a hiatus midway through this book Talk about sucks ville Ms Dalrae has woven a wonderful story Her heroine, Jessica Sweet great first name BTW is really sweet As in slang for kick ass And what s even better is that she has no idea how badass she really is She s just a normal nothing special to see here folks kinda girl Oh, except for the fact that she has these psychic visions, premonitions of the future that always come true Like I said, just your run of the mill average girl Add to Jessica s psychic ability the fact that outta nowhere she finds herself in the company of Vamps, Sorcerers and Weres embroiled in some centuries old war and you ve got a recipe for a stellar story But Ms Dalrae doesn t stop there we re also treated to an impossible attraction between sweet Jessica and one sexy as sin Vamp named Raven The two main characters were fabulously portrayed I loved the backstories of both characters While both sad, Raven s held its own unique flavor of tragedy The supporting characters were each little gems in their own right Jessica s best friends Piper and Alexander Alex created a really fun and believable dynamic Then there was Raven s crew an elite group of Vampire warriors dedicated to enforcing Vampire law and keeping Vamp existence a secret from all humans Side note After this trilogy wraps, if she d like to treat us to a book featuring each of the Vamps on the Team I ll be first in line for my copies Start with Tas please Then Harrier he may be an ass, but he s a sexy one The tension, both of pending war between the supernatural and that of the sexual variety between Raven and Jessica, was well maintained through the entire story As the first book in a trilogy, the ending was satisfying but with just enough turmoil left brewing that I absolutely cannot wait to sink my fangs into the next installment I loved this book Thank you for an entertaining and addicting read A Blood Pumping Novel Invoking vampire vernacular, Jessica Sweet, a twenty

into a supernatural world and falls in love with Raven, a vamp whose reputation of a bloody past torments him I stake my claim that Sweet Vengeance is not your granddaddy o Drac paranormal novel with a trope vamp as caped crusader, night cruisin in a black, horse drawn hackney coach, prone to hanging upside down like a bat, or sleeping inside a coffin Cast aside the legendary notions of garlic, holy water, wooden stakes, and brandishing crosses as vampire antidotes too, but hang onto solar sensitivity.These Vamps, who are front and center in the novel, and reside in the subterranean Legions compound, resemble outlaw bikers in leather garb or camou fatigues with the personas and physiques of a surfer dude, GQ model, ruffian, and computer geek representing a race striving to survive under the radar by adhering to their own code of ethics As do the other societal factions in the story, co existing in harmony and disharmony amongst unsuspecting humans Werewolves Weres , Sorcerers Sorcs , and Shifters who join forces with one another when it suits their purpose For the most part, each paranormal division is mindful of the environment by taking only what is needed from the earth Besides the credibility factor and character empathy the author elicits from the reader, like a pair of vamp fangs, her writing is sharp and to the point as she leads you over hill and dale along the trail of 93 short and sweet chapters with everything going for it There are plot twists and turns I never saw coming, though in retrospect, she alluded from the beginning to the shocker in the epilogue Told in alternating first person narratives, the reader reaps all the benefits of perception and introspection There s witty dialogue Most importantly, the protagonists are so well developed that I felt the anguish of Raven s inner conflicts I highly recommend this blood pumping novel whose story will course through my veins until my next feed from the upcoming novels in the trilogy This is an interesting take on the paranormal romance genre with vampires, shifters, and witches There s ancient curses and bad boys I don t quite think I d make my bad boy MC a rapist and have him referred to that way throughout the entire book, but he s somehow redeemed by the books end There s a twist at the end about the curse that I didn t see coming I do have to wonder if we re going to seeof the

