Ok. It was a quick read and characters engaging enough to keep my interest but part of the quickness was due to skipping a lot of passages.

The hero, Brandon, is a wonderful character who is both deaf and mute but has the compensating factors of telepathy and hotness. Oh and he's a vampire. He falls in love with Angelina "Lina", a slightly older woman, human, cop. They are, despite my lukewarm review, actually a pretty sexy couple.

The story builds as the two of them fall in love and lust, make love, have a crisis, wind up apart. Then the rest of the book, probably about half, is them apart from each other. For a romance, didn't really work for me.

The overall story is left somewhat in the air, to make you want to read the next book. However the next books are about different main characters, and I felt like there were too many loose ends about this couple, especially Brandon. Further, looking ahead at the next books, the main villain in this book is eventually the main hero in book 3 or 4. A lot of books make bad characters turn a corner and become good, I just don't think I feel like reading about it in this case.

Probably not going to pursue this series.
