Daphne Foster is a substitute teacher stuck in an English class, waiting for that dreaded parent-teacher conference. With much preparation and anxiety, she encounters the unforgettable Charlie Cross. His charm and good looks, win her over but rumors of his involvement with organized crime make his continued disappearances disturbing. In walks Heathcliff Vanderpool, creating a love triangle of unusual sorts. Unknown to Daphne, Heathcliff and Charlie are old friends: Older than she could have imagined. With Charlie away on business, Daphne and Heathcliff discover a passion between them lying beneath the surface. As their souls link, pulling away from Charlie becomes next to impossible. Will his involvement in organized crime consume them both before she's able to get free? When you become "linked," the choice may not be your own.
Vampires, werewolves, witches and humans collide in Linked by Judy Serrano. Linked really begins to pick up steam around the 20% point. This book is a bit of Fifty Shades of Grey meets Twilight with a splash of True Blood's Sookie. It's got a very taboo kind of tone
The biggest challenge with this read is with the main character. Daphne Foster has a propensity for getting herself involved with the wrong men. She was fickle with her affections and lacked the ability to focus on just one suitor. A problem every woman should have, right? Serrano can most certainly write a scene fraught with sexual tension. Dirty girl!
Will there be any additional books in the series? The ending felt like it could go either way. And this reader is definitely interested in seeing where Serrano's bold and steamy story-line takes readers next.
