Once Bitten...

Hello out there, I've just spent the last few hours working, but now that I have a break in my schedule, I thought that I'd add a review.

I only came across Jennifer Rardin's book 'Once Bitten, Twice Shy' last night while I was late night shopping at the local shopping centre. It looked like my kind of book. Well I don't know how much of my favourable impression was due to sleep deprivation - or the Tim Tam induced coma - but I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

from Little Brown Book Group...

"Vayl is the CIA's top assassin. A master of black ops, he has never failed. He's also a 291-year-old vampire. Assigned to protect Vayl, if such a formidable creature can be said to require protection, is Jasmine Parks - 'Jaz' to her friends.
But Jaz has got problems - and not just the run-of-the-mill ones you'd expect from someone whose job consists of putting her life on the line for an undead assassin. She hasn’t had sex in god knows how long, so Vayl's almost overpowering vampire charisma is making it increasingly difficult for her to keep their relationship . . . professional. Her personal life is a long line of missed birthdays and Christmases, and lies and excuses to her family. And then there's that other thing: the blackouts.
See, there's times that Jaz can't account for and things that happen in those times that Vayl - not to mention the CIA - may not appreciate. And if they find out, Jasmine knows it won't just be her contract that's terminated . . ."

This promises to be the start of a good series. Think a cross between Feehan and LKH. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good vampire book with a twist.
