Summary: (from goodreads) 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…

I love when I read a book from a author that is not well known and some how slipped under the cracks and the book is Great! So glad Joann contact us to review her book, if not I would have missed a great read and about Vampires. You know how much I adore those paranormal creatures. The book begins slow but do think its stay like that thought the pages, it starts to build up momentum until its speed right by you. The plot was good and it leaves enough for book two. Laney definitely has great drama, action and Vampires. That combination will help anyone grab on to the book and not put it down until you are done. The only negative is, I could have done without all the description of what the characters were wearing. For others that might be something they like to have as part of the book, possibly the younger crowd. So make sure you jot down the author's name and read this series.

Story is centered around Laney, she lives in a small town in California. She meets Oliver, the good looking new person. The have instant chemistry. Of course love can never be so simple when it involves a boyfriend that well lets just say he is not a normal human being. Tune in the family and a bit of drama and you got a good story. The characters all involved in Laney are memorable and lovable. Stories like Laney take you back to when you were 18 and in love, of course I didn't have the sexy Vampire in High School.
