“The Way You Bite” by Zoe York has interesting twists on vampire vs. werewolf interactions. I’m fascinated by the heroine being both an MD and a veterinarian, although it comes in handy when she is dealing with those who have long been considered deadly enemies. I enjoyed the sexy Lexan and the complications that accompany the Romeo and Juliet nature of his relationship but there were a few things that were a bit frustrating to me.
I am a little puzzled that Vee is supposedly such an anomaly and hides such secrets in her DNA, yet has been just a pawn for so long. She seems to vacillate between being proactive and trying to escape the plans her fiancé and father have for her. One would also expect a close relative to have better prepared her for the changes coming in her life. I think the overall premise is a nice change from typical paranormal stories but I wonder whether there are other books involving these characters that provide a little more background.
This paranormal romantic suspense centers around Vee Scarpa, a demisang vampire who is expected to comply with dynastic plans that are repugnant to her. A patient who is ostensibly the enemy of her people stymies her escape plans but ends up changing her future in unexpected ways.
When King Werewolf shows up in veterinarian Vee Scarpa’s ER, she’s livid. Her father, North American head honcho vampire, has threatened a chilling or else if she “ accidentally” helped a wolf again, especially since they’re at war. But she’s tempted by the sexy wolf. And his deadly blood calls to her in a way that should set off warning bells...
A promise to his brother in arms obliges Lexan Dimitrov to rescue the aristocrat vampire before her family discovers her secret—a secret Vee herself isn’t even aware of. What he didn’t expect was to find her sexy-as-hell. He’s not into vamps, yet the inescapable heat building between them is a delicious temptation guaranteed to end in total disaster.
