Worth a read.
What is it about?
Piper has fallen on hard times, finding herself jobless and almost desperate. When her temp agency sends her out to be a live-in maid as a sprawling mansion, she knows it may be her last chance at redeeming her life and actually using a savings account. All she has to do is clean the place, ignore the handsome – yet still somewhat creepy ‘masters’ living there and keep from breaking anything. Easy, right?
Not so much. A smashed fifteen million dollar vase later and Piper is singing a different tune… one that prays her employers won’t fire her, or worse, push for recompense. There’s no way she can afford that! Nor can she afford to leave. And it seems they don’t really want her to anyway… especially as the clues and signs start pointing to the unbelievable fact that her ‘masters’ may not be even be human…
For a book with a blurb that reads like it will be a naughty adventure or a guilty fantasy, this was neither – in fact, it was a quite well thought out plot and story! Slow burn, if you can believe it – and one that has made me mark goodreads so I can check when book 2 comes out!
‘Indebted to Vampires’ originally appeared as a 15k word novella in the Realms and Rebels Box Set, though this edition has been spit polished, shined and expanded into its own introductory series. I did not read the Anthology, so I cannot tell you what differences there are, but I can say that this version is highly entertaining and offers enough intrigue to keep my interest piqued.
First Person, Multiple POV
- FMC: she may be human in a house of monsters, but she is no push over.
- Rayne: Decades older than her, he is still young for a vampire and immature as a teenager… but there is something about the charming redhead I can’t help but love.
- Surprisingly, a slow burn. I kinda like that.
- Flows well
- She’s a klutzy fool… I can relate
- Despite multiple POV’s, we didn’t see from all the brothers.
- Cliffhanger… ah well. 🤷♀️
Less dirty than I thought it would be and far more fun, this is a worthy addition to any TBR List.
