“Jill Prescott returned from self-imposed seclusion to help save her best friend Devan’s life. Throwing herself into Devan’s problems and bringing an evil organization to its knees might just be the distraction she needs to keep living without the only man she’s ever loved. Her life changed forever when she was hired to spend a week with Doc Massey. On the day she became a vampire her youthful innocence ended, but Doc’s love rescued her from being consumed by the darkness. The shadow of that former life continues to loom over her, keeping her from realizing her own self-worth. Running from her past only brings her closer to a destiny that is inextricably connected to what she is trying to escape… Every gift has both a reward and a price, because All of it fits…”First off, I have to admit that I was not a huge fan of the first book in this series, Witch Way Bends. I had a really hard time connecting to Devan and I felt the writing was all around confusing to me. It took me honestly about halfway through the book before I could really grasp what was going on. Needless to say, Bitten Shame was a whole other game.
This book is all about Jill, Devan’s old college friend who is now a vampire. The story takes place from where the characters are now, after book one and goes back in time to tell Jill’s past. Words can’t describe how in love I fell with Jill and Doc’s relationship. The pure and sweet intentions that never turned sour. To see the strength of Jill and watch her character develop was astounding from the ditzy blond college student who wasn’t sure what she wanted to do with life to someone, who took a chance when she thought it was all she had left and became a bit of a superhero herself. I felt awful to watch her go through her loneliness and fight for the will to live, there were times I questioned on whether her and Langston would become a couple but soon realized it’s simply more of a father figure.
My Rating for this Book:
