Review - Don't Blackmail the Vampire (Sons of Kane, #2) by Tiffany Allee


Rachel Davis will do anything to get her sister out of a bad relationship with her fiancé. Even if it involves a few fibs, a little breaking-and-entering, and blackmailing the fiancé's potential boss, Charles, for his help. So what if the handsome Charles happens to be a vampire?

Charles Wright has found the perfect way to trap the man threatening his brother's wife: cozy up to him, get invited along on the skiing trip, and then search for incriminating evidence. How much better that audacious but gorgeous Rachel is just as eager to nail the bastard. As far as he's concerned, there's nothing wrong with a little blackmail between two consenting adults. Especially when it's time for Rachel to pay up.

My Review: 4 Stars

If there is one thing I love, it’s a book with lots of snarky dialogue – and this book certainly had lots of it! From the first chapter right until the end of the book, I found myself chuckling out loud, never knowing what was going to come out of either Charles or Rachel’s mouth.
“Did you just call me…pretty?”“You’re a male version of Helen of Troy. Now run along. Find another something pretty that appeals to you.”
Underneath all that snarky banter though, was a love story that had me rooting for Charles and Rachel to find their happily ever after.

I just loved watching Charles and Rachel fight their feelings for one another. Charles is trying to prove to his brothers that he can be trusted, and Rachel trying to get her sister to see that her fiancé is not the wonderful man she thinks she is, and when they decide to work together – well, when Rachel blackmails the vampire into helping – things get hot between the two. And when they decide to “pretend” to be in a relationship as part of their scheme to break up Rachel’s sister and her fiancé, you just knew that sparks were going to fly. Through it all, Rachel and Charles must both come to terms with issues from their past so they can move forward and learn to trust in love and in one another.
“Sometimes the things we need most – they aren't what we’re looking for. They’re the things we happen to run into.”

This was a fun read and I like the twist on vampire lore that was in the book – I don’t think I've ever read a book with a skiing vampire before! I have not read the first book in this series but was able to jump right into this one without a problem since the back story was explained enough to catch me up. This is my second book by this author and I’ll definitely be looking to read more from her!

I received a copy of the book from the publisher for an honest review.
