I have to say that it was pretty exciting to read about a myth such as the chupacapra because as you may not know my mother is Domicican and my father is Puerto Rican and I've heard many stories of the chupacapra. I also don't usually read that many romance novels about hispanic people and this book was such a nice change of pace for me. Frankie Montalvo is a strong Latina woman who had a very tough childhood since she was an only child and both her parents died and she was put into the New York foster system. Rico Lopez is a strong Latin man who had a loving childhood with both loving parents and his siblings both sisters and brother. From the first page the story captivated me because of the whole el chupacapra angle that was being used in the novel. I've seen a couple of pictures and even an interesting movie about the chupacapra and so reading this novel really fascinated me. I have to say that the characters Frankie and Rico also held my attention because they really got one another's attention from the start of the book.
The story kept me on my toes because of all the suspense with the chupcapra and Frankie's very strange family member such as her drunken uncle and high priestess aunt. I loved the sexual tension between Frankie and Rico. They make an interesting couple and very good together even though they had a lot of rough roads to get through in order to finally realize that they were meant for each other. I also didn't expect the novel to end the way it did and I really loved how it ended. I'm really glad that I was fortunate enough to get a free copy of this wonderful sexy and suspenseful tale with a tropical twist that kept me so intrigued I had to keep turning the pages to find out what is going to happen next with Frankie and Rico.
