Overview

After Detective Kerry Harrison's partner dies, she is paired with Ethan James who is both good-looking and infuriating. They are assigned to a murder case in which Kerry and Ethan disagree about the guilt of the suspect. Further research into the case causes them to find that there have been similar murders in other places and that the suspects are all members of a secret club. Kerry finds out that Ethan not only knows most of the suspects, but also has knowledge of the club. Their partnership and friendship is tested when Kerry learns the true nature of the club... and Ethan's involvement.

Excerpt:

From her position, she could see some of the couples from a pretty clear angle and suddenly, she saw the man closest to her pull back a little from his partner’s neck and there was a gleam of white sharp teeth reflected in the dim light. She drew a sharp breath as she saw, almost in slow motion, the man’s teeth get closer to the woman’s neck, and at that moment he sunk those teeth into her neck. She looked around at all the other couples and she saw teeth embedded in necks, shoulders, arms, and wrists. All around her there were moans and sighs of pleasure. It was like being in a nightmare orgy and she was shaking all over with terror at what she was witnessing. This couldn’t be happening! It wasn’t real. Maybe there had been drugs in the punch and she was hallucinating. This just couldn’t be true.
What had Ethan brought her into?

After losing her longtime partner, Detective Kerry Harrison is handed a new murder case and a new partner. The case seems cut and dry but Detective Ethan James is encouraging her to keep an opened mind. The murderer seems intent on framing wealthy single men. Men who belong to a very exclusive club. Kerry knows that Ethan is keeping something vital regarding the case from her. She has no idea just how big the secret is until he takes her to the club. Club Blood is a quick read, and a completely different take on the vampire myth. I love the entrance into Club Blood!! Ethan and Kelly are suited to each other and I really liked how after Kerry's week off, she had thought so much about everything that she was ready to face her own feelings for Ethan rather than run away from them. Each vampire book I have read by Lauralynn Elliott has a unique twist and I enjoy every one of them. I'm giving Club Blood 4 stars (I know Club Blood is a novella, but I would've loved it to be longer).

Club Blood by Lauralynn Elliott A murder seems cut and dried to Detective Kelly Harrison. Her new partner, the extremely handsome Detective Ethan James, suggested she look at the case with an open mind. She had trouble looking at anything but him, he was perfection. It seems her new mysterious partner knows more than what he’s saying, and she doesn’t like that he’s holding back secrets. When the truth is revealed, however, Kelly needs to stop and take a good look at her life and decide which path to follow. This story is told from Kelly’s point of view only. This is a novella with a really good story line, just not as polished as the author’s books that were written after this first one. Lauralynn Elliott does not pretty up her vampires and their nature as many books do, and yet they are characters that will grab your heart. **Mild sensual content

Buy the other Club Blood listed. The other one is the same price and is the entire story.

I really couldn't get into this book at all and I love paranormal fantasy vampire stuff. Part of the problem was that there didn't seem to be enough descriptive words used so I was unable to "see" the story happening. Also, there was not much detail about the characters' jobs and what there was, wasn't very realistic. If you are going to write a police/detective novel or have that career be an important part of the story, you need to have a lot more detail. I felt that any occupation could have been substituted because of the lack of substance. I don't mean this to be negative, but download a sample before buying this. I wish I had; I wouldn't have bought the book.

I love when an author creates a new twist on an old idea. This story was easy to follow and I couldn't wait to see what happened.
