Vampires mate for life, as the old law instructs, but the last thing on Natalie's mind is a lifetime spent with one man. Her parents' incessant need to see her mated forces her to escape to the mortal realm where she meets two deliciously sexy men, courtesy of her brother's annual Halloween party.
Kingston and Jagger are walking sin and Natalie can't help but indulge in their company. By nightfall, her bloodlust is boiling. She succumbs to temptation and beds both men, only to learn the two humans she planned to feed on are, in fact, vampires, like herself. The mating bond has already begun and there's nothing she can do to stop it. She believed one mate would never suit her, but could she possibly be made for two?
Made for Two is an interesting take on the vampire bonding aspect, which seems to have been implemented in a lot of stories recently. Natalie, a female vampire, is duped into mating with two male vampires: Kingston and Jagger. She's not very happy about it, but what is a vampire to do?
I enjoyed Natalie's character and her fiery personality, as well as her men, Kingston and Jagger. She was very strong, and rolled with the punches. Something we all have to admire. Each man had a very different personality which was just what Natalie needed. Sometimes Jagger seemed a bit... combative is the word that comes to mind. He wasn't as caring and willing to accept the situation as Kingston. But, he eventually comes to the right conclusion that with Natalie is where he needs to be.
I had some issues with this story. At first I was confused as to who was who when it came to Kingston and Jagger. But once I sorted that out I enjoyed the story. I'd also like to mention Luca, Natalie's brother as he has a part in what happens, personally I didn't like him. He seemed like a pompous jerk to me. The attitude he gave concerning his sister's plight left me feeling a little angry.
The plot was direct and had all the right concepts to keep it moving and you reading. The added bonus near the end made my day. This story has an open ending leaving room for a sequel, which I'd like to see. Aside from the above mentioned issues, this was an interesting story that kept my interest until the last page.
