    At 29, 7 years in the force you shouldn't be a rookie. But that's the way heroine is written off, and how she describes herself. She's 29, going on 18, like her sidekick Mandy, the underage were. And this is the tone of the book, NAdultish. In her relationship with the sister, an other example of immature behaviour, and her high school boyfriend.... There's quite an heavy undertone to the plot, or there should be (human trafficking), but the real tone of the book is light. Bit jarring.

    I was looking for something a bit different in urban fantasy and spotted this by a new to me author. It has lots going in as it started with the heroine Jenna waking up dead ! Yep this rookie cop quite literally winds up in the mortuary and no one can explain why she was pronounced dead but isn’t. Jenna does what anyone else would and gets up and goes home but when she gets there she’s acquired a squatter who is anything but ordinary but then again so is Jenna ! I didn’t really connect with Jenna I was looking for something a bit different in urban fantasy and spotted this by a new to me author.

I didn’t really connect with Jenna and thought her attitude very unrealistic. Her partner has just been killed in front of her eyes and yet she seemed more bothered by her Werewolf squatter stealing her clothes. I did enjoy the overall idea though but frankly would have preferred a little more action. The addition of her extremely high maintenance twin sister was a good and slightly humorous twist . Unfortunately the males we meet didn’t excite me with a creepy almost ex ( it’s explained in the story) and a too cool agent who knows more than most about the shady world of vampires and their royalty. I might have rated this higher but my copy on kindle had several blank pages near the beginning which obviously didn’t exactly help things to flow.

    I read this as part of a three-volume boxed set. This first volume is all about the set up, which is excellent, but because there is so much page time on set up, it drags in places. Fortunately, because it was a box set, I keep going and the later volumes are solid 4-star reads.

They feel human, even the ones that clearly aren't, anymore. For instance, in Blood Vice we learn that Detective Jenna Skye, in her first week on the job has run headlong and against orders otherwise, into the basement of a vampire brothel and gotten her partner killed, and herself turned into a vampire. Yah, that would totally be me if someone was foolish enough to give me a badge. As the story progresses we meet other characters that are all just like someone we have met before. Characters like that, that aren't caricatures are very hard to find in Urban Fantasy. Angela Roquet nails it on the head! I think this book is a great addition to the vampire/werewolf urban fantasy world. I look forward to how these characters and the story itself continues to develop over the rest of the series.

    I haven't read urban fantasy for a long time, because my threshold for grisly violence and dark humor is easily breached. But, the description for this book made me think I might enjoy it, and I did. Not that there wasn't blood and violence, but I didn't find it offensive. And I found the story line interesting and the quality of the writing quite good. The storyline about sexual trafficking is all too real, even if in the real world there are not paranormals doing the trafficking.

And I found the story line interesting and the quality of the writing quite good. The storyline about sexual trafficking is all too real, even if in the real world there are not paranormals doing the trafficking. I found that bit of realism compelling, and I appreciated that the main characters were out to prevent it, not participate in it. Fortunately there were no real depictions of sexual activity, consensual or otherwise, though there was some foul language. I really liked the character of Mandy and the idea that she and Jenna (main character) will form a K9 team. I did find some things that didn't make sense, including Jenna's attraction to the ME. Another reviewer commented that it didn't make sense that Jenna was considered a rookie detective since she had been on the force for quite some time. I guess I've watched enough cop shows to know that they are two different kinds of police work, so it is logical that she be considered new. All that said, I'm not sure whether I will continue the series since it is not really my genre of choice. I have no doubt that others will continue to enjoy the series, and I am impressed by this author's writing.

    Promising A promising to the Blood Vice series. Jenna is a cop who is turned into a vampire on the job. Now shes trying to keep her job and not let anyone find her secret. I enjoyed this story. It has likable characters and storyline that I haven’t read before. I’m looking forward to more Jenna and Mandy adventures.

    It was a good first book of the year. I liked it. It has supernatural influence and police influence. It has vampires and werewolves and a hot detective. It is also funny and made me laugh out loud quite a few times. I really like Jenna, Mandy and Roman. I even like glitzy Laura. Will definitely find the other parts to read.

    I was torn between 1 and 2 stars, but the bottom line is she is doesn't write well, so 1 star it is. College level fiction writing course level. I made it to about 30%. Many stupid decisions by the main character in order to move the story along and create tension. Sentences thrown in to describe the scene or mood that were obviously there because the author knew it was required but couldn't figure out how to make it part of the scene, so, you know - just put in a random sentence.

