Kendra used to spend her days organizing events for Café Enigma while daydreaming about Marcus, the sexy lead singer of Normal Paradox. But all those dreams of becoming Mrs. Rock Star died, along with her mortality, the moment Hector entered her life and turned her into a vampire.

Ten torturous years later, Kendra finally escapes Hector and runs straight into Marcus. (Well, actually, he hit her with his car, but that's beside the point.) The accident leaves Marcus concussed and a few pints too low, forcing Kendra to share her blood to save him.

Sharing her blood doesn’t just heal Marcus’s wounds; it bonds him to Kendra in a magical “can’t live without you” sort of way. Now he’s professing his undying love to her, and Kendra’s not sure if he’s for real or just experiencing the side effects of their new blood bond. Either way, the two of them can’t be separated without suffering suicidal levels of depression, and the band needs to hit the road for the rest of their cross-country tour.

Kendra’s content to travel with the band and explore her new-found relationship, until whispered threats from her master, Hector, start invading her dreams. He’s tracking her down, and she can feel it. She knows the horrors he’s capable of, and if he finds out about Marcus, Hector will do everything in his power to destroy him.

If she stays, Marcus is doomed to Hector’s wrath. If she goes, the repercussions of their bond might kill Marcus. Both options will break Kendra’s heart. If they’re truly meant for each other, they’ll have to find another way....

My Review

I know some of you are sick of vamp books, but maybe you're like me and still enjoy a quick bite.  Katie Salidas has written a solid vampire romance. I enjoyed that the vampires didn't stray to far from the classic vampires. You know not all vampires are good. There is still some evil ones.

    The characters were well written and had unique voices. I do wish I knew more of Marcus's character. He's the only one I felt needed a bit more attention.  The plot was fun and had an interesting twist. I slammed this book in a very short time. It was easy to flip through the pages with out hesitation or need for a break.

  I think it's really awesome they have music mixed in, I wonder what the soundtrack to this would sound like. I know Katie has written some more ebooks that I hear are worth checking out.

Great review! You had me at "quick bite".

Have you ever visited Supernatural Snark? She does this feature where she playfully mocks and breaks down covers. I bet she could have a field day with this one :)
