Venom & Vanilla; Shannon Mayer

Title: Venom & Vanilla
Author; Shannon Mayer
Genre: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance

Successful Seattle baker Alena Budrene doesn’t want to die. But when she’s infected with a lethal virus spread by supernatural beings, her only chance for recovery is to make a deal with the devil—or in this case, a warlock.
Though he saves her life, it looks nothing like the life she once knew—and neither does she. Alena is a new breed of “Supe” no one has ever seen before. Even the supernatural police don’t know what she is. Now exiled to the northern side of the Wall, which marks the divide between humans and Supes, Alena is thrust into a dark and magical new world.
But just as she begins to adjust to all things supernatural, she realizes that her transformation is the least of her worries—and it was no accident. She was chosen…to be killed by a Greek hero trying to make a name for himself once more.
Alena was brought up to be subservient, preferring creating to fighting, and vanilla and honey to blood. But that was then. Now, to survive, she must stand up for herself—and this time she’s got fangs. But will she be ready to use them?


Hello Fellow Readers, 

So, I really liked the first chapter of this book. We meet Alena who unfortunately is dying, yet she still remains true to herself despite her husband already entangled with another women and selling off her prized bakery. Alena seemed like a strong character who stuck to her morals, then she was turned into a "supe" and everything just got incredible silly. I couldn't take anything seriously which affected any attachment that I had to the main character and the plot. Honestly, there is not much else I can say about this book besides the fact that it just was not my cup of coffee.
