Love Me Deadly by Alycia Linwood
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book put a unique spin on hunter/vampire lore, throwing in a mystery to keep the pages turning. The mystery was solid enough that I didn’t solve it until the characters did.
Destiny is night owl who begins the story at a club with her BFF. A simple enough party for some famous model, Enrique, turns into a challenge for the vampire/model. Consent, while clarified between the two of them later, is super muddy at this point, and was not something I enjoyed. Circumstances, however, force Destiny to end up being his first vampire made. We get to watch Destiny come to grips with her new reality, filled with a lot of politics that dampened the enjoyment of living forever.
Nat, a bartender she met at the same important party, ends up being on the opposite side of the conflict Destiny finds herself in. Together, however, they really try to do the Romeo/Juliet thing. I can see a love triangle in her future, but we don’t get that delivered just yet. The ending to this book wrapped up most everything, and I’m happy to leave it that way.
