Amy's Story by D'Elen McClain

Title: Amy's Story (Fang Chronicles #1) 
 Author: D'Elen McClain

Genre: PNR- Vampires and shifters

Amy is hot on a story as she tries to discover what life is like for teenage girls living on the street. When her disguise almost gets her killed, she’s saved by one of New York’s most eligible bachelors. His private life is filled with secrets and his story sparks Amy’s interest. Discovering the truth lands her in a world of vampires and werewolves that she never dreamed existed. She also didn't dreamed she could truly love a man or vampire but Marcus shows her the light. Now the two must fight the one person who can destroy their chance at love. With the help of Marcus’ clan of werewolves the war begins.

I really don’t know where to start first so I am just going to cut to the chase here, the plot is different and good but the author really needs a better beta reader and editor because this book is really full of mistakes. If you don’t know what headhopping is your fixing to learn. Headhopping is where a writer will start out a chapter with one person’s POV and then without notice before the chapter ends the POV will change to a different character and just about every chapter has this. I really felt lost quite a few times because of the headhopping. I’m not a big complainer about grammar mistakes because my grammar itself is bad, so you know if I find mistakes it's not good.

The plot is very different and I did enjoy how the paranormal characters were more hard core. They do kill humans or others paranormal creatures to keep each other safe, so these vampires and shifters don’t have that stupid sparkle. I liked the heroine at first she seemed really real but before you know it she suddenly stated to just take to all the changes way to fast without question.

I felt like Amy and Marcus romance was a tad rushed therefore, I didn’t find that spark that I love to read between the main characters. The sex scenes are good but I just didn’t feel the heat between them.
I do have to give this author praise she kept the romance first and far most, even above the world build, I find some authors have a really hard time doing this.
