Oh my! I never thought I'd say this, but I loved, loved, loved Quinn! What a tasty treat for lovers of vampire romance and another example of why I love A.K. Michaels! In Quinn, the ninth release of A Vampire's Thirst Collection, Michaels once again pulls out all the stops with another fabulous addition to the collection. Quinn literally explodes with perilous danger, heartbreaking drama, heart-stopping action, agonizing angst, steamy passion, and dreamy romance from beginning to end! Once I started reading, I couldn't stop! I was completely mesmerized from the first page till the last and loved every single minute! Can you tell I really enjoyed this book? lol... Now, let me tell you why!
Quinn is a riveting, highly imaginative, well-crafted, fast-paced, easy-to-follow full-length standalone paranormal tale filled with danger, drama, action, suspense, and romance. The narrative is beautifully written in the third person with the primary perspective from ancient vampire Quinn Alexander but in typical Michaels fashion, we also get a secondary point of view from the female protagonist, tiger-shifter Amaya. The dialogue is smart, snappy, well-executed, and flows effortlessly. There's just so much I love about Michael's writing but my favorite component, by far, is the large cast of engaging characters. They literally explode from the pages, grab your imagination, capture your heart, and hold you prisoner from the first chapter till the last! In this latest release to the collection, Michaels gives her readers a pulse-pounding adventure featuring wealthy Scottish businessman and ancient vampire Quinn Alexander and his Bloodmate Amaya, a tiger-shifter and kindhearted thief who steals from unsavory criminals and gives to the poor and downtrodden. Quinn is handsome, courageous, fierce, imposing, and filthy rich. He's cool, calm, and always controlled, often to the extreme and very much a control freak, similar to humans diagnosed with OCD, which has actually served him well in the past with his business dealings. But for the first time in his life, Quinn's lost his steely control and finds himself completely at the mercy of a thirst, unlike anything he's ever experienced in his very long life. Yet, no matter the cost, Quinn's determined to decimate anyone or anything endangering his newly found Bloodmate, including The Directive, the organization responsible for policing all supernaturals. Quinn is an ancient vampire, a daywalker, and truly a force to be reckoned with, especially now that he's found his Bloodmate and focused solely on claiming and protecting her, regardless of the consequences. I'll admit, I didn't like Quinn when he was first introduced in Flint's book. He appeared cold, hard, unfeeling, uptight, completely heartless, very much a control freak, and a total a$$hole with no redeeming qualities, only interested in material possessions and making money, but it only took the right woman to bring him to his knees, and that woman was Amaya. *sigh* I knew it would take one very special woman to capture his cold, dead heart, and Amaya was perfect. Amaya is a beautiful, brave, selfless, caring, kindhearted tiger shifter who became an orphan as a small child, forced to live with a cruel uncle, and ran away to live on the streets at fifteen. She's spent her life surviving the only way she knew how, stealing, but attempts to balance the scales by taking only from criminals and giving the majority of her ill-gotten gains to the poor and downtrodden. Poor Quinn, he's so clueless. He has no idea what's happening to him until Jana Noskova, The Directive's second in command, shows up unexpectedly and corners him at a club in Hong Kong during an extravagant party for the release of his most recent business venture, a game app called Scales of Sin. I saw a different side to Quinn in this story and felt so bad for the big guy. Had it not been for his longtime friend and personal bodyguard Thorne and Jana Noskova of The Directive, Quinn would probably have wound up in a Directive cell or worse -dead, which brings me to one of the other things I enjoy most about Michaels' writing - the way she integrates familiar characters from other books into the current storyline. It makes the story so much more personal for the reader and in Quinn, we see several others from the cast in Michaels' first two books, including Directive second in command Jana Noskova, Henry the witch, and Mac, the werewolf from Scotland who helped Flint defend his Bloodmate. Plus we also get to meet a few new players that I hope we'll be hearing more about including Ace, Quinn's head of security, and a tough as nails ancient female vampire from Italy, Delia Constanzo, who also works for The Directive. I've always been fascinated by kick-butt female characters and so hope Delia and Jana get their own books!
