Adult, Paranormal, Romance
Vampires, strippers, escorts, night clubs, pimps and dirty cops – the Nightlife New York is never boring. Aaron Pilan’s life is forever changed when he’s shot trying to rescue a drop-dead gorgeous woman on the streets of New York. Aaron is thrust into the shocking world of vampiric slavery when Michelle shares her blood to save his life.
Michelle's existence as a solitary vampire is also altered when she accepts this naive young man into her life. Bound by her blood, Aaron is subject to her authority. He walks a tightrope of strictly controlled feeding regiments and intense sexual adventures while catering to the neurotic control-freak tendencies of his new master. She vows to eliminate him if he proves too difficult to control.
This paranormal romance thriller is bold and evocative, infusing blood, sex, love and turmoil in an urban drama about two vampires battling evil outside and within themselves.
2 out of 5 (below average)
I was looking forward to this book as it is described as "violent, sexy, and occasionally violently sexy." It seemed like it would be a dark and gritty book, veering away from the 'lighter' vampires and taking them back into the black. However, for me, it just didn't do it. There was something missing. I read the whole book but only because I wanted to see if I could find what was missing.
There are some good parts to the book and some not so good. I wouldn't describe this book as sexy although there is a lot of sex and orgasms in it. Best I can say, is try it for yourself. You might like it.
