[ARC REVIEW] How to Elude a Vampire by Alice Winters

About the book

How To Elude A Vampire
(VRC: Vampire Related Crimes #2)
by Alice Winters

Publication Date: April 16th 2020

When the vampire stalking me sent me a letter, I was prepared for my new life with the man I love to get thrown into chaos. But as the days stretch on and nothing happens, I become determined not to allow that monster to rule my life, and decide that Marcus and I will move on. We can’t always allow the past to haunt us. If that includes pestering Marcus and harassing my fellow detectives, they’d better learn to love it, because I’m not going anywhere even if they like to remind me I’m the only human working in a department filled with vampires. But Marcus loves me for who I am, even if he’s not crazy about the cute pet names I call him like McBitey. Being with him is more than I could have dreamed, and even with the trials thrown in our way, he never fails to make me smile.

When Finn joined the VRC, I never expected how everything would change. Now that he’s the brightest part of my days, I’m unsure of how I existed without him. Before Finn and I can settle into our new life together, we’re called in as lead detectives when a body is found in the river, and the case soon hits closer to home than we anticipated. I want to be by Finn’s side to keep him safe, but at the same time, Finn’s fighting for the freedom he’s always wanted after being forced to live a life of fear. What I do know is that my future is with Finn, no matter what happens.

How to Elude a Vampire is the second in the VRC series and contains a display of manly prowess that doesn’t go as desired, reluctant bonding with a new pet, interfering with a snarky Russian’s love life, misuse of office supplies, a vampire with a killer fashion sense but very little game, a total lack of ancient kung fu powers, a feisty human who almost always gets his way and the possessive vampire who adores him.


~ ARC won through a giveaway and I’m in no way obligated to write a review… but I want to lol

I loved and adored book one “How to Vex a Vampire”. It was the first book I gave five stars to in a very long time and I wasn’t sure if “How to Elude a Vampire” would be able to reach the same height… It was even BETTER than the first one. How am I supposed to rate this one if I gave book one five stars? I guess I’ll give this one 5.5 stars out of 5?

I absolutely loved it. It made me laugh and cry from laughing and it make me cry cry. This book was a mix of hilarious and serious moments and I loved it.

Also I’m kind of giddy because I actually was right with my guess who the evil vampire was. My guess wasn’t actually based on any facts. I just didn’t like the character so I wanted that character to be evil lol but let me tell you, totally not obvious who it was. I was actually shocked that I was right, I just didn’t expect that it would actually happen. Let’s move on before I accidently give any clues about who this character might be.

We also got a new character in this book. I was equal parts annoyed and in love with that particular character and can’t wait to see more about him.

Then, of course, Marcus and Finn. I love those two and their relationship. They hold a special place in my heart together with Sloane and Dex from the Thirds series by Charlie Cochet.

By the way, I got this arc yesterday and I have already read it twice. It’s really good, guys. If you loved the first one, you will absolutely love How to Elude a Vampire as well.

Now if anyone would please be so kind to tell me that Alice Winters is already writing book three… PLEASE?

Rating: 5.5 stars
