About a Vampire is book twenty two in the Argeneau series by Lynsay Sands and it can be read on it’s own. It’s not necessary to have followed the story from the begging to pick this one up.

Holly is currently working as a part-time worker for a funeral home when she unexpectedly encounters Justin one night. Justin is there doing his Hunter job and disposing of the bad vampires that have been killed.

I liked About a Vampire as much as I could, but I was hopping for more. It lacked the humor that I have come to love and enjoy. It didn't have a very good explanation on why Justin is attracted to Holly. The only thing we get is that he can’t read her mind, which is one of the indications that an Immortal has found their lifemate. And, last their was no true conflict and so the story just dragged.

Justin’s lifemate in this one is Holly and it turns out she's married. Is married before her turn and after to a human. I kinda felt bad for Justin having to deal with finding his lifemate and then knowing he can’t have her; because she’s married. Holly on the other hand never wowed me. I get her wanting to be loyal to her wedding vows, but the more we learn about her marriage the more it sounds like it was convent and that they are friends with benefits instead of true husband and wife team. But, what really upset me about this story is Justin’s friends and colleagues. They where deliberately mean to Justin. They gave him very bad advice on what Holly likes. Yes, in the other stories Justin razed them and gave them a hard time when they found their lifemates, but he was never deliberately cruel and the women never got hurt by his antics. It was just so wrong and upsetting to see this. Then their is the ending where everything wraps up nice and easy and it’s all a ok. It was to convent of a way to wrap everything up and make it all turn out for the best.

The only thing that I truly enjoyed was the return of shared dreams. Why? It’s one of the indications of a lifemate and one that we haven’t seen in a while.

About a Vampire was an easy and comfortable read, but disappointing for me as a fan.

Rated: 2.5 Stars

Finally Bricker's story and he isn't much better at the life mate convincing business. Bricker spends a lot of time fantasizing and trying to woo his already married life mate. While it's clear Holly's marriage isn't all it could be, I didn't like that she was married, I liked how loyal she was to her marriage. I really wanted more depth.

Summary
Justin Bricker, after killing some rogues, is ordered to dispose of the evidence. While at a cemetery attempting to burn them, he and his colleague are found by a mortal...Holly Bosley. Justin chases after her when his attempt to control her mind fails and she ends up with scissors in her hands and trips and falling on her own "weapon" and Justin is forced to turn her in order to save her. He realizes then that she is his lifemate. Justin has seen enough of life matings to think he can conquer his with little effort. But when Justin attempts to explain who he is and the life that Holly will have to live, he is informed that Holly thinks him "nuts" and should go to a mental hospital. And he realizes that she is married, of all his luck, his lifemate is married to another man. The laws of the immortals forbid him to pursue her while she is married. Her feelings for her husband are genuine and she has loved him since they were kids. For the first time in his life, Justin is at a loss on what to do. Holly's life has turned completely around, and at first she doesn't want to believe what she has become. But after her training, she returns home to her husband and the "easy and comfortable" life she has. But realizes that she has feelings for two men....one whom she loves and another she dreams about. She refuses to betray the one man she has adored and loved since she was a child, but she also can't ignore the powerful feelings she has for Justin.
The Hero
Justin Bricker is quite cocky and arrogant. Despite the fact that he is one of the younger vampires, a little over a hundred years old, he thinks he has a handle on a woman's mind. He knows what women want and when his lifemate comes along, that it will be easy for him to make her fall in love. Justin is an enforcer, and he well learned in the ways of immortals. When he finds Holly and learns of her circumstances, he knows that his hands are tied unless she makes a move. Until he realizes "dream mating". He is sure that is the only way he will be able to seduce her. His instinct is to mate with her, but he can't while she is bound to someone else. Justin Bricker is a character we have seen most of the series and probably the cockiest of them all. I love seeing him finally get a challenge that he doesn't expect and seeing how he handles some conflict that he isn't ready for. I felt like overall his character was quite entertaining, but I really didn't like how he treated the situation of Holly being married. It got me a bit frustrated at times. But he does learn....eventually, respecting Holly and her decisions despite how difficult it is for him to accept Holly and be willing to wait for her.
The Heroine

Holly Bosley grew up with parents who traveled the world as archaeologists, and her husband was a boy she practically grew up with as his father was friends and colleagues with her parents. He is her best friend, and she has always loved him. She is content with their life, working and going to school to get her degree and trying to support her husband in his career. Her latest temp job has thrown a curve ball. Holly is shocked to learn about the discovery of vampires and that she has become one. She doesn't truly believe until she actually returns home. Holly was a heroine I admired from the beginning. Most of her reactions I felt were pretty realistic. I love the way that she remains devoted to her husband despite her growing feelings for Justin. Holly seems to be reserved at first, and in some ways she is. But she has spirit and quite a bit of spunk and can be a bit unpredictable which was fun.

Plot and Story Line
About A Vampire was quite a bit different than the other books in the series. It had a slightly different feel to the story that was new to me. And it was all due to the circumstances that Justin and Holly find themselves in. Now I normally can't stand the whole one of the main characters being married, but somehow this story worked for me. I honestly didn't know how this book would turn out, but Lynsay Sands always wins me over and she accomplished it with About A Vampire. I don't want to spoil this story too much, but I will say the way that the story turns out was quite perfect, especially when it comes to Gia and her story. I really liked the friendship between Holly and Gia. Despite how different they are from each other, they become like sisters pretty quickly and I loved seeing that bond. The actual romance had quite a bit of conflict, and it turns the reader upside down. And oh the antics with the side characters...most especially Lucian. Lucian is always a favorite and boy did I love him in this book. And the tricks that Bricker's friends play on him is just priceless, because he totally had it coming to him. But I so was on Holly's side in this book, she was just an easy character to love and what a situation to be put in. She tries to make her marriage work, even knowing that its going to be really tough for her. Having to hear every thought her husband has, and just trying to not let it affect her. It was interesting seeing Justin and Holly come together. Because for most of the story, its more building a more emotional intimacy and the physical development of their relationship is focused with the dream mating. It had a love triangle feel to it, but it had a different tone to it than your average love triangle. But boy was this book quite a story and it really worked me well through the emotions. Love how Sands can do that for me and make me fall in love along the way despite my reservations. Bravo!!
The Cover
Out of all the covers...I LOVE this one. It has such a paranormal feel to it, but still sexy too. Love the sunset over the cemetery.
Overall View
About A Vampire is a story that tests the boundaries of love and is packed with heartfelt emotion and a conflict to keep the reader enthralled. ( )

I liked it. It was highly anticipated but I find myself pining for the heart racing pace that Leonius and his gang of hoodlums wreaked on this world. Without it the pace is just not...urgent. It also feels like the humor was lacking a bit. If I wasn't already so invested in this series I'm not sure it would have read so well. ( )
