Rating: 4 Cups
Jake Willis must find who left the catchy ad in the paper looking to find a vampire. His search takes him each night into Cuppa, where he is able to share a cup of coffee with a lovely waitress.
Mary enjoys the mysterious stranger that comes in every night for coffee and to read the newspaper. He has a warm smile and a friendly wink. Mary feels the other customers only see her as someone who gives refills or speeds up their orders, but the mysterious stranger is different. He gives her much more just by having a cup of coffee. She desperately wants his name. All Mary has is Cuppa where she lives and works, as she tries to cure her amnesia.
Jake understands vampires. They share impatience and must follow rules. It is their way of being cast in shadows undetected from human society. He has come far since the one night he was bitten. By neutralizing the beast inside him, he has the upper hand. At Cuppa, Mary and Jake are pulled into the web of desire, they soon realize they are the only ones that can capture the love within their souls.
Heart and Soul is a page-turner from the moment Jake enters Cuppa. The ambience of Jake and Mary meeting, with only eye contact, or a small gesture, with a cup of coffee is very intriguing. Jake is a vampire that oozes with sex appeal. Yolanda Sfetsos creates a passionate read that travels through the pages. She drafts a world that could brilliantly be felt by this reader in this satisfying read.
