This book was tiresome to say the least. It took me a while to get into and when I did it made me irritable. First and foremost, how many times do you have to give descriptions of the main players in the story. At this point it's understood that Riley's surrogate grandparents are black and to repeat that or the "flawless" features of the vampires is just rundown. Vocabulary was very lacking with the main characters foul mouth and the constant use of "god" this Or that. Like I get that she is supposedly "badass" but does that include being dumb? Riley is constantly having her mind invaded which was funny in the beginning but entirely a sore point towards the end of the book. On top of that the so called love scenes are mimics of each other which I skimmed after a while. It would be nice to have one day of a normal date between Eli and Riley. Yes, I get the fact that they have to fight the newlings but at the same time in the past paranormal so called romance books that I've read there was always room to just be casual. Riley is sought out by every male character in this book and the author downplays the other females in the book to make it seem like Riley is the only beautiful woman in all of Savannah. Let's still be realistic here. The only reason I give this a three stars is because of the matches in the arena where Riley, stood up for herself and actually fought, encountered the newlings before all hell broke loose. Victorian was another character that I liked. The way Riley see the majority of the male vampires makes it seem like she finds all of them attractive. Plus she constantly apologizing to Eli for things that are out of her control for a 200 year old vampire he needs to grow up already. At the end of the book I had a big headache.
