Were Blood

Book 3 in the Were Legends series.

The story was intriguing and revolved around a vampire who falls in love with a were who's been captured as a blood slave. The society the author built around the vamps and the weres, including a twist on how vamps react to sunlight, was well thought of. The sex scenes were descriptive and varied for those who enjoy full on erotica.

Now here's the issues I had. For one thing the writing in general versus that of the sex scenes, especially the dialogue seemed vastly different. The story for the most part followed a bit of a medieval style of manners, but when the clothes came off, the dialogue was straight out of modern day. Personally, I found it jarring.

My second problem was the quick, pat ending. There was no real build up or climax before the ending, it just kind of finished with a quick an all-is-well-in-the-world spin. Not only did I not get my anxious page turning excitement to see how things would turn out in the end, I didn't get my warm HEA glow. More time spent fleshing out this last section and perhaps adding some resolution to some of the ongoing conflicts would have been appreciated.

In conclusion, if you want a were who reluctantly falls for a vamp with hot sex scenes this is perfect, but personally, I thought the story could have done better.
