A new life in New Orleans is all Jason Thorpe had hoped: His quaint little store attracts a devoted staff, and his warm, loving heart grants him a loyal circle of friends. He's perfectly content, having left behind the chill of a confusing and danger-filled night in Washington, until he discovers something unbelievable lurking in the steamy darkness of the shadowy streets of the Vieux Carré, something that turns out to be terrifying and utterly mesmerizing.

Jason annoyed me, I kept hoping he would wise up. who goes walking the streets at night when someone is trying to kill you. the world in the story was exciting a very different take on vampires that I like. the ending was a bit abrupt .

Tristan Carr has been in a holding pattern since his daughter was born 15 years ago, which suits his workaholic lifestyle just fine. This ex-naval officer turned auto mechanic never wanted anyone interfering with being a weekend dad. For Tristan to rearrange his carefully orchestrated life, a guy will need to be special. Or, in the case of the newest employee at his bank, the guy will need to be adorable, shy, and open to the prospect of forever when it shows up at his window.

Call Me by Your Name first swept across the world in 2007. It is the story of a sudden and powerful romance that blossoms between an adolescent boy and a summer guest at his parents' cliffside mansion on the Italian Riviera. During the restless summer weeks, unrelenting but buried currents of obsession, fascination, and desire intensify their passion as they test the charged ground between them and verge toward the one thing both already fear they may never truly find again: total intimacy.

It's been a few weeks since Dylan Warner wolfed out and killed Andy, the crazed werewolf who originally turned him and later tried to murder Chris Nock. Architect Dylan and handyman Chris are still refurbishing Dylan's old house as they work out the structure of their relationship. They come from very different backgrounds, and neither has had a long-term lover before, so negotiating their connections would be challenge enough even if Dylan didn't turn into a beast once a month.

i wish i had listened to the prior reviews. the dominance and submission was too much. jory is a spineless ####- 3 years and you go right back really? i cant finish the book , i am just irritated by this story line. i liked the first book , the element's of his submission was there, but not so overt . this book from chapter 2 on its shoved in your face. i bearly liked jory in the first book only felt sorry because ppl were trying to kill him. Now i wish he had gotten karmic payback with interest.

overal good story. but i have two issue.
in the middle of the book the main character now has to go on a journey, unless i missed something the importance of this journey was not revealed until he was about to set out. i forgave the author and just went with it.

the end of the book is the other issue, it just stops. all that he wanted to accomplish , the unity of all the packs that was supposed to be the kings job . the book seems to have been cut off.

Then Sam meets Mitch Tedsoe, an independent long-haul trucker who makes a delivery to a shop across the alley. Innocent flirting quickly leads to a fling, and when Mitch offers to take him on a road trip west, Sam jumps at the chance for adventure.

the basic foundation of this book is about sex, but i must admit at times it was too much. it was one sexual episode after the other. having said all that the overall story was pretty good and i loved the narrator voice so much.
