Blood & Fire by Mychael Black

This is a novella that mix paranormal with slutty behavior! Jason's character at first appears as a mourning hero, with some dark secret hidden inside, who lost his forever love Chris... this man probably will spend the rest of the book in a widow's weeds... only to end the first day in bed with Kevin, a friend's friend he meets that night. All right, the reader thinks, Kevin is Jason's hero, the man who will help him to forget his pain and face a new life happily ever after... also since they spend an entire night making monkey sex! But the morning after Jason is like, "well, it was nice, but I have to go", and Kevin is like, "good, I have to take a plane, it was good to meet you"... mmm the reader is perplexed.

The second night, Jason goes out with another friend, and this second friend introduce Jason to Tyler (side note: please can I have Jason's friends as mine? Also I'd like to have a private hunting reserve just lied out for me...). But the innocent reader thinks, Jason is a mourning hero, all right he slipped the night before, but now surely he will resist to temptation... and while the reader is thinking, Jason is heading on the back alley with Tyler, and not to smoke!

But the reader is not the only one who is looking Jason, there is also Julian. At this point the reader gives up, and his opinion of Jason is not exactly of one who holds on, so he is not exactly surprise when Julian, after finally have the chance to find Jason alone, and take him to bed, since moment one asks to Jason to be "only mine": yeah, Julian, better to play with open cards till the beginning since if you turn your shoulder, there is the risk that Jason goes home with another man!

All right, sorry if I was a bit silly, but this novella put me in a funny mood, even if probably it was not its purpose. There is also a dark side on it, all the mystery on who is Julian and why he is not affected by the strange gift of Jason to master the fire, even if, truth be told, Julian's character has not so much space to shine. All in all, probably Jason is only searching for the right man, and he adopts the technique to "taste" every possible candidate. Blood & Fire is a nice and enjoyable novella that flows smooth and good.

Thanks for the review, hun. :)

I'm glad Jason left you perplexed. That was the intention. I needed him to be the type to sleep and run, and only the lure he feels toward Julian offering the possibility of him settling down. :)

Sleep and run! I like that definition, it is exactly how I saw Jason ;-) Tonight I was in a silly mood and so also the review came out in that way, but you know yes that I read and post only on book I like. Elisa
