My Review of "Midnight Rose" by D. McEntire

My Review of Midnight Rose by D. McEntire
Sometimes a rose is more than a rose.
The countdown is on for Louisville, Kentucky’s fireworks show and the Watchers are in place. Rogue vampires, being the ultimate party crashers they are, are expected to join the revelry.

Rosa Bella, standing-room-only singer at the Black Panther Lounge, has her own chaos to manage. As a vampire who manages to blend in with society, she doesn’t need any more complications. But a gorgeous one has just turned her life upside down—Vane, a Watcher assigned to hunt down and eliminate Rogues prowling the downtown streets.

Vane, dubbed “Latin Lover” by his fellow Watchers, fills his nights with his favorite letter of the alphabet, “F”— females and food. But nothing fills his empty heart like Rosa’s soft, sexy body. Still, a Watcher’s life has no room for attachments, even one who can defend herself with a pair of red stilettos.

Then two unexpected players join the game, and Rosa is thrust into the middle as the prize. They never expected their relationship to be a bed of roses, but as the festival-ending horse race looms, the only way to survive to the finish line is to face the dangers—together.
Warning: Contains sex, drugs, rock and roll, and a sexy vampire with a big appetite.


D. McEntire’s is a great suspense writer. Her use of certain plot conventions naturally seem to creat a story which keep a reader guessing, reading, and therefore waiting with bated breath for the other axe to fall, or should I say, next bite to happen. Midnight Rose is different and in some respects is the same as Midnight Reborn, the Watchers Book 1.  I must say, I liked the blend. This series is definitely not one composed of several books with the same basic plotline, but different character names

Book 2 was a new romance, new issues, new battles with a rich back story to pull from. I enjoyed the return to Robyn and Trigg from the first story and the way this one begun where the Book 1 left off. 

There was a constant interlacing of the new bad guys, new agendas, with the old connections. This book is more blood and less violence, if you know what I mean in the vamp world. And, I found it just as addicting as the first book. Even the relationship complications were different giving an interesting twist to the conflicts of the plot. McEntire is a true genius at writing a series!

With a satisfying ending which left open and lingering aspects of other supporting characters you are still lead right into the next book.
I am looking forward to reading Midnight Revelations.
