A lover of vampire novels, I always enjoy a new twist on the mythology or the circumstances, and Because The Night gives me that with a band of undead rock stars that rule Vegas in more ways than one. I love Callie, an 18 year old girl who makes 18 year old mistakes. THIS IS CRUCIAL TO ME. She's REAL, makes bad choices, does bad things, while not being bad herself. She's a regular girl, who I love but one that makes choices I hate sometimes. The paranormal world needs this girl. But it isn't Callie that makes me love this book. It's Tristan. Tristan is a junkie, an egotist,a spoiled brat with something to prove. He's the personification of sex wrapped up in a bad boy vampire body. You want to make him a good boy, but not really. I love his sarcasm, his ability to be good, but his choices to be dirty. He's unique, unapologetic, and a guilty pleasure like none other. Kristen Strassel gives us a blend of Queen of the Damned and the Motley Crue biography with this novel, and it could not be more satisfying. Pick this up for a book that doesn't pull punches.

I am not the biggest fan of this particular genre, but this book had me mesmerised. It is so incredibly well written, and the characters so interesting, that you cannot put it down until finished. Looking forward to he next booj!

What do you get when you take sex, drugs, rock & roll, and Las Vegas and combine it with some smexy as sin Vampires?  A tale that will keep you hooked and leave you dying for more (pun intended).   While Strassel’s vampires are definitely recognizable as just that, vampires, they are definitely very unique.  I really appreciated the twists that she threw in and how well it was developed throughout the story.  Although some of the situations in the novel were far removed from reality Strassel developed them in such a manner that you could easily see the possibilities and how it could easily happen.  The love scenes were definitely unique but fit perfectly in the storyline.  The story itself never lagged, nor did it jump forwards at any point in time.  It was a solidly developed storyline, leading you further into the series that kept me wholly captivated throughout.   Having met the main characters in the prequel to the series it’s very easy to see why they interact with each other the way that they do.  The prequel gave a unique inside look at their relationship.  That said, you also get to know the characters quite well in this instalment all on its own.  I felt for the male lead.  You could see how he ended up in the situation he was in.  It was also easy to see how the female lead got herself in the predicaments that she caused for herself based on her background.  Some of the secondary characters were absolutely brilliant.  I loved them.  Others were completely aggravating.  Strassel definitely created a well-balanced cast with this one.  I don’t think that there was a single character that I didn’t have feelings about, one way or the other.  Strassel went the extra mile with her characters, showing the differences and similarities between the humans and vampires in the novel.   I am quite impressed with this author at this point.  I can’t wait to continue on with the series & would definitely read other works by this author.  My final thoughts on this one (and a warning for those who have an issue with this type of thing)?  Holy cliffhanger batman! Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.

All I can say is wow, I’m not sure any words could do this book justice. Yes, there’s a vampire love story, but throw in the sex, blood & rock n’ roll and it transforms it into darker, gripping read. By the end of the book I loved all the main characters, though Tristen did take a little longer to warm up to. Callie has no idea what she is truly getting herself into during her vacation, but one thing leads to another and she finds herself in love with one guy but drawn to another. Naïve and blinded by bloodlust, her world spirals out of control and becomes something completely different. Literally, from start to finish, I couldn’t stop turning the pages and was up late into the night just to read a few more chapters. Nothing was predictable, and the very last few sentences couldn’t have been more shocking – now I’m desperate for the next book in the series. I received an e-copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
