Book Review: Vampires Like It Hot

New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands brings the heat in this new Argeneau novel, as one woman is rescued by an irresistible immortal …


When Raffaele Notte pulls a barely dressed, disoriented woman from the ocean, the last thing he expects is for her to utter that word. The immortal has come to the island resort to help his cousin, but now, it seems, there are rogue vampires dining on unsuspecting tourists. And he soon realizes that not only is Jess a target, she’s also the life mate he’s been waiting for…

Vampires are real. Jess would’ve never believed it until she saw them with her own eyes. She knows she has to get off the island, and her gallant rescuer has offered to help. There’s something about Raffaele that’s unlike any man she has ever met, and his touch sends pleasure through her that is beyond all imagining. But when Jess discovers who he really is, will she risk life as she knows it for a chance of forever by his side?

My Review

“Vampires Like It Hot” came at a perfect time for me, since I was missing a vampire book. Even if this was not quite what I had in mind, I still enjoyed my time with it. This is #28 in the series, but it an be read as a stand alone. From what I gathered in the first pages, a bigger story happened in the previous books. I am sorry I could not get to those before reading this one. I feel I would have enjoyed them even more.

But back to the book at hand. It has a lot of humor, it has great characters, but it also lacked credibility in one or two scenes. our female main character is being “invited” on a trip to feed the sharks. Little did Jess know that she was supposed to be the food and the sharks are closer to humans than animals. She manages to escape, but sadly after becoming the center of attention for our “shark leader” and after seeing too much of what happened really on this trip. Saved by our brave Raffaele, he realizes she is his mate – the woman he is destined to spend eternity with. But he has to win her trust, he has to show her the good sides of being what he is, this after witnessing the bad ones.

Vampires with honor, hysterical ladies and a female character who believes she can escape the powers of a vampire. While I liked the story and I liked the funny moments, I would have wanted so much more. there are scenes that contradict the powers of vampires and there are scenes in which Jess is completely out of this world. Her mind has nothing to do with reality. I mean, I would be completely freaked out if I saw a vampire and I didn’t feel her scared. I liked the mating part. I liked how Raffaele was trying to be close to Jess and try to win her confidence and her heart.

All in all, this was definitely not a bad book. I know there are characters in the series that have a much more interesting story and probably the most interesting is still to come (one of the cousins in this one, maybe???). I liked it, it was almost close to my expectations and I had fun reading it.I think that’s the most important part.

Let me know in the comments below if you have read any other books from this series and which one do you think is the best. Happy reading!
