Not your run of the mill vampire love story I received an advance reader edition of this book from Kensington Books via Net Galley for the purpose of providing an honest review. 4 Stars This book was different. I enjoy reading books with vampires, werewolves, ghosts, witches, and really anything that falls into the paranormal realm. When a saw this book on Net Galley, I instantly requested it because I was ready for a vampire story. I really expected a run of the mill vampire love story based on the cover and I was okay with that. What I got was a unique take on vampires in a many layered story. Danika is a vampire lord in the Chicago area. She is the only female vampire lord in the entire country and she heads the company that produces Savor, a bottled blood drink. When humans are found and captured, they are quickly sold into slavery. Mason was with a group of humans out foraging when he was captured. Danika buys Mason at auction to be her protector. It becomes obvious early on that Mason is not just human but something more. He feels very protective of Danika and takes his role very seriously. Both Danika and Mason are hesitant to act on their feelings towards each other but eventually come together. This book had some problems. My biggest problem is that Danika purchased Mason. How could Mason ever feel anything towards the person who paid for him and was responsible for his captivity. I just don't see how you overcome the fact that Danika literally OWNS Mason. To be honest I just kind of pushed it aside in my head because the world and society was so different. Danika also starts to realize that there may be other ways to do things by the end of the book. I thought that the world building was great. It is a very different take on the vampire world and I thought it was done well. The writing was solid. There was enough mystery in the story to keep me going. I was dying to know what Mason really was and also who wanted to harm Danika. The villains were the kind that I love to hate. Overall, I thought it was a solid story. I would recommend this book to others that enjoy a different take on vampires. These vampire see humans as a commodity so this is not the typical romantic vampire world that is often popular. This is the first book by Rebekah Graniere that I have read and I do plan to continue with this series.

Ok so I have read some of the other reviews on this book and I see some people have a hard time figuring out how to compare this book to the other works of art out there. Personally I just love to read so I go with the flow, but if I had to put it into a catergory I would say Underworld meets Daybreak. I recieved this book as an ARC from netgalley for my honest review. This book to me started a little slow but when you get pass the first ten pages its non stop suspense over what will, may or could happen. The chemistry between Danika and Mason was undeniable. Danika must uphold herself to a certain standard and that standard does not include her wanting to mate with a slave that she purchased for a crazy amount of money. Mason knows that he wants to mate with Danika but for an unknown reason (no spoilers from me!) he has to deny the attraction to her. The sexual tension was mind blowing and when they finally gave in it was explosive! Then the story gets intense because now the relationship is no longer slave and owner its man and woman, protected and protector, lover and loved. I felt like separate they were strong but together they were unbeatable. One thing I will say is I spent the whole book trying to figure out what paranormal creature or human hybrid Mason was and I swore I figured it out, but believe me when I say you will be very surprised. Goodness knows I was. Very good read, don't give up on it and you will be very satisfied. Great job Rebekah R. Ganiere definitely nothing else out there like this. Danika Chekov is the only female Vampire Lord in America. Her mother and father have died and left the clan in her hands. Danika must prove to her Uncle and the other Vampire Lords that she has what it takes to keep everything under control Mason is captured and sold as a human guardian slave to protect Danika. He cant help but want more from Danika and knows that he must stay away from her or create a situation that he knows Danika does not need at this time. Together Danika and Mason work together to try and figure who is creating trouble in her land. But can they battle their hearts and the Vampires who would do anything to keep them apart?

Fist of all, I am a lifelong lover of vampire books. I have been reading them for at least 45 years, so it's hard to find new ones to love. Did I love this book? In some ways, I did and in others ways, I didn't. But, I agree with some of the other reviewers that I had a hard time following the story. Vampires, vampyrs, vamps, half vampires? I really never figured out what the difference was between all of these. What was the outbreak that caused the Vampires to be in power and the humans to be their slaves? Why are the humans so complacent and willing to be slaves to the Vampires? These are just a few of the problems that I had with the book. I also agree that it took most of the book before you find out what Mason really is (and when I found out, I couldn't imagine loving him!). The Beast within Mason that is hinted at from the beginning is much worse than I imagined. I won't repeat the blurb for the book since that is already available for the potential reader. If you love sexy vampire novels, give this one a chance. It was enjoyable, entertaining, well-written and memorable.

Boy, the chemistry in this book was hot! That was the first thing I noticed about this book. I loved how Danika and Mason were really drawn together from the beginning. Along with great writing, I also loved how the plot progressed, and one thing I love when it happens: I didn’t see parts of the end coming. I did figure out one of the bad buys, but one really, really surprised me. However, I had a hard time understanding the differences between Vampires, vamps, vampyrs, etc., and to be honest, I’m still not sure. And, sometimes, I was unsure of how and when the society has evolved to how it was now, and the timeline for Danica taking over the coven. But, I was able to push that all aside to really enjoy this unique vampire world. I am eager to read the next one to see what Danica, Mason, William, et al are going to be up to next. If you like something new and unique (and vampires!), give this one a try! Highly recommend! I was provided the e-book which I voluntarily reviewed.

