Brief Summary: Oliver the newest of the Scanguards Vampires is having some difficulties adjusting to his new diet. Attempting to fight his desire for fresh human blood Oliver becomes increasingly agitated and irritable. One night Oliver runs into a human woman, Ursula, who has her own vampire issues she must face. Ursula also possess something that places her in danger of not only Oliver but every vampire that discovers her secret. Oliver must learn to control his hunger for both Ursula’s blood and body.
Each character has a significant role in the plot of the novel and is fully developed through their own book, although it isn’t necessary to read the Scanguards Vampire series in order. The action scenes are straight out of an action movie with Oliver coming to the rescue as a superhero. The action scenes are also needed to balance out the steamy scenes between Oliver and Ursula as he attempts to help her rediscover something she believes she has lost. Oliver’s Hunger made me smile and believe in love even though you may have to fight against other people and yourself to get it. I will definitely be reading the rest of the Scanguards series when it continues.
Quotes: “You have no idea what’s going on inside on me!”
“Desperation made her say words she thought she’d never utter. ‘I’ll sleep with you if you help me.’”
Overall: Oliver’s Hunger was a great read for me because of the action and romance between Oliver and Ursula. I think that Ursula was a perfect match for Oliver in that she is able to comfort him and care for him in ways that his vampire family are unable. Oliver's Hunger receives 5 stakes from me. I have always loved Tina Folsom’s books and the Scanguards Vampire series especially. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves vampires and romance.
