Publisher's Summary

Hayden Taylor is running out of time.

After going to bed with a beautiful woman he met at a bar, Hayden discovers he has an unquenchable thirst and the body of a pro athlete. Between the six pack abs and the extreme hangover, he can't decide if last night was a good thing or...something else.

Hayden quickly discovers that, if left unchecked, this thirst could end up killing him, but only if he fails to find the woman who turned him.

What's more, there's something unique about him, even among the vampires. Hayden isn't like the rest of them. There's something in his blood - something magical, almost otherworldly - and it's beginning to attract the wrong kind of attention.

Warning: This book contains a harem, violence, and cursing.

Predictable and tasteless (not my thing)

The main character is a dullard and doesn't seem to be able to put two and two together at times when he really should be able to(or at least have an inkling of what's going on). This causes the main character to be fairly obnoxious and annoying at times. The gratuitous sex and rather predictable plot points made me not enjoy this book very much. Seriously if you read a decent amount almost everything is rather predictable and you will see coming a mile away. I feel that there was potential here but it was squandered. If the plot was a little more complex, less predictable and the characters less one-dimensional other aspects of the book probably wouldn't have bothered me too much. The vampires feel more like succubi/incubi that occasionally need to drink blood. The plot itself almost feels like it was come up with by an adolescent who reads too much ecchi shounen manga. It's short enough to where it wasn't really a big deal to finish it. But I will not continue to read this series.

Not my cup of tea

Something about undead bar skanks doesn’t do it for me, go figure. Nothing wrong with the writing and the narrator doesn’t stutter but I just couldn’t get invested in the characters.

Such a let down

It was pretty good for the first third, narrator is great but the writer is just to much of an amateur. Story drags, emotionless empty sex scenes, a character who gets in a RAGE overtime there is a fight, a lot of blah blah blah dialogue that is just pointless, and just all around boring characters. I’ll give him that Hayden is kinda funny but everyone is just way to one dimensional and plain. Vampires that feed off sex or just Sucubi/Incubi that suck blood your choice, either way the sex craving thing gets annoying.

An incredible set of characters

This one was so good, I couldn't stop listening. The characters were especially fun. I really dug the protagonist's dual identity as a sorcerer and a vampire. Whoever came up with this is very creative. Let's have more original ideas like this one!

had potential but you goofed it up

right so the sex scenes are sexy the fight scenes are exciting and our main character is too dumb to live he walks around through the entirety of this book with a sense of entitlement and women just throw themselves at his feet because once again he is the special and not through any action of his own we can at least take solace in the fact that dumb he maybe the guy at least does know how to take action if you can look past someone that is so infuriatingly stupid but it kills the joy of everything else then you might enjoy this book mean I'm done
