What I love about this story is that, besides the paranormal aspect, it follows a normal problem in our society. Paige is a wife and a mother who takes a trip to Japan for business. Two years prior, Paige's husband cheated on her with another woman. In the hopes to save her marriage, she forgave him for his indiscretion so they could go on with there lives.
Little did she know that while in Japan, she meets a hot gorgeous guy named Casey. Is this starting to go down the road all of us women dream about?? I think it might! So as I read on, I find out that Casey is not only gorgeous, he is so super sweet. Casey begins to fall in love with her and show her the attention she isn't getting at home. She can't avoid his advances for long because of feelings she is feeling that she hasn't felt in such a long time.
Then something weird begins to happen. Paige begins having nightmares about Casey and her friend Rosa being vampires. She lets the dreams roll off her back; but she is startled when her husband shows up in Japan. She soon realizes something strange is going on. What she finds out is astounding! She finds herself in the middle of a feud between two vampire clans. Paige has been chosen to be turned into a vampire! But she has a choice to make; she has to decide between Casey and her husband of which one of the two will turn her into a vampire. If she picks her husband to turn her then Casey will die. Who will she chose? Will she pick Casey and let him die? Will she chose her husband to try and save her marriage?
I really like the way Marylynn has written this book. Most romance novels I have read really focus on the "romance" portion of the book and not the lead up or the after of the plot. There is a maturity in the writing style that made this book very enjoyable. I couldn't put this book down once I began to read it. It flowed really well and was very imaginative. 4 out of 5 stars.
