" I don't do dangerous.  Smart, über-careful, ordinary Samantha-that's me. But I just couldn't pass up a surprise kiss from my number-one unattainable crush. A kiss that did something to me...something strange. Now I feel hungry all the time, but not for food. It's like part of me is missing-and I don't know if I can get it back. Then there's Bishop. At first I thought he was just a street kid, but the secrets he's keeping are as intense as his unearthly blue eyes. If he's what I think he is, he may be the only one who can help me. But something terrifying is closing in, and the one chance Bishop and I have to stop it means losing everything I ever wanted and embracing the darkness inside me.... NIGHTWATCHERS When angels and demons must work together, something beyond evil is rising..."

Review: Dark Kiss was a quick read. It was interesting to see angels and demons actually working together to keep the balance in heaven and hell. Samantha was a character who I could at times sympathize for especially after the kiss that should never have happened and stole her soul away. I liked the mystery around her and learning who and what she really was right alongside her. 

Bishop was the angel sent down to lead the group of demons and angels to save Trinity but something happens and for the most part of the book he is constantly having to deal with keeping focus since his brain gets fuzzy, and the only way things clear up for him is with Samantha's touch. And because of that I didn't really find him swoon worthy actually I found him to be weak. Who I really liked was Kraven. He is a demon and is supposed to be all evil but there are times in the book when he is not busy getting under Samantha's skin he shows hints of something else...something not evil, like there is more to him then meets the eye. 

This book had a little bit of everything, it held my interest all they way to the very end and I'm actually curious enough about the characters and how things will workout for them that I will be picking up Wicked Kiss.

  1. I really liked it, and I agree. I found Bishop a little...weak, I guess....but I enjoyed Kravrn quite a bit! I wish to see more if him in the next book. Great review.

    1. I really want to like Bishop since that was the only flaw of his I didn't care for which ruined his whole character for me but I hope in the next book somehow he gets over being dependent on Samantha's touch.
