Blurb: “His name is Salvatore Rossi. He’s a vampire. And he’s my true mate.”
By not relying on anyone except himself, Salvatore Rossi escaped a dead-end existence and reached the height of corporate success. But just when he has everything he always wanted, fate throws Salvatore a challenge he can’t solve alone and a young wolf shifter comes to his rescue.
Since childhood, Yoram Smith’s family was certain he would grow to become Alpha and save their beloved pack from its slow demise. When the time comes for a new leader, Yoram is forced to juggle his duty to care for a splintering pack with his duty to care for an absent mate, and his own strength suffers.
Being turned into a vampire didn’t alter Salvatore’s life philosophy: if you don’t rely on anyone, nobody can let you down. But when the boy who saved his life becomes a man who needs his help, the icy vampire must find his humanity.
Review: I reviewed the ebook on May 19, 2017 here.
I think I made a major mistake thinking this story would be better in audio format. I struggled heavily with Salvatore and it was just made that much worse by actually hearing it, as opposed to reading it in black and white. Yorry was simply amazing. He broke my heart at first, but he grew into a forgiving, strong alpha and I can’t imagine a kinder and more decent shifter on the planet. He deserved so much more than he got.
Charlie David did a good job performing the story, for the most part, but it was a difficult story for any narrator and I understand that. There are times when I love both the book and audio, and then there are times when one is superior to the other. In this case, the audio did not work for me, and it took me forever to get through it. But I persevered because I knew it got better. I love the series for the most part, and though this one ends on a sweet note, it was just not my cuppa for a bit too long, and that made for a difficult journey.
Overall Impression: It was good!
