summary Once Burned 108 ☆ She's a mortal with dark powersAfter a tragic accident scarred her body and destroyed her dreams Leila never imagined that the worst was still to come terrifying powers that let her channel electricity and learn a person's darkest secrets through a single touch Leila is doomed to a life of solitudeuntil creatures of the night kidnap her for Vampires in existence but his enemies have found a new weapon against him a beautiful mortal with powers to match his own When Vlad and Leila meet however passion ignites between them threatening to consume them both It will take everything that they are to stop an enemy intent on bringing them down in flam. At least that's what Jeaniene Frost wants us to believe If I felt nothing for you than lust Maximus would be on that pole for a week and you my lovely interloper would not be here with me nowHardly the words you'd find on a Hallmark card but they caused a glow of happiness nonetheless35 stars Okay so I might be exaggerating just a little Vlad Tepesh aka the Dracula was still up to his pole impaling ways although he didn't come off nearly as menacing as the legend portrays Sure he gets pissy and makes an example of people but he also has a protective side when it comes to what he deems his people Strange YeahkindaIt's Vlad though We already know him from Night Huntress He's temperamental; he's arrogant; he's the only vampire you even want to read about any So what if he's not uite as threatening as how we or maybe just I envisioned THE VladI'd still be afraid of him though Authentic or not he's still a scary badassEven though this book didn't give me the same feel good reaction that I had the first time I ever picked up a NH book I still found Once Burned to meet and exceed my expectations After finding myself starting to lose steam with the NH series I still haven't read book 6 after being extremely disappointed with book 5 at least this book felt like we were heading into some new territoryThe first half of the book was a lot of fun Talk about starting off with a bang The carnie vibe and new cool powers introduced in this book made me glad that I wasn't reading a rehash of Cat and Bones who went from exciting to snoozeville One of my favorite things about UFPNR is getting to suspend belief So what if an electric shock isn't going to turn someone superhuman In paranormal books anything is possible Woo hooThe second half of the book made me nervous Frost has a way of creating great characters and drawing you into a world extremely fast Then the story starts to flounder somewhere It wasn't that the second half of the book was boring okay maybe a couple of chapters wereeh that's minor though but I was already starting to feel like I was ready to be done with the story once Vlad and Leila hooked up I'm not sure how I'm going to handle an entire series The first time I read a Frost book I appreciated this author's mashup of UF and PNRuntil after 3 books of NH I realized that the format doesn't work for sustaining interest I prefer either a single booksingle couple PNR or a slow build UF romance with ongoing story There is something about putting a couple together and having them continue their story over several books that smacks of domesticity even if conflicts pull them apart and they have to find their way back together You never get that initial spark back The fantasy diesMaybe I'll get lucky and this won't happen But I'm seriously doubting itExtra random thoughts Leila's sister reminded me of a rehash of Cat's mom I was ready to kick her out the second she showed up Loins was used 10 times in this book Who uses that term outside of historicals Why don't I remember seeing this in NH Was it there too Don't misunderstand this review I'm definitely looking forward to book 2

OH MY GOD It is finally here The book we have all been waiting for in the great world that author Jeaniene Frost has created We finally get Vlad in all of his sexy glory I admit that when this book arrived for me to review I almost fell over from excitement I screamed in joy overheated at the sexy cover and even told my family to get the heck out of the way while I ran for my favorite reading chair The family went without dinner They were not allowed to bother me All regular chores ceased as Vlad arrived in my mailbox We start off in the story reading about Leila and her life She is disfigured due to a freak accident long ago by touching a downed power line and has joined the carnival as an entertainer She is aware of vampires in the world because her partner for her act is a midget vamp Don't let Marty's small stature make you think he is a puny vamp though He is like a Father figure to Leila and he has a heart bigger than most regular sized people When Leila is kidnapped by other vampires she is forced to use some of her other 'gifts' that came about after the energy absorbed from the power line She can touch things with her right hand and send out electrical shocks She can also see glimpse's of the past present and future with a small touch She pulls these glimpse's from leftover essence that a person leaves behind on things The vampires that have kidnapped her are working for a stronger vamp who is searching for Vlad He wants revenge on Vlad and will use any means necessary to get him When Leila is forced to use her gifts she is surprised to learn that Vlad can hear her spying on his present She figures he is the less of the two evils and asks for his help Vlad comes to the rescue and sweeps Leila away to his castle in Romania so they can work together in finding the bad guyAs they try to work together Leila finds herself attracted to the mysterious and ruthless Vlad He has the sex appeal and strength she craves Leila has never been in a relationship before due to her 'shocking gifts' and is venturing down a new path with Vlad Her gifts have no real effect on Vlad and she can't believe how wonderful it feels to touch someone without hurting him Vlad is his typical confident and arrogant self knowing how he is having an effect on her since he can read her mind What ensue's is heated glances confident flirting and a bunch of sexy timeOh yes by this time in the book you are wondering the same thing Trust me in saying that the author does not disappoint in describing in glorious detail the image of Vlad's body Before you even ask yes there is even another hot and steamy shower scene that involves a very excited Vlad swoonAs things get even dangerous for Vlad and Leila Vlad brings her family to his castle as well for protection We get to meet her father and Leila's sister Gretchen To see Leila so close to a man is shocking to say the least for them Especially when they notice Vlad is able to hold her hand with no show of painThe author does not disappoint with her flair of hilarity whenever Vlad is around He is even hilarious when Bones and Cat decide to make a brief appearance in the book Again Bones loves to tease Vlad and he grabs the chance to tease at him when he teaches Leila how to block Vlad from reading her mindIf I had one complaint about this book it would only be the ending I can't even really call it a complaint though The way it ends you are left hanging with the knowledge that their story is far from over Since this is going to be at least a two book series we have to wait until the next book to have some things resolved This was very frustrating only because we have waited so long as it is for Vlad to have his own book Now the reader has to wait againOverall the story sucked me in chewed me up then spit me out It left me wanting to read the story all over again I wanted Vlad before but now I need Vlad To say it is going to be a long and torturing wait is an understatement If you haven't read about Vlad before you are missing out on one of the sexiest alpha vamp's in the paranormal genre
