Paranormal Romance Review: Twice Tempted by Jeaniene Frost

Twice Tempted by Jeaniene Frost (Night Prince #2)


bought

Synopsis from Goodreads
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.

This was absolutely fabulous and utterly delicious! What a contrast with Once Burned, which for me just fell flat when I read it last year.



Both Leila and Vlad grew as characters and stepped away from stereotyped to death paranormal romance hero and heroine. There was definitely a kick to both of them and at times a sincerity that took my breath away.

Also, this book was non-stop action from the page one and involved some seriously wicked ass-kicking and mostly cartoonish amount of bloodshed.

Both Leila and Vlad were glorious, very strong-willed and very much set in their ways. Vlad believed that he should have had her without love declarations, but Leila would have had none of it. I had so much fun with their tug of war. Add to this a traitor among Dracula's people, an unseen new enemy and a very annoyed father of your girlfriend, and Houston, we've got problems.

Hopefully, I avoided all sorts of spoilers. I really didn't want to ruin your fun! Highly recommended.

После первой книги серии, которая меня ну совершенно разочаровала, к своему удивлению читала я Вдвойне Искушённых с огромным удовольствием.

Жанин конечно умничка! Ей удалось выровнять главных героев и наконец отойти от постоянных клише паранормала, и выдать что-то задорное и сыпящее искорками.

Оба Влад и Лейла выросли как персонажи и в то же время, их взаимное упрямство переросло в какую-то войну Роз пока один из них наконец-то не получит то, что хочет от другого.

Что очень радует, экшн в этой книге не останавливается ни на минуту, скучать времени нет и иногда от искренности персонажей перехватывает дыхание.

Прошу прощение за скупое ревью, но совсем не хочу спойлерить книгу и портить вам настроение. Читайте обязательно!

You know I am so far behind with this world - let alone this series!! I've only read the first Night Huntress book so as far as I'm concerned Cat and Bones are still apart! :-)

I picked this one up as soon as it released. Love Jeaniene's books! It was really good, though I'm the opposite of you and liked the first one a bit better. The romance elements were awesome in this one (that push-pull between Vlad and Leila), but the plot/villain didn't quite work for me.

I'm so behind for the spin off of this series, I confess I haven't read any, I need to start to do so.

Book 1 fell flat and you still gave it a go? I am not sure I would have been able to

I was totally unsure about this because I was disappointed in Once Burned, but since you were too and you ended up liking this one anyway, I'll read it after all.
great review¨!

I just grabbed book one and this, I do love Vlad and your review has me so excited. Hey, tell me again when you are going away, I am working on that guest post.

Mel, that's alright. I think you can easily read a spin off without revealing much of Cat and Bones :)

Mistressofthedarkpath, I've seen people saying that. I think because it's such a mix of PNR and UF, depending on what you like more, you'll enjoy 1st or second book more.

D., I know you'd enjoy it. ;) And you're only behind on 1 book - Once Burned.

Blodeuedd, yeah, but I have been reading Jeaniene for a long time and some of her books are better than the others.

Thanks, Maja! I know how you felt. Believe me, book #2 is better. :)

Kimba, yay! Hope you enjoy it!

Okay you've convinced me! I thought Once Burned was a bit okish so I'm really glad to hear Twice Tempted is so much better. Thanks for the non spoilery review.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
