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.

Darker After Midnight by Lara Adrian

In the dark of night, a blood war escalates within the hidden world of the Breed. After existing in secret for many long centuries, maintaining a fragile peace with the humans who walk beside them unaware, a single act of retaliation has put the entire vampire nation at risk of discovery. It falls to the Order--a cadre of Breed warriors pledged to protect their own and humankind alike--to stop Dragos, the power-mad vampire at the center of the conflict, before his push for domination can explode into catastrophe.

At the center of the Order’s quest is Sterling Chase, once a morally rigid enforcer of Breed law, now a warrior fallen from grace, whose biggest battle is the one he wages against his own savage nature. With addiction beckoning him toward eternal darkness, Chase’s path to redemption has never seemed more out of reach--until he finds himself drawn to a beautiful young woman who may be something much more than she seems . . .(courtesy of laraadrian.com)

This is the 10th book in the Midnight Breed series.

This book has to have some of Adrian's hottest romp scenes. I've been a fan of this series, and Adrian knows how to do passion as well as action.  Adrian takes a different take on the 'vampire' origin, and after the first book, when you are introduced to it, she really makes it work.  It's there, it's the 'truth' and he stories have just flowed.  (i'm sure i've said that before)  Darker After Midnight, takes the plot that the Order has been working so hard to defeat and gives us some wicked twists.  Man Dragos was really out there!  

Chase and Tavia are amazing.  Tavia in herself is unexpected and pushes this book in the right direction.  Adrian wraps you up in Chase's insanity and it work.  There is never a loss of action in these books, they are definitely one to grip you, as you turn each page hoping for a chance to run to the restroom, there's more and you can't stop.  As you've been with each of these brothers for a few years now, you can't let them go.  My heart ached for a few of them, and to find the perks in the ending; leaves you ready for the next book and with a warm settled feeling.  

I'm extremely impressed (not just by the sex scenes LOL) but with how Adrian takes the book and brings a closure to the plot while sprinkling in the opening for her next books.  This is not the last in the series, Adrian has a few more tricks up her sleeve. Everyone of Adrian's books in this series has been strong, there's not been a low point yet! 


  1. I have seen some great reviews of this book already. I really need to get caught up on this series and get my hands on all the books. Thanks for the great review!
