Publisher's Summary

River
When I meet Bentley DeGray, I’m at the lowest point in my life because no matter how much I fight, my past won’t let me escape. Bentley makes me laugh and care and love, but what does any of that mean when I’m living a lie? 

Things get complicated when I find out he’s with the Vampire Related Crimes Unit, the organization looking for answers about the abductions of prominent vampires. 

The same organization that stands in my way. 

My time is ticking down while I’m wound up in this role I’ve been forced to play, but I know that I would be drowning without Bentley by my side. 

Bentley
We’re facing something that runs so deep that we don’t know who we can trust besides each other, even within the VRC. River makes me feel like every day is worth living and enjoying - like I’m not so alone. I can’t imagine life without him. But I know that if I want to keep him by my side, I will need to do everything I can to help him so our love doesn’t get cut short before it can truly grow. 

How to Save a Human contains a cat who shows her affection by not drawing (much) blood, art projects that are a little...sketchy, the most underwhelming “bull” ride ever, and vampires that may or may not be in the mob.

i want more books

It's review time 🎧
Warning ⚠️: mm romance, fantasy, vampires, police story, medical trigger, abuse, comedy, part of a series, can be read as a standalone but not recommended, because of the time line of this book you'll discover things about the other characters from other books.

Narrator score🎧 ; Michael Ferraiuolo is a freaking artist , he did an outstanding job with this book (not a surprise really) and what I really loved about the preference that he gave the book another rhythm it was a bit slower than the usual comedies he preformed and it only shows how much he understands his work.

Level of steam🔥: ad always the did isn't what's important in Alice's books.... and when it came it was sweet and very fitting for the story...

Level of anxiety and sadness0😱😢: well... I cried i actually did cry 3 times if I recall correctly! It wasn't a heavy book, it was still a comedy so don't worry about it.... but yeah the story had his dramatic effect for sure.... and I don't think it's the usual comedies she does.... the banter is here.... the story is here... but I think the fact that those characters are somehow normal compared to others... and the fact that the background story is a bit more difficult... makes the feeling run high. But yet again it's still Alice winters and it is still a comedy that I adored.

The book itself📖: well. I think it is the last book in this series (maybe I'm wrong, I wish I'm I just loved it so much.)
And I think that the is brilliant. I loved River he is a funny, sweet, strong and very innocent character on his own whey... and Bentley just stole my heart. I adore his kindness his way of viewing the world..... and I adore the crazy cat 🤣🤣🤣 it was just a sweet book, with a crazy background story and the best characters ever.

Not as funny but still good

I became a little spoiled by Alice's other books that made me laugh out loud. This one didn't. The story was good and is told in two separate time frames. One is early in the series and the other would be book 4. Michael Ferraluolo did his usual excellent job performing the story. He's one of my favorite readers.

Book 5? Anyone?

So, I'm not sure if there will be a book five for tgis series. I mean ai kind of want to see that special agent find someone to love, but at the same time wasn't their captian dirty as well? I feel like that happened in the last book. Also didn't Degray go to jail, because he was the one who was leaking info to the crazy bastard vamp that totured Fin? Maybe all that was a fever dream I'm not sure. Well anyways great read as always.

4.5 STARS ⭐️


GAHHH I just love these funny, crazy, lovable men.
Bentley and River deserved each other. They were perfect for another.
I just loved the plot, the mystery, the laughs, I was just stuck on this. We also got to see extra Claude and Marcus which was even better. Loved it!

Love this series, Love this story

I enjoyed this audiobook so much. It is very rare for me to like book 4 in the series as much as the previous books, I get bored of the same formula with different names, etc. I love that in this entertaining series every story has its own twist and mystery and challenges characters have to overcome. I admit that while listening to previous books DeGray wasn't as interesting for me as Marcus or Karsyn and I wasn't as impatient for his story as I was for Aleksei's. However, from the very first chapters I was engrossed in River's and Bentley's story and unable to put the book down until the end. I loved this story and I love the entire series. Narrator did a great job with the voices, story telling and made this entertaining book a perfect listening experience.

oh My Gooooooood [Spoilers Noted]

I am such a big fan of all Alice Winters series- and this one just makes me gush!! while this has a more serious note, it ties everything together so well!! I appreciate the authors note in the beginning and really only wish River and Bentleys voices would have been a bit more varied- but past that, It's a real chefs kiss.

[Spoilers!]
It honestly hurts my soul to see how each of their relationships have grown. Finn continues to be the amazingly short charming anti-damsel. He doesn't need his incredibly scary vampire to save him but lord if he doesn't have him! I love seeing Marcus do so much for his friends and family. How even Alexei and Marcus are "perfect best friends" without them knowing.

I absolutely love how Claude and Alexei have somehow become the normal couple out of all of this- and absolute Bros! Helping people? No problem! Keeping shit to themselves! Gotchu! Research and Tech- The A Team. They kept Bentleys secret so damn hard they kept it from each other. 😂 How they look out for each others mates, friends and brothers is just so great 👌

I always thought Bentley and Brier are unusually absent or in the background for the other books and now I know why... Jesus- what's Brier up to? It makes sense Bentleys barely not having a break down in the corner. (Honestly thank God Finn came for these morons.) I originally thought the romance was a little fast and rough but seeing it through the stretch of four books is just a *beautiful* way to tie up loose ends. I absolutely LOVE all the inserts of events into other books, intertwining them.

How they've all come together into one huge happy family gives my heart such deep satisfaction. An over-protective dad, a delightful baby sister, Claudes weird clothes, Alexeis glares, Marcus' looming, and Finns dazzling smile. Now with Bentleys strange niceness and Rivers awful luck and awkward personality that I just *get*. I love the turn of events- bringing them together to be a tight knit coven. I love the sideview of Watson and listened with bated breath! Winters found a to turn monsters into humans and vice versa, showing that even evil can show kindness and evil can lead to unthinkable good. I can't wait for more from this author.

Like this series gives me hope for love and happiness in the world and thats hard to do now days. I could literally go all night on how much I absolutely love the series.

and all the animals I'm gonna dieeeee 😭 Artemis, Hela, Banshee, Riddler, Raduga, Amara- Yall need to read this book for the pets alone and how badass they are.

Loved it!

OMG this was so so good. I laughed and I cried it was amazing. Bentley’s and River’s story blew my mind and it was hard to do other things like work and sleep. Please listen to their story you will definitely love it too!

MC has a brain tumor, dnf, triggered.

Alice Winter's really should have mentioned in the blurb that her mc in this has a brain tumor. As someone who lost a loved one to brain cancer I didn't appreciate discovering this during listening to the book. l was so upset that I had to stop listening.

AMAZING

Another fantastic story on the wonderful VRC universe. I love how although the book is about Bentley and River, everyone is involved. so many twists and turns and so much drama, yet so much remember and snark too.

wonderful

great story to end the series and the way this story runs along side the other three. I found the author by accident and in a week and a couple of days I have listened to all 4 books. that speaks for itself. I really recommend this series. the narrator has to win full Mark's for all the voices ( love Karsons)
