Book Review of Black Bullet by L. D. Rose

Fledgling vampire Jonathan Kerr has just met his match.

Not even his past life as a former Marine and FBI agent could prepare him for the battle against the monster inside him, struggling to take hold. After an old nemesis of the Senary surfaces in Brooklyn, unleashing chaos and terror in the battered borough, Jon sets out to take him down. Instead, he ends up with far more than he bargained for when he clashes with the beautiful half-vampire hybrid, Lawan Knight.

After escaping near death and suffering unspeakable horror at the hands of vampires, Lawan trusts no one, regardless of species. In between bouts of drunken stupor, her only goal is to exterminate all those who've wronged her, including every member of Jon's vampire bloodline. But Jon's soulful eyes and quick smile crawls under her skin, transforming her black and white world into a hazy shade of gray.

As the days rapidly grow darker, Jon and Lawan turn to one another, but their inner demons threaten to tear them apart. The only way either of them will survive is if they overcome their greatest fear--

Love.

*I was given a copy of the novel in exchange for my honest review*

First off, this was a great continuation of Releasing the Demons. It can be read on it's own, but I would always suggest starting at the beginning of a series to get a better grasp of the world the story is in. I liked Jon from the first book and was excited to see where his story would lead. Lawan made a great female lead and my heart felt for her so bad! After all the pain she had been through it almost brings tears to your eyes to know she has a man like Jon. 
Their love story is just as steamy as Blaze and Valerie in Releasing the Demons, but I felt it was more tender and just like the book before it, had a great natural progression. This novel is just as exciting and full of action as the first and is a great second novel for this series! I really hope and am looking forward to reading more, wanting to know more about the other hybrid brothers and the possible love interests they might have. 
This novel is R rated as well, so keep that in mind. It's an action packed love story and has a great pace. If you love paranormal romance, and vampires especially then this book needs to be added to your list!
