Author: Jessica Sims

Release Date: December 29, 2015
I received this book from Simon & Schuster
, in exchange for an honest review.
Summary: Lindsey Hughes loves antiques and couldn’t be happier to make a living in the estate sale business. But when her assistant accidentally buys an entire estate without her approval, Lindsey is forced to clean up the mess herself.
Lindsey travels to the newly purchased, age-old house in Venice, Italy, and soon discovers more than she (never) bargained for. While digging through the hoarder’s trove that fills every floor, she finds a secret staircase behind a wall that leads to a strange coffin…with an even stranger inhabitant.
Vampire Rand FitzWulf has been in his coffin for 600 years. But now that he’s awake, he’s ravenous, and there’s a delicious-smelling woman with a rare blood type in his basement. Luckily, Lindsey has more to offer than blood: she agrees to travel throughout Europe with Rand to help him get revenge on the one who turned him. But as the unlikely pair grows closer, will the billionaire vampire be overtaken by his thirst for blood—or his thirst for love?
Thoughts: Going into this book - for some reason I thought this was a continuation of Midnight Liaison (which is a good series). But it seems to be a stand alone. Here we have new setting and new characters, very refreshing. Lindsey & Rand are a fantastic pair. He is quite cheeky. I loved the curiosity he has to being in the modern world. Between a Vamp and a Hard Place is a great read. I definitely recommend it, especially if your look for a good vampire story.
Score: 4 Stars
