Sunrise at Sunset by Jaz Primo

Book Description:
When is a bloodthirsty predator the best protection against a psychotic killer?
When the predator is both a vampire...and the woman you love.

“We vampires are focused and tend to shape our own realities.”
My name is Katrina Rawlings, and I am a vampire. I declare that with neither pride nor ego. I am simply nature’s most dangerous predator. On occasion, it’s a very valuable quality. It helped me protect Caleb Taylor one day when he was very young. But that single, traumatic day is behind him now; wiped from his memory, or so I hope.
Caleb has finally matured into a rather striking young man, and believe me, I like what I see. I’ll readily admit that there are issues for us to confront and overcome, though a sense of mutual commitment isn’t one of them. I’m feeling hopeful for our future together, in fact. But an adversary from my past has returned to haunt me, and she’s trying to get back at me through Caleb. That was her first...and last...mistake. I’ll protect my Caleb at all costs, and I’ll make her regret the day she was born.
So, I suppose that I’m not just a vampire. I’m about to become someone’s worst nightmare!
My Thoughts:
This was a highly entertaining book. Katrina is a vampire and a bit tired of life. She makes some intriguing decisions that lead her to a house in the middle of the woods and there she meets a small boy, Caleb. She saves him but removes his memory of the events. Throughout his life, she keeps tabs on him and now that he is grown, it is time to check in, in person, one last time....except she never expected the intense feelings she would have for him! Now, she must once again keep him safe, this time from someone from her world...
I absolutely love that the roles in this book are reversed from the typical 'hero' book. Katrina is the kick butt, strong one while Caleb well, isn't. It took me a bit to get used to the switch and while Caleb isn't the 'strong' one in the relationship, he's not a wimp either. I like that the storyline just flows and drags you along for the ride. It is definitely the start to a good series and I'm ready for the next one :)
I rate this a 4/5. It is a good, original read.
