My review:

Sex & the Single Vamp is author Robin Covington’s first dip into the vampire world and after loving Robin’s contemporary work, I was really excited for her vampires.  Well, she didn’t disappoint.  This book was fantastic!

CiCi was used to those opposing her matchmaking business.  There are a lot of people who just don’t believe a person can have a hand in matching up a couple like two puzzle pieces.  As if those doubt weren’t enough, add human/supernatural matches and she just about tripled the people opposing it.  But she wasn’t going to let that stop her from helping people find true love. Supernatural or not.  Everyone was entitled to that kind of happiness.  She had once dreamed of that kind of happiness for herself but that was a lifetime ago and she refused to let her memories drift back to that time…and that man.  Things really start to get messy for CiCi when someone starts trying to ruin her reputation and hurt her clients.  There’s only one person she would ever go to for help…and it just so happens to be the man who broke her heart a couple of hundreds of years ago.

Deacon could say that he was shocked when CiCi shows up at his office asking for help, but if he’s being honest, he’s not.  He’s been keeping tabs on her for years and had hoped when things starting happening involving her matchmaking business that she would come to him for help.  He still loved her and any excuse to see her was good for him.  Besides, he couldn’t turn her away if he wanted to.  He promised her dying father hundreds of years ago that he would protect her at all costs for the rest of her life.  So here she was, asking for help.  And Deacon, being more than happy to provide that protection, agrees.  Of course, he has his own terms that she must agree to and it may involve making up for some lost time….between the sheets.

The mystery surrounding the sabotage and who, or what, is responsible for them will take Deacon and CiCi on a road that will change them forever….if they live that long.

Wow.  As I said earlier, I’m a big fan of Robin and her work and she totally rocked the vamp world with this book.  The backstory between CiCi and Deacon gave their relationship so much depth and it was easy to imagine the feelings they had toward one another.  It was easy to feel the sexual tension between them in that first meeting and it was easy to cheer for them to get together.  Oh, and when they do?  Smoking hot!  Deacon is total alpha vampire who knows exactly what he wants and isn’t afraid to get it.  CiCi is strong-willed and can’t let go of her feelings of hurt, even if it was hundreds of years earlier.  I can’t really blame her either.  Having to work together to solve the mystery on their hands really helps push them into spending time together and working things out.  Of course, there’s a pivotal moment near the ending that had me a nervous wreck for this couple.  Luckily, endings are another one of Robin’s strong suits and this was no exception!

All in all, this was a fresh and sexy read and I really enjoyed it.  I will be looking forward to more of the supernatural from Robin….well, actually, anything from Robin because I do adore that gal!
