The Vampire and the Virgin by Kerrelyn Sparks: Mini Book Review

The Vampire and the Virgin (Love at Stake #8)
by Kerrelyn Sparks
Avon (HarperCollins)
ISBN: 978-0-06-166786-2
Buy From Indigo

Description: Olivia's packing list:

1. Sunscreen
2. Bathing suit
3. Flip-flops
FBI psychologist Olivia Sotiris was looking for a cool ocean breeze, sand between her toes, and a break from her crazy, chaotic, and sometimes all-too-dangerous life. But when she escaped to the small Greek island of Patmos, all she got were meddling grandmothers trying to marry her off. Can't they see that none of the men around interests her—except Robby MacKay?
Robby's packing list:

1. Synthetic blood
2. More synthetic blood
3. Jogging clothes
(even vamps have to stay in shape!)
 Robby needs to cool off, too, since all he can think about is revenge on the Malcontent bloodsuckers who once held him captive—but then he meets Olivia, the beauty with wild curls and a tempting smile. When a deadly criminal from a case back home tracks her down, Robby will have to save her life—along with giving her a first time she'll never forget . . .
Mini Book Review: Won't lie to you, wasn't expecting much from the title, but Natasha convinced me that I would enjoy it.  She was right, it was a perfect light and funny read with plenty of action to keep the story moving.  I understand that it is part of a series but the story is told in such a way, that you really don't need to read the rest of the series to figure out what is going on. Robbie and Olivia are both charming, likeable leads and the secondary characters get you intrigued enough to want to know more about them, in other words just enough to go out and get the other books in the series (Yup, I will be doing that).  I like Kerrelyn's writing style and the dialogue is just plain hilarious at times.  This would be perfect for a day at the beach or to escape on a cold winters night.

I borrowed this from Natasha - after I totally gave it to her for Christmas last year
