Their first meeting is sweet and cute but much too short. Camille returns tot he U.S. and moves to Louisiana to start a new life. Gavin comes back into her life by chance and a very sweet contemporary romance seems to be taking place. Out of nowhere --- the sweet contemporary romance turns into a gritty paranormal romance. We soon discover some of Camille's very good friends are vampires. And it seems they all are in a lot of trouble. The first half of the book was great. I felt like the development between Camille and Gavin was sincere and not too rushed. I loved the introduction of vampires closer to the end of the story but I felt that when Camille's friends are trying to explain everything to her that things got a little confusing for me. I'm hoping that more of this vampire background will be cleared up in the later installments. I'm very happy with this read and will likely keep up with the series once the next book is released.
