Blurb: Love between a young man with a broken mind and the jaded New Vampire Justice officer who cares for him might be the last hope to stop a human-vampire war….
Justin Masters is stuck in a nightmare. Waking after seven years in a catatonic state, he falls desperately in love with the straight NVJ officer who saved him. Between that and dreams of being tortured and taking pleasure in the pain, which bleeds into his waking hours, Justin’s sure he’s starting to crack.
The growing unrest in the vampire world should be Max Kincaid’s focus, but Justin’s struggle, along with Max’s confusing feelings for his ward, have him reeling. When Justin’s attacked, his resulting needs might be more than what Max can provide, but he’ll be damned if anyone else will touch Justin.
As the NVJ investigates humans missing from a high-end bite club, they uncover a deeper plot that traces back to Justin. If those who want him have their way, there will be bloodshed. Justin and Max are in a fight to save Justin not only from those who would use him, but from his own mind.
Review: This is the second book in the New Vampire Justice series and is best read in order.
This is a dark book at times about kidnapping and torture of humans and vampires alike at the whim of a frightening new evil. Max is part of the NVJ and is responsible for Justin, a man who was taken and done horrible things to in the last book.
Justin still has nightmares and flashbacks to what he endured and struggles to gain his sanity back. I felt sorry for Justin as I read what exactly he went through. But I was glad Max was there to offer some kind of stability and guidance when Justin became lost in his memories.
I loved the interaction between the NVJ team as they investigated the disappearances and stopped at nothing to find the culprits. Though this story is dark and intense at times it does have a HEA. Well written with amazing details that grips the reader from start to finish.
This is a wonderful addition to the series. Cannot wait to see what else happens in the series. Highly recommended.
