Once upon a time, he had a last name and a pulse—and he was straight. But Marcus Desarno meets his demise in an explosion of broken glass and twisted metal, and when he wakes up, he’s a blood-sucking, sexually ambiguous, card-carrying member of Green’s Hill, the northern California refuge for the fey, the terminally furry, and the undead. It’s a tough transition, but gentl ...more

I should have known better than to pick up this book:

1. I have already tried and failed to enjoy Lane's Little Goddess series and had decided long ago not to try any of her m/m stuff set in that same universe, and
2. I typically don't like vampires or werewolves in m/m fiction. Why I like it in het fiction but not m/m, I don't know, but it almost never does anything for me.

This time I was drawn in by the title. I just couldn't help myself, but halfway through the book and I just didn't care about

I couldn't resist the title.I Love You, Asshole! it spells hero as a jerk and the cover is so erotic I just had to plunge into it.As promised the story didn't disappoint me.It was a fast paced story with lovable MC and some really nice side characters.
I was swooning over the story,sexy vampires having sex and then fighting like bitches...

But let me assure you the sex scenes were not dragged pages after pages like some author do and scenes between two heroes were filled with passion and downrig

I don't normally read paranormal romances, but this was freaking Amy Lane, so I thought I'd give it a shot. Unfortunately, I just couldn't connect with the characters or the world they inhabited. Period. *shrugs* Clearly it's just not to my tastes. If PNR is your thing, it might be worth giving this one a go.

However, genre aside, the writing in this novella just wasn't as strong as I've come to expect from this author. In the brief bit that I read, Lane abused the parenthesis o
This is the second story I've read set in the Little Goddess world and it makes me want to read their story more!

I really liked Marcus and Phillip, though a lot happens in so few pages. There are quite a few characters that have stories elsewhere and so we only get bits and pieces.

Do not “judge a book by its cover“ or in this case “ by its name.“ We who have been reviewing Amy Lane and her Greenshill stories for years, all those followers know what I mean when I say “This is one terrific view of what was happening in the lives of two popular residents in Our Little Goddess Series” Bravo !

I just love when I get the scoop to fill readers in on a background story of a book I am reviewing. So, we who keep up with Amy Lanes Little Goddess Series were asked by Amy to nominate m

Let me start off by saying that if you are interested in reading The Little Goddess series, do not read this first! There are way too many spoilers!

That being said, I really enjoyed reading about how Marcus and Phillip got together. It was very interesting and of course, I had no clue....TWENTY years??? Amazing! I guess some communication would've helped!

I really liked it around the halfway mark ~ mainly because that's when more characters from The Little Goddess series started coming in...esp

Wow I really enjoyed this one. Though I haven't read the other stories this was strong on it's own. Marcus and Philip were really good together - the sex was hot and the eventual HEA most welcomed. Though there was a bit of distance with the characters - because they are only ever really in one place doing a single thing or two -- it would have been a bit stronger connection wise if we'd seen them (vs being told) doing more things together.

A strange, lush book that blends comic fancy and serious angst. It MUST be read as part of the Little Goddess series to land fully, but I enjoyed it quite a lot...

Full review posted on jessewave. :)

A strangely philosophical book that focuses on emptiness and the idea of CRUSHES as something active and dangerous.

The central relationship between Marcus and Phillip is enchanting and the sex smokes, but a lot of sideline incident (from other, earlier book) muddies the water at points with minimal e

Oh, it was so nice to learn of Marcus's background and how he came to Green's Hill; and how he met Phillip...........

Because there are so many characters from the Little Goddess books, anyone reading this without having read the 4 LG books previously, might get befuddled by the references to people and events (eg:I was in tears again for the night Adrian died, even though this was seen through Marcus's eyes).

But the dialogue between Marcus and Phillip was great: it made me want to laugh; or sigh
This story was at turns frustrating as well as bittersweet. Marcus is the 'nice guy' not willing to push Phillip after realizing his feelings; and Phillip is trying to understand his relationship with Marcus and going about it in a way that seems to do more harm than good.

