Simone packs a wallop into two short chapters in this excellent paranormal romance story. It appears pretty self-explanatory on the surface: vampire and priest meet, and sexy shenanigans ensue. However, Simone puts her own twist on how vampires work, the priest is not quite a priest, and the shenanigans are surprisingly humorous and sweet (along with being incredibly sexy).
Bastien and Aaron are well developed in the short time they have on the page, but I already feel like I know so much about them. At the same time, I’d be more than willing to meet them again for a much longer work. I hope this is a world Simone is preparing to explore further in the future, and I’d happily be invested if she does.
Fans of this author should not miss this short, delicious treat, and new readers interested in exploring her work will get a fantastic taste of her writing style and ability.
(Also, I almost choked to death on dinner when I got to a certain line in this story. You’ll know it when you get there. Read safely, friends.)
