Jacqueline Frank - Hunger review

This is the 2nd book in the series, but I didn't feel like Thirst had to be read before this one. The majority of this book took place in a small space.  It was  interesting and intriguing.  The chemistry between Halo and Felice was intense.  He was a cocky bastard and he didn't care if she called him out on it. Under normal circumstances, Felice would never have given Halo a chance after he opened his mouth.  But with things being as they were, they couldn't hide their attraction.  Even though things seem dire, their chemistry is a potent thing.  So the timing may have been off, but it worked for them! I was drawn into their turmoil and their desire.  There was action, a LOT of action and a little blood and guts, but I was on the edge of my seat and didn't want to put this book down. 
I enjoyed how pieces of the story developed bit-by-bit the further we got into it.  The reasons why weren't known upfront and we had to work at getting that story. This book held my attention and I didn't want to do anything that would take me away from it! I like Felice's tenacity toward Halo and how she didn't let him get away with anything. She was the first person who ever called him out on his actions or feelings. She also saw more than others had in the past.  She wanted to break down his walls and get to know the man she saw glimpses of as they were held captive. She was a game changer for him and she definitely hadn't been looking for anyone.  I liked the fact that the vampires take energy, not blood. I don't necessarily go looking for vampire stories but  this is a unique spin on it and I really liked this book and recommend it!  Happy reading!

Two strangers—one warm and human, the other deadly and craving—become pawns in an all-out vampire war as this series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Nightwalkers saga heats up.

As an energy vampire, Halo enjoys the chase for human blood—if it’s pure and consensual. But Halo goes from hunter to hunted when he is knocked unconscious and taken hostage by vicious sycophants. As he comes to, he realizes that he’s naked, starving, and trapped in a sealed room. With him is a deliciously human female, tempting him to feed—except her blood is heady with the scent of poisonous drugs. Never has nourishment been so near, yet so far . . . and it’s all part of the sycophants’ sick game.

The last thing Felice Mendoza remembers is everything going black. She awakens stripped, drugged, exposed, and alone—with a vampire. Halo is at once savage and tender, terrifying and alluring. Felice senses that her only chance to escape depends upon his survival. Given the choice between Halo and his enemies, Felice surrenders to his ravenous hunger. It’s a calculated risk—and a delirious pleasure. As Felice is ushered into a world as dangerous as it is desirable, their fight for deliverance is only the beginning.
