Book Review - Awakened by Virna DePaul

My Thoughts

Barrett is tracking a 17 year old girl named Jane who is missing. Her aunt and uncle claim that she has run off with a vampire groupie, but the more Barrett investigates the more it looks like human trafficking. She intercepts a conference call where she spots Jane which leads her to Nick who she used to date when she was in the Army. Nick is now a hunter for the FBI taking out dangerous soldiers turned vampires. He is also a bit of a computer geek hence the link to the conference call. They team up to hunt the vampires dealing in humans at the same time dealing with their feelings for each other.

I loved everything about this story. The mystery was fantastic...missing girl complete with creepy aunt and uncle. Reunited lovers to solve the mystery to have some steamy moments along the way. Answering some questions within the series but generating a few to keep in mind for the next book in the series. So about that mole in the FBI...

I give Awakened 5 hearts!

About the Book

Ex-soldier Barrett Miles had no idea that vampires were real—until Belladonna recruits her to serve as a covert agent and infiltrate a murderous sex ring run by the most depraved of immortals, those who feed on the purity and blood of innocents. Their latest victim: a young girl whom Barrett promised to protect. She will be sold—unless Barrett can find her first. Forced to team up with her former lover, Nick Maltese, an undercover sniper, Barrett is caught between fulfilling her personal mission and shielding her heart from the man who betrayed her.

Nick’s hunting a new breed of vampires and harboring a terrible secret when Barrett finds him. Soon a seething underworld of strange desires threatens to engulf them all. Can he save the girl and reclaim Barrett’s heart? Nick knows he has only one chance to prove himself to her as the hunt begins—and their love forces them to embrace the darkest places in their souls.
