What would you give to be with the one you love?

Would you give it all, including your life?

In a small college town in Northern California, Laney Alexander leads a regular, uneventful life–that is, until the charming and alluring Oliver Knight enters her world. Who is this gorgeous and mysterious stranger? Or, rather, what is he?

As Laney’s sophomore year of college begins, so does an unbelievable adventure–including a love she didn’t know she longed for. She soon learns that Oliver is not ordinary, nor is the rest of his family, including a sister who openly hates her and a brother who will stop at nothing for revenge. As she fights for her life, and Oliver’s love, Laney discovers that the fictional world of vampires isn’t so fictional after all. Nobody is safe, especially Laney, Oliver’s most important priority, and he will stop at nothing to protect her. With her mortality at risk, and a commitment revealed that she, without a doubt, knows she wants, Laney’s life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn…

As soon as I started reading this I found it really hard to put down. It is an amazing book that kept me guessing as to what would happen next. The two main characters are Laney and Oliver and I found myself clicking with them right away. Laney reminds me of myself at 18. And reading her story reminded me of that first love feeling when she meets Oliver, who is absolutely gorgeous. Oliver is very interesting and his story and his familys story will leave you wanting more.

Laney is Joann I. Martin Sowles debut novel and first in The Brookehaven Vampire Series. Reading I honestly wouldnt have thought it was her first novel and was written perfectly. She has managed to interwine many twists and turns throughout the novel that will keep the reader ingrossed in the story.

This is a great tale full of great twists, romance and some great humour and a few embarrassing moments for the characters that I found myself laughing out loud at. I recommend this to anyone who loves vampires.

Thank you Joann for this chance to read this fantastic tale before its offical released date and I am now waiting (not so) patiently for the next installment to find out what happens next. Laney is one of my favourite books now.

Rate: 5/5

  1. I really liked this book too. I loved the embarrassing moments, I don't laugh out loud very much from books but this one made me! The only thing I didn't like was it ended to soon for me, but that just means I will buy the second book that much faster when it gets released.
