Just Finished Between A Vamp And A Hard Place By Jessica Sims

BETWEEN A VAMP AND A HARD PLACE (Pocket Books; December 29, 2015; $7.99) by Jessica Sims, a sexy paranormal romance in the wickedly funny spirit of bestselling authors Kerrelyn Sparks and Molly Harper which features an estate broker and a 600-year-old vampire out for revenge

Lindsey Hughes loves antiques and couldn’t be happier to make a living in the estate sale business. Hughes loves antiques and couldn’t be happier to make a living in the estate sale business. But when her assistant accidentally buys an entire estate without her approval, Lindsey is forced to clean up the mess herself.

Lindsey travels to the newly purchased, age-old house in Venice, Italy, and soon discovers more than she (never) bargained for. While digging through the hoarder’s trove that fills every floor, she finds a secret staircase behind a wall that leads to a strange coffin…with an even stranger inhabitant.

Vampire Rand FitzWulf has been in his coffin for 600 years. But now that he’s awake, he’s ravenous, and there’s a delicious-smelling woman with a rare blood type in his basement. Luckily, Lindsey has more to offer than blood: she agrees to travel throughout Europe with Rand to help him get revenge on the one who turned him. But as the unlikely pair grows closer, will the billionaire vampire be overtaken by his thirst for blood—or his thirst for love?

The 411:

Well, this was a great way to end 2015 and start a new year. Vampire love never grows old in my eyes and there is no pun intended. I LOVE IT!

Lindsey and her partner/friend Gemma head over to Italy to hopefully grab some amazing antiques. Lindsey isn't sure this will be worth the trip, time or expense until she stumbles upon a secret room downstairs that is stocked full of amazing pieces that will undoubtedly make everything quite worth this trip including a coffin that contains a very very old vampire who wants to find out who staked him. Lindsey didn't plan on becoming a food source, traipsing all over Venice or falling for a vampire but since meeting Rand, her life will never be the same. 

I really really enjoyed the first part of the book with Gemma and Lindsey. I thoroughly enjoyed Rand trying to wrap his head around all the modern day things like showers, clean hair, door knobs and cell phones to name a few. My absolute favorite character is Gemma who thankfully was included in the traipsing thanks to text messaging. All in all a fun book I will be looking for more Jessica Sims books.
