I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Holly Ryan. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Betraying him might save her life...but at risk of losing him forever.

Belle Harrison, vampire slayer, would give anything for a simple night of patrolling on her own damn terms. But the graveyard is crawling with creeps with hidden agendas. Not to mention the dark unknown that wants to take her out.

And we’re not talking dates here, people.

Good thing Belle has three panty-melting vampires to help her.

Except one of her guys has a past that’s catching up with him. Violently. Belle’s fairly certain she can save him. But if she betrays him, she’ll gain a wealth of knowledge that could help her survive the dark unknown.

A lot is at stake, including everything that makes her the slayer she is, and it just plain sucks.

My Thoughts:

I still don't feel that the term Reverse Harem fits with this series. It continues the adventures of Belle Harrison but this time we get to see more of her relationship with three men. The story continues right where the first book left off and builds on the relationship of the four of them. We also get to see how those men came to be. Part of that previous life has filtered into what Belle does. 

This was my second listen for both the author and the narrator. Our author gave me a second reminder of what I love about the paranormal romance genre. The difference from the first book was that I didn't want to be multitasking while getting to know more about these two women and the characters their helping get to know. Ms. Ryan still feeds my love for the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series and I've gotten used to Ms. Schwairy telling me a good story. Still thinking that I need to do a relisten around Halloweentime - especially when you think about where Belle's job takes her. What better time to get up close and personal with the unexplained? 

I'm still finding the story too short - but that's a good thing. The good news is that I'm finding myself getting hooked on this series. The sound issues I had in the first book didn't seem to make an appearance here so it made it much easier to listen instead of wondering when I was going to hear something I shouldn't. But there's a sadness to my story. I see that there are more books to Belle's adventures but I'm not seeing anymore audiobooks but I do see books and that's where the sadness comes in. The good news to my story is that Ms. Ryan does have other books in the series that I can read as opposed to listening to. And that won't stop me for watching out for more audiobooks either.

Holly Ryan is a pen name for a USA Today bestselling author who one day said, “Screw it. I’m gonna write books with some serious sizzle.” She’s fueled by wine, which is where the idea probably came from.
