Eve Flynn spends her nights hunting
vampires in search of the one who killed her parents. Along
the way, she caught the attention of Lazarus, who also just
happens to be the BMOC of vampires in Full Moon Bay. Eve
doesn’t want anything to do with Lazarus unless it pertains to
sex; sex is all she can do because in order to have a
relationship with Lazarus, she would have to admit she cares
about him. That is one thing Eve refuses to admit.
Lazarus loves watching Eve hunt and
strike down vampires. He won’t hunt and kill his own kind but
he really enjoys watching Eve do it. She is his consort and
while she won’t admit her need for Lazarus, Lazarus has enough
for both of them.
Things get interesting in their
relationship when a powerful fairy finds and gifts Eve with a
present. Will Lazarus keep her out of this fairy’s clutches
or will Eve in her stubbornness, fall victim to fairy magic?
I like how Cynthia Rayne wrote the
relationship between Eve and Lazarus. Usually the male is the
person who doesn’t want to commit and it was refreshing to
read a storyline about a woman being hesitant. I found the
sex tantalizing and I liked how Lazarus was patient even when
Eve was being stubborn. I found Taking Eve to
be a fun, afternoon read.