If I could give this book 10 stars I would. Rebekah has an awesome story-line and a devilish thick plot. It is actually my first book by Rebekah but I see many, many more in my reading future and a new Author to follow. Mason is a man of many secrets one that he has kept hidden for 500 years. During this time he has placed himself within the human population and has stayed hidden from all vampires. That is until he was caught by the slavers. As of the death of her parents Danika was handed over her fathers very successful business witch produced Savor a synthetic drink to replace blood donors as the humans have all but disappeared. Danika had also replaced her father as the Lord over the Chicago Clan. Danika had gone to the auction house to preview the slaves coming up for auction. Through a strategic business deal Danika was able to get Lord Garon to pull his $10 Million bid and Danika was able to purchase Mason, But she had made any enemy of Lord Garon. Danika had sent Mason to the Elite Guards for training, as she needed him for her personal guard. She had not told anyone that someone was trying to kill her. When Mason was brought to Danika neither of the could explain nor fight the attraction they had for each other. Mason was stressed out to the max. He knew Danika was his mate and he would do anything to protect her even if it cost him his life. And when he did everything would explode. Rebekah has been building her story-line steadily and the plot that's continuing to thicken is so amazing. There is so much sexual tension and fear. You can feel it pressing in your neck, shoulders and back. It is no longer just a story but something your apart of. Rebekah Has pulled the reader right into her world. My advice: you must pick up a copy. I left out so much violence, passion and death. But you know not how, why or who? I was given a copy for an honest review.

What a new and exciting look into a futuristic world. It is run by Vampires and what is left of the human species are slaves. This book is well written. The author did an excellent job in creating this world with fascinating details that make you feel like the world could exist. Danika and Mason are hot, steamy and strong. There attraction is unique and won’t be denied. I really enjoyed this story and can’t wait to see what becomes of this couple and their world. I would say it is a must read if you like a strong female heroine who just happens to be a vampire or if you enjoy a storyline that you just can’t seem to put down until you have completed it. Than this is the one!!

I really enjoyed reading this book. As I don't like to give spoilers I'm only going to touch on what I consider highlights. One, this is not your ordinary vampire book, the closest I can describe the background of the book is that vampires now are rulers and humans (what is left of them) are either slaves or on the run. This story also touches on prejudice not only between races but that old one, sexism. The story includes strong sexual attraction between a ruling female vampire, Danika, and a slave, Mason, she purchases to be trained as a guardian. She is beautiful and he is not only handsome but is imposing in size and strength. Someone is out to harm her and in trying to protect her Mason exposes a long held secret. Find out if that secret will keep them apart and maybe even destroy what's left of this new world. The only reason it took me several days to finish this fascinating story is that I had out of town family visiting and could only read when everyone had gone to bed; I tried but sleep kept creeping up on me. The book was worth the wait. I highly recommend this book to all who love a really good paranormal story.

She wants security. He wants freedom. Together their love could destroy the world. Ten years after the outbreak of the V2000 virus turns the majority of humans into a mutated Vampire sub-species, the last remaining true humans are the world's hottest commodity. In this new world, it's The Society that rules. Being the only female Vampire Lord in America isn't easy. Being thrust into the role of CEO is even harder. Danika Chekov refuses to let her father's legacy die. She’s resolved to keep everything under her tight control. But after she's almost killed, she’s forced to purchase a human guardian. Mason is human, or so the Vampires think. He’s determined to protect his secret, but Lord Danika buys him before he can make his escape. Their passion for each other threatens everything they want most. And when Mason’s true nature is exposed, the results could be devastating. Review: I really liked this story, I thought is was cleverly thought out and I liked the whole Vampire/Dsytopian feel to the book. To me the story is unique in that the majority of beings still left on the planet are vampires and their mutations.  Where the few remaining humans are hunted to become slaves for the vampires.  I thought the story had has a lot going for it besides the premise, it has action, danger, a mystery and romance.   I thought Danika and Mason were very believable as a couple and the chemistry between them was a palpable thing.  I kept wondering what Mason was going to be through most of the story and for me that not knowing what exactly he is made him more intriguing and added depth to his character.  Danika is a smart, strong vampire, but I liked that she had a tender side.  The vampires are written with dimension and not just flat characterizations. Now, it says it is the first in the Society series so I cannot wait to see what else happens in this world. 4.25Stars
