Introducing The Regiville Tales, a series of full-length novels by Desirae Grove. Each book in this series can be read as a stand-alone, with its own HEA and no cliffhangers!
Eve Willard is a nerdy, socially awkward college student. She’s curvy and shy, and finding a boyfriend is not high on her list of priorities. Besides, she’s sick of the immature guys she’s been meeting at school—she can never find anything in common with them.
On the eve of her nineteenth birthday, she runs into a mysterious stranger who seems to have an old soul. Before she even realizes what’s happening, she’s getting entangled in his shroud of carefully guarded secrets, some of which put her very life in danger.
Theo Dyer has never thought he would fall for a woman again. Humans serve one purpose in his mind—sustenance. When he meets Eve, he can’t understand what’s drawing him to her, deeper and deeper. And before he can stop it, he puts her life in jeopardy, and he must now rescue her, at all costs. Even if it means possibly losing his immortality.
Will they find a way to save each other? And will their growing love survive it all?
I really enjoyed this book. Eve is socially awkward. As she is avoiding people, she runs into a super hot guy who is not like most guys her age. She is highly attracted to Theo and wants to know more about him. Theo doesn't want to fall for Eve. He has a lot of secrets and needs to keep his distance but can't seem to. As the two of them get closer, someone else sets their sights on Eve and it isn't for love. Can Theo keep her safe or will he lose his chance at love?
I really like Eve. She was easy to relate to because she was awkward. She wasn't the life of the party. As a matter of fact, she would rather stay home than go to the party. The guys of her age group don't appeal to her at all, she feels like she was born in the wrong era. Theo is perfect for her because he literally was born in another era. I'm really curious as to what happens with one character in particular from this book and hope to find out in one of the next books!
I enjoyed the twisted mess! It is a 4/5 for me.
