Review: Thirst (The Energy Vampires, #1) by Jacquelyn Frank


Title: Thirst
Series: The Energy Vampires, Book One 
Author: Jacquelyn Frank
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: January 17, 2017



🔆Synopsis🔆
A hidden society of vampires—and the humans they love—are at the heart of this opening novel in a biting, all-original series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Nightwalkers saga.

Rafe DaSilva is an energy vampire, soaking up nourishment from the sun—and, only when necessary, drawing sweet sustenance from humans who are pure in body and spirit. As the right-hand man to his queen, Rafe is a key player at a historic peace summit in New York City, which will unite the vampire nations against a common threat: the sycophants, who feed on humanity and kill indiscriminately. But Rafe’s fascination with a beautiful blond police detective may put everything at risk.

Detective Renee Holden has never worked a homicide quite like this. The victim has twin puncture wounds on his neck, and the only eyewitness swears she saw a vampire. Now’s definitely not the time to get distracted by a seductive stranger. But the suave, darkly austere, exotically handsome Rafe DaSilva is a hard man to deny, and as Renee falls under his spell, she also falls prey to his enemies. Desperate to protect her, Rafe lifts the veil on a shadow realm she can only visit—a world of intoxicating power, terrifying dangers, and forbidden pleasures.

What an Awesome Story! 
When I saw this available on NetGalley, I knew I had to request it. Happy that I did. 

Jacquelyn Frank is a new to me Author. I am definitely going to follow this series, I have become enthralled with this story. Can't wait for the next installment.

The characters are well developed, personable, likable, believable, and strong.

Rafe is a. fang-tastic character, respectful, old school, intelligent, and BADASSERY WICKEDNESS happens when he is provoked. Renee is  strong, intelligent, self reliant, and straightforward character in her own right. Love these characters.

The world building is consistent, picturesque, full of emotion, action, twisted turns that make this a journey into fresh and original territory. Throw in Suspense, Paranormal Romance, and Mystery, You have an Amazing Story that is hard to put down.

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Defy (Sinners of Saints, #0.5) by L.J Shen

Title: Defy
Series: Sinners of Saints #0.5
Author: L.J Shen
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: February 3, 2017






My name is Melody Greene, and I have a confession to make.

I slept with my student, a senior in high school.

Multiple times.

I had multiple orgasms.
In multiple positions.
I slept with my student and I enjoyed it.
I slept with my student and I’d do it all over again if I could turn back time.
My name is Melody Greene, and I got kicked out of my position as a teacher and did my walk of shame a la Cersei Lannister from the principal’s office, minutes after said principal threatened to call the cops on me.
My name is Melody Greene, and I did something bad because it made me feel good.
Here is why it was totally worth it. 

Defy is a smutty, insta-love, insta-lust short novella. Defy is a prequel to Vicious (Sinners of Saint #1). It is recommended, but unnecessary, to read Defy before reading Vicious.

TL Travis is a new to me author. What a Steaming Hot introduction it is at that. 

This is a well written and fast paced read that grabbed my attention from the start. An unforeseen twist, an unexpected well mannered male and the best friend. What a setting for a tasty morsel. 

The characters are well developed, personable, likable, and believable. Emily is in for a trick or treat that I did not see coming.  

Great Job! I really enjoyed this one.

Pre-Order Blitz & Giveaway: Heathered Country (Devil's Iron MC #6) by GM Scherbert

Title: Heathered Country
Series: Devil's Iron MC #6
Author: GM Scherbert
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: February 25, 2017


Heather
When I got pregnant with Sophie, I worried our lives would never get better. We spent years on the run from the man that swore he’d take her from me.
When I met Country, for the first time in years I felt true fear. I knew my heart and soul were in trouble and I wasn’t sure if I could trust myself, especially with this man. 
Country was kind and laid back but that was part of the problem. What if the kind of love I needed was something he could never give me?

Country
My life was easy now after moving to Chicago from Texas. Predictable. 
When I met my spitfire, that all changed. I couldn’t wrap my head around my feelings for her, but my cock wasn’t confused one bit. I wanted her. Her every want and every desire were mine for the taking.
I was willing to do whatever it took to have her, even if what she needed was something I never thought I could do to someone, especially a woman. 
But, for her, I’ll find a way.





GM Scherbert was born on a brisk late April morning and grew up in a small town in the Midwest but, quickly decided that was not the life for her. She quickly moved away for college and thought better of returning to that small town on a long term basis. City living is defiantly the life for her...
GMs day job working with people on the Autism spectrum keeps her on the go most of the time. That is when her three small daughters and husband are not pulling her in different directions.
Gm is the kind of gal who is quirky, unique, smutty, crazy, hard to hate, harder to love. She has taken her love for telling stories to the next level by putting her hat in the romance writing game. 

If you are interested in romance with twists and some darker themes Author GM Scherbert will be right up your alley.
