Story Overview:
In the epic battle of vampire against vampire, one warrior's fate is bound to a mortal woman who controls him, commands him, and craves him like no other…

Chained For Life

Two years ago, the rogue vampires invaded Lily Haven's home and kidnapped her son. Now, if she hopes to see her child again, she must do the unthinkable—bind herself, body and soul, to a vampire warrior. She must choose one of the rogue army's prisoners of war and force him to do her bidding. But when she sees the warrior, Adrien, naked, beaten, and straining against his chains, it is she who is held captive…

Hungry For More

Adrien has been waiting for her. A beautiful woman who appears to him in visions. Who soothes his tortured body, feeds his erotic cravings—and quenches his thirst for blood. But Lily is more than he ever hoped for. She is the master of his destiny, and he is her willing slave. Even when she asks him to find the ultimate weapon for his enemies, he must obey her. Even if the task destroys them both, he will fight for her love, forever…

My Review:
Flat out...I bought this book because of that cover. Luckily, the story is good too. Really creative. Adrien and his two half brothers have spent the last 8 months chained and tortured. He's offered a way out by binding himself to Lily so that they can search for a weapon. He does NOT like humans and thinks that she's doing this entirely out of greed. 

Lily HATES vampires. They killed her entire family...or so she thought. Now she's found out that her son Josh is alive and she has the power to save him. She only has to bind herself to Adrien and search for this weapon. She knows it won't be easy, but will do anything to save her child. Anything. 

This book starts off incredibly quickly with a ton of action and suspense and really doesn't let up throughout the entire story. It also gets really smexy really fast and I loved that. There's a connection between Lily and Adrien that goes beyond their blood bond and it made the story and romance really intense. I love stories where there's something a bit more mystical/deeper to the romance than just normal lust and this book had it. 

It's a creative world and there are two other brothers still chained and tortured who need to be freed. There's also an insane bad guy still to catch so there are definitely more smexy, hot times to come and I'm looking forward to the next book. The ending on this one got a bit too smaltzy for me, but the rest of the book was OUTSTANDING! Definitely a fun, paranormal read. And I thought I was through with vampire stories...I was WRONG!!
