Amaretto is a vampire out looking for a
good time and a good meal. A club seems to be a good place
to find both and he just may have. Just when Amaretto is
about to get everything he is looking for, something attacks
him from behind. Leif has seen what vampires can do and he
is determined to stop as many as he can, starting with the
one he thinks is attacking a man. But things are not as
Leif thought when he wakes up as Amaretto's captive.
Amaretto is very attracted to Leif but
first he needs to find out a few things, like why did Lief
attack a person he thought was a vampire. Leif quickly
realizes that nothing he thought was true, but what throws
him the most is his instant attraction to Amaretto. Leif
and Amaretto team up to find the person killing and draining
the blood out of his victims. Finding the killer is
important, but Leif discovers that itís even more important
to show Amaretto that the best love is not bitter but sweet.
Bitter Love brings Amaretto, a vampire who
doesnít think he will ever find true love, and Leif, a human
wanting revenge for an old love, together on a search for a
killer. As I read, I found that the discoveries Amaretto
and Leif made about each other and themselves were much more
important. Amaretto and Leif need all the trust and
blossoming love they have found in each other when danger
grabs Leif. Both Amaretto and Leif have faced adversity in
their lives and on the surface have overcome it, but I loved
watching Leifís eyes being opened to just what Amaretto has
faced and where it has scarred him. By the last page, both
Amaretto and Leif had me and I can only hope that they will
make further appearances in future Blood Lines books.
Bitter Love is a bit bitter-sweet but in the way
of good chocolate and just as excellent. Lovers of several
genres will enjoy Amaretto and Leif.
