This was a very well-written vampire story with a unique view of what vampires really are. It was written in a manner that would be fit for Young Adults and Adults. The main point was a little overdone but with enough action and intrigue that it wasn’t objectionable. (Goodreads summary): It’s the last day of the summer holiday in The Hague when Leah Koopmans’s carefree life as a teen is brutally flipped upside down. Her pale skin turns a dazzling gold, her senses heighten, and her muscles possess an uncanny strength.

While her body craves for fresh victims and her heart drowns in guilt, she meets inhumanly handsome Max Machiavelli, who claims that Leah is immortal like him. Infatuation ignites into blistering passion when she joins his coven in Amsterdam. But as the mysteries shrouding her sudden change to immortality unravel, Leah quickly learns that her aversion to taking life isn’t the only thing that sets her apart from this group of herculean strangers.

Jeremy’s Kiss was very potent!! Yes it is another vampire story but put’s a new insight into the interpretation of a vampire’s life. Are there other paranormal characters as well? Read it and discover for yourself. Natalie had gotten out of the Air Force to finish her degree and to begin in her chosen field. She knew nobody in the area except for one classmate who befriended her.  They both were in their final semester. Jeremy never pressured her for more than friendship. Lilith was only a young teenager when she met Li’l Mo, her boyfriend’s uncle. He allowed her to stay temporarily at his place…that is until she was no longer able to stay. The author has a few different situations occurring in this book, yet , he has titled each section in a way it is not at all difficult to follow.  Therefore, the story steadily moves forward, never dragging.  It is quite well written and descriptive with only a very few grammatical errors. There are several more key characters involve in the events which unfold.  The are well defined and the reader gets a sense of knowing them.  The surrounding scenes are fairly well defined, as well. …
