Review: Hidden by Blood

Finn is a Sweetblood… a human whose blood is intoxicating to vampires. He has been kidnapped and is being used as a blood slave, when his ex-girlfriend Brenna accidentally finds him, hidden in an old hunting cabin. Finn never knew it, but Brenna is a vampire and the entire reason she broke up with him is because she feared that she would one day hurt him. Now that he knows the truth, Finn is determined to make a future with her, despite the risk.

I can’t say I loved this one. First of all, what are the chances that Finn’s ex-girlfriend would accidentally stumble across his hidden little prison? Even if you could get past that, this is a guy who’s been kidnapped, chained, and milked for blood. And he is instantly ok with Brenna being a vampire. He has no suspicions or fear; he just wants to jump her bones. And while I appreciate the fact there’s a little nookie, it’s not even super-steamy. Dom comes across as kind of douchy and Finn makes him change his mind in a nano-second. I know it’s a short story, but it’s all too easy. It just fell flat. 2 1/2 stars.

P.S. We were told 4 times that Brenna has flaxen hair. Would it kill you to just say blonde?
