Goodreads Summary:
Cici Trent, vampire and media darling, spends her days finding true love for humans and supernaturals (the "Others") at her dating agency. But someone is trying to sabotage her business and she needs help. Unfortunately, the best man for the job is the one who broke her still-beating heart two hundred fifty-four years ago.

Deacon is a patient vampire. He’s only loved one woman in over three hundred years— CiCi— and she chose another. So when she shows up in his office asking for help, he finally has the chance to lay that demon to rest. He’ll help her, but for a price—a night in his bed.

Adrenaline, mischief, and a little late-night B&E light the passion that even a couple of lifetimes couldn’t put out. But Deacon has a secret and when Cici is suddenly mortal, his deception might be the only way restore her immortality. Can love bridge the gap between a heartbeat and forever?

My thoughts: 
Poor Cici and Deacon. Their whole relationship is one big misunderstanding. Seriously, from the very beginning. But then fast forward two hundred plus years and the misunderstandings are still in play. 

Cici now runs a dating site for supernaturals. She turns to Deacon for help when she's being targeted by an ancient foe. Deacon seizes his chance to finally straighten things out between the two of them, even though he's been stalking her for the last two hundred years. Yes, he promised her father he'd watch out for her, but come on! 

Anyway, things get heated up between the two love birds and just when things are getting good, BAM she gets turned human again. Now Deacon is distant and Cici can't understand why. And now even more misunderstandings get piled on top of the ones that already exist.

Bottom line is Deacon and Cici need to have a conversation where they actually talk about more than the weather. They don't actually talk about the weather, but you know what I mean. I just wanted to slap both characters at times. 

Overall this is a good story with frustrating characters. The ending of the book saved it for me, though I won't give you any specifics. 

My rating:
I'd give this book a 2.5 but I'll round to 3
