The book that almost got started!

Advantages: A solid start, and the vivacious Violet.
Disadvantages: Never really got going, some uncomfortable "almost" rape scenes.

...in law, knowing my love for anything vampire related, decided she was going to treat me, in the form of this new book, and as i DO judge a book by it's cover (i know sooo shallow!), was quietly confident it was going to be a great read! Violet ...
