Two strangers—one warm and human, the other deadly and craving—become pawns in an all-out vampire war as this series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Nightwalkers saga heats up.
As an energy vampire, Halo enjoys the chase for human blood—if it’s pure and consensual. But Halo goes from hunter to hunted when he is knocked unconscious and taken hostage by vicious sycophants. As he comes to, he realizes that he’s naked, starving, and trapped in a sealed room. With him is a deliciously human female, tempting him to feed—except her blood is heady with the scent of poisonous drugs. Never has nourishment been so near, yet so far . . . and it’s all part of the sycophants’ sick game.
The last thing Felice Mendoza remembers is everything going black. She awakens stripped, drugged, exposed, and alone—with a vampire. Halo is at once savage and tender, terrifying and alluring. Felice senses that her only chance to escape depends upon his survival. Given the choice between Halo and his enemies, Felice surrenders to his ravenous hunger. It’s a calculated risk—and a delirious pleasure. As Felice is ushered into a world as dangerous as it is desirable, their fight for deliverance is only the beginning.
Hunger by Jacquelyn Frank
Halo lives his life full tilt with a ton of women in his wake. When he is captured he is forced to share his captivity with Felice, a person who has made some really bad love connections.
Their captors want to poison Halo with “tainted” energy from Felice so that is why they are imprisoned naked together. Damaged souls, imprisoned and naked…can it get any worse?
Hunger has a great premise but after reading this, the second book in this series, I’m not thinking this series is for me. Like I said, the premise is there but zero reader connection because I just couldn’t buy into the situation(s) presented with a slow progression as well. Overall, it just fell flat, somewhere in between an Okay to kind of like it for me so I’m giving it 2.5.
I received this ARC copy of Hunger from Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept. This is my honest and voluntary review. Hunger is set for publication August 8, 2017.
