Review of Just My Blood Type

Just My Blood type
Carrie Clevenger/Nerine Dorman
Smashwords Edition 2011

   Romance author, Therese von Willyen, is bored to death sitting in her hotel room. She receives a mysterious text message telling her to meet in a bar called Pale Rider in a hole in the wall town of Pinecliffe, Colorado. She meets up with tall, dark, and brooding Xan Mercelles. Mind, he's a vampire. What could this bassist from the band Crooked Fang have to do with a romance author?
   The pair bat back and forth with questions and answers going from both sides. There is sexual tension just under the surface that never becomes full blown from either one of them. Therese never says anything about vampire; but there is a hedging under the surface where she may think without saying. Maybe it is just a wondering...
   This is not your usual vampire read. No sparkles in the sun for this vampire. There just seems to be a connection between our two characters with lots of tension going on. Therese sure made Xan smile or was it because he had the first Type O negative blood in a long time? This book is a collaboration between the two authors that is written flawlessly. The storyline reminds me of dialogue that you frequently see when you read a story involving a PI. It just fits so well and keeps you reading until the end. This was a short, fast read that is easily read in a single sitting. I am certainly psyched and ready to see more of Xan. He is definately tall, dark and brooding mixed with a little mystery.
   This book was offered free on Smashwords and reviewed by request of the author Carrie Clevenger. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions expressed are my own. I was not compensated in anyway except for receiving the book.

I give Just My Blood Type 4 out of 5 stars
