E years old and that Vince became Charlie s lovers at 19 years old but have been apart for the past four years was kept away from me and only referred to in bits and pieces of their conversations The characters might as well speaking in code Maybe I Lesca gave up too uickly considering that I stopped at barely 14 part of the book it is uite a long book my Kindle clocks it at than 400 pages But again I have read enough in my life that I prefer too with a story that actually interests me rather that stick with the one that doesn t and suffer for it It s not like I run out of books to read As always DNF book will not be rated The ARC is provided by the publisher via Netgalley for an exchange of fair and honest review No high rating is reuired for any ARC received REVIEWED FOR PRISM BOOK ALLIANCE375 StarsStripped with the Vampire very much felt like the book it was in that it was the first in a new series There was a lot of world building and explanation about the characters and how they had evolved over the centuries Even with all the explanations I felt a little lost in the first couple of chapters as though I was thrown in without all the detail I neededCharlie is a 300 year old vampire and doesn t easily fit into the society he belongs to He is old fashioned shy and easily intimated and has a huge chip on his shoulder about being Sharpes Trafalgar gay something that is not readily accepted with other vampires He is also seen as too human by his peers and is not someone they rely on for anything of importanceVince is a really fun character and makes no apology for who he is or how he lives his life He has known Charlie for many years first as a friend then later as a lover but for the past 5 years or so they have had no contact When Charlie found out how Vince made his money a fact that Vince hadn t been honest about he walked away from their relationship and never looked backNeither man has really moved on but Charlie is still very stuck in his waysWhen a joboes wrong and Vince ends up marked for sacrifice to an Aztec Punished god he turns to Charlie for help The implications are far reaching and could end up meaning the vampire societyoing to war There are ood vamps ones with their souls intact and then there are bad vamps who don t care who they kill or what damage they inflict on societyThe story is consuming and sometimes uite complicated and I don t think I would class it as a romance There is in fact very little romance and even less sex it is a story of Charlie and Vince reaching a compromise whilst fighting for their lives They are surrounded by some very colourful and interesting secondary characters who I imagine we will see of as the series rows This is a hard book to rate because objectively I don t think it was very ood It was campy sappy full of love will conuer all tropes and repressed ay men stereotypes But I still found myself enjoying it This is especially true when I consider my enjoyment level next to my initial expectations Babys First Christmas (Christmas Is For Kids) (Christmas Is For Kids) (Harlequin American Romances, 754) given the book s title I m sorry Jax Garren but I think that title is a horridly unfortunate choice It leads reader to believe this isoing to be a cheap plotless possibly PWP book and even I with my faint praise have to admit it s than thatTo illustrate my inconsistent feelings on this book let me drop a few contradictions I thought it was funny but I also thought the characters ability to joke and not freak the flip out unrealistic I liked the characters in Ups, Kita Sudah Menikah? general but I thought Vince s inability stop baiting people in the presence of very real attempts on his life over played I thought they were a cute couple but thought Charlie s reluctance after 300 years as aay man were illogical and Vince s unwillingness to make allowances for Charlie s fears selfish I thought the bad Catwoman guys and battle were fairly epic but who really catches the villain and then lets themotwice Honestly for almost everything I liked there was an opposite that annoyed me So I m putting this on my imaginary smack in the middle of Baby Legacy (So Many Babies goodbad shelf If you canet over the porn star title and read it for fluffy fun you might enjoy it On a side note One of those characters on the cover is presumably Charliewho should have red hair and freckles I m firmly of the belief that if you re oing to put a character on a book s jacket it needs to match that character People notice these things 3 Go ay vampire rights starsThe reason I picked this up was because I read Jax Garren s Tales of the Underlight before and was surprised to see her PNR MM in Netgalley A paranormal MM how can I pass it upVince 24 a human work as a strippe Review originally posted on The Book Adventures of Annelise Lestrange I received this copy through NetGalley in exchange of an honest review Let s Langlais correct pour les Nuls go DThe StoryVince Pagano loves his job Despite all bad things people usually say when you reveal that you are a stripper Vince regrets nothing as he wins aood deal at his club has time for his hobby blacksmithing in the case and hot dates The only shadow in his mind is his ex CharlieFive years ago Charlie broke up with Vince after discovering Vince s real job and as much as he would like Vince knows he s not over Charlie yet And being forced to seek shelter with the man after running from were rats in the middle of the night is not helping matters in the slightest How can Vince Constantly Craving get over his ex if the man is just the same as he was back then forood and badCharlie in the other hand regrets how things turned up for them despite being the one that broke things up Being a vampire Charlie felt how empty his life used to be before Vince entered it and missed the Beaten and marked for sacrifice to an Aztec God Charlie will do anything keep him safe Vince has never forgiven himself for the lie that ended things with Charlie The spark between them is as hot as ever and Vince would.
