Review: Love Bites by Scarlet Blackwell

Love Bites by Scarlet Blackwell

Publisher: Evernight Publishing
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Heat Rating: 2



Sebastien, a French vampire, has lived with the murder of his true love for three hundred years. Now there’s someone new on the scene, someone who looks very much like his dead love. Did she somehow survive? Has she been reincarnated? He won’t stop until he finds out exactly who she is.

Alex, a blonde and beautiful woman who isn’t afraid to speak her mind, is followed one night by a mysterious man. Their chemistry is undeniable, and despite the realization he wants her because she looks like someone from his past, she finds herself naked and beneath him.

Soon, Alex is visited by a member of the mysterious Council, one who threatens to end her life. Can Sebastien save her, or will she meet the same fate Eloise did three hundred years ago?

Rachel's Review

Blackwell’s fast moving short story is riddled with many sexual rendezvous’ but the pacing was rather rushed. Even the uber sexy scenes cried out for the pen to slow down. The characters were strong and I would have loved to explore more of her story, but it was too brief to get a good feel for the plot.

Basically, a vampire has a case of missing identity and falls for a woman he believes is his long dead love. She’s quick to accept his randy, misguided attention and learns to love him really quick. This would have been a 5 + story if Blackwell hadn’t been so adventurous with her plot and stuck with the hero and heroines story. Overall a good read.
