Bittersweet Blood 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers.
 Bittersweet Blood (The Order, #1)   
4 of 5 stars false 
 Tara Collins just wants to be normal. Everyone else wants her dead.
Tara’s eccentric aunt raised her to be fearful of the world and follow the rules. But after her aunt’s death, Tara is ready to take control and experience life for the first time. But she quickly discovers that everything she’s been told is a web of lies. Determined to solve the mystery of who she is truly, she hires private investigator to help her uncover the truth.
Christian Roth is more than your average PI. A vampire and ex-demon hunter, Christian lives among the humans, trying to be “normal.” But recently, things seem to be falling apart. There’s a crazed demon hell-bent on revenge hunting him down, and a fae assassin on the loose with an unknown target. And the Order he abandoned desperately needs his help.
As the secrets of Tara’s past collide with the problems in Christian’s present, she finds herself fighting her attraction to the dark and mysterious investigator. Falling in love does not fit into her plans at all, but Tara soon learns that some rules are meant to be broken. 


****NetGalley provided me with a copy of this book for my honest review****

Tara has lived a sheltered life, her aunt kept her away from the world and now that her aunt has died she wants to know what and who she is. She hires private investigator Christian Roth; she doesn't know that he is a vampire. Christian left the Order and is trying to live as normal life as he can, but demons are killing his friends the fae need his help finding something, the Order wants him back and he now he wants Tara. The two of them grow close trying to find out what she really is and Tara has to decide if having a normal life is really what she wants. Christian has to decide what he is willing to risk to keep Tara safe. Tara was an interesting heroine; she was very innocent, smart and had a backbone. I liked how the author didn't make her a weak woman; she stood up for herself and fought for her loved ones. Her innocence actually added a certain charm to the mix that softened the edges without making Tara annoyingly ignorant. Christian oh how I loved the big bad vampire with a soft heart. The plot line was not the most original, girl meets boy has no idea she is something "other," boy likes girl helps her out. The two of them fight their attraction, there is conflict and angst. However, the author does write a very entertaining story, the world building is done very well. I liked the war between the demons and fae that is being fought on earth; it added an interesting little twist to the story. The sex scenes in the book were good, not to graphic and not boring. I really liked this book it was an entertaining read and I am interested in seeing where the series will be going.
