Welcome to our blog!
Amy and Jennifer ARE Seduced by Books. We’re both in our 30’s, moms, close friends, work together, and share many of the same interests including our love of reading. Amy grew up in Maryland and has been obsessed with Vampires for as long as she can remember. Jenn grew up in Florida and loves the furry, the fey, and the fangs, in that order. Currently we are both in Orlando, FL. When we can be pulled away from books, Amy loves to bake and Jenn loves to take pictures and scrap.
We decided to create a place where we could direct friends, and acquaintances for, book suggestions/recommendations (Jenn’s been known to talk to strangers on the train while traveling in NYC). Once we started out with a simple page, we evolved from there. Now we are sharing our book reviews, fun comments, recipes, and giveaways. We try to give reviews on new releases, pre-releases, and oldies but goodies that we read, or are reading. We’re going to be adding author interviews for established and up and coming authors soon.

My Love Eternal by Liz Strange

My Love EternalTall, dark, and sexy, as well as fabulously wealthy, Giovanni is everything a girl could ask for in a lover. There's only one catch. He's been undead for more than three hundred years. When Rachel is drawn into Giovanni's world, she learns that the rules of human existence mean nothing in the world of vampires. This, however, is a fair price to pay for a love that will last forever.
Hunted by the Desmarais family, who carry a centuries-old vendetta, Rachel and Giovanni travel to the ends of the earth in order to stay one step ahead. Can their love survive, or will their eternity together end? (courtesy of Amazon)

Liz Strange’s My Love Eternal is the first in the Dark Kiss trilogy and just what the vampire fiction needs.  Not only do we have the classic vampire meets human falls in love – BUT Strange doesn’t make those vampires the ‘vegetarians’ that many of our books have moved towards lately.  Giovanni feeds on humans, kills some, leaves some, it is what it is.  And yet, we clearly still like him for it.  Rachel has the dark streak in her soul as well.  It’s great to see this one ‘vampire’ characteristic is not forgotten with Strange and she brings it in her story well.
The story moves along extremely well – as we watch Rachel and Giovanni mold as a couple and she discovers his past.  Righteously killing criminals as they feed and even saving a child.  I thought the action and plot were captivating, and honestly, I didn’t want to put it down.  Strange steams it up in the bedroom just to the right level. Action and suspense as they are hunted just when they started to let their guard down.

I have come across some good reads in the last month or so that I have to say – this one also gets 4 slices – grab this series.  I’m already on book 2 (A Second Chance at Forever) which I didn’t want to put down even to write this review!  Expect to see that one in a day or so and so far it's on it's way to a higher rating, we'll have to see how she ends it!!!
