With a new species of vampire stalking the streets, the stakes are high. But that’s not the only reason hearts are on the line.

Danny Reynolds thought Kieran McCade was the one—true love and hot lust forever—until Danny found out Kier’s bloody secret and ran away screaming. Months later, Danny is facing his own paranormal crisis, and he needs Kieran’s help, but are there enough ways to apologize for breaking a vampire’s heart?

Nothing about Danny’s transformation is normal—not the attack that led to it, and not the symptoms Danny’s plagued with—but being in close proximity to Kieran is even worse than becoming a thing that goes bump in the night. Danny and Kieran aren’t the only things threatening to bump each other off, though. Secret organizations and clashing vigilante agendas want to get their hands on Danny. His only hope is to find a fix for his problem before he’s either captured or his abnormal transition starves him to death.

Danny and Kieran might have a real chance to repair their broken romance… but only if they keep Danny alive!

This was actually a really good read. I enjoyed all the suspense and the danger these vampires and humans went through in order to save those they either love or felt were treated unfairly.

Danny Reynolds works at the library. He loves his job but he loves having the access to be able to research things he may not have been able to do elsewhere. Everyone in the city knows that you need to be behind closed doors after dark since there are things that go bump in the night out there but Danny finds himself so engrossed one night in what he was researching hat he left late from the library.

Now Danny finds himself in a situation of needing the man that he all but ran from six months ago when he found out that he was a vampire. Even though Danny had been wanting to get back in touch with him before now, now he finds fate has stepped in and he has no choice but to get in contact with Kier again. Now it has become life or death.

When Danny walks back into Kier’s bar after so long, the first instinct is to make him turn around and leave again. But when Kier sees the distress Danny is under he cannot turn him away. And when all the symptoms Danny is showing leans towards him turning to a vampire himself but at the same time everything is happening unusually, Keir knows that Danny need his help.

This book was such an exciting read. I enjoyed the suspense and danger but I also enjoyed the re-connection between two men that loved one another but let their fears end what could have been. I hope that Rayna Vause decides to turn this into a series because from my point of view, it was left in a way that could be possible or things could just be left how they ended. Either way, this was an incredible read.

Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time. I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books. Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.
