This captivating book sets the stage for a series that I cannot wait to read! Blood Link tells the story of Sergeant Samantha Elliot, who in one night loses almost all of her military friends and coworkers, including her newly formed love interest Jay "Cowboy" Evans, in a brutal attack. After 30 years of mourning, Sam is on her deathbed, ready to meet her team in heaven. Much to her surprise though, Sam does not die. Instead, her former teammates, who were actually turned into vampires in the attack all those years ago, take control of Sam's care and transition her into a vampire as well. Sam's story continues as she reunites with her love interest Cowboy, comes to terms with her new form of existence and reclaims her place on her team.
There are so many things to love about this book! The concept itself, that of a vampire organization within the military, is so original and you can tell Lynne Scott is a veteran herself. I love the idea of a group of people that was a team before they were vampires and continue to strengthen those bonds once they become immortal. Can you imagine becoming a vampire? I think Scott does a wonderful job of describing all the Sam's reaction to her new life. It feels very realistic, not rushed. Sam is not blindly accepting of her new reality. She questions each part and goes through a whole range of emotions. And, who can resist the amazing chemistry between Sam and Cowboy?! The only aspect of the story that kept me from absolutely loving it was the number of characters made the story a little confusing initially. Once I got the characters straight, Sam's story absolutely sucked me in and I cannot wait to read about her and her vampire team in the next books of the series.
