This book has some great details and is a suspense/thriller/paranormal book, which I truly enjoyed. It has a great paranormal twist that I have not read before. Where a human can be Linked to a vampire (their souls link), then that vampire starts to gain their humanity back. That is a cool concept and not one I had read about before. The story was written very well, and the ending was pretty unexpected for me, had my jaw hanging open, lol. There are a few parts that could have done with some fewer details, but that’s still better than not enough. The whole gangsters are vampires is also a new one for me, but very interesting, and the plot was fast paced and had lots of suspense, so you didn’t want to stop reading. I liked the characters and really liked how the author brought them to life for me. I do not want to spoil anything, so won’t go into any real details, so do not worry, lol. I think most the ladies out there will really like Charlie Cross, he has that Bad boy vibe and is a vampire too. Yeah, it’s a thrill to read. If you would like to read a vampire tale that is different, and you like suspense and thrillers, with some paranormal romance too, you will love this. I highly recommend it, and give it 4 ½ out of 5 stars . I was provided a copy of this book for my honest review.

Linked was a fast paced story that grabs you right from the start and sinks its fangs into you until you have devoured the story whole! Daphne gets a surprise when she meets one of her students father. Charlie is dropped dead sexy, dangerous, and an Alpha to the core. Right from the beginning he sees Daphne as something he wants to claim and possess, but Daphne is not so eager due to circumstances revolving around him. Things heat up between them and Daphne starts to learn more about who and what Charlie is. When their souls become linked emotion and passion become more intense, which is really saying something because they were intense before. Enter Heathcliff. Healthcliff is an old friend of Charlie and becomes interested in Daphne as well. While Charlie is away on business, sparks fly between these two. Daphne is now faced with two very sexy, very dominant vampires who want her. She must decide what she wants to do before he heart gets shattered in the process. The intensity, eroticism, passion, and suspense is so captivating right from the beginning. The love triangle is just, Wow. A lot of testosterone there. This story will seduce you, arouse you, entice you, and take in deep into a world full of darkness, soul mates, and incredible passion. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. Daphne Foster is a high school substitute teacher. She’s sweet, innocent and just starting out in life. Her very first parent teacher meeting turns her extremely anxious and nervous. It only gets worse when her expected parent turns out not to be Michael’s mother, but his drop dead gorgeous father, Charlie Cross. The attraction for both of them is instant. Unfortunately, his family’s organized crime, current marriage, and frequent disappearances are exceedingly disturbing. A charity fundraiser brings Heathcliff Vanderpool into the picture. Their connection is amazing. Their souls are linked but breaking up with Charlie is nearly impossible, he’ll stop at nothing to have her. How far will he go? This was an amazing novel that threw me for a loop. I’d never read anything from Ms. Serrano before, so I didn’t know what to expect. This was an action packed thrill ride, with lots of twists to keep you completely engrossed. It was one of the best vampire and werewolf novels I have read in a very long time. Daphne is a main character that is so easy to love. This was a fantastic book that you can easily get lost in, I love it! If you haven’t read anything by Judy Serrano, I strongly suggest you give her a try!

Judy Serrano pens "Linked" in a well written plot filled with action, plenty of twists/turns, vampires, werewolves and some steamy sex scenes. The authors characters were strong, believable, likable and what I really liked is they were "older" characters instead of your usual teens. I honestly can't wait for the next book in the series to find out what happens next. This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.

.Wow another great story. Judy Serrano is such a wonderful and talented story teller. There is not much she leaves out that don’t catch your attention. You have suspense, thriller, paranormal and romance all rolled into one. The idea of taking gangsters, and making them vampires, what and awesome combination. What I like the best was these were not your normal vampires that you read about or see in movies. And oh yes there were also werewolves and sabers you had to worry about as well. There was even one part of the book that brought a smile to my face, but not going to ruin it by telling you. You will just have to read the book and find out. But if you are a Judy Serrano fan you will understand what brought on my smile. I’m always sad when I reach the end of one of Judy’s stories. I don’t want it to end. You can’t help but get caught up in it all. You can’t help but fall in love with her characters. Her stories bring on so many different types of emotions. Watch out Laurell Hamilton and your Anita Blake series. Judy Serrano is in town and she has gangster vampires.
