Take it Like a Vamp, By Candace Havens


Vampire Nick Christos might’ve been born in the Middle Ages, but the good old days seem tame compared to the last eight years he’s spent ruling the Supernatural Council. His only respite is with his cute neighbor Casey Meyers, a woman he wants more than any undead man should. Sure, he’s forced to take a cold shower after every encounter, but there’s no way he’ll test his own strength by getting too close to a human, and he’s not willing to risk her life–not with bloodthirsty family on the prowl out to ruin Nick’s life.When said Nick’s kin shows up, the innocent Casey is caught in the middle of a centuries old fight, and Nick’s biggest fear is realized. Now, instead of keeping his hands off his neighbor, he’ll risk everything to save the human he’s come to love.

                Oh this book seems to be to have the best of all the paranormal worlds in it.  There are vampires, werewolves, witches, and who knows what else might pop up during the story.  There were some parts of the story where it was almost overwhelming the different characters and creatures that were out there.  But, like I said, there were only parts like that.
                Casey’s character was hilarious at times; her sense of humor was off the charts funny.  Nick’s character was very serious, which I think was a great balance to Casey.  Even the secondary characters such as Linc, were well written also to the point where they each had their own little quirks that you wanted to find out.
                My main complaint about this book would be Casey’s feelings towards herself.  I do understand how some women are very self-conscious about their bodies, but in my opinion, Casey’s went very far.  She “talked” about how she was exercising to lose the weight, and how she was on diets to lose the weight.  Even when someone would give her a compliment, she would turn it away and start thinking about how she thought she looked.
                All in all though, I really enjoyed this book and I would continue to read more from Candace.
