Jo has a slight problem. For five days
out of every month, she has almost uncontrollable sexual
urges. Every man that she sees is a potential bedmate
whether they want to be or not. The only way she can keep
the urgency to have sex at bay is to run until she is
exhausted and it is during one of these runs that she
stumbles, literally, upon Alek.
Alek is a vampire and has been mortally
wounded. Without the blood he needs to regenerate and heal
his wounds, Alek will perish. Underground and too weak to
help himself, Alek is resigned to his fate. That is, until
the beautiful and pheromone laden Jo lands almost in his
Alek and Jo seem to heal each other.
Their attraction to one another is instantaneous and
steamy. Their idyllic time together has to end, however,
because bigger things are at stake -- namely Alek’s land and
Jo’s ability to breed.
Jo and Alek grabbed my heart early on –
Jo most especially because she was confused. She had no
idea that she was a werewolf shape shifter and as such,
agonized about her urges each and every month. I found Alek
to be a loyal and handsome and a worthy man for Jo.
Not your average shape shifting novel,
Falling for You is a great second installment
of Barbara Elsborg’s Trueblood series. I can’t wait
to see what she releases next!
