It's official - I'm an addict - for Tina Folsom's Scanguards and I don't ever want to find a cure as I'm happily hooked and now just waiting for my next fix. Anywhoo, back to the review:-

Poor Oliver was greatly tested in this latest exciting yet frustrating instalment and his problems begin when he stumbles across a beautiful, but bleeding, Ursula who's Asian-American and has just escaped from being held as a blood slave for addicted Vampires for years. He does the honourable thing and seeks help from his fellow Scanguards but everyone accuses him, distrusts him and argues with him and his loyalties are stretched to near breaking point as he soon falls for her but, as an ex addict, will Ursula's blood become his next drug of choice now or can he keep his fangs off her?

There's slavery, secrets, trust issues, suspense, action, twists and turns, humor, sex and, as we slowly see lust and passion turn into a touching tender love, all the Scanguards have to come to terms with the fact that little Oliver has now grown up and is capable of taking on the mission to take down the evil Vampire villain that's running the blood slave ring.

Worth a credit? Although this leaves you very frustrated and disappointed with the rest of the Scanguards Team members for their treatment of Oliver and Ursula's feelings, it's still a good (but not the best) addition to a great series... so yes very creditworthy. Up next in book 8 we finally get Thomas' Choice who we all know is Eddie.... so be prepared.

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"

Good story, yummy narrator

This series started off really strong, I loved the first books and then the last couple were a chore to get through. This one is really well done but there are parts that are super annoying.

Oliver is a really interesting character because we have known him from the beginning of the series and experienced his turn in the last book. I really liked that he had to struggle and we got a glimpse into what happens to a new vamp. It makes him more real than some of the other guys. I also applaud him for not buckling in the face of all his "friends" doubts.

Ursula is another great gal, she had been through so much and kept fighting. If I had been held for years and only knew pain from vampires it would be unlikely I would trust any, even ones who saved me, right away. Her strength and sass were engaging throughout.

The smexy steam was delicious. I loved the car scene. Oh girl, you will need a cold drink for that one! And when the narrator, Eric G. Dove, reads it to you in his delicious voice...goodbye panties! He has such a way with his words. I could listen to him for hours, oh wait, I did!

It is becoming a theme in the books that the hero has to fight his friend about the girl. None of them had an easy road to love, so it is annoying they forget how they felt in a similar situation. I also felt they vilified Oliver for his past addiction, way to make him feel like he can over come his mistakes. I was really PO'd at the whole scene where nobody would believe him about what he had and had not done. And then when he is proved innocent all he gets is a backhanded apology. Not cool at all!

I am eager for the next book, even though MM is not really my thing. I want to see Thomas get his HEA, especially after his heartbreak in the first book.
