CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE! Las Vegas…..the city that never sleeps and is a town that has a haven for vampires in the Bloody or Nothing hotel. Sudsy is the Las Vegas Master Vampire, drag queen and owner of Bloody or Nothing Hotel. When Sudsy meets Julian, an up and coming singer in trouble, Sudsy takes him to the hotel and finds a passion so hot, it scorches the fingers. Their affair escalates even as trouble looms on the horizon. Can Sudsy keep Julian from harm as evil strengthens in the shadows?
I have to admit, I haven’t read The Elixer Maiden’s series that this spins off from and frankly after reading this first book, I am itching to grab it. BLOODY OR NOTHING 1: SUDSY is a wild ride from start to finish with an over the top drag queen, a mystery to solve and passion so hot, it scorches the fingertips. Ms. Hill delivers a great introduction into the vampires who inhabit Las Vegas and the Bloody or Nothing Hotel. Multi-dimensional characters, tight writing and a fast paced storyline keep the reader glued to the pages as they try to figure out, alongside Julian and Sudsy, who or what is rising in the shadows.
Meet Sudsy Waters, a sensual drag queen who owns the Bloody or Nothing Hotel. Sudsy is also the Master Vampire for Las Vegas, keeping the humans/mortals from harm. Meeting Julian, an up and coming singer has him breaking his “No Mortals” rule and with Julian, finds a man who has problems of his own and Sudsy finds an evil rising that he races to extinguish. Sudsy was a great character. I loved that this was a man who looked better in a dress than me. Julian was a man who went through a bad breakup and is finding that life is about to get a little crazy when he falls for Sudsy. There were also some great secondary characters that popped up that had me intrigued. I am hoping they show up in the rest of the Bloody or Nothing series books.
BLOODY OR NOTHING 1: SUDSY is a fast paced fun ride that will leave you eager for more. Ms. Hill is a talented author who knows how to tell a story with exceptional characters and who hooks her readers within the first few pages. I am eager to see what happens next at the Bloody or Nothing Hotel.
