The overall story was okay and it had its funny moments, but somewhere along the way the story lost or never picked up something. I'm not sure which, it left a lot to be desired. I truly expected more and kept waiting and waiting but it never came. Like I said overall it was an okay book. The story ends up being more about avenging old debts and enemies. It also has some of the most cheesy lines you have ever heard. If you ever watched old, old black and white Dracula movies then you know exactly what I mean, but the writer wants you to believe this is happening in modern times. Can't have it both ways.
I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
From the moment you start listening you will be hooked. It has romance, humor, mystery and so much more. I listened to it in one day. I love being able to laugh and cry in the same book. Each characterd was well done. It's a fun read.
This story is so funnily written I can almost see the different situation before me. Very witty and funny!
The reader is exceptionally good. She is so brilliantly getting the different accents and all very convincing und adding to the fun!!! I will surely look out for more audiobooks read by her.
I DID listen to it in one go. I just couldn't stop till I almost fell asleep becuase it was so late in the night!

Funny! Sizzling! Loving!
I would compare Kerrelyn Sparks to Lynsay Sands
Sex, vamps and money... oh my!
This is a delightful lighthearted listen. It is the first in the series and introduces Roman, the inventor of synthetic blood and leader of the good vamps. He is old, lonely and bored when he looses a fang to a recent invention. He has to use a mortal dentist--who just happens to be in the witness protection program. There are plenty of plot twist and turns to keep you listening and just enough humor to keep it very light.
The narrator did a wonderful job. It was very easy to loose myself in the story and not hear the narrator, just the story.
Say something about yourself!
Good book. Narrator does a good job. Terrific beginning to a great series with a well-fleshed-out world. So glad that there are future installments, and I read on the author's website that she has signed on for more books so there will be many chapters to this on-going saga.
I am sorry, I really thought with all the reviews that this book was going to be funny and sexy. Instead I found myself listening to a horribly crappy books that ensures that I will not listen to this series or anything else by Ms. Sparks. The narrator was great. The whole take the hero on biting a blow-up doll and losing a tooth starts off well-enough. However, I have never heard of a hitman calling a mark to tell her the hitman is about to kill her. The whole premise of this book makes no sense. The vampires can't be in the sun, but have heartbeats? The herioine is afraid of blood and is creeped out by the hero but is so weak and mealy-mouthed that she runs away from him only to run back to him only to later lead a charge to save him by holding up a sword and saying a rallying cry ????? A cab is able to lose a government vehicle in a chase???? The vamps have pulses during the night and no other time (this I could live with). However, I can't live with or even find humor in the fact that even though the vampires are dead, they are getting fat from "fusion" cuisine and now the hero is introducing something called "Blood Light!" In addition there is an assassin female vampire who is not strong enough to lift a body? I found myself skipping whole chapters trying to digest this book. This was a painful listen and I could not think how this could get worse. Except it does. Her father is even more foolish. No CIA personnel would tell a mark that the CIA has been trying to use mind control on them. The whole premise of the book is interesting but the follow-through is awful. I did not find humor in it or have any interest in the romance. I could not waste 11 hours so I skipped multiple chapters so I could get to the end. Don't waste your money on this book.
Yes. I like the book. It's funny and sexy
Wish books had male and female voices
Great First Book
She reads well and you can tell who's speaking without it being said
Pursued by the mob and dentistry for the damned
Great first book and can't wait to read the rest of the series.
This whole series makes you feel warm and fuzzy about Vampires,good looks manners,respectful of us mortals,its a good read.
