Champion bull rider Cody Braddock has always loved the ladies. As a vampire, each time he brings a woman satisfaction, his strength grows!

But right now he’s thinking only about vengeance. His mission: to hunt down and destroy the one who murdered his beloved family.

Revenge, however, takes a detour when he meets sweet, passionate Miranda Rivers. She’s never experienced the big O, and she wants to—badly! How could any man—vamp or not—resist?

Yet the deeper Cody drinks of Miranda’s delicious charms, the more he craves. Only, Miranda wants more than just an eternity of hot sex. She wants Cody’s undead heart to beat again, just for her….

Add one vampire to one woman who is trying to outrun her sexy side. For spice, the story takes place in Skull Creek, Texas with a whole passel of other vampires. What do you get? Cody, by Kimberly Raye.

Now I have to admit, I love Kimberly Raye’s vampires. She writes quirky, sexy vamps that have issues, yet want love – even if they don’t know it yet. You can’t get these hunks out of your mind. Plus, she manages to bring back the other vampires from earlier books, weaving them together to create a story you won’t forget.

Miranda is every man’s desire – blonde hair, stacked, and legs that go on forever. Too bad her past is filled with poor decisions made by her mother and sisters. She’s not like them, but when she sees the hunky bull rider, she’s tempted to unleash her inner vixen. I liked that she’s afraid of him, but also intrigued. She wants to be with him, but she doesn’t want to lose herself in him. That’s a powerful thought. I also liked that Miranda was the one woman who manages to bring Cody from his boring existence. She makes him feel things. Again, powerful stuff.

And the sex scenes? Whew! Very hot. Although there were a few scenes that involved other partners in his past, you felt his passion for Miranda even when he’s not sure himself.

If you want a vampire story you won’t forget and a new series you’ll want to read from beginning to end, then you need to read Cody. I give this story 4 ½ cherries.


  1. I’ve been a huge Kimberly Raye fan from the beginning of her career. I’m never disappointed in her books.
