Crimson Carousel, Book One

When a string of apparent suicides leads Jessie Curtis to a famous rock band, she's convinced nothing can shock her anymore.

This was a freebee on Amazon when I got this and I know that Ellora's Cave is for erotica. So I knew what to expect when reading this one. Lots of erotica with a bit of story thrown in for good posture. I don't mind that sort of story at all. I thought this was really good and lived up to my expectations.

This is the first book in a series so I realized they had to get through a lot of explanation so that we would have an idea of what was happening.

Jessie is fiercely loyal to her one time lover a
Lee Anne - OMG! It's TOOOOO Cold!
Interesting short story about a Vampire Rocker. We don't really get much of the rocker side of this vampire. We're only at one concert and don't interact with his band members much or his groupies.

Jessie has the "gift of sight" and uses it to help solve cases. She's led to Rafe and his rock band based on a series of "suicides".

Rafe and jessie embark on an adventure to stop the "suicide" which are really homicides.

Aubrey Rose brings a slightly new element to vampires in this novel. They don't onl

Jessie is a private investigator with psychic abilities who is looking into the a string of suicides connected to the rock band Pyrite with lead singer Rafe who happens to be a vampire. This short story had a promising premise, but then devolved into pornography. I had to laugh out loud over a blowjob giving one vampire abilities and a threesome strengthening the bond! This was another free book for the Nook, otherwise I probably would not have wasted my time.

Erotic fiction and the erotic part was decent but could have been better. The story was great in theory but the author seemed to have rushed to get to the end which left out a lot of material. Was a quick read but I would have enjoyed it much better if it had been longer with more plot and character development. I tend to like my sex scenes with a little more substance.

Thankful I did not pay for this. Was not the worst I have read. The story was fine until the addition of two other characters toward the end. Gratuitous sex and a tidy ending is what made this not so great for me.

This was a kindle freebie and a very fast read for me. Great storyline, very unique. First adult vampire book ive read... lots and lots of crazy sex lol. Also, was very fast paced. I thought the ending was too rushed but overall this was a smutty, but good, read.
a kindle freebie from EC with vampires in a rock band involved in murder
