Publisher's Summary

Skye Morrison has a lot in common with today's college graduates: she's neck deep in student loan debt and desperate for a better-paying job. For four years the nightlife of Austin, Texas (home of Skye's alma mater), has satiated her thirst for good music, a revamp in fashion, and men - especially local musician Jameson Doyle, but her spot as a waitress at Drop Kick Dan's bar isn't going to cut the slack. A personal life troubled by a hounding ex only makes matters worse. Skye was never the damsel in distress type, but when an unexpected public shouting match with her ex turns physical, a savior disguised as a heavenly, gorgeous Irishman comes to her rescue. Archer Rhys, a businessman with a lot to offer, doesn't exactly sweep Skye off her feet, but she can't help but to be captivated by his ravenous good looks. When Archer makes Skye a lucrative job offer as his personal assistant for his new downtown Austin club, The Mausoleum, she quickly finds out that she may have gotten more than she bargained for.
In this breakout novel, J.L. McCoy takes the reader on an indulgent descent into a modern-day counterculture of nighttime extravagances. Close your eyes, succumb to intense passion, sip a Vampire's Kiss, and let the pounding of the club music overtake you. With animated detail, you'll find yourself on an unimaginable journey deep into the lair and grasp of Archer Rhys and his mind games. Distracted by Jameson's charm and blinded by Archer's allure and generous paycheck, Skye's new life invokes the reader's empathy as she's surrounded by a whirlwind of desire, deceit, and even death. Blood of the Son - this isn't your little sister's vampire novel.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The voice actress has a lovely accent, but the timing is all wrong, parts sound rushed and frenetic, other parts aren't as bad - but the weirdly fast pace really doesn't go with the beautiful southern American accent. The pauses in the narration are also in odd places. It just doesn't sound right - which is a shame as I really like these books.

I've tried several times to get into it, but it just isn't happening.
