With immortal good looks and scorching charisma, Justin Bricker has yet to meet a woman he can't win over. His potential life mate should be no different. But instead of falling into his bed, Holly Bosley runs away and ends up mortally wounded. To save her, he has to turn her. And then Bricker learns the shocking truth: Holly's already married.
Holly wakes up with a bump on her head, a craving for blood, and a sexy stranger who insists they belong together. She needs Bricker's help to control her new abilities, even as she tries to resist his relentless seduction. Choosing between the world she knows and the eternity he offers is impossible. But Justin is fighting for his life mate—maybe even his life—and he'll break every rule to do it.
At A Glance
I’ve loved Bricker in this series. He’s a young vampire who gives everyone who finds their life mate a hard time as they have trouble in the wooing department. I was excited for Bricker to get his own book and for the other immortals to get a little payback. He was so naïve and cocky with his life mate it was hilarious. He seriously thought sex would solve all. *Spoiler* But get this, Holly, his life mate, is married. Bwahahaha. Classic. That’s what you get, Bricker!
The beginning was awesome. I never tire of a human finding out about vampires/immortals for the first time. Oh, the drama. Then…
…Things got boring. I usually love Sands’ books but I was bored to tears with this one. About a Vampire literally has no bad guy, barely any tension, and nothing exciting happens. Even Holly being married was written off pretty quickly. The whole book was Bricker trying to romance Holly and failing. Over, and over, and over again.
Then there is Holly, so effing dull I wanted to stab things. Holly is so blah that I kept hoping Bricker would realize it and dump her butt, screw the life mate crap. Hey, Holly, here’s $5, buy a personality.
Even though I love Bricker, him trying to have sex with Holly felt a little sleazy since she is married.
The sex was actually pretty good, though most of it happens in dreams. But whatever, a girl’s gotta take what she can get. There is a lot of sex in public places which really spiced things up.
Without an antagonist and with Debbie Downer Holly in the mix, About a Vampire had no chance. It’s the worst book in the series so far, though I am quite a few behind. I will still love the series but this was a bad apple in the bunch. Not recommended.
Sorry, I am so uninspired I don’t even want to share a quote.
