Once Burned - Jeaniene Frost Once Burned (finally) tells Vlad’s story – a character featured in Jeaniene Frost’s (JF) Night Huntress Series Books. In this first installment of a series, Vlad has an age old enemy (Mihaly Szilagy) he believed was dead, threatening him and the people closest to him.First on Szilagy’s list is Leila, Vlad’s lover, who has special powers any one – supernatural or not – would kill to have on their side. Through a freak accident in her childhood, Leila channels electrical currents and when touching objects, she can discern the past, present, and future from them.But Vlad pulls out all the stops to keep her safe. He lives up to his name, taking no prisoners as he searches for Szilagy and his men before they find him. In classic JF style, Once Burned features a thrilling, non-stop action-packed ride, filled with hott sexxy scenes that will leave you hungry for more.-------------------------------------Personal Thoughts:I absolutely loved this book! JF is one of my favorite authors and hands down my favorite character of hers is Vlad. I was so excited for the release of this book and JF did not disappoint bringing Vlad front and center for once.But though the book was great there are two reasons I didn’t give Once Burned 5 Kisses.1) Leila. The only reason I read this book was for Vlad and I was disappointed we never get to see his POV throughout the whole book. JF wasted too much time on Leila, when in actuality the only character we wanted to know more of was Vlad. I really hope the next book in this series features Vlad’s POV, or more of him, otherwise I don’t see much of a future for this series for us die hard Vlad fans.2) Loins. Why, oh, why was this word used every time a sexxy scene came up? Was this an editing slip, or did JF ignore the memo to find another word? Well, whoever is responsible needs to be sent back to Words Never To Be Used During Sexxy Scenes 101 ASAP. I cringed every time this word came up.Other than these two issues, Once Burned is a great read, and the sexxy scenes were everything I expected from Vlad. I hope it’s not too long of a wait for the next book. :)4.5 Kisses http://readourlipsblog.blogspot.com/2012/07/review-once-burned-by-jeaniene-frost.html#more
