ARC ReviewTwilight Desires (Morgan Creek #3) by Amanda Ashley

sofia Ravenwood was once fascinated by vampires—their seductive power, their inhuman strength, their dark desires. Then one of them attacked her family, and she threw out her goth attire and vowed to keep clear of her enemies. Until she heard about Ethan Parrish: a sweet, sizzling-hot former college football player, turned into a vampire against his will.
Wandering the deserted streets of Morgan Creek, Wyoming, Ethan’s sure he'll be alone forever—a monster like him deserves nothing else. Then beautiful, complicated Sofia agrees to meet him, fangs and all. The need she ignites in him is more than just the pulse of her blood or the scent of her skin. But he's not the only bloodsucker desperate to make her his own

I have a nostalgic love for Amanda Ashley books. They are some of the first vampire romances I ever read. Hidden away in a dusty used bookstore, back in the corner where the romance section lived. There was a tiny section that held paranormal romances and I bought and ate all of them up.

I loved her historical romances full of food descriptions, innocent virgins and broody wealthy vampires.

But I was 16, with no life experience. It's harder for me to read these books now. I still enjoyed most of this, it had a lot of the elements I love about her books, plus her voice really is amazing. No one writes quite like her.

What I now have a hard time with is the broody moody vampire who changes with the love of a beautiful, fresh-faced, innocent girl- who is almost always a virgin.

Sofia was the most annoying character and I had a hard time reading anything from her third person POV. She's indecisive, weak-willed and not interesting.

This book is filled with lame stereotypes about goth people, a 19-year-old girl getting into bars and being served liquor and enough coincidences to prove the author didn't want to think out her plot, just have everything fall nicely into the character's laps.

If you, like me, grew up reading these kinds of vampire romance novels then this might be a light, easy, quick read to remind you how it felt to first fall in love with vampires. If you're new to the genre back away...slowly.
