They crave my blood.

The biggest secret of all?

"Ginna S

New twist on a tried and true genre

Hunters and Vampires are enemies, right? That's how it's supposed to be.

Not in R Sullin's world, where most vampires want to live peacefully, in secret in a world where they would be hunted if there true nature was exposed. But that secrecy is endangered by monstrous creatures. Only a secret line of human women, known as Hunters, stand between the monsters and the destruction of vampires and humans alike. If a powerful 2000 year old vampire king and a new untrained hunter can find a way to work together there may yet be hope. Well paced, with despicable monsters, unexpected evil and characters you can root for this is a very entertaining read leaving you waiting for the next book...

A stirring tale about a 21-year-old hunter and a centuries-old vampire. Ivy Moore, the main character, experienced a lot of hardship in her early years. She loves her paralyzed twin sister despite the fact that she doesn't like her. The night of the car accident, which claimed the life of Ivy's father, left her twin sister paralyzed, and caused Ivy to watch their mother leave them, everything in her life changed. Her sister vents all of her anger and grief on Ivy, who just puts up with it because she feels bad that she survived and is "normal." One night, she is chased by weird looking creatures and rescued by a wolf, who is a vampire lord, Crispin, who tells her that she’s a hunter of those creatures. She realizes her life is so much more than she thought. Crispin is the local vampire lord who takes Ivy under his protection and trains her to fight and protect her from more attacks. Realising she is his mate, Crispin does everything he can to protect her from a threat closer than he realises. 

The story is amazing. The story line has a fairly smooth flow and is very well written. It has a strong female character, and I loved the chemistry between her and Crispin. I am looking forward to reading the second part of the book. I would recommend this book.

This is a new author to me and I loved the way its written. Its very current and witty. It made the story flow in a really fast paced way and I liked it a lot. This is book one in a series but I'd definitely consider reading the next one as I enjoyed this one.

I really enjoyed this book. Great world building. It was exciting, fast-paced, and suspenseful. The action kept me captivated and I really liked all the characters. 5+ stars.

Adventure, betrayal, secrets, guilt, and vampires and hunters. You know, to hunt down vamps that went bad. And no story is complete without a true mate! A fun vampire adventure with enough action to really keep things goong.

In this book you will see a great plot and end with a cliffhanger, I cannot wait to see what Sullins will give us in book 2. This book is fast paced, has action, and some spicy scenes in the book, I would rate them at 2.5, Fated mates, great relatable characters, and my favorite betrayal.

I loved that the heroes in this series are females, known as Hunters, they are employed by Vampires to help track down and kill rogue vampires that have turned into something else.

I thought the chemistry between Ivy and Crispin was great, Now I know some will not like that he can be dominating but if you have read other books with vampires, you will see a trend that most are alaphaholes when it comes to their mates, they all become very protective of their mates.

There were a few things that I did not like about the book: I did feel that, even for fated mates, their relationship went a little too fast for me. I wish we would have had a little more answers from Crispin and not just bam take her bed. Other than those two things I did enjoy the book and I do want to read the next one so I can get more answers.
I want to thank Netgalley & BooksGoSocial for the opportunity to read and review this book for my honest opinion.

Hunter's Blood is an exciting vampire romance with suspense and tension that builds as the story progresses. Ivy is a very likeable character who has been dealt hard blows by life and is the sole provider for her disabled sister injured in a car accident as a teen. Added to this was the disappearance of the mother after that same accident.
The story is fast-paced towards the end, and a few elements set the scene for the next book in the series. I'm looking forward to reading it.

This book took a little time to get cooking, but once it did, I couldn’t stop. It was a bit like a smutty mix of Buffy the vampire slayer meets moody and possessive Dracula. I hope you read that as the positive comparison I meant it to be.

Ivy is a bit of a loner, having been the primary caretaker for her injured sister. As twins, Ivy naturally feels a bit of responsibility towards her car, especially when they were both in the same crash that took their parents. There are, however, oodles of secrets that Ivy is keeping from almost everyone. During a run after work one night, she comes face-to-face with the evil that lurks in this world. They are seemingly drawn to her, for supernatural reasons that are better explained by her rescuer/rich stranger-turned-trainer vampire.

Crispin is the king of vampires in the region, has tons of power, and has sworn off women until Ivy marches into his life. He does all the rich vampire stuff to try to lure her in, complete with sparring matches, paying her bills, etc. Somehow, though, this doesn’t come off as canned vampire storyline. Ivy and Crispin have roadblocks, yes, but once they move firmly into romance they go full steam ahead. I liked that - knowing that we will probably go through some sort of savior thing, but knowing that at least we wouldn’t have this stupidly predictable miscommunication subplot. All-in-all I ended up liking a lot of the characters here, even the rather moody twin. Definitely worth another look at future installments.
