Book Review: Fangs for the Memories by Kathy Love

My thoughts:

This is the first book in the Young Brothers series. Fangs for the Memories tells the story of Rhys Young, the oldest vampire of the Young brothers who saves Jane from an attempted rape. He was about to head home but was attacked by another vampire and as a result of this attack, he woke up with an amnesia. Sebastian, Rhys brother upon learning of this situation, asked Jane to stay until his brother recovers from amnesia.

A vampire with amnesia? I liked this book and the love story of Rhys and Jane. I love the dialogue especially when Rhys is talking to Sebastian. I was laughing every time they're together. I enjoyed reading this book though I have to mention one thing I didn't like in this book. The sex scenes are so over the top - never ending. I've read tons of books with mild to wild sex. Most of the time, they're needed in the story but here, I didn't think it was needed. I was already enjoying the story! I had to skim a couple of sex scenes because I got tired of reading them. 

Overall, this is recommended for paranormal romance lovers but if you are not into non-stop sex, then probably you shouldn't read this book. 

About the book:

Oh, Brother!

I'm watching my brother swagger through our New York City apartment...smiling. Rhys, the detached, surly man who turned brooding into an art form. But he's not brooding now. No, he's practically threatening to pistol whip me for shaking hands with the beautiful, half-dressed creature named Jane who just tried to sneak out of his bedroom. Weird. Brother Grim has a sex drive?
That's not all that has me freaked out. Something terrible happened last night, something that made Rhys break his own rule and save the life of a mortal. Trouble is he doesn't remember anything from the past two hundred years. Like that he's a vampire, not a Regency viscount with an English accent.

All I know is this mortal woman has managed to touch my brother's frozen heart, and I, Sebastian Young, will do whatever it takes to help him keep her...  - Amazon
About the author:

I started writing romances when I was in junior high. The heroines were my friends, and the heroes were guys you may have heard of such as the Beatles, the Monkees and other various rock stars and actors. I even wrote a romance where Steven Tyler of Aerosmith was the hero and worked at a carnival, which I think is pretty accurate. If he hadn't made it as a rock star, he'd definitely be a carnie. I was the heroine, of course.

I was also lucky enough to have a best friend who also loved to write. We spend many nights laughing and plotting and writing our wonderful, romantic and completely implausible love stories. (Except for the Steven Tyler story, which as I said, was completely plausible.)

Even though I loved to write, I never really believed I would get published. After all, in the small mill town where I grew up in the mountains of Maine, we have a saying, "You can't get there from here." And that was how I felt about the publishing world.... Read more
