I go by Rose. But don’t let the delicate name fool you. I’m all thorns...
The polished metal stakes strapped to my thighs have pierced the hearts of so many vampires I’ve lost count. And after five years, I still haven’t found him - the vamp with one blue eye and one brown. The one who slaughtered my mother and left me, a child, to sit screaming in a pool of her still-warm blood.
With any luck, he’ll come to me. You see, I’ve made something of a name for myself with my trade. It seems more and more of the bloodsucking bastards seek to find me every day. Each of them wanting to be the one to say they plucked the Black Rose.
It’s not until a group of three finds me that I think I’ve finally met my match. But these aren’t just any nameless, faceless vamps. I know them. Or, at least, I knew them, when they were still human.
Worst of all, I owe them a debt. But paying it means I’ll need to face my worst fear...that I may not be entirely human, either.

Let me just start with Compel Me is hot! If you are looking for a hot, steamy, melt the panties off of you paranormal- this is it! Elena Lawson, you totally rocked my world with this amazing read.
Now that I have my enthusiastic reaction out of the way, let’s talk about the characters. So, Rose is pretty kick ass. She is a character that I usually wish for when I’m reading a paranormal book. Then there are “her boys”; they are pretty awesome too. I honestly don’t have a bad thing to say about these characters.
As I stated earlier, Elena Lawson totally rocked my world with this book. Seriously, I felt every bit of emotion in this story. For Compel Me to be just under 5 hours, I feel that Elena captured every detail that truly made these characters perfect. Normally I’m not into reverse harem because I love when one guy gets the girl, but wow!
Now as amazing as Elena did with writing Compel Me, Addison Barnes did an amazing job narrating. It’s easy for a narrator to make or break an audio edition. I am so happy that Addison made this a book that I now love! She definitely aids in portraying the emotion and bringing the story to life. Honestly, my favorite part about audiobooks is that they give a story a voice and it brings it to life even more.
Overall, I am completely enthralled with this series after only this first installment. The whole production went off without a hitch. I am super excited to step back into this world with the second installment. Unless you have a problem with adult themed books, you absolutely must read this story. The only thing you will be left asking for is more.
