Book Review: "Moon Dance (Vampire for Hire #1)" by J.R. Rain

Moon Dance (Vampire for Hire #1)Moon Dance by J.R. Rain
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When I first got my Kindle, I picked up a lot of new vampire stories to read. This is one of those stories - a new author whom I've never read before.

The verdict?

Overall, I'm glad that I tried out "Moon Dance". I love the premise behind the story - Samantha Moon, a regular wife and mother, got attacked six years ago, turning her into a vampire. The story begins at a time of change - Sam suspects her husband is cheating on her, the regular grind of suburban life is getting to her, and a new, hunky client walks into her life. The story flows easily from one scene to another, with the author foreshadowing problems so that nothing seems out of left field.

The biggest downside of the story is that is seems written by a new author. Line by line, the story is grammatically correct - a pet peeve of mine. But the action moves too quickly. I wanted to learn more about Samantha Moon and Kingsley Fulcrum (her client). I wanted more interaction between Sam and her husband, more details about her relationship with her kids.

But despite the fast action, not only do I like this book, but I'm looking forward to Vampire for Hire, #2.
