Opening Line: “Two things pain can do for you: sharpen you up or dull you down. It never does anything for your mood.”

I’m pretty certain this was a case of the right book at the right time. And I say that because I’ve read some highly rated books lately that for whatever reason I’ve struggled to get through and yet couldn’t put this one down. It might just be that I haven’t read a paranormal (vampire) romance for ages and I welcomed the change from NA, YA, erotic shades of grey and romantic susp...more

I don’t have much invested in the Prime series, but I found I THIRST FOR YOU to be a great in between book. I love how strong and different these Prime vampires feel from other vampire books.

Prime vampire, Marcus Cage is running from scientists who want to find the answer to immortality, after escaping from their clutches.

Weak, he searches for his bond mate, who will heal him faster, and finds Josephine “Jo” Elliot. Jo is struggling to recover from injuries as well as guilt...more

I liked this book up until the heroine told the hero, "You complete me." Give me a fricking break, that has to be one of the sappiest sayings ever! Note to future authors: Never say "you complete me", or if your book is medieval, don't use "saucy wench". I swear the next Scottish or Irish book I read that starts out with "saucy wench", I'm starting a drinking game and am going to do a shot for every time it's said. I plan to be thoroughly drunk by page 100.

Okay, beyond what I just wrote, I loved...more
A great series if you like the sexual strong male characters and their equally strong minded mates. For those who like vampires and romance will not want to put the book down. Marcus Cage is running from his captors in the Arizona desert when he stumbles upon Josephine Elliot who is camping there. Jo is a pilot struggling to cope from a crash that killed five passengers. The physic connection brings Marcus to Jo his breed mate. There is a lot of action in keeping one step away from Marcus' abduc...more

I had this book for about 10 years now. So I've read this a few times. I do like it but found Jo really annoying. She was so ignorant when it came to Gavin manipulating her. She's supposed to be empathic or whatever. Conveniently, at the time she couldn't read Gavin's thoughts. Really? Did she not think it was weird that a stranger was holding her against her will in a guarded place though? Whereas with Marc, she HAD the chance to leave him, but she chose not to. That was her own trust. She shou...more

I know this book is a bit old for me....but it's REALLY good. Susan Sizemore is a good author and I love the way she portrays vampires. She's also pretty creative with the bonds between Primes and mortal women. She's very vivid with vampire sex I might add. It's not so much porn as a work of art. I many of her books it's a beautiful and sacred thing.

This book in this series wasn't quite as interesting as the others book i have read in this series but it was still a really thoughtful book. I mean its good that she changed it the same old story-line from vampire loving human girl to a new story-line a genetically experiment vampire that escapes the lab and finds a human girl he falls in love with. They got on this like wild escape to escape the lab's evil hands just to study them both. Although the main characters disliked one and other at fi...more

This was a straight up story. No depth, except when Jo & Marc talked to each other. Every action happened and that was it. It was also VERY predictable because it was. Example: Jo is a pilot, she notices a plane. That's all you get at first. They try to escape. Marc suggests a humvee...Good GOD! "Oh! The plane, I forgot!" really? in 12 hrs! You are a pilot! DUH!! Predictable!This happens throughout the story.

I read the first book in the series, I BURN FOR YOU, in August 2010. At that time I had really gotten into the whole vampire/paranormal genre, but other than the Anita Blake books, almost all of what I'd read had been lighter fare, chick lit type or bordering on chick lit. I BURN FOR YOU was a darker than I was used to and took a little bit for me to get into. The mythology behind the vamps in this world was also more convoluted and confusing than I was used to. I don’t really remember much abou...more
Marcus, of the Family Caer (not the Clans, which are more human protectors than the Families, but otherwise have the same, with strong feelings of familial obligation, of tradition, of self control and honor)...

Josephina, daughter of a police woman, pilot like her father, uses her talents to bring people to safety in emergencies... a psychic, reading people's feelings...

Marcus, betrayed by his spec ops partner, captured and experimented on by an old, rich man who wants the secrets of his immorta...more

I Thirst for You is a great paranormal romance that delivers some action and adventure as well. This is the first book that I read by Sizemore, and I really enjoyed it and hope to read more by this author. This book is part of a series, but I was able to follow things just fine so it can be read as a stand alone. Sizemore does a great job at developing both of her main characters and also sets up a hint of a character that I am assuming appears later in the series in a later book which I always...more

The second book in the vampire series - “Primes”.

Everything about this book was structured and paced perfectly, like ocean waves crashing on the beach, it kept your emotions rolling along and on the edge wanting to know what happens next. Plenty of sex and sexual tension throughout. A small hint of Primes background was given of their society groups letting you know the types – Clans, Families, Tribes. This time around you get more of a sense of the characters and have more of a connection to th...more
If you like the on the run theme, this Vampire Romance is one of the best out there. The world building is excellent, creative, and compelling.

Josie is great heroine and watching Marcus fall in love is great stuff.

If you love Vampire but are sick of the same old same old, try this series.

This book can be read as a stand alone though.

This love story has humor, action, well done sexy times, and a couple you really want to have a happy ending.

A really fun and original book with a set of themes...more
This book is better than the first in this series and took me by storm from the beginning. I loved these two characters and how they healed each other's brokeness. I highly recommend this book and it is so deliciously uncomfortable because he is her kidnaper. She keeps trying to get away but still wants him because he is one of the only people to truly see her all the way through. Marcus is wonderful to read because his thought processes are so interesting. He thinks so methodically but then he...more
I actually didn't read the first book in this series before I read this one. So the change of characters was a good thing because it felt like I was reading a book that stood on it's own. I loved the whole concept of the storyline, it seemed orginal, well to me it did. I also loved the kind of childish bickering that occured between the main two character.
I thought this book was well written, entertaining and contained everything the paranormal romance genre could ask for
It only took me up to 3 hours to read I Thirst For You. (The font is huge making the book look bigger than what it is). This is the first Sizemore Vamp book I've read and will probably be the only. Predictable and just plain ol meh, it just needed something more to make it a keeper. Character development? Maybe. I will give that it had just enough to keep me reading- I did finish it after all. Otherwise, one big Snoozefest!

I found this series when cleaning out my paper books now that I have an ereader. This reminds me why I love Susan Sizemore so much. Excellent!

In this Marcus, on the run from some bad guys, takes Jo against her will and recognizes his Bond Mate. Jo is drawn to him against her own better judgement and falls for him. Eventually she betrays him and it's up to Marcus to save their lives.

This was an intense emotional read. The darkness of this novel surprises me because of the violence and hostility that pours out.

We have a man who has been abused and experimented on. We have a woman who was broken do to her job. It is obvious these 2 people need each other it is just unfortunate how it plays out.

I am fully appreciative of the story line and characters.
I liked it better than the first one, mostly because I understood the series' world better. I also enjoyed sarcastic hostage/hostage taker banter between the two. I laughed outloud towards the end when she finally agreed to the blood exchange, I'm smiling just thinking about.

This book is almost like the book i burn for u but its like more deep i guess u can and i also think that the author did a good job of writting both books but in a way that they would both be different.....gotta luv this book also......u people should also read this too.
This book in the series was better than the last. I think this author likes a bit more angst in her stories than I like but I enjoy the build of the plot and the characters passion. Her world of vamps is different and interesting.

Very Hot! Susan is amazing. She creates real, breathing characters who have complex emotions and wicked senses of humor. I am usually chuckling and biting my nails in anticipation through the whole book.
