Jun 21, 2016 rated it it was amazing
I love nothing better than a hot, brooding and cocky alpha male. Rocked by a Vampire definitely has one that gets my pulse racing, Lane DeMarco. He has many debilitating memories from his past that have come back to haunt him since Vanessa, the best friend of his brother's woman, walked into his world. To make things worse, she's a witch. As much as he tries to deny his attraction to her, he just can't get her out of his mind. This makes for some steamy sexual tension and a cranky vampire.

I started reading this third volume of the Immortal heart of San Francisco series and found I just could not put it down and kept reading until the early hours of the morning when I just had to go to sleep but picked it up again as quickly as i could the next day.
What can I say other than it was a Fantastic read. Definitely not a book to be put down and picked up here and there.
Lane is a sexy, very attractive twin vampire to Cian who has already found his lifetime love. Lane feels that this will

Reviewed on behalf of "2 Girls Who Love Books Blog." Rocked by a Vampire is Book 3 of the Immortal Hearts of San Francisco Series. I had not previously read Books 1 and 2, Tempted by a Vampire and Captivated by a Vampire, before reading this book. I normally don’t do this but it was necessary in this case. The author did an amazing job of filling in any possible holes of information that the reader may want to know from books 1 and 2 and I never felt lost from not experiencing those books first. ...more

Vanessa is a witch. Lane is a Vampire. The two mix as well as oil and vinegar. But when they finally do come together, the taste is EXPLOSIVE.

Griscom does a great job adding just the right amount of heat and anticipation to all of her characters, but I have to say, the story of Lane and Vanessa was by far the most exciting. Vanessa Creamer’s apartment is under renovation which leads her to move in with her best friend, Maggie. Only one problem, Maggie’s boyfriend’s brother lives there too. And
Vanessa and Lane have been doing the fascinated/repelled dance since they met. Lane is a vampire and Vanessa is a witch, so they have that complication also. Both have serious issues from their past that are complicating their futures. I loved seeing Lane learn to overcome his issues with the help and love from Vanessa. I loved Vanessa as the tough yet good-hearted strong female. The unexpected twist in the plot had me on the edge of my seat.

A very enjoyable book with a wonderful ending. Involv

Is Vanessa enough to cure Lane's demons?!
This book is a beautiful mix of love, heartache, and sinful sex!
This book destroyed me emotionally. I was on a roller coaster of emotions. Euphoric highs and toxic lows. Pain from the past could ruin both their lives. Will they let it? Mrs. Griscom definitely knows how to keep your pulse racing! This is one of my must reads of the year! It is a highly addictive read that was easily devoured that leaves you wanting more.

I started reading this book knowing I was going to fall for this sexy vampire rockstar, the. Minute he started talking about the witch Vanessa and all the dirty things he wanted to do with her I was hooked! While reading you could feel the sexual tension the second the two were in the same room. I really enjoyed reading how the two learned to trust each other and eventually learn to fall in love. This was the first book of this series I've read I'm going back now to read the other two and I'm ex ...more

Really enjoyed this book! I've wished for Lane and Vanessa to be a couple since Cian & Maggie's book! Lane had an awful past to contend with and Vanessa was not quite as confident as she appeared, although Lane really helped her to gain some real self-confidence when they got past the initial bickering!

Really looking forward to the next book! Not sure if it will be Gage or Elvis next as they both had potential love interests this book although Elvis's wasn't seen or named.

I really enjoyed this story. Susan did a wonderful job on this story. I liked the witches and vampire touch. The characters if you read the first two books you would know who some were but even if you didn't you read them its ok cause the way Susan wrote the book you got to meet the characters and it would leave you for wanting to go back and read book 1 and 2. ...more

Vamps and witches.

