Kresnik vampire slayer, Corbin Hamilton, has vowed to avenge his father's death and kill the prince of the Red Serpent clan. Instead, he's stuck with guard duty for vampire Johan Maier who is becoming human, thanks to a new serum. What's worse, the sexual attraction between him and his prisoner is getting harder to ignore.
Johan Maier's chance to regain his humanity is a dream come true. If he only he could get Corbin to trust him, they would have a chance at love. Yet, his vampire powers are getting stronger instead of weaker, his blood markers morphing into something that isn't quite human.
As Corbin hunts the prince, Johan insists on aiding him. He secretly vows to protect Corbin even if it means his death.
“Babysitting a vampire wasn’t Corbin’s idea of a good time; he’d rather kill them.” I have always wondered if hate could really turn into love. Can two alpha men put aside their hate for each other and maybe find love?
I would recommend reading the first book in the series, Last Chance, because it will show just how Corbin Hamilton, a Kresnik warrior (Vampire slayer), ended up babysitting Johan, a bloodsucker.
I enjoyed reading Fighting Chance for many reasons. One of the main reasons was the battle between two alpha males - sworn enemies - who are trying to live under the same roof. Other aspects I liked are the unique and different twists contained in this story as compared to other vampire and slayer tales I've read in the past.
I do love reading a tale where the happy ever after does not come easy. The two main characters are constantly fighting their attraction to each other in hopes of crushing any developing feelings while living together. It was really entertaining watching the banter between Corbin and Johan especially when they do things just to agitate the other. It left me chuckling.
However, there is a sweet side to both men that they let show in some of the scenes. It made it hard for me to decide which one to like the most. The heat and temptation the two fight against while in each other’s company made me laugh out loud a time or two. Watching them deal with the sexual frustration kept me on the edge of my chair throughout the book.
Don’t let this one pass you by if you're looking for a well written paranormal romance where the fight to hide their attraction and growing feelings is a battle worth reading. This book definitely gives some brilliant new twists to an age old story, and a lot of sizzle to keep you turning the pages.
