Kiss of Midnight - Lara Adrian
I've been hearing from several people (including my mom) how great the Breed series is by Lara Adrian. After reading the first book in the series, Kiss of Midnight, I'm not sure what everyone's raving about. I thought it a mediocre book that doesn't really add anything to the vampire romance subgenre. Sure, there are aliens, but other than that? Eh.

Plus the last 30 pages or so nearly strained my poor little eyeballs because I just couldn't stop rolling them. Sappy dialogue, a TSTL heroine, and an jerk for a hero. I thought the characters were well done other than the last minute (and completely unbelievable) attitude adjustment for Lucan. I just don't see this as anything other than a passable but not wow-worthy vampire book. Maybe the newer books in the series are better?
