I’m still not sold on this series but it’s growing on me. I can’t stand the macho bullshit or how misogynistic the male characters are and how they treat the females like dirt. I just cannot respect any man who treats a woman like crap ever.
I thought Kaleb aka Hawk was a giant dickhole for the way he treated Suzi and his attitude towards all women which was they are only good for sex and feeding. He’s a vampire.
Ten years ago, Kaleb took Suzi’s virginity and walked away from her because he was frightened about how she made him feel. He flaunted tons of women in her face. She turned to his nephew as a friend but he thought they were lovers so when he told Suzi that his nephew, Ion, was murdered and Suzi hadn’t reacted like Kaleb thought she should, he began to hate her. He thought she was cold-hearted.
What Kaleb didn’t know was that Suzi just pretended to date Ion so he could hide the fact that he was gay. She kept his secret after he died.
Suzi is a blood donor for the Sons of Sangue who are all vampires but she retired herself and hid out for six months after Kaleb kissed her one night. Kaleb, who has feelings for her but also hates her demands that she become his personal blood donor to torture her.
I liked Suzi because she had spunk and didn’t make it easy on him at first but she still had feelings for him which bugged me because if someone treated me like that, I could only resent them.
Meanwhile, we still have Rosalee, the primordial vampire with a grudge against Kaleb’s brother Kane. She thinks killing Kaleb will hurt Kane enough that he’ll turn to her. She really has messed up thinking.
I already have the first three books of this series because I purchased them a year or more ago so I’m going to read the next book even though, from the background story, I will probably like the next male protagonist even less because he’s a womanizer.
