Book Review 'The Warm Taste by Julie Leijon'

The Warm Taste by Julie Leijon 2*

Book Blurb: Can a dark creature find a home in the light?
Robin appears to be a quiet, attractive young man, but the exterior hides his true vampire nature: ageless, unchanging, and bloodthirsty. His current obsession is Martin, the personable and generous owner of a coffee shop, The Warm Taste.
All Robin’s careful plans to remain unnoticed are ruined, however, when Martin asks him out on a date. Can Robin really have something so good and sweet as an ordinary relationship, after such a long existence of cold loneliness?
And if things fall apart, and Robin goes back to his old ways, will Martin survive it?

My Review: I received an ARC from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. I was actually surprised I didn't enjoy this one as much as I expected to. It's not that it was a bad story, in fact it was quite sweet, but it just didn't hold my interest and it has taken reading a few pages between reading other books to get through it. I think it was partially that I was probably not in the right mood and partially that there was too much introspection about immortal life and stuff from one of the main characters. I might give it another try when I'm next in a vampire story mood and see if that improves my opinion.
