Anita Blake is small, dark, and dangerous. Her turf is the city of St. Louis. Her job: re-animating the dead and killing the undead who take things too far. But when the city’s most powerful vampire asks her to solve a series of vicious slayings, Anita must confront her greatest fear—her undeniable attraction to master vampire Jean-Claude, one of the creatures she is sworn to destroy…
“Most hatred is based on fear, one way or another. Yeah. I wrapped myself in anger, with a dash of hate, and at the bottom of it all was an icy center of pure terror.”
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I had a lot of fun while reading it and I liked Anita a lot more than I thought I would. I went into Guilty Pleasures not expecting to like it because it isn’t really my thing. The only reason I read it was because I have heard really good things about it and wanted to try something new. I was told that this series is very plot driven and I am more of a character driven person. I also heard that after book ten, the series goes into a direction that is more my style so I thought that I would have to push through the first ten books or so. I didn’t have to push through this book at all and if the next nine books are like this one, I won’t have to push through those either. I will be continuing the series with the next installment The Laughing Corpse.
