Review: Hawk by Patricia A. Rasey

Kaleb “Hawk” Tepes, as president of the Sons of Sangue and descendant of Vlad III, needs to keep his head focused on club business. Trouble is someone wants to divest him of it for a crime he committed against his vampire predecessors. He can’t afford distractions, especially those that come in the form of a five-foot-two sprite named Suzi, who once belonged to his nephew. In a moment of weakness, he makes a snap decision that can only spell trouble. Now faced with the one person who wants him dead, Kaleb must make the ultimate sacrifice or chance losing the only woman he truly desired forever. Suzi Stevens has tried hard to put her past behind her and move forward. The one man she yearns for over all others, believes her to be nothing but cold-hearted. Hearing that someone has tried to behead him, she shelves past prejudices and rushes to his side, needing to see for herself that he’s all right. What she doesn’t count on is Hawk’s demand to take her as his personal blood donor. Now forced to endure his company, she fears losing her heart for all eternity to the one person who has the power to crush her.

Hawk by Patricia A. Rasey

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Release date: May 27th

In this 2nd book in the Sons of Sangue series we get a lot of the loose ends that were left at the end of Viper’s book wrapped up.

In the first book we met the Tepes brothers who are descendants of Vlad III one of the original vampires. Along with being vampires they are also part of a Motorcycle Club – Viper being the previous president and Hawk being the current president due to things that happened in the first book. When this book starts out Viper and Cara location is unknown and Hawk is trying to keep the MC running smoothly without his twin.

There are a couple of plots going on through this book. One is someone is trying to kill Hawk. Its after the first attempt that Viper finally calls and explains where he and Cara have been and they have an idea of who could be trying to kill him.

The second plot is the romance portion. Suzi Stevens is Cara’s good friend and has a history with the Tepes. She was a good friend with Viper’s son up until his death 10 years ago. Hawk has always believed they were more than friends and thought she didn’t show enough grief when he died and has to have an heart made of ice – a type of woman he wants nothing to do with. But before she was “friends” with his nephew they had a one night stand what he has never been able to forget and neither has she even though she cannot stand him for the way he runs through and treats women. These two fight their attraction even though Hawk goes all alpha vampire male quite a bit.

As with the first book we also have the other members of the MC as secondary characters who even though are tough they certainly have plenty of drama in their sex lives. There is a type of triangle started between Grayson and Anton and Tamera which will be interesting to see how it plays out in future books.

A lot of the arcs started in the first book have some closure in this one along with a surprise at the end. Ms Rasey again does a perfect job of blending the life of a MC club along with the life of vampires.
