After a night of mind blowing pleasure with the five men, Joel is shocked to learn who these men truly are and who they say he is to them. Joel isn’t ready for what they offer him and he runs, concentrating on his story, when suddenly Joel disappears.
When Raven and the others learn that Joel has gone missing, they know he is in danger and they must find him before it’s too late. And if they find him, will they be able to convince Joel that he belongs with them?
Review: I love vampire stories and even more so when other paranormals are added to the mix. However this book seriously lacked a solid story line for me as it was mostly sex scenes, yes I know this is an erotica book but come on, with a little story thrown in the mix.
Raven has to find his other mate before his time runs out and he is forced to let someone else rule. Joel was a little cutie who is a reporter. He gets himself in trouble looking into a story when he runs from his mates not understanding what is going on seeing as he’s human.
Sorry, but I just did not like this book. Maybe a little less pages upon pages of nothing but sex in the next book and I’ll love it.
