4 “Blue balls make anyone cranky” Stars

Ooooweeee! was this one hot. Sex and the Single Vamp turned out totally different from what I was expecting and I loved it.

Cici’s business is finding forever love for her clients and the fact that she matches supernatural beings with humans is not an issue for her. In her eyes love is love no matter the species. Unfortunately for her, someone out there is not so happy with her open-mindedness or that of her clients. A series of murders that point to her have her seeking the help of the one man she can’t stand.

Deacon is the quintessential vampire. Tough, strong, and alpha-bossy: a real warrior. He’s also a complete a-hole to Cici. Although she can actually pay him for his help he asks for sex in exchange.

As their chemistry jumps right at you from the pages this is not as unbelievable of a request as it sounds. Centuries of resisting their attraction and covering it up with snark and banter lead to explosively hot bedroom shenanigans.

“Meaning we’ve danced around the issue of “us” for about two hundred years too long. While we work together, I want us to explore each other. Up close and personal. In bed. That would be more than adequate payment.”

“And if I don’t agree?”

“I’ll help you. Free of charge. But I’ll probably be an asshole.” He shrugged. “Blue balls make me cranky.”

I can’t lie, this quote totally sold me on the book. And everything that follows was just as good.

Cici and Deacon’s historical feud comes from a miscommunication issue when she was still human. As they spend time and work together, their past differences begin to unravel and soon they are realizing things were not as they thought they were.

I loved that Cici had a backbone and kept Deacon on his toes. She was loyal, caring and truly believed in what she preached. Deacon was just dreamy: he was kind of a jerk in the beginning but when we learn why he acts that way it was all forgiven. I actually loved the two of them together.

The suspense and mystery were very well done and their sexy times were incredibly hot. There’s action, humor and the love-hate-banter that was so good it had me snorting. I really enjoyed reading Sex and the Single Vamp and I hope there’ll be more of it as I loved some of the side characters and I desperately want them to get their own HEA.
