His lips left mine and gently, very lightly traveled across my cheek and down to my neck, hovering there. His cool breath sent chills through me, awakening feelings I didn’t know existed.
His lips softly kissed my neck, and then I felt two sharp pricks. Joann’s love of fantasy and science fiction inspired her to create the Brookehaven Vampires and their world. She lives in Northern California with her very supportive husband and their two wonderful children, along with what she likes to call her furry entourage-two tuxedo cats and a very devoted Aussie.
Between being a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom and a wife, she spends her spare time, what little there is of it, hard at work on the next Brookehaven installment.

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. The big battle at the end was one of those, while the primary bad guys stake in things is known it was very unknown why all these others people were causing havoc and mayhem, it seems very out of the blue.
There was also a ton of angst and the characters were pretty immature, we repeat things like he’s gorgeous and cute smile way to much. Since one of the characters is supposed to be 35 it was really out of place One person found this helpful. I was intrigued because this was the first I’d heard of the series. This book captured me at the beginning and I couldn’t put it down until I was finished and that’s saying a lot because it’s not a short story!
It doesn’t have a happily ever after ending because the next book continues the saga. This is Laney and Oliver’s story and it’s action-packed! Laney Alexander is a junior in college and she lives with her best friend Kierra Blake.
Their first day of school is a doozy! Kierra ends up passing out in class and Mr. McHottie helps get her to the school nurse. She’s been raised by her aunt after her mother died when she was only two. Her father isn’t in the picture and we aren’t really told where he is.
Oliver Knight is an enigma, and he seems to read Laney like a book. He knows when she stares at him in class and when she’s happy or sad.
He slowly begins to insert himself into her daily life. The chemistry between Laney and Oliver sizzles. They are different in every way, yet fit together like two pieces of a puzzle. This story is fast paced and you are left hanging at the end. There are so many twists and turns that you are not sure if you are up or down and your emotions reflect it also.
The characters are complex and layered. They are not easy to figure out at all and when you finally believe you have, something new begins and you are right at the beginning again.
: Laney (The Brookehaven Vampires, Book 1) eBook: Joann I. Martin Sowles: Kindle Store
This is a fabulously written book and a welcome addition to my library. I look forward to reading the next installment in this series.
The beginning of Laney reminded me entirely too much of Twilight, complete with Twilight references. Girl goes to school ok so she was in college – not a big difference meets guy in class and later finds out he is a vampire. The first half was so slow paced I nearly gave up on it. I managed to stick it out and finish it. Oliver was portrayed as the typical mysterious overly gorgeous vampire boy.
It was obvious early on what he was with the thermos and blood stained lips afterward yet it seemed to take Laney awhile to figure it out. I didn’t feel like the story actually took off until half way through when she met Olivers family and he met her Aunt. The instant dislike the Aunt had still didn’t seem to compute with Laney. The biggest relief was Laney’s personality. She had a spine and wasn’t afraid to speak up – though she wasn’t observant.
The introduction and involvement of Oliver’s family is where a lot of the action, humor and mystery come from. Julz is a gothic vampire bonded to a very bad antagonist Oscar, Oliver’s brother. I didn’t quite understand why Oliver took Julz away, I mean yeah Oscar may be bad but if they were bonded and she chose her path to be with him it shouldn’t have mattered to Oliver.
I suppose the little added extra surprise of a certain smaller vampy had something to do with it. I liked the action scenes and did laugh along with some of the humor. Overall for me the book wasn’t my cup of tea, it just didn’t do it for me.
Laney starts out with Laney Alexander is in class when she meets the handsome Oliver Knight. She instantly has a crush on him, and they start to form a relationship. But things start to change when she finds out Oliver’s secret.
Series: The Brookehaven Vampires
There are things I like about this book, and things I don’t like. The Things I like about the book: The vampire’s are brookehwven from other stories, and it makes the book more unique and interesting. They are perfect for each other, and I really want to see what happens between them.
Like the fact that she’s never met him. I have some ideas about that, but I brookehxven it would have been revealed, or at least hinted to it. The things I don’t like about the book: Vampirse really hated how it ended, it just made me mad. So I thought that was seriously pointless.
It seemed to cause drama that wasn’t needed in the story at all. I love how she takes the whole vampire thing. But I hate how she deals with Julz. It really drove me nuts.

Overall because of these things the book ending up being only okay. I will probably read the next one, but not sure about after that.
I just hope it gets better! See all brookehzven. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.
