Review: Twice Bitten – Chloe Neill

Merit, Chicago’s newest vampire, is learning how to play well with others. Other supernaturals, that is. Shapeshifters from across the country are convening in the Windy City, and as a gesture of peace, Master Vampire Ethan Sullivan has offered their leader a very special bodyguard: Merit. Merit is supposed to protect the Alpha, Gabriel Keene—and to spy for the vamps while she’s at it. Oh, and luckily Ethan’s offering some steamy, one-on-one combat training sessions to help her prepare for the mission. 

Merit must accept the assignment, even though she knows that she’ll probably regret it. And she’s not wrong. Someone is gunning for Gabriel Keene, and Merit soon finds herself in the line of fire. She’ll need all the help she can get to track down the would-be assassin, but everywhere she turns, there are rising tensions between supernaturals—not least between her and a certain green-eyed, centuries old master vampire.
My thoughts:
I am going to make this short because everything I hoped this series would be fell apart in this book and right now I am just annoyed for having read it.
I am annoyed at Ethan because he is an arrogant jerk and I can’t see why Merit likes him, cos he is hot? Aye, but he is a jerk and I want to kick him in the crutch. I am annoyed at Merit because she no longer felt kick-ass, she felt weak and she should have known better. I am annoyed at them together because I honestly could not feel the attraction. They like each other a lot..yes but I no longer feel it.
I am annoyed at the tone too, I should be not be. I like it light, but right now it felt like her saying it is a vampire frat house just is too true. No one is acting like adults anymore, they are kids in one big house. It even felt a bit too YA.
As you can see I was not that happy about this book, and still the writing was so much better than other books that have gotten a higher grade from me. But the difference is that I enjoyed those books, while here the word for the day is annoyed and I am sad. If I can’t respect the characters I got nothing left.
Conclusion:
*sad reader*
———————————
Happy New YEAR I wish you all a great new year and many more good books to read. I am also grateful for all the new bloggers I have met this year, and the old ones that have gotten to know better. My blog would be nothing without you all 😀

    I'm sorry you didn't like this one. I didn't get the YA vibe until Drink Deep, but I see where you are coming from. I'm sorry you didn't like Ethan. ): He was a favorite book boyfriend of mine. (I like heroes who are a bit jerkish. I have issues, lol.)

  8. Blodeuedd says:

    BuckyLol, well each to each own. I on the other hand like brutish alpha male who say mine mine mine! While in reality I would kick their asses to kingdom comeBut I am glad someone else felt the YA vibe too, even if later
