Review: Covet (The Clann #2), by Melissa Darnell

Title: Covet (The Clann #2)
Author: Melissa Darnell
Format: eGalley

From Goodreads: "Dangerous to be together. Painful to be apart. 

Savannah Colbert knows she broke up with Tristan Coleman for the right reasons. Most of all, to keep from killing him with her new vampire abilities. But try telling her heart. Now, lost in a sea of hostile Clann faces, Sav tries to come to terms with what she's becoming and what that means for her future. And that someone is doing their best to bully her into making a terrible mistake. 

Tristan can't believe Sav won't even talk to him. If being apart is her decision, fine. Just don't expect him to honor it. But even as he prepares to fight for the girl he loves, forces beyond their control take them both in directions neither could have foreseen or prepared for. 

A reckoning is coming...and not everyone will survive."

My Opinion: Things just never seem to go easy for Savannah Colbert and Tristan Coleman. Just when Savannah manages to prove to the Vampire Council that she can be around Tristan without giving into the siren's call of his Clann blood, they give her an ultimatum and force her to break things off with him. She doesn't have the heart to tell him right away,  instead waiting until their plane lands back home so she can enjoy the last few hours they have together, but things go from bad to worse when they get a phone call letting them know that the Clann thinks Sav and her father have kidnapped Tristan and done God knows what to him. In retaliation, they kidnap Sav's grandmother and when tragedy strikes, Savannah finally realizes that a relationship between herself and Tristan can only ever bring heartache to all of their loved ones, not to mention the two of them, and she keeps her word to stay away from him. Unfortunately, that's easier said than done because Tristan refuses to accept her decision, and goes to great lengths to be with her again.

I love the relationship between these two star crossed lovers just as much in this book as in the first! There's just something about them that makes you pull for them to get their happy ending, despite incredible hurdles placed in their way by both the Vampire Council and the witch Clann, with particular emphasis on Tristan's parents. There's real character growth here and the pacing of the story makes for a very quick read.  I enjoyed this book very much and am looking forward to reading the third installment in this series, Consume! :D
