I admit that I chose this book because the idea of a vamp with er, um performance problems caught my attention not to mention the setting was one of my favorite towns. The main characters were such polar opposites on the surface too with Samson being a vampire who owned a multi-million dollar security business and Delilah being a forensic accountant (yes, Samson and Delilah as in the two Biblical characters- haha).

The plot revolved around Samson and Delilah’s growing, but naturally rocky relationship and also the danger Delilah was in because someone was defrauding the company and had no desire to get caught.  Both Samson and Delilah have pasts that influence the present.  Samson has been betrayed by a lover who was only after his money and Delilah feels the need to maintain cool, calm control because of an incident from her past.  These things make them both fight their attraction and pull away from each other.  Then there is the elephant in the room- the ticking time bomb of Samson being vampire and Delilah being human and ignorant of vampires truly existing.

I enjoyed several elements. Samson and Delilah were combustible together and their passion and playfulness occupies much of the book.  There was also the conspiracy issue with shadowy persons working against the pair of them which added some danger and intrigue.  There were plot secrets that I worked out easily, but there was one or two that took me by surprise.  I also found Samson’s host of friends a great addition.  I look forward to continuing the series and reading their stories.

If you like hot and steamy with a dash of intrigue, this read is for you.

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.
