Born into light, made to live in darkness, Caressa strives to keep her coven safe from the Hunters, a group of killers trained to eradicate the vampire population.
Now, it's up to Caressa to ensure the survival of not only herself, but her sisters as well. Together they must make difficult decisions to recruit more soldiers to help aid in the fight against the Hunters.
Everything is going according to plan. That is, until Noah walks into Club Blood.
His gorgeous body and infectious smile make him hard to resist. But, that's exactly what Caressa has to do - resist him. Avoid him at all costs because the moment she lets her guard down, he will surely claim her heart. A heart that is cold, dark, and incapable of giving someone like him the love he deserves.
Can Caressa deny herself the love she so desperately craves and turn away the only person capable of giving her everything she has ever wanted? Or will she give in to her heart's true desire and put her coven in even more danger than they already were?
Bitten was an entertaining listen from start to finish. The romance does happen really fast, and instalove doesn't always work for me, but this is paranormal romance, and it's really hard not to be completely okay with a whole lotta instalove when you're listening to an engaging story performed by Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross. The story is a quick listen, and it's really more steamy than erotic in my opinion. What I really like is that Nicole Garcia doesn't let the storyline fall short, which happens all too often in erotic romances. Bitten may be plenty steamy, but there's also some intrigue in there along with the threat of danger. This is the first in a series, but we get a satisfactory conclusion. There is a continuing storyline, and I'm interested to see where that goes as well as which one of Carissa's coven gets the next romance.
Shew! Gia and Rhett are hot, hot, hot, and listening to Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross as Gia and Rhett just adds to sexy fun. I liked Noah and Carissa from book one, but there's just something about this couple - maybe it was the push and pull between them, maybe it was the chemistry, maybe it was a bit of both. Either way, these two make for a great romance, and I love the way things happen between them. I also really like Gia's backstory. I won't spoil it, but I like the way Nicole Garcia tied it in to her feelings about relationships and trust.
