I rate this book 3.5 out of 5 stars.
(Finished Reading: 17/06/14
My 22nd book this year.)
This book is about the Bellum sister’s. Their father has just died and in his will he has appointed 3 leaders of the supernatural world to be each of their protectors. The Vampire Leader, Tyrian, is Chloe’s protector. The blue haired demon, Telal, is Lily’s protector. Lyonis, the Alpha shapeshifter is Willow’s protector.
On the day of their turning 29years of age, they will be under the protection of their protectors. Being from a family of Succubus, once they reach sexual maturity at 29, they need sex instead of food to stay alive.
But Chloe and Willow have decided they don’t need protectors. The sister’s cast a spell to deflect the men from their lives, but something has gone wrong and they have summoned a demon from the undead; who wants to kill Chloe to gain power.
Chloe end’s up in Death Castle where his protector, Tyrian, begrudgingly watches over her. With strict rules of boundaries within the castle walls, she is now trapped like a prisoner. Feisty Chloe doesn’t abide by just any man’s rules so she goes ahead with immediate effect, breaking rules.
Tyrian is a cold hearted being who must put up with Chloe, ensure her safety and put up with her childish mannerisms.
On Chloe’s 29th, sex is all there is on her mind. Somehow she finds herself drawn to Tyrian and no other being. So the fight begins as she risks everything to win Tyrian over. Can she stake her claim on the most cold hearted being? Or must she subdue herself to a lifetime of other men?
The explicit scenes in this book are very vivid and great to read. But the storyline is too rushed, patchy and dramatic.
I love the idea behind this series but there were many flaws that I hate to list. I hate the dialogue between the sisters. They speak like teenagers and act like rebellious children, bearing in mind they are supposed to be 29, it just didn’t work for me.
The love-hate battles between each of the sisters and their protectors seemed over the top and unbelievable. Yet I felt the thrill at every scene. I am very much looking forward to reading more in book 2.
Thankfully, the storyline picked up a bit in the second half of the book. I managed to enjoy this book although the book was empowered by explicit scenes. I feel like the book would have benefitted from a little more story and a little less explicit scenes.
Either way I would still recommend this book. I love vampires, I apparently love Succubus, shapeshifters as well. I still can’t say I love demons, but this blue haired, honey eyed Telal might be a first to like.
