Book Review: Unleash (Vampire Erotic Theatre Romance Series Book 6) (ARC) by Felicity Heaton

A powerful vampire lost deep in his bloodlust, Snow is a savage animal, mindless with rage and a thirst for violence, and trapped with no hope of awakening from an endless nightmare… until a song draws him up from the abyss, restoring his sanity but leaving him haunted by the sweet feminine scent of lilies and snow, and fragmented familiar lyrics.

When the mysterious and beautiful songstress reappears in Snow’s room at Vampirerotique, she awakens a fierce protective streak and stirs dark desires that drive him to claim her as his female, even when he knows his touch will destroy her innocence.

A single forbidden taste is all it takes to unleash emotions in Aurora that she shouldn’t possess, tearing her between duty and desire, and luring her into surrendering to her wildfire passion and embracing hungers that burn so hotly they threaten to consume them both.

One act of kindness can lead to one thousand acts of sin though, each a black mark against the bearer’s soul and another grain of sand that slips through an hourglass. The clock is ticking and time is almost up. Can beauty save the beast?
Unleash is book 6 in Felicity Heaton's Vampire Erotic Theatre series It is the story of Snow, one of the most damaged, violent and unpredictable vampires I've ever come across as a reader. This is my first Felicity Heaton novel and I had high hopes for it. It didn't let me down. 

Unleash isn't a warm and fuzzy paranormal romance where the tortured vampire meets his match, falls in love and battles the big bad who wants to take his happy ending away. Snow is the big bad that is trying to prevent a happy ending. He suffers from bloodlust and the uncontrollable urge to maim and kill that comes with it. He's succumbed to it before, resulting in a massive and tragic personal loss for Snow. 

Heaton drags Snow's past out in painful pieces that serve as a reminder that this is a character who may not be able to be saved and if he can be saved, it is going to be a lifelong battle with many setbacks. Snow is unpredictable, almost as if he has two separate personalities inside of him. It's ironic that the chance at saving his dark, blood stained soul comes in the form of a curious angel. While Aurora may not be the physical butt kicker that readers are used to in paranormal romances, it doesn't mean she can't hold her own with Snow. She's quiet in her defiance, intelligent and ever hopeful.

Snow and Aurora's relationship is based more on an emotional connection, rather than a sexual one. Sure they're attracted to one another but with Snow being so unpredictable, he keeps his distance from Aurora for awhile, instead giving them both a chance to get to know each other and establish trust. Something I gather is very new for Snow. It's a great balance to an otherwise dark, tumultuous story. There's never a dull moment with this pair, they're each others' salvation, as unlikely as it seems.

For readers who want to give this series a try, it's best that you start at the beginning. Technically, each book can be a stand alone, but trying to remember who is mated to whom and what their connection to Snow is made reading Unleash a little slower. Something that probably wouldn't be an issue if I had read the series from the beginning.
