Melissa's Review:

Darcy Newhart is a vampire that wants to get back into her dream job. With only one TV network to join as a vampire, Darcy manages to get a director job for a brand new reality TV show called The Sexiest Man on Earth. The show will mainly have vampires vying for Roman Draganesti's former harem girls, though there will be a few mortals tossed in to add spice to the show.

Austin Erickson, a key member of the CIA's Stake-Out team manages to grab one of the human spots for The Sexiest Man on Earth TV show. He's supposed to gather information on the vampires, their names and what not while he's there. His growing attraction to Darcy, the director of the show was not in his plans, though. The two had that forbidden romance going on, which I typically enjoy in books. They both think it won't ever work out with one another, yet they're still drawn to each other.

While I enjoyed Vamps and the City, I felt myself losing interest at times while listening to the audiobook. I enjoyed Austin's character but didn't quite feel a connection with our leading lady, Darcy. The writing was on par with book one and I'll be interested to see where the series goes from here. I already started book three and it looks like the series is going to go next to another Stake-Out team member. All in all, I'd recommend the series if you're looking for a vampire paranormal romance.

    1. Still enjoying the series, but the reality show bit I wasn't a huge fan of.
