Some of the reviews I read of the first book in this series criticized it for the character Brittany, who is supposed to come off sweet and carefree, and comes off a bit like an air head. I liked her, and I even liked Corbin. But that was when they were side characters in someone else’s story. This book, which sidelines characters I cared about, and focuses on two who in large doses are repetitive, shallow and fail to communicate, was rather lacking. There is only the barest pretext of plot before it jumps directly to sex scenes... during which the characters interrupt themselves for conversation, with no noticeable difference in the mood between conversation and intimacy. The word choice is more contrived, and the light, humorous style in the first and fourth book (haven’t read the second yet) is painfully absent. The characters quickly prove thin and unlikable. The aggravating empacise of how free Brittany is, and the mysterious disappearing and overly stereotypical French accent Corbin sometimes spots is as annoying as the random time jumps. That said, the second half of the novel is readable, and begins to contribute back to the series plot. The ending is also interesting in that it's the opposite from the usual vampire story conclusion.
