Title: Don’t Stake My Life On It (The Vamp for Me #2)
Author Name & Publisher: Bailey Bradford (Pride Publishing)
Publication Date & Length: July 28, 2015 – 113 pgs

Synopsis

Stakes, kilts and holy water—Andrew Meyer is in for the time of his life!

Radney’s tired of being the coven oddball. He had his reasons for being the way he was, and he let those reasons rule his life for centuries. Another mistake—almost harming a human he’d been sent to keep an eye on—has sent Radney on a mission of self-improvement. He’s going to conquer his issues and be the best damned vamp ever!

Maybe.

Andrew Meyers has the term paper from hell to write. It needs to be original and intriguing. What could be more so than people with a vampire fetish?

But when that fetish turns out to be one he has, for a very sexy, kilt-wearing, neurotic vampire, the tables are turned. Andrew isn’t prepared to find out that vampires are real, but he learns it anyway. With help from his twin brother, Erin, he just might be able to find a happy ending—or an ecstatic beginning—for him and his hot as hell red-headed vamp. If he’s careful, and patient, he might even find the vamp for him.

Well I hate to say this because I really liked the first book in this series but for some reason this one was just not for me…
This book just felt so rushed to me to be honest. I know it is a Novella so yes it will be a fast read but everything that happened between Radney and Andrew happened so fast that I was left feeling like there really was not much of a connection between the two of them at all.
Radney picks Andrew from the Vampire dating website because he feels like no one in his coven likes him very much so he wants to change. Andrew likes Radney from the start and yes I did feel some chemistry between the two of them I just did not get enough time with them I think to feel like they really connected.
You do get the steam with this book which I loved and the action. You also get to see some of the characters from the first book which I also loved.
So I am sad to say I really did not feel a connection between these two MC’s so this Novella was just not for me..

5 Stars for My Life Without Garlic (The Vamp for Me #1) by Bailey Bradford #MM #Paranormal @PridePublishing

0.1

Title: My Life Without Garlic (The Vamp for Me #1)
Author Name & Publisher: Bailey Bradford (Totally Bound Publishing)
Publication Date & Length: June 16, 2015 – 105 pgs

Synopsis

Some things in life just might be worth giving up garlic for.

It was simple curiosity that led Augustin to the vampire dating site—he thought it must be a joke started up by a bunch of weirdos. Man, was he right—but it just so happens that those weirdos really are vampires, and when one shows up at his place, Augustin’s world is turned upside down.

First he’s got a psychotic vampire to deal with. Then he’s got one who is much more fun hanging around.

Except now that Augustin knows that vampires exist, he can’t be left alive. Or can he? When an alternative is offered up, Augustin doesn’t care for it, either. After all, he doesn’t want to be whisked off to some disgusting vampire den.

Tony’s the vampire next in line to lead the coven. He wants to be a fair man, and that means arguing against killing Augustin. If he’s also attracted to the sarcastic, adorable man, where’s the harm in that?

The attraction between Augustin and Tony is undeniable, but deny it is what they both try to do. Someone is going to have to bend or break.

Publisher’s Note: This book was previously available on the author’s blog.

This book was hilarious… I laughed so much reading this!

I loved the way Tony and Augustin were together.. Yes Augustin got annoying after awhile because he came of mean sometimes instead of funny sometimes which drove me nuts to be honest. But otherwise I really did love this book.
This book was super short so everything between the two them goes really fast but the way they were together more than makes up for it. I could really feel how good they were for each other.
I really would have loved to see more of them together.
Tony was so caring when it came to Augustin and eventually you get that feeling from Augustin too after he stops being so snarky most of the time. You also get steam with this book which was so hot!

So I will leave this review with I loved this Novella!

4 Stars for Bloodlines (Sanguis Noctis #3) by Robin Saxon and Alex Kidwell #MM #Paranormal @Robin_Saxon

1.2

Title: Bloodlines (Sanguis Noctis #3)
Author Name & Publisher: Robin Saxon & Alex Kidwell (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: November 15, 2013 – 440 pgs

Synopsis

Mercenary Jed Walker and his reclusive boyfriend, Redford Reed, are all set for a much-needed trip—nothing but sand, fish, sun, and drinks with those tiny umbrellas in them—when Victor Rathbone shows up with an acquaintance in tow.

