Review - Bitten Shame

Jill Prescott returned from self-imposed seclusion to help save her best friend Devan’s life. Throwing herself into Devan’s problems and bringing an evil organization to its knees might just be the distraction she needs to keep living without the only man she’s ever loved. Her life changed forever when she was hired to spend a week with Doc Massey. On the day she became a vampire her youthful innocence ended, but Doc’s love rescued her from being consumed by the darkness. The shadow of that former life continues to loom over her, keeping her from realizing her own self-worth. Running from her past only brings her closer to a destiny that is inextricably connected to what she is trying to escape… Every gift has both a reward and a price, because All of it fits…

My review:

Great follow up novel to the first in the series - Witch Way Bends. That is where we first meet Jill. Jill was a friend of Devan's back in college. It was during that period that Jill took a job recommended by a friend that led to her meeting Doc.

We spend the novel in the present, which continues where the previous book ended. And in the past, where Jill met Doc and how she became a vampire. This is done in alternating chapters which are really well put together. You can see how the events that Jill is remembering are affecting her current decisions and how she reacts. You never get lost or bored or wonder where you are. The past and present chapter meld together perfectly and create a great story.

I loved the first book, and the second did not disappoint. It was just as good. And I am eagerly looking forward to the third, which I hope comes out soon. I highly recommend that you check this series out. It is one not to be missed.
