Bad Mouth Angela Mccallister.

ARC supplied by publisher.

I love a good vampire romance and this one was no exception. So many romances are jut a light, brief plot carrying the romance, but here Angela has given us a decent storyline and fantastic cast of charters that could (IMO) continue into a series. Val is definitely anti vampire when we first meet her, thanks to her ex husband but the delicious sexy vampire Kade, obnoxious and rude though he is, soon changes her mind. Funnily enough he’s been ordered by his superiors to work with her, a human investigator for the Vampire Liaison Organisation, knowing that he also hates humans. A match definitely not made in heaven πŸ™‚ Its really interesting the way Angela shows us via these two people how wrong it is to pre judge, to take things at face value rather than looking for the facts behind them, and as the truth slowly emerges the affect is has on Kade and Val is astonishing. I really enjoyed the way this part worked out and they learned the need to trust in each other, and not just act on their attraction to each other but to listen and understand the other person and their motives. There’s some terrific, steamy, sexy interludes between them – and their romance is one step forward two steps back all the way it seems. I like all of that, I don’t want everything to run smoothly but for there to be problems, blocks in the way, puzzles to work out.

The romance side of this book is great but the story carrying it was very good too, and it took some working out just who was moving the pieces behind the scenes. Loyalties were tested, and both Val and Kade were in for some big surprises.

As I said earlier Kade and Val were terrific characters, both very definite in their views about the other people around, and both were very strong minded. Val wasn’t going to curl up and be simpering and meek (once she found her voise at their first meeting!), even though Kade was drop dead gorgeous vampire prince and Kade, he wasn’t lying down to take any orders from a human! Even one as sharp and attractive as Val. Sparks flew as you’d expect and it made for an outstanding story, that kept me guessing what was going to happen right to the end. The others in the cast were interesting too and I think the main characters would transfer easily to further novels in the world Angela has created. I don’t know if that’s the plan, but I hope so as I’d love to read more from this group of characters.

As always from Entangled Publishing excellent editing and quality of writing, and at 180 pages for Β£2.63 its around normal pricing. It’s strong enough to bear a re read and that adds to the value for money for me, and its one to join the keepers file.

Stars: I love long novels and feel this has such a strong story and group of people that it could have been longer and I’d have given it five stars then but as it is for me personally its a four and half star read.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.

    Gosh Angela – i had no idea it was your debut novel – really well done on that! I add my reviews to here on the blog, that links to facebook, twitter and linked in, then i add them to amazon com and uk, goodreads and barnes and noble if they are there. I love reading and getting ARCs so that’s my way of trying to say thanks.

    You are awesome, Jeannie! Thank you so much for reading and reviewing. I’m beyond happy that you enjoyed the read. This is the first in the series πŸ˜‰ I don’t have a release date yet, but I’m working to get book two released before the end of the year. I know many are hoping for Ezra’s story, but he needs to stew a little longer, lol.

      angela – it was a real treat to read a vampire romance that had a decent backstory. there’s loads out that are just a fluffy romance with vampires – fine if you’re in the mood for a quick read but what i really love are series – books with a story you can get lost in, but that ends each time not goes on like some of the current trilogies, leaving reader feeling they’ve only read part of a book, and series tend to do twork well for me so I get excited at the mention of a new one from an author who’s work i can respect and enjoy. I’m so glad you’ve more planned as i think you’ve created a world and cast that has lots of potential. Well, books I’d love to read anyway and I know from the commnets on my reviews that lots or readers share my taste in novels.

        It’s fantastic to hear this is what so many readers are looking for πŸ™‚ And thank you so much for posting your review on Amazon as well as on here. It’s one of the best ways to support a writer (lol, especially a debut like me!) to keep those stories coming.

        I actually have tried to write light paranormal, but I just can’t do it! It doesn’t suit me. Though I tend to write characters who can banter with the best, the meat of the story tends to have a suspense element in all of my WIPs. So that is definitely something you can look for in future books πŸ™‚
