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.
Note: Reyna and Beckham’s story continues in Blood Match.
5 ★ – Dangerously Fun, Pleasantly Tantalizing and Deliciously Sexy!
It’s been such a long time since I’ve read vampire books, so I didn’t really have super high expectations for this one. The cover definitely lured me in and I was in the mood for something steamy and sexy. Well, this book completely took my breath away. It was so damn good and way better than I expected it would be. Oh and that insanely wicked cliffhanger had me thirsty for more. Ughh I don’t know what to do with myself. So glad I saw this book on Netgalley cause I am addicted and totally dying to sink my teeth into the next installment!
Blood Type by K.A. Linde is dangerously fun, pleasantly tantalizing, and so deliciously sexy. I was extremely enamored by the world building and storyline that I found it almost impossible to put the book down. It’s dark, mysterious, and quite terrifying at times, but incredibly fascinating. I’ve never read anything by this author, but I can honestly say that I am completely hooked. It’s definitely one of those books that would keep you up late at night fighting sleep as long as possible. I know I did and no regrets… Even if I had to load up on caffeine for work the next day.
K.A. Linde also knows how to keep you on your toes. The plot twist totally took me by surprise. I kind of knew there would be something in the end that would leave me in an emotional mess, but I was not prepared for that at all. It was like someone ripped my heart away and stomped on it over and over. I was hurt. angry and scared for Reyna and so sad for Beckham. Don’t want to spoil all the juicy fun so just be prepared for the FEELS.
I thought Reyna was a great MC. She was a tad bit whiney at times, but she had plenty of qualities that made her likable. She was passionate, determined, and a fighter. Beckham… where do I even begin. He was enigmatic, sexy, charming, and dangerous. He was hot and cold and at times even a little mean. He frustrated me and I wanted to slap him so many times, but like Reyna, I was undeniable drawn to him. Their chemistry was amazing and the push and pull between them was so addictive.
This book sucked me in, stole my heart and left me breathless. There’s romance, suspense, humor, steam, and intriguing characters. Blood Type by K.A. Linde is without a doubt an awesome thrilling paranormal romance book. I really enjoyed exploring this dark and dangerous dystopian world where humans and vampires coexist and I cannot wait to find out what happens next.
I received an advance reader copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
That was the moment Beckham appeared in the doorway like a storm cloud.
Reyna straightened in her seat at the expression on his face. He walked across the room like a tightly coiled spring ready to explode.
“Ah Beckham, there you are,” Harrington said.
“Excuse me, William. I need to speak with Reyna. Alone.”
She hastened out of her seat and followed him around the corner. He tugged her straight through the kitchens, out the back door, down a corridor, and into a dead end. Then her back was slammed against the brick wall. His fist connected with the wall behind her, and she felt the wall shudder. Debris floated onto her shoulders.
“You left,” he growled.
“I . . .”
“No.” He pressed his finger to her lips roughly. She stopped breathing and just stared up into his eyes as dark as night. Her body trembled under the feral stare. “You left without me.”
The silence was weighted. All she could do was sit with their bodies nearly touching. His finger on her mouth. Her mind wandering to hellacious places.
“You are my subject. Can you imagine what it was like when I found you missing? When you turned up with three of my kind?” She shook her head minutely. He bared his teeth to her, and she shrank back. “These are meant to drink your blood. To drink you dry until there is nothing left of your body but a dry corpse. We are killers. We don’t hesitate. Just because we’re wearing suits and seem more like you . . . does not mean we are like you. We are not like you. They especially are not like you. The only way you get to the top of Visage is to be fucking ruthless, Reyna. Do you understand?”
“You’re . . . scaring me,” she whispered.
Reyna Carpenter and Beckham Anderson return in the exhilarating follow-up to the provocative paranormal romance Blood Type.
