With the help of her partner, Shane, and her crazy family, Isabel struggles to get to the truth, unmask a killer, and deal with her growing feelings for not one, but two, of the sexy, undead men vying for her heart. Just when things are finally falling into place, a huge revelation takes her out of the frying pan… and straight into the fire.
After reading the first book, Chasing Daybreak, and its introduction of Isabel, Shane, and Xavier, along with many other characters that I grew to like in the Dark of Night series debut, I knew I wanted to read the second one because of how much I found myself drawn into the story. Like the first book, this second book continues the combination of urban fantasy and paranormal romance. Ranae didn't disappoint, and I liked this book just as much if not a little more than the first one. This goes a little more in depth as far as Shane and Isabel's past, and I liked that it's told from dual perspectives.There's still a lot of tension between the two, and I really want to read the third book in this series to find out what's going to happen next. I'm just sad I'm going to have to wait until next year. Of course, Isabel has a mystery to solve, and I found that part of the story to be incredible with what happened and the introduction of ghosts.
Over the course of Chasing Midnight, there are many times I wanted to slap Xavier. I remember saying he sort of won me over in the first book, but in this one, my viewpoint shifted. There were so many things he said and did that left me with a less than favorable impression of him, and he came across as something of a jerk. So, if there's a relationship triangle, I'm firmly in Shane's corner.
Loved this book, and easily 5/5 platypires.
