Alfonso Serrano is a hunted man. For months he’s managed to elude the Darkbloods, vengeful foes who won’t rest until he’s dead. But he still craves one dangerous temptation: Lily DeGraff, the sexy Guardian agent he’ll risk anything to protect.
Lily is a wanted woman. Her talent for tracking Sweet—a rare blood type that’s addictive to vampires—makes her a prime target for enemy capture. Her only hope is the stealthy vampire operative who stole into her bed…then left her in despair. Danger aside, Lily won’t let Alfonso near her heart again—until an irresistible hunger threatens to draw them back together… and into an assassin’s snare.
I have not read the first book in this series so I was a bit worried that I would not understand what was going on. Laurie London did a great job of giving enough background that it was very realistic to pick this book up from this point and understand some of the story line without having read book 1. That is one things that I really appreciated. The whole story was not repeated just the pieces that were going to be necessary to move into book two understanding Alfonso’s heart break and distrust as a hunted man and Lily’s concern with her abilities.
It seems to me that both of them are trying to keep their hearts safe but both know that they need to stop the DarkBloods from rounding up the Sweetbloods. I found the dynamic between them to be romantic and interesting. This is another good vampire world that is just a bit different that the rest.
I found this to be a pretty good read worth checking out.
