BLOOD TYPE ~ K.A. LINDA --> REVIEW & EXCERPT



 



 

 

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.

“Good.”

REVIEW:


In a world where Vampires on are top of the food chain and living well and humans are living in poverty, there is a company called Visage that matches blood types of humans to vampires so that they don't have any reaction to blood that is not there type.

Reyna Carpenter is living well below the poverty line with her brothers. Deciding she needs to do something before they starve to death, she puts her name in at Visage to be a blood escort, even thought she is petrified of needles and the thought of a vampire biting her for her blood almost makes her want to pass out.

She is tested at Visage and her blood type is found to match one of the higher up executives. She is informed they have a new program where instead of changing out every month, the blood escort will live permanently with the vampire. The pay is double and she accepts, knowing she can help her brothers out with the extra money and maybe even go to college and get a good job. She is placed with Beckham Anderson.

Beckham whisks Reyna away and then it becomes a cat and mouse game. He is hot and cold. He doesn't feed from her and Reyna gets bored, even though she can purchase anything she wants.

Reyna is not content to just fall in line and pushes Beckham at every turn. She manages to constantly get into trouble and stir the pot.

Things are not as they seem from the outside, there is conspiracy, betrayal and underhandedness, which keeps you wanting to know what is going on.

This book is a total CLIFFHANGER and you are totally left wondering what is going on.

I have to state that this book is not your typical vampire romance, but was a refreshing new take on a paranormal romance, but a very enjoyable read and I'm anxious to read the next book in the series to find out what happens.

5 stars
