Book Review of --
Sanguinary (Night Shift Book 1) by Margo Bond Collins
Overall star rating --- 5
About the book:
When Dallas police detective Cami Davis joined the city’s vampire unit, she planned to use the job as a stepping-stone to a better position in the department. She didn’t know then what she knows now: A silent war rages between humans and their supposedly pacified predators, and the vampires are winning. With the clock running out on her kind, Cami will do whatever she must to defeat the “Sanguinary.”
Enter Reese Fulton, a disaffected ex-cop and a vampire. She can’t exactly trust him, but with his cowboy boots and good-ole-boy drawl he’s the perfect beard for Cami’s fledgling undercover operation. Yet playing Reese’s Claimed—a vampire’s personal bloodgiver—isn’t as straightforward as she was led to believe. His bite is as enthralling as his dimpled smile, and soon Cami is wondering which will pose more of a challenge: subduing the enemies of humanity...or her own desire.

The review --
This is the first book that I have read by this author, and I was very impressed. The characters were so real in this book that I truly felt as if I was right there with them. Cami and Reese make a great team. I loved following their story as they got to know each other better, and the circumstances they got into. This book has tons of action and I was sucked in right at the beginning. This book held my attention all the way through and I could not believe the ending. The author totally left us hanging, ready for the next book. I love cliffhanger books like this. The action in this book was intense; the connection between Reese and Cami was super hot, and once they got together…watch out. I can’t wait to read the next book to find out what happens to them now. I highly recommend this book to vampire lovers everywhere. It’s great and I should mention there are a lot of funny parts as well. Cami is a real butt-kicker of a character and that is awesome!
