4.5 Permanent CROWNS
If you love paranormal romances, read this book. If you don’t, read this book. Once again, this is not my genre. The last paranormal romance I read was Twilight, but I was certainly sucked into this world with its new order between humans and vampires. I was riveted to each page trying to figure out all the players and where their allegiance lies.
I haven’t been in love with a vampire hero this much in forever. It is like KA Linde took my favorite romance hero qualities and added the dangerous vampire component only to make him more alluring. I was thoroughly seduced by this man and everything he stands for.
Reyna is an interesting heroine. I didn’t always agree with her choices, but her characterization is solid and never falters. Like her, readers are stumbling through the new world, wondering who is on which team, trying to learn the rules of the new world, and being seduced by the danger and allure of Beckham.
One thing Blood Type will do is keep you in suspense. Everything from the relationship between Becks and Reyna to the edge of your seat plot line with keep readers captivated, unwilling to walk away. The ending does leave readers hanging and waiting will be torture, but I cannot wait to see how it all plays out.
I am not a fan of paranormal romances, but I found myself swept up in this romance anyway. I became captivated by this world, the characters, and the storyline. I am already waiting for more.
ARC received in exchange for an honest review .
A startling new vision of paranormal romance: When a human ventures into the world of vampires—a decadent milieu of blood-bonds and betrayal—she discovers that not all is what it seems.
For Reyna Carpenter, giving up her body isn’t a choice. It’s survival.
In a civilization laid waste by poverty and desperation, Reyna accepts a high-paying position with the wealthy and hungry vampire elite. Her new job is as the live-in blood escort for the intimidating, demanding, and devilishly handsome Beckham Anderson. He’s everything she expected from a vampire, except for one thing—he won’t feed off her.
Reyna soon discovers that behind Beckham’s brooding, wicked façade lies a unique and complex man. And that, in a dark and divided world, she is more valuable than she ever would have believed.
For with each passing night, Reyna can’t shake the sensation that it’s Beckham who’s afraid of her.
Note: Reyna and Beckham’s story continues in Blood Match.
That was the moment Beckham appeared in the doorway like a storm cloud.
Reyna straightened in her seat at the expression on his face. He walked across the room like a tightly coiled spring ready to explode.
“Ah Beckham, there you are,” Harrington said.
“Excuse me, William. I need to speak with Reyna. Alone.”
She hastened out of her seat and followed him around the corner. He tugged her straight through the kitchens, out the back door, down a corridor, and into a dead end. Then her back was slammed against the brick wall. His fist connected with the wall behind her, and she felt the wall shudder. Debris floated onto her shoulders.
“You left,” he growled.
“I . . .”
“No.” He pressed his finger to her lips roughly. She stopped breathing and just stared up into his eyes as dark as night. Her body trembled under the feral stare. “You left without me.”
The silence was weighted. All she could do was sit with their bodies nearly touching. His finger on her mouth. Her mind wandering to hellacious places.
“You are my subject. Can you imagine what it was like when I found you missing? When you turned up with three of my kind?” She shook her head minutely. He bared his teeth to her, and she shrank back. “These are meant to drink your blood. To drink you dry until there is nothing left of your body but a dry corpse. We are killers. We don’t hesitate. Just because we’re wearing suits and seem more like you . . . does not mean we are like you. We are not like you. They especially are not like you. The only way you get to the top of Visage is to be fucking ruthless, Reyna. Do you understand?”
“You’re . . . scaring me,” she whispered.
Reyna Carpenter and Beckham Anderson return in the exhilarating follow-up to the provocative paranormal romance Blood Type.
