About the book:
Vampire Nick Christos might have been born in the Middle Ages, but those days seem tame compared to the last eight years spent ruling the Supernatural Council. The only respite in his long days of governing is with his sweet neighbor Casey Meyers. Sure, he’s forced to take a cold shower after every encounter, but no way will he risk anything more with a human. Not with his blood thirsty ex on the prowl and out to ruin Nick’s life.
But when said crazy ex shows up at the ball and flies her freak flag high, Nick has more to worry about than keeping his hands off his neighbor. He’ll have to stay closer than ever if he hopes to keep her alive, but will she want to leave him forever when she learns the truth?
I have always been a huge fan of Candace Havens. I especially love her paranormal romance books. They are written with the right balance of humor and sexiness. TAKE IT LIKE A VAMP is no different. Nick is one sexy vampire dude. He is super rich, super good-looking, and super nice. I liked that there wasn’t anything really wrong with him. He wasn’t terribly broody or angst-ridden. His only flaw is that in trying to protect Casey from things he hides some bits and pieces of his life from her. Casey is also an amazing character. She’s super flawed (in her own mind) and constantly puts herself down (and Nick builds her back up), but unlike most characters that act this way it didn’t get on my nerves. I’m not really sure why it didn’t, but I liked her warts and all. The action between Nick’s ex and Casey is fantastic. The story moves quickly and is hilarious. The sex (when Casey finally gets her way) is explosive. I’m hoping that we get more set in this world created by Ms. Havens. (I really, really want Nick’s best friend Linc’s story!!)
the book girl gives TAKE IT LIKE A VAMP a 5/5
