I liked A Darker Dream OK, but all of the things that annoyed me about that book were better in this one. One thing I enjoyed about Midnight Embrace was that Analisa had a stronger personality and stood her ground a little more than Rhianna of A.D.D. She was never afraid of Alasandro or of telling him what was on her mind. M.E. also wasn't as repetitive or wishy-washy as A.D.D. I liked that this book had a villian for Alasandro to contend with, and not just him constantly at war with himself as was Rayven in A.D.D.
I have read 3 Ashley vampire romances so far and really like her writing style and characters. However, there are too many similarities between all her books. I wish she would branch out into new situations, time periods, conflicts, etc. The base plots always seem the same - vampire takes in fair young girl who was otherwise destitute and they fall in love. Then comes the pages upon pages of - I love her but I'm afraid I'll hurt her, she has to leave, I love her but she can't have a normal life with me, she has to leave, I want her to meet other people and get married, she has to leave, etc, etc, etc. I love the vampire romance subgenre and Ashley's stlyle so I'll keep reading, but a little variation would be nice!
All in all, this book is well written with good character development. Give it a try!
