Publisher: Escape Publishing
A vampire-themed masquerade party isn't really her scene, but Nora is sick of frat parties and bars. When she meets Alec, the appeal suddenly becomes clear. It’s obvious that they've been struck by the same intense mutual attraction, but Alec keeps his distance. Intrigued despite herself, Nora pushes a little deeper — and discovers Alec’s unimaginable secret…
Nora is not afraid of following Alec into the darkness, but the choice is soon taken from her. Someone is hunting her — someone tied to the secret and desperate to see it play out. But when Nora finally meets her aggressor, she finds herself hopelessly drawn to him. She needs to make a choice between the two men, but can she save them both, knowing one is destined to die?
“This book is one of the best paranormals I've read, and I've read a lot. Five stars hands down! I am proud to pass it on to all of you. Buy this book, devour it and enjoy.”
Bitter Fruits is the first book in the Eden's Fall series by Sarah Daltry. This book has an interesting premise, but some of the actions of the main character lost my interest. So, I'll hop to the issues I had with it first. I didn't like the romance. I have a clear favorite among the brothers, and I know, in any book, the main character doesn't always pick my favorite, but in this case she's sleeping with both of them. She's forming love relationships with both of them, and they both know it, and they're okay with it. What? This didn't match their previous behavior, and it just wasn't believable. It seemed like a whole lot of lust rather than love, and I didn't buy it at all.
I think Lillith has been a little over done these days, but the myths surrounding her are pretty interesting. I didn't agree with the direction the story took some of the Lillith lore, but hey, it's fiction.
Again, I really liked the premise. It could be a heck of an interesting story. The author was brave with the romance in this story, so I give her major props for that. In this case, for me, those aspects of the romance kept me from enjoying it as much as I wanted to. With that being said there are a lot of reviewers out there that loved this story, so maybe you will too!
