Review; The Slaughtered Lamb Bookstore and Bar by Seana Kelly

Last year I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of the paranormal fantasy novel The Slaughtered Lamb Bookstore and Bar by Seana Kelly through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
Welcome to The Slaughtered Lamb Bookstore and Bar. I’m Sam Quinn, the werewolf book nerd in charge. I run my business by one simple rule: Everyone needs a good book and a stiff drink, be they vampire, wicche, demon, or fae. No wolves, though. Ever. I have my reasons.

I serve the supernatural community of San Francisco. We’ve been having some problems lately. Okay, I’m the one with the problems. The broken body of a female werewolf washed up on my doorstep. What makes sweat pool at the base of my spine, though, is realizing the scars she bears are identical to the ones I conceal. After hiding for years, I’ve been found.

A protection I’ve been relying on is gone. While my wolf traits are strengthening steadily, the loss also left my mind vulnerable to attack. Someone is ensnaring me in horrifying visions intended to kill. Clive, the sexy vampire Master of the City, has figured out how to pull me out, designating himself by personal bodyguard. He’s grumpy about it, but that kiss is telling a different story. A change is taking place. It has to. The bookish bartender must become the fledgling badass.

I’m a survivor. I’ll fight fang and claw to protect myself and the ones I love. And let’s face it, they have it coming.

My Thoughts on the Book
The Slaughtered Lamb Bookstore and Bar was a fun and engaging book. The plot was well written and kept me on my toes, which is a bonus. I also found several of the characters had depth to them and I especially liked the protagonist and her vampire boyfriend. The book also deals with the aftermath of rape in a well-written manner.
