For one night, Xeno wants to be the centre of someone’s attention. He doesn’t bargain on becoming the most important member of the Fae guardians.

Xeno’s life suddenly changes when he takes another chance with the five men he met on Beltaine. Seeing them again awakens not only Xeno’s deep-seated desires but also a connection the Fae need.

What happens when Xeno agrees to move in? How will that impact the rest of his life? Xeno is about to find out the answers to those questions and a whole lot more. Is he ready to find out the truth and embrace his life as a member of the Fae? Only Xeno can answer those questions. Should be an interesting journey.

Review:  First in the Delectable Vines series

This is the first book of a series that centres on Xeno who thinks he’s human, and the five members of the Fae Guardians. There are gorgeous guys, and sex aplenty, but I wasn’t hooked enough by the storyline.

Xeno had a one-night stand with all five fae while at a masque ball. They found in him someone who completes them all, and search for him only to find he’s the younger brother of someone they know.

Xeno can’t believe five gorgeous men would want or need him, but he doesn’t turn them down. He also seems to go from shy to tease with remarkable ease.

He agrees to move in with them when his ex-boyfriend turns up expecting to pick up where he left off. When he does Rex, the leader of the guardians, has what may be a bad feeling, but is just happy to have Xeno there.

The book ends at this point. Although there are questions about who and what Xeno and the guardians are, they story didn’t pull me in.


However, if you like fae, ménage, multiple partners, and lots of hot sex, this might be for you.
