This didn’t do it for me.

The world building was good, but could have been spectacular.

But mostly, I didn’t just like how Beckham treated Reyna most of the time.

It’s been days since I’ve finished this book and I can’t stop thinking about it. Blood Type is one of those books that will consume you. It’s completely addicting, fast paced, and after finishing all I can think is I WANT MORE and I want it NOW!

Reyna Carpenter lives in a world different than ours. In her world, vampires rule and humans are living in poverty, barley making ends to meet. To survive, Reyna decides to become a blood escort. She’s in for way more than she bargained for whe

BLOOD TYPE takes place in a dystopian world of stark class divisions, where rich vampires exist at the top of society and poor people waste their lives in backbreaking jobs. Vampires used to run wild in murderous rampages, but that was before people discovered that if a vampire drinks from someone whose blood type matches theirs, they become more or less civilized. A company called Visage basically controls everything, employing these vampires somehow, and also providing the best option for empl ...more

A long, long time ago, KA Linde asked me to read Blood Type.

And I had no idea what I was in for. At that time, I wasn't a very big PNR reader, but I took a chance and fell head over heels for Becks.

It's now three <--yeah, THREE years later and she sent me the books (this time I get all three because I've threatened her life), and I'm in a PNR lovers heaven.

I started from the beginning again and was once again thrust into K.A. Linde's world of vampires, mystery, and love. My heart pounded in a

Calling all PNR lovers, holy vamps! DO I HAVE A NEW ADDICTION for you. K.A. Linde has sunk her teeth into the world of vampires with a deliciously sensual and wicked new series. The first book, Blood Type, kept me on my toes, consuming me completely. It has everything you want in a vampire romance. From sizzling chemistry, to a powerful hero, to a series of gasp worthy twists and turns, to a wicked ending which leaves you breathless, Blood Type has it all. I seriously want
Blood Type is a great PNR about vampires and humans being matched with the same blood type. Reyna is being matched with the mysterious and brooding Beckham. She feels guilty that her brothers work and she doesn’t feel that she participates in any way, so she signs up to work for Visage which is the company who oversees the donor program.
The story starts out strong and I’m immediately intrigued by Beckham. He and Reyna’s chemistry is great but the hot and cold games he plays get tiring and old f
This is a brilliant unique take on the vampire/human interaction! I used to love the paranormal romance genre, but they slowly all started to become similar themes. I then became a bit bored and moved on to other genres. I decided to give this trilogy a try once they were all published, and I’m sooo glad I did! I can reassure readers that this is a world that has not yet been done, and My hat goes off to this author for coming up with something that no one else has!

This was good! The ending is killer (hehe). Note that this is NOT a companion series - it's a continuous series so don't expect the ending to wrap up nicely (it doesn't)! There are two more books to follow! Moar Beckham and Reyna. ;)

I really had a good time with this book. It is no secret that I love a good vampire story so this book got my attention right away. I thought that this vampire world sounded just different enough to be really interesting and I knew that I would have to make reading it a priority. I was pulled into the story right away and found myself trying to read every moment that I could. I found this book to be an incredibly entertaining romance

When I realized K.A. Linde was going to write a paranormal book I was all over that. Nothing excites me more than a new paranormal book. I love serial Vampire books. Event though this is a three book series, after reading Blood Type, I can totally read tons more books. I feel like the Vampire world K.A. Linde creates is limitless.

The thing I like most about Blood Type is the type of world the characters live in. The Vampires and Human live together in an almost dystopian so

Beckham now consumes my thoughts!! GAH! I love him so much. Blood Type is thrilling, sexy, and completely addictive.

I honestly had no idea what I was getting into. I went in blind and then absolutely DEVOURED this book. I seriously couldn’t put it down. It had all the angst and drama I’ve come to expect and adore from K.A. Linde, but with a deadlier and more suspenseful twist.

I CANNOT WAIT for the next book. I’m looking forward to sinking my teeth into more Beckham!

I don’t do paranormal. The only paranormal romances I ever read were part of the Twilight series 11 years ago. I don’t do paranormal. Vampires (except Edward), shape shifters, wolves, and more aren’t my thing. I don’t do paranormal. I didn’t do paranormal until now. Until K.A. Linde’s BLOOD TYPE.

GAH! With over a decade since my last and only paranormal, I had no idea what to expect. Nothing. So I picked up Blood Type, challenging myself, stepping so far from my story comfort zone that I wondere

It’s been ages since I’ve read a true paranormal novel. I’ve been in a bit of a reading rut, so it was the perfect time to shake things up a bit. When I read the synopsis for Blood Type I knew I couldn’t pass it up. It’s a paranormal romantic suspense, and while vampire stories are nothing new, the premise behind vampires and humans co-existing is really creative.

The story is enthralling and I never stopping being intrigued by the intimidating, enigmatic, and powerful vampire, Beckham. I respect
This is some kind of paranormal dystopia, where vampires and humans live alongside each other, most of the people are poor and are basically trying to survive all the time. Our heroine can’t work – no one will have her without a university degree as she claims – while her brothers pulling double shifts to provide for her and themselves. So she goes to the only place she apparently can get work – becoming a blood escort for rich vampires.

She is fiercely afraid of needles and blood – like it can

OMG!! Now is this a paranormal romance that everyone needs to read!!

I have REALLY high standards when it comes to paranormal romances, especially when vampires are involved. I was definitely a bit leery going into this because of the standards I have. K.A. smashed those standards for me. The world she has created is so unique and unlike anything I have read before.

I just started getting into the paranormal genre again and I've been addicted to it ever since and this book was the reason why. IT WAS SO FREAKING GOOD AND I NEED MORE.

The world that Kyla was able to create with the humans and vampires was nothing short of phenomenal. I loved, loved everything about it. I absolutely adored Reyna as well and how strong and independent she was and what she stood for. I sort of had a love/hate relationship with Becks but in the end he did win me over.

Blood Type by K. A Linde is the first book in the Blood Type series. I thought it was a great start to the series and I am looking forward to delve further into the world the author created. I found the author’s perspective of the vampire world unique and addictive.

In this world vampires rule and are affluent while humans live in constant state of poverty and fighting hard to survive. Corruption was rampant among the vampire hierarchy and they rule the human population with a heavy hand.

Blood Type by K.A. Linde is book One in the Blood Type Series. This is the story of Reyna Carpenter and Beckham Anderson.
In this book the Vampires are the top of the people chain and humans are more of the poor side of town. Reyna is a human who wants to help her poor family and goes forward to become a paid blood escort. Beckham is the VP of Visage and his attraction to Reyna is quick but not all is easy with them.

WOW! Blood Type is an awesome start to the new Blood Type series by K.A. Linde. A unique take on vampires and a paranormal romance, this book sets the scene for action, mystery, excitement, romance, and steam, and I was hooked from the start!

Blood Type is set in a world where humans and vampires live among one another. In the past, vampires would feed on anyone. They were ruthless and savage and every human was in extreme danger. Then vampires learned that drinking blood
