Working as a fry cook, Matthew has formed bonds he isn’t too happy about.  When changes are made, Matthew thinks about leaving, but then he finds himself drawn to Rory and starts to change his mind. 

Black of Night is a new paranormal romance by author TC Blue.  This story takes the readers into a world where vampires and shifters exist alongside humans, even though humans have no idea they exist.  The characters pull you into the world created by the author from the beginning and continue to hold your interest until the last page. 

Matthew is a vampire.  He works as a cook on the night shift and, while he tries not to get too involved with the humans that he cooks for, he can’t help but become attached.  When the owner of the restaurant turns the place over to his nephew, Matthew begins thinking about moving on.  Rory is the new owner and Matthew has made him very curious.  It takes a while but eventually these two can’t deny the attraction that exists between them.   The author really heated up the pages with Rory’s and Matthew’s first encounter.  It is then that Matthew also realizes that Rory isn’t human.  While the two men deal with their reactions to each other, Matthew is still trying to figure out who is killing red heads in his small town, and what the possible connection to Rory is.

While I enjoyed the relationship that developed between the main characters, it is the mystery that really held my interest.  There were a lot of little twists and turns that kept me wondering, but when the culprit is revealed, the reasons for the killings is over the top.  I could not believe the way this part of the story played out.  

Fans of the paranormal sub-genre should really give this story a shot as I am sure it will become a must keep for many readers.
