Blog Tour: Review of Slay Me by Louise Cypress

Series: The Puritan Coven Series, Book 3
Release date:  Feb. 19, 2019

Kyle Logan has been a 16-year-old bad boy for three years, ever since he became a vampire. After a stint at the rehab center run by the Brothers of Temperance, Kyle has finally kicked his blood addiction. Now, he's back in high school with one goal in mind: stay clean so he can grow up and become an animal-rights activist.

Cassandra Xander wants two things in 10th grade: a car and the chance to attend a traditional high school. She loved being homeschooled growing up, especially since her family moved every six months for Helsing Incorporated, but now that her mother is founding a slayer training academy in La Jolla, California, Cassandra is excited by the opportunity to attend La Jolla Cove High.

When Kyle witnesses Cassandra give a verbal reckoning to a dog owner who leaves her beagle locked in a sweltering car, Kyle makes his move. He loves that Cassandra is smart, intense, and willing to break rules. But Cassandra has zero experience dating and isn't sure a relationship with a hot-tempered vampire is a good place to start - especially when she discovers Kyle's secret ability.

Kyle works hard to master his emotions and make all of Cassandra's high school dreams come true. Just when their romance brightens both of their lives, Kyle's past draws him back into darkness. The only way forward for these high school sweethearts is to slay or pay.

Slay Me is the third and final book in the Puritan Coven series.  This one is Cassie's story.  It picks up pretty much right after the events of the second book, Hunt Me.  Cassie is a home schooled sophomore trying to navigate her way through public school for the first time.  Kyle is a vegan vampire just trying to stay on the straight and narrow.

For the most part, I enjoyed this  one, but it wasn't my favorite of the series.  It had great humor and the same fun characters as the other books. I did love Cassie's awkwardness when it came to dating.  What I didn't love was Kyle.  I thought his vegan, environmental, PETA like attitude was a bit over the top.  That part, i could have done without.  Despite that, this was a good wrap up to the series.  The narrators once again did a great job of narrating the story.  I definitely recommend this series.
