Filthy Rich Vampires: Second Rite (Filthy Rich Vampires Book 2) by Geneva Lee

This is the second book in the Filthy Rich Vampires series.

He wore darkness with such graceful ease…

Thea Melbourne has a broken heart. A month after her world turned upside down, she’s struggling to return to the life she left behind. Her mother is in a coma, she’s selling off designer gowns to pay the bills, and her roommates seem to think she’s made of glass. But when the vampire who broke her heart shows up at the hospital, she learns a devastating secret.

To save the love of his life, Julian pushed her away. Now he has to live with the pain and regret or find someone to put him out of his misery. When it becomes clear that Thea is still in danger, he has a choice to make. He can stay away like the Council demands or risk everything, including their lives, to win her back.

Convincing her means facing his own dark secrets and resisting the temptation to claim her as his mate once and for all. But Thea isn’t going to make that easy for him.

My God, I absolutely devoured this book. I haven’t been this excited for a book in a long time. It was brilliant. The characters are fantastic and I love the story.

I think I’m in love with Julian. I went into this book angry with him. I’ve actually been angry with him for months, ever since reading the end of the first book, so I was so looking forward to this book coming out.

It’s safe to say, Julian redeemed himself, and then some. I love him. He is romantic, sexy, strong and such a gentleman.

Where can I find a vampire like Julian? Everyone needs one in their life.

Thea is a brilliant character as well. She grows as the book goes on and she stands up for herself. I love the twists and revelations about her and her background.

Her relationship with Julian is brilliant. They are so suited and I loved that he finally gave in to his desire. They are mates and it was about time that they both accepted it and acted on it. I loved the spice and spark between them. I’m looking forward to seeing how their relationship continues to grow as the series continues.

The story is great. I was surprised about how it developed, especially when we found out what the second Rite was. I guess that was the whole point though, to not see it coming.

I like seeing them defy the Council by not only going through with the Rites, but already deciding that they want to go the whole way. They are mates after all. I’m intrigued to see how things go.

It was good to see more of Julian’s family. His mother is a piece of work and I’m looking forward to seeing how things develop in the next book regarding her.

I think the way vampires are in this series are great. They have their uniqueness while also keeping to what we know. I love learning more about Julien and his kind as the book goes on.

I wish this book didn’t end, especially how it did. I wanted more, and that ending was just painful. I can’t wait for the next book to find out what will happen next. I have a suspicion but we’ll see.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this series. I have absolutely loved it and it is definitely one of my top books I’ve read this year. The characters are fantastic and I love the story.

My rating: 5/5*
