The Vampire of Vancouver

The Vampire of Vancouver was written by Liz Meldon.  It is the second book in her Lovers and Liars series.  This post was organized by N K Author Services.  I was provided with a copy in exchange for my honest book review.  All opinions are my own.

About the book:

Aphrodite, goddess of love and lust, is not impressed. After giving up her penthouse suite in trendy Manhattan to go monster hunting around the world, she finds herself in a sad hotel room in Vancouver with a decidedly distracted Loki. She hadn't expected this job to be so serious, and her Norse partner isn't exactly bowing to her whims these days. What was the point in coming with him if they weren’t beneath the sheets all hours of the day? It seems like such a waste of sexual compatibility. Humph.

Meanwhile, Loki, Norse trickster, is equally unimpressed. He hadn't thought taking on a beautiful partner would make his work so difficult. Her unfocused energy grates on his nerves, and his lust for her is only surpassed by his desire for more godly power. He will complete this job, whether she likes it or not, and he’ll walk away one step closer to regaining his old abilities. Now, if only he can get his partner to focus on the task at hand, not seduction. Ridiculous woman.

Aphrodite and Loki, an unlikely team if there ever was one, find themselves in the City of Vancouver hunting vampires. The job is pretty straightforward: rescue the damsel, kill the monster. Unfortunately, even the easiest of jobs hardly ever go according to plan.

My review:

Liz Meldon just brings all of the worlds together into one place.  We've got Norse mythology, Greek mythology, vampires... all sorts of paranormal happenings all in one cover.  I love the whole big melting pot of fiction.

Loki and Aphrodite are so fun together.  They both have the huge egos of Gods... but when you get in their heads they're really just as self-conscious and anxious over what others think of them as everyone else.  They like each other... but worry that they don't really like each other.  They think they're satisfying each other... but they question if they other is really just faking it.  Neither wants to admit that they actually like being together for fear that the other will just laugh at them.

Can't wait to see what job they take on next (in Idaho? what?).
