#BookReview: Velvet (Velvet, #1) by @ByTempleWest

Velvet (Velvet, #1)

About the Book: Equal parts steamy and funny, with a few genuinely creepy moments, this paranormal romance has everything -- compelling characters, plenty of witty banter, and a romance that just might be to die for. 

After losing both her parents before age 17, aspiring designer Caitlin Holte feels like her whole world has been turned upside down, and that was before she accidentally attracted the attention of a demon. Then, she learns that her hot, bad-boy neighbor, Adrian -- who might have just saved her life -- is actually a half-demon vampire. 

Suddenly, Caitlin is stuck with a vampire bodyguard who feels that the best way to protect her is to become her pretend boyfriend. Trouble is, Caitlin is starting to fall in love for real, while Adrian can never love a human. Caitlin trusts Adrian to keep her safe from his demon father, but will he be able to protect her heart?

Temple West’s debut novel Velvet is a sexy, delightful romance chosen by readers like you for Macmillan's young adult imprint Swoon Reads.

About the Author: Temple West, debut author of the YA paranormal romance Velvet, is as nerdy in real life as she is on the Twitter. Armed with a very shiny English degree, she spent four months in Oxford holed up at the Radcliffe Camera amongst the hush of ancient books and the rich musk of academia. Returning to Los Angeles, she acquired a concurrent degree in film, mostly as an excuse to write essays about The Princess Bride and Hook. She can sew (poorly), drive stick (please fasten your seatbelt), and mostly lift her feet off the ground while stuttering into first gear on a very small motorcycle. She currently lives in Seattle and is the proud mother to a one-year-old laptop and a vintage Remington typewriter.


Noteworthy experiences while reading this book:

Recommend this book? Duh!!

Notes and Opinions: This book goes by so quickly. I loved this story. I can promise you this will not be the last time I read it. Goodness, it was soooo good!! I literally took this book everywhere with me. And the characters were just so fun and lovable!! Cat is such a strong character and I loved that about her. Her relationship with Adrian was so well balanced. They became friends first then fell head over heels for each other. No insta-love here! Time to binge read Cashmere (book 2)!!

Go Into This One Knowing: Grab book 2 quickly!
