Title: Twice Tempted
Author: Jeaniene Frost
Series: Night Prince, #2
Release Date: March 26, 2012
Dating the Prince of Darkness has its challenges...
Leila's psychic abilities have been failing her, and now she isn't sure what the future holds. If that weren't enough, her lover, Vlad, has been acting distant. Though Leila is a mere mortal, she's also a modern woman who refuses to accept the cold shoulder treatment forever–especially from the darkly handsome vampire who still won't admit that he loves her.
Like choosing between eternal love and a loveless eternity...
Soon circumstances send Leila back to the carnival circuit, where tragedy strikes. And when she finds herself in the crosshairs of a killer who may be closer than she realizes, Leila must decide who to trust– the fiery vampire who arouses her passions like no other or the tortured knight who longs to be more than a friend? With danger stalking her every step of the way, all it takes is one wrong move to damn her for eternity.
“I never turned any of my previous lovers because I didn’t want them to feel how little I cared. You I loved, yet you left me because I wouldn’t verbalize my emotions. That will probably happen again, but if you could feel what you mean to me, Leila” —his voice deepened— “words wouldn’t matter.”
I absolutely LOVED Twice Tempted. I loved it even more than the first in the Night Prince Series, Once Burned. I think I just liked the plot more this time and I enjoyed it 10X MORE!. I am at this point wishing Mencheres & Spade had a second book! You'll quickly become addicted to Vlad and totally glad that you are!
“Vlad made a sound too harsh to be a growl. "You won't be satisfied until you've brought me to my knees, is that it?" "Why not?" It shot out of me with all the recklessness of my still-broken heart. "You brought me to mine.”
Vlad was amazing as usual and I just love that man! I love my Alpha men the most for the most swoon worthy quotes the sputter from their mouths and I seen Vlad in a different light in this book. He truly shows that he ultimately cares and loves Leila. I was like so what if those three little words don't pop out of Vlad's mouth, how can she not know that he loves and cares for her. I believe actions can show you better than words sometimes. But I understand Leila wanting more.
I let out a scoff. “I’m not trying to fight his enemies for him.” “In his eyes you are, and worse, you’re ready to die to do it.”
Leila mostly annoyed me in this book and I think she did a little bit in the last book as well, I just can't remember. She's human and she puts herself in danger all the time. There were few times where she could've avoided the danger, but she does it anyway. I know it the way of many heroines, but it just bothered me more with her. Maybe because she seemed so needy and stubborn at times that I kind of became fed up with it all.
“You’ve never had angry sex. I’m about to show you what you’ve been missing.”
Vlad and Leila as a couple, OMFG! Spark Fly! I loved everything! Things happened in TWICE TEMPTED that I didn't even think were going to happen in this book or possibly not at all. Leila being kidnapped again? Ooooohhhh! BIG SHOCKER! I mean, really! She was kidnapped?! GASP! Vlad offered Leila a lot of things in this book that should make her feel like his queen! And we got to see Vlad and his reasoning for the one thing Leila wants from his lips.
“Fourteen hundred and thirty-one.” I blinked. “What’s that?” “The year I was born, which is not, as you’ll note, yesterday.” I stifled a groan. Busted already.
TWICE TEMPTED ended like out of nowhere and I really think that is something Jeaniene Frost NEEDS to work on. Her endings of her books. Possibly include an Epilogue, I don't know. It was like where's the rest?! Anyway, I'm happy because at the end includes an excerpt for the next Cat and Bones book, SQWEEEEEE! And I'm freaking excited!
“Yeah, well, Bones and I had a couple months of relative quiet. Guess it’s time to liven things up again.”
