First Blood = First Taste

I received a complimentary copy of First Blood in exchange for this review. All opinions expressed by 100% mine.

I am so excited when one of my favorite authors sends me an email to ask if I am up to reading their newest books. I of course jump at the chance because after all they are one of my favorite authors.

So imagine my excitement when I received an email from Judy Serrano. I was first introduced to Judy’s writings when I reviewed her first book “Easter’s Lilly.” In fact, if you check it out on Amazon – in the Kindle Version you can see where I am quoted. So enough of my gushing over how much I love this author, let me tell you about her newest book, First Blood.


Here is a brief summary of the book.

Diamond never asked to be a vampire. Unfortunately for her, her transition requires her to have her first blood given to her by a full-blooded, male vampire. Her father takes her to Dante, the kingpin of the vampire mafia, who is a close and old friend of the family, to do the job. After much resistance, Dante accepts and their worlds are turned upside down. Dante unexpectedly links to Diamond, causing a connection that appears to be unbreakable. The only known cure for vampirism is when a vampire links to the soul of a human: the soul that once belonged to them.  Diamond is discovered to have a special and unique bloodline, which makes her extremely valuable to the vampire species. As more and more vampires become aware of her gift, the race is on to see who can gain control of her first. With her first blood gone, her new love hovering, and a rival gang hanging in the midst, it is all Diamond can do to stay safe. Will her link to Dante save her, or put her in more danger than she can handle. Sometimes true love is worth the risk.

Once again, Serrano hit a home run. I love that she mentions the characters that I fell in love with in Easter’s Lilly- even if it is just a mention. I will have to say that some of scenes made me blush a little because they are downright hot!!! Vampires and humans connections seemed to be overdone these days but Serrano has managed to take an old idea and give it a fresh look. Who knew so many things could come into play when involving vampires? Sabers and werewolves and not to mention the witches as well. There is never a dull moment in this book.
