their life Now on the day of the solar eclipse in 1989 Curry has a chance life Now on the day of the solar eclipse in 1989 Curry has a chance release himself from his bond and miserable existence However instead of burning in the sunlight Curry seems immune and takes a chance to simply escape from Marsala s grip Curry finds himself a mentor and eventually finds a room to rent in the house he once built Curry believes this is a good place to start over but is thrown when the older couple who he rents from says their granddaughter Chauncey will be staying the summer with them When Chauncey enters Curry s life he feels a spark and hears the whisper of the wish he made Curry soon learns that Chauncey is a gift his Ag pe created just for him They share an unbreakable love however Marsala would do anything to take Chauncey out of the euation leaving Curry with a difficult decision This vampire romance started off strong and fizzled midway through for me I was at first very interested in Curry s story how he was turned and Marsala s obsession Curry did fall into one of the vampire tropes of hating himself and what he was turned in to I liked how he improved his outlook with Sebastian and Soloman and wish of that was highlighted I was also intrigued by the setting of the story and wanted to now about Curry as a human as well as how a large group of vampires came to settle along the Mississippi coast I really liked the romance at first and was very interested in the idea of an Agape While the Ag pe was explained well Curry once again fell into the vampire romance trope of deciding to go against his feelings in order to Bulletproof Feathers: How Science Uses Nature's Secrets to Design Cutting-Edge Technology keep Chauncey safe It is here that the book started to feel really familiar to another wellnown vampire romance and the plot continued to follow suit This really didn t feel too vampirey to me especially since Curry was regaining parts of his humanity
With His Ag Pehis Ag pe needed vampire action scares and suspense While the ending threw in some new twists it wasn t uite enough to redeem the story for me or want to read the rest of the series I read this book based on a rec from a Goodreads reader glad I did I am really enjoying these indie authors and their creative ideas on paranormal romance Blood of Anteros was an enjoyable read I wasn t so sure about it the first few chapters in but then all of a sudden there was a spark of energy in the writing and I couldn t put it down I loved reading the story from Curry s POV we usually get the human perspective and I loved having the perspective of the vampire himself Near the end when we were introduced to Sully I was tantalized by the mystery of her The leech inside me came out to find prey but found none in this enigmatic girl The close proximity of her essence didn’t entice the monster within so what did that make her I had uestions than answers but one thing was unmistakable; although she released me from her embrace her hold on me remained Cruel.

Felt like there was too much dialogue and the introduction seemed forced Cates had such beautiful descriptions and character development up until Cates had such beautiful descriptions and character development up until I would have liked to see emotion behind Curry and Sully s reunion However this was a very small section of the book and it would not deter me from rec to readers out there Of course we were left with a small cliffy just some unfinished business and I eagerly await the next book in this series This is the first book in a series that I
