I’m a huge fan of K.A. Linde and I’ve been tempted by a hot vampire or two.. so add them together and it becomes a must have listen. But wow this was far more than I was expecting.. the world-building was phenomenal, the chemistry sizzled and the unexpected lay behind ever corner.
One city.. but two worlds.. the lavish colorful decadent world of the vampires and the gray grungy world of the humans. Reyna lived in the Warehouse District with her two brothers but, with no money, no prospects and no future, her only hope was to become a live-in blood escort for the privileged vampires. But that plan went catastrophically right and catastrophically wrong when she got assigned to Beckham Anderson because Reyna saw, experienced and did things that were way.. waaay beyond her expectations. And that was due to the dark, sexy, charismatic, broody, moody vampire that she belonged to.
By chapter six I thought I’d look for more info about this book.. only to discover that it was going to end in a CLIFFHANGER and it’s book 1 of a TRILOGY. Now I love trilogies but don’t do them until ALL three books are available. However, this book’s storyline grabbed me and totally pulled me in as I eagerly anticipated the next gaspworthy twist and turn. I just couldn’t let it go.. even knowing about the cliffhanger and the months of waiting for the rest of the books. Why? well, apart from having absolutely no self control, it was because it’s that damn good.. rivetingly epically good. Every time Reyna would leave Beckham’s penthouse you just didn’t know where the days (and the nights) would take her, what drama she’d get caught up in and what horror she’d see. There was also a delicious slow burn and sensual tension between Reyna and Beckham because their push/pull relationship was fuelling seismic attraction and lust.. but there’s so much standing in their way.
Worth a credit? Oh boy YES indeedie. A refreshingly new multi-layered vampire love story told from Reyna’s POV.. a gripping story of a world that’s been overtaken and ruled by vampires.. there’s secrets, mysteries, talk of a rebellion, innocent pawns and devious players.. and two people who try to resist each other. Great narration too.

I have been a fan of K.A. Linde for about 2 years now and she never seizes to amaze me. To me, this story is a combination of True Blood meets Hunger Games. The background in the world that they live in is very real and the sense of urgency is very palpable. Once you get deeper into the characters and all the drama it is impossible to press stop. Reyna, for her young age, has much maturity and a level head on her shoulders so one can't help but root for her and want to keep following her journey. Beckham is all the bruddy, mysterious and alpha male that we love to hate and devour all at once. There are times where you are on the edge of your seat and you think the action will lead you to one place, but all of a sudden "BAM!!" The unexpected happens and you are again taken on another ride. The ending though... JUST WOW!!!! The follow up can't come fast enough!!!
