Publisher's Summary

Svente vampire Ava Sanchez has a difficult decision to make: Should she accept the invitation of the Grand High Master Vampires and join their legion? It will mean leaving behind her brother and her home. It will also mean working with Pagori vampire Salem McCauley. Unlike the majority of vampirekind, she doesn't fear Mr. Tall, Blond, and Dauntless...even if he does have some psychopathic traits. In fact, he has a raw sexuality that tempts her to drop her 'no relationships' rule and give him exactly what he wants from her - everything. 

Salem McCauley doesn't like anything cute, or sweet, or cheery. Yet he wants Ava with a desperation that's bordering on obsession. And shockingly, she doesn't look at him like others do - you know, like they fear he'll rip out their spinal cord for fun. Now that the legion will be busy hunting the players involved in the creation of an illegal vampiric brothel, there's no time for pursuing Ava. But Salem makes time, because he never denies himself what he wants, and he always holds tight to what's his. And that's exactly what Ava is, whether she knows it or not: his.

Another great addition to this series

Like the other books in this series, this book was well written and kept the reader wanting to know what happens next.

Unfortunately like many of Suzanne Wrights other female characters, I think she slightly misses the mark with the heroine. Instead of smart independent and strong, we get bitchy and rude a lot of the time. Not the admirable qualities their sold to the reader as being, unfortunately Ms Wright’s hero’s often miss the mark slightly when their over the top behaviour and attitude is excused or minimised as ‘alpha’ behaviour. The male overprotective qualities are just this side of ‘power over’ and controlling, which is not respectful of the women they supposedly admire and love.

Luckily Ms Wright is a good enough author that she is able develop layers in her characters which helps to make the reader care what happens and overlook a few cringe moments. The world development is amazing and the story concept is absorbing, making this series a very worthwhile purchase.

Very sexy romantic twist

At first I didn’t care for her too bubbly, quirky character & his too slow, laid back appearance, but they soon grew on me when I learned their reasons. This storyline was quiet different & had several twists & turns that kept you enthralled in the story & all the characters. The sex was extremely hot & erotic like, loved it. Can’t wait for more.

Love the female narrator

Justine Eyre is definitely added to one of my favorite narrators to listen to. Also I love Suzanne Wright writing. I just wish that the Author didn't use the Male narrator because Justine Eyre did a better job and can do a male voice better then him .
I will be finishing this series but I don't know if I'll listen to anymore of her books because I feel that the Author doesn't pick good narrator's except for Justine. Sad because I enjoy her take on the supernatural word. It definitely is better then Underworld the movie

Entertaining Yet Less Fulfilling

This series has exciting storylines but this being the 4th book it seemed to have a number of reused pieces. I love the female narrator and Eva’s character! However, I was considerably less than impressed with the male narrator’s accent. In my opinion, the male lead character is well written just not well executed audibly. I will be looking for a different series to start. I won’t hold my breath for the next one in this series.

Good

Book 4 features a new couple. There was still plenty of Sam and Jared so it felt like a smooth transition in the series.

I liked both main characters, more Salem. He is the broody, dangerous but very protective hero. Ava pushed away a little too much for my liking but she was a likable character.

The series overall is good, just a rough beginning in book 1 that I think is still affecting my overall feelings of the series. I like it enough, I'm still going to read the next book.

There’s no going back

Consumed is the fourth book in the Deep in Your Veins Series. My favorite Vampires are back and hotter than ever! Ava Sanchez has been invited to join the ranks of the Grand High Master Vampires. Joining the ranks will mean fighting the good fight alongside her crush Salem McCauley. As Ava and Salem grow closer together their attraction expands to an unbelievable level. With testosterone, passion, and vampire powers galore, the stakes are high for Ava and Salem to find their happily ever after together!

Told in multiple POV, Consumed offers another blockbuster paranormal hit that will leave Wright fans salivating for more. The action and suspense are off the charts and of course, we get a full dose of the entire crew to keep us entertained the entire read. This series will never get old and with such a fantastical world to explore, I look forward to more from these smoking hot vamps!

Overall, I highly recommend this series to any paranormal romance fans. Suzanne Wright is by far my go-to author when it comes to magical creatures of any kind. Her spunky females and alpha males always keep me on the edge of my seat the entire read. I am looking forward to the next in the series for sure!

