Happy Tuesday! There are a lot of really great releases coming out today. The one I was lucky enough to get my hands on was Blood Type by K.A Linde. This is her first swing at a paranormal romance. K.A Linde definitely hit a homerun with this one. Blood Type is unique, enthralling and addictive. This is the first book in this series and I am already salivating for the next installment. For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.
For Reyna Carpenter, giving up her body isn’t a choice. It’s survival.
In a civilization laid 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.
Reyna is desperate. She knows that continuing to stay with her brothers is just hindering their lives. She is unable to get a job without an education and she can’t get an education because she is too poor. This is why she has decided to work for Visage. In a world where vampires are real and becoming a permanent blood provider is a very lucrative job, Reyna sees no other option than to become one. What she doesn’t count on is being paired permanently to Beckham, a VP at Visage. Their attraction is complex but can they ever really feel for one another? When one is food and the other her employer what future can their be?
I adored this book. I was hooked from the first chapter. Reyna and Beckham are such complicated characters. They come from different sides of the tracks and can’t see how they would ever be truly attracted to one another. Add in the paranormal element of vampires and what a world would look like if they had all the power and money. This book is truly a complex story, not just a paranormal romance. K.A Linde has such a way of building a world that is relatable and realistic. The reader can really feel themselves being placed there. Blood Type is one of the best paranormal romances that I have read in quite a while. I’ve never felt the levels in a paranormal story the way K.A Linde has written Blood Type. You get action, paranormal, social commentary and of course, romance. This may be K.A Linde’s first paranormal romance but it sure doesn’t feel that way. I can’t wait to get my greedy hands on the next book. This is a guaranteed hit for all paranormal romance fans!
