Review of Laney (Brookehaven Vampires #1)

With the recent release of Tainted Blood, the 3rd book in the series, I decided it was time for a full series re-read! So in the next few weeks I'll be posting my reviews for each book. Enjoy. 


Laney: The Brookehaven Vampires
by Joann I. Martin Sowles


In a small college town in Northern California, Laney Alexander leads a regular, uneventful life–that is, until the charming and alluring Oliver
Knight enters her world. Who is this gorgeous and mysterious stranger? Or, rather, what is he?

As Laney’s sophomore year of college begins, so does an unbelievable adventure–including a love she didn’t know she longed for. She soon learns that Oliver is not ordinary, nor is the rest of his family, including a sister who openly hates her and a brother who will stop at nothing for revenge. As she fights for her life, and Oliver’s love, Laney discovers that the fictional world of vampires isn’t so fictional after all. Nobody is safe, especially Laney, Oliver’s most important priority, and he will stop at nothing to protect her. With her mortality at risk, and a commitment revealed that she, without a doubt, knows she wants, Laney’s life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn…


This is my second time reading the book, and I think I enjoyed it more this time around! I could focus more on other details instead of just being caught up in the intense relationship. I LOVE this series and am so happy I decided to re-read it! 

Laney is your average everyday college student, sharing an apartment with her best friend, Kiera - that is until Oliver shows up. Turns out this extremely hot guy Laney finds herself day dreaming about is not only in all of her classes, but he is living in the same apartment complex with none other than Kiera's love interest, Carter. 
As Laney finds Kiera and Carter spending more and more time together, she is left with her Knight and shining teeth, yes Oliver Knight turns out to be a vampire! Laney doesn't find this out until she is already head over heals in love with him - so whats a girl to do? The innocent flirting between Laney and Oliver quickly turns into some serious sexual tension once she finds out that he's a vampire, but then she is faced with the biggest dicision of her life - bond with Oliver and be his forever, or walk away?

This book has a perfect balance of, well, everything! Action,  suspense, sarcasm, comedy, and of course sexual tension and romance. I HIGHLY recommend this book for everyone - you don't even have to be a paranormal addict to get into the romance and story line.
