Vein of Love by R. Scarlett Book Review

R. Scarlett has brought a masterpiece to this world in the new adult book, Vein In Love. A new dark and addicting story, bringing me to the edge of my seat every time the demons come to haunt Molly and Tensley. Honestly, I couldn’t get enough of this story and now I have to wait until God knows when for the second book that I’m sure will get readers addicted as well when they start the sequel, Body of the Crime.

BLURB:”Darkness isn’t all one shade, sweetheart.” Three centuries ago, Molly Darling’s ancestors signed a contract in blood—daemon blood—to protect themselves from harm. On the eve she turns nineteen, Molly leaves for her birthday party against her parent’s wishes, sick of their warnings about her “betrothal to a demon.” Except that she’s very much betrothed, and he’s very much a demon—one who’s only agreed to the nuptials to steal Molly’s ancient daemon powers. Brash, arrogant, and built like a Greek god, Tensley Knight keeps showing up to save Molly from otherworldly attacks, only to insult her a moment later. As Molly learns more about the demon world, she realizes two things: that her family’s safety depends on a successful marriage, while any chance of freedom she’ll ever have calls for Tensley’s demise. Yet sometimes Molly spots a tortured soul beyond those liquid grey eyes, and there’s no denying the way her skin tingles when Tensley touches it. In Vein of Love, safety requires sacrifice, foe becomes lover, and one must decide whether to kiss…or to kill.

Vein in Love can be considered as a paranormal-romance, due to its dark and mysterious level of intensity that I have not read in a very long time. Penelope Douglas has always taken the crown for “Paranormal Romance Queen” in her book (which is also my favorite) Corrupt, from the Devil’s Night series. But slowly throughout this story, R. Scarlett has taken Penelope’s place in such an intense magnitude of darkness and light mixed together throughout this story.

The demon in this story, Tensley (male protagonist,) not only provides the reader with a massive amount of hate and love at the same time, for being the character he is, but he also provides a side of hope when he first encounters with Molly (the female protagonist.) She became an important asset to the demons ever since birth, and her presence became even more important when their chemistry become obvious to both of them. Their attraction for each other is none like any other. Their dark momentos, bring them together in an aphotic way that gives the reader an insight as to what to expect more from the story itself, and also from R. Scarlett as well and her future writing.

As to the other characters in this story, they brought a light to the dark prha of the story’s love affair with Tensley and Molly. September, Illya, Stella, Fallen, Beau, and last but not least, the less greater than others, Cree… Oh dear… I seriously wanted someone to just grand my arms so I didn’t have to go and destroy the pages in my book every time Cree showed up! sighs But I stayed calmed…

In general, Vein In Love captivated me in every sense. I’m really feeling like this series has a great potential, which is great for R. Scarlett as this is the very first book she has published. I cannot wait to write a review for the sequel, Body of the Crime whenever it comes out!

Goodreads rating: FIVE DEMON STARS