285 starsWhat would tempt an over three hundred years in the closet vampire to come out and start living That s the A Preface to Democratic Theory gist of the story mixed in with power hungry personage in supernatural worldI can t really say I like this book It is the first of a new series Austin Immortals but I personally felt like starting smack in the middle of something then took off at a run The pace was rather erratic throughout though fortunately the main characters were likeable enough the supporting ones as well There was some clich like a bigoted character turned out to be an even bigger douche Also huge letdown that something or someone who were described to be oh so powerful could be so easily subdued Or a newly embraced witch managed to do something big from reading and luck So it s kind of ups and downs experience for me reading thisCharlie was not exactly an outcast but the odd one out among the vampires society he rarely mixed in or attended any functions with them though he wasood friend with the vampire ueen s favoured fledging He was born in the time being Aryan Idols gay couldet him being lynched and even had suffered through one which made him VERY reluctant to be outVince the young human Charlie fell in love with did not have an easy life either He was kick out of his home by his father upon coming out and turned to Charlie for shelter Until a lie revealed and when Charlie thought Vince cheating on him he sent him packing without so much of by your leave But the five years since taught Vince to be himself and rew up Though he wouldn t dreamt of seeing Charlie again if he didn t et himself entangled in some vampires situationsThe romance between these two was okay I Bourdieus Secret Admirer in the Caucasus guess though I didn t particularly like the last public scene but Eh Okay But the world building and all those things with vampires society witches and other supernatural beings were not so clear There were stuff remained unsettled here I don t know whether it s for next books in the series or the author didn t feel it necessary to divulge Just for uite a long book it frustrated me not to see all loose ends tied up Note ARC was kindly provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review This was an amazing story and if you like vampire stories at all I highly recommend you read it The only thing and it s a tiny thing I don t love is that the next book 15 is heterosexual romance which completely bums me out HOWEVER this book is standalone and just one of the most beautiful and perfect love stories I have read in a long time Plus it s also a fabulous and exciting story all by itself withreat world building and wonderful characters My notesVery cool that all the vampires were short for nowadays That s something that always bugs me in other books This is so ood Different exciting lots of uestions revealed bit by bit I thought bites at the neck were for killing but that s where Cash bit Rhy After the altercation with Alaric Charlie went down in my opinion uite a bit I m not sure why he was being rational but still I like that the old vampires stick to the opinions of their early years It s natural Wonderful that they have adults who were foster children living with their birth mother Very real A spiral handle would hurt if used to stab and thus the rip wouldn t be as tight You think sex will interfere with a pagan ritual You clearly know nothing about paganismRegular strippers don t make that kind of money view spoilerThe vampires were begging to come in They could have just sprinkles the bespelled blood out the window hide spoiler If you love vampires if you love mm romance if you love a well crafted story if you love all of these things then you MUST buy read this book I am head over heels for these men not just because they re sexy vampires it doesn t hurt though The women are pretty awesome too From Charlie Vince right through to Rhiannon Javier each of the pe DNF at 25%I have read Jax Garren s stories before with Tales of the Underlight series which I uite enjoyed That was basically the reason why when I saw this book being offered as Read Now at NetGalley I wanted to Byzantium give it a try even if the novella of this universe that being self published a year ago didn t blown my mind Unfortunately I think maybe her magic was lost on me once againThe world build about the vampires witches the CoVin the tzitzi was sketchy and fuzzy I felt like I was dropped into a middle of something that had beenoing on for a while and I was left to wonder on my own This was the same feeling that I experienced with the novella that was said as a preuel somewhat It was unclear to me as a reader It is like the idea stays inside the mind of the author and doesn t delivered to me who doesn t know how the author s brain works It is definitely NOT an experience I enjoy when it comes to reading urban fantasy series And I have read enough to know what I like and dislike about the Contacts Desired genreOther thing relates to Charlie and Vince s previous relationship Second chance theme is my most favorite trope in romance I love the idea of two people who are actually right for one another but maybe the timing is not right the first time around Then they meet again and realize the chemistry is still there and decide toive it another shot I love that so much It dilutes the idea of instant love because the two people have history I ve read uite a number of this theme where the story starts after the break up I don t have any issues on that In this book however I felt the history of Charlie and Vince it was said that they were friends before lovers that Vince knew Charlie since he was nin. In a world of dark spells and blood ties where no one is safe love is the most powerful magic of all Shy vampire Charlie never intended to see Vince again after the bad boy human broke his heart But when Vince turns up.
