Take It Like A Vamp by Candace Havens

Blurb from Entangled Publishing: 

Vampire Nick Christos might have been born in the Middle Ages, but those days seem tame compared to the last eight years spent ruling the Supernatural Council. The only respite in his long days of governing is with his sweet neighbor Casey Meyers. Sure, he’s forced to take a cold shower after every encounter, but no way will he risk anything more with a human. Not with his blood thirsty ex on the prowl and out to ruin Nick’s life.

But when said crazy ex shows up at the ball and flies her freak flag high, Nick has more to worry about than keeping his hands off his neighbor. He’ll have to stay closer than ever if he hopes to keep her alive, but will she want to leave him forever when she learns the truth?

Well, I can’t really say too much about this book for fear of spoiling it for you… but I had an idea before I started writing this review!  So we’re going to try a little something new for random, so just hang with me here folks…

First off, here are my GR Updates while reading this book – they are pretty amusing, in my opinion ;)

Please excuse the typo in the quote!  After finishing the book that quote is still one of my favorite quotes… here is it again in its entirety b/c I love it so much!

Now… what do I think Nick and Casey look like?  Well… here you go =)


Remove the cowboy hat and this is Nick! 
{ maybe, I kind of like the hat, but Candace has no mention of a hat LOL } 

Oh & in case you are not sure who this really is, I'll tell you, because he's hot and he can sing!
This is Dustin Lynch - he sings Cowboys & Angels - the video is showing below

So here is what I think Casey looks like in my head... maybe a little fuller, but this is what I see - girl next door pretty - gorgeous by all accounts except her own!

  Oh shit - I forgot to tell you who this is... sorry!!  This lovely women shown above as my Casey is actually Sara Paxton!

A little something new... This book has a song & I had to post it here for you... 

My choice of song for this book is Wanted by Hunter Hayes {the video is showing below}

Now... I don't usually voice my own opinions ... {calm down, I know I do, but I have something specific in mind here - zip it and sit down} ...  I don't usually voice my opinions on music for books, but this book I think has a song that fits so well!  This is the exact song I thought of when I read Nick's thoughts and feelings of Casey - sigh - 
Here's the video of this song, I found the video at

so like I said earlier... I can't (not that I don't) say much about this book - I don't want to spill my brains and spoil it for you!  But I have a little about the awesome author of this book - so check this out!  Follow her around cyber space | you know I already am ;) join me |
