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.

*mini review alert! This is my lazy way of reviewing. At least I can admit it.*

Oh Vlad. Oh Lela. You two always know exactly who to mercilessly kill to get me out of my reading slumps!

I seriously can’t believe it took me 8 months to read this book. I loved Once Burned, I even ran to the store on release day for Twice Tempted. But I just haven’t had the drive or desire to read it. Thank heavens I was in a slump and needed to mix things up a bit, because Twice Tempted was perfect.

Twice Tempted picks up right where Once Burned left off. Lela and Vlad are having “issues” and Lela’s powers are still on the fritz thanks to Vlad’s aura. Then everything is tossed upside down and the line between “good guy” and “bad guy” disappears, and Lela has to bust her ass to make that line come back. I think this is what I like most about this series. Shit happens, and the world doesn’t stop. I hate reading a book and while the zombie apocalypse is unfolding around you some how the MC’s are able to stop time and have the worlds most intimate sex. Like, no MC’s. NO. Sex has no place when the end of the world is happening around you! I also loved all the death. Yes, I know that sounds so sick and twisted but I can explain! Death in a book, is delicate. You have to kill off the right characters in the right way at the right time or risk pissing off the reader. Twice Tempted had the perfect recipe for death, and I’m not ashamed to say that a few of those scenes caught me totally be surprise.

There were parts that pissed me off and there were characters that made me want to stab things (damn you Gretchen!) but overall Twice Tempted was everything I wanted and then some. There was more plot (albeit I saw it coming a mile away), and I found myself hoping and praying that some characters got their own series (MAXIMUS). The sex scenes were hot and fabulous as always! I love how Frost has left me giggling and looking for any information on the third and final book in the series.

    Hellooo sexy cover model. I like the way you describe this book, and I completely agree about the end of the world sex thing! I’m glad I’m not the only one that sits there confused. Like, really? Simmer down for a minute and deal with the problem then have some awesome celebratory sex if you must. I think I may have to go track down the first book.

      YES! I always sit there and mutter “you guys couldn’t wait till you got to safety?”. Apocalypse sex is just not ok in my book lol! I hope you decide to star the series. Vlad is something else!

    I haven’t started this series yet…but I really want to. Lol, characters never wait to have sex AFTER they fix a problem.
    I think I’m definitely going to try to find the first one next time I go to the library
