In this third book of the series we get a closer look at the newly turned and highly volatile vampire, Jenner. Jenner is a vampire with insatiable appetites. Be it blood or sex, he never seems to be able to do it in moderation. He has lost control and fears for himself and those around him. He goes on benders sleeping with and taking blood from countless women. He has been given the task of protecting a coven master's niece. But the last thing he wants is to babysit a rich and spoiled brat.
Bria has been sheltered all her life, she is a veritable prisoner in her uncle's coven. Even though she doesn't know the exact nature of the danger that is after her, she knows that it's something extemely dangerous and lethal. The only freedom she has is the secret treasure hunts that she goes on at night. But when an attack on her coven forces her into a new life , she comes face to face with a man who is fated to be her everything. Bria may be nothing like the women that Jenner is used to, but she is the only one for him. But how can Jenner let go of the feeling that he is dangerous for her when he is the only man capable of protecting her from the dark forces that are after her?
This series is full of great characters and we get to meet even more new characters in this book. I am absolutely hooked and I can't wait to see whose story will be next! I really hope that it will be Siobhan's story :)
A sizzling and exciting read for all fans of paranormal romance. Not to be missed!!!
Thank you Netgalley and St. Martin's Press for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I absolutely love this series, Kate Baxter brings another couple together through each book, whilst still running the bigger story concurrently.
I must admit the space between books means it takes me a few chapters to refresh myself on the whole Sortiari situation, but it never takes long for me to get right back into the story.
The Dark Vampire is Eric Jenner’s story, we have seen glimpses of him through the previous books although the author hasn’t given a huge amount about what makes this guy tick away, you are given the impression he is a vampire with only a few specific requirements.
Bria Fairchild, has pretty much spent her life locked away behind the closed doors of her uncles compound, he believes it is for her protection, but little does he know that she spends her evenings sneaking around town in her own special way…
Jenner is your typical gruff, growly alpha Vampire, so when Bria’s uncle brings her to Mikhail’s mansion with life ending injuries one evening, the last thing he expects is for their souls to tether to each other after she has been turned, as she is in essence the opposite of everything he is, and he believes himself completely unworthy of a woman so beguiling and pure.
Her presence was the calming warmth to his cold cruelty. Her touch a gentle balm to his abrasive violence.
Except she isn’t as innocent as he initially assumed, and what ensues is a battle of wills, hormones and pretty much everything in-between for them.
"You blood is like a drug… Just a sip and I’m wired."
Bria wants him, but he is not sure he can hold onto his control well enough to be the gentle and caring lover he thinks she needs.
"I know you want me… Why don’t you do something about it."
I absolutely devoured this book, the push and pull between this pair that plays out around the bigger story going on made it totally unputdownable. Both vulnerable in their own ways, Jenner believes he is doing the best for his mate when he tries to keep her away from the action and out of his bed, when in essence he is doing the same to her, as her uncle has done for the previous ten years.
"Today is the first day of my existence."
Reading her fighting her way through and out of that over-protective shell that both men try to keep around her was really enjoyable.
The Last True Vampire series has got plenty of life left in it yet, lots of questions still remain unanswered in the main theme of the story, and with a plethora of secondary characters including Chelle, Siobhan and Lucas that I want to see find their own Happy endings… Well as happy as they can be when you have half the Supernatural world wanting to kill, capture or drink your blood! I cannot wait for more from this series and hopefully soon!
This is a turning point.

Now Bria, I did like. She seemed so sweet and innocent, however once I got to know her I realised how strong and determined she was. Bria was the perfect match for Jenner because she wouldn't put up with any of his crap. I was eagerly waiting for Bria and Jenner to get together, longing for the story to hot up and for me to change my feelings for Jenner, however Kate Baxter kept me waiting quite some time before any of those things happened. Bria and Jenner's relationship was not as straightforward as I would have liked.
Once Bria and Jenner did finally become a couple, the sparks flew and I wasn't surprised. This author is brilliant at writing passionate sex scenes between her star couples, so I was fully prepared for some hot reading! I loved seeing Bria and Jenner together, it was a relief to finally see them so in love. The only problem was that there was so much going on around them that I felt there wasn't enough time to enjoy Bria and Jenner's relationship. Out of the three books so far, I thought that this one focussed more on the other characters of the paranormal world rather than just the main couple, so I was left feeling like I didn't get enough Bria and Jenner.
I am yet to discover if this is the last book in the series or if others will follow. I am sure that there is room for other books with the characters that I am still to explore and because I have enjoyed this series so far, I will be keeping my eyes peeled for another instalment.

Although this is the third book in Ms Baxter's "Last True Vampire" series, you can read this as a standalone as each book has a different romantic couple.
Sometimes I've skipped pages just to get past the needless inner monologue!!! Will stick with it for the moment.
