Full Throttle

Full ThrottleAbby stays out of the limelight of her father’s political career but she will be sucked in when men will be after her. Abby will have her secret service but it wouldn’t be enough, it will take Carlos to save her and protect her from danger.

Carlos “Steady” had loved Abby from afar and he would do anything he could to protect her. When she is taken Carlos will go on his own to bring back Abby. As he keeps close to Abby, Carlos will realize that he doesn’t want to be parted from her when she is brought back home.

Full Throttle is the seventh book to the series Black Knights Inc by Julie Ann Walker. I really liked this novel mainly because of the two characters of Abby and Carlos.

I liked the character of Abby. She was someone who went about and did her job but mainly kept to herself. She wasn’t really able to live her life since she was the presidents daughter. The mystery of what was her fault kept me reading. Well it wasn’t that much of a mystery as I had guessed pretty early on in the book. But I thought that Walker did a good job writing Abby’s guilt that ate away for the last eight years. So Carlos was a favorite of mine. He was very charming, thoughtful, and of course lethal in a fight. He was someone who would do anything to protect those he loved. My heart broke for Carlos when tragedy had struck him but that was what made him into the soldier he had become.

The threat is obviously the men who are after Abby and they are determined. I thought there was a good amount of action and danger which kept me entertained throughout the book.

Well there is one more book to the series which is out right now, though I am going to take a break from Walker and move on yet again.

The First Daughter and A Vampire

Love at Stake is a series that keeps going and I love it. Kerrelyn Sparks keeps this series going with new characters and old ones still very present. The eleventh book to the series is Sexiest Vampire Alive.

Gregori Holstein is a relatively young vampire and completely bottle fed which amuses most of his fellow vampires. Of course now that habit is what will help the vampires create an alliance with the President of the United States, there is just one catch. Gregori will have to play babysitter to the eldest daughter as they go on a dangerous mission. Gregori is willing to help as it will help their cause but feelings of desire make it difficult to stay on task.

Abigail Tucker or known as Abby is the eldest daughter of the President. She stayed out of the limelight by choice as she did not like the attention but then there was her mother. Her mother became too sick and Abby knew it was in her power to find a cure. Abby’s life is dedicated to help her mother and now with the help of a vampire she will be that much closer. The only thing Abby didn’t think would happen is the desire she feels as Gregori gazes upon her.

As I had started the series Gregori was just a funny young vampire who was amusing to read about. As the series progressed you started to like him more and more. Soon I had hoped he would have his own book and now Sparks delivers.

The character of Gregori was perfect. There was enough humor to love him and even though he had done something unethical to Abby you still wanted to love him. Abby’s character was a spitfire once she was able to let go. I loved how Sparks gave her to be the level headed one. It made the book amusing to read as she let her guard down and got caught up in the vampire life.

Now Sexiest Vampire Alive is not filled with only an amusing plot or characters, no, Sparks gives betrayal and heartache within the pages. Gregori betrays Abby in order to help the vampires that will have you screaming no! don’t do it! You knew that there would be trouble once he had done it, and of course it comes at the right moment at the end, but Sparks will not end it with tragedy. There will be a happy ending as with all of her stories.

Love at Stake series is a quirky, fun take on vampires living in the modern world and trying to get by. The next book will be all about the Dr. Phang and for those who have read the series you know what I mean. For those who haven’t it is another very new vampire who is part of Roman’s team.
