Bad to The Bone by Jeri Smith-Ready

This is the second in the series of rather unique vampire books.  The wealth of vampire books out there makes it difficult to differentiate yourself from the horde.  Ms. Smith-Ready does a nice job standing out from the pack.   She put together a unique plot with some “civilized” vampires.  The “good” vampires are DJ’s living in the basement of an independent radio station.   This installment has them facing revenge from some folks who feel they have been wronged by the vampires.

Ciara is the focus of the first two books.   She is a “retired” con artist who is struggling in college and takes a job at WVMP to make ends meet.  She quickly discovers her co-workers are a bit different.   This story has more interpersonal actions between Shane, one of the Djs and Ciara.   I guess some would characterize this as a “chick” book because of the emphasis on relations and smoldering sex.  I think the basis of every good book should be the characters and this author does a nice job fleshing out her characters. (vampire joke intended)

There is a lot of action and my new personal favorite character, Dexter.   

I liked the premise and the DJs concept.   The book was entertaining and romantic.  The romantic aspect is not something I personally find appealing but it will most definitely entice a large audience.
I recommend the book.
