Blood Type (Blood Type #1) by K.A. Linde Review

Blood Type (Blood Type #1)


A startling new vision of paranormal romance: When a human ventures into the world of vampires—a decadent milieu of blood-bonds and betrayal—she discovers that not all is what it seems.

For Reyna Carpenter, giving up her body isn’t a choice. It’s survival.

In a civilization laid waste by poverty and desperation, Reyna accepts a high-paying position with the wealthy and hungry vampire elite. Her new job is as the live-in blood escort for the intimidating, demanding, and devilishly handsome Beckham Anderson. He’s everything she expected from a vampire, except for one thing—he won’t feed off her.

Reyna soon discovers that behind Beckham’s brooding, wicked façade lies a unique and complex man. And that, in a dark and divided world, she is more valuable than she ever would have believed.

For with each passing night, Reyna can’t shake the sensation that it’s Beckham who’s afraid of her.

Note: Reyna and Beckham’s story continues in Blood Match.

This ebook includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

Oh wow…. where do I start. I really enjoyed this book. It was different. I don’t often read paranormal. It’s just not my thing but I wanted to step out of my box a little. I had been hearing about this book and decided to give it a try. Right from the beginning this book sucked me in!

I liked how this book played out. How being a vampire was out in the open. How the world had changed. How humans became food for the vampires. Just the politics of a human/vampire coexistence. The whole dynamic of the whole new world. Where there was a definite upper and lower class.

Reyna fell in the dirt poor class. She became a blood escort for Visage.. This vampire company the was becoming the company that was ruling the world. It paid their blood escorts well. And being in the position Reyna was in. And seeing her brothers struggle. Reyna wanted to help her brothers out. They were taking extra shifts to get a little extra money to help put food on the table and put a roof over their heads. But it always never enough.
She wanted to make life easier for her brothers. So she went behind their backs and got a job as an blood escort.

She was paired with Beckham a high raking official within the company that hired her. He was totally disinterested in her. He was super mean.
This is where I started to struggle with their dynamic/relationship. Beckham and Reyna were so up and down. Mostly because of Beckham. It was hard to read for me. For a good chunk of the book Beckham strings Reyna along. He gave her just a little and pulled away. And Reyna kept letting things go. And we never got anything back from Reyna arguing with Beckham. It always felt like more should’ve been said. But I hated how everything just dropped and moved on.

When Penelope was introduced in the book. I was pretty shocked. It kinda explained a lot. But I was so upset for Reyna. Because Beckham was a jerk when Penelope was around and definitely gave Reyna mixed signals.
The part that had me so upset in this book was the Vault scene. What Beckham did with Penelope in front of Reyna was so wrong.
But as you read on you finally get some answer. I think we should’ve gotten some answers earlier in the book. Because once we get them. The book ends in a cliffhanger.

Another thing that got to me was Reyna. Everything that could’ve happened to her did happened to her once she walked out and went somewhere. She never made the right decision in the heat of the moment. But at the same time I loved when she stood up for what she thought was right. And when she was confronting Beckham with his attitude. It was just seeing the conversation through that got to me with her.

Overall this was a good read and I can’t wait to see how Book 2 plays out! The way this book left off has me on pins and needles! I’m all in!
