Book: Twice Tempted (Night Prince #2) by Jeaniene Frost
Genre: PRN (paranormal romance with vampire, ghouls,...)
Published year: 2013
Rating: 3 out of 5 (***)
The 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 Review:
*3,5 stars*

I really enjoyed this book but I prefered the first, mainly because in this one Vlad lost a bit of his edge and even though the story was action packed and fast paced, Leila had too many near dead experiences (I didn’t count them, but I think she almost died 5 or 6 times), also the book had some inconsistencies and in my opinion lacked of character development.

It’s beautiful to see a strong, dark, unyielding alpha hero fall for his woman, the problem is that here all of a sudden Vlad becomes all bark and no bite.

And Leila one day is so in love with Vlad that she is all needy and whiny, but the next she has no problem to believe that the man she loves so much it hurts could be capable of doing something as cowardly as the bomb business? Then in a heart beat she jumps again into the relationship. Too many changes of heart, too quickly. And all the while she keeps saying that she is seeing and loving the true Vlad not some romanticized idea of him.

As for Maximus,

So yes, I would have loved less inconsistencies and more character developpment. I also found that

part was rushed. That being said, the book was a quick read and the tension between Vlad and Leila was hot.
