Review: Conversion (Conversion #1) by S.C. Stephens

Title: Conversion
Series: Conversion #1
Author: S.C. Stephens
Publication Date: September 3rd, 2013 

Emma is content. She's got a promising career in front of her, great friends, and a pretty amazing family. But her love life has been a little lacking lately. That's when fate steps in, and she crashes into a tall, dark and handsome man—Teren Adams.

He’s single, successful, an extraordinary gentleman, but he’s also secretive. And some of his secrets are more unusual than most people’s. For instance, he’s a “little bit” vampire. He has fangs, incredible hearing, unbelievable speed, and, on occasion, he enjoys drinking a steaming cup of blood. But he’s also very much alive. He has a heartbeat, loves steak as well as cappuccinos, and has no problems walking around during the day.

Since Teren acts human the majority of the time, the pros far outweigh the cons in Emma’s book. But when it becomes apparent that Teren’s condition is much more serious than he first lets on, and that being in a relationship with him requires more sacrifices than most would be willing to make, will Emma stay? Is love enough to compensate for a life that will never be anywhere near normal? But then again...what's normal anyway?

About the Author:

S.C. Stephens is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who enjoys spending every free moment she has creating stories that are packed with emotion and heavy on romance.

Her debut novel, Thoughtless, an angst-filled love triangle charged with insurmountable passion and the unforgettable Kellan Kyle, took the literary world by storm. Amazed and surprised by the response to the release of Thoughtless in 2009, more stories were quick to follow. Stephens has been writing nonstop ever since.

In addition to writing, Stephens enjoys spending lazy afternoons in the sun reading fabulous novels, loading up her iPod with writer's block reducing music, heading out to the movies, and spending quality time with her friends and family. She currently resides in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her two equally beautiful children.

My Review:

I am a fan of paranormal stories and I was kind of looking for something different to read. That's how I ended up with picking this book instead of the Thoughtless series by S.C. Stephens. And it definitely didn't disappoint. The story is mostly light hearted and fun with quite a few comic scene and a somewhat unconventional but interesting romantic story :)

I have to say that I was intrigued from pretty much the get go. Emma is a fun character with some quirky traits and fun to be around. I loved getting to know her better and reading about her growing relationship with Teren. Teren is quite an interesting character in his own right. Which is to be expected considering he is somewhat of a vampire :D And he is quite hot ;) I loved reading how the couple overcomes the hurdles thrown their way :) And they just come out stronger together.

Apart from the easy feel of the book, there are few scenes where the action and suspense are on high speeds and will keep you on your toes. There are also few surprise thrown in the mix just to keep you interested ;)

So, in a few words, this is quite the compelling read :) If you are looking for a light hearted and fun romantic story with just a pinch of danger and suspense, this is definitely the book you are looking for :) I am actually probably gonna dive soon in the next book in the series as I am quite interested to find out what will happen next with Teren and Emma :)

P.S. I was listening to the audble version of the book and I have to say that it is quite good ;)
