    Super Loved, loved, loved, this book. It completely grabbed my attention and kept it. It's entirely entrancing, with awesome characters, a great story and excellent writing. I'm on to book two, these books need to be read in order, and continue. They are not standalone's. I think this is going to be a must read series. Super Loved, loved, loved, this book.

    I absolutely loved this novella especially Caine. I like how mysterious and very much respectable towards Felicity. By far he is my favorite character and my least favorite character is Sindy who in my opinion is a jealous hater. All in all I loved this Read and I am looking forward to reading more and you definitely have a loyal fan out of me for life.

I hadn't read any of her books previously so my choice was the first 3 Novellas in the Almost Human 1st series. I have just finished reading the first of them, Captivating Vampires. I am a big fan of this genre, so it was with a little trepidation that I started reading the book. So many people go so wrong when they attempt to write a good vampire novel. But I am happy to say that this author did a brilliant job of it. From the very first page I was hooked, there was just the right amount of drama, a little titillation of lust, and a surprising amount of emotional moments, especially when it came to the elder vampire Cain. Cain's goal in life is to make other vampires realise that they can live in harmony with humans, and not terrorise them. They need to keep themselves to themselves in order for their survival. He has recently moved to town to try to control Sindy, a younger vampire who is headstrong, and doesn't want to be told what to do. When Cain angers her from not being interested in her, she fights his instruction even more than usual. Felicity is new to town, she's living in the dorms of her college where her parents have sent her in order to do more with her life than they have been able to. She gets a part time job in a book store/cafe where she meets Ben. Ben knows all about the vampires, so when Felicity closed the book shop and was prepared to walk home, Ben insisted he walk with her. They got attacked by Sindy and two other vampires that she sired. Ben was able to hold his own against the two male vampires, but Sindy was about to feed from Felicity when Cain rescued her. That was her introduction to him. Great way to meet huh?? When Felicity sees him again in the cafe, under calmer circumstances, she has an instant rapport with him. Not because he enthrals her with his vampire powers, he wouldn't do that, and besides she doesn't even know that he is a vampire. To her, he's just a really nice guy, a gorgeous one too, that saved her life. What does she do when she does find out he's a vampire, and that indeed there are other vampires in the town apart from him. There are ones she knows nothing about, as well as the ones that are out to get her and Ben. Why are they particularly interested in her and her friend? She doesn't realise it's just Sindy's way to provoke Cain, push the boundaries of the orders to leave them alone. He should kill them for their insubordination, but he would rather reform them! Can Cain keep control of them and keep Felicity and Ben safe. Also can Cain keep from falling for Felicity, does he even want to? He lives a very lonely life and Felicity is a breath of fresh air for him. Now that I have read the first book, I am happily moving onto the next in the series, I can't wait to find out what happens next. It's great that this is an already complete series so that I won't be left with cliff hangers!

    Felicity has enrolled at college in a small town in New York. The perpetual wallflower hopes that a fresh start will help to bring her out of her shell and set the tone for her adult life. However things don't go to plan when she finds it just as hard to find her niche in the new school as she did in the old one. Her coworkers at her new bookstore job are a mixed bunch but handsome barista Ben seems willing to show her the ropes.

The perpetual wallflower hopes that a fresh start will help to bring her out of her shell and set the tone for her adult life. However things don't go to plan when she finds it just as hard to find her niche in the new school as she did in the old one. Her coworkers at her new bookstore job are a mixed bunch but handsome barista Ben seems willing to show her the ropes. Felicity soon realises that the town might not be as sleepy as it seems when the pair are set upon by a group of teen vampires. Their rescuer, the handsome Cain, is much more equipped to handle the vampires and Felicity's safety. She soon finds it hard to distance herself from the older vampire. "No, he was just different than the guys she’d dated. He was more mature for one thing...way. Over three hundred years more mature " Felicity is torn between her attraction to the safe but seemingly taken Ben and the longing she feels for the dark but vulnerable Cain. Before she can make any decisions, a female vampire with an agenda of her own decides to toy with Felicity but who will she run to for help? I thoroughly enjoyed this novella, it didn't feel like a 'teen' story, even though they were older teenagers. The adult themes of loneliness, religion and life experience gave it a depth that kept me hooked. Felicity was open, sweet and seeing her through Cain's world weary eyes she was a breath of fresh air. Cain was an interesting character; strong, handsome and slightly tortured, but also terribly lonely, regretful and unsure. He's not an alpha male, he came across as simply a man, trying to do the right thing and not always sure what that is. This set a great foundation for the rest of the series and I'd be excited to see what happens next. I received a copy of this novella in exchange for an honest review.

