Review: Beneath Manhattan Skies by Emma Meade

Beneath Manhattan Skies
Beneath Manhattan Skies by Emma Meade
Publication Date: November 2013
Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance
Format: kindle
Source: author
November in New York is cold but full of possibility for college freshman Erin Harris. When her twin brother, Nick, shows up on her doorstep for a surprise visit, Erin is delighted. Unfortunately, Nick’s arrival coincides with the discovery of a body outside her apartment building, a body drained of blood. Right away, Nick assumes vampires are involved. He’s not exactly their biggest fan since Erin dated one in high school.

Juggling nosy roommates, a first date with a gorgeous guy from college and a brother on a Van Helsing kick is enough to keep any nineteen year old girl busy - And then Erin’s old flame walks back into her life.

Is Erin destined to be caught up in supernatural shenanigans, or will she choose a different path?

~My Thoughts~
*was provided with a copy from the author for my honest opinions*

When I was presented with this latest short from Emma, I was so excited! But then I read from a review that this is actually a sequel, I got a little scared. However once I started reading it that fear was washed away. Emma did great at giving background detail when needed be, so I never really felt lost. Though this story makes me crave to read the first book, Under the Desert Moon.
Emma writes amazing atmosphere, you’ll be hooked in seconds! Her story telling is easy to get drawn into, the world building is hypnotizing, and you’ll be desperate to know what happens next! I enjoyed this vampire tale! It was interesting, and I was intrigued on who was doing the killings. The whole entire time I was guessing who it might be and wondering if there was going to be a big twist (but that’s just my writing style haha). But no matter what, I honestly didn’t see where this was going, which was a great thing!
Overall this was an action packed novella and one cast of characters I would love to read about again! I think the only thing I really felt left out of was the romance. There are two guys that want Erin’s heart, however one guy is an ex, an ex that broke his promise and never came to her when she got to New York. So throughout the book I was rooting for the other guy. So because I don’t really know Erin’s and ex James’s love story, I couldn’t really get into the romance of the book. But nonetheless, I couldn’t get enough of this! Emma has once again swept me away!
