Read full description of the books Sunrise at Sunset:Author Jaz Primo is one of those rare male writers taking a stab at paranormal romance. I state this to say, his gender will not be taken into consideration with this review. Mr. Primo’s work will receive my honest thoughts based on the time I spent with his characters Katrina Rawlings and Caleb Taylor.
To put it mildly, the book had some problems. It reminded me of a bad one night stand where you don’t see the hump on his back until the morning light filters in the room or you reach the 27% point of this book. The early scenes delivered a concept that I could buy into. Katrina, our heroine, decides to die by sunburn then changes her mind. She runs for shelter to a shed type structure or garage and crawls under a tarp. She is badly burned internally and externally. She hears a child come into the room and realizes he knows she is in there as well. He finds her under the tarp which I think is over a car. She needs blood but won’t kill the child instead she befriends him by telling him she is an angel. She uses her angel status to get the boy to call someone and get blood delivered. She discovers the boy’s name is Caleb and he is eight. He is a brave little soul and does all he can to help her and keep her a secret while she heals. Well, Caleb might be a sweet child but he is being raised by an abusive father who attacks and beats him while Katrina is watching from under the tarp. Of course, being a vamp she did what she had to do to protect the child and erase his memory. So far, so good right. Well it’s the last scene of the book that had any resemblance of balance and reasonable editing.
Flash forward either 18 or 20 years, Katrina has decided that Caleb has grown into a hot little number. She wants him and takes him in a 3-4 sentence love scene. It was one of many 3 to 4 sentence love scenes that were supposed to reinforce our appreciation of Katrina and Caleb’s love. Example:
“She moved slowly and deliberately until she was lying atop him. Her lips met his, kissing him hard. Then time stood still as their bodies conveyed mutual love and longing. Later, she lay across his body lazily, her hand caressing his face.”
At about 70% in, I faced the un-thinkable truth…I don’t like Katrina, she is mean and disrespectful of Caleb most of the time. Caleb is a weak insecure coward all of the time. He is straight-up terrified of making her mad through most of the book. There is some reference towards the end about opposites attracting one another… right. Tools such as humor, exotic settings, or evil-genius protagonist were not used to salvage this thing. Bottom-line, a margarita weekend with a decent editor and a few close friends could have fixed all the problems with this book and brought it up a couple of stars. I am really disappointed that such a promising start suffered for mostly fixable problems.
I'm skipping the rest of this series. Good luck to those who decide otherwise.
