This was a well-done shorter type read. I really liked both of the characters. Love scenes were awesome in a passionate sense and not over the top erotica. Alex was romantic, possessive, and protective...and very yummy(; Bree was a great female lead...she didn't do the whole "doubting the hero" thing. She didn't believe that Alex had betrayed her. That is so refreshing. Enjoyed this more than Carnal Thirst #1.

Lots of sexytimes, two MCs who are hiding secrets of their own and a assassination plot that changed their lives. Alex Night is a hunky vamp, a tough agent posing as a smuggler/criminal and a romantic. He falls deeply in love with Bree Michaels, a human, politician and a woman who happens to love romance stories. She hired him to transport her to her home planet but of course lots of things happen during their travel there.

Bree's character as a vamp-rights politician is as convincing as Denise R

Just couldn't like this one. I finished, but sometimes it felt like I read it, but what did I read?

I am not really into vampire erotica but I did like this one. I also thought it was better than the first part. You could get away with reading this first as it is a completely different story.

very well written characters for such a short story

This is book #2 of Carnal Thirst and it is better than the first one. Alexei on a special mission to keep Council Rep. Briana Michaels out of harms way. Soon as the meet someone tries to kill her but she is no dummy, she fights back but is stopped by Alexei from getting injured. She has sex bot that Alexei hates and shuts down every chance he gets. This was more funny than it was serious and the sex was hot!!!! No it didn't involve the sex bot (get your minds out of the collective gutter ...more

Special agents and politicians, sci fi and paranormal. This book was going for sexy and mysterious and although I think it got there, there was a little something missing that I can’t put my finger on.

Special Task Force Alexei Night is assigned the task of getting information out of Interstellar Councilwoman Briana Michaels. She’s human and has always expressed her views of vampire rights. But now there’s pressure to make her change things to protect her

I'm really not sure what to think of this book other than I could of been wasting my time doing something other than read it. Okay maybe I'm being mean, but I'd like to think the story would draw me in and this one didn't. The android for a personal secretary....ugh.... I read this book before book one, so maybe I needed to read book one. I love most of Mrs Day's books but this one must of been an earlier one because I don't see her usual style.

Totally 5 Stars

The author knows how to spin an exciting, interesting plot with awesome characters and steamy love scenes. This is a must buy book because once you start reading it; you won't be able to put it down because it's just that awesome? Love reading about vampires so keep them coming.

I really enjoyed this book even though I didn't read the first book. I was really craving some more Sylvia Day after reading, Bared to you, which was amazing! and so this book will not disappoint. It's very sexy, the protagonists deliver some intense scenes. It is very fast pace so have your next book line up as you will finish this one extremely fast!
So what's an immortal vampire and young human woman to do when her life is threatened. Have passionate sex with her would-be rescuer, of course;) Hot scenes, testosterone filled vamps, betrayal and a HEA. Not bad.

my thoughts

I loved this story. It showed so much emotion between the two people. So beautiful, I literally almost cried when I read the really bad part. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to read an action packed romance novel. Mrs. Day is a fantastic writer.

I've read very few PNR, haven't decided if I'm a fan, but I'm a big Sylvia Day fan, that's for sure. It's a short story with a lot of steam and things happening really fast. But since I'm a fan, I enjoyed it regardless.

I liked this one better than the first one, but still not enough to give it 3 stars. I don't really know what to write about it, except that the story is just not that interesting and the love scenes don't make up for it.

It was ok. Not as good as the first vampire book in this series. But well put together in such a short story.

Less sex than the previous book and more of a plot, but because it's so short it isn't as fleshed out as it could've been.

The first book I have read about vampires in space. Great bit of escapism with sex thrown into the mix. Made me smile - not a strong plot but who cares the book was fun.
Louise Bailey
Vampire s hott sex and trouble in space sums up both stories. Took me so long to read cuz I couldn't lose myself in it. Was a good read nice twist on last story.
