Spoilers ahead...hard to avoid them, this being book 8 in the series :D

**4.5 Stars for Thomas's Choice**

"I loved you from the moment I first saw you."


I have long awaited Thomas's story, from book one in the Scanguards Vampires series. From the moment Thomas's heart was broken, and from the moment he met Eddie and became his mentor.

Thomas is a loving, kind and smexy vampire, that has a passion for restoring antique motorbikes. One of Scanguards vampires, he takes on the role of Eddie's mentor
Book eight in the Scanguards Vampires series features everyone's favorite IT genius & Master of Mind Control - Thomas, whose story has been progressing since the first book in the series, Samson's Lovely Mortal

One of the (Many) strengths of this series, is that we have a core collection of main characters, and their development progresses throughout all of the books, so we never lose touch with any of our favorite players.

I am a major fan of the Scanguards Vampires series, and of the Autho

Tina darling, you have missed your calling! Are you sure this is your first M/M? 'Cause let me tell ya, I have been reading nothing but M/M for a while now and this ranks right up there with some of the best! The passion was burning up my screen. The sex scenes? Nailed it. And the plot was fantastic! It was a bit darker than I'm used to from you, especially that one scene (you know which one). Will you write more M/M books in the future? Pretty please? For me???

I don't wanna know how these books get such high ratings.

"'I'm nobody's errant boy.'"

"He'd been handsome once, very handsome. But the scar that marred one side of his face had put an end to that."

"...pushing against the tight ring of muscles that guarded his dark portal."

"He noticed that as so often Eddie hadn't put his helmet on."

"When he reached the tight ring of muscle that guarded the dark portal, Eddie rubbed over it with his lube-covered fingers, circling it like a tiger its prey."

Be-Still My Heart,this was sooooo romantic!

Beware this love story starts off sliw......

Two Vampires, in San Francisco, near my home town* swoon*

But, I loved it!

I have NEVER jumped in the the middle of a series, let alone book 8, I'm to OCD for that~

But I did, cuz someone wrote they "believe it can be a stand-alone"


They were right


It takes a while to get the romance on target, maybe about 80% of the book. but there is a lot of tensi

I gobbled this book up in 5 short hours and i loved every single page, Tina Folsom does not disappoint!

This is the 8th book in the Scanguards series and there is no sign of the series getting stale whats so ever, Tina Folsom is still keeping you gripped from the very first word.

The story rushes past at such a fast pace you dont notice you have been sat still for almost 5 hours!
This is one of the best male on male books i have ever read, it ranks up there with J R Ward’s Lover at last in the Blac

I’ve waited for Thomas and Eddie’s story for a while. I loved it. It was sexy as hell, and had a great story to go along with all the sexiness.

I loved reading Eddie struggle with his sexuality. It has to be difficult to admit that you’re gay when so many people judge and shun you when you do. I think society is way more accepting now than they ever have been, but it’s still hard. I laughed when Eddie thought something when wrong with his transformation into a vampire and that’s what made him gay

This was everything I had hoped for, and more.
I seriously cannot believe that this was Tina Folsom's first ever M/M novel. That in itself makes this book outstanding. You have definitely found a new niche here.

I felt so bad for poor Eddie in the beginning of this book, realising that he just wasn’t into sex with women anymore. He didn’t understand what was happening. What was wrong with him? He’s also panicking when he discovered that Thomas is sexually attracted to him. It was so hard for him

I really liked the sex scenes and the GFY angst. I found the writing style simplistic, making everything else seem mundane. 'Eddie put his helmet on the table.' Entering a building took up several pages of opening doors, turning corners. But anytime the two MCs were together, it was interesting and hot.

Well I loved Thomas's Choice by Tina Folsom a must read for vampire fans and m/m alike but if you like both genres you'll be in heaven.

Thomas the IT specialist is openly gay, his a great character warm, interesting and a bit kinky too it seems :) and did I mention He rides a motorcycle - damn hot!

Eddie needed retraining and went to live with Thomas for this reason, unknown to Eddie, Thomas has the hots for him but a Eddies straight isn't he??

I have had the honor of reading all 8 books of the Scanguards Series by Tina Folsom. And with each book she has not disappointed me. Thomas's Choice is a must read.

If I didn't have to work today I would have finished the book yesterday when it was released. SO I got to finish it today. I must admit I have read scenes in other books with men who are gay and I have seen them on TV but I never got hot with any of those scenes. Thomas's Choice was the first book that made me exited with anticipation

For all of those Scanguard Vampire fans, this is the long awaited book 8 which is Thomas' story. Tina wrote on Facebook before starting this book that she waited a long time to write it because Thomas is gay and she was worried about how it would be perceived since it would strictly be a M/M book. True Scanguards fans only wanted for Thomas to finally be happy and find true love like all of his friends have. If you do not like reading M/M action then do not buy this book because there is A LOT o ...more

My Rating:
VERY GOOD: The characteristics of a 4 star book include: a great story; I loved the characters; and there was an interesting plot and unique story elements; there may have been a few odd things kept the story from being amazing. I would read it again and I would recommend it to a friend.
My Thoughts:
For those of us who follow the Scanguards series, we have been eagerly awaiting Thomas' story. And major props to Miss Tina because she did not disappoint us with this story. From the minut
Tina, you're a magnificent writer! I heard this book made it #1 in Gay Romance! You go Girl! You deserved it for such a wonderful book!
Okay, so my review. First, I have to say this book was really really reaaally good. While Zane and Portia will always be MY favorite couple, Eddie and Thomas now hold a special spot in my heart. I wasn't sure who I loved more! Eddie, so innocent and confused about his feelings for Thomas or Thomas, so dominant and sure of his feelings for Eddie. They both make a

Okay, I've been following this series since I downloaded "Samson's Lovely Mortal" and took a liking to these vampires. Thomas was an all time favourite character with his motorcycles and leather jacket and IT savvy brain. I'm glad he finally got his happily ever after.

