    Blood Bank

    I have been a vampire watcher since I was a teenager and Dark Shadows hit the TV. Since that time I have read countless books on the subject and enjoyed other current TV offerings. So.. I can say with fang-objectivity that Blood Type is an original tasty drink. Lowly but independent Reyna sees no other option but to offer herself as a blood donor for a monetary return. But of course new rules to the game are not revealed until there is no turning back. Instead of a temporary assignment all placements are permanent. Beckham is a dark dangerous and rich vampire who takes possession of Reyna. Much action and politics lend itself in Blood Type. Linde leaves her amazing characters on a cliff hanger but with the high caliper of this novel stars are not deducted. A copy of this book was supplied byRandom House Publishing Group - Loveswept via Netgalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion."

    4 Stars!

    I feel like at this point vampires are written about a lot. Some are done really well and some are overdone and cliche. Linde manages to give a semi fresh and exciting look at the vampire / human relationship during what might be considered, but isn't necessarily, a post-apocalyptic / major economic downfall in the world. Now humans are living in slums and planning a rebellion and the vampires are slowly taking over... I was hoping for something completely different and was not disappointed. Some who are desperate, like Reyna-our heroine- find themselves in the employ of VISAGE a vampire run company that pairs vampires with human blood donors. Reyna signs up to be part of a new program that pairs her permanently with a vampire or until one of them break the agreement. Her pairing leaves her stuck with the infuriatingly silent and extremely handsome and frustrating Beckham who is one of the top Vampires of Visage. There are of course hints at a love triangle, a very well done antagonistic and wonderful world building. Some suspense and mystery to keep us even more interested. I should have, but I did not expect the slow burn, and the mixed feelings from both characters. Lindy is known very well for writing fabulous characters that you just want to wring their neck because they're so frustrating but you keep reading because the story is just so fantastic and you have to know how it ends. I did start to put things together at about 75-80%. Things were starting to click and make more sense. I was beinning to worry when I hit 85% because, how in the world was she going to wrap this major issue up? Unfortunately for us readers this one ends in a major cliffhanger which requires us to wait for the next book. This doesn't necessarily bother me though, I'm excited and curious to see how Linde pulls book 2 together, which I will most definitely read.

    *5 Stars for the 1st of a fantastic PNR series!

    This series has been at the top of my “most anticipated” reads since Kyla announced it. I am usually not over the moon into this paranormal type genre mixed with some romance, but Kyla found a way for this first book in the series to consume me and I devoured this in 2 sittings! The first of the series, Blood Type, we are thrust into a world that is very different from our own. Vampires have changed the world and the way humans live in it. In an almost dystopian society of sorts, Reyna seeks out a job at the largest company in the world, Visage. She is placed with the very brooding and mysterious Beckham Anderson. He’s a higher up in Visage and she is placed with him as his blood escort. What she expects her world to look like, is far from what occurs once she steps foot into Becks life. The things she wants from him, he won’t give her. The things she was expecting from him, she doesn’t get. While their chemistry is obvious form the first moment they meet, the distance he places between them is very surprising and unnerving to Reyna. Becks is a character that provides us so much angst and edginess, you are not sure whether to love or hate him (I choose the later). As the story begins to unfold and new characters are placed into the mix, you see what is really going on in this world of humans living amongst the more dominant vampires. As expected, Kyla has added enough twists and turns to keep your head spinning throughout the entire book and not know where or when it will stop. This is the first of a series of 3 books and does end in a cliffhanger. Even if you aren’t a paranormal romance reader, you will be after you read this book. My whole perspective on the literary world was jolted into a tail spin. Kyla has managed lure me into this genre and my new obsession over this series! Blood Match, coming June 26th. My heart, dying slowly everyday til then.

    4 Amazing Stars

    4 Stars!! This book is the first in the Blood type trilogy and gives you an introduction to the world that Reyna Carpenter lives!! A world that is ruled by Vampires and Humans are more of slaves to them... Reyna lives with her brothers in poverty.. To help them, she decides to become a blood escort for the vampires... However, when she is assigned to Beckham Anderson and enters the vampire world, she does not know that her world is gonna be uprooted!! I loved Beckham.. He was a mystery and not easy to like at the start.. Infact I kind of wanted to kick him at times!! However, you cant help yourself but fall in love with him when the story unfolds... And Reyna - her whole life turned upside down in a day and she was such a strong person that she fights hard to survive and be independent at the same time.. I cant wait to read more of Beckham and Reyna and the vampire world where a revolution is waiting to start! And with the way this book ended, I already want to read the second book. And even the short wait is a torture!!. I have read a lot of paranormal, but the world created in this book is so unique!! K.A. Linde never ceases to amaze me with her words in every genre she writes!!

    Great Paranormal Romance read!!

    In a world where vampires are the norm and in control of everything- a world that believes humans should register themselves as human, live, fresh blood escorts as they call them. Beckham Anderson an all encompassing vampire who sits in one of the top spots for Visage a company on the forefront trying to make changes to the process of whom Vampires feed from. A perfect match is what they called it. A new project where a human is a permanent employee of there’s placed with a sponsor (Vampire) according to their blood type. Reyna Carpenter a young girl that feels like a burden on her loved ones looking to help her brothers even if she has to resort to the last thing she wants. Reyna sets off on a path that will bring her and Beckham colliding into a relationship they both try and fight. A fairytale of sorts where she has all the money she could ever want, always finding trouble and he is always her savior. A savior, a sponsor and a vampire that refuses to feed of her “his perfect blood type match”. This is my first read by K.A. Linde and definitely will not be my last- I need more Beckham and Reyna.
