Review - Sexiest Vampire Alive by Kerrelyn Sparks

Book Description: Contemporary, Vampire Romance

The secret is out . . . Vampires do exist!

When a video reveals to the world that vampires live among us, it’s up to “young” vamp Gregori Holstein, VP of Marketing, to persuade the U.S. government to declare the video a hoax. But first the president wants a favor, one that requires Gregori to spend forty-eight hours in very close contact with the First Daughter.

Abby Tucker would rather spend her nights in a lab than attend her father’s state dinners. She’s dedicated her life to finding a cure that will save her dying mother and needs only two more ingredients. To find them, she’ll have to venture into the most dangerous region of the world—with a vampire. Her Armani-clad escort may be Undead, but he still makes her heart race. And the greatest danger won’t be the predatory hordes lying in wait for them; it will be her undying desire for the Sexiest Vampire Alive.

D's Review:
Finally, the playboy of all playboys finally gets caught, and caught BIG TIME!

Did I enjoy Sexiest Vampire Alive???  Well here is my facebook status from this morning:  So around 8:00 pm last night I made a pot of coffee and proceeded to drink the whole pot because I wanted to finish reading Sexiest Vampire Alive...I finished it around 3:30 am and loved it!!! But this morning, I'm still jittery as hell ;-)

The Love at Stake series is one of my all time favorites!  I've been in LOVE with Gregori since the beginning. Through the years we have seen Gregori as the pretty, young, flirtatious, charming vampire who oozes sex appeal.  In Sexiest Vampire Alive we find out there is much more to Gregori than a pretty face.  Abigail, she is the oldest daughter of the President of the US, the unknown daughter. Abby's content to stay out of the limelight and in her research lab.  She hasn't been lucky in the love department and can't fathom why someone as sexy as Gregori would be interested in her.  There is an instant attraction the first time Abby and Gregori see each other. There's just one little problem, Abby is mortal and Gregori is un-dead...which is a bit of an ick factor for Abby.

Abby and Gregori are thrown together in an adventure, during this time she tries to fight the attraction and he persists in seducing her.  Gregori has some major mojo and Abby just can't fight it!  Along their journey we get to see the WILD Dr. Phang and all his silliness. The whole scene where Gregori, Abby, Dr. Phang and Madison (Abby's younger sister) visit a vampire nightclub and the Vampire network had me laughing until I cried.

SVA is a fun read, with steamy smexin', cameos by many of the characters we love, several new vamps and shifters, action and all the HUMOR that Kerrelyn Sparks is so great at!  There are a few interesting side stories in SVA that I am anxious to see where they lead in future books.

If you are a fan of the series you should enjoy SVA.  If you have never read anything by Kerrelyn Sparks, you could pick up SVA and read it without being lost, HOWEVER, I STRONGLY recommend reading the whole series.  All the characters are lovable and sexy!

OH and did you see the cover and inside cover?  I LOVE it, the Love At Stake series happens to be one of the few I buy in e-book and paperback format, for two reasons, ONE I started out in paperback and have the first 9 books in pb, TWO the covers are so freaking awesome!!!

D' gives Sexiest Vampire Alive AND the Love at Stake Series 


****my WTF rant, I saw a couple of reviews that said they didn't feel like they got closure on some things, like will Abby want to change? What happens with Sean? I HATE WHEN REVIEWERS MAKE STUPID STATEMENTS LIKE THAT!!  All I have to say is HELLLOOO WTF are they thinking, if they've been reading the series, like they claim they have, there are occasionally one or two things that might not get resolved until later books...UMM SHANNA being one of the biggest?!?!****
