This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review

 

I had not read a book by Nikki Rae before, and after checking the blurb of this book I was interested to see if I would like its style, characters and the story.
Know that I haven’t read much paranormal/fantasy books before.

The story is told from one point of view, Casey’s to be more precise. It is a short novella set into chapters.

The novella is mainly about two characters: Casey and Jonah. Casey is a young girl who desperately needs money to help support her family, always putting their needs above hers.
Jonah, an older man whom Casey gets to know on a dating website and then flies out to meet him and be his “donor”.

 

Casey has cancer but her family is struggling badly.. her parents already have enough money problems, she never told them about her illness. After Casey discovers MyTrueMatch.com she decides to become a donor for Jonah. She wasn’t sure what it was exactly, but was willing to do it for her parents’ sake.
Jonah as a vampire in his forties, has a daughter with serious health issues and needs a lung transplant. Surprise! Surprise!! who might the match be? you probably thought right

 

I didn’t feel a connection to any of the characters, sadly and I truly don’t know if I like it or not. there are some stuff that did get me confused: The back and forth between past and present, the ending is definitely ain’t a happy one. If you like tragedies, then you might enjoy this.

I salute Nikki though for tackling such a topic like this, in a paranormal style, with a good writing.
