Audiobook Blitz! Push and Pull by Emily Cyr

Push and Pull (Vampire Favors #1) by Emily Cyr
Genre: Adult Fiction (Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy)
Date Published: April 2, 2015
Publisher: Cyr House Publishing

Seven years ago, Addison Fitzpatrick found herself in a bit of a bind. In true Addison-fashion, she'd angered a drug dealer; she may have “forgotten” to pay him. Just when it was time to pay the piper, she was offered a way out by an unlikely being. Cannon Blackwood, master of vampires, made her an offer she couldn't refuse. Now, Addison owes Cannon three favors.

Seven years after that fateful meeting, just as Addison’s life is getting back on track, Cannon calls in one of the favors she owes him. There is a new drug that threatens the very existence of the vampire race and Cannon needs Addison, along with his brother Lachlan, who happens to be a professional thief, to steal it and destroy any evidence of it. 

Not only is the future of the vampires on the line, but with both Cannon and Lachlan vying for her attention, her heart is as well. Addison has difficult choices to make and dangerous favors to repay if she wants to see the light of another day.

Push and Pull is the first book in the Vampire Favors series by Emily Cyr. The narrator on the audiobook did a wonderful job. She added the emotion necessary, the voice inflections were spot on, and she even did a sound effect or two when a character snorted or something like that. It wasn't over acted. It was just right.

The story was pretty darn good too. I sympathized with Addison from the beginning. She's done dumb things, and she owns up to it. There's tremendous growth in her character from the beginning to the end, and she keeps her sense of humor through it all. The vampires are intriguing. These aren't necessarily friendly, huggy vampires. They're pretty alpha and used to getting their way. Many don't think much of humans, and they have a hierarchy amongst themselves that they seem to follow for the most part. Addison is in debt to Cannon. Because of this, Cannon thinks he owns her. Lachlan enters the picture, and he's not a whole lot better. He's broody and grumpy. He's used to being in control. Addison has other thoughts on the matter, and it's fun watching her put these guys in their places. It's almost like a good cop/bad cop kind of thing between Cannon and Lachlan. Or at least that's the way it feels to me, because I'm not sure who I trust as far as the vampires are concerned. If I trust them at all. I feel like there's more info to be gathered in upcoming books, and I'm looking forward to them quite a bit.

Check out my reviews of the other books in this series!

Emily Cyr is a stay-at-home mom turned writer. She holds a degree in middle grades education with certification in English and social science. She has always had a love of all things paranormal and fantasy, but it wasn’t until Emily’s husband said the words, “Why not?” that she considered putting her thoughts and ideas into the book, The Lightning Prophecy. This trilogy was just the start for Emily. It seemed to open a creative door that had been locked.

Emily has always been an avid reader. Through reading came her love of writing. The more she read, the more she knew she wanted to create her own world. Many of her first works were fan fiction.
Emily and her family currently reside in Jacksonville, Florida. She has an incredibly supportive husband. They have two sons, ages 2 and 3. Somehow, even with the demands of being a parent to two little boys, she finds time to escape to her fantasies and write them down.

Though this is Emily’s first published book, it will not be her last. She is currently working on book two in the Lightning Witch Trilogy and book one in the Vampire Favors series, titled Push and Pull.
