Review: Claimed by Zoe Winters

Book: Claimed
Blood Lust #2
Author: Zoe Winters
Paranormal, This is not the typical erotica genre that I review. There is sexual innuendo, some explicit language and some sex, however, it is not explicit erotica.


For a vampire, Anthony isn’t a picky eater, but he’s drawn to Charlee’s blood more than any other. Like a fine wine saved for a special occasion, he’s denied himself this pleasure. But one night, high from the potent magical blood of another, he claims his prize and loses control. Ashamed of almost killing the one woman who means anything to him, he wipes her memory of the event. When Charlee awakens with complete amnesia, Anthony is the only one who can clean up the mess he’s made.

"Even in today's age, women still trusted beautiful monsters because they couldn't believe anything evil could ever be wrapped up so pretty."

This is the second story in the Blood Lust series, also novella length and a really quick read. You can check out my review Kept (Blood Lust #1) here. For such a short story, the plot and character development was great. There is an in-depth glimpse into the paranormal world, their mythology, hierarchy and organization here.

"'I swear to God, Anthony, if you don't get out of my head...'
'You'll what?'
She sighed. 'I'll be really annoyed.'
'I quiver in terror.'"

It was well written. There was witty banter and parts that were emotional. There was introspection about the nature of good and evil. I love that even though this is a short story, it makes you stop and think about morality and what is right and wrong and where do we draw the line? It might seem like a quick light read, but there's depth here. I really enjoy that. There's also romance and action. It really had everything, except explicit sex. There was no explicit sex. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun, slightly dark paranormal series.

You can try out Kept (the prequel to Claimed) for free by going to Zoe's website.
