Book Blurb:

Dating the Prince of Darkness has its challenges…

Leila’s psychic abilities have been failing her, and now she isn’t sure what the future holds. If that weren’t enough, her lover, Vlad, has been acting distant. Though Leila is a mere mortal, she’s also a modern woman who refuses to accept the cold shoulder treatment forever–especially from the darkly handsome vampire who still won’t admit that he loves her.

Like choosing between eternal love and a loveless eternity…

Soon circumstances send Leila back to the carnival circuit, where tragedy strikes. And when she finds herself in the crosshairs of a killer who may be closer than she realizes, Leila must decide who to trust– the fiery vampire who arouses her passions like no other or the tortured knight who longs to be more than a friend? With danger stalking her every step of the way, all it takes is one wrong move to damn her for eternity.

My Thoughts:
Well, you know me, anything Jeaniene Frost writes is on my auto-buy and read list! Especially when we’re talking about her Night Prince series about Vlad, whose story I’ve been dying to read ever since he appeared on the Night Huntress series! And once more Frost delivers a wickedly amazing story that can’t disappoint any of her fans!

To be honest, I really don’t know what to say to describe one of Frost’s books that hasn’t already been said either from other reviewers or I haven’t already said in my past reviews of her books. The woman is pure genius, the way she writes her characters and the way she knows exactly how to deliver incredibly sexy and hot romance without even trying so hard like other authors do. Everything in her stories comes just naturally and never forced, whether we’re talking about her characters’ emotions or how an action scene goes down.

That being said and even though I really liked Twice Tempted I also had a couple of problems with it. And here let me just clarify that I still loved pretty much everything about this book and I simply couldn’t put it down but still, because we’re talking about a Jeaniene Frost book and my expectations are always pretty high, I couldn’t help but notice a couple of things. And the first one of those is the fact that this story seemed like something the author had already said in the past. It wasn’t original. Here, I said it. While reading Twice Tempted I found myself feeling like the author was a bit tired while writing this story or simply didn’t know how to make it move forward. And because of that the pace of the story was a bit uneven. There were parts were everything was going smoothly and other parts were the story dragged a bit. And during those parts is where I, for the first time while reading a book by this author, rolled my eyes a bit. I won’t elaborate on what made me roll my eyes, I hate spoilers, but you’ll know if you read this book.

Other than that, Vlad is delicious as always, Kira is as great a character as in the first book, the secondary characters are developed and have a voice of their own, to sum it up, other than what I said above we have a great book, written in a way only Frost can. On the bonus side, the action scenes were great something that I remember I had missed in the first book of the series.

All in all, Twice Tempted may be the first book by Jeaniene Frost I actually say something negative about in my review but still it’s a great book. And that is why even though I had a couple of problems I still give it an almost 5 star rating. Well, I also have a soft spot for that author but I keep it a secret. No one knows about it 😛

    Great review Anna, and I do understand the feeling that even though you don’t love everything about the story, you still love the book as a whole and grade it with an almost perfect score. I hope you will love the next book even more.
