My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Enjoyed this book it was cute and funny found that I was laughing on and off from the beginning to the end. Not your typical vampire book.A retired con artist joining up with a group of dj vampires who would have thought. But, a good kind is what they need to save there failing radio station. Loved the character they all had such different personalities and like the fact that one of there ideas was to come out of the closet and tell everyone who they became vampires as part of there campaign to save the radio station.Fist book by this author for me and had reservation that I was going to enjoy it from the beginning but it was something totally different from the normal vampire story I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Against the Wind by Kat Martin






My Thoughts...............
This   book was and enjoyable read but lacking in the romance department for   me. I enjoyed the characters the scenery and even the plot. I have   looking forward to this series for some time as I love Kat Martin.Sarah   Allen-Hollister returns home after many years of being gone. She rents a   cottage from and old acquaintance from school Jackson Raines. But   Jackson is not wanting her to stay as the have a past of sorts but   agrees to let her stay on and see how things work out. Strange happening   are going on as Sarah and her daughter Holly settle in. Her place is   ransacked and trashed to no avail. Sarah confides in Jackson that her   husband has died recently and left her in dire financial straits she   sold everything she had to pay the debts and it still was not enough.   She wants a new life for her daughter and herself as her relationship   with her husband was not a happy one he was a very abusive controlling   man.She tries to put the past behind her but, someone is not letting   her. Her husbands enemies are trying to kill and threaten her with   bodily harm. She confides in Jackson that these bad people are wanting   some sort of list her husband has names on which he seems to have been   blackmailing some really not so nice people. Jackson enlists his   brothers help to look into these matters and with the leads they find   Jackson and Sarah venture back to her hold stomping ground to try and   find this list and solve the matter before she or daughter or her   friends end up dead. Sarah and Jackson seem to have feelings for one   another but the both are Leary as Jackson knows that Sarah is coming out   of and abusive relationship and he doesn't want to push but he is   having a hard time resisting her. Jackson's been in love with her since   high school and wants something he once lost and is also feeling   protective of Sarah so he will do what ever he has to to close this   matter as soon as possible but its no so easy. A detective is pointing   the finger as Sarah for murdering her husband so they have that to   contend with too. Sarah's very afraid off whats going to happen next.She   is hiding things from Jackson , very important things but she must   never tell her secrets so she decides to move into town away form   Jackson and put space and try and figure out her next move to solve her   own problems. Jackson not giving up as the danger is even worse then   before. He will win her heart and make her is wife and nothing or know   one with get in his way.Lots of twists and turns along the way just to   see what happens next , your in for a ride....My only problem with this   story was that I would have loved a deeper romance with this couple.  For  someone like Jackson who's had these feeling's locked up in his  heart  since high school I thought we would have seen a more passionate  romance  between these two between these pages. Looking forward to the  next in  the series of one of his brothers....
