Out for Blood – Mike Walker

Summary:

National Revealer’s Clark Kelly carved out his killer career as Hollywood’s most-feared gossip columnist by exploiting mankind’s most ancient vulnerability:

“Everyone’s got a secret…and someone’s dying to tell it!”

Clark never reveals his to-die-for secret!

NEWS FLASH:

Dude’s a vampire!

CUE SCARY MUSIC …our undead gossip guru flies the night skies to spy on Hollywood’s hottest stars—then inks about their bedroom kinks! Imagine our studly, urbane journalist jotting notes as he hovers outside Scarlett Johansson’s bedroom window, or peeks into Tom Cruise’s “bachelor pad.”

Star secrets…?

This vampire BITES!

And what’s sexier than vampires, ladies? Just ask smokin’ hot starlet/tabloid terror TayLo Logan—this Wild Child gets crazy with badboy Clark because his bite makes her blood boil!

Then it’s LIGHTS…CAMERA… ACTION! …But not in a good way: Vampire Boy and Tabloid Train Wreck TayLo unwittingly end up stars of a sizzling sex tape—destined for worldwide display on the notorious vampire fan sex site, FANGBANGING.COM.

Still, the duo’s beyond-the-grave love story simmers away as Clark rips the lid off a murder coverup—then discovers a murderous plot against TayLo!

DANGER!! Can Clark stop a stalker who wants to drain his lover dry? Or wreak revenge on TinselTown billion-heiress Roma Kane for her poisonous plot to paralyze TayLo—and her career? Can he foil a murder cabal so evil it feeds stars’ pets to coyotes?

AND THEN…talk about the plot thickening! Roma’s billionaire granddaddy, mogul Montague Kane, taking a breather from the nymphet “nannies” paid to play his naughty high-chair games, springs a back-stab surprise—buying out Clark’s beloved National Revealer.

Suddenly, “deadline” takes on a whole new meaning

Triggered by vengeful fury, Clark goes “rogue vampire!”

Evil is punished…and the sun shines once more when he creates a Hollywood happy ending that makes everyone (undeads included) a STAR!

Hold the front page! Because Clark Kelly’s…

Out For Blood!

My Review:

*** I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ***

My first thought when I started this book is that just from the style of writing, i could tell it was written by an older man with very strong links to Hollywood rather than someone who has sat and read gossip columns online. It’s a very dry humoured and cynical book and I LOVED it!

I’m not a huge gossip monger, but there are certain celebrities that I WILL read about because it makes me so thankful for having a relatively normal existence. Yeah, their money is enviable, but the sheer pressure that goes with it, no thanks.

The main character and narrator, Clark Kelly is brilliant. His tone is one of someone who is centuries old yet is still having a blast ‘living life’. Hollywood is the PERFECT place for him as he uses his talents for the greater good. To publish gossip about celebs. Not that a word of it isn’t true mind you, he has standards.

Then there’s TayLo. Blonde bombshell actress with a habit of partying a bit too hard. Until she and Clark get involved that is. She’s a surprise that one, this is no bimbo.

The support cast are just as brilliant as the leads. They are well rounded, realistic, and believable. The truly complement the main characters and the plot throughout so well, I found myself wanting to know more about them. In particular, the rakish Damon Strutt.

If you love reading celeb gossip, whether it’s to make fun of them or to truly know what they are up to, this is certainly the book for you. If you want a new take on vampires co-existing with humans, look no further.
