Eternal Craving (Gods of the Night #2)
He's been promised a new life as the hunter he once was. But Al soon learns that all the rules have changed. Now he must control his most basic urges: the need to kill, to feed, to mate. And the woman he wants looks at him with both heat and fear in her eyes. Jenna Maloy doesn't buy this story that he's come to Philadelphia to save souls. She seems to see through the laye
The dinosaur shapeshifters!!!
When I first picked up Eternal Craving, I didn't know it was the second book in Gods Of The Night series. After reading for a while, I was wondering if I should go back to read the first one but then decided to try continuing it. I found out that there was not a problem to start the series with this book because the author provided enough ...more
This time we learn about Al. An innoc ...more
That said, the execution of the unique idea could be a little better. I'm probably being a bit tougher than usual because I just came off of Patricia Brigg's 5th Mercy Thompson book Silver Borne (Mercedes Thompson, #5), which is a home-run according to most reviews. The difference ...more
Wow, what a great follow up to Eternal Pleasure. This God’s of Night series just gets better and more exciting. I couldn’t put the book down because I just had to know what was going to happen next. These dinosaurs are awesome and so savagely sexy with just one look deep into their eyes and they have you stripped and pounding into your heat in a beastly ravaging feast (imagining and licking my lips – time for a cold shower). Al and Jenna’s romance was very adventurous and I l ...more
The heroine of book 1 [Eternal Pleasure:] sister's has come to visit - in truth she's there to check out the new husband and the guys he works with. She finds guys who are as gorgeous as they are dangerous... and discovers her experiences with tabloid journalism haven't even skimmed the highlights of the REAL supernatural world.
The hero is Al, a man with the soul of an allosuarus and anger management issues. He and the heroine are pit ...more
Jenna is Kelly’s sister and also a tabloid w ...more
I first read this series at least five years ago. It stuck in my memory the way a great story should but I forgot the author's name and the name of the books. My husband gave me book money for my birthday and I spent three days going through author profiles on Amazon before I stumbled upon the series. The first book of the series isn't available on Kindle so I bought a paperback edition and couldn't wait for it to arrive before I started reading the books. Does it sound like a ...more

I think I got most of my eye-rolling out of my system when I read the first book in this series three years ago. (Here's my review for that previous book, Eternal Pleasure.) This time, while I was not enthusiastic (to say the least) about reading another book in this series, by this author, I went in knowing what I would find.
And find it I did: some cheesy writing with an overabundance of repeating phrases ("t ...more
Jenna Maloy travels to Philadelphia to check in on her sister, Kelly, who has been whisked away by her new husband. Jenna has some suspicions, since Kelly only knew her new man for less than a month before they got hitched. In Philadelphia, Jenna meets Al—one of the Eleven—who she finds out actually has the soul of an Allosaurus. Because of course he does. Kelly hasn't actually told her sister anything about the new "family" that she has joine ...more
I loved Nina Bangs' writing style, and the idea of prehistoric beasts saving humanity was pretty original. However I just didn't love the story all that much. Granted once I got near the end I couldn't put it down.
Bangs' is a great storyteller. Her descriptions are great and her character development is awesome. The stor ...more
And I’ll be damned if I didn’t love every last word of this book, despite my initial eye rolling. I kept thinking ...more
Again, I am astounded. Again, the character depth and super-special-awesome plot have left me craving (haha, get it?) more. Like an addict, only without that dirty feeling. The small revelations were a delightfully tantalizing tease, miraculously manainge to neither reveal too much or too little. I appreciate the talent it takes for an author to do that, because I would probably struggle to count on one hand the number of books I've read that've pulled it off.
I really liked Al. The way his str ...more
I love finding books about shifters...that aren't the norm.
In Eternal Craving, Al has the predatory instincts, memories and soul of predator...an Allosaurus...all shoved into the body of a man newly woken to his human existence.
Though he's learned enough to pass as a normal person, he could care less about actually being one. He just wants to kill the demons threatening mankind so he can return to his real life with his dinosaur pack.
That is, until he meets Jenna. She arrives on his doo ...more
I'm still slightly shocked that anyone could find a way to make dinosaurs sexy. I've always seen them as brutal, bloody, survivalists. That Nina Bangs not only made them sexy but found a way to make it believable that they have to find a way ...more
Eternal Cravings ended way to quickly for my liking, seemed like it was rushed and there was a random sex scene thrown into the book which I thoroughly expected to end with the line "and then she wakes up" because it was so random.
