Vamps and the City (Love at Stake #2)
Who says a vamp can't have it all?
Darcy Newhart thought it was a stroke of genius—the first–ever reality TV show where mortals vie with vampires for the title of The Sexiest Man on Earth. As the show's director, Darcy's career would be on track again. And she can finally have a life apart from the vampire harem. Okay, so she's still technically dead, but two out of three...more
Well I did!
In this day and age a lot of people love to watch reality shows.
I’m not one of them but I acknowledge that they can have spark.
This particular vampire show made me shed laughter tears all over the place.
I love the humor in these books!
‘You see. It is easy!’ Otto started to lower the chair when he yelped ‘Aagh!’ The chair tipped spilling Maria Consuela onto the floor whit a splat. Her scream was cut off whe ...more
Cute fun story, light humor, light drama, extra cheese.
I like this series there is a sense of fun that you don't find with many paranormal romance reads. It's a perfect audiobook for those long drives, walks... when you just want something light to chuckle at and forget the time.
What happened when humans are sneaked onto the Sexiest Man in the Universe which is supposed to have only vampire contestants ? Will the sexiest man be human ? No, it is impossible, just ask the vampires. Yes, ...more
Boy meets mortal, mortal falls in love with vampire, vampire can't live without mortal. Sparkling may occur.
(Isn't that the best picture ever?)
Normally, I want to shake the crap out of the mortal.
But there's always a HEA, and that makes me happy.
I liked this story. First because the female vampire wasn't completely pathetic. She hates being a vampire, ...more
Not my cuppa. Fans of light, slapstick vampire humor may enjoy tho.
In this book, Darcy Newhart is the focus. In book 1, she was less than a bit player. In fact, I could barely remember her. I had to go on Kerrelyn Sparks' website to remember who and what she was. Here, she is lacking purpose and is very bored. I wasn't sure if she was a vamp ...more
MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD
1) He kept invading Darcy's mind with absolutely no reservations.
2) It took him such a long time to stop being so dense and prejudiced about vampires.
3) He wanted Darcy to change who she was. (And she wanted to change who she was to m ...more
I liked Darcy up until about 83% through the book. She got really hot and cold at that point about her relationship with Austin and it became really annoying. Other than that she was strong, indepedent, but also likable aside from her whiny "Woe is me, I'm a ...more
I was terribly disappointed. Their romance didn't convinced me at all. The first one because of the overuse of "I love you". I was sick of it. It seems they proclaimed their love in every page until I found it became a cheap thing. The second one was the fact that they were not in love, but in lust. There's no friggin way they loved each other when they spent so little time together (at the beginning of their confession). And I'm sick with the way ms. Sparks tried to convinced us, readers, th ...more
Nevertheless, I can't enjoy this books as much as I do others more serious. Comedy is nice, but makes me not take the book as serious as I take other prn romances. Even Lynsay Sand's books were a bit more mature and with a more developed plot than this ones. Maybe the problem is that the word that describes these books is "cheesy". LOL. I like them, ...more
Vamps And The City es el segundo libro de la serie Love At Stake de la autora Kerrelyn Sparks y tiene como protagonistas a Austin ( Adam ) y Darcy, personajes secundarios en el libro anterior.
Aunque en algunas ocasiones me costo un poco de trabajo engancharme con la trama es una historia que vale la pena leer solo por lo divertida que es, mientras leia no podia evitar reirme de las situaciones en las que se metian los personjes.
Si quieres una lectura ligera y divertida te recomiendo esta saga, t ...more
Combining comedy, romance, and some interesting situations this book has become one of my favorites.
Meet Austin, a man who believes he is helping save innocent lives by joining the CIA Stake-Out team and helping rid the world of the creatures known as vampires, who is on his next mission: join onto DVN's newest show and gather information on the vampires.
Meet Darcy, former journalist turned vampire hoping to start a ...more
I didn't read this series in order, like I usually would and should, but even though I didn't read it in order, I wasn't completely lost. Sure, you get more of a background on the characters if you rea ...more

Cute book. The series is enjoyable but I think I'm going to hold off on reading the rest because I do ...more
VAMPS AND THE CITY's plot of areality TV in the Vampire World similar to the Bachelor was a fun way to get Darcy and Austin together and to showcase some great side characters.
Like many paranormal romance series each book is about a diffe ...more
In this, the second book in the Love at Stake (ouch) series, I realized why I don't like the romance -- it's lust at first sight with "love" being defined entirely through chemistry. In this case, the two see each other, can't stop thinking about one another, and quickly decide they're in love despite the fact that nothing else draws them together at all. In the "that which keeps them together" vs "that which tears them apart" dynamic, the latter overwhelmed the former by quite a bit. A ...more
I actually liked Darcy, the main character in this book. She was strong, independent, quick-witted, has a strong work eth ...more
There's the usual instant attraction between mortal and vampire but what I appreciated is the parallel sides of both the Vampire and human world. I just love the vampiric counterparts, DVN is really amusing.
After four years, Darcy still couldn't get over the truth that she's a vampire. It took a mortal, Austin, to set her straight. I love t ...more

the ones where you inhale every book. and can't get enough of the world that they are created in.
I am falling in love with these vampires as they are falling in love with each other.

"4.5 stars" Vamps and the City was another great installment in the Love at Stake series. It was a really fun read that was essentially a paranormal spoof of The Bachelorette, except in this case, rather than having only one bachelorette, there are five, the cast-off harem of Roman Dragenesti from the first book. I'm normally not a big fan of reality TV and have never actually watched The Bachelor/Bachelorette. I wasn't quite sure how I would like the premise when I start ...more
Using the TV station as a backdrop was sheer genius...With Darcy being a reluctant Vamp and Austin a Vamp Slayer..but what I really loved was the reality show KS created it was a hoot! Slimy bosses and casting couches and all. Again KS has created great characters, a great story and a very fun read:)
A fun 3.5 star read for me. I liked it..but th ...more
