Review ~ Awkward Holidays (Ward of the Vampire #3) by Kallysten

Trapped in the Ward mansion with a reluctant and standoffish host – a vampire she should be afraid of but can’t help being attracted to – Angelina is preparing herself for grim, lonely holidays.

When her parents unexpectedly decide to visit, the situation, far from improving, only grows more complicated. They look forward to visiting New York with her, but how can she explain that she’s unable to leave the mansion? For that matter, what will they say when they realize she lives with a millionaire?

A hastily concocted excuse smoothes things over, but now Angelina finds herself having to work closely with Morgan Ward. It wouldn’t be so bad if Morgan was as pleasant to her as he is to her parents, but his mercurial moods leave her confused and frustrated. It doesn’t help that he seems no closer to finding a way for her to leave his house.

The New Year brings change with a startling kiss and an even more surprising guest… or is it more of the same?
If you haven’t yet read the first two installments, Ward of the Vampire and My Reluctant Warden, then I recommended starting at the beginning. These should be read in order; to obtain a complete understanding of the complex relationship between Morgan and Angelina.

Kallysten took a slightly different approach with Awkward Holiday. With Angelina's parents in town, it put additional stress on an already overstressed situation. The author crafted believable scenes to this reader satisfaction. Using the inconvenient arrival of Angelina’s parents to naturally progress the story and allow the audience to gain some {a teeniest bit} insight into the mysterious Mr. Ward.

I love that this author has twisted this paranormal lover’s perceptive. She has given me hope that maybe the vampire isn’t an overwritten character.
