Okay, fans of the previous three books need to be warned: this one has quite a different feel. I don't think that it's necessarily bad, but it did surprise me and took away some of my enjoyment. The story is as simple as the ones in the other three books, and what really pulled me in (again) was the emotional issue of Victor finding a mate who is half-demon and struggling with not just his own but his family's deeply ingrained prejudice.

Victor is the oldest brother, not that you'd think so looki

Constant POV changes made this story confusing at times. This was not one of my favorite Marius Brother stories.

2.5 stars. I really didn't enjoy the change in writing style from third person in the first three stories of the series to first person in this story, so that has affected my rating because it affected my enjoyment of the story as a whole. This story seemed to almost have the feel of a number of diary entries.

Victor is strong, caring, and overwhelming at times. Nearly all of the writing focuses on him, along with how and what he is feeling, within the plot. Malachi is cute, but because of the fi
What should I say?? I like JF's books for what they are, namely light fluffy reads. Easy storyline, quick to read during a break or in doc's waiting room, not too much thinking required. Not too much plot, mostly repeating even, with the typical huge dominant male and smaller submissive partner, but this one was just ... a bit too much.

I really felt sorry for Victor when Malachi wasn't accepted by all family members because of his status as half demon, however Victor, you suppose to be the olde

I really liked this story but as others have pointed out it is very one-sided. I wanted to know more about Malachi because his story really touched me. I actually teared up with this book and I know I would have had a much bigger emotional attachment to it if I could have heard more of Malachi's voice.

Im speechless, this book so far is one of my favorites of all time.
This story broke my heart, in some parts i could not stop crying, it was more than i hoped to be. in some point i want to finish reading this serie, and even though it was amaizing and the books were fine, i was just trying to keep reading, and the i started to read this book and i could not stop reading, i was so sorprised about all this things that were happening.

Let me start by saying that I have already read the majority of the books in this series and was following it for a long time. I lost track of it and realized recently that I had about 4 new books in the Marius World Series to read. But it has been a long time since I read some of them, and I couldn't really remember much of the overarching plot. I also hadn't read much of the "Beyond the Marius Brothers" stories and never even added the ones I read onto Goodreads.

In the fourth installment of the Marius Brothers series, Ms. Flynn has definitely put together a dynamic due. She has paired a vampire warrior with his sworn enemy, a demon. This was a pairing that had me wanting to read Victor immediately.

Victor Marius is an eight hundred and ninety-five year old vampire without a mate. To say he’s extremely lonely is an understatement. Just when he thinks he won’t ever find his mate, he finds one smoldering on the side of the road. Victor is a little taken ba

Joyee Flynn always throws the reader a curve ball, but this time the curve ball is left for one of the characters. Victor is the embodiment of a big brother and throughout the series has stood by his brothers and their mates. In this story, I found I wanted to scream at Victor’s family because they are so callous and selfish. Despite the resentment, I found myself sympathetic to them all and thoroughly enjoyed the story of the eldest Marius brother. I am always excited to read a Joyee Flynn nove ...more
Ummmm, you know when you watch those really really bad B movies and you just know this shit is gonna be good... but then its really really not what you expected.... that was this one for me

its was a interesting twist to bring on the demon mate ... but then they go fix him and ... well not wanting to spoil it

I enjoy Ms Flynns book... but this one was just okay

typical joyee flynn serial romance. nothing fantastic, nothing so bad it can't be finished. what is typical joyee flynn? imagine a shorter harlequin romance but with no t&a (see, i was going to write no surprise pregnancies, but... yeah.).

A fun book. Victor is the oldest and like a lot of older brothers is very serious and protective. Malachi is a half demon vamp who has been a prisoner in a cave is whole life. The two meet and .... well that is the story. I love Victor is a big "alpha" male and Malachi isn't. Malachi is perfect for Victor to bring back the joy of life. The realism of the two meeting and trusting each other so quickly just didn't strike correctly but this is a story of vamps and "mates" so liberties are allowed. ...more

Victor and Malachi. I liked this :) I liked how Victor was with Malachi and watching Malachi live in the "real world". Since all he was a cave life, it was kind of refreshing to see someone who was old, but yet viewed the world through the eyes of a toddler. Everything was new to him.

Ahh wow where to friggin start???? While I have enjoyed Joyee Flynns other books, this one made me kinda cringe. It was like a bad B movie it was cheesy fake and overly dramatic. And while I don't mind a little of it in my books and characters, this was way over the top bad for me. I did not connect with the MCs at all. Wished I could have liked it and that it had been better than it actually was. 1.9 stars.

As always a great story of acceptance and over coming obstacles to find love and happiness, what more can I say really!! I love these brothers and will read every book so I know all of them end up happy. I am now looking forward to the rest of them!!

3.5 Delightful Divas. Victor is the last of Joyee Flynn’s Marius Brothers stories and I think partly why I enjoyed Victor’s story so much, or that it appealed to the romantic in me, was that he had been alone for so very long. To read this review in its entirety, please visit

The sex scenes, as always, were a revelation as Victor teaches Malachi and learns him, and those I enjoyed. No complaint in that arena as Ms. Flynn does sex well. And hot. To view the rest of this review, please visit

We learn a little more about the real personality of the tough guy Victor, and how in reality he isn't so tough. The book brought tears to my eyes in parts and made me laugh in others. A wonderful addition to the Marius Brothers' Series.
Others have mentioned some of the issues with the book and I agree. I just had to add --

"My big, dominant mate" as an endearment? Ohhhhhhhhkay. I didn't know if I should laugh or cringe.
I loved this was touching, sweet, and made me look at Victor in a new way...I can't wait to see what Joyee Flynn does with the next Marius brother.
