Synopsis from Goodreads

Let the Hunt begin…

Blending in with her college co-eds proves difficult for vampire Hunter, Emma Martin, considering the mystical tattoo on her wrist glows whenever Vamps are near. And after three months of silence, the glow is back with a vengeance.

Jake Cunningham witnesses Emma, a violet-eyed beauty, using unimaginable powers to fight off a fanged creature. Finally, after two years of searching, he may have found out what he’s become—a Hunter, like Emma.

Thankful for an ally in the fight against the Vamps, Emma finds hope and comfort in Jake’s arms. As she learns more about her new love’s family and its dark heritage, she may be forced not only to hunt them but to sacrifice her life to save Jake’s soul.

      Violet Midnight follows a young woman named Emma. She has been chosen to be a Hunter. She hunts and destroys vampires. She is the only one of her kind, so she tries her best to make sure no one knows of her special powers and the things that go bump in the night. One day she while being forced to go on a party with her best friend Ava, she meets a guy named Jake. Emma does her best to avoid guys due to her past, but there I something about him. They soon find out that they are more alike than they think. Jake is also a Hunter, but his mark is much different from hers. They know they are destined for each other though. But their destiny may not be as romantic as they initially thought.

      This book was awesome!!! I read it in a day. Rush definitely has herself a new fan. I loved this. Emma is my kind of heroine. She was so cool and such a badass. But I also loved her vulnerabilities and all she does to take care of those around her. I loved her friendship with her best friend Ava. They were so different, but they worked well together.  I did have a little issue with this though. Since they were such best friends, I didn’t understand why Emma wouldn’t tell Ava about what she is and what she does. Ava would find out and Emma would constantly wipe her mind of the events. She never gives her chance to adjust to it. She didn’t run out screaming and saying you are nuts or anything. Give her chance. She does ask whether too many mind wipes would damage her. Stop doing it so you won’t have to find out woman!

     I loved Jake in this book as well. I really enjoyed that we got the chance to see things from his perspective as well. He knows that his mark means chaos, but he knows he must be like Emma. She has a mark too on her wrist that is the source of her power and lets her know that vampires are near. But his mark doesn’t work like hers and it seems to cause lapses in his memory. I was scared to find out what it meant exactly. But man, it is a big one. I was screaming at the book at this point. Oh Rush, you killed me. So unfair! We also some other characters specifically Dylan and Cynthia. I liked them, but I couldn't shake the feeling something was up with them. They really loved each other, but it seemed they were connected by something else. This was interesting for sure.

     The story flowed very well. From the get go, I was engulfed in it from the very beginning. I was so curious about the characters and what they will discover about each other. They know that Jake's mark is different and they were destined somehow to find each other. But the unraveling was crazy. Like I said, unfair. I loved the development between Emma and Jake. They were smoldering together from the very beginning. I loved how much they helped each other especially when everything hits the fan. And boy does it hit the fan.

     Definitely read this book. It is an addictive read to say the least. The characters are worth rooting for especially Jake given his issue. Emma and Jake are to die for. You will breeze through this. It is fast paced and full of lots of action and romance. If you are like me and you were addicted to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, this read will be right up your alley. Rush really knows how to grab your attention and not let go. This is an incredible start to a trilogy. I am itching for Violet Dawn (book 2). Add this to your wishlist now.
