For starters...WOW!!! I think this was my fav of this series. I was on the edge of my seat for parts of it. Had my hand over my mouth saying, "oh no, how are they all going to get out of this one"?

The story actually takes place in two different settings...Alaska, at the resort and in Argentina, on Dria & Rafe's island. Jon is left in charge of the resort with a bunch of weres coming for a big hunt. Dria, Rafe, Drew, Bob, Tommy & Chelly all head to the island. That's when the s*** hits the fan i

I have a serious case of crazy eyes after reading this. Good crazy eyes. The type that are DYING to move onto the next book or novella or DEAR GAWD ANYTHING I JUST WANT MORE AND I'M NOT GOING TO USE PUNCTUATION OR UN-LOCK THE CAPS LOCK UNTIL I GET IT!

*ahem* Sorry about that. I got a little emotional there. For the record, since I have #3.5 sitting on my Kindle, I've decided to use both punctuation and regular typing for the remainder of this review. You're welcome.

So. Some stuff happens here. Ki

As with the other two books I continued to enjoy this story. This was also told from different points of view of each of the main characters. Unlike in the second book where the story was passed off to each person seamlessly... This was a little different because the group was in two different locations. This made for quite a few cliffhangers and it urged me on to not want to stop reading so that I could get back to the cliffhanger scene to see what was happening. I do not find this type of stor ...more

Book 3 finds our super-vamp, Dria, and her sexy as sin hubby, Rafe on their way to Argentina. With them are some members of the seethe; Paul, Drew, Chelle. Dria and Rafe are bound and determined to figure out who wants them dead. Coming to the Tribunal's base before their intended arrival date doesn't seem to interrupt the plans of those that want Dria and Rafe to disappear...permanently.

I first want to state the I have not read the previous books. My opinion is based solely on reading just Big Game. I like reading books in order but I also think that each book should be able to stand alone if someone chooses to read out of order. That being said Big Game is a book that you can read alone but a few things were confusing. Such as Dria and Vivian. I wasn't sure what was going on but I realized that they are one in the same. Dria to her hubby Rafe and Vivian to everyone else. After ...more

I really like these characters. It's a great core group. The writing is a little weird, each chapter is from a different character's point of view & their words and interactions. The chapter tells who's it is (sort of like a title). Once you get used to it, it flows pretty well. This one didn't have the amount of sex as some of the others, but it had tons of action and mystery that starts pretty much from the beginning. Most of the characters have been in other books, & this one is a continuatio ...more

I won this book on the GoodReads First Reads.

Since it was the third book in the series I wanted to read the previous books to fully enjoy it. Ok, I know the author considers this to be her best book in the series and I have to agree. Don't get me wrong. I enjoyed the previous books as well, but reading this one had me more on the edge of my seat. I sincerely hated to have it end. The revelation of who is behind the tribunal attacks was interesting and I can't wait for the next book. I like the

Couldn't sleep anymore so I woke up and realized that Big Game came out today so I went searching to see if they had it available to buy yet and to my surprise they did! Instantly bought it and I am currently reading but when I came to add it to my currently reading list on Goodreads, imagine my surprise that it wasn't listed. Of course I just HAD to add it because this is one of my favorite series. I will probably spend the rest of my day trying to finish reading this book. Definitely loving it ...more

Having skipped a book I was worried that I wouldn't be able to follow the story line, but I was surprised. I love the VV series and found out that even there is a order to the books, you don't have to read them in order to love them. Dria and Rafe are still the awesome couple they started off being. Dria's determination and Rafe's love for her are a sweet, sexy and powerful combination. With the deception of the Tribunal and Dria's want to fix it poor Rafe has his hands full. I loved Jon, but wh ...more

I cannot say enough good things about this series, I loved it!! Another great story, this one kept me turning the pages-very intense! Vivian and rafe go out of town on business and almost lose their lives. The descriptions in this book make you feel like you are right there with them. Lots of Sub characters to love and hate in this series.

BIG GAME is the third book in C.J. Ellisson’s vampire series of novels featuring Vivian Alexandria-a powerful sexy ancient vampire with the ability to manipulate reality and the world around her including fulfilling sexual desires and fantasies all with her powers of ‘suggestion’. But her power has been concealed from those who wish to destroy everything that she is-but someone in the Tribunal knows. The novel is written from varying point of views,

Book three of the V V Inn begins where the previous story left off. The beautiful Vivian (a.k.a. Dria) is on her way to Argentina with her husband and a few servants to get to the bottom of the recent visit from members of the Tribunal. Worried that her secret has been discovered, she and her husband Rafe show up unannounced to infiltrate the Tribunal and get to the bottom of things. When the tables turn on them, Rafe and Dria find themselves in

The first person present point of view in this book required even more concentrations than The Hunt. Not only was there several people used to narrate this story, but there was two locations, so in essence we were actually reading two different stories. One story happens at the V V Inn in Alaska while the other happens in different locations in Argentina. As in The Hunt, each member of the seethe gets their chance to narrate their point of view.

