Review: Velvet by Temple West




First rule of dealing with hot vampire bodyguards? Don't fall in love.

After losing both her parents before age seventeen, aspiring designer Caitlin Holte feels like her whole world has been turned upside down, and that was before the terrifying encounter with a supernatural force. Then, she learns that her hot bad-boy neighbor, Adrian—who might have just saved her life—is actually a half-demon vampire.

Suddenly Caitlin is stuck with a vampire bodyguard who feels that the best way to protect her is to become her pretend boyfriend. Trouble is, Caitlin is starting to fall in love for real, while Adrian can never love a human. Caitlin trusts Adrian to keep her safe from his demon father, but will he be able to protect her heart?

My Thoughts...

Let me start off by saying that the first line in the summary "First rule of dealing with hot vampire bodyguards?" and "Don't fall in love" had me itching to read this! It has been a very long time since I read a really good vampire romance, to say the least I was VERY excited to dig into this book! 

I just could not get enough of Caitlyn & Adiran! Their chemistry was so HOT it was practically melting off of the pages! I also really enjoyed the banter between the two, my favorite scene in the book is a ice skating / sled riding scene. I don't want to give away too much but I just loved the way in which Adrian was such a gentleman at the end of their ice skating outing, if you want to know more details and swoon like I did you will have to pick up a copy of Velvet for yourself! 

Not only did Temple West write amazing main characters her secondary characters are pretty darn awesome as well! I loved the sense of family being important to both Caitlyn and Adrian, and it's nice that you get to know them as the book progresses. 

Is this book for you? Well if you LOVE romance, the kind that gives you butterflies just reading about, then this book is for you! 

I LOVED IT!!
