Review ARC Nightshade by Michelle Rowen

Nightshade (Nightshade, #1)

I absolutely adore paranormal romance. Nightshade was no exception. This was an amazing story on all levels. Michelle Rowen brought kick ass heroin to a whole new level for me. 

Blurb From Michelle's Site:
Jillian Conrad never believed in vampires. But she’s just become a living, breathing weapon against them. Attacked by a desperate scientist, she is injected with a serum that was supposed to act as a deadly poison to vampires. And when the scientist is gunned down in front of her, his secrets die with him.

Declan Reyes was only half-vampire, but he hates them with all his heart. He knows that the poison in Jillian’s veins could finally destroy the undead kingdom. Also, the serum has had an unintended effect, making her blood irresistible to all vampires—including Declan, whose bloodthirsty traits are driven into a frenzy by her.

Driven by duty to protect her and by instinct to crave her, Declan takes Jillian into his world of blood and battle. But he soon realizes his increasing need for her may be a different kind of hunger…

My Thoughts:
Jillian Conrad was an ordinary woman who worked temp jobs because she could never find anything she loved enough to keep a permanent position. While working at a temp job that she didn't really like, Jillian set out to get coffee one afternoon, but she didn't realize that that afternoon getting stuck in the Starbucks waiting line would change her life forever. 

On her way back to her office while waiting for an elevator Jill's life changed the moment Dr.Anderson stepped out of off the elevator. Jill could tell that there was something wrong with the look in his eyes but she never expected to be caught in the middle of a showdown between Dr Anderson and Declan a half vampire, a dahmpyr assassin. During the most bizarre argument that Jill has ever heard Anderson took Jill as a hostage and stuck her in the neck with a poison. A poison that shoved Jill into the world of Vampires and vampire hunters. 

Declan Reyes a dahmpry vampire assassin has done what he has been told to do for his entire life. Suppressing animalistic side has been the only thing that Declan cares about. Even though he is half vampire he hates the entire species with everything he has. He has spent his entire life keeping his emotions in check that he doesn't realize when someone is trying to get close to him.

Declan takes Jill back to his home where his father Carson Reyes is suppose to help Jill figure out how to take Nightshade out of her system without killing her. But finds out that there is more going on with his father's research then he could ever imagine possible. 

I absolutely adored Nightshade. An action-packed read from beginning to end. I absolutely loved Jill. The spirit and fight that she has is remarkable considering what she is going through. But Jill soon realizes that her life means more to her than even she realized. The relationship between Declan and Jill is mysterious and heart throbbing. 

A great story of betrayal, passion, fear, longing and hope. Nightshade is a must read for me. Anyone who loves paranormal romance and loves a Kick Ass Heroine and an amazingly Sexy Half Vampire definitely need to check out Michelle's Nightshade! I am highly anticipating Bloodlust book 2 in the Nightshade series.

I give this 5/5 Hearts!!