In this novella we are introduced to the two main characters, Felicity Snow a teenager who has come to college in a small upstate town in New York hoping to make friends and come out of her shell. Cain a three hundred year old vampire who is in town trying to turn the violent vampires into more productive beings, so far very unsuccessfully. His main catalyst is Sindy who is a vampire that is quite full of herself along with the two boys she turned. Felicity gets a job in a bookstore where she meets Ben. Ben becomes her friend and one night while walking home together they are attacked, but not by anything human. Sindy and her two pets are looking for a good time and a good meal but are stopped by Cain. Now Felicity has to face the reality that vampires are not just in movies. The first meeting with Cain turns into something else, something neither expected. He now has a big fight ahead of him and that is not with Sindy but with himself. He has to keep away from Felicity but is having trouble doing so. I can't wait for the second novella and highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a good vampire story. I now know that I have nine weeks of great reading ahead of me. Reviewed by: Linda Tonis Member of the Paranormal Romance Review Team

    Felicity moves to a small town to attend college, but it is more than she bargained for - the town is full of vampires. As she tries to juggle school, her new job and not becoming a snack for the vamps, Felicity meets Cain. But Cain is hiding a secret. While I believe the vampire genre has been overdone this was still an enjoyable read mainly because of the main character, she was well written and the story moved along at a decent pace.

There were a few formatting errors and the odd grammar error - the word Untitled was used twice when I think the author meant title or entitled. Otherwise it was a good read and I would recommend it.

    The first thing I have to say is that all the reviews I have seen were absolutely right about this series. It is addictive! I started with the first series, although the author said that first and second series occur at the same time and the order is not of consequence. And I kept going because the story swallowed me whole. As I said, addictive. Writing is great as are the characters.

And I kept going because the story swallowed me whole. As I said, addictive. Writing is great as are the characters. The story managed to create that particular deep connection between two characters, one innocent (but not stupid) and the other reserved (but cannot resist), both careful, try to keep the distance but not succeeding. There are no damsels in distress here, as all the girls can take care of themselves. The first three stories indeed make a book and it makes no sense considering them separately. Initially, I had no clue where the story was going, as I didn't read the summary, so I was curious. It turned out that it wasn't only the plot that makes this series addictive, but the way the author adapted and built the world and characters to the familiar plot of boy meets girl. The flow of the author's writing is remarkable as is the consistency and realistic presentation of the characters.

Cain is a do-gooder vampire. He had a bad past but after he became a vampire, it was like a wake up call. He wants to see the humans and the vampires live in peace.

Every movie that you watch or book that you read about vampires, each has their own version whether it's the legends and myths, the lust or sex, the era, the good ones trying to help others or the mean ones who are determined to destroy everything in their path. This book had me captivated from the very beginning. This author is new to me and I very much enjoyed her writings as well as her imagination. I'm volunteering and honest review for an advanced readers copy.

    Gotta love the Vampires. Every time I read a story about vampires and the brush with the paranormal, I find something different. I love that. Each author who writes about vampires writes about their own version of vampires. Yes, there are some things that all vampires have in common, after all they are vampires. All are blood suckers, some do it for lust, some do it for sex, some do it to feed and some do it to survive. Cain is a vampire and he used to be human.
