The main theme of this series, of which Custom Toys Made to Order is the first book, is to pair sexually awkward young men with more experienced partner; a group of six friends, Atticus Drake, Thaddeus Young, Nigel Durbin, Brenner West, Cedric Barrows, and Dorian Elder (so I suppose there will be at least 6 books) own and operate Fantasy Creations, a company producing custom made sex toys for paranormal creatures. The strange thing is that all of them are virgins, nerds who have never had a chance to "test" the toys they produce.
Atticus "Atty" Drake meets his mate, vampire prince Salem Constantine and everything seems perfect, if not for the fact that Salem has to marry in less than a month and his consort has to be a vampire. Turning a shapeshifter into a vampire is a cruel thing, an act that can push the newly made vampire into suicide. There is a bit of drama due to this subplot but this is basically a sweet and sexy romance; Atty's awkwardness is endearing, when his feline comes out he seems more a domestic pet than a wild animal, but nevertheless Salem loves that hidden side of his mate.
I also liked that the play role of both main characters were not rigid; sure Salem is the more experienced partner, and probably the dominant one, but he is not the usual obsolete Alpha male, he is able to be "light" and funny, and to conquer Atty more with tenderness than dominance.
If you enjoy the more lighter paranormal romances, give this author a chance, I bet you will not be disappointed.
I liked this more traditional romance trope of a virginal hero and his intended. Ms. Evans was able to convey the attraction and eventual love between the two men who had such differing personalities, but ultimately meshed. I was drawn into the mystery of this paranormal universe and the world building was engrossing. Also, I loved Atticus' friends -- who I am sure will have their own books with their own mates - and how they supported each other through tough times.
With a fun cast of characters, some interesting world building and smokin' hot sex scenes between the two main protagonists, this series is off to a good start. I look forward to book two.

Oh what a delightful beginning to a new series. I completely fell for Atticus and his five friends - they own a sex toy company but none of them have any practical experience! Read morePublished on May 12, 2013 by Christy Duke
