Blood Type by K.A. Linde- 5 stars [arc review]


My first book by K.A. Linde and there is no way it will be the last. I am HOOKED! As a fan of adult supernatural I am always in search of great plots (you know... they can be a bit too cheesy far too often) but this did not disappoint. I was intrigued from the very beginning. Yah, its a vampire story, but it is different and it will grab you and suck you in the whole way through.

The Blurb:

A startling new vision of paranormal romance: When a human ventures into the world of vampires—a decadent milieu of blood-bonds and betrayal—she discovers that not all is what it seems.


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.


OMG!!!! I would sell my soul for the next book. That cliffhanger is evil! I NEED to know what happens next.

Anyway... Now that that is out of the way I suppose we can talk about the book hey?
First of all, the plot is different. It is unexpected. It will keep you on your toes. And that is an art when writing on something (in this case vampires) that has been written a million times before. The mixture of main stream vampire lore and new exciting twists and turns made this an attractive read. And if you don't like supernatural all that much, still give it a go. It will be a good read for those who love 'rich guy gets the poor girl' romances too, you know... billionaire romances, or bad boy romances. Seriously, what is not to like?

I'm blabbing. That is not usually me. You will all forgive me right? 😉
Carrying on...

The main characters were captivating. 
Reyna is determined. She knows what she wants and what she needs and she is going for it. She is trying her best to make the best of a bad situation. It is admirable. 
I can't say I liked her in the end. You can't tell someone you trust them and back down 5 minutes later. That is so shitty... but you will all have to read the book to find out what exactly she did... 

Now let's talk about hot-broody-moody-fabulous-sexy-amazing-caring-hard to read-strong-resilient (and I can keep on going) Beckham! LOVED him! Can I have one of him please? How do you bring a character to life? I need one of those magic tricks... If any of you figure out, please let me know! 
He was a hard character to read at first but as Reyna slowly but surely got under his skin we found out more and more about him. There were so many different layers to his personality. 

The romance was a highlight for me because there was almost none. I know I know... that makes no sense. Let me explain: as they got to know each other, discover what makes the other 'tick' so to say their attraction became more and more evident but it is not till towards the end that both of them admit the extend of their feelings. We can guess it, we can see it coming, but it is never overpowering. This is a supernatural book with just the right amount of romance.

All in all, a fantastic read.
Now... dear author, or publisher, or gods of the brokenhearted readers... GIVE ME THE NEXT BOOK!!! 
Go Read Sunnies 🌞

The Book Hater's Book Club by Gretchen Anthony

The Book Hater's Book Club  at first appears to be about a struggling bookstore and its imminent sale. Elliot, the co-owner of Over the Rainbow Bookstore, started  The Book Hater's Book Club , a newsletter of reading recommendations for the self-proclaimed non-readers of the world, because he believed there was a book out there for everyone. Something I wholeheartedly agree with! For years he and Irma have kept the store going and always had a recommendation in hand. When you finish this book, you will have yet another list of books to read.  However, this book is about more than just books and a struggling bookstore. It is also about grief, the price of secrets, and a little more grief.  You see, Elliot is gone, and his grief-ridden business partner has agreed to sell the store to developers. Problem is, she didn't tell that to anyone until the deal was almost done. Which is making her daughters ask questions. Why is she selling? Is it grief alone? Is there something else

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancé and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she

Cruel Prince (Royal Hearts Academy #1) by Ashley Jade

Continuing with my newest obsession, bully romance, we now have Jace. Insufferable, hateful, vengeful Jace. Blurb: I never thought I'd step foot in Royal Manor again. But four years later, here I am... back to finish my senior year at Royal Hearts Academy. And forced to face Jace Covington. My first friend. First crush. First kiss. The one I left behind. Only—he isn't the same boy I gave my heart to. This new Jace is as cruel as he is gorgeous. And he's determined to make my life a living hell. Along with the rest of his glorified family and crew of tyrants. They expect me to worship the ground they walk on like everyone else, but I'd rather eat dirt. If Jace Covington wants me gone...he'll have to try harder. Because I've never been the kind of girl to play by the rules. Jace is cruel. Not as cruel as some of the other bully romances I've been reading lately, but he is definitely not a nice guy. Burnt by his past, still hurting from everything that happened
