**I received a copy of this book, from the author, in exchange for a honest review.**

Anya Moon only has one personal rule: Don't date vampires. She never dreamed the price for breaking it could be her life. 
In his five hundred years as an assassin, Jarrett Campbell has never gone beyond a one-night stand with a woman. As a vampire, he knows a lasting relationship with a Norm is out of the question. But Anya Moon is just too intriguing to pass up. A two-week fling can't hurt as long as they both know how it will end… right? 
Caught up in a romance he never expected, Jarrett forgets that his life as an assassin is never safe... especially when one of his past targets returns from the dead. Now he is in a race against time to save Anya, but is her life worth his death?

Immortal Moon is the second book in this series. We follow the middle Moon sister Anya and her budding relationship with the uber sexy vampire Jarrett. The book opens just how any book should, showcasing how kick ass Anya is. We read about her taking down guys twice her size and walking away from it. I love reading about female leads that are like this. No one wants to read about some weak female. We want ones that can stand on their own. 
Anya doesn't seek out her relationship with Jarrett, it just happens. Maybe it was meant to be. Even though she has a "No Vampire" rule,  secretly you think she made the rule because she is waiting on a certain brown eyed vampire. 
If you have read the previous book, you read about the two of them meeting. Now we follow them as they try to start a relationship. Because of Jarrett's job and Anya's apprehension, a relationship doesn't seem to be in the stars. When a enemy shows their face, a new path is created that may further end any attempt at a relationship. 

We do get some background into Anya's story. She has a tortured past. Thanks to Pinky, she was able to leave the situation. 

I loved this book and felt that it was even better than it's predecessor. This book focuses more on romance rather than suspense. Lets face it, we all like some steamy romance. 
Stevens does a great job in creating this story. It's not like most dystopian novels, there is still a functioning structure to the city involved. She is able to bring in a lot of aspects of pop culture to make the story readable to the readers. I loved that Jarrett referred to himself as Batman when Anya asked about his powers. Stevens paints a vivid picture with her writing. It engages the audience and keeps them hanging on till the end. 

Overall this was a very enjoyable book. I was a little sad at the end because it is a cliffhanger. =( I knew it was inevitable but I still don't like them. I highly recommend that you read this series if you haven't done so yet. 

5 out of 5 Stars
Cliffhangers be damned!!
