Divinity by Bryl R. Tyne

Martin Hayes has found the perfect job for a 200-year-old vampire. As the late-shift security guard for Spire Industries, he works and hunts by night and sleeps by day, hidden away in the unused cellar. Life is all so easy—nights bleeding away, weeks and months passing . . . until a new janitor disturbs the peace. Martin finds himself consumed by memories (or are they?) of red hair, freckled skin, and a man he knows but doesn't know.

Dylan Mesmer isn’t just a hot, freckled, red-haired janitor. He’s altogether too composed around Martin and never surprised by Martin’s supernatural abilities. In fact, he seems to have a few of his own. And why does he keep feeding Martin orange lollipops?

A healthy vampire has no use for candy, yet Martin cannot resist the lure. It seems he’s being baited, but to what end? And what about those visions that assail him whenever he thinks of Dylan? Their story is centuries old, but this time around, Dylan’s playing for nothing less than immortality. Eternal life—and eternal love, after a sort—is within his reach, but can he convince Martin to change his ways and commit? They may never find their way beyond the anger and the lies, but there's no denying the draw between them, and that's very much worth fighting for—even among themselves.

Martin is a 200 year old vampire and working as a security guard makes life easier for those late night feedings - right? Well, that all changes when Dylan shows up, and it looks like Dylan might just have some supernatural powers of his own... but what's the deal with Orange Lollipops? And who is Anton?

I went into this book hoping it would be really good. I liked the idea of the plot, it seemed intriguing. Instead, this book left me very confused! It had a lot of jumping around, making it a bit difficult to keep up with what was actually happening. Having to sift through all the memories that seem to pop up everywhere was a bit much.

I liked the story, I liked the idea behind the story, but in the end was left unsatisfied. Perhaps, simply not enough detail? I never really understood what the Orange Lollipops did or what they were for either. The chemistry was off a bit, to much love/hate happening. Maybe, if the story was longer, so more details could have been added about both the past and the present I'd have been able to get more into it.

In all I'd give this 2.5 stars. It's not bad, unfortunately it's not great either.
