Review: Blood Hunger by Beck Robertson

Can a vampire with deadly enemies conceal her nature from her mortal lover when the pair are framed for a murder they didn’t commit?

Raven-haired femme fatale Lola Devereaux is used to wrapping men around her finger, but when handsome Dillon Chambers walks into her life, passion sizzles between them. To her surprise, she finds she’s the one who yearns to submit this time.

But Lola’s keeping a dark secret. Lola is a vampire, and she fears that if Dillon finds out, he’ll reject her forever, just like her mortal ex did.

Keeping a secret this big is hard enough, but when the urgency to feed causes Lola to make a serious lapse in judgment, an old enemy takes the opportunity to wreak revenge, putting Dillon in the frame for murder. Lola has to find a way to clear his name or risk never feeling his strong arms around her again.

Does one stupid error have to mean kissing goodbye to the only guy who makes her heart race? And is telling the truth really so incompatible with true love?

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of public sex and spanking.

As a vampire, Lola needs to be in control in all areas of her life. But when she meets Dillion all bets are off the table. Her need for control slips and he commands her body in the bedroom. Lola makes a huge mistake by trusting the wrong person, the life she has found with Dillion gets tested.

I really wanted to like this book. Vampire PNR are my go-to books, so when Blood Hunger was offered to review I jumped on it. And some parts of it were great. The whole BDSM scenes were hot and tantalizing. I liked the way that the author portrayed Lola as a man eater. She took what she wanted and was not ashamed of who she was, well at least not the vampire part anyways. Dillion being the sexy corn-few cowboy was sexy in all his mysterious ways. What’s better, he is a closet Dom. It is like one minute he’s a sweet and shy cowboy, then behind closed doors he will play your body like an instrument. The characters were also well thought out and fun to read, especially Max.

What was confusing to me about the book was the whole vampire aspect. Yes, there was the needing to feed and blood drinking but that was it. I mean at the beginning Lola can tall who is a vampire and who is not. And how all the other vampires can go out in the sun and she cannot. As a vampire lover, every author has a different story to tell and when I read a new one I always try to keep an open mind. It is just strange to find a vampire who is disgusted by rats, bugs, and things that go bump in the night; plus she was not very strong. Then she was turned at 17 yet looks older than that. All vamp books I’ve read either do not age or age very slowly. There also was not many fangs involved which contrary to vampire books.

Overall, it was a good read with a few mistakes here and there. It had great potential but for me it fell flat. I might pick up the next book because the way it ended it felt like there was more to the story. I will definitely be picking up another Beck Robertson because she can write a mean BDSM scene.
