Title: After Midnight: The Beginning (Living After Midnight Book 2)

Author: Trevann Rogers

Genre: LGBT Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance


Book Blurb:


Her taboo relationships give her new life. Now there's a secret worth dying for.


Jewell spent her college years avoiding two threats: sunlight and her sadistic stepfather.


Ria hails from a family of old-world vamps who want her to fall in line. Fat chance, especially since being in that line includes not being gay.


Being in love is easy for Ria and Jewell—they belong together like vodka and tomato juice. Adding a sexy incubus to their union is the hot sauce in their Bloody Mary. The only problem? Jewell's stepfather.


He demands Jewell return home. He's supported her for her entire life, and tuition isn't cheap. She belongs to him. Her debt has come due.


If she refuses, he'll kill her. If she agrees, it could expose a secret that will result in worldwide carnage.


Jewell and Ria have until dawn to decide…


...and it's already After Midnight.


Warning: This book features spicy supernatural creatures, an attempted assault that makes the perp wish he'd just stayed home, and a secret that changes everything.


After Midnight: The Beginning is the 2nd book in the LGBTQ urban fantasy series Living After Midnight. It is a prequel and can be read out of order or as a Happy for Now standalone.


My Review:


Jewell and Ria have their backs against the wall and time is running out. Can their taboo love keep them together or will they have to become something they’re not to please their respective fathers? After Midnight is a feast for paranormal romance readers. The world-building is immersive. The characters are bisexual, colorful and fly off the page. The plot is written with attention to detail while still being full of steamy goodness. The dialogue and action engage the reader. But it’s Jewell and Ria who make After Midnight an unforgettable romance.


It all starts with world-building. The author has built a world that allows the reader’s imagination to soar. Visually, it’s described down to the very last detail. What is familiar to paranormal romance readers gets redefined to fit the author's vision. There are a wide assortment of paranormal creatures and I adored how the author made them fresh and original.


Everything revolves around the main heroines, Jewell and Ria, including narration, POV, and dialogue. These ladies are the heartbeat of this story, and I couldn’t get enough. Individually, they couldn’t be more different but somehow they balance each other out. They are humorous, snarky, and so much fun.


An entertaining paranormal romance, I can’t wait to read more from Trevann Rogers.
