This follow-up to Any Way You Want It features some of the same characters, although this book works fine on its own. As in the previous book, the action takes place in New Orleans where human Erika Todd finds herself meeting up with Vittorio Ridgewood again. Vittorio is the brother of Erika's friend Maggie's new husband, Ren (Maggie and Ren's romance was the focus of the previous book), and like Ren, Vittorio is a lampir, a kind of vampire. Erika doesn't know this, however; she just knows that her very accurate psychic has prophesied that she will find the prince of her dreams, describing someone who sounds very like Vittorio.

Vittorio likes Erika a lot, but he knows that his former girlfriends have all died, many in rather inexplicable ways. He fears that a woman from his past is disposing of his former loves, and he doesn't want to put any other woman in danger. Still, he finds it hard to keep away from Erika. When Erika starts to unpeel the layers of reserve and shyness from Vittorio, she finds someone she wants to know - but can he keep her safe, or will the machinations of the dangerous woman cause her death as well?

I enjoyed I Want You to Want Me more than the previous one in the series, finding it more satisfying with regard to characterization and events. I felt occasionally annoyed with Vittorio, that he didn't explain what he was and why he was behaving so oddly, but then it would have been a rather short book. There is no real doubt that there will be a happy ever after, but it's still worth a read.
