Selling your soul has never been so charming and Mark throws in a little something to sweeten the pot, his girlfriend Naomi.

Sentenced to death at the hands of a demon, Naomi Hawk has a firsthand lesson in despair and betrayal in Mark’s deal for fame with all the trimmings. Deep in the clutches of the underground brotherhood, Naomi's light is coveted for the Master's gain.

When she slips and falls eighty stories from a precarious ledge, Naomi resigns herself to the inevitable impact and death by shattered bones. 

Before she can escape her demons in eternal slumber, something sinister plucks her from the plummet, stealing her out of the night to sacrifice her forever to the shadows.

Imprisoned in bottomless darkness, Naomi thirsts for justice…and revenge.

When I first saw this book in Netgalley, I am not going to lie, the cover got me and I requested the book right away.  The look on the girl’s face (Naomi) caught my attention from first glace.  Unfortunately, that’s as far as my love could go for this book. 

Naomi, the main character is betrayed by her boyfriend, Mark.  He actually sold her out to Lucifer because she wouldn’t sleep with him.  Yeah, a real prince charming, huh?  Luckily for her, a shapeshifter vampire named Damian wants her too and as she is falling to her death, he swoops her up and takes her away.  Unfortunately for Naomi, Damian wants to kill her too.  Yeah, she is one lucky girl.  So what does she do to fight back, she bites Damian on the neck!  Well, little did she know that that is the way to turn into a vampire!  So now, here she is, in front of this shapeshifter vampire, who by the way is in shock because, well, she bit him.  Soon she finds out that Damian is seeking revenge on Lucifer because he took the love of his life some two thousand years ago.  Now, together they will have to come up with a plan to take out Lucifer before he finds out that Naomi is still alive and a vampire at that.   
I REALLY wanted to like Night Hawk, but unfortunately, it just wasn’t my cup of tea. There were times while reading where I had to flip back and reread the last few paragraphs because I didn’t understand what was going on.  The story didn’t flow.  It just felt like I was thrown into this story without any background information.  Maybe it was lack of the world building?  Now don’t let my review discourage you.  Everyone has different likes and dislikes.  I went onto Goodreads and saw many 5 point reviews.  Give Night Hawk and try and you never know, you might actually be the next person that gives it a 5 star review.
