Damon DeMasters is a vampire warrior who has taken an oath to not only protect his own kind, but humans as well. Crimson Rush is the new drug on the streets, and it’s their duty to find who is behind the selling of vampire blood and stop it.
A social worker, Nicole Callahan, fights for the right of every child placed in her care. There’s a war now, as vampires have stepped out into the spotlight taking their place in society, and the children are at the heart of it all.
Damon and his fellow warriors have been ordered by the Vampire Council to train Nicole and her colleagues against the dangers they now face in their new world. Even as sparks fly and tensions mount, Nicole and Damon depend on each other to protect the children of both races.
I read this book back in March 2014. Teresa has just released the audios and I am so enjoying going back and listening to them. I could not believe how much of the minor things I forgotten over the years. I have to say I still love these warriors today as much as I did 5 years ago.
Nicole is a social worker that takes her job seriously. She is determined to keep the kids safe and it doesn’t matter if they are human or vampire.
Damon, one of the Vampire Council Warriors, was sent to train the social workers on how to protect themselves while doing their jobs. The sparks start to fly as soon as Nicole and Damon first see each other. However, Damon does not want to get involved and attached so Nicole comes up with a “friends with benefits” option.
I love that Nicole is tough and stands up to these big tough Vampires, never backing down never giving up and has no issues getting in their faces. Things start to go bad when Nicole and the others realize there are some pretty mean people out to get her because she is doing her job so well. Damon pulls the “I’m getting too close so I’ll push her away” routine and right after she lays her feelings out on the table.
I also enjoyed the close friendship almost sisterly like relationship that Nicole and Pam have. Seeing Nicole, Pam, and Jared interacting was great. Pam and Jared always made me smile or laugh. I would get aggravated with Damon he would be so sweet and nice and then go all Alpha male thinking he was protecting Nicole but only end up hurting her feelings. Here again Nicole always called him out on it and stood up to anyone she felt was doing wrong by her. I loved that she had pet turtles, Ren and Stimpy, and not the typical cat or dog. The way Nicole collects the money for the kids Christmas party was a gag.
Like i said enjoyed this book today as much as I did when I read it. I am so ready for Jared. The narrator did a wonderful job his voice changes were enough that you realized it was a different character. I am so ready to listen to all these warriors stories and catch up on all of them.
Being a full-time writer has allowed Teresa to connect more with readers which is what she loves most about writing. If you find the time she would love to hear from you!
