Because the Night (The Night Songs Collection #1)by Kristen Strassel
18-year-old Callie is in Las Vegas trying to find Tristan who is now a member of a vampire rock band. Callie meets Blade. I read the prequel novella Seasons in the Sun first and maybe I would have liked it better if I had read it after this book. This one is completely different. The novella is a young adult sweet summer romance and this one is paranormal romance. Tristan's self-destructive tendencies became so out of hand that he went to Vegas and became a vampire. Callie is still chasing after Tristan though Blade is a welcome distraction. Beware of the cliffhanger ending. 4 stars.
BLURB: Sex, Blood, and Rock n' Roll.
Immortal Dilemma is the hottest band in the Las Vegas vampire rock scene. They draw insatiable fans from around the globe, thanks to a supernatural attraction called Bloodlust. Tristan craved such an opportunity to fill his empty mortal life, and now he has eternity to earn his place along the legends of rock n roll debauchery.
Callie always feared that Tristan’s excesses would get him into trouble, but she never thought they’d lead him to immortality. To reconnect with him, she must weave her way through a world not only she had no idea existed, but does not welcome her.
Blade turned down a spot in Immortal Dilemma after learning what he must sacrifice for that lifestyle. He finds Callie a refreshing change from the girls in the vampire rock scene. When Callie drags Blade back into the world of Immortal Dilemma, his resistance drives her into the waiting arms of Tristan, who shows her the true meaning of Bloodlust.
But the very things that Callie fights so hard to save are the very things that fight to destroy her.
