It helped a lot, I liked Natasha in the first book but I loved her in this one. This book was a great sexy, suspenseful read, there were a few scenes that I found humorous but I honestly don't know if that was what the author was going for or if I have a dark sense of humor.
They must hurry and rely on Natasha's visions because they only have a week to prove Darian's innocence.
In this second book of the series, Natasha is trying to find the one responsible for the murder of her best friend, Annette.
So if you liked Anita, I think you would like this series, too.
Xavier and Natasha are the stars of this book with Darian and other supernaturals playing supporting roles. I think Devin loves all supernaturals - like those human who loves all races. Other supernaturals from the previous book make an appearances: Adrian and Warren, the shapesifters. Also we see Elise, the Queen shapeshifter, who thinks she's in love with the Master Vampire, Darian. Will Darian and Natasha form a sexual bond in spite of the bond she has with Xavier and the one Xavier has with Darian? Even though Matthew knows what Warren is and has a bond as police detective partners, will their attraction become sexual?
Human lives are just too short. Back to the hedonism: this book is a guilty pleasure filled with Tashas curiosity, her honest questions, her blatant interest in how sexual a vampires kiss can be, etc. The main point is tracking down the bastards who are framing Darian. Favorite passages from this book: In reality, there was no more danger from shape-shifter children than there was from other, fully human children. She has perfected the look helpless way of getting people to do things for her) Well, I hold the act of making love in high regards. A lot of heartache in this world is due to people giving themselves away far too easily. people put so much emphasis on sex, like its the end of the world if they dont get any. And its the actions of the irresponsible people engaging in these shallow sex acts that cause so much trouble. In my opinion, this is why people break up so often, why theres so much divorce, disease, and that feeling of unfulfillment no matter what.
I absolutely loved the first book, Desires Unleashed, so I jumped on this very quickly. I loved Natasha in this book. I loved her attitude in this book. I loved her even more in this book. I loved her even more in this book. I loved Xavier in this book as well. I loved all the characters in this book. We know Elise wants Darian and was obsessed with him in book 1. I loved him a lot in this book as well. I had tears in my eyes, I couldn't stop laughing. Oh goodness, now that is how you end a book.
When Natasha Hemingway became involved with the supernatural community and discovered her psychic gifts four months ago, she had a lot of learning and accepting to do. Now dating Darian, the Master Vampire of Chicago, and his lieutenant and lover, Xavier, she's becoming comfortable with her own gifts and with the supernatural community. While it's difficult for Natasha to get alone with Elise, Darian's former lover, and Sergio, Elise's fellow pride leader, she accepts that if she wants to save Darian's life she'll have to learn to get along with more supernatural beings. When Natasha's psychic dreams lead Xavier, Natasha, Elise, Sergio and 2 other supernaturals to Moscow on the trail of Russian mobsters who framed Darian in order to gain possession of information they needed, will the team be able to work together and make it back to Chicago before Darian is executed?
I cannot express enough how much I loved this book. I read the last one and thought I'd love for this to be a series. I was even called a giggly little school girl at work I loved it so much. The dialogue throughout the whole book was so well written. Speaking of which...I sure would LOVE to see these come to a big screen. And I'm super happy that Natasha is coming to terms with their method. Oooohhhhh I can't wait to see where that relationship is gonna go. Especially since I know there's several more.
