Ciara is a con artist who has decided to buy a pipe working "honorably." It therefore requires an interview at a radio station.
There she discovers that the leaders of the night are nothing other than vampires, and the station is threatened with a takeover that will all at risk.
So then ... In short, I was not blown away by the story, yet friendly.
I liked that the heroine is, for once, instead of a small white turkey and innocent as she is accustomed. And most importantly, she does not jump into the arms of vampires, as can be seen in the southern community, for example.
Here, Ciara is far from innocent and honest heroine. This is a con artist who takes pleasure in plucking her pigeons, who hates pain and absolutely no wish to be bitten! Yay! Finally the change in the world of bit-bed!
I also liked how the author sees the vampires. No magic, just sucking blood with human emotions. Vampires do not live forever. Have such a profound bond with their years of their origin they must be able to continue to "live" in order not to end up like zombies.
After that, I admit that the story seemed simplistic. Woah, in 3 seconds, Ciara is a way to save the station redemption. "Sway your that they are vampires who are in control" and presto, it's glory!
And then the story with the very old vampire not happy, the father of Ciara returning and leaves, this has not brought me to the point of being glued to the story and forget the weaknesses of the story suffering, in my opinion, many lengths made my reading tedious.
Maybe my disappointment it is great because I had read so many good things about this book that I expected better?
Let's say I found the first half and the second longuette too fast and rhythmic.
For the first part, the author focuses on Ciara, the history of radio, the beginning of the romance between Shane and Ciara, and rather good start of the new advertising campaign for the station.
But jostling at that time. In a few pages, Ciara is removed, kidnapped, raped, saved again in a scam, then abandoned by her father before falling into the arms of Shane!
Everything could have been much better dispatched in the book, by removing some of the descriptions or redundancy.
I would conclude by saying that I am neither disappointed nor thrilled with this first volume. It remains a good read without headaches, more in the style chick-lit vampire bit that actually reads.
I expect the second volume to get a clearer idea of the series and whether I would continue.