No Spoilers....This installment of the VV Inn series is told from the POV of all the Seethe members again, however since you already know them from the previous book it was like visiting an old friend. This can be read on its own however there is a lot of history you will miss by not reading the previous books. This book does not have a cliffhanger. Now onto the good stuff, this story gave me the feels, I fell in love with John again, and Rafe more. I was so impressed with Asa, and the vampire i ...more

They knew that they were flying into danger because Cora had discovered Dria’s secret, she not just an ancient but also a rare vampire with manipulator capabilities. They never realized just how far Cora would go to make sure that Dria and Rafe dies though.

You do not want to miss out on this book or the rest of the series! Big Game is the third full-length story in the V V Inn series and it is just as awesome as the ones before it. Like The Hunt, it is told through multiple characters POVs, which just makes it a more enriching tale.

The Big Game splits Dria's seethe. Jon and Asa are left behind to run V V Inn for werewolves while Dria and Rafe goes to Buenos Aires to find out who is plotting against them. From the last book, The Hunt, Caro revealed that Dria has many enemies who are willing to see Dria falls.

This book has two plots going on. While Dria and Rafe tries to discover who Caro is working for or with, Jon and Asa and their fellow werewolves are attacked by an unknown enemy/enemies.

At first I did not think I would like this book as it took place in two separate locations. One in Alaska, and the other in Souther Argentine at the seat of Darkness for all vampires.

But the more I read, the better the book was. Both stories flowed together in a sense that was understandable and connected to both stories. This was done by phone calls between both groups.

While one put Asa, Jon and the werewolves that came for a hunt, and met with a surprise interesting and kept you wonder what w

The third book in the VV Inn series is the best so far. It is once again written from various characters POV and has two settings (Alaska and Argentina) with two story lines that still manage to intertwine well. It has all the great qualities of a good book, humour, action, suspense, a few surprises and of course some sex. Sex in a book should titivate and enhance the story, not overpower it and become the major focus. I think this is the mistake that some authors have made in their later books, ...more

Wow this series just keeps getting better and better! Big Game is the perfect name for this book that’s for sure. In this book Vivian and half of her seethe go to Argentina to try and find out who’s plotting ageist her and why?

Jon and Asa stay behind to run the Inn and open it to a new kind of costumer this time it won’t be vampires it will be werewolves!

I wanted to love this installment of the V.V. Inn series, and it started out with promise but the climax was anticlimactic. I'm left feeling like I've been worked up and not given the action I was looking for.

I'm glad Jonathan is getting a chance at romance, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't hoping for his fantasies to come true.

It was nice to get a little more back story on some of the characters. Gives them a bit more depth and has me interested in what's to come.

Wow I started this series and couldn't put it down. Ms. Ellisson is a truly gifted writer. If you like the supernatural you will love these books. I bet once you read the 1st book in this series you won't want to stop. Men are just as excited about this series and women. This take on Vamps, Were's and Sups is refreshing. What a great storyline the Characters are still strong and the new introductions are amazing. You feel like a guest at the VV Inn instead of just reading the book. How EXCITING! ...more
Vivian and Rafe head to the Tribunal's base to find out who is betraying her. What they uncover has Vivian questioning everything and it is only made harder with leaving Jon and Asa in Alaska to manage the hotel. Nothing goes as planned and Vivian is not sure she and Rafe will survive. Everything that could go wrong does in all areas including the hotel.

Exciting third book in the series. There were some twists I never expected and found the story a definite page turner. Fans of this series will

I absolutely love these stories. The characters are individually portrayed with all their strengths and their weaknesses and make the story's even better. The storyline has enough twists and turns to keep the reader's interest. Who knew own could route for the vampires and werewolves, but I did.

Brilliant Book. A must for the lovers of vampire and werewolf novel fans. Two story lines which keep you involved and feeling part of it. Felt myself being drawn into the stories and second guessing what was happening.I felt that I have got to know most of the characters in the series and shared the thrills and emotions that they experenced. The sexual elements were a bonus addition and very enjoyable.
Can' t wait for next book.
Thanks C.J
