Obsidian by Kayla Curry
Ava has the worst taste in men. She hasn't been on a date in years, but Tom, the charming business mogul she knows from work, chips away at her defenses. It turns out that Tom is taking over not only Ava's company, but the world: he's a vampire, and he's dying to have Ava join him.
Sensibly, Ava goes on the run: Tom's not the sparkly kind of vampire, and it's obvious that despite their emotional attachment, he's predatory and dangerous. The vampires have zapped all satellite communication as part of their world domination plan, so Ava and her friends escape from Hawaii via boat. In California, they team up with some mortals and immortals who aren't willing to succumb to the vampires and begin fortifying themselves. Ava is distracted from the fight by Jesse, the aloof, rich man with a secret who funds the rebellion, and the reader is left wondering when the bottom will fall out of Ava's next relationship.
Curry weaves a tale of myth, magic, and danger. I can't wait to see what she does with the rest of the series!
