This is a wonderfully written vampire story!! A fast paced, easy read that grabs you from the first page and just keeps going. I would say it is like 50 Shades of Grey only with vampires and written much better! I love that it has a slightly new take on vampires that combines traditional aspects with some new characteristics! The sex and violence scenes are very graphic and much more like an adult vampire love story than most others I have read. The characters were very well-rounded and Aaron has a great background that gives added dimension to his character and makes him easy to relate to, but I would love to hear more of Michelle's background(maybe in the next book!). Aaron's quick acceptance of his fate was a surprising plus, as I tire quickly of drawn out acceptance issues.
There were definitely no "slow" areas in this story at all! It was in an almost constant state of action, which was very nice(no one likes slow stories!).
The only part I was iffy on was near the end when Michelle confronts Delia. Part of me was thinking it was a little too much, but the other part of me thought it went quite well with the rest of the story.
If you like vampire love stories, you will love this book!

This is a great book! It is one of those ones that makes you fall in love with the characters so much that you are hoping that everything works out for them. Amber Garza gives great depth to her characters and the storyline is wonderful! Colt is hiding something in his past and desperately wants Paige to like him as he very much likes her but what if she finds out? Will Paige be able to trust him even if she finds out what he is hiding? Can they learn to trust each other? It is just a wonderful story!!

- Save My Soul - Book 1 in the 'Save My Soul' series
on Oct. 27, 2013
This was a truly wonderful read! It grabbed me right from the beginning and before I knew it, it was midnight and had to go to bed! The story is beautifully written and Kendra is such a fun and unique character and I fell in love with her right away! I was afraid it might be too much of a religious type of book, trying to shove God down your throat like many others try to do. I was very pleasantly surprise that this book was nothing of that sort at all! I has a wonderful balance of religion and storyline that flowed together perfectly! I got very drawn into Kendra's person and towards the end cried a few times with her! I absolutely loved this book and highly recommend it to others to read! Now off to read the next one in the series! A Book Junky's Obsession ~ http://myopenlife2001.wordpress.com/2013/10/15/book-review-save-my-soul-by-k-s-haigwood/
