It’s one thing to date a single father with emotional baggage…but quite another to date one who’s dead.
It’s only because of my work as a paranormal investigator that I, Libby Monroe, end up in a town like Broken Heart, Oklahoma, chasing down bizarre rumors of strange goings-on–and finding vampires, lycanthropes, and zombies. Oh, my!
I never expected to fall in lust, but sexy vampire Ralph Genessa is too irresistable. The fact that he’s the loving father of twin boys drives the nail into my coffin and wins my undying love. And you know what they say: Home is where the heart is. Only this town is being torn in two by a war between the undead, and I may be the only thing that can hold Broken Heart together.
This one gets a meh from me. While it wasn’t horrible, it did fail to keep my attention like the previous books in this series. Libby Monroe finds herself in Broken Heart as a paranormal investigator. When she happens upon a vampire in a cemetery, mayhem ensues, and Libby is turned into a dragon. Not sure what to do with Libby, the residents of Broken Heart try to keep her in town to learn more about her new nature. Unfortunately there is someone after her new found power, who’ll stop at nothing to obtain it.
Although I absolutely adore Broken Heart and it’s paranormal residents, I wasn’t really feeling this installment. Libby, though cute and sweet, just really didn’t impress me and I found her quite boring compared to the other heroines of this series. She was pretty insecure and a bit immature at times. I also found her to be focused on the wrong things at the wrong times.
I did like Ralph, Libby’s love interest, but there wasn’t enough of him. Besides the previous characters, Ralph was the most interesting in the book, but for a hero, his part was limited in my opinion. I think the author could have utilized him more. Ralph was sweet and sensitive. Not the typical alpha male hero, but his appeal was subtle. I loved the affection he had for his twin boys, and how he opened himself to Libby.
Overall, it was alright. Certainly not as riveting as past books, but I’ll continue on with this series nonetheless.
