Publisher's Summary

For Reyna Carpenter, giving up her body isn't a choice. It's survival. In a civilization laid to 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.

Sexy, engaging and oh so good!! I WANT MORE!!!!

I have been a fan of K.A. Linde for about 2 years now and she never seizes to amaze me. To me, this story is a combination of True Blood meets Hunger Games. The background in the world that they live in is very real and the sense of urgency is very palpable. Once you get deeper into the characters and all the drama it is impossible to press stop. Reyna, for her young age, has much maturity and a level head on her shoulders so one can't help but root for her and want to keep following her journey. Beckham is all the bruddy, mysterious and alpha male that we love to hate and devour all at once. There are times where you are on the edge of your seat and you think the action will lead you to one place, but all of a sudden "BAM!!" The unexpected happens and you are again taken on another ride. The ending though... JUST WOW!!!! The follow up can't come fast enough!!!

AWESOME.. BUT BEWARE - THE FIRST BITE OF A TRILOGY

I’m a huge fan of K.A. Linde and I’ve been tempted by a hot vampire or two.. so add them together and it becomes a must have listen. But wow this was far more than I was expecting.. the world-building was phenomenal, the chemistry sizzled and the unexpected lay behind ever corner.

One city.. but two worlds.. the lavish colorful decadent world of the vampires and the gray grungy world of the humans. Reyna lived in the Warehouse District with her two brothers but, with no money, no prospects and no future, her only hope was to become a live-in blood escort for the privileged vampires. But that plan went catastrophically right and catastrophically wrong when she got assigned to Beckham Anderson because Reyna saw, experienced and did things that were way.. waaay beyond her expectations. And that was due to the dark, sexy, charismatic, broody, moody vampire that she belonged to.

By chapter six I thought I’d look for more info about this book.. only to discover that it was going to end in a CLIFFHANGER and it’s book 1 of a TRILOGY. Now I love trilogies but don’t do them until ALL three books are available. However, this book’s storyline grabbed me and totally pulled me in as I eagerly anticipated the next gaspworthy twist and turn. I just couldn’t let it go.. even knowing about the cliffhanger and the months of waiting for the rest of the books. Why? well, apart from having absolutely no self control, it was because it’s that damn good.. rivetingly epically good. Every time Reyna would leave Beckham’s penthouse you just didn’t know where the days (and the nights) would take her, what drama she’d get caught up in and what horror she’d see. There was also a delicious slow burn and sensual tension between Reyna and Beckham because their push/pull relationship was fuelling seismic attraction and lust.. but there’s so much standing in their way.

Worth a credit? Oh boy YES indeedie. A refreshingly new multi-layered vampire love story told from Reyna’s POV.. a gripping story of a world that’s been overtaken and ruled by vampires.. there’s secrets, mysteries, talk of a rebellion, innocent pawns and devious players.. and two people who try to resist each other. Great narration too.

Meh

The way this book was written is a bit off, written in the third person but describing everything and stating the main characters thoughts like it’s in the first person. What I don’t enjoy is the repetition of the phrase “she couldn’t believe......” probably in there a few hundred times. The story was alright but it was overly dramatic. Not for everyone

A Good Start...

4.5 Stars not a flat 4 Stars SO I was missing the actual connection/chemistry between Beckham and Reyna throughout most of the book. Reyna was a bit whinny even though she volunteered for service. And Beckham was pretty much a douche for most of the story. With all that being said I still NEED to get my hands on the next book!! I need to know what happens and why things are happening!!

This specific video review will be included in the April 2018 wrap-up.

OK

Reyna is a frustrating, whinny and doesn't know how to follow directions. Beckham is an ass! Reyna made it hard for me to continue the book her character alone makes me not what to purchase the other books. Especially if she is the same in the other books. Grow up you know what you signed up for. The narrator was ok, I just hated she read the book to us instead of for us. She should have read the book like she was Reyna. That's why the performance received only 3 stars.

Interesting story but the female character....

This was my first KA Linde novel. Blood Type was an intriguing paranormal novel and I was hooked from page one. This story had it all, vampires and humans, intrigue, politics, resistance, deceit, romance and so much more. The female character however spoiled this book for me, she was immature and extremely frustrating.
The narrator did an excellent job. She was able to voice the different characters and really brought every one to life.
The novel ended in a Cliffhanger and in spite of the female character, i did enjoy the story.

Good plot and story but the lead female character

The storyline is good as are the performances. However, there were some major inconsistencies in the story like one of the main reasons the main character talks the job is mentioned in the first chapter and never mentioned again. We aren't told why the main female character likes the main male character. . The main female character is super frustrating. Very naive and immature at times. I couldn't even finish the book which is a shame because the plot is really interesting.

I'm fueled by the rage this book induced

Reyna is stupid. So so so stupid. When presented with two options, she invariably chooses the dumbest possible interpretation of the worst option. I needed something to listen to while knitting and I chose this clunker. I disliked her almost immediately, but kept expecting her to get smarter. She did not. Beckham was also terrible and it says a lot that, in a novel full of murderous vampires, it was Reyna who annoyed me the most.

I haven't disliked anything this much in ages, but I've got more knitting to do so onward to book 2! Do yourself a favor and skip this whole series, unless infuriating and illogical are your jam.

So good

Full of twists and turns. So unpredictable. Sultry but sofisticated. You will love bex and be ready for book two.

Loved this book

Could not put the book down. I got really involved with the story and characters. At the end I looked for book 2. Blood mated. Can't wait for the next book.
