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.

3.5 angsty Stars!
I’m honestly not sure how I feel about this book. It drew me in from the start and kept me there, but I honestly almost put it down quite a few times, because Beckham drove me a bit insane. He was sexy and alpha, but he was a very indecisive hero. While by the end of the story I understood why, I had already made my mind up. I ADORED Reyna. While she’s sweet, she’s feisty and stands up for what she believes in. Even if it made waves, she wasn’t going to bite her tongue.
The story itself was great. Like I said, it drew me in from the beginning and had me wondering what would happen next. This is definitely a good read, and I would recommend it. Just be prepared for wanting to throat punch the hero a bit.... (but keep in mind, he does redeem himself)
Annoying heroine....almost did not finish!
I borrowed this book from the library.....glad I didn't pay for it! The concept was interesting but the characters were really lacking. Beckham was definitely the strong and silent type but he took it to another level. It was hard to connect with him because he was just "there". And the heroine, Reyna was just annoying and very immature. Her character was so whiny and indecisive that I stopped reading in the middle for 2 weeks. Due to financial circumstances, she becomes a permanent "blood donor/slave" to a mysterious and powerful vampire. But for someone who needs the job, she constantly acts out and back talks her employer......which is odd and annoying! Then she goes back and forth in her feeelings for Beckham......side note: I did not like her nickname "Becks" for him...it did not fit his character or their relationship. But the most annoying part was when she kept putting herself in dangerous situations, even when she was warned. Why would she go off on her own to have a cry when she is in the most dangerous place of all (Vault). The injury that happens at the end is her fault because Beckham's focus was split. I really did not like her at all. Unfortunately because of this, I will not be continuing this series.
This book is like no other vampire book you’ve read. You may think, Oh how different can it be? Well read it because it’s simply amazing. It gets to a point that it’s predictable, and i figured out the twist a little more than halfway, but not the usual vamp falls for human mate. No. Not at all. It’s so completely different and a refreshing take on the vampire genre. I cannot wait to read the next book!
