My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars

Book Blurb:

The sight of the blood covered fangs exploded from her deep memory like a ballthrough a plate glass window. The man had bitten Bobby, torn into him like a barbequed rib on the Fourth of July.

Vampires. Vam-pires. Real live - er, dead (undead?) - bloodsucking vampires, living in the City of Angels. Madison Rose, a street-smart twenty-something waitress would never have believed it - until a vampire thwarts a vicious attack against her by appearing in the nick of time and finishing off her assailant in one tasty bite.

Madison has been saved by the vampires - or has she? She learns that women have been going missing; their lifeless bodies turning up drained of blood. Now the murderer is after her. As the violence escalates, Madison, LAPD Detective Notchey, and a cadre of alluring and dangerous vampires search for the true killer - while Madison keeps a wary eye on the skittish and thirsty vampires. Will she survive to see the light of day?

My Review:
I found this author earlier this year.  I've loved Sue Ann's two other series so I thought I would see how she did with a paranormal story. Madison moves to LA after living in several foster homes. She's learned to take care of herself. Madison gets grabbed after work at the diner by Bobby, a regular. She thinks she's going to die after he takes her to the woods. Something, Someone... a man appears and bites Bobby. Madison then wakes up to find herself in a strange bed in a strange house. Was she dreaming, was she saved by a vampire last night? 

Madison is a tough gal with street smarts. She works with the vampires to try to figure out who is really doing the killing of young women in the area. 
Its not your usual vampire story.  I will gladly read more of Madison Rose and friends.
