my review of Tempted by Blood by Laurie London.

Book 3 in the Sweetblood Series
Deep within the forests of the Pacific Northwest, the battle for supremacy rages on between two Vampire coalitions:

Guardian enforcers sworn to protect humanity, and Darkbloods, rogues who kill like their ancient ancestors….

He might be known for his effortless charm, but Guardian Jackson Foss is hiding a terrible secret. For months, he has battled the emergence of his dark nature—deadly urges that threaten to consume him. And those cravings only intensify when he meets Arianna Wells, the human he’s been assigned to protect. Smart and perceptive, Arianna doesn’t seem like a dangerous temptress. Yet she awakens in Jackson an unstoppable need that, if left unchecked, will brand him a traitor…a crime punishable by death.

But soon their bond may be Arianna’s only hope. For stalking her in the shadows is a merciless enemy—one who will stop at nothing to claim her completely….

My Thoughts:
Jackson is the playboy, extreme bad boy of the group but he has been keeping secrets from this team mates.  Secrets that once exposed could get him killed.  But in order to save the ones he loves he will put everything on the line.
Arianna has always known that there are monsters hiding in the shadows, because she watched those shadows kill her mother.  When Arianna learns the truth of these monsters she will have to learn to trust the one thing that she has feared all her life.
OH, How I loved Jackson’s story.  I just love when the bad boy gets taken down a notch or two by the woman that they are going to fall in love with.  It is so much fun to watch them fall, and boy do they fall hard.   Jackson & Arianna are great together.  And Jackson is a man with many talents and a few surprises I never saw coming.
This was another wonderful book from the uber talented Laurie London.  If you enjoyed the first two books in the Sweetbloods series, Tempted by Blood will not let you down.  
I am looking forward to book 4 now, scheduled for release summer 2012
HUGE thank you to Laurie for allowing me to read and review Jackson’s book, I have only been begging for Jackson’s book since I finished Alfonso’s book.
