Meh, this book just didn’t do it for me. I love Lynsay Sands’ Argeneau series and it seemed as though this book was lacking what they all seem to have – and I’m not talking about the vampires.

I think that it was because everything was incredibly rushed. Now, I’m not sure if that was because scenes were missing from my copy – Goodreads states that the book was over 300 pages and my copy was just a little over 200 – or what, but it was all ‘boom, boom, boom, ending’ with this one. It was like you never got a chance to catch your breath until after you were finished reading the very last page.

However, the hanky panky in this book was great and I did enjoy the slight mystery that the plot was shrouded in. The classic mistake of identity was well done and very fun to read.

In the end, though, this just wasn’t fully it – it was missing the je ne sais quois. All the pieces were there but it still seemed as though something was absent. It is a fun, short read that promises the typical Lynsay Sands smut-tastic romance and I would recommend it if you’re looking for a spring break beach read.

Many thanks to netGalley and Avon for allowing me the chance to read this e-book edition.
