I admit that I chose this book because the idea of a vamp with er, um performance problems caught my attention not to mention the setting was one of my favorite towns. The main characters were such polar opposites on the surface too with Samson being a vampire who owned a multi-million dollar security business and Delilah being a forensic accountant (yes, Samson and Delilah as in the two Biblical characters- haha).
The plot revolved around Samson and Delilah’s growing, but naturally rocky relationship and also the danger Delilah was in because someone was defrauding the company and had no desire to get caught. Both Samson and Delilah have pasts that influence the present. Samson has been betrayed by a lover who was only after his money and Delilah feels the need to maintain cool, calm control because of an incident from her past. These things make them both fight their attraction and pull away from each other. Then there is the elephant in the room- the ticking time bomb of Samson being vampire and Delilah being human and ignorant of vampires truly existing.
I enjoyed several elements. Samson and Delilah were combustible together and their passion and playfulness occupies much of the book. There was also the conspiracy issue with shadowy persons working against the pair of them which added some danger and intrigue. There were plot secrets that I worked out easily, but there was one or two that took me by surprise. I also found Samson’s host of friends a great addition. I look forward to continuing the series and reading their stories.
If you like hot and steamy with a dash of intrigue, this read is for you.
