Happily Never After

Happily Never After (Night Huntress #2.5) - Jeaniene Frost

Isabella has been blackmailed into marrying a mob boss after her little brother goes missing. Her grandmother just happens to have some connections and calls in a favor to help get her granddaughter out of trouble. Chase, a vampire, is the cavalry sent to stop the wedding and find Isabella's brother. Upon meeting Isabella, Chase immediately decides to prolong the job in order to get closer to her.

Happily Never After was pretty boring. This was primarily due to Chase and the vast difference between him and the humans he's pitted against. Chase is the only vampire in the story and no one knows they even exist (except for the grandmother), which led to Chase having the upper-hand in every confrontation. So, the bad guys were never made out to be any real danger. This made the action scenes extremely boring because Chase would just waltzed in and out of them whenever he felt like it. In fact, Chase came off as a bit of a jerk. He lets Isabella worry about the mobsters for quite a while just because he couldn't come up with another excuse to hang around her. This is one story I would recommend only to die-hard fans of Frost's.
