Book Review: Linked by Judy Serrano

Title: Linked
Author: Judy Serrano
Genre: Suspense/Thriller with a Twist

Daphne Foster is a substitute teacher stuck in an English class, waiting for that dreaded parent-teacher conference. With much preparation and anxiety, she encounters the unforgettable Charlie Cross. His charm and good looks, win her over but rumors of his involvement with organized crime make his continued disappearances disturbing.
In walks Heathcliff Vanderpool, creating a love triangle of unusual sorts. Unknown to Daphne, Heathcliff and Charlie are old friends: Older than she could have imagined. With Charlie away on business, Daphne and Heathcliff discover a passion between them lying beneath the surface. As their souls link, pulling away from Charlie becomes next to impossible. Will his involvement in organized crime consume them both before she’s able to get free? When you become “linked,” the choice may not be your own.

As I have mentioned before, I am not a fan of the supernatural genre. But having read Judy Serrano before, I was looking forward to this one.
Daphne has it all covered as she begins her career as a teacher. However, when she meets Charlie everything changes. He is everything that is off limits to her - a student's parent and more than that, a vampire. She embarks on a torrid affair with him throwing caution to the winds.
When she meets Heathcliff, she realises that she may have much more in common with him.
I love the suspense in the story and of course against what I normally read, it was interesting to read about vampires and werewolves as the story is so well written.
A bits of the book drag and these could well be removed but all in all it was a good read and will be enjoyed by all supernatural fans.
