Love Bleeds by Maggie James

Love Bleeds (Only After Dark Series -Book One)

"There’s no such thing as vampires…

Straight-laced Katarina Renót is well educated, logical and doesn’t believe vampires truly exist. But when a well deserved holiday in Europe turns into a torrid game of cat and mouse with a handsome stranger and her best friend is exhibiting signs of being allergic to daylight-Kat doesn’t think her life can get any stranger.

Every man has a weakness…Even an immortal…

Joseph Markus is an arrogant, wealthy entrepreneur who spends his free time as the raspy lead singer for the rock band “Slang” and seducing beautiful women. After decades of mourning the tragic death of the only woman he ever loved, vying to save his best friend from an unrelenting death wish- now he is accused of being a murderer. 

An undeniable twist of fate…

Kat learns her Prince Charming is actually the “Prince of Darkness” and though she can’t resist falling for this sultry vampire, she still lives in denial. But when the lines are drawn, and Kat finds herself caught in the middle of a deadly plot for revenge she has only one choice--trust the seductive vampire who has captured her heart.

Despite his own arrogance, Joe finds himself inexplicably drawn to Kat. Her stubborn will to resist his seductive charms coupled with her endearing naiveté prove to be more than he bargained for and Joe soon realizes he is in way over his head.

But will love be enough to save their immortal souls from the grips of a twisted obsession?"

My Blurb:

Kat and Nina's vacation turns down a dark path as Nina becomes entranced with a guitarist they saw playing at a local club. Nina's strange addiction throws Kat together with the handsome lead singer, Joe. 

In the house of the band, Kat can't ignore her feelings.  
Can Kat resist the lure of Joe before it leads her to a path filled with blood and death? Or will love override it all and make her fight by Joe's side?

Lets Talk About It:

What a book! 

Maggie James paints such a vivid picture I felt like I was Kat's character! 

It started off a little bit slow for me but looking back it makes perfect sense at it takes you through every moment as if you were right there. By the time I knew it I was hooked and couldn't put the book down. 

I felt for Phillip throughout the whole book. I was proud of Nina and him begging her to love him. I was mad at Joe for various reasons and then thrilled with him in others. I loved Kat's character the most. She was so real with all of her reactions to everything thrown her way. 

I am so so happy that this is the first book in a series because I can't wait to read the next one!
