Lacey was pretty happy with her current leisure existence despite the few complaints here and there. Living on her own rocked her socks. However, while coming home from work one night and based on sheer awful luck, she witnessed a disturbing attack on a young and rather eye-catching youth. Thinking the worse was over she continued to go about her daily business. That is, until the boy she saw sprawled out on the bloody street shows up pressed against her balcony window. Obviously something is wrong. This boy should be dead. He is dead. So why then is he stalking her, in the nude? Does he want to start his own army of creatures of the night or does he feel some kind of enticement to her that is unexplainable? Lacey will soon come to ?nd that not all legendary stories are true, when it comes to being involved with a Vampire.

I really, really enjoyed this book! It was different from the other urban PNR I have been reading. It was not predictable and it took me in directions that I wasn't expecting. I really felt a connection between Kevin and Lacey. It was fun, cute and tender. I liked how Kevin tried so hard to do all things for Lacey, even when she didn't know what it was costing him. He took such great care of her and wanted to provide for her. I kept expecting a bigger development with the other guy, Tristan, but it didn't materialize quite like I thought. Then I thought her best friend and Tristan had something going on behind her back, but that didn't happen either...I will admit to hating some of the dialogue like "oop", but I loved the book overall. I liked the change in Lacey's relationship with her mother...I was glad that her mother wasn't hurt because that was my expectation(LOL). At the end, it looked like Lacey was learning her own strengths now, so I look forward to learning more about her powers and also more about her journey with Kevin.
For the most part, Lacey is content with her ordinary, routine life; however, all sense of ordinary and routine soon flies out the window when she witnesses a gruesome attack on her way home from work one night...the most disturbing aspect of the incident? Not the attack itself, but rather the fact that the victim - beaten, bloodied, and all - later shows up at her place. From the extent of his injuries, he should be dead - but he clearly isn't - leaving Lacey to wonder exactly what his intentions for her truly are... Creatively crafted, Crimson Stained is not your typical vampire tale. In imaginative fashion, author Quinn Keitt successfully breathes new life into what has become a rather stale, predictable genre, skillfully merging vivid, realistic characters with a mercurial - if not quirky - central plotline. In so doing, she convincingly draws the reader into a suspense-filled, tortuous tale with so many unexpected twists and turns that you can't help turning each new page in rapt anticipation of the next shocking surprise to come. Unapologetically brazen and thoroughly entertaining, Crimson Stained is sure to change what you think you know about the world of vampires. An enjoyable read. Chelsea Perry Apex Reviews
Where to start: Through part of reading this book I kept wondering do I like this or not? That was the million-dollar question. I kept reading through it and realized I did like it, not as well as some books but it was a very different and disturbing take on a vampire story! For the things I didn't like: I got tired of all the repetitive use of "hey girl, hey girl, hey" and "Ew"! I wished the reader would have gotten to know more about the character of Kevin, basically he just came in out of no where, which I know the writer wanted it like that but for me a little more background would have been good! The love story of Lacey and Kevin was a bit disturbing and needy. The things I liked about this story: The story itself was so totally different from your sugar cookie type vampire love story! This was gritty and warped and disturbing in so many different ways, but I found I actually liked it after awhile, only because it was different from what I typically read with vampire love stories. The killing of (will not say so not to spoil anything) just totally blew me away and came out of nowhere which was really good because I was shocked and not expecting it! This author told a disturbing tale of a love story in a different way than most! She did not glamorize vampires as most books are and I found that very refreshing! I would read her works again just to see how the next book was. If you're looking for a different type of vampire story, for the price you should try this one out. If your looking for glamorous vampires your in for a rude awakening! This has disturbing, possessiveness, and very needy love story in it, even with that being said, because of how it was written it actually worked. With the character of Lacey, you got to know her on an emotional level and could identify with her on how she felt. I mean we all felt like her sometime in our lives when we were younger. The relationship she had with her parents was well written and sad, but you were so excited when her mother finally comes to visit. As stated before, it was a change of pace that I welcomed after getting into the story.
