Book Review: Kill Me

Three days ago, Claire was a wife, a mother, and very much alive… then the music called for her.

Claire has one goal for the conference— to land a few whales so that her boss will give her a badly needed raise. She pitches and prays while courting the music industry elite until her plans are derailed by hotness-in-high-heels.

Bette is at the conference on a mission—to find a human with untapped talents that she can mold and control. Bette uses her cursed violin to lure Claire in with a haunting song, which unravels Claire’s life as her new talents emerge. To make matters worse, Claire is attracted to two unlikely people— Bette and her hunky associate, Gregor. Both can light Claire’s fire, but is either of them the only one?

Unfortunately for Claire, life isn’t all song lyrics and seduction. Tied to darkness by blood and power, Claire must harness her abilities if she has any hope of returning home to her daughter and regaining her former life… if that’s what she really wants.

KILL ME is a fast and enjoyable read written in first person from Claire’s perspective.  Her goal at this conference is to sign up lots of clients and then go home to her daughter and dead beat husband.  That is until she met Bette.  Then her world gets turned sideways.

Ms. Owens has done a wonderful job with her characters.  It is all too easy emphasize with Claire and her worries about paying her bills.  Bette is a mixture of sultriness and feminine softness.  And the men that she meets are hot and well developed.  As busy and fast paced as this story is, it is most definitely the characters that make this tale so enjoyable.

I did find a few editing errors when I was reading and one did pull me out of the story for a minute.  But overall, they didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the story.

I do recommend this book to vampire lovers looking for something different.

I rate this book a 3.3.

**I received this book at no charge in exchange for a fair and honest review.  No monies have or will exchange hands.
