Blood Slave by Travis Luedke

DNF @ 28%

I was looking forward to reading this book but the execution left me wanting. It's about a bisexual Colombian escort who ends up running afoul of a vampire client one day, who ends up dragging Esperanza back to her Master, who ends up taking her on as a blood slave in order to protect her from being killed. Hot, right? Yeah, I was hoping so, too. Vampires are a huge weakness of mine.

My problem with this book is that it seems to be more porn than plot and I didn't think the sex scenes were that sexy. In fact, the F/F scene some of the reviews were complaining about was actually much hotter (to me) than the M/F scene that involves some cervix-slamming action that reduces her cervix to "sponge." Ummmm, no.

Originally I kind of liked the casual narration style but it devolves as the book goes on and becomes quite stupid. The Spanish also wasn't super great. The author seemed to have tried, but he didn't use accent marks, so when he meant to say araƱa, he actually uses "arana." The whole book felt kind of sloppy like that.

Wish I was able to give this book a higher rating, but it just isn't what I'm looking for in vampire fiction. Others may enjoy it, but this is not my thing at all.

1.5 out of 5 stars
