Summary: After Gabrielle manages to escape a gang of rouges vampire feeding(she thinks they’re gang members or something), she tries to do the right thing and report it to the police – only there is no evidence of a crime having been committed. But the next night a man shows up at her door claiming to be from the police – but in reality he really a vampire looking to see how much she knows!
On MMC past:

Real old – first generation sort.

Gabriel: Dead mother. Lots foster families until 12 when she found nice one. She did some cutting when she was younger.
POV: Third (Several)
First line: Her baby wouldn’t stop crying.
What I think about this one…
I don’t like it when vampire’s are aliens – it’s just not right. Otherwise this book is okay for a paranormal romance book – it’s a bit cheesy with Gabriel being the baby Lucan saved over twenty years ago, the vampires that get addicted to blood(seriously? aren’t all vamps suppose to be all about blood lust.) What I do sort of like is that the vampires are alive – they can have kids (only boys, they need human female’s to reproduce. Which is sort of weird and totally unrealistic since all species need both boys and girls to be a species.)
The characters are kind of interesting – at least they aren’t boring. But Gabriel is a bit too much of an outsider – don’t connect well with her friends, goes to totally weird places to take photos. Lucan seems a bit over used to – the cool king (or biggest bad ass out there) that falls in love with the fragile little human? Also he’s rich and very hot…anyone seeing similarities with..all other vampire stories?
Still the book is not half bad it’s just a bit too much soap opera for me. It also feels like a bit of a suckier (no pun intended) version of J.R. Ward’s black dagger brotherhood series.
