Publisher's Summary

My name is Ezra Clarke, and I’m 23.

Forever.

If you’re counting in vampire years, I’m actually 208, and if living that long has taught me anything, it’s that nothing lasts forever. And that’s been fine. It’s...whatever. I’ve never wanted anything that long, anyway, which is why I’ve never taken a mate, but that all changed when I met Declan Byrne.

He’s young, handsome, and he doesn’t do what I tell him to. He smells like cinnamon and has eyes that remind me of the daytime sky. Every kiss we share feels like home, and no touch lasts long enough.

I need him to be mine.

And for the briefest moment he is, and life is perfect...and then it isn’t. Rogue vampires threaten to pull us apart, and complicated politics are painful reminders that a world exists beyond our privacy of our bedroom.

But if anyone thinks they can keep me away from Declan, they have another thing coming. My mate and I have a thousand lifetimes to live, and we’re just getting started.

Can we just get a decent story, please???

While the overall plot and narrator were good, the over-abundance of constant sex scenes detracts from decent storytelling. Not sure why that just because it's M/M that it automatically means 4 hours of sex and 2 hours of actual story. it's frustrating to say the least. These books are not free.

A fated mates vampire romance!🧛‍♂️❤️

This was such a sweet paranormal, low angst vampire romance with fated mates.

The characters were likeable and well fleshed out and I loved the world building absolutely fabulous!
The author's writing style was engaging and enjoyable.

Christopher Rourke did an outstanding audio delivery. His narration made this story all the more compelling and entertaining.

SO GOOD!

I really loved this book. Great story line. Little angst. SO MANY SEXY TIMES. Narration was awesome. I think Christopher Rourke going to be a popular new narrator. I overall highly recommend this book.

kinky emo vampire goodness

Interesting characters and some unexpected rules about vampirism made this book fly by! The narrator captured the essence of the characters well, including mr. broody vamp.

I have a new favorite narrator

I usually read Kate's books in kindle form but I wanted to see if the audio was any good, and boy was I suprised that I fell for this voice.

While there were times that the narrator lost the inflection used for different characters, it didn't take me out of the story.

The vampire mates setup was really sweet and the sex scenes was hot, I can't wait until the next book.

A bloody vampire romance

When I first read this book, I wasn't a fan of how unexpectedly violent and bloody it was. I still think some content warnings are in order for torture, gore, and violence, but I admit that I enjoyed this audio significantly more after preparing myself for a rocky journey. Ezra and Declan's romance started off deceptively calmly, with plenty of steam and filthy love-making but little overall danger. As the storyline outside the romance developed, I was equal parts thrilled and horrified to see the events of this story take a sharp turn into violence and bloodshed. These vampires are not messing around when it comes to mates, politics, and territorial disputes, and it was darkly fascinating to see just how far they would go to get what they wanted. Some of the worst moments made me actually sick to think about, but even during those times the thinnest thread of hope kept me listening on for a happy ending. While I was undeniably satisfied by where these characters ended up at the end of it all, I don't know if I'd call Ezra and Declan's ending a traditional happily-ever-after. Despite wanting to pretend everything is back to normal, these two still have a lot of emotional baggage to work through, and I wish the author had explored their healing stages more. Despite that, I really enjoyed this narrator's performance and the uniquely fascinating world Kate Hawthorne has built.

Dark, Erotic with a good storyline.

All I can say is wow! It's been a while since I have found good MM Vampires and this fits the bill. no sparkles but a good romance, especially if you like it very erotic and no holds barred. believe it or not, a dark story can get you in the feels. I had my hand over my mouth or gasping a few times and will admit to tears near the end!
Christopher Rourke is fairly new to me but I will say he did a knock-out job on this book. I will definitely be coming back for more!

Bloody hot

If you are afraid of blood, this is not a story for you! There's vampires and a lots of blood and sex and bloody sex! I would've liked some more background story but I'm a sucker for vampires so yes, I liked this book.
The narrator was new to me. I like his voice and he did a nice work!

Kinky broody vampires!

Vampires are completely hit or miss for me and this one was definitely a hit. I absolutely loved broody vampire Ezra and thought Declan and his desperate to be loved ways were perfect for him. Together they were completely in love (I love a good soulmates story) and so kinky and steamy together. There was a good amount of suspense and drama too so I was constantly on the edge of my seat waiting for how it would all turn out. I really really hope Hawthorne writes more in this universe!
This was also my first time listening to a book narrates by Christopher Rourke and it was absolutely amazing. I hope to see his work more in the future.

Hello, sexy vampires

Well, this was interesting for sure! A vampire story with a Kate Hawthorne’s take, which, for any of you who haven’t read this author before, means a lot of delicious kinkiness!
I loved broody Ezra, sort of stuck in a limbo of forever being 23, and really not wanting to grow up and become an adult! And I positively adored Declan, the fierceness he has in everything in his life (and afterlife) is something to behold!
I enjoyed both the general plot, with the vampire politics in the works, and the romance part with the mating aspect was so good!
I didn’t know Christopher Rourke, but I found he was a food match for both characters.

Interesting take on vampires!

Story: The world building and honest to the point of pain take on vampires (and their politics) was a very refreshing quality in this story. Declan and Ezra's story was very enjoyable and I loved how imperfect they were. Their chemistry was absolutely brilliant!
Narration: A good voice! I liked the performance a lot!

Love this book and loved the narration too

The story is amazing, the narrator was new to me, but it was really enjoyable.

I loved listening to it, it held my interest and I enjoyed Ezra and Declan.

I will re-listen to it because I love this book and I need some scenes again and again ;)

Holy fcking GOD! I'm crying because it was so perfect. It was so much more and way better than I thought! And I was so afraid of this book, because it was very different from Kate. But I think this book is the proof that why Kate is one of my favorite author. She can write anything and everything and I'd love it!

Loved Ezra's character, and I mean I LOVED him a LOT! Cute, hot, bit nerd, young and vampire! I just loved everything about him.
And then there's Declan. He was cute too and loved how they fell in love and their relationship was SO GOOD. Good God, that soul mate thing, aww, still my heart.

I was afraid that we wouldn't get enough vampirism from the book, but fck yessss, it was totally vamp! So so good! I mean, vampires are my weakness, and i'm picky about perfect vampire books, but THIS, I can't tell enough how good it was.

But that thing with that human girl (sorry, forgot her name)... that was cruel! :( But I forgive, because the ending was perfect.

PERFECT!

amazing!!

I love vampire stories and this was amazing. I liked the lore and I enjoyed the politics. It was suspenseful and sad at times. But mostly I loved Ezra and Declan.They were perfect together and I just couldn't get enough. I can't wait for more stories in this world. And the narrator was absolutely brilliant. He brought the characters to life in the best way
