We’ve got a great post today from Merit (heroine from the awesome CHICAGOLAND VAMPIRE SERIES by Chloe Neill). She’s looking over the male cast members in her series and rating them as book boyfriends. Help me in welcoming Merit and Chloe to Cocktails and Books!
Hi, everyone, and welcome to the BITING BAD Blog Tour! From July 29, 2013 to August 9, 2013 (click here for full schedule), I’m visiting blogs to give Merit an opportunity to rate the men of the Chicagoland Vampires series–are they “Book Boyfriend” material? Let’s see what she has to say.
Jeff Christopher, Ombuddy
Hair/eye color Brown / N/A
Species: Shifter (tiger), North American Central Pack
First appearance in book (book/page): SGB, page 84
Thoughts: Whether playing therapist to Chicago’s River Nymphs, or breaking into high-level servers across the world, Jeff Christopher is a man with skills of all varieties.
Verdict: B+ / Book boyfriend material for geeks/nerds, those who love silly grins, and those who appreciate a man who can work the keys.

Merit has been a vampire for only a short while, but she’s already seen a lifetime’s worth of trouble. She and her Master, centuries-old Ethan Sullivan, have risked their lives time and again to save the city they love. But not all of Chicago is loving them back.
Anti-vampire riots are erupting all over town, striking vampires where it hurts the most. A splinter group armed with Molotov cocktails and deep-seated hate is intent on clearing the fanged from the Windy City come hell or high water.
Merit and her allies rush to figure out who’s behind the attacks, who will be targeted next, and whether there’s any way to stop the wanton destruction. The battle for Chicago is just beginning, and Merit is running out of time.
Chloe Neill is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Chicagoland Vampires and Dark Elite series.
She was born and raised in the South, but now makes her home in the Midwest–just close enough to Cadogan House and St. Sophia’s to keep an eye on things. When not transcribing Merit’s and Lily’s adventures, she bakes, works, and scours the Internet for good recipes and great graphic design. Chloe also maintains her sanity by spending time with her boys–her favorite landscape photographer/husband and their dogs, Baxter and Scout. (Both she and the photographer understand the dogs are in charge.)
