When she was fifteen, Ryan Moss lost her mind. Or at least that's what the voices in her head want her to believe. Afraid of being locked up for life, she runs from her home and the ones that she loves. A year later, on the streets of Tijuana, she finds something that makes the voices go away. And to get it, she's ashamed to admit, she'll do just about anything. Scraped off the street by the shady owners of an adult club, Ryan is forced to strip for a man she can't see or hear. But she can sense his raging need for her even through the haze of her high, and her body responds with a hunger all its own. To be with him, she must chance the one thing she fears losing the most: Her sanity.
Her blood calls to him, and although he's determined to resist her, Christian's body betrays him. He must make a choice, and he'd better make the correct one. For unbeknownst to him, both of their lives depend on it.
Readers who follow our reviews will recognize the name LE Wilson. That’s because I pretty much read and review everything she writes. She’s an automatic one-click for me. I’ve gotten to know the characters in this series pretty well, starting with Nik and Emma in Blood Hunger, and honestly? Unlike many series that lost their mojo after the first few books (*cough*Sookie Stackhouse*cough*), this one keeps getting better and better.
While I didn’t love Christian quite as much as I loved Nik in Blood Hunger or Brock in To Covet the Fae, he was still everything I’ve come to expect from one of Wilson’s heroes. He’s smart, strong, sexy, and ready to do anything to protect and keep the woman he loves.
Ryan was an especially interesting heroine. She wasn’t the perfect, virtuous little snowflake you find in so many romance novels. She was, of course, a good person at heart, but she was an addict who’d done some pretty unsavory things while feeding her addiction. Watching her character growth throughout the story was very satisfying, and her struggles with addiction seemed very realistic.
But as much as I love the author, I have to call her out on one thing. In her sex scenes (which were, as usual, smoking hot), she used one of our banned penis-related phrases. I won’t call out which one. (And in all fairness, the book was written and published before our list, so she was writing without the rule book. We’ll take ownership of the error...this time.)
All in all, the story was fantastic and exactly what I’ve come to expect from this author. I highly recommend this series to all fans of the paranormal romance genre. But if you haven’t already, start with Blood Hunger. You’ll thank me later.
