Caught between two vampires, Connie is torn between Rurik, the one she loves and Tane, the one she’d love to stake.Thoughts on Catch: It's been a while since I read book 1 in this series. That said, I had no problems jumping back into this world and all the craziness Connie was immersed in. And, yes, despite having the hunky Rurik to protect her, Connie is once again in the middle of some seriously dangerous shenanigans.
Hunger burns in Connie Bences’ soul--she craves the blood of her vampire lover, Rurik, but it’s not satisfying her needs anymore. It’s driving her insane. Desperate to find help, Rurik brings her to Rio De Janeiro, where Tane rules the vampire nation.
The back-stabbing vampire almost killed her and Rurik when they’d first met, then used them to obtain his crown. She would rather stake him, but the small drop of Nosferatu blood he’d forced her to drink in Budapest is blooming into a bond, one which ties her life to his. One he won’t hesitate to manipulate.
He admits to binding her so Rurik would have to remain at his side, but their timing couldn’t be any worse. The betrayer finds himself betrayed. Tane’s rule is in upheaval and he’s forced to place his trust in two people who owe him no allegiance—her and Rurik. In the middle of a power struggle, Connie fights to keep her lover, but didn’t plan on Tane slipping into her heart.
I wasn't a huge fan of Tane in the first book. Learning he'd fed Connie his blood to tie Rurik to him through her didn't change my opinion of him. Then he started to show another side. And, dangit, the guy started to grow on me. It's hard to hold a grudge against someone trying to do his best to keep his people together while attempting to carve out a little happiness for himself.
I'm not going to lie, the potential for a threesome might have swayed me in his direction, too. Because nothing says FUN like two vamps giving it to a girl.
Fast paced with just the right amount of gore and plenty of sexy times. Book 3 looks verrrrry interesting.
