Blood Type (Blood Type Series #1) by K.A. Linde

Publication: April 24, 2018
Publisher: Random House/Loveswept
Source: Bought my own copy

A startling new vision of paranormal romance: When a human ventures into the world of vampires—a decadent milieu of blood-bonds and betrayal—she discovers that not all is what it seems.

For Reyna Carpenter, giving up her body isn’t a choice. It’s survival.

In a civilization laid waste by poverty and desperation, Reyna accepts a high-paying position with the wealthy and hungry vampire elite. Her new job is as the live-in blood escort for the intimidating, demanding, and devilishly handsome Beckham Anderson. He’s everything she expected from a vampire, except for one thing—he won’t feed off her.

Reyna soon discovers that behind Beckham’s brooding, wicked façade lies a unique and complex man. And that, in a dark and divided world, she is more valuable than she ever would have believed.

For with each passing night, Reyna can’t shake the sensation that it’s Beckham who’s afraid of her.

Note: Reyna and Beckham’s story continues in Blood Match.

Without giving too much away….Reyna feels like she has no other options left in terms of making money to help assist her and her two brothers, Brian and Drew. So she turns to Visage to become a blood escort. Even though she feels like doing this is the only way, she is still scared and a little hesitant because of how her brothers might react to the news. Vampires seem to be the more dominant/ superior species at the moment, while a huge chunk of the human population is poor and barely making enough to sustain themselves. There are quite a few prejudices between the humans and vampires. Each one seems to think they’re better than the other. And not many people want to help bridge the gap that divides them.

Reyna is the curious sort, she loves to ask questions and it’s hard for her to just sit back and no nothing when she believes someone needs help or some action needs to takes place.
Her life may seem like a fairytale once she gets a permanent position with Beckham Anderson, one of the top vampires at Visage, but appearances can oftentimes be deceiving. He is serious, very handsome, dedicated to his work, and hates people asking questions. Reyna coming into his life was not something he asked for, but he’ll make it work. They don’t make the greatest first impression though. Especially where Beckham is concerned…

The only thing that was really very clear was that Beckham Anderson was a complete and total asshole.”

Okay what else do I have to say about Blood Type...Well I feel like no matter what I say I won’t be able to do this book review justice. This book too me by surprise. It felt like one of those drinks a bartender makes that is delicious from the first sip, but it doesn’t really hit you until you start to move.

I have read other books by K.A. Linde, but they were all contemporary romance stories with tons of angst and drama thrown in. Which I loved. But this book is a paranormal romance and I was a little skeptical. I should not have been. It was just the right read for me. Even if this is your first time venturing into the paranormal world, Blood Type would be a great place to start. The story was addicting. I could have finished the whole thing in 24 hours, but I dragged it out, just so I could make the story last a little bit longer. This book did end on a cliffhanger, but luckily book 2, Blood Match releases June 26, 2018!

RATING: 4 out of 5.
