Randall Stewart’s trying to get through medical school and, after losing his part-time job, doesn’t have enough money left over to eat. Unable to find another job, his roommate Darren suggests a way to help him earn some badly needed cash. The next night Randall’s introduced to one of the toughest and most powerful vampires in town. He doesn’t know what to expect…but it certainly isn’t to become Sasha’s exclusive blood donor. And falling in love never entered his mind. Becoming part of the vampire world changes Randall’s life forever and if he’s not careful, it could end his life too. 

Blood Signs is the first release in Amber Kell’s new series, Blood, Moon and Sun. I’m a big fan of vampire books and I found this blurb intriguing, so I looked forward to reading it and wasn’t disappointed once I got my hands on it.   

It’s a fun and entertaining story that I was able to zip through easily in one sitting.  Both Randall and Sasha are appealing and fairly well rounded for a story of a mere 25K.  There are numerous secondary characters to add interest and help propel the story forward. I especially enjoyed Liam and Dustin. The sex between sweet and likable Randall and possessive and dominant Sasha is sizzling hot, but it doesn’t take over the story. There are enough details of vampire society and bonding with their mates to make Sasha’s actions understandable. Finally the villain…Sasha’s older brother, Ustin. This vampire could have been much more evil, but he never really pulled it off and Randall’s rescue happened too easily.  

There are several plot threads left dangling and a few new ones added at the end but considering that this is apparently an ongoing storyline featuring Randall and Sasha I’m not surprised or upset. I look forward to reading the next book in the series, Samhain's Kiss.
