Book Birthday and Review: Bad Mouth by Angela McCallister

Bad Mouth by Angela McCallister
After her ex-husband’s obsession with vampires, Valerie Craig is on a mission to stop transformations. Of all vampires, Kade Rollins is the worst of the worst, but when multiple murders plague Seattle, Val is forced to enlist his aid. Kade’s crude wit and seductive nature attract her like no other, but she can’t ignore his violence toward his human servants, no matter her yearning to forget.

She’s torn when she learns Kade may be behind the murders. Val's worked hard to protect humans from vampires, but the truth surrounding the murders could ignite a bloody battle between their races, one humans are sure to lose. Someone is pulling strings to build a vampire army and spark the war—setting Kade up to kick it off. But if she trusts the vampire prince, she risks her job, her integrity, and her heart if he betrays her as all the men in her life have.

My thoughts:
Wonderfully written.  A new idea in a vampire romance is hard to come by these days, but this book is both original and creative.  I fell in love with the characters.  I was hooked in the first few pages and couldn't put the book down.  It is fantastic to see Kade and Valerie struggle with their beliefs, prejudices and desires.  Betrayal and trust are forefront for them both as they come to trust and care about each other.  The storyline is twisty and clever.  The characters come to life and grab you.  

I truly enjoyed the book and hope there is more to come!

Fantastic, Beverly! I'm super happy you enjoyed Bad Mouth, and I'm so glad to come across your review. As a debut author (and even the veterans, lol), there's always that feeling of being stripped in front of a crowd when the book comes out.

So this is the first book of the Immortalis series, and there's much more to come. Next book will solve the mystery of why Alice has issues with cops, yet works for the VLO. And I think readers will love Ian. He's not dark like Kade, but he's had a huge, formative loss in his life. Much more banter and tension in the follow-up to Bad Mouth.

Thanks again for such a positive review!
