My Review:

4/5 Stars!

Blood Kiss is a dark, suspenseful romantic, thriller!

Alisha has a stalker.  At first, she thought it was a secret admirer, but when he starts to escalate, Alisha decides to take her safety into her own hands.  This leads her to a gun store and Mike, the hot security specialist with a troubled past.  They share an instant attraction to each other, which only grows the closer they get.

The book is written in third person, which adds to the creepiness, as we get chapters from the stalker’s perspective, too.

The story does drag a little, at times, but overall, it is a good book!
