Welcome to our blog!
Amy and Jennifer ARE Seduced by Books. We’re both in our 30’s, moms, close friends, work together, and share many of the same interests including our love of reading. Amy grew up in Maryland and has been obsessed with Vampires for as long as she can remember. Jenn grew up in Florida and loves the furry, the fey, and the fangs, in that order. Currently we are both in Orlando, FL. When we can be pulled away from books, Amy loves to bake and Jenn loves to take pictures and scrap.
We decided to create a place where we could direct friends, and acquaintances for, book suggestions/recommendations (Jenn’s been known to talk to strangers on the train while traveling in NYC). Once we started out with a simple page, we evolved from there. Now we are sharing our book reviews, fun comments, recipes, and giveaways. We try to give reviews on new releases, pre-releases, and oldies but goodies that we read, or are reading. We’re going to be adding author interviews for established and up and coming authors soon.

When Blood Calls by J K Beck

When Blood Calls
Attorney Sara Constantine is thrilled with her promotion—until she finds out that she must now prosecute vampires and werewolves. The first defendant she’ll be trying to put away? Lucius Dragos, the sexy stranger with whom she recently shared an explosive night of ecstasy.

When Lucius kisses a beautiful woman sitting next to him at the bar, he’s hoping only to avoid the perceptive gaze of the man he’s planning to kill. But what starts as a simple kiss ignites into an all-consuming passion. Charged with murder, Luke knows that Sara is determined to see him locked away—unless he can convince her that he’s not a monster. And that might mean making the ultimate sacrifice.

In case you didn’t notice, we’re constantly finding new authors and trying them on for size.  J K Beck is one of those we happened upon recently.  When Blood Calls is the first book in the Shadow Keepers trilogy.  Turns out - and we have to check them out - Beck also writes as Julie Kenner.  

I dove in blind with this author and was THRILLED with the splash.  Beck truly delivered.  This book had passion, plot and the paranormal.  You can’t go wrong with the 3 P’s.  Our classic Vamp has a little twist the younger they are.  They supernatural has their own police, court, judge and execution system secret to the “normal” judicial system.  While that concept may not be unique, Beck delivered with amazing scene development, believable and well thought out, mystery and thrills. 

Our main character is a little self righteous, however, Sara’s a damn good attorney, she’s got a little baggage, but stands to put the bad guy behind bars.  Try as she might she can not put behind her sexy ‘co-star’ Lucius who was last night’s triumph and now her first case to prosecute as well as…a Vampire.  The mystery evolves as to who is this sexy monster and how can he be accused of murder and the same man who heated up her bed and ruined her for others.  You are really kept on your toes and smacked when you find out the truth as the story unfolds.  Great love scenes and intensity. 

5 slices – and I already have book 2 on the way, can’t wait to see the rest develop. 

Check out an interview at one of the sites we follow and a giveaway for one of the series books.  



  1. hi there! thanks so much for stopping by my book blog, my kozy korner, and leaving a comment :-) I guess I need an exciting book or series to get me revved up to reading again. I like whatever is mainstream or the next big hit I guess...my taste is pretty eclectic, so it's hard for me to say. thanks for coming by!


  2. ok Kathie - I personally love paranormal, urban fantasy, erotic, hot and steamy.
    Anita Blake series by Laurell K Hamilton sucked me back into reading last year. The first book has been tough for some friends of mine, but stick it out, it gets amazing.
    I also LOVE the Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward
    And my personal FAV is Sherrilyn Kenyon, try her Dark Hunter series on for size, if you're not a fan of paranormal then she has a great "fbi" mystery series - B A D
    Also - Janet Evanovich, not Paranormal, but great fun sexy and did i mention fun? I love her writing, her characters are amazing. check back with me and tell me what you think
