First in the Underground Encounters series.
Nike loves visiting the goth club Vamps—she can exchange her firefighter uniform for a slinky fantasy outfit. There she runs into the man she’d been admiring from afar at a rock-climbing gym. He’s been the star of all her sexual fantasies, so is it any wonder they end up in his private room upstairs? Just when things begin to heat up, Michel’s enemies appear.
Michel isn’t an ordinary mortal. And someone from his past is on the hunt for vengeance. Michel and Nike are forced to run and hide out in a coastal cottage in Maine. They can’t resist their attraction and spend the nights exploring each other’s bodies while trying to sort out how they feel. Can they overcome their differences while evading the predators chasing them?
The only two female firefighters in town just happen to like to hang out at a goth/punk club on their night off. Ok. I’m interested. Add sexy vampires and supernatural beings and I’m definitely interested.
Problem is, it ended too soon. Great build up. Awesome sex scenes. Way too short of a story. I didn’t have time to really get invested in the characters before it was over. I definitely never developed any feeling against the bad guy. He was just there.
As an independent reviewer for Romance Authors that Rock it only got that fourth star for those hot steamy sex scenes. Great bones, needs more meat.
