Bitten: A Vampire Blood Courtesans Romance by Kim Faulks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
your money or your life, that's usually the question. now it's your money or your blodd (and a little something something)
nova tried her best to be perfect for her boyfriend jared, only he really didn't appreciate her. when things go from bad to worse and a vamp enforcers comes to warn him, she can't help but jump in. when the vampire turns to her she better be afraid, very afraid.
as Kol walks away from the last couple of humans he had to scare in paying up, he couldn't help but feel protective of the female. as she later turns up at the club he's livid she dared to endanger herself by even coming her. how naive can you get? but somehow she got under his skin and he had a hard time getting rid of that feeling. with a few calls made, he took over the debt of her dead beat boyfriend and started tracking her down to tell her they had more time. the place where he found here only made his unhuman blood boil! her boyfriend convinced her to sell her blood as a blood courtesans, only he forgot to mention it wasn't only blood that was exchanged! nova was outraged hearing the sex was on the menu as well, but instead of standing up for herself she just went with the flow of things. not even Kol's presence could sway her.
scared and defeated she did what needed to be done, secretly hoping Kol would come in and save the day.
i did enjoy the overall story. i however hoped that there would have been more interaction between kol and nova. i also understand not everybody is classified as a heroin but nova could have grown some balls. she saved herself for years and then when she finds out jared sold her blood AND her virginity : she could have been a bit more upset and fight a little for what she believed in for so long. that's my only really "bad" remark about the story. Kol, well Kol is Kol, mysterious in his own way yet likable for what he does.

- I'm a rookie writer enjoying the flow of words sprouting out of my fingers. Sometimes it goes easy, at other times it's a real struggle. I love and crave any kind of feedback, good or bad. I write when I can, but a husband, two kids, 4.2 cats (aging from 15 years to 4 months) do take up most of my time. Yet I found the time to try out something I never thought I was good at. I started writing. I came to love it and enjoy the new friendships I've made with fellow writers I simply adore (well I like the writers, but adore their work *grins*)
