Beverly Hills Torture (Erin Kingsly Novel Book 2) by R.W. Buxton
ABOUT THE BOOK
A frantic middle of the night call jolts Gerry from his quiet, but lonely life, back into a world fraught with dangerous creatures of the night. Erin’s frenzied call leads Gerry across the country where he finds himself immersed in the luxuries of Beverly Hills and the seedier side of the Hollywood strip.
Sadness and longing grip him as he finds a blood-spattered room and Erin is nowhere to be found.
Alone in a strange city with nothing to go on can Gerry find and save Erin? Or is this the end of something never meant to be?
Her past has caught up with her and he’s her only hope.
With a group of trusted friends Gerry takes on the impossible and gives everything to save Erin.
This book continues from Mr. Buxton’s debut novel Capital Thirst. It’s one year later and the High Council is going to punish Erin for killing another vampire and partially turning a human. And there is some sort of ancient prophecy at work which involves both Erin and Gerry.
Most of this book was Gerry’s story and his struggle to forgive a woman he loved for being a killer and a vampire. After all, she partially turned him into a vampire, he was demoted to a desk job in the FBI, and she walked out on him. However, when he receives a disturbing call from her after a year of silence, his love for her sends him to California to save her from sure death.
Gerry has a young daughter who he needs to protect, so I was surprised he went to such lengths to protect a woman that disappeared and he hadn’t heard from in a year. Her decisions went against everything he stood for, but she did save his life once however screwed up that was.
Despite the confusion about their relationship, I enjoyed the action in this story. Watching Gerry change while storming the gates is surprising and exciting at the same time. I was also happy to see Erin’s vampire friends Vernon and Gill who didn’t hesitate to help Gerry with his mission to save Erin.
As for the ending, I was dumbfounded as to why a certain someone was suddenly all nice and back in his life after not being there for support when he needed it in the past. I guess I’ll have to wait and see in the next book.
Overall, I enjoyed the action and adventure in this book, but the relationships were a bit hard to understand. I guess Gerry and Erin will always be a hard couple to crack.
Thank you to Mr. Buxton for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I’m R.W. (Rodney) Buxton a new indie author of paranormal romance
I love a good paranormal read, something about the un-dead haunts the fringes of my mind. Mix in romance, love, loss, and you have a great story.
I voraciously read everything, fiction, and non-fiction but always find myself turning back to the darker stories. I’ve always wanted to write and the dream became a reality with Capital Thirst and the remainder of the Erin Kingsly novels.
I spend most of my days designing and building websites, but my free time is devoted to my wife, family, and cats. Yes, three grown children and three cats. Things can be hectic.
For fun, you might find me driving winding roads with the top down or out photographing nature.
