'I didn’t get it at first, but when he pointed the gun at me, the fog of shock lifted real damn fast. I was a moment shy of there being a “clean-up on aisle six” situation. “Well that was certainly unexpected.” It just kinda came out. My brain had clearly lost all communication with my mouth.'Kayel just wants to pay her bills, do her homework and get through law school- which is why she has her (secret) job as a phone sex operator. Sure, that is not something she wants to brag about, but she has her clients, does her (at times super awkward) job and that is all that matters. When she overhears what appears to be a murder of one of her long time clients over the phone, she does what every law abiding future lawyer would- she calls the police. She could have no idea that she was inserting herself into a world she had no idea about, with vampires and politics and a hidden agenda she now finds herself part of.
"Oh holy hell, my mother was going to kill me. Not like stabby-stabby in the heart. Like guilt trip me to death kind of kill me."I put on genre that this could be considered romance, which it sorta is but not in the sense that a romance book is romance (if that makes any sense). There was attraction, a hint of a relationship building, a whole lot of lust and love. But that in no way was the point of the book, it was just a little side note that I appreciated (I do enjoy a little love in all my books!). But, because this is not a happy little love story, there is not really a Happily ever after (which I wanted but would have been super unrealistic with these doom and gloomers).
