Graphic artist Casey's life looks pretty good on
paper....she's living in a great apartment in Dallas with
transgender Aunt Teddie; has a great job in graphic design;
and a wonderful best friend Nick. Only problem is, Casey
a homing beacon for assholes....she hasn't had a decent
in months. Casey has serious self-esteem issues and to
it off, she has a serious crush on her best friend Nick --
the guy who commiserates with her after bad break-ups,
out with her, and watches Twilight, True Blood, and all the
other vampire shows Casey is addicted to.
Nick is rich, gorgeous, and perfect....but he's keeping
secrets too. He asks Casey to attend a charity function as
his date one evening as a favor to keep the "charity moms"
and their eligible daughters off his back. He convinces
Casey to attend and treats her to a Cinderella like make-
over. Nick's true feelings for Casey become abundantly
clear during the charity event and the days that follow.
also becomes clear to Casey that his life is not all that
seems. Casey's life is put in danger by being seen with
Nick and he has to provide her with 24/7 personal guards.
Nick and Casey pursue a new love while running from danger.
TAKE IT LIKE A VAMP offers a unique insight into how the
Vampire council could work as a modern business. I liked
the way vampire and supernatural politics were represented
in a fairly modern sense, but still retained the old-world
charm. Overall, I found TAKE IT LIKE A VAMP intriguing
with the mix
of romance and mystery/thriller. However, there were times
when it seemed the storyline with Nick and Casey seemed to
drag on a bit....I just wanted to shake him and yell at him
tell her already. I would definitely read more books by
Sure, Nick Christos was born in the Middle Ages, but
those days seem tame compared to the last eight years spent
ruling the Supernatural Council. The only respite in his
long days of governing is with his sweet neighbor Casey.
Sure, he's forced to take a cold shower after every
encounter, but no way will he risk anything more with a
human. Not with his blood thirsty ex on the prowl, and out
to ruin Nickâ€™s life.
But when said crazy ex shows up at the ball and flies her
freak flag high, Nick has more to worry about than keeping
his hands off his neighbor. He'll have to stay closer than
ever now if he hopes to keep her alive, but will she want to
leave him forever when she learns the truth?
