New To Me Tuesday! Kade's Dark Embrace By Kym Grosso

I know I love discovering new authors or series to read so that is what I hope these posts will do for you!  Is there someone new I should try?  If so let me know and I will! 

An erotic paranormal romance...
After a series of girls are ritualistically murdered on the cold streets of Philadelphia, seasoned detective, Sydney Willows, is forced to work with sexy, alpha vampire, Kade Issacson. While working the case, Sydney finds herself inexplicably drawn to Kade, fighting the passion she feels towards him. Kade, determined to solve the case and mete out justice, is captivated by the independent, fiery detective. As he attempts to protect her from a very real murderer, Kade grows concerned that the beautiful, but very human detective, could easily end up dead should she tangle with supernatural forces that are beyond her control.
The investigation leads them into a dark and dangerous world, deep in the heart of New Orleans, where together, they search for the perpetrators of the Voodoo killings. Sydney soon becomes the target of the killer and ends up fighting for her life and love in the Big Easy. If she makes it out alive, will she give into the intoxicating desire she feels for Kade?

Warning: This book contains several love scenes and is intended for adult readers only.

As a huge paranormal romance fan I am always on the lookout for a new paranormal romance book and/or series to read.  Vampire, shifters, demons, if it is good I will read it.  I had been told by a couple people to try Kade’s Dark Embrace by Kym Grosso so I finally decided to give it a go.  While I enjoyed it overall I had hoped to enjoy it more  than I did.  That being said I will be continuing on with the series because this book has made me curious to see if the books get any better as well as seeing if the character’s that were introduced in this book will be in future ones as well as prominent roles.

I think what caused me the most issues was Sydney’s character herself throughout the book.  She never really softened or stopped her I am a cop you listen to me attitude even when she was proven to be placed in situations that were way above her capabilities.  She comes across as very bitchy, at times disrespectful and very judgmental while at the same time having no problems spreading her legs to whoever is available.  Is that a rough assessment of her character, yes it is and I mean no disrespect by that in any way but she had nothing to me at least that made her redeeming in my eyes, maybe if she is in future books we will see a different side of her or I at least hope so.

I liked Kade’s character although I do wish he would have shown more of the I am the leader mentality that we would have expected from someone, especially a vampire, in his position of power.  I think he allowed Sydney to walk all over him at times and really didn’t show his true dominance that we could sense lingering underneath.  Kade is sexy and he is a bit dark and I wouldn’t mind him making me a meal, I kept reading for him and the secondary characters as I hope that we will get books for them in  the future.

While this book has been out for a while now I do feel that it feel trap to the new book in a series syndrome and I am hoping that since more books have been released that they will improve on what could be a very good paranormal series that this book whore could really love if done right.
