Again, as I stated, this book is a definite five star read. I found it to be very realistic. I am a Criminal Justice Major, and I love horror and gore, and this book truly was my cup of tea.

On the day her boyfriend's accidental death, she meets Harvey, a police detective that seems to understand just what she is—a hybrid.

Alli, like Harvey, was attacked by a vampire as a child, but not turned, leaving her in a quasi-state with some of the vampires gifts, and Alli is quickly fearing just what she's doing during her blackouts—feeding on people. As she deals with the death of her boyfriend and the exploration of her powers, she finds a new life and someone who understands everything she is experiencing, like seeing the dead.
Drawn by their similar abilities, Alli and Harvey fall in love as she comes out of her shell, supported by the patient Harvey. As a serial killer strikes their town in England, Harvey enlists Alli's unique gifts to help the police track down the monster killing and dismembering children and their families.
And looming over Alli's newfound life is the dread that she'll learn just what she does during her blackouts and it will take away her newfound happiness. Split Decision is a slow burn. It spends a lot of time introducing you to the world, maybe a little too much time, before it really gets into the meat of the story, but the characters of Alli and Harvey are so sweet together that it pulls you through the setup.
ejisytoqys.tk: Split Decision (The Hybrid Series Book 1) eBook: Andrew Harding: Kindle Store
The writings great, though it is quite heavy on the British slang, so be prepared to Google. I had never heard the term 'off license' before and was utterly baffled by the sentence until a looked it up. Since the story is told in first person from almost entirely by Alli, that only helps to get into the character's head. Now for the sex. Alli and Harvey aren't fully human, and they make full use of that in the kinky sex that get into.
Rubber play, body modifications, extended bondage sessions, and lots of vibrators, dildos, and butt plugs. Alli and Harvey take a very loving delight in taking each other to the edge of sex. Aug 03, Helen White rated it really liked it. The book deals with a group of people, known as Hybrids, who have been bitten by vampires in the past but not fully turned. As a result they develop certain powers, not ageing, mind reading, the ability to see ghosts, etc.
The book carries two main themes, the work the main characters Alison and Harvey do for the police murder department, and their private lives, which involve a heavy dose of BDSM sex. As the book starts Alison is unaware of her powers and the reason for them, although she is a The book deals with a group of people, known as Hybrids, who have been bitten by vampires in the past but not fully turned. As the book starts Alison is unaware of her powers and the reason for them, although she is aware she sees dead people and can talk to them.
With their assistance she starts to explore a new and different life, and her new powers. Nevertheless, this element of the plot moves quickly and cleanly, and springs some enjoyable surprises. There is an element of violence and the macabre, but this is not overdone. It felt to me as if the book couldn't decide whether it was a thriller or an erotica novel. As the hybrid protagonists cannot feel pain, the BDSM is extreme, and this book should certainly not be read by the faint of heart. The author takes the BDSM element of the story into extreme and unusual pathways.
However, towards the end I felt it almost started to become stale, there are only so many permutations of rubber, leather, ropes, chains and hoists that can be employed. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the book a lot, and hunted out the sequel. Mar 06, Austin Macauley rated it it was amazing. What appears to be a fortuitous meeting with Harvey Burgess, Alison Grey Alli begins a relationship with him that will not only open the door to her emotions, but will unravel the very being of her own existence.

Editorial Reviews About the Author Andrew Harding worked in manufacturing all his life and eighteen years ago was diagnosed with Progressive Multiple Sclerosis. Although it was tough, he worked on for thirteen years and finally had to stop because he developed arthritis in his left hand.
All through his life he wanted to write a book, and with time on his hands that first book grew into three, The Spirit Trilogy: Spirit, Force and Parity. Next, The Hybrid Series: Medium Rare has just been released. Although each book has a unique crime and can be read as stand-alone, the back-story in the series rolls from one book to the other where you'll see how the outrageous family of hybrids grows.
Harding's life-long fascination with Crime, the Paranormal and the Supernatural has given him a huge amalgam to dip into, and more importantly a new lease on life.

The Author writes so vividly and emotionally that you actually feel as if you are there with the characters! And I must say I enjoyed every word of this book! Now with my emotional part out of the way! This is a book written about Hybrid Vampires. The main characters are Harvey and Alli. He is in the Police crime unit and Alli is a hooker, but not your ordinary hooker.. They meet and when he discovers she is a hybrid also and can read minds, he gets her a job in his crime unit.
A must read for anyone who enjoys this type of book. You will love it.. First i like to say that this is not an ordinary book, if you think that you read everything about BDSM sex then you're wrong cause this book can take you beyond that, and the reason its because we are not talking about 2 simple humans but about hybrids, half Vampire half human. There is nothing simple about the two main character of that book. Not the way the fall in love,no the way the make sex,not even their job.
Mr Harding's writing is so vivid and accurate that can make you feel like you actualy been in every murder scene. Some of those scenes give me the chills.
See a Problem?
So now about the sex even if you are not into this kind of sex,you will enjoy this book, because the writer's imagination is enormous. Allthough i believe this book it should write on the cover "Don't try this at Home-Extremely dangerous for Human Beings", i would definitely read the next book of this series.

Split Decision, the first book in the Hybrid Series, lays the foundation for the series but works undoubtably as a stand alone book, too. It's fast and furious and there is no third person narration to be found anywhere.
