#WOTR20 – #Review – Because the Night (The Night Songs Collection, #1) by Kristen Strassel

Because the Night (Night Songs Book 1)

Meet the vampire hellbent on destruction and the girl who will do anything to save him, set to a hard rock soundtrack in the hot Las Vegas night…
Sex, blood, and rock n’ roll.

Immortal Dilemma is the hottest show in Vegas and Tristan Trevosier is their biggest star. But to me, he’s the guy who broke my heart and then showed up on stage claiming to be a vampire.

Tristan says I won’t understand his new life. He won’t let me in. That’s how I met Blade, a human with a mysterious connection to Immortal Dilemma. Blade is willing to give me everything Tristan won’t.
But I can’t let him go.

The true darkness of Tristan’s world terrifies me, and I fear for his life. Now Blade’s gone missing and I have to choose—save my mortal friend or abandon my immortal love.

This book is full of twists and turns you won’t see coming, and characters you won’t soon forget.–Tam, Amazon reviewer
As I read the last page GASPING shaking the book thinking to myself if I shake it more words would magically appear but note to self NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. I REALLY LOVED THIS BOOK.–Karina, Amazon reviewer
Leave yourself some time when you begin this story. It will draw you in, and you must find out how it ends before you can put it down again.–KSon, Amazon reviewer

Vampire rock scene, in VEGAS! Callie goes to Vegas with her cousin to see her ex-boyfriend who has become famous from a reality tv show and is also the star of the band, Immortal Dilemma. She thinks she needs to save him as he is spiraling out of control with addictions. What she doesn’t realize is that he is a vampire and there are other circumstances that keep him from leaving. In the midst of this she meets Blade. He is into music too and seems to be a pretty great guy. She spontaneously decides to stay in Vegas instead of going home. This is the first part of where I start to lose Callie. She is 18 and decides to stay in Vegas. But ok, she gets a job and things are going ok. The story keeps going and she is falling in love with Blade but can’t stay away from Tristan, her ex and vampire star. I got back into the story with the push and pull that she had to deal with between Tristan and Blade. At this point since she is spending more time with Tristan we start to understand his situation better. Things go from weird to crazy and to just plain terrible for Callie. As Callie tries to fight for her life, and the others she cares about, she gets into some super bad situations. I listened to this in an audiobook. The narrator was ok, I wanted to like her but sometimes I think that the narrator made Callie sound even more whiny and undecided with what she wanted to do. The story is good but sometimes it seemed like it took a long time to get to where it needed to be. I plan to continue the series because there was a huge twist at the end of the book and I have to find out what happens!
