Every gift has both a reward and a price, because All of it fits…
Bitten Shame tells us the story of Jill Prescott. Jill is a Vampire who is ready to end her life. She has lost the love of her life and now the darkness is trying to take over. Now she is on a journey to help her super witch friend Devan stop a horrible organization from abusing children.
What is so amazing about this story is the way that it is written. Every other chapter we bounce from the past to the present. At first I hated it but then I started to understand what the author was going for. There is a pattern to the madness.
In the present Jill is depressed, lonely and ready for everything to be over. She is tired of fighting. With each scene in the present we see her struggle to keep going. I was eager to understand how she got to where she was.
This was beautifully written so that every past memory was triggered at the right moment in the present. I was able to understand her ideas, her grief and her overall sadness in life. The story of the past was a wonderful romance with a devastating end. Its no wonder Jill doesn't want to go on living. She has nothing to live for.
The past was as good as it was ever going to get. The present is heartbreaking and the future..... well your just going to have to read the book to find that out!
This story is heart warming, breath taking and an overall beautiful romance that promises that love can stand the test of time.
