This book is a hidden gem.

When I started reading this, I was surprised at how clean and well the writing flowed. There were barley any grammatical mistakes, which is rare in e-books. I didn’t expect much from the novel since the past couple of e-books I’ve been reading have been in the 2-3 star range, but this definitely exceeded my expectations.

I requested this as soon as I read the premise of the novel on LibraryThing. It was much shorter than the Goodreads synopsis, but it captured my attent

*First time reading author

OMG, I LOVE THIS STORY! The Cardinalis Code is unlike anything I have read in a LONG time. I am a huge fan of the paranormal and vampire stories, but Avery takes this story to a human level. Avery brings the vampires to life in almost a very likable way. I could not put this story down.

Preslie and Michael are the perfect match. Preslie has no idea that vampires exist. When Michael finds himself paying more attention to Preslie she ends up in a lot of danger. So when Pre

“I’ve literally just finished this book and im so out of words! I’m so happy I got to read this book! I absolutely adored it. I barely slept once I started reading. At first things started so peaceful but then all when out of control the moment Michael Chamberlain and Paislee Sullivan met.

The Cardinalis Code was intense, captivating, breathtaking and so hot and twisted but also funny. The moment Avery was learning the truth about Michael she was supposedly the one freaking out but instead it was

Preslie and Michael

Preslie needed a job to make her college payment. Little did she know that the job would change her life in unimaginable ways. Vampires are real. They aren't vampires by name. They aren't what we read about in books and see in movies. And they are....better read to find out what Preslie learns.

Michael has come back to the states at his parent's request. He's been put in charge of the club that his brother thought he would manage. Their sibling rivalry reaches a whole new high.

Paislee Sullivan’s life was changed the moment she got into an accident after catching her ex-boyfriend cheating on her. Now she views life a little differently and she is ready to complete her schooling for Web Design while she waitresses at the club Allure.
Michael Chamberlin has come home so that his dad can “die” and pass his businesses onto him. Michael hasn’t been home in 4 years and didn’t really want to come home and now must find himself a donateur as he is a vampire but not the kind you
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book.

So, there I was, merrily reading away. Enjoying this book, not a 5 star read, but a very good solid four star. Some minor typos, but they might be cos of the changing file thing. A good solid 4 star read, that piqued my interest enough to keep going.

And then, in the VERY last chapter, followed by the EPILOGUE, it all changed!

I mean, it made the whole bloody book flip on it's head! And it's gonna be really REALLY hard n

This was a good book and I am looking forward to more as it both finishes yet at the same time it does leave you with a little bit of a cliff-hanger so I’m not sure what the other has planned.

I really liked Paislee and I felt horrible for what she went through at the beginning of the book. Paislee knew that she didn’t want to settle for less than what she deserved and held onto those morals to get her through. I thought it was funny with everything that happened between the first kiss between Pa

This is Avery Sterling’s debut book. This book was an interesting read. Paislee is getting ready to attend college. She has a job and a place to stay. Everything changes for her when she starts her new job. She works at a night club as a waitress. This guy gives her the creeps so she goes up to her boss, Michael and kisses him. He plays along. Too bad she had no idea how this would completely change her life. Her boss is a vampire and he needs a new donateur to feed from. Too bad he and his brot ...more

Paislee Sullivan moves to the Hamptons to attend college. Paislee gets a job at a local nightclub to help make ends meet. On her first night on the job she has a run in with a couple of vampires one she instantly likes and one she has a problem with.

One of the vampires hits on Paislee but for some reason she doesn’t want anything to do with him. Maybe it is because he came on to strong or maybe it is his attitude or maybe it was his context or maybe she just felt a bad vibe coming from this guy

This is a new author to me and I love PNR so I decided to give this book a try. I was pleasantly surprised by the writing style and the author kept me engaged throughout. Paislee is a college student just trying to fund her education. Michael is the club owner and in need of a new contract donor. Will they come to some sort of agreement? When feelings get involved well they both make it out of unscathed?

I actually didn't expect this one, the story grab from the beginning and after that I couldn't put the book down, love how the author developed, and brought us deep into this one, can't wait for the next book, also to now how my couple is going to react with the turns, and twist that the author is going to give you, as this one had plenty and kept me in my toes wondering , go grab a copy you won't be dissatisfied. ...more

Avery feels strongly that every romantic journey she creates should have elements of adventure, sweet banter, danger, tension, gripping content —and of course, all that steamy roma
