"Don’t Sweat.  Don’t Laugh.  Don’t draw attention to yourself.  And most of all, whatever you do, do not fall in love with one of them.

Gene is different from everyone else around him.  He can’t run with lightning speed, sunlight doesn’t hurt him and he doesn’t have an unquenchable lust for blood.  Gene is a human, and he knows the rules.  Keep the truth a secret.  It’s the only way to stay alive in a world of night—a world where humans are considered a delicacy and hunted for their blood.

When he’s chosen for a once in a lifetime opportunity to hunt the last remaining humans, Gene’s carefully constructed life begins to crumble around him.  He’s thrust into the path of a girl who makes him feel things he never thought possible—and into a ruthless pack of hunters whose suspicions about his true nature are growing. Now that Gene has finally found something worth fighting for, his need to survive is stronger than ever—but is it worth the cost of his humanity?"

This is another amazing out of the box book! I felt so intrigued and my hear pounded so hard while reading this.

What I loved most about this book is the plot. We have a human who has pretended to be a vamp for years. I am so impressed with his wisdom in this area and the way he able to actually make himself think he is what he is.And some points in the book his mind set is so perfect, I even tended to forget that he is human. The plot really build up to some heart pounding moments. There were times where I was thinking," That's it. He got caught" and "Go! Run for your life!" LOL. As you can tell, I so got into this book.

The characters of the book were so much more than what they seem. I really loved how this part of the book was written. You think you know a characters and then BAM! They pull a doozy on you. I am happy to report that all the characters are not only easily to get into, but that they will surprise the heck out of you!

The is a love interest that I didn't think will form. It was a good love that started off slow with a friendship and suspicions, then totally form so beautifully. Trust me, you'll love it.

The Hunt is an grand adventure that you will not want to put down! Extreme measures  in survival, this deadly game of cat and mouse will have you at the edge of your seat. Fresh and addicting, The Hunt will entice you!

I give it 4 BITES!

Happy Reading!
