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.
With all the hot, shirtless dude and man nip hanging out on this cover, I feel like it's my favorite day of the week -- Top Off Tuesday! But, instead, it's my OTHER favorite day of the week -- Friday! It seems appropriate that I'm reviewing BAD MOUTH on such a frabjulous day because there's just something so tasty about a story where the two characters meet, argue-argue-argue then have hot, passionate sex (sometimes, that angry sex...yum), argue some more and finally fall for each other.
Kade's a jerk (I feel like lately, I've been reading a lot of hey, this alpha male is a total jerkwad but we wind up loving him anyway stories. Huh. I might have to explore that at some point. Or not.). He's rude, crude and, to top that, he's a vampire. So, of course, he's hot as hell. And a vampire prince on top of it. As part of the movement to make vampire transformations illegal, Valerie has a dislike of vampires in general and, once she meets Kade, of that vampire in particular. She's a pretty determined woman who isn't easily charmed, which makes her tumble into Kade's arms and heart even more fun to watch. And Kade, because he's such a player, his fall deep into the throes of love feels like justice of the best kind.
BAD MOUTH is a fun, fast read, perfect for lazing away a couple of hours on the porch with a light breeze blowing, the birds chirping and a tall, icy glass of spiked lemonade on the table beside you.
