Book 1, Blood Type
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
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.

5 multiplied times infinity stars...
First. When Kyla and team chose to add me to the ARC Squad, I literally lost my mind. I mean winning the lottery, rubbing the lamp and finding a genie, & the hottest guy in the world paying off all my debts all rolled into one “you’ve been selected email”, I. LOST. MY. MIND. EXCITED.
I seriously love, devour, read, & re-read everything of her’s. Her books are PHENOMENAL and so well written. The character development so legit and real. I even message her about secondary characters. And she responds. I. Love. Me. Some. KA Linde. Books.
But, please know that this review is on an early copy but if it was less than 5 stars I’d still be honest. Even though I flipping love her stuff.
Second. But more importantly. Blood Type. Just stop reading this and go start the book. Seriously. I won’t be offended. Staaahp, open, click, whatevs. Start. This. Book.
You’re still reading? Ok. Here goes. Some are probably thinking...
Don’t usually read paranormal? Welp. Me either.
Don’t usually care about vampires? Ditto
Kinda over the world is coming to an end by means of greed etc? Completely agree.
Rest assured I feel the same way and this book, this story, these characters... I can’t even come up with a word to describe how fan-f*cking-tastic Blood Type is!!! I wish I could go back to yesterday and call in sick so I could devote the entire day to uninterrupted gluttony, devouring this book.
Now, how to say enough to get you to read it with no spoilers. Hmmmmm. Tricky. Tricky.
That’s hard. Remember I mentioned I didn’t normally read paranormal (I love me some BDB, Mercy Thompson, Charlie Davidson, but other than those 3 series, I usually pass) so. While saying that, agreeing to be on the arc squad means I have to read every book she writes, right? Even ones I normally wouldn’t. I went into this book knowing the writing would be EXCELLENT, knowing I love her stuff, figuring I’d tough through so I’d meet my obligations on a para gig, paying forward waiting in Sav’s story to come out in May. I went into this book with very little plot or blurb knowledge. I hadn’t even read the general synopsis on the ‘back cover’. Well. Going in blind worked. This story has it all. Sucked me in.
Meet Reyna, beloved sister to two hardworking Brothers, in a society that deems her near useless.
Meet Visage, a company providing a life source to vampires. Think Match.com meets a fertility clinic. So. Basically. You can apply to be a donor and they (Visage) matches up the human with a vampire of their blood type to feed. They pay better than any other job out there.
Meet Beckham. Vampire. Matches with Reyna.
Know a couple things going in.
You WILL fall in love with Beckham.
You WILL adore Reyna.
You will want the 2nd book immediately.
You will NOT regret reading this and if you haven’t already you will Buy all her other books* *start with Brody or the Avoiding series, signed sincerely, a tip from a fan ;)
There’s steamy, hot parts and endearing sweet parts. And heartbreaking plot twists. Roll with it.
Please note this is book 1 in a trilogy. It will end in a cliffhanger. Book 2 is due around 6/26 and 3 around 8/21.
If you like legit heroes and chemistry. This is the book for you. There is so much more I want to say but don’t want to spoil it for anyone!!!

So good! I never wanted it to end!
Freaking amazing!!! Becks... omg. I love him! I devoured this book. PNR is not my normal read but this book was everything. If you don’t think vampires are for you, please give this book a shot, I promise you’ll love it!
A whole new world of vampires
5 stars for - Blood Type - the first book in a new paranormal romance series by K.A. Linde. I was blown away by how utterly unique and exciting Linde's spin on the vampire world was. I do want to give those who need it forewarning though, that with this only being the first of three planned books it ends in a cliffhanger of epic proportions.
Reyna Carpenter was the youngest in her happy family of five but after her parents died she always felt like a burden to her older brothers. Reyna decides to take matters into her own hands and help out the only way she knows how and applies for a job as a blood escort since she can't qualify for any other work. Reyna's only thoughts were that the money she will make for the temporary position will help her and her brothers afford their very meager apartment and minimal food with little if any being leftover. What she never in a million years would expect is an exclusive offer to be placed permanently in a new program with an executive at Visage that comes with so many bells and whistles and a steep pay increase but the only drawback is she can't go back home to tell her brothers and she must decide in the next handful of minutes or the offer expires.
Beckham Anderson is one of the senior officials within Visage - a corporation run by vampires. Visage technically is the company that runs the world and Beckham sits on the executive level of that company. Beckham is a man with many layers who we know very little about, he is cold and calculating for so much of the book you have no idea how you feel about him. Then seemingly out of no where with about thirty percent or so of the book left it was game over and I firmly found myself on #TeamBecks!
Do yourself a favor an READ. THIS. BOOK! So much mystery, danger and Linde's signature angsty romance are all mixed together to take you on one heck of a journey like never before. I promise you that you've never read a vampire romance like this before and it will leave you breathless and on the edge of your seat until the very last page!
