Book Review: Vampire State Of Mind By Jane Lovering

Name: Vampire State Of Mind
Author: Jane Lovering
Publisher: Choc Lit Books

Summary: Jessica Grant knows vampires only too well. She runs the York Council tracker programme making sure that Otherworlders are all where they should be, keeps the filing in order and drinks far too much coffee. To Jess, vampires are annoying and arrogant and far too sexy for their own good, particularly her ex-colleague Sil, who’s now in charge of Otherworld York. But when a demon turns up and threatens not just Jess but the whole world order, she and Sil are forced to work together, and when Jess turns out to be the key to saving the world it puts a very different slant on their relationship. The stakes are high. They are also very, very pointy and Jess isn’t afraid to use them, even on the vampire that she’s rather afraid she’s falling in love with ...

Review: Firstly I want to apologise for my lack of reviews and posts. I have a few that need finishing and posting they will be done soon. I have also been unwell twice work has been manic and I was preparing for a holiday. I had started reading a few books but nothing was really grabbing me.

One day I got to work early and decided I needed a Starbucks fix when I noticed that Vampire State Of Mind was their pick of the week. So I downloaded my freebie and read the first few chapters rather quickly.

Jess is an easily loved character she goes between being a strong independent woman also into an emotional naive wreck. This book is addictive.
The sexual tension between Jess and Sil is apparent early on and it continues heavily into the end of the book.
There are so many twists and turns with a major one involving Jess and her history, a definite OMG moment and when the twists and turns start oh do they continue. I honestly believe if I'd read this on a day off and when I wasn't sick I could have easily devoured it in a day. I love how you also get part from Jess part from Sil and also just the story. It really does add to the description and the drama of the story.
Malfaire was a character I instantly didn't like and oh was I right to dislike him. Just when you feel like you know where the story is going BAM another major twist yet again about Jess. The pace of this book slows down to be descriptive then it speeds right back up.

I truly adore Jess and Sil they are both such stubborn characters but both are easily likeable.
I won't spoil the ending but I loved it. I could definitely read more about Sil and Jess but if this is just a stand alone book then I am a happy book worm. I really like Jane's writing I look forward to picking up another of her novels. If you're looking for a book to grab your attention and have you hooked from page one, then Vampire State Of Mind is a MUST!.
I look forward to devouring more books from Jane and Choc Lit, I also promise the reviews and posts will be coming back more regular.
