Lists with Vamplre Book. Nov 18, Jilly rated it did not like it Shelves: See virginn guy on beach. He looks at you. Talk to hot virgim for 20 minutes. Proclaim your undying love for guy and offer up your virginity. Yes, girls, it’s that easy to find the man of your dreams, and it only takes that long for said man to fall madly in love with you for the rest of your life.
Sure, you don’t know everything about each other. Like last names, where they live, who their friends and families are, how they spend their free time, or the fact that one of them is an und Day 1: Like last names, where they live, who their friends and families are, how they spend their free time, or the fact that one of them is an undead creature of the night.
That’s all those things are. The important thing is that you find each other hot. Because there is never an instance where you could actually get to know some hot person’s personality virgon find it lacking. Attractive people are always attractive on the inside.
You can take that to the bank! And, go ahead and pledge your eternal life to the hunky guy on the beach after a few days. It’s going to work out great!! Do I hate other things about this book? One big pet peeve I have is the fact that every character in this virgn seems to be a racial stereotype.
The French guy talks like Pepe LePew, the Italian guy talks like Mario, the black guy talks like the hood and “looks just like Denzel” I’m guessing this is the only attractive black man the author could think ofthe Russian guys have broken accents that make you think of evil movie villains, and the Scottish guys talk like Groundskeeper Willie from the Simpsons.
Ladies, I hear he’s available In this book, there was an opportunity for a pretty cool storyline with the sicko serial killer who was obsessed with the heroine, but it took a backseat.
A backseat in a very long bus full of insta-love, sterotypes, TSTL characters, and angst. Considering what I’ve seen so far, the author could never have pulled it off anyway. So, here’s a novel idea. I’m actually going to quit reading this series.
I have a stack of these suckers from the library. But, I think it would be best for my blood pressure and my eyeballs. If I keep rolling those suckers this much, they are bound to fall out. I’m looking for a new series.

Poor Robby falls for a suspicious woman, mortal, and an FBI Psychologist, talk about relationship issues. Robby is trying to recover after his terrible torture, mentally he is on the edge, angry and vengeful. His boss sent him to recover on this beautiful Greek island where he spots a woman who catches his eye and his heart.
She gets close pulls away, and then breaks his heart. Yes, it ends with a HEA, they are a safe bet with this series. I love seeing good things happen to good people JL Wang has to be my favorite character at this point- Wait till you hear his full name and his joke about a brother. Apr 01, Jas rated it liked it Recommends it for: People who have invested time into the series.
I will start by saying I don’t feel like I wasted valuable time reading this book; I didn’t hate it, I didn’t love it. In the grand scheme of Sparks “Love at Stake” series, this book was a filler. It did nothing to push along the war with the malcontents, nor did it show anything insightful about the vampires relationship with the CIA.
Instead, Sparks showed us two one-dimensional characters: Robby, who I swear was the most unoriginal of Sparks characters how many times is she really going to pull the “I don’t trust human women because one betrayed me” angst? That’s really the whole basis for the book, there is some background noise about the malcontents and a psycho serial rapist, but neither of these aspects were fleshed out very well.
Because of the lack of excitment? I nitpicked this book a ton while reading it. Here are vampiire of my krrrelyn Olivia is an FBI psychologist, who apparently only relies on her abilities as an empath to do her job to such an extent that not being able to read Robby completely unhinges her. During and after their first evening together, Olivia kept saying “I’m sorry, but I can’t get involved with someone I can’t read” or “But I can’t have a relationship with someone I can’t trust.
On their third “date,” they were already in vampirw and Olivia was nearly ready to hand over the viriginity she has held onto for 24 years. Even though I think she was still on the fence about trusting Robby at all.
I don’t have a problem with people falling in love after 3 dates, especially if they were an intense 3 dates; but at this point, I find it all very unbelievable. I really think both of these characters could have been interesting. Robby was tortured and Olivia had her very own Hannibal Lector, but neither of these incidents or people were ever really talked about. If they had bonded over their vampirre I would have believed in their relationship more.
There was more angst over past hurts than current ones. Why would they send a psychologist out on assignment where they know at least 10 people were killed? It is not her job to analyze a crime scene or do anything with dead people. Wouldn’t it be more up her alley to talk to her co-workers through the episode afterwards?? And then maybe the killer? I really don’t understand why she was sent at all except that was the only way Sparks could have Robby “caught” being a vampire.
I was irritated with how Olivia responded to this. She behaves as if this is something Robby should have told her from the beginning. What she is unwilling to recognize is that this is a secret that involves a whole lot more people than just Robby. Not easy to tell. I think a sparls would be able to figure that out There were just so many things wrong with this book I really can’t understand why I liked it at all.
I liked seeing the other characters again, like Phineas, and I think Sparks has created an interesting world. I’d say anyone who is interested in continuing this series should read this book; it isn’t as bad as I made it sound. I just felt bothered that Sparks didn’t do more with this book when she had so many aspects to play around with Mar 12, Pauline Allan rated it it was amazing Shelves: I happened by this zparks in my local Krogers grocery store and paused.
Everyone who knows me is willing to say that I’m getting a bit flustered with all the vamp series on the shelves today. Truthfully, the cover Thf could give or take, but the title was an eye catcher. Then I flipped it over.
