Blood Type by K.A. Linde Review and Blitz


A startling new vision of paranormal romance: When a human ventures into the world of vampires—a decadent milieu of blood-bonds and betrayal—she discovers that not all is what it seems.

For Reyna Carpenter, giving up her body isn’t a choice. It’s survival.

In a civilization laid waste by poverty and desperation, Reyna accepts a high-paying position with the wealthy and hungry vampire elite. Her new job is as the live-in blood escort for the intimidating, demanding, and devilishly handsome Beckham Anderson. He’s everything she expected from a vampire, except for one thing—he won’t feed off her.

Reyna soon discovers that behind Beckham’s brooding, wicked façade lies a unique and complex man. And that, in a dark and divided world, she is more valuable than she ever would have believed.

For with each passing night, Reyna can’t shake the sensation that it’s Beckham who’s afraid of her.

Note: Reyna and Beckham’s story continues in Blood Match.



This review is for an ARC and is my unbiased, honest opinion.

WOW!!!! I could not put this book down!!!! I think I read 68% in the first sitting. I took very few breaks to rest my eyes. I ended up putting the book down around 11 or 12 at night. My eyes betrayed me and wouldn’t let me finish the book….traitors. The next morning, I woke up bright and early…..keep in mind that I am NOT a morning person…..and finished reading. Gah…it was so good!!! I really enjoyed diving back into the paranormal romance world. It’s been so long since I’ve read one. I adore this genre and hoping it makes a come back like everyone is predicting.

It’s really hard to express my feelings on this one without giving anything away. I really enjoyed Beckham’s character. I could just see all the reasons for him going back and forth with his feelings. There was just something about Reyna that he couldn’t resist.

As far as Reyna goes…..this girl attracted trouble like nobody’s business. I think Reyna made some really stupid choices and decisions. It’s like she didn’t think past the initial decision into what could go wrong. She just wanted to do whatever she wanted and throw caution to the wind. I found myself wanting to slap some sense into her several times.

I liked the world building in this story. It was fun to get back into a vampire world and learn about this breed of vampires. I will say I wished we got to know more about the powers this world of vampires had. Not much was said as far as their abilities and disadvantages. I also didn’t care for a certain scene involving the Vault. When you get there, you’ll understand. As far as my rating goes, I’m going with 4.5 rounding up to a 5. Just a few minor things that I wish were different. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and cannot wait to continue on with this series.

That was the moment Beckham appeared in the doorway like a storm cloud.

Reyna straightened in her seat at the expression on his face. He walked across the room like a tightly coiled spring ready to explode.

“Ah Beckham, there you are,” Harrington said.

“Excuse me, William. I need to speak with Reyna. Alone.”

She hastened out of her seat and followed him around the corner. He tugged her straight through the kitchens, out the back door, down a corridor, and into a dead end. Then her back was slammed against the brick wall. His fist connected with the wall behind her, and she felt the wall shudder. Debris floated onto her shoulders.

“You left,” he growled.

“I . . .”

“No.” He pressed his finger to her lips roughly. She stopped breathing and just stared up into his eyes as dark as night. Her body trembled under the feral stare. “You left without me.”

The silence was weighted. All she could do was sit with their bodies nearly touching. His finger on her mouth. Her mind wandering to hellacious places.

“You are my subject. Can you imagine what it was like when I found you missing? When you turned up with three of my kind?” She shook her head minutely. He bared his teeth to her, and she shrank back. “These are meant to drink your blood. To drink you dry until there is nothing left of your body but a dry corpse. We are killers. We don’t hesitate. Just because we’re wearing suits and seem more like you . . . does not mean we are like you. We are not like you. They especially are not like you. The only way you get to the top of Visage is to be fucking ruthless, Reyna. Do you understand?”

“You’re . . . scaring me,” she whispered.
