Inez Urso is beginning to have her doubts. Her business associate Thomas Argeneau has some interesting traits, like an allergic reaction to the sun, excellent night vision, and not much of an appetite for food. And to top it all off, he just tried to bite her neck... but maybe that was a sign of passion. If so, she'd be happy to experience more, despite her determination n ...more

Thomas deserved someone better than "stick in the mud" Inez. I thought this book was ok, but a lazy effort. The author took very little time to explore who Inez and Thomas were. The big reveal about what he "really" did fizzled out with little interest. He never even discussed it with Inez. I did not feel that they were in a good place going forward. Not having worked out any logistics. I thought his family totally did them wrong and he let it go way too easily.

The author has lost the romance in

This is another instalment in the Argeneau vampire series with Thomas Argeneau as our hero this time. He's one of the younger immortals (at 200 years old) and when his aunt Marguerite goes missing Thomas is the only one in the family able to go to London and find her. Meeting him at the airport is Inez a corporate type from the family's U.K Company. She's been teame

My local library is running a class aimed at teaching kids they cannot pick a book by its cover—but isn’t that what we all do? I found some dozen paperbacks added to the bookcase in the upstairs hall at the beach house, and this was one of four that I elected to take to read, but I almost skipped this one, as its cover shows a lurid picture of two nearly naked people huddled in a hug, with the male having a tattoo showing a bat superimposed over the moon, while the lady in his arms, wearing a sl ...more

I guess this is the point where some things started going downhill?
It's amazing how your perspective can change when re-reading a whole series.
I kind of loved this one when I finished it 1st time. I kind of love it now as well. But I can see the flaws as well and they are bugging me.

What I don't understand is that why the author keeps changing tactics. (view spoiler)

Vampires Are Forever is the 8th book in the Argeneau series by the very talented Lynsay Sands. I've been reading this series for a while. When I need a good light vampire romance book to read, I look for Sands!
If your familiar with this series, then you know you don't exactly have to read it in order. They all star a different couple, that is based around the Argeneau family. I always was a fan of Thomas Argeneau from the first joke he cracked. He is the "younger" of the Argeneau family, and isn

So I grabbed this book from a grocery store because I judged a book by its cover and didn't realize it was a whole series. LOVED IT THE BEST OF THE SERIES! It gives a fabulous and realistic backstory to the origin of THESE vampires and how the work internally. The love story was sweet too. I read the whole series after this book. I discovered that you don't have to read any of them in any real order and THIS book gives the BEST and most detailed story of where the vampires come from, etc. If you ...more

If you are looking for some light, fun reading, then this is the book for you. However, space the books in this series out because reading them right after each other can become tedious.

I enjoy the characters in these series so much, but the storylines are just so weak. The dialog between Thomas and Inez is witty and entertaining, so why can't their story be the same? The author was trying to weave a "mystery" into what are basically light-hearted vampire romances. Stick to the romance because t

For my reaction to this series, see my review of A Quick Bite. Although not the same, it's similar enough, or causes a similar enough reaction in me for one to serve for both. That's not to say these two novels are exactly formulaic; I think that anyone who reads the one will enjoy the other without ever having the here-we-go-again feeling rearing its ugly head.

In fact, I liked it and it's series mate enough that I may well go in search of the remainder of the series—very unusual for me and roma

The next book in Lynsay Sands "Vampire" Argeneau Series (Book 8). This is a very good book! It only has 3 stars as compared with the last one she wrote (which was VERY funny). This book is very funny at the beginning, but as the story treks on, not so much. Most of Ms. Sands "vampire" books do not have much plot, and this is one of them. However, like all of her books this is a fun and fast read. This book's hero is Thomas, cousin of Marguerite’s children. It is nice to finally read his story, a ...more

I did enjoy this book as much as any in the series, but there were a few criticisms of areas that I thought could have been stronger. While the hero and heroine actually do a better job than other couples getting from like and lust to love, I felt there should have been more of a physical draw (a common issue with Sands' writing), even with the constant interruptions of the search for Maurgerite. I've begun noticing that Sands has an odd habit of introducing potential sources of conflict and the ...more

3.5 Stars, rounded up to 4 because my issues were mostly a matter of personal taste.

Read as part of the Gotta Have Paranormal Romance With a Kick Group Hunk Alert Challenge

This was a light and fluffy vampire romance. The book was well-written and the characters relatable. It was an easy read, and even a picky writer such as myself didn't spot any technical issues. The basis of this challenge was to read about someone else's BBF (Book Boyfriend), and I understand why Thomas would qualify. He's

Where did my fun, carefree Thomas go?

