Summary from Goodreads.com

My Review: A friend of mine recommended this to me swearing that I would devour it, she talked about it for a week straight and every time I saw her it was “Did you read it?  Did you?”  Finally I gave into her suggestion and downloaded the book to my kindle.

I will admit I was a little hesitant because this is another vampire book and as I am sure you know, vamp books are everywhere right now.  All of my worries were for naught though because this book was amazing!  It is not an entirely new take on vamps, but it is different enough that my interest was peaked immediately.

As the book begins, you are thrown into the lives of three brothers who have broken away from the main population of vamps and live on their own.  The vocab woven into the story at the beginning will be perplexing at first, but in time it all makes sense.   I did pick up on some context clues and was able to decipher a little, but other words I had to wait until it was spelled out.  Which is fine for me, I don’t mind that type of format.  Actually quite the opposite, I think it is fun to be drowning a little at the beginning of a story and be forced to tread water until the secrets unfold and I can swim through.  The mystery just adds to the intrigue of the book and leaves me wanting more every time.

Eternal Hunger follows the story of Alexander, the “prisoner” of the brothers.  He is definitely rough around the edges, but so fun to watch struggle when it comes to his feelings about Sara.  The bad boys never really give in easily do they?  Sara and Alexander definitely have some issues to work though, like her being a human for example.  I had fingers crossed the whole book that they were going to figure out a way to be together and the ending took me completely off guard.  It was brilliant!   I felt like the answer was staring me in the face the whole book and I get to the end and I said “oh, that’s it!”  Don’t you just love when that happens?  At the end you are also left with a slight cliffhanger, but I use that word cautiously because I think it is a great setup for the next book rather than a cliffhanger.  When you read it, you will see what I mean.

On another note, this is an adult book, you can probably tell that from the cover and summary, but a little word of caution.  The vamp brothers in this book, are not clean, well spoken, gentlemen type and they are definitely not worried about your virtue.  They are rough and their thoughts are dirty.  As a result the language can get a bit intense at points.  I kept in mind that the characters would think that way so it made sense, but it did catch me off guard at first.  On the flip side though, the book is pretty freaking hot!  It is really hard to resist the brothers no matter how tough they are.

Eternal Hunger is a tantalizing read that left me aching for the next book.  The brothers, while crass at times, are highly addictive.   The next book focuses on Nicholas, who is labeled “the lover” of the group and I am sure that will prove to be an interesting to read.  Do I really have to wait until April for it to come out though?  *pouts*  Oh well, I am sure it will be worth it 🙂  Haven’t read this series yet?  I highly suggest your check it out, totally worth it!
