He’s the predator in the night.
Cold. Ruthless. Hungry.
She’s the prey that can’t stay away.
There are only two ways a human can cross the gates of Bloodstone Institute: as a familiar to one of the Blueblood vampires who attend the elite school or as a snack.I’m neither, but I have to get in at all costs. My brother made a big mistake, and now I have to fix it by stealing from the most powerful and cruel vampire to ever come to Bloodstone, Lucca Della Morte. If that wasn’t almost suicidal, I need to get it done before the spell concealing my human nature wears off.But I forget that I’m only pretending to be a vampire. I’m still human and susceptible to Lucca’s dangerous allure. His darkness calls to my soul. His savagery makes my blood sing. I’m falling for the dark prince, craving him in a visceral way that’s frightening and exciting at the same time.If he discovers my secret, he’ll destroy me. And yet, I can’t help wanting to get closer. I never thought I had a death wish until I met him.

 

Review

 

4 stars

 

This is the setting of a new series around supernatural, think vampires, witches, shifters …and a perfect read in these quarantine time when the brain can’t focus on anything slow paced or uber complicated.

This story was easy to read, compelling, distracting from the doom and gloom with just the right amount of hotness and cocky vampires!

 

The plot in a nutshell: Vivienne or Vivi has been blackmailed by a Dragon kingpin to steal something from a very powerful vampire Lucca Della Morte.

She’ll go, disguised thanks to a spell, to the Bloodtsone academy and will try to get her prize.

But of course, there is the slight problem of her major attraction to Lucca…

 

In the beginning, I didn’t care a lot for Lucca.

He was so arrogant, cocky and certainly a pr!ck!

I even noted on my Kindle:

“Ha. He is so full of himself! So arrogant. I want to see him taken down his pedestal.”

 

Vivi was nothing special either as her first encounter with Lucca left her trembling. She was rather like a mouse going into the lion’s den. Unassuming. No super power. Just human and caring too much for someone to let him down. Willing to risk her life for others.

 

It was amusing to see her so clueless about vampire traditions and society yet trying to blend in that academy.

Lucky for me, soon enough, she unleashed her claws and she no longer cowered in Lucca’s presence.

As their relationship progressed (read Lucca toying with his food and Vivi falling under his spell) Lucca went from predator to very intrigued by Vivi!

It also gave me some Twilight vibes as Lucca is irresistibly attracted to Vivi’s blood yet fights his desire to protect her life. Rings a bell?

 

But Lucca and Vivi’s relationship is not the only trope in that book as you have many secrets to discover, interesting side characters who will probably be the main characters of other books in the series and a curse to destroy.

 

What prevents me for giving me more than four stars?

I think I would have loved getting more witty banter. I know that Michelle can be so funny and I missed that side.

Vivi’s inner thoughts were a valiant attempt at bringing humor but I wanted even more.

Come on Michelle, bring on the big guns as I know that you excel at this!

 

You need a fast paced, easy to read supernatural story filled with cocky males and spunky heroines? Don’t look further.

 

Do you love books with vampires?
