Drink Deep (Chicagoland Vampires Series #5)

Drink Deep - Chloe Neill 3.5 starsWarning - may contain mild spoilers....OK. I had high hopes for this one. I mean, after the events of the last book, or rather the last agonizing 10 pages; the author had to give us something, right? Well…it wasn’t enough. It really felt like something was lacking in the book. I couldn’t stay focused on the story. Many reviewers have said it and I’ll reiterate: Not enough Ethan!Sure, Jonah steps in to fill the void. Jonah is great – he’s gorgeous, he’s smart, he’s an incredible guy. There’s a few touching scenes. Jonah just doesn’t have the spark or the presence. Jonah makes a great partner, but not a love interest. At least not now. A few things drove me crazy:1. Frank. Why was he allowed so much freedom? Why didn’t Malik stand up to him?2. Mayor Kowalcyzk struck me as a shrill, power hungry, easily influenced character. How did she get under the influence of McKetrick?3. Tate – What is he? I found that the book lagged a little with all the excitement saved up for the last third. Then poof! A kind of anti-climactic ending. This has the feel of a filler book. Nevertheless, I was intrigued enough by the ending to want the next book right away. I hate when that happens. Check out my joint review with Erika on Badass Book Reviews.
