Hannah Grey will do anything to escape the tortured memories haunting her. Every breath brings back the pain, the fear and the unbearable knowledge that she’ll never be the once-perfect girl everyone thought her to be. When the self-destructive fog of drugs, alcohol and meaningless sex starts to clear, Dante, a lion shifter sexier than sin itself, emerges through the darkness ready to rescue her for the second time in so many weeks.*Contains spoilers from DARK CRAVINGS*
In the safety of Dante’s embrace, Hannah allows herself to become the woman she’s always wanted to be—smart, sexy, capable and empowered. His every touch electrifies. His hot, hungry kisses set her senses ablaze. As Dante masters her body, Hannah finally finds the strength to master her fears.
Perfection shatters as a mysterious vampire escalates from anonymous phone calls to violent encounters. When Hannah’s enemies unite, placing both her and Dante in mortal peril, it’s going to take all of her newfound strength to face the coming darkness and save the man she loves.
After her torture at the hands of the old vampire queen, Hannah would do anything to escape the memories of what happened to her. This leads her on a path to drugs, alcohol and sex. No matter what she throws at herself the handsome Dante is always there to pick her up. When she is targeted by a deranged Vampire hell bent on turning her into his new queen Dante is once a gain there to keep her safe.
We were introduced to both Hannah and Dante in book 1 of the Dark series. We know what Hannah went through and we watched a bit of the bond form between the two after the events that occurred. When I saw that book 2 would be about these two I was a little bummed because I really wanted more Ella and Micah, but after reading DARK INNOCENCE I was left glad I was able to watch their story together begin.
The romance between the two was fast and furious. The scenes were steamy and full of feeling. We got to watch Hannah come out of her shell of despair and we learned about who Dante really is. Although the book was focused on them we still got a few scenes with Ella and Micah.
Another fast paced, easy flowing story with plenty of romance and danger from Madeline Pryce. It was really nice getting to know Hannah and Dante and I look forward to seeing them in the next book, even if they aren't the main characters.
I gave it 4/5 stars
