Review – ‘Taming the Vampire’ by Chloe Hart

Blurb 

Demon hunter Liz Marlowe and vampire Jack Morgan have hated each other from the moment they met. But when a powerful enemy threatens their beloved city of Boston, they form a reluctant alliance. It's supposed to be temporary--just one night, in fact. But as the tension between them builds to the breaking point, neither is prepared for what happens next.


Review 


Liz Marlowe is an elf from a diluted bloodline and she belongs to a warrior group of elves called the Green Fae. Their task is to protect the world from demons and monsters. A few vampires have sided with the Green Fae over the years but she and vampire Jack Morgan don’t get along. In fact they hate each other so much they can’t see the sexual chemistry between them. When they have to work together to save the city of Boston, everything is changed between them.

I couldn’t connect with Liz. She’s mean, rude, and downright bitchy at times. I felt a little bad for her at the beginning—I could understand why she’s so rough around the edges—but my sympathy faded after a while. I liked Jack better. He smarts off to Liz at every chance he gets it, but she’s the one who starts the arguments.

The book could use a light edit to combine various paragraphs of back-to-back dialogue that should all be in one paragraph. (A character would sometimes say one sentence and then the next line/paragraph would be the same character’s second sentence.) That didn’t make sense to me.

All in all, it’s a good story but I just couldn’t connect with the heroine.
