For the record, I’m not usually a paranormal book fan. Did I read and like Twilight? Yes. But since then I really haven’t touched anything that had to do with vampires. Until now… Why did I choose to read this? Well… the book synopsis sucked me in and I said what the heck. Since I haven’t, until now, reviewed anything in this genre I figured I’d mix things up a bit. What I wasn’t expecting was to really like this book! I wouldn’t classify this book as just Paranormal ~ it’s really a Contemporary Paranormal Romance and Robin has sold me on giving this genre a chance!
Sex and the Single Vamp was exciting. The sizzle between the main characters, Cici and Deacon, was red hot. They have more than just physical attraction; they have 200+ years of history between them which made their emotional connection very believable. The story jumps right into these two wanting to get it on, which normally makes me say “Yeah, right… like that’s realistic” but in this case, it totally worked because we know they have history.
I love an alpha-male that isn’t a douche and Deacon totally made me swoon. He’s stubborn and sexy and very, very protective, especially of Cici. When Cici’s life is threatened and she goes to Deacon for help, he goes super alpha and stops at nothing to protect her. But he doesn’t just want to protect her… he also wants in her pants! Cici can’t resist Deacon and, for the record, I wouldn’t have been able to either! When they finally end up getting it on, after 200 years of dancing around their attraction, holy moly do the fireworks explode! I’m telling you… hot!
One of the things I loved about this story was the fact that it spanned over 200 years. It was interesting to hear about historical events that shaped their relationship into what it is today. I enjoyed this book from start to finish and will definitely be reading more of Robins work! Sex and the Single Vamp will release on March 24, 2014 and is available for preorder now!
My rating: 4.5 stars
