Review: Dont Blackmail the Vampire (Sons of Kane #2)

Don't Blackmail the Vampire (Sons of Kane, #2)


Don't Blackmail the Vampire (Sons of Kane #2)

Rachel Davis will do anything to get her sister out of a bad relationship with her fiancé. Even if it involves a few fibs, a little breaking-and-entering, and blackmailing the fiancé's potential boss, Charles, for his help. So what if the handsome Charles happens to be a vampire?

Charles Wright has found the perfect way to trap the man threatening his brother's wife: cozy up to him, get invited along on the skiing trip, and then search for incriminating evidence. How much better that audacious but gorgeous Rachel is just as eager to nail the bastard. As far as he's concerned, there's nothing wrong with a little blackmail between two consenting adults. Especially when it's time for Rachel to pay up.

 So Im a big fan of vampires -- I think about half the population is -- so when I saw this book and even realized that I have read the first book in this series, I was game for it. It sounded so interesting and I couldnt wait to dig in!

But when I finally did... I had a hard time with it. Eventually I just had to give up. Again (and I had this problem with the first book), the main character, Rachel, is sort of ok with the fact that she has met a vampire. Not what you would expect in that meeting. While Im happy that she had her fear about her, it just seemed all wrong. 

And again, as with the first book, I wish there was some background. I should have went back and read my review for the first one before I picked up the book because names are being pulled and everything, but Im still left hanging because I dont have a clue about the situation or who the characters, both main and secondary, are. 

Rachel`s sister and her sister fiance are mentioned in the second book, but thats basically it. But like I said above, the book looked so interesting, and it was such a good idea. But I couldnt get into it. It didnt stick with me, and Im not sure if its because the format I got it in was ruined when I had to convert it to be able to read it after inquiring about getting the right format to review and getting no response, or if its just the same thing with the first book and my tolerance has lowered since I have read the first book.

But what the hey, everyone has different tastes, so what I dont like, maybe you will? Dont let my review stop you from picking it  up! Might be the best book you have read all year. 

I received an ecopy in exchange for an honest review, and it in no way swayed my opinion. Rating is 2 stars.
