Excerpt from Blood Type

She opened her mouth to ask another question, but then quickly snapped it shut. Some other time.

“Was there something else?” he asked.

The few feet of distance between them felt like an eternity. He was so close and yet so far, and she felt reluctant to ask the one question she had regarding their situation. The one question she dreaded.

“I read through your schedule and didn’t see anything on there about eating,” she whispered. “I didn’t know if it was a mistake or when . . .” Her voice trailed off as she watched the hungry glint in his eye reappear. Why the hell had she brought this up again?

“Why?” he asked, taking unhurried steps toward her. “Are you so ready to give your blood to me, Little One?”

Reyna stood stark still, uncertain how to respond. She wasn’t eager. She just wanted to be prepared. But the way he was looking at her set her blood to boil. She had never been looked at like that before.

“Well?”

He was directly in front of her now, and she couldn’t hide her racing heartbeat. She had unlocked Pandora’s box. Any minute now she would feel what it was like to have a vampire take from her. She felt shaky and afraid and like she couldn’t breathe, all at once.

Beckham raised his hand and slid it through her hair. Her eyes automatically closed at the feel of his large hands taking control of her. She realized it was the first time he had actually touched her, and it made her so very aware of how powerful he truly was. This was what she always saw brimming under the surface. With the weight of it directed at her, she felt as weak as a lamb beneath his fingertips.

Slowly he ran down the curve of her neck to the vein beating fiercely against her skin. She opened her eyes and was certain fear reflected back into them. Here were her fears magnified tenfold.

His head dipped down to the soft skin. She inhaled deeply as his lips caressed the tender skin. Her eyes fluttered closed again, and all thoughts seemed to flee her mind.

This wasn’t what she had expected. Terror, stark terror. That was all she had anticipated. Not this. Whatever this was fluttering around in her stomach and heating her lower body at his nearness. Some part of her mind told her to pull away; that this was the last thing she wanted . . . she would give her blood out of necessity. She wouldn’t like it. But it was quickly silenced by the soft kisses trailing up her neck.

Then she felt it . . . a sharp prick against her neck. Her entire body shivered in anticipation of what was to come.

And then she was roughly shoved away from Beckham.

Her body collided with the wall five feet from where she had been standing. Her head cracked back against it. It wasn’t all that hard, but she could already feel a headache blossoming, and her vision went blurry for a second. Her hand went to her neck where there was the faintest trace of blood.

“What? What happened?” she asked. Fear crept back in, obliterating everything else that had just shot through her.

He was breathing heavy and refused to look at her.

“Beckham?” she whispered, using his name for the first time.

His eyes snapped to hers. “Nothing. Nothing happened,” he growled, and then stormed from the room without another word.

She was so terribly confused.

Why hadn’t he followed through? Why did she wish he had?

 

Our Review

“Everyone is corrupt. Everyone is broken.”
“I’m not,”
she whispered.
“Oh Little One, this world will kill the goodness left within your beating heart.”
“But it will not break me.”
“No,”
he agreed. He leaned his head into her hair and drew a deep breath. “I will do that.”

We are paranormal readers at heart, it’s always been one of our favourite genres. If you’re like us in that respect then you’ll know what we mean when we say Blood Type was pure old school paranormal and we are so incredibly excited about this. Nostalgia eat your heart out, this is just what we needed and have been missing. Now whilst it felt old school there was no mistaking this for something we’d read before, rather it was a unique and original concept with passion, suspense and intrigue.

‘She wanted to make something of herself. One day she would. Every journey begins with one step. Hers began with this one. ‘

KA Linde slowly built a world of humans and vampires living alongside each other knowingly yet with a deep seated resentment brewing in the background. The affluent vampires living it up and the humans struggling in poverty. The vampires are without question in control but in the shadows a rebellion is brewing. Just who is betraying who and what truly lies behind the intentions of the Visage?

‘She wanted more. She craved him like an addict craved the next hit. She didn’t know what he did to her, but when they got like this, she didn’t care. It didn’t matter how infuriating he was, she was caught up in the whirlwind of their desires.’

Reyna our naïve and sometimes slightly frustrating heroine is trying to make life better for her two brothers as well as herself. Living in the slums with little to no escape she decides to sign up to become a blood donor at the prestigious company Visage which proclaims to serve the sole purpose of acting as a blood bank for vampires in order to stamp out -a literal blood bath- and also to match up vampire to human of the same blood group which prevents unnecessary violent reactions. Little does Reyna know that her blood means she’s matched to a very powerful vampire and not only that, she’s signing up to become his own personal blood escort.

“So that’s it? You said you’d never kiss me again…and now you have.”
“A mistake,”
he said callously. “Your emotions run high, and they send my…baser instincts into overdrive.”
“It couldn’t be that you’re a man desiring a woman?”
“No. It is an animal enjoying the hunt. The monster within struggling to get out. Nothing more.”

Beckham Anderson is an enigma. Affluent, secretive, aloof, superior and seriously frustrating but an oh so wonderfully lush and delicious brooding vampire who is clearly hiding what and who he truly is. There’s a steel wall encasing the heart and mind of our controlling vampire. Whilst there’s bouts of caring, attraction and protectiveness displayed he’s still an insufferable arsehole, but a lovable arsehole nonetheless.

“Come back.”
“What?”
“Come back….Stay with me.”
“Why? So you can keep stringing me along?”
“No, because with me is where you belong.”

This first book in a three book series was brilliantly written and a great introduction to a story we found to be immediately addictive. It was fast paced story wise yet the romantic element almost slow burn. Even though book one was push pull – back and forth we understood why and enjoyed that this aspect felt almost secondary to an evolving storyline of the inequality between vampires and humans and the fight that’s brewing just beneath the surface. A mystery is unravelling and we cannot wait to discover what truly lies beneath.

Synopsis

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.

    Hellow, I am a big fan of this blog and have been following you for close to a year now. I know this is untraditional but I wasn’t sure where to write a comment so I just picked your recent reviews to write on.
    I have recently read a book called Grip by keenedy Ryan, which is a beautiful book that touches a lot of topics and was Amazingly written. I was hoping you would read it not only so that you could review it but because it is a book that is worth being read by everyone. So I hope I am not coming if ad rude nor demanding but I really wish you would read this amazing book and review it so that I could have a place to gush about it. Once again a big fan from Ethiopia
