I have the second book review of the month for L.D. Rose. I was contacted and asked to review not one but two of her books and I have been LOVING them. Paranormal Romance is always exciting to read.
Fledgling vampire Jonathan Kerr has just met his match.
Not even his past life as a former Marine and FBI agent could prepare him for the battle against the monster inside him, struggling to take hold. After an old nemesis of the Senary surfaces in Brooklyn, unleashing chaos and terror in the battered borough, Jon sets out to take him down. Instead, he ends up with far more than he bargained for when he clashes with the beautiful half-vampire hybrid, Lawan Knight.
After escaping near death and suffering unspeakable horror at the hands of vampires, Lawan trusts no one, regardless of species. In between bouts of drunken stupor, her only goal is to exterminate all those who've wronged her, including every member of Jon's vampire bloodline. But Jon's soulful eyes and quick smile crawls under her skin, transforming her black and white world into a hazy shade of gray.
As the days rapidly grow darker, Jon and Lawan turn to one another, but their inner demons threaten to tear them apart. The only way either of them will survive is if they overcome their greatest fear--
Black Bullet is the second book after Releasing the Demons which I reviewed a few weeks ago. I'm not a fan of this books cover, but the eyes on the model are super creepy! However, that blurb though! Gimme the book now, please!
The second book focuses on the same group of characters as the first, along with some new individuals. This could be read as a standalone but having the worldbuilding of the first book sets the scene a little better.
This book is full of action from the get-go, and it's really hard to put down. I love that the writing pulls you in super easily and you're fully immersed in the book. There's a lot of fighting, and shooting and more everything. I loved that every scene had something that gripped you to your seat and forced your heart to pump.
The chemistry is still on point in this book and definitely hyped up. Which is a nice addition, well, I liked it. I honestly don't think I could love a fictional couple more. While the romance was a bit slower than I like, I really enjoyed the development.
Overall this series is becoming one where I can't wait to get my hands on the next! Definitely, recommend and I'm super excited for book three.
