Three days ago, she was a wife, a mother, and very much alive… then the music called to her.
Marketing maven Claire has one goal for the Music Expo– to land a few whales so that her boss will give her a badly needed raise. She puts on her game face and courts the industry’s elite until her plans are derailed by hotness-in-high-heels.
Vampire Bette wants to find a human with untapped talents that she can mold and control. Using a haunted violin, she lures Claire in with her lilting song and bewitching smile. In that moment, Claire’s life is unraveled and she finds herself with more than strange dreams and overdue bills to worry about. Much more.
To make matters worse, Claire is attracted to two unlikely people– Bette and her hunky but pale associate, Gregor. Both can light Claire’s fire, but is either of them the only one?
Unfortunately for Claire, life isn’t all song lyrics and seduction. Tied to darkness by blood and power, Claire must harness her abilities if she has any hope of returning home to her daughter and regaining her former life.
Kill Me, the debut novel from author Alex Owens, is a quirky paranormal fantasy complete with music, magic, fangs and freaks. It is also the first in a planned series, with the second book due out by the Fall of 2012. Be forewarned, this is not your daughter’s paranormal.
The main character-Claire Capianna is a recently separated soon to be divorced mother of one who lived with her husband until they separated. She meets up with some interesting persons who are actually vampires. The story has Claire exploring her lesbian side. She is also working a campaign for a company called SheRawks who I believe turns her into a vampire. Along the way she learns how to handle her hunger, her sexual urges, and learns how to live her life as normal as possible.
I gave this story 4 stars. It is a nicely developed story that has a lot of scenery and a lot of mini events happening throughout it. But the main line that goes through if you were to follow it would be that Claire is learning how to survive on her own using her own sexual power and personal power to create a world for herself with the hand that she is dealt.
I think that you will enjoy this read.
