This story took me by surprise. It is not the typical blood thirsty and sometimes irrational vampire struggles as he falls in love against all odds. It is a fresh take on vampires and witches.
I have listened to several books narrated by Meghan Kelly and I really enjoy listening to her. Her voice is great portraying both males and females voices.
This is my first book in this series but I did enjoy listening to it. I felt like the characters could have been better developed and expanded a bit. It is a short and pleasant listen although Megan lacked in common sense most of the time.
Phillip is an Old vampire that doesn't usually mingle with human affairs but he decides to get involved and save Megan from some dangerous men.
There is some attraction between them but after spending some time with Philip, she runs from him and gets kidnapped. Things seems to move quickly from when she runs from Phillip to the Conclusion. It does have a pleasant conclusion. No major cliffhangers.

I was expecting the usual stereotypical vampire falling love, turning said "love" into vampire so they can spend their HEA together. Boy, I was wrong…… pleasantly wrong! Saved by Blood was a decent entertaining story with a refreshingly different plot. It's fairly quick and can be listen too in one sitting. However, the first half of the book felt more developed than the last half, making the ending feel a little rushed and abrupt. Overall rating of 3.5 stars.
Philip's been a vampire for hundreds of years. Each year that passes he loses more and more of his humanity and has become indifferent towards humans, life and his existence. One night, while out walking, he hears a women being attacked, and he finds himself fascinated that he would even care enough to consider helping her. What shocks him even more, his desire to want to spend more time with the human after he rescues her.
Megan is shaken up, but happy someone step in and saved her from being attacked, but she can tell there is something "different" about her savior and just wants to get away as fast as possible. She really thinks it's strange when Philip extends an offers for her to come back to his place and have a drink right after she's been attacked. Yup, she needs to get away…. now, but oddly finds herself standing outside her apartment contemplating Philip's offer. It's New Orleans, and she's always been fascinated with older homes, especially the one Philip lives in. Her curiosity wins and compels her to go to Philips house for the tour and drink. While showing his beautiful home, the strange pull and attraction between them intensifies and they end up spending a steamy night together. The next morning, Megan starts to connect the dots and all the strange things she's noticed and begins to think Philip may not be human. She makes a mad dash for home. All her life, she's felt the need to be on the run, and as soon as she gets to her apartment, she's packing and leaving town. Her plans come to a screeching halt when she is abducted by several men. Philip can't deny the attraction and pull he has towards Megan, and when he sees her rushing off, he's determine to go after her, especially when he learns Megan special and has been abducted.
Meghan Kelly is one of the reasons I choose to listen to this story. I've listened to several audios narrated by her and I always enjoy her performance. She has unique voice that’s pleasant, and I like how she portrays both the male and female characters.
