Review Copy Source: NetGalley
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.
DON'T BLACKMAIL THE VAMPIRE is the second book in the Sons of Kane series. I don't think its necessary to read book one DON'T BITE THE BRIDESMAID but characters do carry over so it would be fun to.
Rachel's sister is engaged to a class A: asshole. She will do anything to show her sister what she and everyone else sees. When she meets and finds out a secret about Charles she blackmails him in to helping her achieve her goal. As they put their plans into motion she realizes there is a lot more to Charles than she thought and falls for him pretty quickly. However she is scared of relationships and she pushes him away as much as she pulls him close. Charles is on this little ski trip undercover trying to find out if Brent is the one blackmailing his brothers wife. When he is caught feeding from a human by Rachel, he agrees to help her with her goals of breaking up the not as happy as they seem couple. He is not one for relationships but quickly realizes that what he feels for Rachel is more than anything he has felt before.
I enjoyed Rachel and Charles banter together and I also really liked that they didn't jump right into bed. It was interesting to see how much Rachel wanted to hold herself back yet had feelings hurt when Charles was playing his part in their charades. The author did a really good job of blending in the romance and investigating, scheming aspects of the book. I was really happy with how the situation with Kristen and Brent played out when all was said and done. If you read book 1 you know why.
DON'T BLACKMAIL THE VAMPIRE was a pretty light and fast read. Plenty of up and down feelings, a bit of mystery, and lots of scheming going on. The paranormal aspects are pretty light so I think that this series will attract more than just paranormal fans although we ARE the best fans out there. ;) I am not sure how many books are planned for this series but I am interested in seeing how book 3 will connect to the first 2.
I gave it 4/5 stars
