HELLO FRIENDS, I AM SO EXCITED TO BRING YOU 'A BITTER TASTE OF SWEET OBLIVION' THE SECOND BOXED SET IN THE CHANNELING MORPHEUS SERIES BY JORDAN CASTILLO PRICE! I AM SO EXCITED; I WILL REVIEW EACH OF THE 5 NOVELETTE'S THAT MAKE UP THE BOXED SET SEPARATELY, BUT I WILL LEAVE AN OVERALL RATING AT THE END! I WILL ALSO INCLUDE A TEASER AND AUTHOR BIO AND LINKS! LET'S GET STARTED:
Staking a vampire isn't so easy now that Michael's got a vampire of his very own. Although killing them is no longer an option, he's as determined as ever to stop the spread of vampirism.
Wild Bill is a lover, not a fighter--so he's tickled when Michael's new agenda, to dispense condoms and sterile phlebotomy gear among vampires, replaces the old "heads will roll" approach.
It takes courage to track down vamps in their own territory and deliver a lecture on safe sex, and more importantly, safe bloodletting. Michael's never been short on audacity...but he's finding that he and Wild Bill aren't the only ones with agendas.
THIS QUOTE IS SIMPLE BUT PERFECT FOR THESE MEN! HERE ARE MY REVIEWS:
It's a sultry July night, and Wild Bill is content. It's deliciously warm outside, the fireworks are about to start, a whole pint of freshly-tapped blood is on the menu, and his boyfriend hasn't murdered anyone in months.
Too bad Bill's contentment isn't shared by Michael, who's grown tired of his own lack of experience. He hints that a new lover in their bed might broaden his horizons. Their first encounter might have been a threesome, but it certainly didn't end well for the third participant.
Even now, Bill can't seem to shake the memory of the hickory stake protruding from the chest of his old nemesis. Lust wars with guilt as Wild Bill tries to figure out how to bury his past, once and for all.
I just love this series, every book is a study in how to engage a reader! you get drawn in from the first word to the last, and HOT whew are they hot! In this one we get a hot encounter, and maybe a revelation!
With summer ending and temperatures dipping low at night, Michael is eager to get his leather jacket back, and although Wild Bill could easily vamp any sales clerk into giving Michael some new duds, it wouldn't be quite the same as the jacket he left at his parents' house. Not unless the malls have begun selling clothing with rohypnol and ketamine sewn into the seams.
The return of the jacket comes with a price: a new cell phone from Michael's parents. Surprisingly, Wild Bill encourages Michael to keep the phone. After all, Michael wouldn't want to be the only twenty-one-year-old in the world without one. Seems innocent enough... right?
But you never know where an innocent gift will lead. Michael worries the phone may be some shiny bait, meant to lure him closer to his family, and then, college. Everyone seems so intent on getting Michael to enroll, but he's busy looking to catch a vampire.
In this one Michael gets a call from someone Bill would rather forget existed! To say him and this person don't get along is putting it mildly! I love the way these books keep you guessing what will happen, but when you guess, you are always wrong! This one is an 'edge of your seater' for sure! 5 Stars
It's been a couple of decades since Wild Bill has been able to savor the bite of an ice-cold, freshly tapped keg. Twenty-odd years since the shivery pucker of a cheap, boxed wine has assaulted his palate. But that doesn't mean Bill's forgotten how to party.
Wild Bill and Michael have holed up in a week-to-week hotel in an iffy Milwaukee neighborhood, and even though it's been a year or two, the fringe art happenings are just as edgy as Bill remembers.
There's a girl covered in frosting in the middle of the hors d'ouvres table, and she's begging them to dip. And the host of the party wants to lure them into the range of his mechanical eye. It's all fun and games, until a tryst turns deadly.
Holy freaking hotness batman, the hot hot interludes never ever get boring in this series, and the way the characters, even if they are only in the books for a few chapters, pop off the page in technicolor! In this one we meet someone who is both intriguing and scary, and that is awesome, you never know what side anyone will be on in this series, you have to wait and see! Oh and there is totally a huge holy crap moment in this one! 5 stars
