Arianna is a demon hunter who isolates herself from society. Over the past few months she has become increasingly dependent on her uncertain alliance with Kade, a vampire informant who literally stepped out of the shadows and into her life.
On the night of a rumored attack from a group of demons, called Eros, who feed off passion for sustenance, Arianna meets with Kade to plan a counterattack before the demons can strike. However, upon retreating to Kade’s apartment for supplies, both Arianna and Kade are overwhelmed with a sudden rush of passion. Their bodies refuse to obey their minds, and before they can stop themselves, they are engaged in endless rounds of lovemaking. Lost to pleasure even as their minds fight sensation and each other, Kade surrenders to his love for Arianna, and tries to convince her he is what she’s needed all along.
Sometimes, possession is mutual.
Arianna's past is one of sadness and loss. Her way of coping is to spend her night’s demon hunting with the main goal being to find those responsible for the murder of her parents. Along the way, she meets the sexy and mysterious vampire by the name of Kade, who offers to help her in her quest for revenge by supplying her with intel, but at what price? Arianna never expected her life to be so irrevocably changed when a night of demon hunting goes wrong, or would that be goes right?
Rosalie Stanton takes the cake when it comes to writing sex scenes that take up the majority of the book. Not that I'm complaining. She gives a new perspective on what could be considered repetitious and routine by allowing the characters' personalities to really shine during those moments. The reader will learn a lot about both characters and their own internal struggles while experiencing some of the best pleasure scene writing I've read. It might be a little misleading, since one might assume that since Arianna is a demon hunter, there will be equal parts action both in and out of the bedroom, but just be aware that is not the case. Nevertheless, I couldn't put it down!
Recommended reading for those looking for a steamy read with a very possessive vampire looking to get possessed himself (great title, by the way).
