Teren’s a fourth generation mixed vampire with more human qualities. Yet he still possesses typical vampire traits.
I was sure there would be some difficulties ahead of us, and more “big” issues for us to tackle.
This story delves into the differences between full vampires and mixed breeds. Essentially showing how humans don’t need to fear these mixed vampires.
I liked how SC Stephens humanized Teren’s character. I liked that she didn’t take the typical vampire approach. She was smart and clever with the way she used the typical traits while also curbing them to fit into the story. I enjoyed her approach regarding certain myths about vampires. She added humor to ease the fears and compared her characters to those in the Addam’s Family. I liked how her vampires didn’t conform to the traditional vampire myths.
The new generation approach was fascinating. Inserting the human aspect allowed for a more passionate read. It was easier to connect with these characters while visualizing the human side of Teren.
I love SC Stephens approach at writing the sex scenes. Instead of going into graphic detail about the physical aspect she spent time on the emotional connection by choosing words to express how they felt when they were intimate.
I think it’s okay to compare some of similar familiar vampire traits to Twilight. Twilight helped eased the concept of vampires and humans falling in love. This bridged the gap by diluting the vampire traits with human traits.
Every stage in their relationship held danger and concern. When these two characters weren’t being physical they did have some situations that came about allowing for some action.
Piper Goodeve narrates and performs all the characters in Conversion. I happened to like her performance. I thought she was convincing. In fact, she enhanced my reading experience.
I always purchase the ebook and audiobook together so I can follow along. Piper read the words word perfectly with no outside disturbances.
Good start to a new-to-me paranormal romance series!
This book was cute, fun & exciting. I liked Teren. I liked Emma. And I really liked the both of them together.
Teren's family had quite the characters in it & provided some great moments in the story. The bad guy part was unexpected but the intrigue surrounding him/what he thought his life mission should be was welcome & makes me even more curious to see who else the family might encounter in the future. And that ending... #SweetAsCanBe
The only big negatives I had with the story centered around descriptions. I wish there were way less details about the rooms in houses, the outdoor/wildlife, the clothes, etc & loads more about their sex life. I need me some racier bedroom antics. PLEASE.
Excited to see what's in store for Teren & Emma in book two of the series, Bloodlines. I wanna hear the pitter-patter of little part-vampire feet! :)
Side Note: I understand that her sister was scarred from the accident but I didn't think it was necessary for Emma to say how "horrific" (her words) she looked each & every time she talked about her. It was a bit redundant.
One day running late, she smacks right into Teren Adams, and proceeds to spill her coffee all over him. She apologizes profusely, and hands him her business card so she can pay for his cleaning bill. Mortified she flees to work as fast as she can.
Teren Adams is a handsome man and a very gentle soul,he is also a successful writer, and he likes Emma immediately, calls her that same afternoon and buys her a cup of coffee and they start seeing one another. Teren loves how Emma, is and he feels like he can be himself with her and winds up giving himself away after 3 weeks of dating. Teren has a secret, and he is nervous to tell Emma, as he has already developed feelings for her and does not want to lose her.
This book was well written, had a good story line, a little bit of angst between Teren and his family members, on occasion, as they love him but pressure him too much; you will see why as the book progresses. This book was fast-paced, and Emma was really a likeable character with her attitude about everything and the way she sees thing, and it totally entertains Teren. There are some good sex scenes between them and Teren is everything that Emma could ever wish for, and he feels the same about her. They have a rough spot after she visits his home the first time, but luckily they get back together.
Something terrible happens to them however, which will have your stomach tied in knots and your heart racing - it changes the whole dynamic of Teren and Emma's life. Will they be able to live with what happens? You will have to read it to find out! Will they have their happily ever after- you will have to read it to find out!!
AND-remember you know this book is going to be good before you even read it-after all this is the brilliant author that brought us Kellan Kyle! And you will love this trilogy of books every bit as much as that one. I know I did.
I gave this book 5***** brilliant stars because this book was awesome, and look for ward to telling you about the other two books as well. Happy Reading!

I decided yesterday that I fancied a reread and boy I'm so glad I did. Although the overall story is quite slow moving to start with the last few chapters really packed a punch. I loved Teren and Emma the first time around and my feelings for them have only grown even more now.
I'm not particularly into paranormal romance but this series is really worth reading and is superbly written.
I'm now off to reread book 2 - can't get enough of the Adams family!
Whilst it starts out steady, once it gets going it is full of unexpected twists and surprises and it really ramps it up heading towards the end. I had theories on certain characters and I was way off. I couldn't help comparing it to Twilight on occasion very early on, but at the end of the day we all know the mythology and there couldn't not be the odd similarity. But on the whole it's different and In some respects I actually preferred Emma and Teren to Bella and Edward; they're more mature and their growing relationship isn't full of angst and woe, it's touching, fun and sexy with just the right amount of tension.
There's no painful cliffhanger, but there's room for much more and has confirmed that S. C Stephens is a versatile author with a gift of creating fabulous characters whose journeys you become invested in. I would definitely recommend and look forward to more because Teren stole my heart and is wonderful human-vampire being.
To explain I did enjoy it however I have recently read a lot of better paranormal romances. Teren is a sweety, yes a vampire/human hybrid who is a sweety!! This is probably where I had an issue. I think most people have in their minds that vampires should have a menacing side! Teren, until the end anyway, didn't really display this side.
Anyway to the book itself. Emma bumps into, literally, Teren and after he rings her a relationship commences. It isn't until a little while into the relationship during a make out session that she discovers what he really is, a human who is a 'little bit vampire'. After this Emma gets to meet his vampire great gran, bit vampire gran, bit more human than vampire mum and completely human dad. Unfortunately this visit brings about a relatively big secret about Teren's little bit vampire side.
In this book there are no annoying side stories distracting from their romance as the story is written completely from Emma's point of view. The end of the book, around the last 20/15%, I have to say, was fantastic however. It was completely unexpected for me and makes me intrigued as to where the story will go in the second part of this trilogy as i'm wondering if this part of the story will contain possible repercussions!
It's a sweet romance, well worth a read but be warned, do not expect a vampire in the true sense of the word. Think more human with a taste for blood on occasions!