The h has mummy issues, so decided to become a cop just like her when she died... almost a decade and NOTHING in the house had changed... including the bedspread and the answering machine message. Fine, weird, but fine. 7 years on patrol, and she’s bumped to detective (with her mum’s old partner of course), and in the first week, she does the standard dumbshit move by ignoring her partner and rushing into an unknown situation without backup... and gets them BOTH killed. Yes both. She wakes the next night in the morgue after accidentally being turned into a vamp, and rushes home without wanting to tell anyone she’s still alive yet, cause you know, she’s sad she was a dumbshit and got her partner killed. Oh, and she hasn’t figured out she’s a vamp yet either. Moving on, she finds herself with a side kick and a returned sister... who she’s fine with planning her future if her actress sister pretending to be her during daylight hours. Blink. Yes, let’s forget logistics of the twinning with people the sisters never met etc, and focus on the fact that the dumbass h is supposed to be a goddamn cop with the training and knowledge to back it up... and she’s fine with sis playing her part, cause it’s not like a cop would ever have to be a cop during daylight hours! Then, she gets roped into helping the PRN cops... and sees their targets in trouble. So, this time round she listens to her partner right? NO. SHE THROWS HERSELF OFF A FUCKING BUILDING!!!!! Then gets herself the rest of the way beaten to shit by hanging onto a moving vehicle. At this point, the prn cop has to feed her or she’ll die... again... from being a dumbshit... again! She’s learnt her lesson right!? No, she gets all stroppy, tanty when he tells her she’s dangerous and he wants her to stay in the car while he and backup go after the bad guys and ends up running after the bad guy when she catches sight. She finds the victims too... and at no fucking point does she try and get the attention of any of the other officers. She can be this hero with a broken gun herself! Anyway, there’s a little more to the story, but them’s the TSTL highlights. The ONLY reason I finished this was cause I liked the grave books and figured the h had to get some brains at some point. She didn’t. Ever. 1119

Rushed, half-assed plot. Maybe I should stop hoping that every supernatural cop story is going to be the next Kara Gillian for me. This seemed more like Anita Blake, from being in St. Louis, to vampires involuntarily "dying" at night, to the half-sired thing (which reminds me of human servants). Sigh.

    I shelved this as "juvenile", which -- if this is a "New Adult" novel, and I think it's supposed to be -- must mean "juvenile" is where I put NA novels, because the tone of this felt very young-and-light to me, even when the subject matter really seems like it could have lent a lot of weight (in a good way) to the story, but didn't. The author really seemed to want the reader to believe the protagonist had all the right feelings and inner conflicts about things that happened, with first-person in I shelved this as "juvenile", which -- if this is a "New Adult" novel, and I think it's supposed to be -- must mean "juvenile" is where I put NA novels, because the tone of this felt very young-and-light to me, even when the subject matter really seems like it could have lent a lot of weight (in a good way) to the story, but didn't. The author really seemed to want the reader to believe the protagonist had all the right feelings and inner conflicts about things that happened, with first-person inner monologue explaining to me how bad she felt about things, but actions speak louder than words sometimes. In this case, the actions were screaming TO HELL WITH THIS, LET'S GET TO THE FAST AND FUN ACTION-DRAMA! There's some excellent writing advice out there in the world instructing us all to "show, not tell", and while there are cases where that doesn't apply as readily I think following that advice very carefully would have helped overcome all this disconnect between supposed (and expected) state of the protagonist's heart and protagonist's actions. If the only way to convey that someone feels something is through describing the person's outward reactions, action will certainly reinforce the sense of those emotions for the reader, and make it more visceral and sympathetic. Almost none of that happened here. That's probably my biggest gripe with this novel. It was an easy-breezy read, and I basically finished it in three sittings over two days, then still had time to start another novel on the second day. It kept things moving so that my interest (such as it was in the first place) didn't flag, it actually addressed a lot of difficulties of being a vampire that other books often overlook (though it really too-conveniently tied up the last, and perhaps biggest, hurdle with a bow in the last few pages of the book), and the characters were at least interesting in concept. Descriptions didn't give me much to grab onto, and in many cases -- even for very central characters -- were almost entirely absent. That left me without much of a picture of them in my head, though a couple characters (including at least one who was there for only a single scene) got quite a bit more detail. The author got some bad information from somewhere about guns; a Glock 22 cannot just happily eat both 9mm and .40 S&W, because it's only chambered for .40 S&W (though a cop carrying a Glock 22 is at least pretty common; the Browning is less so). There's obviously a love triangle brewing by the end of the book, though it hasn't really arisen yet, and the one relationship that did "officially" start up (mostly off-page) seems weirdly innocent other than the blood-drinking scene. Minor quibbles aside, it doesn't feel like a waste of time, in part because it took so little time to read. It was enjoyable enough to plow through it, but it doesn't impress me in any way whatsoever. As the two-star rating says on Goodreads, "it was ok" (though, technically, that should be either "OK" or "okay").

    I will be honest, when I first read the description for "Blood Vice" I thought it would be a marginally good read. However, I wasn't prepared to be lured into the storyline hook, line and sinker.

