Enraptured is the 4th installment in her vampire awakening series and the wait was definitely worth it. If you’ve read the other books in this series you know that Brenda’s vampire world is different and entrancing. I love the difference between born and bitten vampires, and how well written her characters are.
Ian is a college student who is only about having fun and hooking up with yet another woman. Paige is out for vengeance for her secretive past. When they’re thrown together sparks will fly, and not in a good way. Things are rough for Paige with her beliefs that all vampires are bad, so it’s hard for her to accept the things Ian is telling her. Ian is not ready to be a one woman man, but can’t stop thinking about being with Paige in every way.
This book starts out a little slow, and takes a few chapters to get used to the jumping of first person views. One paragraph you’ll be reading from Paige’s point of view, the next Ian’s and back again. Once you’re used to Brenda’s way of writing, it flows and you’re sucked into the story.
There are not many books that have kept me up late at night reading, unable to put the book down. This book draws you back into the world of vampires and makes you want to be pulled right in. The men of this series seriously take your breath away and are so yummy you just want to jump in and take over the spot of the heroine! I love the family dynamic, and that while this is a standalone book, it still gives you a glimpse into the lives of the previous couples.
The path that Ian and Paige take in this book makes you feel like you’re right there with them, you’ll laugh out loud, you’ll smile and you’ll be at the edge of your seat waiting for the next exciting sentence! New characters are introduced and the world of born vampires gets a little clearer.
The end of the book was just perfect, and I can’t wait to see who Brenda writes about next!
