Generations of families festered in their own echoes, repeating the same lives over and over again. I couldn’t be one of them, that much I knew. There’s nothing here for anyone with dreams, and I have days and nights full of them.
Oh, my. What a promising start.
“I’m Talor. What’s your name?” He ignored me again. Since I wanted an excuse to lean a little closer to him anyway, I arched to see his name on the application. “Oh, hi, Sage,” I said, pursing my lips like an idiot.
“You know, you don’t really look like a Sage.”
This is when this book lost me. Literally 5 pages in. I tried reading at least 10% before I officially put the book down in the “drovel” section of my “burn pile” and thought what in the world compelled me to purchase this monstrosity of a “romance” novel. The hero of this story is horny. And out to get a man. And sucking really hard at actually performing half decent conversation at least to my lowest bar which is 50 Shades of Gray * E.L. James.
Talor Gardin may be a princess, but her life is no fairy tale.
A year ago, her mother died and her father burned down their house. Now with a father in and out of a mental ward, she’s working a minimum wage job to finish her last semester of college. To make matters worse, she gets itchy every time a guy makes a move on her. The itch could be anything, really: a desire to escape her haunted hometown, a financial windfall, the name of some vampire…or all the above. Whatever the reason, she thinks the answers are written in the freckle constellations of her cute new coworker, Sage Talis.
Sage is the quiet, polite type with plenty of secrets – like fangs and a price on his head – and Talor can’t figure out what makes him so irresistible until she hears him sing. But when cryptic letters appear on her wrist, Talor is thrust into a world where fantastic creatures lurk just below the skin, strangers keep calling her a princess, and everything she’s been through is nothing compared to what’s coming.
I wish the writer used something better than a horny bimbo as the main character and actually used a bit of writing skill to explain why Talor is a princess, where are the undead, what’s happening with vampires.
