The book flows along pretty well and I liked both main characters although at times I was ready to smack them.

I've discovered Dakota Rebel and i think that she wrote an amazing story: i really liked the love/hate relationship between Jamie and Ethan. Both are extremely "male", stubborn, arrogant but fragile at the same time. It is written at the first person(Jamie),but i could glimpse some of Ethan's feelings. The book flows along pretty well and I liked both main characters although at times I was ready to smack them. Stubborn, quick to take offense and throw a punch and totally closed-mouthed about their feelings they are still a couple of likable guys.

Talk about To Hate and to Hold

I read this paperback in November 2009. It was the first time I've read this author. I checked and know of at least one other paperback book by Dakota Rebel and I definitely plan to get it. I've had this book awhile and kept putting off reading it--WHY?! It was great.

Excellent story. Really really enjoyed. It was funny, tender, with angst. I just didn't anticipate how good it turned out to be. This is a story of how hate turns to love. A twist on the story of putting two people together who don't like each other.

I was looking for the "enemies turned lovers/and friends" gay romance and was recommended this one. I will tell you that this is one of the few storylines where I am ready to be more forgiving if I see what I perceive as weaker characterization, weaker plot,etc, simply because I love this trope so much. But of course there is a limit to what I can endure.

This book was not bad overall, two vampires who think that they hate each other for years end up being bonded and it cannot be broken for a month, and I am sure you know what usually happens in such stories. However several things jumped on me and not in a good way.

First of all miscommunication for years, eh Jamie spends years hating Ethan because he thinks his family murdered his parents to take over the clan. Um, they did not and all that it takes for him to stop hating Ethan and his family (or stop think that he hated them) is for Ethan to tell him that his family is investigating Jamie's parents deaths. Really? Seriously? I get that they did not want the fact that they are investigating to become public knowledge, but why not to summon Jamie and tell him all that? Seems to me rather fake conflict for the conflict sake, especially because let me stress after one conversation Jamie does not hate them anymore.

And of course the fact that Ethan and Jamie just choose to express their love that way and everybody knows it but them. Again, really, seriously, no. I guess Big Misunderstandings are just not my cup of tea, because I think that characters often end up being stupid because of that.

I enjoyed them thinking that they hate each other and fighting and then having hot sex, but I can only endure that much before wanting to smack them across their heads and say stop it idiots.

Usually I despise manipulative characters but I cannot begrudge Queen Tara's interference much here, seriously.

Sex was hot though and if you do not think characters are acting like idiots for the most part of the book you may like it.

Oh and them being vampires? It is all very civilized, so no real bloodsuckers here, only civilized ones and they have civilized arrangements with human volunteers who gave them their blood in small doses. I cannot say that this aspect bothered me much because real vampires could be hit or miss for me (too much blood I usually do not care for), but if you are looking for real vampires in a sense that they hunt, I am afraid you will not find any here.

And yes, I agree with three star reviewers, Ethan and Jamie seemed like the same person who was cloned to me, I did not see much difference in their personalities. Oh well.
to me this book was alright and yes i know i will read it again. you know how you come across these books that have chapters that jump and don't run smoothly. well this is that kinda book. the chapters themselves seemed ok sometimes a little rushed. the two main characters seemed like the same guy personality wise. jamie would say something then ethan would say the exact same lines on the next page. i felt like it was just one character. the sex scenes were probably only two paragraphs long each time and there were only three pages between. the characters to me didn't communicate, yeah i like one or two of the fights they had in the beginning. but they can't just throw punches and mean words around all the time without communicating just a little bit of their thoughts.

one good thing about this book is that it doesn't have all that mushy crappy words, i think that is why i will read this book again.

i do still feel like i missed out with this book.

I like the ideas for a lot of these romantic m/m stories but am so often disappointed in the execution thereof. Miss Dakota kept the romance interesting, kept the story moving--very encouraging was the absence of "love-talk" that nauseates and tries-really-hard-to-be-funny but isn't. It's been several weeks, but as I recall the ending got sloppy in this regard, but it's minor by then. I enjoyed it and was very pleasantly surprised.
*Spoilers* I am so tired of reading vampire novels that have them all loose and sleeping with everyone in sight just because they are immortal and get 'bored'. It's nice to read about two vampires who can and want to be bonded and commented. Now this doesn't happen fast, in fact these two men hate each other, so watching them finally coming to terms for these feelings they have for one another is very very sweet. I loved this book and would recommend it to anyone who loves romance novels not just gay romance novels!
World-building wasn't strong but the characters and their situation was believable. The paranormal aspect added to the storyline and didn't distract from the plot. The characters were likable and the sex scenes easy to understand and hot. Overall one of the better vampire romances I've read lately.

The characters didn't really feel like vampires. I mean, the society was established as being structured different, but the personalities and character traits were all human. It was almost like they were vampires just so the author could use the bonding trope and royalty idea. Having said that, I really did like the characters. They were engaging and I wanted to know what was going to happen to them. I'm not a fan of first person POV, but I guess I shouldn't hold that against the author. It's a compelling story and aside from that detail, I really enjoyed reading it and had a hard time putting it down. I'm not sure why the characters used condoms if they were sharing each other's blood. That seemed pretty incongruous. I really did like seeing two characters who ""disliked"" each other grow to care about each other.
