationship.

However, the love story took a back seat to the action with Chase and the overall, series-spanning story arc involving Draco. The book ended with an stunning cliff hanger, and all I can say is that I am COUNTING the days until I can get my hands on the next book. And even though the featured couple wasn’t as prominent as I would have liked, I enjoyed the other pieces of the story so very much.

My Rating: Enjoyed - 4 Stars - strongly recommend (A-)j
