Crimson Midnight (Crimson #1) by Amos Cassidy

Crimson Midnight (Crimson #1)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Rose wants excitement, bright lights and late nights, but she gets more than she bargained for when she swaps her wholesome country life for the hustle and bustle of London.

The city night is home to hungry shadows, eager to consume her.
Rose discovers there is more to this world than what the mundane eye sees, and that she herself is a part of it. Unexpected friendships are forged and unwanted, sometimes dangerous, attractions flare.

London becomes a playground for magic, danger and supernatural threat. While her life, and those of who she loves, hangs in the balance, she must endeavour to embrace her new nature and assist in identifying the hidden threat before it succeeds in its dark purpose.

An Urban Fantasy filled with moon-praising, flat-dwelling vampires, chic corporate werewolves, bar-tending warlocks, ravenous demons and much, much more.

When Rose lands a job in London at a gym, she moves in with her Godmother, but isn’t prepared for the London nightlife, especially when she finds that London is home to a supernatural community of witches, vampires, and werewolves that she never even knew existed.
When Rose is then targeted by both a demon and a rogue werewolf, her new friends try to work out exactly what she is, but none of them are sure.
What is Rose? Why is everyone after her? And does she stand a chance with sexy werewolf Roman?

This was an okay story, but could have done with being shorter.

The characters in this were okay, and I really liked the chemistry between Rose and Roman. I really wished we could have had a lot more of Rose and Roman together, because those scenes were steamy, and the unrequited lust started to annoy me a bit.

The storyline in this was okay, but I just found the story too slow, and too long. It took too long for anything to happen, and there was so much unnecessary stuff which didn’t need to be in there, which could have been trimmed to help with the pace of the story. My favourite part was the romance, and there was unfortunately way too little of that, and I kept losing interest in the rest of the story because it took so long for anything to really happen.
It took until the 48% mark for the story to actually get interesting, then after a brief period of excitement, we once again got back down to the very slow and convoluted story, which meant that by the time I got to the end I had really lost interest.
The ending of this one also annoyed me because we got left with a huge cliff-hanger.
Overall; an okay paranormal romance, but needed more romance, and to be more succinct.
6 out of 10.
