Genre- Adult Paranormal Romance
Daphne Foster is a substitute teacher stuck in an English class, waiting for that dreaded parent-teacher conference. With much preparation and anxiety, she encounters the unforgettable Charlie Cross. His charm and good looks, win her over but rumors of his involvement with organized crime make his continued disappearances disturbing.
In walks Heathcliff Vanderpool, creating a love triangle of unusual sorts. Unknown to Daphne, Heathcliff and Charlie are old friends: Older than she could have imagined. With Charlie away on business, Daphne and Heathcliff discover a passion between them lying beneath the surface. As their souls link, pulling away from Charlie becomes next to impossible. Will his involvement in organized crime consume them both before she’s able to get free? When you become “linked,” the choice may not be your own.
Let me see, where to start? This book disturbed me a bit, tickled me in some parts and confused me in others. As a whole I liked the book and cannot wait to dive into the next one. I love the idea of linked, so romantic and Cliff and Daphne so perfect for each other. I flat out dislike Charlie! Vampires indeed work well in the Mafia world being able to keep things steady in their organizations for years beyond years. Ms. Serrano tackled a huge subject here, and in the end I feel it rushed things a bit while I wanted to know more about some of the other characters. I hold the hope that the second book will thrill me to no end though! So, I rated this book a 4 because I did enjoy reading it and it did surprise me from time to time. I want to thank Judy Serrano for allowing me to read and review her book, I cannot wait to see where she goes from here.