Randall Lewis pleads for their help in finding a cure for his brother Anthony’s rare disease. Jed, Redford, and Victor join the Lewises as they set out to find the Gray Lady, legendary leader of the largest wolf pack in existence, who may be able to help. What they don’t expect is to find themselves caught up in her pack’s struggles with local human hunters or a growing conflict among the supernatural communities.

Jed is abruptly faced with what it means to be human in a world rife with the supernatural, and the challenges keep piling up: fear that his way of life is hurting his Redford, sparks flying between the half-blood Victor and wolf Randall, the impending threat of hunters, and the quickly approaching war that could kill them all. All things considered, Jed wishes fishing was the only thing he had to look forward to.

With this one you get more of Redford and Jed which I absolutely loved! But you also get the POV’s of Victor and Randall which I can say I was not a huge fan of at all..
I think with the POV’s of Victor and Randall I just really did not care, I am sorry I just had no interest in them as a couple at all. I think that I felt like this mainly because I was still not a huge fan of Victor at all.
Other then those parts I really loved this book!  This time Redford is asked to go to the Gray lady’s pack to ask for help because Randall’s brother Anthony was sick and human medicine was not working.  Redford in this book is having a hard time dealing with his wolf voice in his head and the instincts he was having that were making him violent.  They all together helped the pack deal with the human hunters that were hurting wolves.
This time Jed is having a hard time because he feels like he is keeping Redford back from being the wolf he needs to be, so they have more troubles as a couple in this book. The way they work together though is just awesome!  I really liked Randall’s brothers Anthony and Edwin.  I kind of hope that Edwin is the soul mate that Victor was talking about for David in the last book Blood in the Sand.
You get more action with this one which I loved, angst and sweet moments between Redford and Jed.
All together I really liked most of this book!
I would definitely recommend this series!

4 Stars for Blood in the Sand (Sanguis Noctis #2) by Robin Saxon and Alex Kidwell #MM #Paranormal @Robin_Saxon

1.2

Title: Blood in the Sand (Sanguis Noctis #2)
Author Name & Publisher: Robin Saxon & Alex Kidwell (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: June 1, 2012 – 350 pgs

Synopsis

Sanguis Noctis Book Two, Sequel to Blood Howl When David, an old contact and sometimes friend, hires Jed Walker to look into a series of seemingly unrelated disappearances in Cairo, Jed jumps at the chance to show his partner, Redford Reed, more of the world he’s been missing. David’s boyfriend, supernatural expert and resident stuffy professor Victor Rathbone, joins them in their journey to Egypt, which holds many more dangers and mysteries than Jed ever expected. Hidden natures resurface, relationships collide, and instincts are stretched to their breaking point. What seems to be a simple case turns out to be anything but. David may have called for help, but he has his own suspicions about who’s behind the kidnappings-suspicions that, along with clashing personalities, make getting to the bottom of the mystery difficult. While Jed and Redford grow more intimate and trusting with each new obstacle in their path, David and Victor struggle not to lose their trust in each other in the face of their differences. As the four close in on the kidnappers, David is forced to face the one thing more dangerous than the mastermind behind the disappearances: himself.

You get to see more of Redford and Jed together which I loved! This time they are in Egypt with David and Victor trying to find out why people are disappearing.
While I really loved most of this book like getting to see Redford and Jed growing as a couple and how funny Jed is.. I really was not a fan of Victor and David’s POV’s that were mixed in this book.
I think I felt this way mainly because I was really not a fan of the flashbacks David kept having and I was not a huge fan of Victor.  He was just so abrupt and really mean to Jed.
Beside those parts I really did enjoy this book.  You get to see Redford dealing with the new changes to his wolf after what happened with the last book.  You also got more of Jed being protective of Redford which I loved.  The things Jed would say sometimes had me laughing so hard.  The two of them together just clicked.
You get your angst, action and dealing with monsters that go bump in the night with this book also.
All together I really liked this book!
I would definitely recommend this book!

5 Stars for Canine (Channeling Morpheus/ Sweet Oblivion #10.2) by Jordan Castillo Price #MM #Vampires

1

Title: Canine (Channeling Morpheus/ Sweet Oblivion #10.2)
Author Name: Jordan Castillo Price
Publication Date & Length: April 21, 2015 – 98 pgs

Synopsis

What’s the difference between a faithful companion and a feral animal? Wild Bill suspects the line separating the two is shaky at best. Supposedly, Michael has been tamed, and he swears he gave up hunting. But when he comes home covered in blood and reeking of adrenaline, Bill fears Michael has crossed paths with another bloodsucker, and the urge to exterminate the vamp was too powerful to resist.

