I am here with my latest book review. This time it is Sara Hubbard's new release, and it is a paranormal romance. Now, normally I would probably say if paranormal romances are not your thing, that you would probably want to avoid this book. However, hear me out.... I would not say that I am a huge paranormal fan. I did enjoy the Sookie Stackhouse books, and I did read the Twilight books, so I am at the very least tolerant to it. Well, this book is different. I could see how someone who has never liked other paranormal books, could love this book.
It is very well written. The plot is unique and captivating. The characters are excellent, and very well developed. This book will cause you to abandon the "facts" you thought you knew about vampires, and that paranormal realm. It really offers a whole new take on it. Things are not what you previously thought them to be.
You will go on a paranormal journey with Emily, Sebastian, and Alexander. Emily was living a perfectly normal life, until one night she was bitten by a vampire. The vampire died, because as it would turn out, Emily's blood in deadly to vampires. Once Sebastian and Alexander (vampire brothers) find out about Emily's toxic blood, they kidnap her and her sister, and use her sister's life as leverage to get her to help them.
What they want from her, is for her to kill their maker, with her toxic blood. The journey to that point is a wild ride. I honestly think it is a ride you will enjoy. Forget everything you thought you knew about vampires, and embark on this adventure. It is truly a brilliant story, and I cannot wait to read the rest of the books in this series. This book was satisfying, but it definitely left me wanting more.
It is intense, romantic, steamy, intriguing, entertaining. I highly recommend reading it. If you continue reading, you will find a synopsis of the book, an excerpt, information about the author, and links on where to get a copy of your own!!

"...dammit if I don’t want very badly to be kissed right now. I lick my lips and wait for him to close the distance. His breath washes over me, and his presence feels warm though he’s room temperature. I wait a long while, at least a minute, but when I’m sure the moment is gone, I finally open my eyes, and he’s no longer beside me. I exhale, disappointed and confused. I’m glad that he didn’t do what we both seemed to want but also devastated that he didn’t."
"When Emily finds vampires in the alley behind her bookstore, she learns that nothing she knows about herself is true. Tainted Blood is a clever and erudite take on the modern vampire novel full of clever references, shifting allegiances, and powerful magic." Karen A., Line Editor, Red Adept Editing
