Unlike other politicians, Ethan Carrick is a nice guy-and a hot, casino-owning vampire. And with elections coming up, he’d like to find his First Lady-if his opponent’s hit men don’t find him first.

My Thoughts

This was a nice light read.  I enjoyed the witting characters and the life that Erin McCarthy brings to them.  I felt like I was dropped right in the middle of their world in Vegas and completely understood what was going on.  I enjoyed this lighter view of vampires and their habits.  Most vampire books are a bit dark but this one was really not.  The relationship between Alexis and Brittney was interesting and helped to me really understand each of these women.  There were some VERY hot sex scenes in this book.  Contraryy to the synopsis above this book was much more about the growing relationship between Ethan and Alexis that this political election.  The politic did add a bit of drama to the book but did not seem to be the main focus. 

My Rating

Overall , this was a good fun read.  I give it 3 out of 5 stars.  I would recommend this as a great book after some in depth stressful reads or just to pass the time.
