The BookWhisperer's Rating:
For almost a century, the Realm’s most deadly assassin, Chalton Reese, has left war and death in the past, turning instead to strategy, reason, and technology. His fingers, still stained with blood, now protect with a keyboard instead of a weapon. Until the vampire king sends him on one more mission; to hunt down a human female with the knowledge to destroy the Realm. A woman with eyes like emeralds, a brain to match his own, and a passion that might destroy them both—if the enemy on their heels doesn’t do so first.
Olivia Roberts has foregone relationships with wimpy metro-sexuals in favor of pursuing a good story, bound and determined to uncover the truth, any truth. When her instincts start humming about missing proprietary information, she has no idea her search for a story will lead her to a ripped, sexy, and dangerous male beyond any human man. Setting aside the unbelievable fact that he’s a vampire and she’s his prey, she discovers that trusting him is the only chance they have to survive the danger stalking them both.
If you ever ask the question, “Can I pick up a Rebecca Zanetti book in the middle of a series and just read and thoroughly enjoy it?” I am here to answer that you can. I unfortunately have not read any other of the Dark Protectors series but found myself engrossed in the world Rebecca has created and in Chalton and Olivia. I have also found myself wanting to start at the beginning of this series and read all the books up to this one and past it. I can’t imagine that Rebecca can create anything other than brilliance.
Even though Teased is a short novella, it does not hold back in the action (and the many forms of action one character can have.) Opening with some highly intensive action scenes, our two characters meet and the plot starts to uncover. Enough of the background is given so that you are not lost and things keep on heating up so you are never bored.
Plus, it looks like a future couple is introduced in this book and I am very intrigued on how this is going to play out. I can’t wait to see how this turns out!
