Bad To The Bone by Jeri Smith-Ready

Book Blurb:
If you’re just joining us, welcome to radio station WVMP, “The Lifeblood of Rock ’n’ Roll.” Con-artist-turned-station-owner Ciara Griffin manages an on-air staff of off-the-wall DJs—including her new boyfriend Shane McAllister—who really sink their teeth into the music of their ‘Life Time” (the era in which they became vampires). It’s Ciara’s job to keep the undead rocking, the ratings rolling, and the fan base alive—without missing a beat.

For Halloween, WVMP is throwing a bash sure to raise the dead. They’ve got cool tunes, hot costumes, killer cocktails—what could go wrong? Well, for starters, a religious firebrand ranting against the evils of the occult preempts the station’s midnight broadcast. Then, when Ciara tracks down the illegal transmission, the broadcast tower is guarded by what appears to be…a canine vampire? And behind it all is a group of self-righteous radicals who think vampires suck (and are willing to stake their lives on it).

Now Ciara must protect the station while struggling with her own murky relationship issues, her best friend’s unlikely romance with a fledgling vampire, and the nature of her mysterious anti-holy powers. To make it to New Year’s in one piece, she’ll need to learn a few new tricks.…

Bad to the Bone by Jeri Smith-Ready is the second installment to Urban Fantasy WVMP Radio series, and will release on May 19th. I had been anticipating this book since I finished reading the first book in this series, Wicked Game.

Like its predecessor, Bad to the Bone moved along at a fast, exciting pace with plenty of witty humor. You will get your fix for the hot, sexy vampires at WVMP, with plenty of sit on the edge of your seat suspense. There are some sad moments and some very surprising developments in the story that you would of never saw coming.

The ending happens fast, with so many questions being answered but we are left with a few new intriguing ones. So you’ll be left with the need for the next installment. I, for one, can't wait.

The next book, not yet titled, in the series will be out in 2010. Jeri has several free tie-in short stories on her website, maybe they can help tie you over until the next book.

One of my favorite things about the WVMP Radio series, are the playlists that Jeri creates to help set mood of the book. You can download the playlists from her website. If you like, play the songs along with the chapters you are reading, see if this is an experience you might enjoy.
