Take it Like a Vamp
by Candace Havens
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Cassie Meyers lately has a run of bad men in her life, complete losers. She wishes for a man like her neighbor Nick. Nick has become Cassie's best friend but he's rich, has beautiful woman swarming him and is the ruler of the Supernatural Council.
Nick thinks Cassie is the perfect woman but he doesn't want to pull her into his dangerous world. One mistake and his feelings for Cassie are exposed, creating a bullseye on Cassie for all his enemies. The choice of keeping Cassie close is taken away when he must guard her from his supernatural world.
This was an interesting and enjoyable story. It seemed like a slow building romance with a little bit of paranormal on the side...causing the antagonism. Cassie was a fun loving and humorous character, who seemed to roll with the punches rather well.
I did find the supernatural side of this story had a good start but it seemed to lack focus making the story a little jumping. This distracted me from forming any personal connections to the characters. I also found the ending abrupt leaving lots of open ended plot directions.
Take It Like A Vamp was a good start to what could be an extremely interesting series. It has tons of potential and an exciting premiss.
I received this copy of Take it Like a Vamp from Entangled Publishing, LLC - Covet in exchange for a honest review. This book published May 20, 2013.
