Review: Cherry Stem by Sotia Lazu

Turned at the cusp of a promising career in the adult movie industry, Cherry Stem has to rely on her mesmerizing vampire gaze for her meals and money. With the rent deadline approaching, settling for pocket change isn’t an option, so she reluctantly decides to let tall, dark, and handsome Detective Alex Marsden take her home for the night and fulfill her needs.

Only she gets more than she bargained for.

When Cherry meets Alex, she expects him to be nothing more than another “girl meets boy, girl feeds from boy, girl erases boy’s memories” hook-up. Once missing young women, the vampire council, and her irresistible ex are thrown into the mix though, she realizes nothing is as simple or random as she thought it was.

And Alex is either the biggest gift or the biggest mistake of her un-life.

This is a thrilling and erotic vampire romantic suspense that keeps the reader guessing.

Having to rely on her mesmerizing vampire gaze for meals, Cherry Stem reluctantly decides to let tall, dark and handsome Detective Alex Marsden take her home and fulfill her needs.  Only she gets more than she bargained for when the detective is attacked by other vampires and she discovers that he is investigating missing young women.  Throw in the vampire council and her irresistible ex and things get really interesting as she learns that nothing is as simple or random as she thought it was. Will Alex be the biggest gift or the biggest mistake of her un-life.

This steady to fast paced plot gets the adrenalin pumping with lots of suspense, action and romance.  The author captures the imagination with vivid images and details that make the reader feel as if they are part of the story.  The characters are strong, bewitching, attention grabbing and easily related to.

The attraction between Alex and Cherry burns up the pages and the frequent sex scenes are red hot and scorching, but the relationship has a few obstacles that must be overcome like the minor detail of Cherry being a vampire and the fact that she still has an undeniable and explosive attraction to her ex.  The emotions, personalities and passions of the characters leap off the pages which make it easy for the reader to get caught up in their situation as it unfolds.

The author has created a fantastic vampire world that I had to finish once I started. The author included a few surprises that the reader doesn’t see coming and of course left some things open, so I hope that means that intends to revisit this world in the future with another book and I would love to read Constantine’s story as well.Cherry Stem
