Publisher's Summary

As a Seminus demon, Raze's life literally depends on having sex with females. The problem is that he doesn't desire females, and it's physically impossible for him to be with males. Thankfully, he and his best friend, Fayle, have an arrangement that keeps him alive...if lonely. He finds some solace in his work as a medic at Thirst, a vampire club known for its rough clientele. But his carefully structured world turns upside down when he meets a mysterious male who makes him want what he can never have.
Slake is an assassin used to getting what he wants, and what he wants is Raze. But he also wants to earn back the soul he sold when he was a much different demon. All he has to do is capture a runaway succubus named Fayle and hand her over to her family. What he doesn't count on is being caught himself by a web of lies - and his attraction to Raze.
Raze and Slake must navigate a dangerous world to be together. But as Fayle's jealousy of their relationship turns deadly, they find themselves embroiled in a battle not only for their love, but their lives and souls.

What about Dorian Bane’s performance did you like?

OMG! Dorian Bane’s voice was sooo HOT. It was perfect for this story, all low and growly when it needed to be. Yum. I have liked his voice in other narrations but he NAILED this one.


Any additional comments?

I did not realize this was part of a series until after I read it, so this one can totally be read as a stand alone. However, now that I know this is part of a series, I am most definitely going back and reading from the beginning to see if it enhances my enjoyment of this story. I also and going to read it because i just really need more of this world.

That being said OMG Raze and Slake were HOT. This world was dark, dangerous, and HOT. My favorite part of this audiobook was learning about Underworld, and Seminus Demons, and the pseudo transgender quality of Slake’s species. I want to know more about the various demonic species, the underworld structure, and the way the various demons interact. It was so dark and evil and yet not. I have got to read more.

I also hope to see more from these men and more about Slake’s new job. I hope their story is not just a one off never to be seen again. The way these men were together and how they ended up being perfect for each other was well done. However, I DO wish more time would have been devoted to the relationship development. This story was only a novella and I think it was a disservice to the reader that the relationship was almost an afterthought. Yes, there was sex, but where was the connection? The understanding the reader needed to know why things went from biological need to longing and love? I would not remove anything in this novella at all, but I would have loved more out of this relationship.

However, even with that niggle of annoyance, I enjoyed the hell out of this novella. It pulled me into this world and I am hooked.

narration sucked and ruined this installment

fingernails on a chalkboard. where did you find this horrible narrator. he would ruin a nursery rhyme. he made this book nearly impossible to tolerate. a five freaking hour book should not take 3 weeks to get thru. ya know audio junkies tend to like the same narrator ( if is a decent one) to continue the series. I HATE narrator changes. this one was the worst I ever heard
the book was the obligatory m/m romance that everyone feels liked they should do, so ok. it was just short and to the point. I c where it could have been "stretched" but truly no need. it was pretty good.
I anxiously await the next installment of the series. I highly doubt I could listen to this one again just because the narrator was that bad. gaah! !!
