Review Take it like a Vamp By, Candace Havens

TakeItLikeAVampNEW_500_thumb-0x225Vampire Nick Christos might’ve been born in the Middle Ages, but the good old days seem tame compared to the last eight years he’s spent ruling the Supernatural Council. His only respite is with his cute neighbor Casey Meyers, a woman he wants more than any undead man should. Sure, he’s forced to take a cold shower after every encounter, but there’s no way he’ll test his own strength by getting too close to a human, and he’s not willing to risk her life–not with bloodthirsty family on the prowl out to ruin Nick’s life.

When said Nick’s kin shows up, the innocent Casey is caught in the middle of a centuries old fight, and Nick’s biggest fear is realized. Now, instead of keeping his hands off his neighbor, he’ll risk everything to save the human he’s come to love.

This was cute, and I do happen to love a good vampire book. But it was just ok.

The writing was ok, the plot was ok, the characters were ok…it was just ok.

The first chapter was slightly better than ok, which is probably what hooked me to the book in the first place. Nick is in love with Casey; Casey is in love with Nick. The only problem is that Nick is a vampire. People are trying to kill him; people are trying to kill Casey. There’s a lot of running, a lot of talking about fighting, and a lot of misunderstandings. The book was just whatever, very predictable, not enough passion. No real reason to waste your money or time. But if you’re Jonesing for a vampire book, this is one. It’s not that great but it’s not awful.
