As a Seminus demon, Raze’s life literally depends on having sex with females. The problem is that he doesn’t desire females, and it’s physically impossible for him to be with males. Thankfully, he and his best friend, Fayle, have an arrangement that keeps him alive . . . if lonely. He finds some solace in his work as a medic at Thirst, a vampire club known for its rough clientele. But his carefully structured world turns upside down when he meets a mysterious male who makes him want what he can never have.

Slake is an assassin used to getting what he wants, and what he wants is Raze. But he also wants to earn back the soul he sold when he was a much different demon. All he has to do is capture a runaway succubus named Fayle and hand her over to her family. What he doesn’t count on is being caught himself by a web of lies—and his attraction to Raze.

Raze and Slake must navigate a dangerous world to be together. But as Fayle’s jealousy of their relationship turns deadly, they find themselves embroiled in a battle not only for their love, but their lives and souls.

Oh wow!! This book was so good.
Raze who is a Seminus demon who feeds off sex can not feed of a male, but he is gay so he is very lonely and not able to be with who he wants. He is also a medic for underworld general.
Then you get Slake who just wow when you find out his secret I just was stunned.. I would never had thought of it. What a twist I mean I am still sitting her stunned and I already finished the book lol.
Originally Slake is only at thirst to do a job but once he lays eyes on Raze everything changes and the sparks fly between these two.
There is a lot of action and a whole lot of steamy scenes..
These two together were just awesome!

I loved this book!

I would definitely recommend this book!


Ooooh.. I really enjoyed this story. It was such a great read!!!
I loved the author was able to world build without making it heavy and distracting, but just part of a well written story.
I haven’t read any story like this one before, but I really loved the chemistry of the men and the story. The whole succubus/need for sex part was great along with the other twists that are thrown in along the way.
It’s hard to write a review for this book without giving away much of what goes on so I just have to say what a great book it was with a very good plot.
