Instead, she’ll be surrounded by vampires at the fifteen hundredth re-birthday party of their leader.

A sweet novella, a love story about true soulmates. totally loved that the author gave us a complete story. It was too short but did not lack any details or leave us wondering of the outcome between the H&H.

In my completely unbiased opinion, this novella rocks!

Okay, I think that's all I should say unless I want to come off as arrogant or just plain weird.

Well I will say that I definetly enjoyed this read. I know the author, but she didn't freakin tell me that she wrote it or that it was available.... but I have my spies! BHAHAHAHAHA!


First of all the writing was excellent, clear, and concise. I didn't find any grammar errors, not that I'm the grammar queen, but if I see a grammar problem then the book sucks! LOL. None were here.

I loved Olivia (she had spunk). I also wanted to hump Daniel (the vampire.)

Ok so you're asking me... why not a four or

Book Description:
A second lifetime…

Party planner, Olivia, would rather be getting a root canal than be surrounded by vampires at the 1500th Re-Birthday party of their leader. With access to synthetic and donor blood, vampires are out and proud, living amongst the humans they used to secretly feed upon. And no one besides Olivia seems to have a problem with them.

As if her trust issues aren’t enough to cope with tonight, she also has to deal with her co-worker Daniel. Gorgeous, kind and

I really liked it. I won't say much so as not to give anything away, except that I love to be surprised by a book, and this one had me shouting at my computer! In a good way.

This is a really short story so I can't really say much. In a nutshell, this is a "short romance" about the Vampire who started it all. He's lived for centuries, and now he works with the humans, as a human and is in love with a co-worker. This last, he doesn't realize until tragedy strikes and he has to choose between what he is, and who he loves.

Overall it was an entertaining short story. The hero could probably have had a bit more alpha in him-- he was just too nice and soft for the Vampire

I am a big fan of Lauren Stewart and was excited when she sent me this book for a review. I am a big Paranormal reader and so a vampire novella is totally up my alley. This book is pretty much told in 2 parts....part one is the party and part two is after the party. Part one is hot and sexy but part two is emotional and full of longing.

Where do I begin? Oh I know it is to tell you that t

This was a quick, fun read but there was enough story here for a full novel. That left me feeling like it didn't live up to its full potential, with fully developed characters that I could care about. I liked the bones of the story, and would still recommend this for vampire lovers looking for a fast read, but I wanted more- or less, but a more developed less.

Another rating: 3/10

This story is not so much original, but I liked idea about vampires getting with their secret out. It was really boring for most time, but when vampires attacked I started to enjoy it. Well the twist was great and I would be really glad if it would ended with Daniel's death, that would be such an awesome impact but nope! He was brought back and this is my biggest problem! I just don't like reviving.
Another rating: 3/10

Olivia is in love with Daniel. Only problem? He's a vampire! Olivia does not trust vampires. When Daniel and Olivia finally take a chance, Daniel has a surprise that changes everything.

Excellent writing, depth, strong characters, violence, romance, mystery, thrills, and just a fun read. All that in a short story.

Love it.
