My Thoughts…

Wow, wow, wow!!!  I’m just blown away by Blood Type by K.A. Linde!! Like FLOORED!!  This book just knocked me out of my socks and straight on my a$$!!  With Ms Linde, you know you are going to get a great story, there’s a reason she’s always a go to author for me but Blood Type was just so much more than what I was expecting!!!  I FREAKING LOVED IT!!  This was the book that you read whenever you can!!  You read in the bathroom, at work, any free second you have you have your nose in your kindle because you cannot get enough of it!  This was Blood Type for me!  I cannot wait to see how the reset of the series will play out!  This is a MUST read for any reader who loves Paranormal Romance and if you’ve not read this genre before but loved Buffy the Vampire Slayer or The Vampire Diaries you need to check it out!! This was a HUGE 5 star read for me and I’m adding this one to my Best of 2018 list!! It’s that good!!

Reyna and her brothers are barely surviving.  They live in the lower class and have to use every dollar just to live. Reyna had to drop out of college as the cost was too high. Her brothers support her but their jobs at a warehouse barely pay for food and rent. Reyna knows she must do something to contribute and decides to do something she never thought she would do, apply to work as a blood donor to a vampire with the largest company in the world.  She thought she could get a regular job but when she goes for screening, she finds out she is a match for a new program that is just rolling out.  A permanent residence with a vampire with the same blood type. At first she is hesitant but knows the money will help her brothers and give them more than they could ever dream off.

Beckham is a top executive in Visage, a vampire company that is breaking through on how to sustain blood for vampires.   If you love that alpha that drives you crazy with his broodiness that you will love Becks!! He is assigned Reyna due to the match in blood types but the signals he gives Reyna will make your head spin.  Their chemistry is off the charts but there is more to Becks than meets the eye.    He’s all alpha and frustrating as hell! Why do we love the jerks??!!

There is so much more to this story and I don’t want to spoil it!!  The twist and turns were so unexpected and laid the ground work for an amazing series!! I cannot wait for the next installment in the series!  Blood Type will frustrate you, it will have you wanting to slap someone, and it will leave you on the edge of your seat!! Go one click Blood Type and see how it all plays out!!


That was the moment Beckham appeared in the doorway like a storm cloud.

Reyna straightened in her seat at the expression on his face. He walked across the room like a tightly coiled spring ready to explode.

“Ah Beckham, there you are,” Harrington said.

“Excuse me, William. I need to speak with Reyna. Alone.”

She hastened out of her seat and followed him around the corner. He tugged her straight through the kitchens, out the back door, down a corridor, and into a dead end. Then her back was slammed against the brick wall. His fist connected with the wall behind her, and she felt the wall shudder. Debris floated onto her shoulders.

“You left,” he growled.

“I . . .”

“No.” He pressed his finger to her lips roughly. She stopped breathing and just stared up into his eyes as dark as night. Her body trembled under the feral stare. “You left without me.”

The silence was weighted. All she could do was sit with their bodies nearly touching. His finger on her mouth. Her mind wandering to hellacious places.

“You are my subject. Can you imagine what it was like when I found you missing? When you turned up with three of my kind?” She shook her head minutely. He bared his teeth to her, and she shrank back. “These are meant to drink your blood. To drink you dry until there is nothing left of your body but a dry corpse. We are killers. We don’t hesitate. Just because we’re wearing suits and seem more like you . . . does not mean we are like you. We are not like you. They especially are not like you. The only way you get to the top of Visage is to be fucking ruthless, Reyna. Do you understand?”

“You’re . . . scaring me,” she whispered.
