Loving a dead man can be brutal.

Diana Reye’s pregnancy is draining her of life. Now she and vampire Ryder Latimer are faced with the most difficult choice of all. Turn Diana, or lose her and the baby. If Ryder chooses to save them, he risks the wrath of the Slayer Council and will be marked for his own death by their friend Michaela. Chasing a vampire can be consuming.

FBI agent Michaela Ramirez has been searching for the vampire who raped and killed her mother while acting as an enforcer for the Slayer Council. Since meeting FBI Director Jesus Hernandez , however, Michaela is losing a bit of her edge as she imagines the possibility of a life full of happiness and passion with her handsome boss by her side…and in her bed.

Living without the one they love isn’t an option.

But soon trouble comes calling as the vampire she hunts makes Michaela his prey. Now Michaela finds herself in a battle not only for her own life, but for her friends lives as well, as she and Ryder both make the difficult decision to break all the rules for love.


My review:

Die For Love is the fourth book in author Caridad Piñeiro’s The Reborn Series and admittedly, the first in the series that I have read.  Well, clearly I have been missing out.  This book was amazing and I have already added the others in the series to my to-read list!

This story primarily follows two couples and their current struggles, which is a fun break from the one-couple-per-book norm I’ve been reading lately.

Michaela Ramirez is good at two things…being an FBI agent and a vampire slayer.  You see those two things are easy for her because you don’t really require a whole lot of warm and fuzzy emotions.  She really didn’t excel at the warm and fuzzy.  Not since seeing her mother brutalized and murdered in front of her at twelve years old.  The problem now is Jesus Hernandez, her lover.  He is bringing about all sorts of emotions she never knew she was capable of, and emotions she’s afraid of feeling.  Just when she thinks she already has plenty on her plate, she stumbles across her vampire father.  The man she has wanted revenge on for as long as she can remember.  Never before has Michaela been more emotionally confused or her focus more shattered and never before has it mattered most.  Her heart and sense of revenge are at stake….

Soon-to-be-mom Diana Reye should be experiencing the common joys of first time parenthood.  Picking out the paint color for the nursery, choosing names, buying baby clothes.  Instead, Diana and her vampire husband Ryder are deciding if and when they will have to take away Diana’s human life in exchange for a vampire life in order to save her and their unborn child.  Add into the mix their friend and vampire slayer Michaela and the possibility she will kill Ryder for turning Diana and you could say that this baby prep is anything but normal.  Their happy ending is anything but certain and the stress is unbearable at times.

So, you already know this is the first book in author Piñeiro’s The Reborn Series that I have read but the beauty of Caridad’s writing is that I wasn’t once lost or confused during this book.  That being said, I was able to thoroughly enjoy all the emotions swirling around in this book…and man, there were a multitude of them! Starting with Michaela and Jesus.  These two are so well matched and Jesus has an innate ability when it comes to dealing with Michaela.  He knows she’s not going to admit her feeling easily but he knows she is worth fighting for.  Michaela is one kick-ass heroine.  When she has her sights set on something, she goes for it.  All in, consequences be damned.  I loved her for that.  Their ending in this story was so fitting for them as a couple! I won’t give any of the details away but know this….it’s in true Michaela fashion in how they get their own special version of a happy ever after.

Now, for Diana and Ryder….whew!  These two are equally amazing.  Diana was absolutely meant to be a mom and the way she fought for what was best for her unborn daughter was humbling and something any mom can relate to.  Doing what’s best for you child no matter what.  Ryder is also 100% dad material and he broke my heart with his worry for his wife and child.  I will tell you that I sobbed through almost four entire chapters with them.  But, if you know me, you know two things….1.) I love to cry while reading and 2.) I wouldn’t recommend a book that ends sadly.  But other than that, my lips are sealed!

I have appreciated Caridad, as a person and as an author, for quite some time and this book is just another example of how awesome she is.  If you’re a fan of love stories filled with emotion and suspense, and of course the paranormal, than I absolutely recommend this story.  Thank you, Caridad, for a spectacular and thrilling story!

  1. OMG, now I’m crying!!!! Thank you thank you thank you for your review. This is a very special book for me. It’s been nearly 10 years since I started the series and have been building up to this book. I am SOOOO GLAD that it worked for you. I’m busy working on the next stories in the series. One is a novella featuring Ryder and that will set up FIGHT FOR LOVE. As you can imagine, Diana and Ryder, as well as the others, have a lot to learn to handle after DIE FOR LOVE. THANK YOU!

    • We are quite the crying pair! Thank you for stopping by and for your kind comments! I cannot WAIT to see what the future holds for all of your characters….I’m sure it will be amazing! XOXO Jillian