Suzanne is AWESOME!!

When an author can bring in characters from her other books seamlessly (Knox Thorne) and tie the story line together so enjoyable, then you have a winner. For Ava to know demons and have the intersectionality of two powerful immortals made this book one of my favorite plots.

The female narrator did not alter the lead character voice enough from the lead of the 1st 3 books making her sound like Sam. That was hard to listen too.

I still enjoyed it greatly!

Another Great Book

I love everything she writes I will say this book is a little different than Sam and Jared’s story because that put there story into one story. But it does bring Knox into the story and you finally know the story the is referred to in “Darkness In You” which I really enjoyed.

A Traumatic Backdrop To A Passionate Romance.

Suzanne Wright has become one of my favourite authors. I love her writing style, the pace she set for her stories and the gripping plot-lines. The characters she creates are complex souls that exhibited all the traits that I crave. The vampire world that she has created for this series feels fresh and new, while still being totally credible.

I couldn't stop listening to this audiobook.

Justine Eyre and P. J. Ochlan took the roles of our protagonists, Ava and Salem. I enjoyed the variation that these actors brought to the duel point of view. Justine's performance encapsulated Ava, whose personality shone through in not only the dialogue but the narrative too. Ochlan's ability to produce the distinctive accents that Salem and the rest of the legion were written with was outstanding. Together, Justine and Ochlan transported me into the story.

While we're talking about the characters. I engage with a story more when the female protagonist exhibits certain personality traits. She needs to be intelligent, resilient, resourceful, self-reliant and have plenty of gumption. We'd met Ava before in the previous book so I already liked her: she ticked all my boxes and then some. Ava also has a great sense of humour, sarkiness and an innate sense of right and wrong that I love. Salem has been part of the series since the beginning but I was nervous that he was too stoic and overprotective for me to see him as a swoon worthy hero. However, Suzanne knew what she was doing and did that on purpose, revealing Salem's layers and hidden guilt through this story, while giving us a true soul-saving romance.

Consumed made me feel so many emotions!

Yes, I did growl like a wild woman at times in frustration and anger. Shedding a tear or two when things got too awful or damn romantic for words. However, the banter and humour throughout this story meant that I often had a soppy smile on my face or was chuckling out loud. ;-)

Consumed was a bloody good book. However, there are explicit sexual scenes, graphic violence, colourful vocabulary and expletives throughout this story. Therefore I'd only recommend it to adults who are not offended by content of this sort. Readers who love stories about kickass heroines and the deserving alphas who fight for their affection. Adult paranormal romance lovers who can read books with gritty story-lines about exploitation and fighting for what's right.

Good story but

If u like a good fantasy romance with some action it’s good BUT the female narrator has the driest lips when pronouncing words starting and ending in Ps and Bs it becomes very distracting

Consumed

I did enjoy this book. To a point the narrator sadly made Salem sound bloody awful, he sounded as though he was a dumb idiot who couldn't string two words together And for me bordered on real ideation a real flaky character. But she was funny at times I was not really surprised that Suzanne added in Knox Thorn from the burn book series which I have listened to many times. The story was very much the same as the first book which a previous review had warned all in all of was not as good as the previous books in the series but still worth a listen if you can get past the narration of poor Salem

Ok

This book was pretty much a copy of the first just from the point of view of different characters. Same cat and mouse games between a couple and a ridiculous amount of sex scenes which does get pretty boring after a while. Could've been so much better

A fabulous Addition to the Series.

This fourth book in the Deep In Your Veins Series by Suzanne Wright is equally as enjoyable as the previous audiobooks in this series. The whole series has been consistent in character depth and quality and this made this book like a visit with the wonderful characters of which I have become so fond and the few new equally wonderful members of The Legion.

There are sexy scenes, battle scenes, humour and emotional scenes all twisted together in a wonderful tapestry of words. This book is exactly what I have come to expect of the writing by Suzanne Wright, she is always consistent in setting, rules and details.

The narration by Justine Eyre, P. J. Ochlan is as wonderful as the previous audiobooks in the series. P.J’s English accent has actually improved. Maybe he became more comfortable with the accent and the Irish accent sounded authentic in comparison to the accents of Irish people that I have known. All in all the consistant character representation and accents throughout the series and the high quality of narration that I have come to expect was present in Consumed. It was a complete pleasure to listen to.
