Cover Reveal: Cashmere (Velvet trilogy #2) by Temple West
Today Temple West revealed the cover of her second book in the Velvet trilogy, titled Cashmere. I read the first book so long ago and I absolutely loved it. Velvet is a young adult book that is centered around Caitlin a human and Adrian who is a vampire. This is not your typical vampire tale and I loved that. I feel like I have been waiting forever for this book and now I can’t wait until February 14th 2017 which is the release date.
My review of Velvet was before this blog so down below I’ve included the Velvet book description and my review. Note I feel that my reviews have gotten a little better so please forgive the crude review below.
Velvet by Temple West
First rule of dealing with hot vampire bodyguards? Don’t fall in love.
After losing both her parents before age seventeen, aspiring designer Caitlin Holte feels like her whole world has been turned upside down, and that was before the terrifying encounter with a supernatural force. Then, she learns that her hot bad-boy neighbor, Adrian—who might have just saved her life—is actually a half-demon vampire.
Suddenly Caitlin is stuck with a vampire bodyguard who feels that the best way to protect her is to become her pretend boyfriend. Trouble is, Caitlin is starting to fall in love for real, while Adrian can never love a human. Caitlin trusts Adrian to keep her safe from his demon father, but will he be able to protect her heart?
Velvet was good! The book starts off with Caitlin moving to upstate New York to live with her Aunt and Uncle, whom she has never met, after her mom dies. There she meet Adrian, a vampire, and from there things cease to be normal as Caitlin enters the supernatural world.
What I Like:
In the earlier parts of this book I read Harry Potter and Star Wars references and Temple had me for sure, I loved it because I am such a nerd and we need to be represented. Caitlin and Adrian are the main characters and the banter between them is flawless and I think that they complement each other very well. Temple did such a good job with them, Caitlin didn’t fall for Adrian right-away, she got to know him before she fell in love. Caitlin wasn’t like “woo broding hot vampire guy” and instantly fell in love she got to really know him. Caitlin just lost her mother and she is sad, angry and grieving and I feel that her attitude is closer to realism than it would be in other novels. As for Adrian, love him. Adrian is smart, kind and funny. He doesn’t really remind you of a vampire, I have my opinion on why but I don’t want to spoil it. Another reason why you should read Velvet is because the whole vampire lore is unique in and you will love this new twist on vampires.
Overall 4 stars
