Bad Mouth (Immortalis #1) by Angela McCallister
Release Date: 20 May 2013
After her ex-husband’s obsession with vampires, Valerie Craig is on a mission to stop transformations. Of all vampires, Kade Rollins is the worst of the worst, but when multiple murders plague Seattle, Val is forced to enlist his aid. Kade’s crude wit and seductive nature attract her like no other, but she can’t ignore his violence toward his human servants, no matter her yearning to forget.
She’s torn when she learns Kade may be behind the murders. Val's worked hard to protect humans from vampires, but the truth surrounding the murders could ignite a bloody battle between their races, one humans are sure to lose. Someone is pulling strings to build a vampire army and spark the war—setting Kade up to kick it off. But if she trusts the vampire prince, she risks her job, her integrity, and her heart if he betrays her as all the men in her life have.
My Opinion 4 STARS
It took me a little while to get into this book, however I'm really glad now that I did.
I wasn't sure what to make of it at first with Valerie being more conservative in her ways than I was expecting. The book title also didn't sit right with me. I still think it would be better with a different title, even if Kade Rollins has a dirty mouth.
However it's Kade dirty mouth and the chemistry between the hater's to lovers tale that woo'ed me in. Kade is one seriously hot vampire, stoic when he needs to be and all hot and kinda romantic at other times.
It doesn't take long for both parties to have their preconceptions altered because of one another, especially with their mutual, honesty (to an extent) with one another. Each gets something from the other that they have not had before.
There was lots of twists and turns and I never actually guessed the who-done-it.
The book had some of the original vampire stuff, but they were also given a new twist, so it didn't feel like a lot of the other books out there.
