Medical research scientist Elena Arcos has always lived her life under the radar. When she is shot in a convenience store robbery, she finds herself rocketed into supernatural insanity courtesy of a sexy immortal law enforcer. He’s convinced she’s some kind of freaky half vampire thing and that her deceased dad was the real deal: a blood sucking monster. Yeah, right.
As a Slayer, an elite law enforcer descended from Azrael himself, Nikolai Itzov’s orders from the Underveil General are clear: Kill Elena Arcos or die. The only thing holding him back from that directive is the overwhelming urge to protect her. Too bad she’s also the offspring of his father’s murderer. Kissing Elena, let along being with her body and soul, can never happen.
Nikolai and Elena find themselves in a life and death battle to stop a plot designed to lift the Underveil and enslave humans. With her analytical mind and his centuries of training, they might be able to foil the plot with their lives, and maybe even with their hearts intact. But in order to succeed, he must help her become the very thing he hates the most: an Undead.
4 - "The knowledge is mine. The discovery is yours." Stars!
Love Me to Death is the second book I have read by Marissa Clarke in recent months and after being massively impressed with her first contemporary romance offering, I had high expectations for the first book in the Underveil series. She d... ...more
Action-packed and sexy as hell, Marissa Clarke’s LOVE ME TO DEATH is a fantastic and utterly delectable start to this new series. Fascinating lore and intriguing characters that leave the door wide open for many exciting stories to come, two protagonists whose chemistry sizzles, whose personaliti... ...more
Wow! I loved it. Great world-building and fantastic secondary characters, each with a distinct voice, helped push this one to a five star rating. Of course the main characters were pretty smoking hot, too. Nik is a strong alpha male that I loved, and Elena is badass in her own right. Fun, witty d... ...more
LOVE ME TO DEATH is the latest addition to my favorite reads list. I'm a big paranormal romance fan and when I stumble onto a new series that has as much potential as this one I get all giddy inside.

I’m not going to rehash the synopsis because as you see… it is long.. but it is also perfect and a great insight into this brilliant book. I loved everything about this book, the characters, the worlds, the different kinds of... ...more
This is a very long book and it starts off in a very different place from where it ends. I'll admit, this book took me longer to read than normal...around 4-5 days versus my normal 1 and I really can't pinpoint why. The book is absolutely action-filled and interesting, but I did feel th... ...more
Love Me to Death left me with a very promising first impression. It was fast-paced, had interesting characters, humor, very good suspense and action, a few surprises, but above all it was very entertaining.
Elena Arcos hadn’t really been living. If it hadn’t been for her getting shot during a conv... ...more

The story opens with the heroi... ...more

I really really liked this book. It really packed a punch, and was unlike anything I've been reading lately.
Elena is just a normal girl getting through life, when she finds herself in a gas station that's being robbed by a red eyed killer. She tries to hide but of course he finds her and shoots... ...more
Love Me to Death started off with a bang (literally) and just kept right on going. There wasn't a single moment that felt as if it were dragging along and there wasn't a single second that I wasn't sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to find out what happens next!
The book starts off in the mid... ...more

I'm not going to lie, I was mighty confused during the first couple chapters of LOVE ME TO DEATH, thankfully things become more clear as Elena learns what the heck is happening to her and who the heck Nikolai is.

For all the times, he had gone to battle and killed, he just couldn’t do it. The question is, what is the re... ...more
My review 5/5
This book is a wild ride and it is hard for me to believe the total shift the book takes from a convenience store robbery to the concluding paragraph.
It is hard to write this review without spoiling the book. It is the story of the underveil, a world unseen by humans. In this world,... ...more
this was a great story in a real great world. but I really thought about giving it only 3,5 stars. The reason for that is, that despite the great story and the worldbuilding and the in general really interesting characters, I had troubles with Elena - she was really annoying around the middle and... ...more
Nikolai sure isn't shy that boy will drop his drawers no matter who he's in front of, "you were already dead when I found you." He stepped out of his pants and froze...well, except for the part of him that obviously approved of her stare. It practically waved and shouted "Howdy!" Apparently Elena... ...more
The best begining ever! I loved it so much that I had to keep reading. It was pretty good book. I liked all the characters especially time folder, I hope there will be a book about him as well. The story revolves around Elena and Nikolai. It is a paranormal novel set in a world of supernatural. I... ...more
