“Jesus,” Dante interjected when the heavy quiet in the vehicle seemed endless. “All this touchy feely is making me itchy to kill something. How about we quit jerking each other off and go blow the roof off this mutha?”

Yet another Erotic/Adventure Vampire book has graced my shelf this weekend. Kiss of Midnight has a fast paced plot that keeps the reader hooked until the end. I finished it in a day, although I did have to take a break here and there.
As far as Erotic stories go, this book delivered what was to be expected. It had several interesting plot points, but overall was seemingly pretty predictable.
If I’m being honest, I wish there was more Character Development. Like, a lot more. The characters seemed almost…dry. They said and did all the right things, but there wasn’t much of an emotional spark behind any of it. This could have been due to the amount of time spent in the main Character’s head, but even then the reader was told more than shown how she/he was feeling.
There were times that what the Characters did/said just didn’t seem practical.
There was also very little relationship development within the story. The secondary characters were exactly that; secondary, with even less development than the already lacking main characters.
There were plot holes that nagged at me throughout the story. Even after finishing it I had to ask myself, huh?
But with all that being said, I really did enjoy this book. I haven’t yet decided if I’m going to continue the series in hopes of the Character Development improving. I most likely will, since I’ve started it, but I wont be able to get through 11 other books without some improvement.
Overall Rating: 3.0
A little less than the average, strictly because I am such a junkie for Character Development and emotional angst. It could have easily been a 4.0 if it weren’t for my personal preferences.
