Deep within the forests of the Pacific Northwest, the battle for supremacy rages on between two Vampire coalitions: Guardian enforcers sworn to protect humanity, and Darkbloods, rogues who kill like their ancient ancestors….
He might be known for his effortless charm, but Guardian Jackson Foss is hiding a terrible secret. For months, he has battled the emergence of his dark nature—deadly urges that threaten to consume him. And those cravings only intensify when he meets Arianna Wells, the human he's been assigned to protect. Smart and perceptive, Arianna doesn't seem like a dangerous temptress. Yet she awakens in Jackson an unstoppable need that, if left unchecked, will brand him a traitor… a crime punishable by death.
But soon their bond may be Arianna's only hope. For stalking her in the shadows is a merciless enemy—one who will stop at nothing to claim her completely.

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Firstly, I love this Sweetblood Series and long may it continue and I think this has been my favorite because Jackson seemed such a lost and tortured soul as he fears he is becoming the very thing that he is hunting. But thankfully he meets Arianna and things start to look up.
Lots of great characters, many from past books, as they continue their fight against the Darkbloods plans to capture the Sweetbloods. However, this focuses more on Jackson and Arianna's love story as their relationship develops, grows and heats up - but there are still threats, kidnapping, fights and a an ahhhh of an ending.
Worth a credit? I'm going to judge this book not compare it to the undeniably top of it's class BDB - so it's a YES absolutely, a good and worthy series to sink your teeth into, and I'm off to listen to Santiago's story now which is the next in the series and is book 4.
I'm constantly looking for a good book to read and sometimes I get lucky and this SweetBlood Series was good. Audible should have a page where as a member can go to and recommend good books that they've read. Make it simple, life is too complicated. The narrator Eve Bianco has a sexy male voice for Fang. It would be nice to have a male and female read the audible books together, like in the FaeFever Series.
This may have been the forth book released but in the timeline of this series this is book 3.The story isn't as strong as the first two books, but it is okay. I think if our bad boy Jackson had more going on with him personally or more demons at his back the story would have had more of an edge. I don't like the narrator and at times she sucks the life out of the story. This series is not at the level of other vampire series, but it an okay listen. If you are looking for a BDB type of series this is not the series. For that try the Laura Adrian's breed series or new Laura Wright Eternal series.
