Heartbitten: A New Adult Vampire Romance Novel by Aubrey Rose

Billionaire playboy Robert Chatham is as bloodthirsty as it gets. Snarky and self-obsessed, he has a new girl every day of the week. What the London tabloids don’t know is the reason Robb acts like a lady-killer: to avoid having to kill them. A four-hundred year old vampire, he feeds and moves on, never getting attached to any girl. 

Until Liz.

A shy American transplant in the heart of London, Liz is slaving away on her grad school project: working to find a cure for the blood cancer that her younger sister died from years ago. Dead focused on her studies, she’s more interested in the chemistry of hemoglobin than in the chemistry between her and any guy. 

Until Robb.

After an old vampire friend comes asking for a favor, Robb has to choose between repaying a life debt and chasing after the one girl who’s broken through his emotional walls. And when Liz stumbles upon evidence that seems to solve the puzzle of his mysterious seclusion, she confronts him in his lab. Only the dark secret she thought she had uncovered turns out to be something even more terrifying.

With a dead body in the trunk of his Porsche and a vial of cancerous blood in the pocket of her lab coat, Robb and Liz are heading for a collision course that will change both of their lives forever…

Overall Rating:  2 Rockin' Stars!

The cover of this book and the blurb had me wanting to read it, but as I got further into the story I realized the plot wasn't developing and it was not building enough to keep me interested.  Liz and Robb's relationship seemed discombobulated and didn't grow as I read the book.  There was no chemistry or intrigue.  I was left feeling there should have been more and the ending was like huh? what?  

Overall, the book idea was satisfactory. This is the first book in this series and I would be interested in reading the next one to see how the author develops the characters.

Hero - Robb:  2.5 stars
Heroine - Liz:  2 stars
Plot: 2 stars
Steam level:  2 stars
Cliffhanger:  Yes
