Book synopsis (from Amazon):

Finding your soul-mate; the one meant for you – could be worse … Or could it?

An erotic paranormal vampire novel to tantalize and thoroughly entertain you.
Plus hot, paranormal bonus stories!

Nora is passionate and fearless. Until now she’s seduced and fed on humans, infusing them with a venom that causes them to awake none the wiser. But Fletcher hasn’t forgotten. Nor can she forget him, throwing her into peril with her own clan.

Fletcher is a happy-go-lucky college football star. Until he meets Nora. When her life is endangered he is plummeted into a world of darkness and danger.

Marcel, the clan’s benevolent leader, is Nora’s maker with whom she shares a special love. When horrifying events in the town threaten the clan he comes face-to-face with his past. A devastation he may not survive.

Kindred souls. The connection is inescapable. It can be a joyous connection. And it can be life-shattering.

My review:

This was a different take on vampire romance novels. What made it different was that the vampires bite usually made people forget that the vampire bit and fed from them. It had a poison in it that caused amnesia. Not notice that I said usually because Nora fed off of Fletcher and guess what….he remembered everything. Which could have been a potentially awful thing for Nora and her clan of vampires.

What also made this book different was that Nora’s clan of vampires were peaceful. They only wanted to be left alone and feast on the people of the town without killing them. But around the same time that Nora realized that Fletcher wasn’t immune, a group of psychotic nomad vampires has taken up in an abandoned house and they are planning on taking down the leader of the clan, Marcel.

I liked that there were *good* and *bad* vampires but I did wish that more was explained about some of the vampires in Ben’s group before Fletcher burned them to death. I mean, I was very interested in Leon and how he got turned as a tween. Ben, himself, interested me too because he was so evil. I wish more was given on his backstory to see why he turned out the way he did.

I liked the explanation of Kindred Souls. It actually made sense why Fletcher and Nora had such a deep and instant connection. It also made sense when Ben continued to live in Marcel’s head after he was killed. Actually, thinking about it, it was pretty creepy. I agreed with the actions that Octavia and Lena had to do to protect the clan.

The sex between Fletcher and Nora was hot, very hot. I loved that their first time was in a seedy hotel. Their sex was a little rough but oh so sweet. The sex that Nora had with Marcel was a little less rough but was just as good!!

The end of the book was pretty good and I liked how everything was resolved. It was definitely an HEA!!!

How many stars will I give Kindred Souls: 4

Why: I loved the sex, the different take on vampires (oh and don’t forget the Twilight zingers in it….lol). The storyline was very engaging and kept my attention.

Will I reread: Yes

Will I recommend to family and friends: Yes

Age range: Adult

Why: Explicit sex, language, and violence. Also a pretty gruesome scene of two vampires having sex after killing 3 girls.
