Review: On the Prowl by Cynthia Eden
On the Prowl
Bad Things #2
Rose Kinley never intended to be one of the most feared creatures to walk the earth. Once upon a time, she was a human—one who fell in love with a mysterious stranger. But when she got caught in a paranormal war, she lost her humanity and died…only to wake later as a vampire.
Now Rose has a choice. She can continue to try and be the good girl she once was or she can let her darkness out to play. Maybe it’s finally time for her to step into the dark.
He’s the reason she’s undead.
Panther shifter Julian Craig has a mission—protect Rose at all costs. It’s his fault that she lost her human life, and he literally made a deal with the devil so that she would have a second chance as a vampire. And as part of that deal, he’s supposed to keep his hands off Rose. An impossible task considering the dangerous lust he feels for her.
When Rose is targeted by a paranormal collector, Julian knows that he will have to let his own beast out if he is to protect the only woman who ever touched his battered soul. Rose may be afraid of the darkness she carries, but Julian is more than ready to show the world just what kind of a monster he truly is. Julian isn’t afraid of the dark…but the monsters that wait in the shadows? They will bow to him.
He’ll show her just how good it can feel…to be bad.
There are certain authors that no matter what they write, you love it. For me, Cynthia Eden is one of those authors. I really love her books...all of them and believe it or not she writes like a manic. Something I both love and hate about her. Okay, I'm lying I don't hate her for it at all.
Each time she has something new out I run to read it. Love them!!!
On the Prowl is book 2 of her new Bad Things series. If you haven't yet read The Devil in Disguise you are really missing out. Who else could make you fall for the devil?
On the Prowl is about Julian and Rose. You meet Julian in The Devil in Disguise. You also meet Rose in the book too but not as much. Right away you want to know more about Julian. You get that he owes Luke something and get a glimpse to what that is but until his book your don't really understand the depth of it.
Poor Rose is thrown into a life that she wants nothing to do with. In fact she's really to soft and sweet for that life.
Since Rose is having issues with what she now is and the part Julian plays in it they spend a lot of the book in conflict. At times I wish they hadn't spent so much of their time hashing old wounds. Buy the end of the story you'll understand everything and be happy that these two found each other.
For those of us who read The Devil in Disguise you'll be happy to know that Luke shows up in this one too. His brother is also in the story and just when you think you've gotten another piece of the puzzle he blows any good feels you have for him out of the water.
His story is going to be a good one to read.
Do yourself a favor and read this series in order. There are only the two books so it won't be that hard. If you get to it right away you'll be ready for Broken Angel which comes out 12/13. I can't wait.
If you've read On the Prow or any other book by Cynthia Eden I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading!
Other book in the series!
