I enjoyed reading this book. I first picked it up because I really liked the first Scanguard Vampires series, Samson's Lovely Mortal. So when I notice this book was finally on audible and I jumped at the chance to read it. Amuary is a vampire that has a gift or you could say curse. He is forced to feel everyones emotions except love. He is unable to feel love for anybody. The only thing that can briefly alleviate this misery is sex. So he constantly has sex to help with the pain from his gift/curse. Nina is a street smart human, determine to find out what really happened to her brother that made him commit suicide. She begins looking into his death and she finds her way to Scanguard, the security agency Amuary works for. Upon their first meeting, the attraction between them is electrifying. Neither one can resist what is happening even though they both know it's a bad bad idea. So begins the story...
There are several things I enjoyed about this book. First Tina, writes some hot sex scenes. Truly they can melt your headphones. Second, the narrator, Kevin, does a superb job with the male voices. His voice is a deep rich luscious sound. Third, the book captivates you from the first line until the end. Usually books of this nature take awhile before you can actually get interested but Tina write characters that are intriguing and relatable.
The only thing that I didn't like about this book. With many male narrators, Kevin does a bad job of imitating a woman's voice. They are shrill and have the tendency to sound like a outraged teenager. Not the strong lead female characters they are suppose to be. If you can get pass this, the book is really worth a read. Worth a credit, yes, yes it is.

So, book 1. thankfully, has been followed up by an equally entertaining listen as the Scanguards sexy Team of Vampire Bodyguards and Security experts are all called up to battle evil again.
Amaury and Nina's story was touching, tender, sexy, romantic and hot also, the plot that they were involved in was exciting, had great characters, secrets to be unearthed, a prophecy, drama, plot twists, and, of course, a new enemy to vanquish. The H/H have great chemistry and there's some fun lines too as the handsome, beefy, sexy, Alpha Vampire Amaury (every Vampire book should have one) has a lot of mental 'baggage' from being cursed going on in his head and his remedy is Nina but she doesn't want to play as she's on a revenge mission - to kill all vampires.
Great plot (if only his 'sex and more sex' cure for a headache worked!) and, as it unfolds, there's lots of Ohhhs, Ahhh's and Mmmmm's to keep you entertained from the first chapter until the last. There's instant attraction (of course), they're on opposite sides (naturally) but Amaury's steadfast longing, love and belief in Nina eases his guilt and forgiveness may just win the day (thankfully).
Worth a credit? This is a series that has a LOT of forthcoming potential and I can see it going on and on as there's plenty of Scanguards to go round - so whilst they do, and whilst they're written to this calibre, then I'm going to happily spend my credits as I'm easily pleased - so that's a YES from this vamp tramp.
