I received a copy of Love at Stake in exchange for my review.
Abbey works at Fated Match, the most prestigious dating agency for supernaturals. Human herself, Abbey has no intention of dating any supernaturals herself, but all that changes when she meets Lucien. A vampire for centuries, he's never found his mate, and yet as soon as he meets Abbey he is captivated by the bubbly and colourful human. But Abbey's boss isn't impressed with how distracted her star client is by her employee, and that's not to mention the other problems their fledgling relationship faces.
Wow! This book was sexy, fun and engaging. I really wanted to keep turning the pages to find out what happened next for Abbey and Lucien. Though there was also some page turning to find the next witty comment!
What attracted me to this book was the concept, I haven't read anything about a dating agency for supernaturals and it intrigued me. And its safe to say I wasn't disappointed! I thought that the concept, along with the execution and story line worked perfectly together.
Oh and the chemistry between Abbey and Lucien was amazing, almost jump off the page good. Though I often forgot that he was a vampire. Saying that, it was the pretty standard Abbey refuses to date vampires line, and Lucien had to convince her otherwise. The thing that wasn't standard about it though was the fact that he did it in such a fun and sometimes amusing way.
The other good thing this book had to offer was Chloe. Though all she really talked about with Abbey was men, it was still a believable relationship, and it seems quite rare for there to actually be a relationship between two female friends in some books.
Oh and the final thing, I was so relieved to read a heroine who wasn't skinny and petite. Abbey had body hang ups and was basically a real person. It really did make her much more likable as a character, as well as making her much more relatable to most of the readers, which is something a lot of the stick thin and stunning women in don't actually have.
