My Rating: Five Sinfully Sexy Stars*****
Oh my! I love, love, love this collection! I've been a fan of A.K. Michaels work for years, especially her vampires and werewolves, so when I heard she'd created two Kindle World Collections dedicated specifically to her vision of their supernatural world and was allowing other writers to play in her sandbox, I was in paranormal heaven! lol... And the icing on the cake, quite a few of the guest authors are also some of my favorites, as is the case with Monica La Porta! I fell in love with La Porta's work after reading the first book in The Fifth Moon's Tales Series two years ago and have literally devoured everything she's released since. And once again, La Porta doesn't disappoint with Adrian: A Vampire's Thirst Kindle World Novella. If you haven't read any of the other books in the collection, no problem; you can read any or all of the stories in any order. Each release is a standalone read with no cheating, no cliffhanger, and always a happy ending! And this book is no exception! Adrian is a fast-paced, easy-to-follow paranormal tale filled to the brim with danger, drama, action, adventure, suspense, angst, heartache, passion, and sweet romance. The narrative is beautifully written in the third person with clearly discernible his and her perspectives. The dialogue is smart, well-executed, and flows effortlessly. But without a doubt, my favorite component of the story is the intriguing cast of well-developed characters, and this is one of the areas where La Porta truly excels. Her beautifully depicted world building, vividly depicted scenes, and larger than life characters are all truly exceptional! I was instantly smitten with Adrian! *sigh* Okay, I'll admit I'm a vampire groupie but ancient Roman vampire Adrian Alberti was just so hot and completely swoon-worthy! He was the hero of my dreams and such a gentleman... but with a very naughty side! lol... And halfbreed werewolf Lavinia Rossi was absolutely perfect for him. Lavinia may have seemed meek and inexperienced in the beginning of this story, but her bravery, loyalty, and love shine brightly as she navigates her way through her new life with Adrian which brings me to another component I truly loved about this story. La Porta also incorporated elements from Michaels' other Kindle World, A Wolf's Hunger! It was fabulous! Yes, Lavinia may have been a halfbreed, but she could shift and she could fight as well as any warrior, and her hunger for Adrian would not be denied! It always makes my little old heart flutter when a courageous, sweet heroine brings a strong alpha male to his knees, regardless of their species, and Lavinia did exactly that! I loved it!
No spoilers from me but I will say this... Charming, handsome, reclusive, ancient daywalker vampire who possessed money and power, could have any woman he desired, was always in control of his life and destiny(or so he thought), and was about to get the surprise of his very long life-check! Beautiful, innocent, inexperienced half-breed shewolf running from persecution, barely scraping by, and just trying to survive-check! Danger, drama, action, malevolent enemies, evil machinations, and a grandfather who would put the devil to shame-check! An undeniable vampire's thirst, an inescapable wolf's hunger, fiery attraction, explosive passion, heart-melting romance, and a love that will defy the laws of the universe-You bet! That and a whole lot more!
So, did I like this story? No, I LOVED it! Would I recommend it? You bet, and I am but only for adult readers! It does contain quite a few dreamy sex scenes along with several scenes containing explicit language and violence. But never fear, the bad guys do get their just reward! This book may not be a full-length 300 page novel but it packs quite a punch! And FYI, I declare Adrian and Lavinia to be the cleanest couple in the entire series with the most showers and baths on record! lol.. Will I read this author again? Absolutely! ANd finally, was I entertained? Completely! Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read!
Adrian ~Adrianus Valerius Alberti, Duke of Rome, Count of Marsala & Marquis of Venice; is a 2,000 year old Vampire. He also happens to be drop dead gorgeous, rich and is satisfied with his life. Then a woman is killed outside one of his Clubs, and he gets this enticing scent. Suddenly the Hunger hits, and he has no knowledge of what it is, he thinks he's going crazy. What more can go wrong?
Lavinia Rossi is a half-breed wolf and lives with her friend Carolina. Things are going well for both until Carolina is found murdered at the Club where they both work. Secrets have been kept and found out. Then there are the wolves that are evil and nasty hunting for Lavinia. She meets the charismatic Vampire Andrian and for some reason, is quite attracted to him. So much for Adrian's complaisant life.
I loved this exciting, edge of your seat, suspenseful storyline, with hot & sexy romance. Loved Adrian and Lavinia who is so sassy to the cosmopolitan Adrian. They are just perfect for each other. Highly recommend this book and the others in the series, they are all stand alone books!
When death, stalkers and break ins have Lavinia afraid to go home, she ends up with a ‘Directive’ bodyguard that invites her to a gala that will change her mind about vampires and life in general.
Adrian, a 200 year old billionaire vampire that has more control than any other of his kind, walks into one of his bars and the Hunger knocks him off his feet, literally. He goes to an old enemy to get answered and is told he will need to go to the gala and meet the librarian to get answers.
The gala is know for bring supernaturals together and Adrian is hoping he can get through it without draining anyone dry. But when he walks in and thirst changes to lust he’s not sure what to do.
When finding your bloodmates, can you keep her safe from those wanting to cause her harm and/or trying to kill her? Can your money and prestige truly get you far enough away from the danger?
Monica did a wonderful job this addition to the series and I’m looking forward to more!