Description:

Inez Urso notices that her new business associate, Thomas Argeneau, has some interesting traits: an allergy to sunlight, excellent night vision, and not much of an appetite for food. To top it off, he has just tried to bite her neck. A sign of passion? Inez is determined not to mix business with pleasure

My Thoughts:

Ok, I liked the book, I liked the action in the book. However there were a few things that kinda disappointed me. Firstly, this Thomas

Argeneau isn't my favorite series, but I've only read two books so far. #1/#8 <--- very out of character for me, I know. Three words: Year End Challenges. But, I did enjoy this one better than the first. Maybe b/c I read it vs. listened to the audiobook [didn't like the narrator]. Either way, it was about 3.5 stars for me, but I rounded up to 4.

Vampires Are Forever is the HEA of Thomas and Inez. Thomas is one of the Argeneau babes, just over 200 years old. He's sent to Europe to find Aunt Mar

Maybe it's because I jumped in to the series at book 8 (for a group challenge read), but this just fell utterly flat for me. The dialogue was stilted and varied between formal and silly slang. The mystery that had everyone on edge wasn't really a mystery at all and was just brushed aside by the end of the book. The vampires seemed somewhat weak with no blood-lust or savagery too them that so often lends to their 'danger appeal.' Inez was kind of a dud as were most of the other women in this stor ...more
The Flooze
Probably my least favorite so far. I loved Thomas' character in the preceding books, and thought the search for Marguerite would be intriguing. To my dismay, nothing much happens in this book--apart from Thomas' lifemate constantly berating herself.

Inez' insecurity was tiring. There are countless moments throughout the book when, despite Thomas' obvious interest, Inez harps on her inadequacies. Even mid-makeout session, she's so busy wishing she were a leggy blonde, she tunes out Thomas' roving

Well this wasn't the best of the series. I was a little disappointed with Thomas' book. I had enjoyed him as a minor character in the series most of the way because of his personality. However in this book which is supposed to be his main book, he's almost a filler. The main mystery is about how his aunt has disappeared. I love that it brings all the other couples back from the series but this is Thomas' book. I didn't feel the connection between him and Inez. I felt the ending was extremely rus ...more

I loved this book as well. It has some twists to it that keep you on edge, and rooting for things to go a certain way. It makes you feel like you are living in there with them. I felt my heart start to beat faster with each of theirs as if we were one person. I really enjoyed the battles and the romance equally. I am not one big on battle, but when they are put in these texts I would love to be wrapped up in them. I could feel each touch, hear each sound, and thought each thought as if they were ...more

Okay - this nails it for me. I just can't get into Ms. Sands books. To be fair I have only read a novella and this book(which I am reading for a challenge). So I have not read them all in order but for me this story was just boring. I couldn't find myself caring about any of it and for me the chemistry between the two main characters was non-existent. Don't get me wrong, Thomas seemed very sweet and Inez wasn't an unlikable character but the whole thing was just pretty blah for me. I know a lot ...more

I loved Thomas in the previous books and thought he was incredible in this one. So sweet and caring and sexy.... I liked Inez's character. For someone who has little or no self confidence herself. I can at least say that in my opinion I could relate to her. In fact we have a lot of things in common. Loved Amsterdam!! Of to find Marguerite next :)
Samantha (Book Lover's Cozy Cafe)
still loving this series I love how it's light hearted, funny and romanticce. this one though wasn't my favorite but I still enjjoyed it. However I loved how they still hadn't found Maugerite therefore leaving it open for more books. HOORAHH for that.

2,5 Sterne!

War für mich bis jetzt das schlechteste Buch der Reihe. Keine Spannung drin, die Storyline war so lala und insgesamt war alles ein bisschen fad. Schade...

This book was hard for me to rate. Vampire are Forever is book eight in the Argeneau Vampires series and features Thomas, cousin to the original set of Argeneau's we started with, and his life-mate, Inez. Thomas was always one of my favorite characters, and still is, but his book almost seemed like a filler book with no substance.

Summary:
Thomas Argeneauis worried. Neither he or the rest of his family have heard from his Aunt Marguerite for three days, and that is unusual for her. After Thomas' o

I am definitely in the minority with this book. I felt it was lack luster until i was 85% into the book when activity started to happen. It's kind of a "who done it" mystery with Inez taking the lead female role but it really lacked a story, at the end of the book it's still left off with where's Margaret and why is she missing.

I gave this book four stars because it was suspenseful and the characters are interesting. I enjoyed this book especially for the characters, but this book does not really stand on its own. I recommend