end about the curse that I didn t see coming I do have to wonder if we re going to seeof the scorcerers and Raven s curse as the series progresses, but overall, it was an enjoyable read Absolutely loved this story Hot vampires, werewolves and evil sorcerers with Jessica Sweet right in the midst of all of it I loved Jessica who started out as somewhat lonely and vulnerable but watch out when someone threatens someone she cares about I think that there is muchstory to tell and can t wait the read the second installment. Jessica Sweet thought she was just an ordinary girl, living an ordinary life A life with visions of the future, that is She goes about her normal country life in Fallen Cross, Ohio until one of her visions comes true and sends a hurt, bleeding man unconscious on her doorstep She had no idea that that man was a vampire and would become the love of her life Now, before you go Oh, it s one of those stories I have to tell you that this is not your average vampire meets girl story There s not Jessica Sweet thought she was just an ordinary girl, living an ordinary life A life with visions of the future, that is She goes about her normal country life in Fallen Cross, Ohio until one of her visions comes true and sends a hurt, bleeding man unconscious on her doorstep She had no idea that that man was a vampire and would become the love of her life Now, before you go Oh, it s one of those stories I have to tell you that this is not your average vampire meets girl story There s not only Vampires and Werewolves, but ancient Sorcerers too Aliya DalRae s first novel in the Jessica Sweet Trilogy is a uniquely riveting and quite addicting story of redemption, love, and plenty of action to go around.The Review From the beginning of this book I was immediately drawn in Aliya DalRae has done a great job of showing, not telling and throws words in there that make me vividly see the world she is building Her writing is up there in the top for me and I applaud her for this great talent in storytelling What I like about Jessica is that, even though she falls in love with a guy with a horrifying past she has no idea about, she is self sufficient and independent After her adopted parents die, she I m assuming inherits the old farmhouse and small, family business of refurbishing old furniture I like how she doesn t have a stereotypical job liked waiter or assistant She s the boss and sets her own hours It s also realistic I have to admit that I have a soft spot for a good vampire human love story, but this one is my favorite by far because Jessica Sweet isn t some weakling and she even has a talent of her own Did I mention she sees the future That s pretty cool The only problem I had with this is that it seems like she doesn t get that sometimes she shouldn t do exactly what her visions show her There were frustrating moments when she only thought of two options and I m here like you have a third option It s so simple But then I would assume that s the author s intent, right To get you invested in the character and send plot twists to keep you frustrated hooked and boy did it work Remember me mentioning a naked guy Well, the naked guy is actually a vampire named Raven Jessica thought she had another vision of the same scene of him on her porch, but after seeing him at the Mayor s fundraiser she realizes that it wasn t just a vision and that it actually did happen Jessica is dragged to this fundraiser by her best friend Piper, along with her other best friend Alex, a guy who is sweet on Jessica see what I did there and makes Raven growl a lot I didn t want to like Raven after I found out about his past of being the Rapist vampire, but his past was 500 hundred years ago and he literally tortured himself for five hundred centuries He also repented and has continuously repented for just as long I think five hundred centuries of repentance and torture which is twice as long as he lost his humanity is enough of a punishment and shows you that he has actually changed He also loathes himself He desperately wants to leave Jessica alone, for her not to get mixed up into his world, but in over 500 hundred years of being dead with grief he finally finds himself alive with love He has found his true love and can t seem to stay away and at this point in the story none of us are complaining I loathed Raven at first, but I think he deserves a break since he shows us by his actions that he has truly changed his ways Jessica is his one true love She is his redemption.I don t like Malcolm Malcolm the cat is a weird and creepy concept At first I thought it would be just her guardian, but now that I know it s some creepy guy cat who thinks she s his Not a fan of that It s just weird Raven needs to tell her because that is awful I don t think it was meant to come across that way, but Malcolm is a creep and should be ashamed of keeping this secret from Jessica And who is he reporting to about Jessica Who is his Overlord I hope we ll find out at some point through this trilogy.The villain of the story, Fuhrmann the Sorcerer, is definitely an evil one How he s connected to Raven and Jessica is astonishing and the ending will definitely surprise you Also, what happens in the Epilogue Wow That s a story I d like to find outabout and could change Jessica s life evenStar Rating Report Card 4.43 Stars out of 51 Were the characters believable 4 stars2 Did you like the characters 2 stars3 Does the story move at a good pace 5 stars4 Are
