Review: Blood Betrayal by Alison Beightol

 Title: Blood Betrayal
Author: Alison Beightol
Source: Received through blog tour in exchange for an honest review

Synopsis:

Being the world’s oldest vampire was easy for Eamon Rutherford before he decided to take a companion. Now he finds that the avalanche of problems complicating his life stems from women… his women.

In the past, women were a beautiful meal and a one-night stand for vampire Eamon Rutherford but now he wants a companion. His less than perfect choice is temperamental ballerina Lauryl Mellis. When she escapes from him in London, Eamon discovers that to find a new love he must first love someone other than himself but even if he can do that it might be short lived if Lauryl has her way.




Review:



 
Blood Betrayal is the first book in a new series by Alison Beightol. It's about a lonely man named Eamon, who is the world's oldest vampire. For hundreds of years, he has been alone and now has the urge to find a companion. He becomes obsessed with a ballerina named Lauryl, who wants nothing to do with him.

This book went in a direction I wasn't expecting. I won't say any more on that part because I don't want to ruin things for anyone. I was just surprised. For the first half of the book, I didn't like Eamon. He grew on me during the second half though, as he went through some inner changes after being betrayed. I did not like Lauryl at all throughout the entire book. I have no idea what Eamon saw in her. Since I wasn't a big fan of the characters, it was a little hard for me to connect with the book. The first half of the book I thought seemed a bit slow and would rate it at a 3. I liked the second half more and would rate it at a 4... so I'm giving this book 3.5 stars.

This is an adult paranormal romance book with some very steamy scenes! This book is getting a lot of wonderful reviews. It's not the typical, predictable vampire book. I think many readers will really enjoy this and I recommend it to adult vampire lovers.
