REVIEW - Love Me to Death (Underveil #1) by Marissa Clarke

The Book
Release Date: 28 October 2014
Goodreads Link

Medical research scientist Elena Arcos has always lived her life under the radar, which is not easy to do when you live with the craziest woman in the world. But eccentric Aunt Uza is a picnic compared to the other people who enter her orderly life after she is shot in a convenience store robbery.

Elena finds herself rocketed from comfortable predictability to supernatural insanity courtesy of her own private angel of death who happens to have the sexiest accent on earth and a body to match. Her death angel is convinced she’s some kind of freaky half vampire thing and that her deceased dad was the real deal: a blood sucking monster. 

Yeah, right. She’ll play along, but then she doesn’t have much choice seeing how as the guy claims to be some immortal law enforcer and has taken her prisoner.

* * *

Nikolai Itzov had expected to fight the urge to torture the progeny of his father’s murderer, but he’d never anticipated battling the urge to kiss her her.

As a Slayer, an elite law enforcer descended from Azrael himself, his charge from the Underveil General is clear: Kill her or die. He has been told she is one of them--an Undead. Nothing but a parasite to be destroyed. But he has been told wrong. 

Nikolai and Elena find themselves in a life and death battle to stop a plot designed to lift the Underveil and enslave humans. 

With her analytical mind and his centuries of training and experience, they might be able to foil the plot with their lives and maybe their hearts intact. But in order to succeed, he must help her become the very thing he hates the most: an Undead.

My Opinion  5 STARS

**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This books packs a lot in with the paranormal genre with many different species portrayed in the book.

I loved that at first our MC Elena freaked out with everything she found out, but eventually came to terms with how fast her life had turned around after having been shot.

Nikolai is your typical alpha male who is used to everyone, women included doing as he says due to his position as a Slayer.  Unfortunately the dirty mouthed, sexy  alpha gets much more than he bargained for when he meets Elena.

Elena after overcoming her initial fright and after having met the lovely Stefan begins to more and more show her opinion and say what she thinks back to Nikolai.

Aunt Uza is a fabulously man crazy woman, I loved it when she was in a scene eying up the man candy and flirting with them all.

I really look forward to hearing who will be next in the series as this is a wonderfully written book.
