"Dating the Prince of Darkness has its challenges...
Leila's psychic abilities have been failing her, and now she isn't sure what the future holds. If that weren't enough, her lover, Vlad, has been acting distant. Though Leila is a mere mortal, she's also a modern woman who refuses to accept the cold shoulder treatment forever–especially from the darkly handsome vampire who still won't admit that he loves her.
Like choosing between eternal love and a loveless eternity...
Soon circumstances send Leila back to the carnival circuit, where tragedy strikes. And when she finds herself in the crosshairs of a killer who may be closer than she realizes, Leila must decide who to trust– the fiery vampire who arouses her passions like no other or the tortured knight who longs to be more than a friend? With danger stalking her every step of the way, all it takes is one wrong move to damn her for eternity."
My Thoughts:I’m still obsessed with the Night Huntress Universe and I do not care. I mean, is it really a surprise at this point that I thoroughly enjoyed Twice Tempted? This is such a great world and I’ll never be ready to fully say goodbye.
Leila is a great heroine and I admire her strength and courage. Nothing seems to keep her down. But girl had me so frustrated for the first half of the book. She is so smart, but she was not acting smart for the first half of the book. She didn’t trust her instincts or think things through and I wanted to shake her. Also she still tends to do reckless things in a world she does not understand, which makes me crazy. But she is learning and growing and I’m loving her growth. The first half had me crazy with both her and Vlad, but the second half of the book I was utterly in love with.
Vlad, surprisingly, is probably my least favorite of all of Jeaniene’s guys. He is still better than most other book boyfriends out there, but for me I think I still love Bones, Spade, and Mencheres more. Vlad is just so overbearing and overprotective at times and I get frustrated with him, but I still love him and holy swoon does he deliver. There was one scene in particular that was up on the level of Chapter 32 in One Foot In The Grave.
The plot kept me engaged and kept me guessing. Well there was one thing I pegged early, but other than that I kept changing my suspicions which was fun. Book could have used more Bones though. I’d never say no to more Bones.
All in all, Twice Tempted was a great read and Jeaniene Frost delivered yet again. I am so thankful I dove into this world.
