From Goodreads: Ami isn’t much for trusting strangers. She has a hard time trusting anyone. But she’s no coward, and she’s no pushover in the protection department either. So when she comes across a mysterious warrior taking on eight deranged vampires on his own, she doesn’t hesitate to save his bacon. Of course, that was before she realized what one little rescue would get her into . . .
Marcus Grayden has been an immortal protector of humanity for eight hundred years, and at the moment he’s not interested in backup. From the moment Ami arrives in his life, he can’t deny that she’s strong, smart, and extremely skilled at watching his back. But she’s also destroying his protective solitude and stirring desires he can’t bear to awaken. After all, whatever her secrets — how can she defeat death itself?

First thought when finished: Oh MY! Even better than the first one but really OCTOBER for the next one 🙁
What I Loved: Just about everything! I would really like to wax poetically and make you realize just how fun this series is but I wouldn’t do it justice. The characters are mufti-faceted, rich, deep, and fun. I was never once bored while I listened to the story on audio (11 hours or so) and the story built on the last book. I admit I was a little skeptical about Ami and Marcus in the beginning (it’s a Seth thing) but I quickly grew to love them together. She was just right for the grouch and she melted his little hard heart! It was fantastic. Their give and take was very well done.
What I Liked: I loved the building up to Bastien’s story because I know it is coming next. I think his will be doozy!
Things that made me go huh?: Not a darn thing!
Audio Specific Thoughts: Kristen Potter did a pretty good job with the narration of the story and I really hope they stick with her for the audio. This was enjoyable to listen too!
Final Thoughts: I want Lissette, Seth, David, and Marcus to have books. Oh and can there be a spin-off of the humans please 🙂 Also can we explore Ami’s family too! I know that is a lot LOL Dianne Duvall might just have a fan girl for life LOL
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
