Andrew Valentine has a great new take on Vampirism: Endorphins…and Blood.
We meet Michelle and Scott, a young couple, very much in love. Scott has major baggage from his childhood, and is having even greater issues and dreams after an encounter in Central Park. The couple decided to go out and are at a local bar where Jong, aka Gina Lee, enters their life. The couple brings Jong home, and they all get cozy. Michelle wakes in the a.m. alone in their apartment. Scott. Is. Gone
This is where we all start the story of the past, of the Vampire Xiamora, and the story of the Keep. This book is erotic, but most of all, we have a fine sense of the strength of love over sex.
Michelle recruits some of her friends and hires a private detective to help her find Scott. I loved Michelle for her strong bullheadedness to find Scott, and her fierce determination to keep him.
In the end, we come down to Michelle having to choose between sweet things or Bitter Things to complete her life. Take the ride with them and see for yourself. What would you have chosen in her place?
Hope Andrew is not finished with this… Hopefully he can give us a sequel…
Looking forward to it!
