Netgalley Review - Raphael (Vampires in America #1) by D.B. Reynolds @DBReynoldsWrite

Vampires in America #1
by D.B. Reynolds

Goodreads blurb:  Malibu, California-home to rock-and-roll gods and movie stars, the beautiful, the rich . . . and vampires.

Powerful and charismatic, Raphael is a Vampire Lord, one of the few who hold the power of life and death over every vampire in existence. Thousands call him Master and have pledged absolute loyalty on their very lives. But when, in a brazen and deadly daylight attack, a gang of human killers kidnaps the one female vampire he'd give his life for, Raphael turns to a human investigator to find his enemies before it's too late.

Cynthia Leighton is smart, tough and sexy, a private investigator and former cop who's tired of spying on cheating spouses and digging out old bank accounts. When Raphael asks for her help in tracking down the kidnappers, Cyn's happy to accept. But she soon realizes her greatest danger comes not from the humans, but from Raphael himself.

Battling Russian mobsters and treacherous vampires, and betrayed by those they trusted, Cyn and Raphael find themselves fighting for their lives while caught up in a passion of blood and violence that is destined to destroy them both.

About the Author:  D.B. Reynolds is the award-winning author of the popular Vampires in America series, as well as other paranormal fiction. She lives with her husband of many years in a flammable canyon near Los Angeles, and when she's not writing her own books, she can usually be found reading someone else's.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 unicorns - I loved it!!
***Received ebook through Netgalley for an honest review

The cover was redone, and I love the facelift.  Let’s just say the eye candy is yummy :)  Definitely makes me take notice of the book :)

The book started a little slow as some first books do while building the world for us, but in no time at all, there was all sorts of action.  I have a few books that were realistic fiction, so I had to have a paranormal fix and chose this one because I needed a good vamp book.  D.B. also challenged my vocabulary in this book, so I had to break out my Google to learn some new words :)

Okay this is totally an adult book with several very steamy scenes that wow is all I can say :) Cynthia or Cyn as she is fondly called is an amazing woman who fits into my warrior category who doesn’t sit on the sidelines like a damsel in distress.  She definitely has issues thinking she is always unwanted because of her upbringing. 

Raphael, hmmm what can I say about him.  At first, I think I hated him for his arrogance and dictator like rule, but things happened and then BAM I loved him and wanted him for my own ;)

Watching Cyn and Raphael is infuriating and comical at times, but you can read the book to get more details.  This book has intrigue, betrayal, lust, battles, and so much more.  I can’t wait to read book 2 :)  Then I’m going to have to invest in the rest of the series because I won’t be able to not read it.

If you are a paranormal vamp book lover, you must read this book.  LOVED IT!!!

Interested in reading???
