Today's review is Wicked Game - Jeri Smith-Ready - 2008

Ciara Griffin has just landed a job as a marketing intern at a local radio
station, her last resorts for a summer job at least at WMMP, a radio
station that is being threatened with being sold to Skyware, a giant
communications conglomerate  and out to take over the world in all things music and media, unless ad revenue picks up. A former con artist with a sense of  people, Ciara feels that something is odd with the presenters and describes it like being in a timewarp.

She soon discovers that the DJs are undead and whatever Music they specialise in was from the year they were turned - yes , you guessed it the DJ's are vampires. One of them, Shane McAllister (turned in 1995), is really hot and dangerously tempting  and Ciara and Shane start to become a hint more than workmates, but when the immortality status stands in the way, Will Shane and Ciara work things out or are they destined to be just workmates ?.

In order to attract more listeners and get the ratings skyrocketing through the roof , Ciara promotes a  marketing strategy and the Sherwood, Md., station becomes 94.3 WVMP, the Lifeblood of Rock and Roll, exploiting the fang factor for profit, which of course doesn't cause real harm as nobody believes in vampires anyway- well not in this book. . It works, until an ancient vampire cult wants to pull the plug. Also playing in is The Control, an equally ancient paramilitary group created to protect good vampires and kill bad ones. 

The music and playlists for this book are what you expect to read as Rock N Roll and the costumes each of them wear , you can imagine you are reading back to that age in time .
