They’ve burned for each other for two years, the forbidden attraction between them growing each night. Now resisting the sinful desires of their hearts is becoming impossible.
Javier knows better than to succumb to his hunger for Lilah. The mortal female belongs to a powerful aristocrat patron of Vampirerotique, the theatre he runs with three other vampires. A single touch is all it would take to break the sacred law of his kind, sentencing himself to death, but his passion for her has become too fierce to ignore and he will risk everything to make Lilah his.
Lilah has fought her desire for Javier since arriving at his theatre as a servant but each glance he has stolen, his eyes promising pleasure that will satisfy her longing for him, has chipped away at her defences and she can no longer deny her need and her forbidden feelings for the powerful vampire male.
When they find themselves alone in a private box during one of the erotic performances, will they surrender to their passion and live out their wildest fantasies in a night of wicked pleasure or will the threat of Lilah’s master keep them apart forever?– Goodreads
Hot read alert! Really hot read 😀
I’ve had a lot of fun reading this, the notion of the Vampirerotique was a really hot one. The notion of humans belonging to vampires is a really fun tangent for me to read, and as I often do I found myself wanting the story to explore that aspect more, but I’m hoping the next installments in the series will 😀 Yes, I can be shameless, sue me!
The characters were what I liked the most, Javier and Lilah were really great to read; of course, of the two my favorite was Javier, predictable, I know. The emotions and strenuous desires of the vampire were very vivid, I was overwhelmed with his covetous desires for Lilah – in this too the author did a fabulous job at bringing the story to life. Javier’s feelings and care for Lilah are touching, so it feels somewhat strange for me to describe this as erotica, more like adult intense romance.
Lilah was an interesting character as well, she was vulnerable and sort of shy while at the same time brave, and there was a distinct sense of sensuality about her wrapped in this sort of irresistible innocence, so I could totally see why Javier fell for her.
One of the aspects I liked a lot about Javier and Lilah was their chemistry, sort of simmering and simmering and then bursting into this yummy intensity, totally awesome. Their relationship was about a lot of feeling as well as attraction, that’s what makes a really good adult read in my opinion, and this was definitely a great adult read, awesome in fact.
And since we’re talking characters, let me tell you I totally want to read more about Snow, he was the most intriguing and mysterious character for me. I SO want to read more about him, I’d love to see him as main character in a story or 10, I totally dig him that much.
All in all, I say you should read this if you’re an adult and you’re into PNR, I loved it and I’ve read it already twice since I got the ARC – that’s a really rare occurrence!
