May have slight spoilers.

In One Bite To Passion by MaryLynn Bast we meet shy, self-conscious and socially awkward Paige and confidant, younger, sexy, Casey.

Paige and her friend Rosa are out at a military bar in Japan and while her friend is confidant and not at all shy—letting loose and having fun, Paige just can not seem to do the same, even though she would love to let the barriers drop and not care what anyone else thinks.

In walks Casey. Over six foot tall of sexy younger man, Paige is entran

First I would like to give a huge THANK YOU to Holly at FMB Blog Tours for allowing me to be a part of this great tour. I have read some erotica but none with the spin One Bit takes. MaryLynn is brilliant in her writing and captured me right from the beginning. Vampires and Erotica mixed make a deadly combination and a read that could not be put down!

I had a hard time getting into this book for about the first half. It just didn’t hold my interest for very long. I also felt for a paranormal book that this should have had more of a paranormal angle earlier in the book. The only mention of vampires through most of the story is the dreams that Paige is having. I am giving this story 3.5 stars.

I appreciated the realism of the main character because as a reader you can relate to her, her feelings and problems. However based off the summary I thou

You're a beautiful women Paige, remember that and don't let anyone make you feel any different.

As I start to read this book, I was thrown into a passionate, thrilling and lovely story! The storyline was light, short and sweet mixed with enough paranormal romance aspect (my favorite treat) to keep me reading and find out more!

Paige is a normal woman: wife/mom/worker (rather beautiful and totally devoted to her husband and family), but find out after many years of marriage, that her husband, Dalton, had an affair. After working everything out and decided to forgive him, Paige was sent to J

Paige and her friend, Rosa, are in Japan enjoying a night out at the bar. Rosa is living it up, she’s sexy and she knows it, and so does everyone in the bar. Paige is more like a wallflower, a bit jealous of her friend. At first Paige was making me a bit mad, she was being so constantly negative the first night at the bar. I felt like she was just radiating negative energy and that’s what she got in return. But then as the story goes on, and you learn more about her and her past, you see that it ...more

Favorite Lines “You should never doubt your sensuality.”

“By the way, I love the dress. If I could get away with it, I would love to run my tongue along the top and lick your boobs. From this angle… wow”

“Please, Casey. Please don't make me regret trusting and loving you.”

“You ever lay one finger on her again I will kill you. In fact, if I ever see or hear that you have come anywhere near her, you'll wish you were dead by the time I'm done with you!”

MaryLynn you have done it again! I loved One Bite To Passion, What I loved about it is Paige is a real women, What I mean by that is she’s had kids she’s not perfect or Skinny she has curves and stretchmark’s like most of us mothers do. And Casey wow yumm He has to be the most perfect man I swear! This book is a fantasy, paranormal romance to die for! Not to mention some hot steamy sex scenes.

She has done it again. One Bite to Passion is the second book I’ve ready by the amazing MaryLynn Bast. It is a fantasy, paranormal, romance, with some HOT scenes. Paige is uncomfortably forced into the club scene where she meets a man that turns her world upside down. He stirs up feelings and thoughts that she thought impossible. She allows herself to leave her uptight lifestyle and go after what she really wants. Her whirlwind weekend is snapped back to reality when an unexpected guest arrives. ...more

I don't usually like novellas, but I enjoyed this one. The main thing I liked about this book was the characters. In a lot of the short stories that I've read, there is rarely good character development. That is not the case with this book. I think the author did an amazing job in writing characters that are easy to connect with.

This book started out slow. It took about 50 pages for me to start getting in to it. Once I did though, I didn't wa

I should start out by saying I read this book without having any idea what it was about except Marylynn Bast wrote it and it was about vampires. Reading the synopsis now, I realize that by reading it the way I did, it gave me a lot of "ohhhh" moments when I did not see things coming that I might not have had if I had read they synopsis first. I enjoyed this read. It had me wondering what was going to happen next, plus I liked getting to see a heroine who is closer to my age and not the picture o ...more

Another hit from MaryLynn Bast! A different storyline then the "typical" vampire book, and i really enjoyed that about it. This book isnt for the young ones though, it gets pretty steamy in parts, which for the record is NOT a complaint on my end lol

This is the third book I've read of hers, and I havent been disappointed yet!

Overall “One Bite to Passion” is average. I pushed my rating from 2 out of 5 stars to 3 for two reasons: great sex scenes and two engaging characters.

Many women, including me, can relate to Paige. She has a few extra pounds, is average-looking, and middle-aged. She is the central character in the story and has some powerful sexual experiences. It’s refreshing to read about an average middle-aged woman having powerful sexual experiences in a time when most modern romances involve gorgeous, thin,

What I love about this story is that, besides the paranormal aspect, it follows a normal problem in our society. Paige is a wife and a mother who takes a trip to Japan for business. Two years prior, Paige's husband cheated on her with another woman. In the hopes to save her marriage, she forgave him for his indiscretion so they could go on with there lives.

Little did she know that while in Japan, she meets a hot gorgeous guy named Casey. Is this starting to go down the road all of us women drea

I loved that Paige wasn't a perfect 20 or 30 something year old. There I had to say it. It's a fresh breath of air as a reader to delve into a PNR about an older woman. Older but obviously not dead ;) I was surprised and pleasantly so.

The second part I blinked at was Paige's marriage. It works well with this story and creates that extra layer of conflict needed to pull the story together. It's been awhile that I've read a story geared toward adults and not eye rolled at the MC. Paige is the MC f

In One Bite to Passion, Bast introduces us to shy and awkward Paige who is stationed on a military base in Japan with her friend Rosa, who is the complete opposite of Paige. Rosa is a sensual and outgoing gal who loves to have a good time and also has a very open marriage with her husband. Rosa starts to take Paige out to clubs and getting her to open up and explore her sexuality.

As the story progresses we find that Paige has been dealing with a loveless marriage since her husband cheated on her

**I received this book from the author for an honest review.**

One Bite to Passion is Mrs. Bast's Vampire novel. It is a stand alone, so no worries. :-)
Written from the point of view of Paige, we see things through her eyes. She is over 40 and married but very naive. On a business trip with her Rosa her eyes are opened to things she never knew existed.
Paige is younger than Rosa but she has not really lived. While in Japan Rosa brings her out of her shell. That when she meets Casey. I loved Case

Where to start? Let me begin by saying “Wow!” I loved MaryLynn’s werewolves, but I think I have a new favourite with her. This story caught me from the very beginning and didn’t release me even after the last page. The detail and emotion are so deep you feel like you’re not just there with them, but that you are them. The story itself is one of love, sacrifice, betrayal, and triumph, and was expertly crafted in such a way that I will be rereading “One Bite To Passion” many more times.

My Thoughts

Marylynn just has a way with words she has once again transported me into another world that I really didn’t want to leave. I loved Paige she reminded me of myself in a way she was so self conscience about her appearance that so many women feel. Casey well he was just delicious and made me warm all over just reading what he was doing to Paige. I loved watching Paige come out of her shell the whole time being envious. I loved how the story just flowed. I am hoping this is a prequel to