Lane DeMarco is a 220yr old vampire. Along with his twin brother, Cian. Gage and Elvis, (also vamps), make up the band The Lost Boys.
Vanessa Creamer is a witch and bf's with Cian's mate Magdalena. Being close they spend a lot of time together which leads to Lane seeing her often. He's rude, opinionated and quite frankly obnoxious towards her, but inside he yearns for her. The attraction is mutual.
You come to learn that they both have damaged pasts, and a troubled present, so th

This is so good, that I didn't want it to ever end. The chemistry, whether good or bad, between Lane and Vanessa is magnetic and explosive. Very well written paranormal, author blends the seemingly unmixable. Plot is intense, immersing and swift paced with never a dull moment. They engage feeling of happiness and anxiety, I love that with time, they are steadfast and willing to communicate, trust, release all their pent-up emotions and open their hearts to love. Absolutely love this!!!! I receiv ...more

Trigger warning: (view spoiler)
I'm glad I continued with this series. There's something special about this group of vampires. Griscom's writing has also improved throughout the series. Now, the triggers in this story were not my favorite. But I enjoyed how Lane and Vanessa were able to help each other conquer their fears and past. I especially liked the music aspect of this story.

Vanessa and Lane seemed to let their damaged past ruin their present lives. In the prior books in the series Vanessa was a good strong friend but by the time we got to this book her insecurity’s and neediness got on my nerves. Lane was wrong for what he did to Shell in the last book so why was he not effected until this tale. They really did have bad stuff happen but it was the end that made the book ok.

The push and pull of lane and Vanessa had me sitting on the edge of seat. I could not put the book down. I was so glad when lane and Vanessa finally opened up to each other, and lane finally had sex with her! Damn it was hot staying on the edge waiting for them to finally rip there clothes off lol. Such an awesome book.

This was a sweet, gripping, and at times, very frustrating romance. Vanessa (witch), and Lane (vampire) are constantly snipping at each other even though they feel drawn to each other. The frustrating part was only because of Lane's getting close then pushing her away. I wanted them to get together and work together on their issues. The writing was excellent and the plot was riveting. I loved the characters, and Vanessa was bad ass. Both Lane and Vanessa have terribly hurtful pasts that they hav ...more

This story Rocked my mind...

This author has a knack for bringing the best out of her characters....Lane is the classic rock star without all the fame...his group, brothers all even not all by blood are great together...his real brother also his twin has found his soul mate which Lane couldn't understand. That's until he meets that soul mates best friend...a witch! Witches and Vampires are not supposed to get along ...right? Well Vanessa , V as she's known to her friends will show him if it's rig

Lane DeMarco is my least favorite Lost Boy (he's a jerk, but he does have a pet, fish albeit!). It's little wonder a witch cast a nasty spell on him (remember the fiasco with Chelle?!). Vanessa Creamer is said witch and best friend to Magdalena, Cian's mate. As the saying goes, opposites attract hence Lane and Vanessa are hiding their attraction and masking it with snarky comments--juvenile behavior. At the same time, no one seems to be the wiser of their growing attraction.

Rocked my soul! A rockin’ test of wills! This is Lane’s and Vanessa’s story...and what a story it is. Both of them are incredibly hard headed and always at each other’s throats. Although, they secretly like each other. *wags eyebrows* They both think the other doesn’t like them because of being a vampire or a witch but they share a connection that they cannot deny. This is an absolute test of wills between the two and the rollercoaster of emotion that follows is intense to say the least. Both st ...more

So this is the third book in this series, but the second book I've read by this author. I read it out of order, but didn't feel as if I was missing anything. I have to say that I found I enjoyed this book more than the first. In the first book, I felt as if the dialogue was kind of strange, and not really how we would actually converse. In this one, I feel like the author did a better job in that aspect and the story flowed much better and I didn't want to put it down.

Now is Lane DeMarco and Vanessa Creamer's turned to share their story. A story that nor only deals with horrific things this two faced when they were young, but still face those dark demons following them around.

Lane is a vulnerable Vampire, his broken immortal soul fights daily with his dark demons, yet he wishes he can let go and find himself in the arms of a certain witch that has captivate his immortal heart. Vanessa has found herself fighting the urges to be with La
