When Regina’s friends insist on setting her up a “Fantasy Fix” to help her get over her cheating ex, she dreams up some kinky out-of-this-world encounters that they could never possibly bring to life. But the next thing Regina knows, her friends have got her laced into a shiny black corset, tight leather pants, and a sexy pair of stilettos. It’s time for some downtown vampire-fantasy fun. . . .
The Vampire Ball in Manhattan’s East Village isn’t really Dmitri Vidâme’s idea of a good time, but as a member of the Council that governs the Others, he has to keep an eye on all the young vamps who prey on the pretenders. After he feasts his dark eyes on fiery Regina at the bar, he knows that he must have her. But for the first time Dmitri meets a woman who is more than a match for his indomitable will. And he may be the fantasy Regina hoped for… until she—and her feisty friends—discover her sexy new lover’s bloodsucking secret
One Bite With A Stranger by Christine Warren
4 out of 5
If you want to read a rich book full of hot-chocolate-&-whipped-cream moments, this is the book for you! And just know that unlike a lot of the paranormal romance (para-smut as I like to call it), this one just jumped right in... Like I mean by like page 50, the hot moments began and didn't end.
Regina (aka Reggie) is an interesting character. She seems like a generic, normal woman. But she has secret desires that she would like to be fulfilled... Which, what woman doesn't? But unlike other women, she gets her chance with Dmitri.
Dmitri is a delightfully medieval-turned-modern man/vampire. He seemed wonderfully delicious, wonderfully alpha, and absolutely unrealistic. Doesn't mean I don't like him.
So, there really wasn't a mystery, twist or anything like that. This story was really about the chemistry and lust between Reggie & Dmitri. But that is ok... If you are looking for a steamy, no-brainer, this book for you!
So, personally, I found Reggie's friends hilarious! I was rolling on the floor with their antics and the idea of the fantasy fix was hilarious... But I'm glad that I don't have friends like that.
Overall, this is a good book. And I recommend it for anyone who is looking for a fun, no-brainer, summer beach read.
