One life, one mate. Nicholas Konstantine has been waiting over a thousand years for his mate. But when he finds her, she's completely unaware of her Lycan biology, and she's battling her own personal demons. 

Kristen O'Connor is a recovering addict, with some major trust issues. By not letting anyone get close, she won't get hurt. Yet after one meeting with Nicholas, her walls are crumbling, and she wants more with this man. 

But Nicholas reveals his Lycan side, and hers as well. In addition, ghosts from both of their pasts come back to haunt them. Will they face everything together, or will Kristen's fears be stronger than her love?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a first read of this author for me and I absolutely LOVED IT! I cannot wait for the next book but it looks like it might be a while since this was published in 2015. The chemistry between Nicolas and Kristen was hot. I loved how real Kristen's character was with the flaws she was dealing with mainly in her mind as she had overcome her issues. For me I love when books such of this nature still have very real human characteristics and then those with some of the harder to relate to make it just more believable in my opinion. As normal with mates it is instant attraction, but with Kristen being raised human she doesn't quite understand it which I think is a universal thing when it comes to the "perfect man" showing interest in you. The side characters were perfect and I love the twists throughout the book and they were done just right. Yes there is a cliffhanger but it wasn't the worst one I've read but it will definitely leave the mind reeling.

The Vampire Hunter's Review

The Vampire Hunters by Scott Baker (ARC Review)
The Vampire Hunters Book 1
Re-Published February 3, 2014

"Monstrous, sadistic, deadly, evil, soulless... in short, true vampires!"

Synopsis -

As former Boston cops, Drake Matthews and Alison Monroe thought they had experienced it all... until they found themselves tracking down a serial killer who turned out to be one of the undead. Stopping him cost them their careers and almost their lives. 

Thanks to an influential and anonymous benefactor, Drake and Alison find a new job ridding the streets of Washington D.C. of the vampiric threat terrorizing the nation's capital. 

Only this time, Drake and Alison are not facing a single vampire but an entire nest led by Ion Zielenska, one of history's most evil and twisted masters. As the vampires indiscriminately prey on humans, seeing them as nothing more than food to satiate their hunger, they create a wave of violence that threatens to engulf the city. 

Orchestrating the carnage is Antoinette Varela, the mistress of the nest, whose vendetta against the hunters is personal.  (Goodreads)

Review -

"To Tiffany, Something to sink your fangs into. - Scott Baker"

What better way to start a read than with words that turned out to be true indeed.  Look for romaticizing of these vampires,  Baker shows them at their gruesome,  deadly best. While I do love PNR, I also need a good dose of vampires in the purest, rawest form. The Vampire Hunters truly fit the bill.  Readers will be taken into a dark world where the only standing between humanity and the undead are three unlikely heroes, and their mysterious, powerful, extremely influential benefactors'.

When seemingly a serial killer stalks the streets of Boston,  only one detective, Drake Matthews, realizes what they're up against is something far worst, a vampire.  Though he accepts the truth one family too late.  While Matthews finally excepts the impossible, and in the process probably saving more than a few more lives, his superiors nor his colleagues were ready to acknowledge such, costing him his badge.  None, that is, other than his partner, Allison Monroe.  Who follows Drake to rid the streets of Washington D.C. as they are overran by a particular nasty, sadistic vampire nest.  A nest led by two Masters' who take depravity to brand new levels.  So when "Mr. Smith" drops off a new recruit on Drake's doorstep it is none too soon.  Seeing as how Jim specializes in creating new and even more powerful weapons to use in the war against the undead.

A Fangtastic read for traditional vampires everywhere, regardless of gender.  Action packed with fight scenes so vividly detailed readers will feel as though they are right there taking part in the action.  Filled with blood, gore, thrills and chills to make every horror lover smile.