Usually I feel a little daunted by polyamorous relationships or orgies in the stories I read, yet the one in this story made me think of how puppies/kittens pile together. I saw it as their way of trying to cope with their imme

I think if I had read the rest of the series this would have been more enjoyable. As a short it has lots of summarized details from the rest of the series which makes the actual story between the two MCs shorter. I wish there had been a little more detail and insight into Phillip. Most of the story I disliked him because he put off such a "party-boy" atmosphere that it was hard to find why Marcus loved him. Still it was a good read even as a lone book. I hope to improve the rating if I read the ...more

I'd say this is more of a 3.5 for me. I think the problem with all of these Green's Hill stories is that they're separated into like, 5 different series! So, in order to fully appreciate any of them, you've really got to read all of them. That's sort of frustrating. Nevertheless, I did enjoy this book. :)

ETA: I also think that cover is extremely unattractive...

This was a good story but there was something missing for me to love it and want to read the other books in the series (which apparently I totally spoiled myself for by reading this first. oops.).

3.25 stars. An interesting visit to Green's Hill as two newly made vampires spend more than twenty years of miscommunication before they finally get their act together. A little frustrating.

I usually love Amy Lane's books. I'll admit I haven't read them all, but I found this to be not my cup of tea. I liked the beginning and ending, but was lost in the middle. 2.75 Stars

Umm, well, this book is unique...
The only reason I am giving this book a 2 star rating is the main character loved this person for 20 years continuously. Since the main character is a vampire and he is immortal, time is endless to him. The author beautifully captures the emotion the main character feels, the deepness of the feelings, the amount of feelings, and how as time passes, the feeling does not disappear.

Otherwise, this book might be a zero star because the guy Phillip is a total a**hole,

This was one of the books I just couldn't like.
First of; if the MC's had just communicated honestly, the 20 year wait wouldn't have even happend.
Truly this whole book was pointless to me because of that.
Secondly, if they all know so much of each others inner thoughts because of some telepathic mumbo jumbo, wouldn't the MC's have at least glimpsed more of the other MC's inner thoughts and feelings (in 20 years!)?
Lastly the narration of the story just didn't do it for me.

It is faithful to Amy Lane's style, but I have to admit that it was somewhat lacking. The ending was nothing like the smooth endings that I am used to with other of Mrs Lane's books.

I’m not sure I completely understood this two “gay for you” approach of the plot, but for sure it was something I have never read before. When Marcus is turned into a vampire, he is straight and with a girlfriend he loves, he has never once desired men and he was completely satisfied with his love and sex life. But a newly made vampire is dangerous, and it’s custom to have them interact only with same-sex supernatural creatures, so that they can be as forceful as they want without causing damage ...more

Fantasy vampire M/M unrequited romance with some gay-for-you ambiguity because becoming undead can change your personality more then a little bit.
Marcus Desarno becomes just 'Marcus' after dying suddenly in an accident and is forced to become a vampire and about ten years into his new dead life, he meets and is forced to make Phillip into one as well or let him die in a sudden avalanche (long story which is putting me off skiing this winter!).
Marcus lives with lots of shifters, fey and vampires

For those who haven't read any of the main Little Goddess stories, there are going to be spoilers for them in this one in the form of references of when these characters (Marcus and Philip) were in them doing various things, so be fairly warned. (I knew some major bits already, but there were new details from here that I didn't know or were explained more thoroughly than I expected.)

That said, I really liked this one. I don't remember much currently about Litha's Constant Whim, the only other Gr
This was a quick and fluffy read. Had the obvious Happy Ever After at the end. I really wish there was more depth to it. I would like to have experienced more than just the relationship part. For example, when they go out and recruit, or when they go out to protect and such. Those things are totally glossed over and you're left with just the fluff. Maybe the other books in the series are more in-depth? This is the first one I read because I'm a sucker for the GFY titles.

It's predominantly a MM
I adore the story of Marcus and Phillip. They were so wonderful in the glimpses I saw in the first two books and it was great to read their story.

For some odd reason it's Phillip that I really fall for here. I mean you can't help but love Marcus. He's perfect. Or, almost perfect. Phillip is so very, very lost in emotional arenas that its like watching a little child try to understand calculus. Perhaps it's the very small glimpses of shyness and vulnerability that does it.

Regardless, I'm so happy
