Review----The Vampire and The Virgin

The Vampire and the Virgin (Love at Stake, Book 8)  
What's it about (taken from amazon)
Olivia's packing list:
1. Sunscreen
2. Bathing suit
3. Flip-flops
FBI psychologist Olivia Sotiris was looking for a cool ocean breeze, sand between her toes, and a break from her crazy, chaotic, and sometimes all-too-dangerous life. But when she escaped to the small Greek island of Patmos, all she got were meddling grandmothers trying to marry her off. Can't they see that none of the men around interests her—except Robby MacKay?
Robby's packing list:
1. Synthetic blood
2. More synthetic blood
3. Jogging clothes
(even vamps have to stay in shape!)
Robby needs to cool off, too, since all he can think about is revenge on the Malcontent bloodsuckers who once held him captive—but then he meets Olivia, the beauty with wild curls and a tempting smile. When a deadly criminal from a case back home tracks her down, Robby will have to save her life—along with giving her a first time she'll never forget . . .

What did i think:
To be honest....i first read it for the title. As i said in my Its Monday post, sometimes us women are just as bad as men. I see the word virgin and was ready to see the vamp get with the virgin! Then after reading what it was about, i knew i was hooked into reading this book. 

I liked it. I had read another book by Kerrelyn Sparks probably two years ago when i went through my huge paranormal reading stage. Every now and then i pick another one up now. 

In some ways, Olivia seems just a little to easy, seeing as she is a 24 year old virgin, but maybe she was just ready to give it up. She is not someone who easily trust anyone, and even in the time she finally was intimate with Robby, she didn't fully trust him. 

Robby is a vampire who was sent on vacation due to being kidnapped are terrorized by the bad vampire, the Meloncomets.  He is filled with anger but through loving Olivia, he heals.

The book was good. It was a fairly quick read. There was mystery in it and the suspense held well. I read the e-book version to this.
