Lalita is a vampire on a mission and is
dressing to kill, or at least to get noticed by a certain
someone. Lalita has immersed herself in the Goth lifestyle
since moving to Hollywood. Now she can dress like she wants
and having fangs is part of fitting in Ė no one would ever
expect a vampire to actually play the part of one. Tonight
she is going to get Garethís attention personally even if
she canít get her fangs into him.
Gareth has wanted Lalita since she
joined his little group at the club. There is just
something about her that attracts his attention. He has
watched her flirt, grope and dance the night away. Gareth
knows that he wants her, but there is a very special reason
why he canít just take what he wants.
Lalita and Gareth explode together at
the club but they both seem to have secrets that they are
keeping from the other. Secrets lead to misunderstandings
that lead to even worse Ė heartbreak. Can Lalita and/or
Gareth find the understanding to look at what is just under
their public self in time to find out just where their
passion can lead or will they be forever apart?
Beneath the Surface leads
into the Goth club Strigoi and even further into the lives
of two of its patrons. Lalita knows that Gareth is
everything she wants in a mate, the only problem is that she
knows he is human. Gareth knows there is something very
special about Lalita but there is a reason he is the leader
of their little group and she might not be able to accept
it. I spent my time both laughing and shaking my head while
reading about all of Lalitaís schemes and Garethís
indifference. These two really do take the phrase Ė donít
ask, donít tell Ė to extremes. I was getting worried that
the truth would never come out for these two and was very
happy when they did discover the ultimate truth. Another
phrase that came to mind while reading Beneath the
Surface was Ė never assume.
Beneath the Surface is
hot, funny, and mind-boggling. In other words, itís a story
you wonít want to miss.
