    “What you’re doing right now is telling the boogeyman that you’re afraid of the dark.”

    I was quite surprised by how much I enjoyed this story! I didn’t felt bored in any part of the book, the plot was fast paced and it kept me entertained from the beginning to the end. "The Human Cure" might have vampires in it but it uses this theme in a unique way and gives its own twist for these creatures.

    I loved all the main characters, Hunter’s kindness and altruistic personality was so touching, he mi

    *I received a free ecopy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.*

    This book was such a pleasant surprise!

    I have to admit, the cover didn't give me the highest of hopes, and I try to stay away from books with less than 200 pages as it's usually just not enough time for me to connect to the characters or really get into the story. But I am so glad I gave this book a chance.

    First of all, it was funny, mostly thanks to Chase. He killed so many people, being a

    Welcome To A New Vampire World Created From the Imagination Of Tracy Auerbach

    How Do You Like Your Vampires?

    Loving, Kind, Scary, Cruel?


    Author Tracy Auerback has created a vampire world I have never seen before. This is a tale of vampires in the down and dirty world they occupy below New York and the world where they hunt. It is raw, gritty, gory, and filled with monsters. It also a story of love and sacrifice.

    I got to read this book in return for an honest review so here goes my first R2R experience :)

    Kate thinks her life is going nowhere until a one night stand with Hunter, a vampire, lands her in an underground world of darkness beyond her wildest imagination. Circumstances throw her together with Chase, Hunter’s cousin, and she starts to feel a strange empathy towards him. Expect the unexpected with this book.

    This is not your average vampire book as a lot of people will tell you and that’s what I

    I received a copy of this book from the author via LOP for an honest review.

    I have been looking for something that is different from my usual hot Vampire reads. This was it. Nice sweet romance with a fast paced and well written plot.
    This is not your typical Vampire romance novel. There is a lot of ripping, tearing and eating. No hot lovey dovey stuff here.

    The plot revolves around three main characters.

    The Human Cure is a fun fast-paced paranormal romance. The anti-legends that Auerbach added about vampires and vampirism were awesome. She added a new twist to the world of vampires which was consistent in her created universe. This is the best part for me. I always love seeing people’s takes on vampirism and other old legends.
    The book revolves around Kate Plesser–an office assistant who tends to fall into bad relationships– as well as the vampire cousins Hunter and Chase. Kate meets Hunter in a

    This story revolves around Kate, Hunter and Chase. When Kate is kidnapped by Hunter and taken to an underground city, she finds out vampires are real and need to breed. She of course hates Hunter so he puts his "cousin" Chase in charge of protecting her.
    Hunter isn't a typical vampire having been raised by humans until he was 16. He's never killed anyone having learned to live off of food and animal blood. This is something he's been trying to teach Chase to see if it can be done. Chase on the ot

    What a unique approach to vampires, quite different from anything I have read or seen to date. Tracy has a lively writing style that is pleasant to read. Her story telling has a great faster pace to it that keeps the reader drawn to the book.

    Kate is an interesting character. She appeared like not much at first but slowly turns into an unexpected heroine. She is actually rather likeable! Hunter, can't do anything but really like him. Even with what he has done, you can't help but really like him.

    Let me preface my review with the fact that I don't generally follow the vampire genre. I purchased this book upon the recommendations from several friends but after reading the first few pages, I was hooked! I found myself feverishly reading page after page and could not put it down! I loved the humor the author used and the engaging way the text was written. I am anxiously awaiting the sequel. Although I am an avid reader, I find very few books catch my attention longer than the first chapter. ...more

    A great debut novel. The Human Cure takes the vampire romance trope and transforms it into something unique and exciting. I can't wait for the next book!

    This book is a fast paced sit on the beach kind of read! Without giving anything away, it is not your typical vampire novel! I can't wait to see what Tracy Auerbach has in store for future novels!

    Not your normal vampire story
    *SPOILERS*

    Kate has a boring sad life until an attractive man starts hitting on her, which was definitely unusual for her. After a night of great sex, she ends up drugged and kidnapped. She eventually discovers that her kidnapper (Hunter) does not want to rape and kill her, but rather is a vampire and wants to breed with her. Hunter is not your typical vampire, as he grew up among humans and does not drink human blood. He has figured out how to live on human food and

    One of the more original vampire interpretations that I've read. And if you are like me who appreciates deadpan and monotonous humour, you'll love one of the main characters. But it was too short. I liked the length because I was able to finish it (and I'm still 4 books behind on my GR challenge) but at the same time it needed the extra length for development.

    Full review on my blog.

    Compelling and insightful story which takes the reader on a journey filled with a full range of emotions . . . those you are familiar with as well as those from a world yet to be traversed. I highly recommend The Human Cure by Tracy Auerbach as a book which will lead you to explore possibilities and what-ifs.

    Weird

    I'm completely confused and still trying to figure out what I just read. It started off okay but got strange. Never read about vamps feeding like this. It was captivating to the point that I read it in a couple of hours but what did I read. I truly don't know but still liked it. Strange days...
