EVERYONE’S OUT FOR BLOOD—HERS Ciara’s con-artist parents taught her three keys to survival: keep low, keep quiet, and most of all, keep moving. But managing WVMP, the Lifeblood of Rock ’n’ Roll—not to mention becoming a vampire herself—has kept her in one place long enough to fall madly in love, adopt an undead dog . . .

. . . and make more enemies than she can shake a stake at.

A psychotic DJ, a wanna-be necromancer, and a posse of vengeful hippies would all love to see Ciara get her day in the sun—literally. To protect Ciara, her fiancé, Shane, has traded his flannel shirt and guitar for a flak jacket and crossbow. If she survives to walk down the aisle, will she recognize the man waiting at the altar?

In this final chapter of the award-winning WVMP RADIO series, Ciara must decide who to trust, whom to love—and whom to kill.

I was so sad to learn this was the ending to the series. I just didn't know how it was going to end. And I was going to lose my favorite vampire Shane. I will admit a lot of my attraction to Shane is the fact he is stuck in the 90's and he is a total alternative guy. I am the biggest 90s alternative fan ever so as soon as I knew this about him I was in love. But it does help that is totally sexy in his flannels and worn out jeans.

It has been a few years since I read the last book, I was kinda afraid I would forget things and not follow. But that just was not the case at all. I quickly picked it up and was instantly in love. Lust for Life was amazing. I was glued to the pages. And my goodness Jeri threw us for the biggest loop ever. So did not see it coming. I can't believe it happened. It was something I would have never expected. And I so can not tell you about it.This book just blew my mind!

Even though this is the last book we still get to go on one last crazy adventure.Not only do they escape a building being bombed but they are being attacked by other vampires. Then Shane and Ciara discover they are truly unique. Oh and we still get some nice sexy sexy moments. Even though Ciara is now a vampire and her and Shane should be able to count on a long future that is just not how it goes. They discover that the blood that made Ciara so unique may also be speeding up her vampirism.

This book ended just so perfectly. I can not even put into words how awesome of an ending it was. Even though I am sad to see it go, I will leave fully satisfied. The WVMP series has been such a fun ride. You will never find vampires like the ones Jeri created. I have loved every book in this series and couldn't have asked for a more awesome story.  So, so long my favorite vampire radio D.J's I will miss you and all your quirks.

  1. You really are obsessed with the 80's and 90's. I swear we should have a late 80's early 90's themed party.

    1. That was the best time for music! I love it. And we should. Maybe for my 30th (throws up a little) birthday! Maybe that'll take my mind off that I am turning the big 3-0.

  2. I think I tried the first book, but I might have to give the second book a try. Great review. You have peaked my interest.

    1. It has hot vampires and we talk lots of about 90s music, whats not to love? lol you should try the 2d book.

  3. Great review Amber, I have this series on my wishlist. And I agree, it is always sad when a good series ends, but worse when a good series drags on and becomes a bore.

  4. This is, and will always be, a really great series. The plot is insane, it kept me reading the whole book all through the night. It's just unbelievable.