Michael doesn’t need to hunt vampires to stir up trouble. His run-in with threatening neighbors has left him baffled, demoralized, and teetering on the brink of yet another episode of depression. It tears Bill up inside to see Michael suffer—unfortunately, the sorrow also trips his most primal vamp triggers. Before he knows it, his own inner beast rears up, ravenous, insatiable, and ready to tear into the next thing that crosses his path…making him wonder if it was wishful thinking to hope that either of them had been successfully domesticated.

Canine takes place after Elixir and contains series spoilers

Review FiveStars

This was a sweet and steamy little short!
We get Wild Bill’s POV in this one and find out what a nice vampire he can actually be.
Michael swerved around a pit bull that had been hit by someone else and is upset by how the owner treats him when he brings the dog to him to take to the vet.  Wild Bill goes and makes sure that the owner actually takes him in and finds the guy who hit the dog.
I can’t go much more into it without giving the whole thing away but I can say you get to see a different side to Wild Bill in this and I loved it!
I would definitely recommend this novella!.

5 Stars for A Bitter Taste of Sweet Oblivion Box Set by Jordan Castillo Price #MM #Vampires

1

Title: A Bitter Taste of Sweet Oblivion Box Set
Author Name: Jordan Castillo Price
Publication Date & Length: April 21, 2015 – 272 pgs

Synopsis

Staking a vampire isn’t so easy now that Michael’s got a vampire of his very own. Although killing them is no longer an option, he’s as determined as ever to stop the spread of vampirism.

Wild Bill is a lover, not a fighter–so he’s tickled when Michael’s new agenda, to dispense condoms and sterile phlebotomy gear among vampires, replaces the old “heads will roll” approach.

It takes courage to track down vamps in their own territory and deliver a lecture on safe sex, and more importantly, safe bloodletting. Michael’s never been short on audacity…but he’s finding that he and Wild Bill aren’t the only ones with agendas.

Ebook box set contains the following novelettes: Brazen, Snare, Fluid, Swarm, Elixir

Review FiveStars

This book was another really good book and a awesome add to this series!
We get a lot more of Wild Bill and Michael together which I loved.  Throw in a little three way action which was so hot!!
This book goes from hunting vampires, to helping vampires be better, to meeting human vampire hunters, to awesome tattoos turned bad.
It became clear to me in this book that they have a open relationship to a certain point before Wild Bill would get jealous and go all vamp.
You get dual POV in this book which I loved and thought added a lot to this book by seeing how they both thought and felt.
There is action and a lot of steam in this book.. You get to also see what is happening with Michael’s body more now that he carries the Vampire strain.
I can’t say much more with out giving away spoiler so I will leave this review with I 100% loved this book!
I would definitely recommend this book!

5 Stars for Electric Candle (The Sleepless City #2) by Elizabeth Noble #MM #Paranormal @dreamspinners

1.2

Title: Electric Candle (The Sleepless City #2)
Author Name & Publisher: Elizabeth Noble (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: April 2014 – 200 pgs

Synopsis

When a vampire finds his soul mate, the bond is forever. It’s love at first sight. Or is it?

Flint, Ohio Homicide Detective Jonas Forge has been a vampire for nearly two hundred years. He’s fought wars, seen life go from the simple but hard colonial days to the modern high tech world. He’s evolved with the times, adapting with each new era, blending into each new life. The one constant is his best friend and lover, Declan.

Until Forge’s soul mate tumbles, literally, into his life.

Even though they’re not fated to be together forever, Forge and Declan are perfectly happy. Despite the pheromone attracting him to his soul mate, Forge isn’t thrilled with the guy, and the feeling seems mutual. While trying to adjust to his clumsy soul mate and equally awkward feelings, Forge is on the hunt for the serial killer who’s leaving a trail of bodies, and who witnesses can’t identify. But Forge better watch out. When his work collides with his love life, things really heat up.

You have Blair who is lost on what he his and unsure on what he was feeling.  I did feel bad for him because of him having to compete with someone who was not there.  I really loved his character.
Then there was Forge who did not want anything to do with Blair at first because of Declan and not wanting a soul mate.  Honestly he kind of made me mad in some parts of the book with the way he treated Blair.  But once he stops fighting it… It was so sweet the way he treated Blair and how much he cared about him.
There is some mystery in this book while they hunt down the serial killer whatever it may be, which I can’t say without out giving away spoilers.
All together loved this book!  I would definitely recommend this book!