Did I like this book? Yes, I loved it! Would I recommend it? You bet, and I am but only for adult readers since it does contain explicit language, sex, and graphic violence. Quinn is one scary dude who is accustomed to always getting his way, but he still made my little old heart go pitty-pat! But FYI, I hope you don't have a weak stomach because Quinn is determined to exact his revenge on the men who harmed his Bloodmate and believe me, it isn't pretty. Quinn is a fierce, bloodthirsty opponent who, as it turns out, actually does have a softer side. lol... But only for Amaya. This full-length novel is the ninth release of the collection but the third contribution by Michaels and, like all the other books of the collection, can be read as standalone. Was it perfect? No, but it was perfect for me! There were a few little boo-boos, but nothing that distracted from the story. Wil I read this author again? Of course! And finally, was I entertained? Completely! I was glued to my seat, white-knuckling my ereader, screaming at the top of my lungs, and shaking my fists in anger with my heart fluttering wildly in my chest as the pages flew as quickly as the time- and loved every single minute! Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read!
Before he leaves for his trip he takes ill, knowing this is wrong and vampires don’t get sick, he starts to worry about this crazy hunger and what it will be like when he gets to Hong Kong and how safe all the humans will be around him with this insatiable hunger.
But when he arrives in Hong Kong, low and behold our favorite Directive member Janna appears, needing his help. Someone is kidnapping Blood mates and Janna needs his help as she feels the one being taking now is his.
Quinn believes that he does not have a blood mate and he just wants to get his stuff done in Hong Kong and go home but when the thirst kicks in again he now feels that maybe she’s right and he needs to save his blood meet before it’s too late.
Being blackmailed by the Russian mafia is not a good thing and Quinn will not stand by and let it happen. There will be death and destruction rather The Directive likes it or not.
Can Quinn save his blood mate?
Can his blood mate accept him for who and what he is?
Definitely a wonderful addition and a must read.

OMG - this story definitely had some new twists to the basic formula of a vampire's thirst story. I loved those differences and how they changed the story and the way it was developing. I loved the characters is the story and the way they interacted (or not). Very dramatic and full of a few unexpected twists and turns this is definitely a must for any fan of the previous stories as well as anyone who is tempted to give them a try. Clearly written and easy to understand it was very well written and very enjoyable.
We start with Quinn, he hates crowds, rarely leaving his isolated home in Scotland, heading to Japan to the one thing he hated, a presentation in front of hundreds. He shuddered, but needs must. He never expected to find his mate here. The Thirst hit him before he left his beloved home, he would never cope, the hunger to feed, to slake this thirst overwhelmed him. His mate in danger, he would rip apart anyone who hurt her. Never knowing the danger ever present to them both. The book is so good, you feel their love, their pain, it flows out of every page. Recommend this book as a part of The Vampire Thirst series, but can be read as a standalone. Excellent series, highly recommend Quinn if you like Vampires, love, romance, danger. A*************
I love the descriptive way the scenes are written allowing you to build the picture in your mind and feel the emotions of the characters.
Quinn’s losses of control are breath holding moments, Thank goodness for Thorne.
The storyline was intense, exciting and had an unexpected twist! And we get to meet the new team set up by the directive to deal with the bloodmates phenomenon, Mac and Delia seem to have an interesting connection, I sense a back story there ?
The styles of the different authors seem to fit really well together to create a talented group who with each and every book bring a new and exciting element to the series.
If you love a quick paced PNR then Quinn is a book for you.
Quinn is away in Hong Kong when the hunger strikes. He hasn’t got a clue what’s wrong. Even after witnessing Flint’s dilemma..
Then Jana arrives with news his mate is in danger. Everything seems to click into place. He will stop at nothing to find her. Nobody will get in his way...
Packed with action and suspense, this book had me glued to my kindle. Can’t wait for the next instalment..
