My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!
***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book! I will be buying this, but I’m waiting to get the whole serial together!

The cover is steamy!

This is the first part in a new serial series! This is my first time reading Violet’s work though I’m not sure why because I them! This is for adults only due to the steamy and adult conten

I think I'm going to be loving this serial as much as I hate them LoL Have you ever wondered what the recipient of someone else's heart by means of a transplant feels? Does the person feel what was in the others heart, that's a big mystery no, it makes you wonder if the recipient would actually let someone know?

Margaret was a sickly child, had a bad heart, but she was lucky enough to receive the much need heart transplant. What she never expected was to be thrown into a world of unknowns, but he

This book was okay but I wasn’t aware of how short it was. Then I was going to continue but thought that the next book for 75 pages was too expensive. Otherwise I loved the thoughts and writing style.

Called by the Vampire Part 1
By: V. Vaughn

I was drawn into this story after reading the unique storyline synopsis about Maggie Evans and two brothers, Sebastian and Alexander Hart. As I started reading the story I was pulled in from the very first page until the last word in chapter ten.

Maggie had been restricted to the hospital her whole life with a heart condition. Now, after having a heart transplant, she is ready to live life to the fullest. When she arrives in Maine to start her new job. Sh

V. Vaughn's new series is thrilling and lures you into the lives of Maggie, Sebastian, and Alexander; a true page-turner as it holds your attention until the last word.

I thoroughly enjoyed this series starter which surprises me as I usually avoid them until I have the whole set. :)
I liked Maggie and her determined attitude to life given the hardships she has to overcome with her health. I loved her unusual connection to her heart and that connection to the brothers as she spent more time with them.
I liked Alexander's easy going playful side to Sebastian's more serious, though with some spark as their evening revealed. I was left wanting so much more and needin

What a brilliant start to a new series from this Author.
Right from the first page you are court up in Maggie's
Feeling 's of wanting a new life after all the sickness

After receiving a heart transplant Maggie has a second chance at living her life. Accepting a job with two very handsome brothers the detail of her job are kept a hush from her but for a very good reason. When the detail of her job are outline they come with one very big secret both brothers are vampires. Maggie is drawn to one brother while her heart beats for the other. Called by the Vampire book one is a sexy romantic suspense that will leave you begging for more. I cannot wait for book 2!

What happens when your heart and your soul want different men? When Maggie arrives at her new job, she never expects to be drawn to her boss and her boss's brother. Her heart wants her boss Sebastian, but her soul longs for his brother, Alexander. What will happen to the three of them and how will Maggie react to their secret?

Story gets more intense as you read it and by the end you'll be holding on for part two. This may be about vampires, but the first part is really about getting to know Maggie and how she interacts with the two handsome brothers. One pulls at her heart and the other pulls at her soul. Can't wait for book two.

I found the premise interesting. I love the whole weird job in a creepy mansion by the sea scenario, and then throw in vampires and BOOM!, you've pulled me in! Now, this story comes in parts, which I don't love, but I knew that going into reading this, so I didn't have a problem with it, but just wanted to make sure readers knew that, so they'd be aware that they are getting a portion of a story. This book is quite short, but did a good job of setting the story up, and I really enjoyed the autho

Excellent! Loved everything about it however a BIG downer I do have to wonder how many parts will be in this series. I'm not keen on the 70 page or so parts with cliffhangers when you pay for each part and many in past are 9 or so plus parts per series than lead off into another side series to drain readers money . This is a big negative aspect that tends to turn me away from author especially thinking at least this one was complete or at least readers were led to believe that. I hope author tak ...more

Oh boy! Called by the Vampire is a serial, so don't expect it to end with this book... or even close to an end. That being said, it starts off slow then picks up just about when it ends and left me wanting more. Part 1 is really the set up to the rest of the serial and has a lot of detail that is needed in order to understand some of what is to come. In Part 1 we meet the vampire brothers and Maggie (Margaret), a heart transplant recipient who comes to work for and live with the brothers.

So...

I genuinely liked the idea of the book.
Having Maggies job is LEGIT my dream job! Wish that was possible in real life!
Two vampire brother. One playful, one serious, both handsome.
One beautiful woman, who received a new heart, because her own was sick. The heart was just not all she received. She gets “feelings”. Feelings that she feels comes from the woman who donated her new heart.

Someone else's heart

She came looking for adventure, but found out more than she was seeking. Now that she knows who and what the heart brothers are, can she handle being split between the two? Sometimes the heart wants what it wants, but your body has other plans. The story was too short. It was just getting good and it was over.

Good story

A really quick read. And while the first book is free I might would buy the rest of the series if the books were longer than 70 something pages long and costing $2.99 a piece. They need to be bundled. The story is an original idea which is a lot of the appeal. But I'm not sure if I will move on to the other 8 books in this series.

Short...too short!

I really liked the summary and found it odd, but interesting. I always check to see how many pages and I did not do that with this one. I should have realized something was up for .99 cents. Right? Well, I just wanted it to be longer. What is up with the housekeeper??? Is she weird or what? Lol