I really enjoyed this little read and the drama between the characters. There is plenty of action, intrigue and moments of hilarity. The world building was great and in the end I definitely wanted to read more. I wasn't real crazy about the cover for this book. It's a little off and not very attractive but it's the storyline that counts. This is one you definitely want to put on your to read list.

Jenna is a cop, one with issues over the death of her mother who died on active duty. She 'dies' on a stake out whilst looking for an illegal brothel, and so her hunt once she turns vampire turns to the same case, as it turns out to be a supernatural one, under the supervision of 'special' Agent Knight from the FBI. Along for the ride is Mandy, a young teenage werewolf, who happens to be a witness to Jenna's murder and slightly unreliable guide to the supernatural world. I thought Jenna and Mandy had a fun chemistry and a lot of Jenna's exploits into the supernatural were amusing, although I did find the reluctance of Roman Knight to tell her anything annoying and obviously a way to facilitate Jenna knowing nothing about her new world. All in all good fun to pass the time and I will pick up the next book.

I would pick up another in the series if it showed up on my free or 99 cent lists, but otherwise, I probably won't. It's not that the story isn't well written, well-plotted and paced, with plenty of action and relatable characters. It's not because the writing is full of humor, it is. But for me, it just couldn't live up to the expectations created by the former series. For those of you reading this review, it might be different. But for me, this may be not only the first of the Blood Vice books I've read, but also the last.

I haven't decided if I will read the next book yet though.

What follows after is a hilarious series of events that makes her aware of her new state as a vampire. A vampire whose sire has died. That seems to throw a huge wrench in the plan as she now has to deal with unspoken laws of the vampire underground society, her life as a nightwalker, and the way it affects her job as a cop. Not to mention the werewolf girl sitting in her bedroom.

    Not bad, especially since it came for free. I can't quite bring myself to describe this as detective fiction, even if the heroine is a detective who suddenly ends up turning into a vampire. There's not much detecting going on. There's also a lot of foreshadowing and downright setup for future installments in the series. There's a setup for a love triangle which is probably going to be irritating, but could be amusing.

I'm going to pick up the second in the series, even if that's partially because I don't know what else to read right now. For fans of vampires with problems, intrigue, and love triangles.

I feel like everyone involved got over it really quick, even though it was a lie that Laura had been maintaining for like 10+ years (hide spoiler)]

    Highly highly recommend this book and series! Cops, vampires and werewolves...what more could you ask for? When a stake out goes wrong, Detective Jenna wakes up dead in the morgue and her partner dead. She quickly has to come to terms that she is now a vampire, her sire is dead and a teen werewolf has moved into her house with her. Jenna wants revenge for what was done to her and her partner, but how will she investigate when she can't go out in daytime and there's an FBI sticking his nose into Highly highly recommend this book and series!

This book has a lot of potential. As soon as I finished reading it, I immediately moved onto the next book in the series. Honestly, the series only gets better!

    Blood vice Interesting storyline. But somehow I couldn't warm up to the main character, to much denial and couldn't understand her behaviour regarding to her partner she lost she is more worried about Mandy the WW she meets. The plot is good, nothing wrong with it. Jenna woke up in the morgue, dead, as she was unknowingly turned into a vampire. What's worse she is a cop. And has still the same interiors in the house since her mother died. I also didn't liked the fact that she has a twin sister. T Blood vice Interesting storyline.

I do not think that I get the next one on this series, to much money and not many pages. Sorry for the not so good review.

    Great start to a series! This story is different from other vampire stories I have read. Jenna is a cool character and all the others in the story just add to it. I enjoyed reading this story very much and will be looking at the rest of the books in this series. The pace is fast, the tone is intense, the storyline is action oriented with character development and no steamy scenes and the characters are vivid and believable. This is a mystery with vampires and werewolves, not a romance! And it is Great start to a series! This story is different from other vampire stories I have read.

    A Fresh Take on the Werewolf/Vampire Genre A newly made vampire who doesn't have all the answers, and is trying to keep her job as a police detective, is helped to adjust to her undead life by a young werewolf who is not part of a pack. Their mutual desire to rescue a group of girls forced into working at a brothel is both facilitated and complicated by a half-vampire FBI agent who does have some of the answers. An enjoyable first book in a series I look forward to continuing to read.

    A good start for a promising series 4.5 stars. Yes you have your werewolves and vampires but I really enjoyed this spin. Detective Skye finds herself awakening in the morgue with more questions and guilt over her recent partners death. Thus starting her self appointed quest for answers and a new furry partner that wants her help solving the very same case that didn't end well for Jenna Skye. Really enjoyable. Some laughs and occasional answers as well as a fresh slew of questions. A good start for a promising series 4.5 stars. Yes you have your werewolves and vampires but I really enjoyed this spin.
