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.
I have been wanting to read K.A. Linde for a while, but had not gotten around to it yet, so when I had the chance to review Blood Type, I jumped on it. Though I have read paranormal stories before, they are not what I tend to read, but I was so very pleasantly surprised reading this! I devoured this book!
In Blood Type, vampires are the rulers and humans fight to survive. Reyna Carpenter needs to help her family and when all else fails, she decides to become a blood escort. Reyna wanted to be strong and was determined to do what needed to be done.
Beckham Anderson is a wealthy and very commanding vampire. He is dark, sexy and full of mystery. He was a cold and distant, yet there were times we saw a bit of a thaw from him. I loved him, even when I was frustrated with him!
Reyna’s brothers were doing all they could to survive and care for her, but she realizes she needs to do her part as well. So, she becomes a blood escort, someone who provides blood when needed, and was partnered with Beckham. She was so unprepared for him. He on the other hand seems to be interested in everything but Reyna.
As I mentioned, I have read paranormal books before, but they are not usually my go-to for reading, however, to-date, Blood Type is the best PNR book I have read. I was riveted by this story and cannot wait to get my hands on the next book! The story was full of angst and that ending! I have a new-to-me author for sure!
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.
