#BookReview – “Yvette’s Haven” by Tina Folsom


Blurb

After being kidnapped by a vampire hunter, vampire bodyguard Yvette's first instinct is to kill the bastard. But before she gets the chance, she realizes that he was double-crossed by the witch he was working for and now is in as much danger as she is. 

To get his brother out of trouble, bounty hunter / vampire slayer Haven has to deliver the young actress Kimberly to a witch. Unfortunately, she's protected by the very creature he hates most: a vampire. 

As Yvette and Haven try to escape their prison and rescue the actress and Haven's brother, will their natural hatred for each other keep them apart or is the passion that bubbles up between them strong enough for them to dare risk their lives to defeat the witch from harnessing the greatest power of all?


Review


In book 4 of the Scanguard Vampries series, Yvette is the only female vampire in the Scanguards inner circle. Since all her friends and colleagues are men, she feels she has to always be tough and never show her feminine side, or she’ll lose her friends’ respect and her respect in herself. After a betrayal in her human life, it’s hard for her to express love, and she doesn’t think any man will want her for more than a quick lay.
Haven is a bounty hunter and vampire slayer. Though his mother was a witch, Haven and his two younger siblings didn’t inherit any of her power. After an evil witch kidnaps his brother Wesley, Haven has to do a job for the witch in order to free Wesley. The job? Kidnap a young actress and deliver her to the witch. Unfortunately for him, Yvette just happens to be the actress’s bodyguard.
Yvette and Haven both want each other, but as a vampire and as a hunter, they also hate each other. Even though Yvette is clearly the stronger of the two, the mutual respect between her and Haven is strong. He doesn’t treat her like a damsel or feel inferior to her, and she doesn’t treat him like a wimp. They think of each other as equals and work as a team.
The rest of the Scanguards play a large role in this book as in the previous ones. While Yvette and her unlikely allies fight on one front, her vampire friends fight on the other. When they all join forces, the final battle is awesome.
This book is much faster paced but shorter in word count/page length from the others I’ve read in the series. There are less sex scenes, but the scenes are still hot. It’s not often when a book surprises me, but I loved the twist at the end of this one. I’m always happy when I’m shocked in a good way.
The book is fairly well edited, so I was able to overlook a few stray typos.
4 Stars
