Blood Type
Blood Type Book 1
by K.A. Linde

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.

❃❃Blood Type releases April 24th❃❃

Momma Says: 3 stars⭐⭐⭐

Blood Type is a well-written, interesting story of a world where vampires are in control and most humans are living in poverty unless they're willing to submit to those in power. The story is fast-paced and filled with danger, betrayal, intrigue, and even some steamy moments for our main characters. All of this should have easily made this one a four or even five star read and I did enjoy a lot of those things. However, my problems lay with the characters and their so-called romance. So much about Beckham and Reyna is a bit too close to Twilight - he's the brooding vampire, determined to stay away from the weak human but just can't seem to do that, and she's the stubborn human whose blood smells way too good, and she seems to have an uncanny knack for running headlong into danger with no regard to the consequences, almost in spite of Beckham's determination to keep her safe. The biggest problem is that this pair don't quite pull it off. They lack that special something that would make me want to root for their happy ending. That may be in part to the fact that I never really warmed up to Reyna. She's immature and her back and forth about Beckham grew tedious and frustrating. She's throwing herself at him one minute, even when she thinks he's otherwise attached, and pouting and hating him the next. There are some unpredictable twists and one whopper of a cliffy, but considering my feelings about this couple, I'm still on the fence about whether I'll continue with the series.
