She was looking for long-term. She wasn't expecting eternity! Just when Nikki Braxton has given up on finding a normal guy, she meets cowboy Jake McCann. Tall, dark and delicious, he could be the ideal man if he wasn't a vampire. Well, at least that explains his...uh...hunger for her.
Meanwhile, that down-and-dirty sex they're having is giving him the energy he needs to destroy his nemesis and break the vampire curse. Good thing, because being with Nikki makes him long for a normal life that much more.
But then Nikki is abducted. If Jake saves her, he may lose his only shot at becoming human again. Talk about damned if you do...
Nikki Barton has given up on men. They want her shoes, her clothes, or other men. Who needs them? That’s how she feels until she meets a tall, dark, and handsome stranger. One night of passion completely changes her view. Little does she know that her bedmate, Jake McCann has a secret – he’s a vampire and he’s Dead Sexy.
I love reading witty, intelligent romance. I love a romance that makes me feel what the characters feel. I also like one that makes me sigh or squeal at the end. The first in her Love at First Bite series, Kimberly Ray’s Dead Sexy does that and more. Once I started this novel, I couldn’t put it down!
For a hero, Jake McCann is a study in opposites. He doesn’t want a woman, but he wants Nikki forever. He doesn’t want to take her blood, but he wants to drain her sexually and make her scream for more. As for Nikki, women can relate to her man struggles. She’s dated plenty of loser-material men and simply wants a decent Mr. Right to walk through her salon door. Who could blame her for wanting a good man? You can also relate to her fear that losing her heart to Jake could be the biggest mistake of her life.
If you want a series that’s sure to make your heart race and to stick with you long after you close the book, then Dead Sexy is the book for you. Curl up with it on a cold night and let Jake and Nikki’s story take you away.
I give this novel 5 books!
