Review & Giveaway - Smash by Susan Child

by Susan Child

Genre: Erotic Paranormal Romance

Can a vampire and a human find love, or will the rules of his society tear them apart? 

When Melissa Waters attends the opening of Smash, a newly renovated nightclub, she meets a man who will change her life forever.

David thought his time with Melissa would just be a one-night stand, but he can't get the beautiful redhead off his mind. He wants more. But she's human. David's father, the king of the vampires, will never allow them to pursue a relationship. He will stop at nothing to ensure that his son mates with another vampire. When he abducts Melissa, David is in a race against time to locate her and save her life. 

Content Warning: contains graphic sex and explicit language


David got up from the bar and walked to the shadows so he could watch the beautiful redhead. He looked at her with a growing need to shelter her from the club. More importantly, what and who was in the club. He'd never felt this way before. What was it about this woman? She was human for gods' sake! Why did he feel this primal pull toward her?

He nearly smiled as she looked over her shoulder at the bar to find he was no longer there. At least he knew he wasn't the only one affected by what was between them. When she looked back to the man sitting at the table with her, David wanted it to be him that she was looking at. Was the guy her boyfriend? At the thought David felt a growl coming on…she was his.

His imagination ran wild as he started to picture his hands running through her shiny, wild red hair. How her head would tip up to look at him. Her mouth would part as her eyes closed, and he would lean over to have a taste of her neck. Slowly, his elongated fangs would draw softly over her pulse and she'd shudder, exposing her neck and giving him better access.

This is a short and enjoyable paranormal romance.  David is a vampire whose father is the king of vampires who rules with an iron fist.  David is instantly attracted to Melissa, a human.  David knows nothing can come of it but finds he is unable to forget her.  David is such a compassionate and protective man who has grown up in a family where his father terrorized them, especially his mother.  David vows to protect Melissa as well.  This tale is centered more on David and I found myself drawn into his life.  It felt a little rushed at times but I still enjoyed reading it.  It has romance, suspense and vampires! ~Booklover Sue

~About the Author~

When Susan was in high school she never really liked to read, but when she was a child she did. Go figure. It wasn't until after she graduated that she caught the reading bug. She had to go to a bookstore to sell off her textbooks and a particular book caught her eye. This book stood out from the other second-hand books because it had a pink cover. It was only a couple of dollars, so she thought Why not? But she couldn't quite bring herself to read her bargain book. It had a pink cover! 

Then, after it tormented her for three weeks, she finally picked it up and…could not put it down. She finished it in two days. 

After googling the author Susan found that she'd written a heap of books for Harlequin Mills & Boon as well as Single Titles. So of course Susan had to buy all her other books. And when she realised that there were other Mills & Boon authors out there, she just had to search out their books too. And she loved them! 

Susan got a ton of inspiration from those books. But the most important thing she realized was that she wanted to write those books too. She wanted to be a paranormal author! Because let's face it, who doesn't like things that go bump in the night?
