Technically, this book should score a 3.5, but wonderful Smashword doesn't believe in halfsies!
So meet Aurora, a vampire who is an artist- a painter to be exact- who is a bit rebellious. She one night is looking for her next meal (i.e., blood), when she meets Trey - A rock star-, and instead of making him dinner, she starts dating him. In the process of trying to hide this from the other vamps and trying to keep her vamp secret from Trey, you get to see how secrets can lead to trouble... Sometimes more than you can bite.
When I started reading it, I was instantly draw to Aurora... I mean, who doesn't love a painting vampire (giving a point to show they have a soul). I like how Ms. Jensen creates her own type of vampire. They can go into the sun (No they do not sparkle!), garlic isn't a problem, and yes they have special talents (but those are only available when the moon is out at night). Trey is a down to earth rock star (that seems a bit unbelievable compared to the vampires :P), and he instantly falls for Aurora. For him it was love at first sight, though they both didn't really know it. Thankfully, it wasn't made as an easy romance, but it gave a lot of great potential for what was coming towards the end.
The movement of the first half of the book is like a quick dance, you are constantly trying to follow the music, the movement of the book. It is from to POV, which alternates depending on what is going on.
As a whole, this book was very good. Unfortunately for me it either needed to end when she revealed her vampirism or it need to have a clean conclusion. It kind of left me hanging, and I hate books that leave me hanging. It is a good book, and I think if you like music, vampires, and painting, this book might be right up your alley.
