Vampires and Witches and Myths, oh my!
Toni is a young doctor with a past she can't remember and a deadly reason for forgetting it.
Ben is a nurse who has his own tragic past and transfers hospitals after an act of heroism forces his secluded life public.
Ben can’t believe his eyes when he meets Toni, she has an uncanny resemblance to an old friend of his, and Toni can’t help but find Ben irresistible.
Enter Kevin, Toni’s sexy but arrogant Ex. Kevin’s jealousy of Ben blinds him from his main objective, Toni.
A dangerous secret is revealed and a magic spell seems to be a quick remedy, but the witch that helps has a little more than magic up her sleeve…
The book wasn't very long, so that lent to the story evolving fairly quickly. Within a matter of days, Toni is attracted to, and has started having feels for, Ben. I know that's happened to all of us at one point in our lives, but the depth of her feelings seems to have developed extremely fast, even for a novella.
Ben is hiding several major secrets from Toni. Secrets concerning a dead girlfriend, a vampire, and a witch. Toni doesn't believe in vampires ... even though Ben's always cold, drinks "Bloody Marys" instead of eating food for a meal, works at night, and seems to have sun-eliminating shades on all of his windows. Ben also seems a little sneaky in that he's made Toni forget what he's asked her on two different occasions. So, can he really be trusted?
Then there's Toni. She's being manipulated and used by more people than she even knows. I kind of feel sorry for her but, then again, I don't. It's difficult for me to pinpoint one specific characteristic, but Toni feels a little naive to me.
Overall, I did enjoy this book and would consider reading it again.
As a side note: On Amazon, it shows that this book has been recently re-edited. I'm glad because I almost stopped reading this book after Chapter 1 due to all of the editing issues that were missed.
