Taste by Kate Evangelista

Book Description:
At Barinkoff Academy, there's only one rule: no students on campus after curfew. Phoenix McKay soon finds out why when she is left behind at sunset. A group calling themselves night students threaten to taste her flesh until she is saved by a mysterious, alluring boy. With his pale skin, dark eyes, and mesmerizing voice, Demitri is both irresistible and impenetrable. He warns her to stay away from his dangerous world of flesh eaters. Unfortunately, the gorgeous and playful Luka has other plans.

When Phoenix is caught between her physical and her emotional attraction, she becomes the keeper of a deadly secret that will rock the foundations of an ancient civilization living beneath Barinkoff Academy. Phoenix doesn’t realize until it is too late that the closer she gets to both Demitri and Luka the more she is plunging them all into a centuries old feud.

My Thoughts:
I devoured this book!  Phoenix broke the one rule at her ultra private students on campus after dark.  Turns out there is a really good reason for that!  When Demitri saves her life, she is drawn to him and the strange 'night students' that are at the school.  Luka has his eye on Phoenix as well but why?  Dray brings her an offer she can't refuse and it changes the world as she knows it. 
I absolutely fell in love with all the characters in this book.  Demitri, Luka, Drey, Phoenix....all of them are wonderful.  The whole world you get to explore is great and alive!  It is a wonderful dilemma facing Phoenix--it just fits with her back story perfectly.  Loved the whole book!
This is a 5/5.  I loved it and if you are into paranormal, you will too!