From the previous novels, it was clear that Thomas's affections were one sided, with Eddie not having any hint of i

Wow! 5 stars without a doubt! Loved watching Eddie come to terms to who he was, and what Thomas meant to him. Thomas is one of my favourite Scanguards, he has been an interesting character with a past before now we have only had a glimpse into. Eddie of course has been there in the background but we never have really had a good chance to meet him properly before now.

The author has held nothing back with these boys. The relationship, the sex is as sexy and as hot as any of the m/f couplings in t
ThatEzi  (Oh My Shelves)
Not quite 4 stars. More like 3.5.
I was a little disappointed in this one. Eddie was kind of rude when he found out about Thomas' feelings. His shift from heterosexual to bicurious was too fast. It wasn't smooth. I thought Thomas deserved someone who thought he was the cat's meow.
However, I do like the emergence of an anti Scanguard group. It makes for a vampire civil war, so I like that new direction

First M/M romance read for me. All I can say is I found this book quiet surprisingly hot. Book 8 Thomas and Eddie's story. Continues the world of Scandguard series.

Gripping , intense, a lot of twists and the right dose of romance in there. All in all a great read.
Finding out Thomas, Eddie's mentor, has a sexual interest in him totally floors Eddie. He doesn't swing that way. Yet there's something about Thomas and his sculpted body and well endowed assets that can't be ignored despite his best efforts.

Thomas agreed to mentor the new vampire and employee of Scanguards but it's becoming more and more difficult to hide his feelings. Thomas knows Eddie isn't gay and that there's no hope his fantasies will be anything other than fantasies. Yet, while out on pa

SQUEEE!!! I waited for this one and was not disappointed!!

I've read all of the Scanguard books but this one is one takes the cake. We met Eddie early on in the series and knew Thomas carried a torch, unfortunately Eddie is straight. And we also know that Thomas was almost killed by Milo (EVIL EX) so he is pretty damaged.

In this book Eddie realized he is attracted to Thomas after a situation in an alley leaves them making out... ok maybe a little more than making out teehehe SQUEEEEEEE!

Read the 6 chapter teaser and this book sucks you in. October feels too far away. Must have more!

Im in love! Its all Ive got to say. These are one of my favorite characters of the series.
Eddie's feelings have changed toward Thomas, ending Thomas's suffering in silence and his being in love alone, and not because of anything Thomas has done. Eddie however has a difficult time accepting a change for himself, but Thomas is home, comfort, safety and all those good things we're supposed to have. Meanwhile, the darkness inherited from his mentor, Kaspar, seems to be growing and spreading within Thomas as the team tries to fight off the new threat to their territory.

I liked this outing
I actually really enjoyed this - up until the ending/epilogue. And that's not to say it ended badly, because it didn't. It just descended too far into saccharine territory for me. Thomas and Eddie were sweet and hot together, and I liked how their relationship progressed from friends to lovers. The ending was good in theory, I liked the idea of it. I just thought it was poorly executed. I loved the 'falling to one knee sentiment' and thought it was a nice touch. However, their 'voices' didn't ri ...more

Ok, so how to review this book? Let's see what I can come up with here. First I want to start by saying that I love Tina Folsom and I love the Scanguards series. I was very weary when this book came out because it is m/m as this is Thomas and Eddie's story. I may be okay with people being gay but that doesn't mean that I am going to watch gay porn either... So I really struggled with wanting to buy this book. I'm not going to sugarcoat it, there is A LOT of m/m action in this book that is very d ...more
LOVED IT!!!!!! What can I say, I've been waiting for Thomas's and Eddie's story for a long time and I'm really glad Tina told it. Tina, you need to write more m/m!! Fabulous job and one of my fav m/m romances. This genre has really been growing big time and I love to see an author who traditionally writes hetero romance jump into another genre, especially m/m. I had only read hetero romance for about 40 years and now I read almost exclusively m/m, have for about the last three years, because I j ...more

I don't understand M/M or F/F relationships. Yeah, I get the emotional and physical aspects, but the way their brains work is a mystery. Consequently, I wouldn't normally read a book (or watch a movie) about same sex partners. I AM true to the belief that everyone is entitled to their beliefs, actions, and behaviors as long as they are not harming others. Love is unconditional, and a life partner is a life partner.

That being said, this was the best book of the whole "Scanguard" series. I admired

I've read all of the Scanguard books but this one is one of my favorites. Since the character of Eddie was introduced in Amaury's Hellion we've watched Thomas' obvious crush on his "straight" roommate, Eddie.

In Thomas's Choice we watch Eddie slowly become aware that he's attracted to Thomas. Tina Folsom does a great job showing Eddie struggle to accept himself as a gay man and understand why that was so difficult. On going societal messages had left Eddie with the message that his being gay woul

Thomas's Choice is the 8th book in Tina Folsom's Scanguards Vampires series. Each book can be read as a stand alone book but to get the most enjoyment out of the series, I do suggest reading them in order.

In Thomas's Choice, Thomas has the hots on Eddie, the newbie vampire he has been mentoring for a year. Thomas is very good at keeping his feeling to himself so Eddie has no idea that Thomas likes him till Oliver spills the beans by mistake. What follows is an intriguing romance with some action
