Nature made them adversaries, but one glance ignites a lust stronger than the need for blood.
After 200 years, the nightlife has lost its allure for Reese. A leader among his kind, owner of a nightclub that serves as a banquet of nubile flesh and hot blood, he is bored out of his mind.
His heart hasn’t stirred in over a century.
Born to a line of vampire hunters, Will ventures out every day after dark to track down those creatures who have crossed the line from feeding to murder, and destroy them.
All he wants is one night off to drink and dance and maybe get laid.
Too bad it’s not his lucky night. Or maybe it is?
Not even witnessing Will stake one of his brethren is enough to quell the lust that Reese feels from his first glimpse of the gorgeous hunter. And though Will knows how dangerous it could be to take the sensual invitation in Reese’s dark eyes, he can’t resist.
Why fight when they could fuck instead?
One of the things I love about books in the supernatural genre is that you get to suspend your disbelief and just go with whatever the author throws at you.
Reese is a vampire who’s grown bored with the immortal life he’s been living. Nothing seems to catch his interest anymore.
Will is a hunter who’s incredibly hot and always ready to do his job, although he really would love a night off to have some fun.
When these two men meet, there’s more than just sparks flying…there’s fireworks.
Once they establish who they are, the danger for both of them should keep them at arm’s length, but it just makes the want burn hotter.
I loved the chat between the two main characters and their friends at the beginning of the story. It sets us up for what’s to come. The author does a great job with the snappy dialogue that helps build the sexual tension to a frenzied peak.
And the sex? So damn hot that my computer was in danger of overheating (so was I). For such a short story, it certainly delivered big time.
Looking for something hot that will also make you smile? Then this is the story for you. I’m usually left wanting something more with a story this short, but while I could read a whole lot more about Will and Reese, it’s one of the few times that a short story didn’t leave me feeling cheated.
