Review: Legally Undead by Margo Bond Collins

Legally_Undead

Book Blurb:
Elle Dupree has her life all figured out: first a wedding, then her Ph.D., then swank faculty parties where she’ll serve wine and cheese and introduce people to her husband the lawyer.

But those plans disintegrate when she walks in on a vampire sucking the blood from her fiancé Greg. Horrified, she screams and runs–not away from the vampire, but toward it, brandishing a wooden letter opener.

As she slams the improvised stake into the vampire’s heart, a team of black-clad men bursts into the apartment. Turning around to face them, Elle discovers that Greg’s body is gone—and her perfect life falls apart.

MY REVIEW

Now that I have read Legally Undead, I have found another very good book by this author. This has a fresh twist on vampire hunters/killers. Elle is a fun, feisty, kick-ass female who, after losing her fiancé to a vampire, kills one and discovers a terrible secret about her fiancé. That secret leads to an adventure of vampire killing training, meeting Nick and his team, learning the ‘truth’ about vampires, and discovering that she is more than capable of rescuing her friend, Malcolm. In doing so, she bravely faces Deirdre, head vampire.

I laughed, cringed, got caught up in the story. I am not a fan of vampire stories, but I was open because I had read Waking Up Dead by Margo Bond Collins and had enjoyed her fresh twist on a murdered ghost detective. This offered a good twist on a vampire hunter and how to hunt them. Elle rocked. I enjoyed reading about her humorous POV.

I will warn that because of the killing there is violence described in this book. It is not graphic, but descriptions of the fights and killings are included and increase as the story gets nearer to the end.

There is one vampire that she didn’t kill that I was totally pissed off with her for not doing so. How could she let him get away … again?! The story is skillfully told, and just when I think I know what will happen, the author throws in an unhappy surprise followed by a very good one.This does seem to be the start of a good, suspenseful series. I’m curious where it will go from here.

EXCERPT

“Have I mentioned how much it sucks (no pun intended) to be hunted by a vampire? Ruins your whole day.

And your whole life, if you’re not careful.

I’d already lost one boyfriend to the vampires, I wasn’t going to lose another, even if he wasn’t actually my boyfriend.

So only one question remained: how do you break up with an un-boyfriend?”

My name is Dominic Powers. My software engineering company, DPS, is one of the top 500 companies in the world. Conducting a search for my Personal Assistant brought an unexpected candidate straight to me.

New Release and Review: He’s No Saint by AJ Harmon

He's No Saint book cover banner

Sexy, flawed Father Hugh fights for redemption… with tragic results

Whoa! What can I say about this? It could have been a trashy story about a messed up priest and a lurid sex story. But it wasn’t. Father Hugh has a past, a mistake that changed his life and that of his friend, Will, forever. He was Tyler, until he became a priest… filled with guilt because he wasn’t where he was supposed to be on that fateful day. A life was snuffed out, a killer on the loose. He blames himself.

This story starts with Father Hugh doing an act no priest should be doing, but we find out right away his motivation, his guilt, his need for release. An underlying theme is that regardless of your circumstances, if given the chance not everyone chooses to change their lives for the better. It’s not about rich or poor, but the decisions they make when a choice is at hand.

Will you forever blame that one mistake for the mess your life is in or will you be brave enough to face the truth and change the course of your life?

This is the challenge for Father Hugh, Will, Kitt, and Sister Meredith. Their choices reveal who they are and lead to some tragic outcomes… Yet there is love, lovemaking, hope, and tears. I was not expecting where this ultimately headed. There are so many layers to this. I enjoyed this and would recommend this for those looking for a story with emotional depth, sexy scenes, choices, second chances, and the love of a lifetime.

Note: I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

My rating out of 5: Aviary Photo_130440009182937277
