Description from Goodreads

First rule of dealing with hot vampire bodyguards? Don't fall in love.

After losing both her parents before age seventeen, aspiring designer Caitlin Holte feels like her whole world has been turned upside down, and that was before the terrifying encounter with a supernatural force. Then, she learns that her hot bad-boy neighbor, Adrian—who might have just saved her life—is actually a half-demon vampire.

Suddenly Caitlin is stuck with a vampire bodyguard who feels that the best way to protect her is to become her pretend boyfriend. Trouble is, Caitlin is starting to fall in love for real, while Adrian can never love a human. Caitlin trusts Adrian to keep her safe from his demon father, but will he be able to protect her heart?

Why I'm excited


I thought I was done with you.

But you're back...

It's been a while. It seemed like a few years ago every book involved vampires. These days there's a lot more variety. There have been a lot of post-apocalyptic dystopian futures, sci-fi adventures, contemporary tear-jerkers, angels & demons, alternate worlds, time-travelers and magical fantasy worlds, but it's been a while since I met a new vampire. This sounds interesting and the early reviews I'm seeing are very positive. It is supposedly very fun and surprisingly witty. I'm also becoming a big fan of Swoon Reads, so I'm definitely looking forward to reading this offering from them. Oh, and I'm not gonna lie...the cover is what initially attracted me. It's really pretty. So, I'm ready for some vampy goodness! 

What are you waiting to read?

  6. Beautiful cover, and it does sound like an interesting one, I'll have to go add it on Goodreads. Thanks for visiting my WOW earlier!

    1. P.S. - Forgot to mention I love the Buffy GIF!!!

  7. Haha, awesome GIF. That cover is so pretty, I would read it based on that alone (I know, I'm a weirdo). Nice pick!

  10. I haven't read a vampire book in awhile either! I think I DNFed the last one I tried. :( Anyway, this one looks so good!

  11. I love me some vamps! Very excited! Remind me when it comes in! :)

  12. I'm so tempted to add this book, but the whole vampire thing turns me away. I don't know. It'll probably end up in my TBR pile eventually...
    Still, great pick!

  13. I still love vamps! Their a tried and true classic. Love the sound of this one! Hot vampire named Adrian never does me wrong! Thanks for stopping by!

  14. Love the cover of this one. It's been a while since I read a vampite story. Hope you enjoy reading it.
    Thanks for stopping by my WoW.

  15. I'm not really a huge fan of vampires but I love a good romance read!

    Here's my WoW

  16. All I'm feeling right now reading the synopsis is meh. Maybe it's the vampire thing, or because it kind of just sounds like any other contemporary with vampires thrown in? I need more to decide I guess, do like the cover though!

  17. I've heard amazing things about this book from friends who have gotten ARC's. I hope you love it!
