Jezebel has a new job writing a sex column for a small specialty interest paper in Vancouver, British Columbia, and attends a very specialized party…a sex party, in fact, where she meets two of the most tempting men she could’ve ever imagined. And to make it that much more tempting, they are vampires, one curiosity Jezebel can’t shed. Adrian and Doros watch her with growing desire, craving to take a knowing human, from who they didn’t have to cut their true selves off from. One they could play with to their heart’s content. The moment they meet Jezebel, it’s already over. There’s no contest, and now only one question remains: Will she want them, as much as they want her?
Let me begin by saying that cover is pretty gorgeous. Yes, I always feel the need to say these things. It hints at this darkish yummy vibe, I just loved it as soon as I laid eyes on.
Now, as you all know by now, I’m all for some hot and steamy reading. This was hot and steamy, without a doubt. It was also a first for me, my first time giving the 3some layout (so to speak, lol) a chance. I tend to shy away from it, somehow they seem less…intimate?, then a regular couple. I associate the real steam with couple dynamics, those hardcore deep emotions of belonging and possessing and such, you know? So this was a really new reading situation for me.
That being said, I was surprised by how much I was with it. Of course, it helps that this is a quickie, the pace of events is alert and steamy through and through, sort of like this rush from word one to the last. I enjoyed it, I was curious about the characters and I liked how in a rather short span of events the author managed to give each character a distinctively personal feel, a sort of unique vibe if you will.
My favorite, of course, was Adrian. He felt more like the possessive sort of vampire, the really charismatic sort that appeals to me. Of them all, he was my favorite, and I’d love to read a book or two about him, staring him, containing him. He was that cool and delicious 😀
The writing flowed well, it was accessible, direct without becoming too graphic. I’m not a big fan of that graphic sort of writing steamy, believe it or not, lol, I like my hot reads to be real active in content but classy in writing :D. So I liked this one.
All in all, I say if you’re curious about some paranormal hot stuff and want to experiment with reading a 3some scenario, this would be a very valid option, it’s quick, it’s alert, it’s hot.
