A startling new vision of paranormal romance: When a human ventures into the world of vampires—a decadent milieu of blood-bonds and betrayal—she discovers that not all is what it seems. For Reyna Carpenter, giving up her body isn’t a choice. It’s survival. In a civilization laid waste by poverty and desperation, Reyna accepts a high-paying position with the wealthy and hungry vampire elite. Her new job is as the live-in blood escort for the intimidating, demanding, and devilishly handsome Beckham Anderson. He’s everything she expected from a vampire, except for one thing—he won’t feed off her. Reyna soon discovers that behind Beckham’s brooding, wicked façade lies a unique and complex man. And that, in a dark and divided world, she is more valuable than she ever would have believed. For with each passing night, Reyna can’t shake the sensation that it’s Beckham who’s afraid of her. Note: Reyna and Beckham’s story continues in Blood Match. ADD TO GOODREADS

I'm going to be honest and tell you that I struggle when reading/reviewing books where I know the story isn't complete going in. That little nugget of information tends to linger while I am reading and flavors how I see things.
That said, I can also admit that having finished Blood Type I am now anxiously waiting for Blood Match so that we can see what happens to Reyna and Becks next.
Blood Type is a lot of different things rolled into one story. Yes, it's a paranormal story (vampires), but there are also strong elements of personal intrigue, political maneuvering, and the beginnings
of a romance.
Set in an alternate reality, we meet our heroine Reyna as she is setting out to try to make things better for her family. The path she follows leads her to living with a mysterious vampire, Beckham. I liked Reyna, but there were elements of her personality that I struggled with; a lot of that may have been her age (she's 21). It was harder to get a read on Beckham as we only see him from Reyna's perspective. I would have definitely appreciated seeing parts of the story from his Point of View.
I enjoyed Blood Type and really want to know where the story is headed!
