Start your review of The Nightlife: Paris (The Nightlife, #3)
Aaron and Michelle descend on Paris, and their misadventures spawn my favorite book in the Nightlife series so far!

(Beware of spoilers if you nave not read the previous books in the series)
She loved the tower. It seemed an affirmation of French culture. A glorious three hundred and twenty-four meter celebration of the phallus. Nous avons le plus grande pénis.
Oh yes, this series is getting better and better with each book! This is deliciously twisted Urban Fantasy for those who enjoy a book

Travis has created a vampiric renaissance unequalled since Salem's Lot. His two main characters, Michelle the master and Aaron her predatory mate are brilliantly written with gallons of gore and development in the lust department as the pair leave a swathe of blood-drained bodies wherever they stay. The sexually casual way the vampires use their prey with descriptions that leave the reader breathless with anticipation are nothing short of genius. Improvisation is the name of the game as Travis c ...more

I fell in love with The Nightlife New York, The Nightlife Las Vegas and Blood Slave, but as hyped up as I was to read this book…nothing could have prepared me for the love I have for The Nightlife Paris! If you haven’t read these books, what are you waiting for? They are amazing and The Nightlife New York and The Nightlife Las Vegas should be read before reading The Nightlife Paris.

WOW! The development of the characters from first book to the 3rd is just amazing. I feel as if I know them personally and feel for each of them.

For the 3rd book in this great Nightlife Series starts with Michelle and Aaron making their way over to Paris after an upsetting end in Vegas. Aaron is dealing with the loss of his beloved Bloodslave and recent wife Anastasia. Aaron has the longing to take another "pet" but Michelle will not let him. This is when Michelle decides to share her terrible p

Wow! It is obvious to me that Luedke has become more comfortable with his characters and the idea of revealing them to us in depth and detail. I never thought of Michelle or Aaron as two dimensional, but in The Nightlife Paris they step out of the pages as flesh and blood, so real that you can almost smell them. However, smelling them may not be such a good thing as this story is as gritty, bloody and fascinating as the rest of the series, but better!

This is the third book int he erotic, vampire Nightlife series.

Having lost his wife in Vegas, Aaron is heartbroken. Michelle attempts to assuage his pain by visiting her home/homeland, but there's a fundamental problem with that: Paris is where Michelle was made a vampire. She's got a lot of badass memories from her time as a sexual slave to her sadistic master, and later as a Nazi hunter in WWII.

So, not all the best things to cheer up a guy.

Half of the book is Michelle recounting her history--

This is the third book in The Nightlife series, a wonderful series that I have to say is becoming one of my favorites. It has everything I like: an interesting plot, paranormal creatures, real ‘non sparkly’ vampires, hot and sexy scenes and leaves me panting for more!

Vampire master Michelle and her fledgling Aaron Pilan, leaving behind the slaughter in Las Vegas taking a nightly transatlantic flight to the city of Light and Love, Paris.

Son, the devil is in the details. It’s the little things that count. You get them right and everything else falls into place.

Well, isn’t that the damn truth! I’m not sure the characters in this series got that memo…

Decidedly darker and somewhat disturbing, THE NIGHTLIFE: PARIS takes the series for a turn towards the dark side and I loved every minute of it! As a lover of the series, I have been pleased with all installments, but THE NIGHTLIFE: PARIS is definitely my favorite to date.

I skipped The Nightlife: New York, though I really am going to have to go back and read it, and really liked The Nightlife: Las Vegas, and I loved Blood Slave, so I was thinking going into this I was going to like it a lot. But, it has historical content, and that usually doesn't do it for me, so I was slightly skeptical. Well, make me a believer, why don't you?

So, I really enjoy Michelle. She's a Vampire, she's a slut, a whore, and she doesn't apologize to anyone for it. She does apologize for

I originally became a fan of Travis' with his first book in the series The Nightlife, New York and was enamored with the characters. The story immediately drew me in and I was hooked on the series. That said, this story was a bit more difficult for me to get into.

The novel opens with Aaron and Michelle fleeing from Vegas after what had happened to Anastasia in the last book. Aaron desires another 'pet' and in doing so causes a conflict with Michelle. Michelle then explains to Aaron the tragic ev

The Nightlife: Paris is the third book in a series focused on vampires Aaron Pilan and Michelle. It is, by far, the best written of the series. I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books. The third blew my mind.

It grabbed me from the first page. However, what makes The Nightlife: Paris so engaging is the reveal of Michelle's back story. Luedke changes Point of View to first person. We see the world through Michelle's eyes as she meets the monster who turns her into a vampire. Her past mixe

Whatever preconceptions you have about Nightlife Paris, throw them away. This third book in Travis Luedke’s Nightlife series is an exemplar on character development and taking a series arc to a whole new level .

The graphic and brutal nature of some of the content does curtail the erotic nature of this novel, but there are still plenty of sex scenes to scintillate and tease, and these two vampires certainly know how to attack their loving with violent enthusiasm.

This is the third book in this series but the first one I read. This can be read as stand alone and I do not think I missed any world building because this book made sense from the beginning. I will be going back to read the others in this series; book one is The Nightlife: New York and is always free if you decide to start at the beginning.

I love this Vampire world! It is sexy but sometimes brutal and these two Vampires prefer to give pleasure rather then cause pain and suffering. However, this

WOW. One word and that describes Nightlife Paris, it totally blew me away. Its so much darker, edgier, full of sadness, anger, jealousy and love. Aaron and Michelle have developed a lot in this third instalment to the point where Aaron isn't the same man he once was. We get to find out about Michelle's past which is hard to read, in parts its horrific and how I felt about Michelle in the beginning is different now. It is rather hard to write a review without giving anything away. But with new ch ...more

Oh Travis...what have you done? I know what you wrote a fantastic series of books about vampires, sex, drugs, and the like. Who doesn't want sex, drugs, prostitutes, dirty cops, and oh yes, sexy vampires in their books? You are NUTS if you answered NO to that question!! It wasn't rhetorical!!

Another great book in this omnibus! This one is my second favorite so far, book #2 being my favorite. I thoroughly enjoyed Michelle telling her story of her wretched past, such a sad and vulgar one, too. It was great seeing Aaron love her so much still after she finally opened herself up to her history. Julian was a maniac, repulsive, heartless asshole that abused, raped, and used Michelle among many other men and women, and then murdered them. I thought to myself, 'How did she ever end up getti ...more
I love the Nightlife series because it it always something a little different while at the same time being familiar. The locations change but you can be sure that or two trouble magnets, Michelle and Aaron, are going to be in the center of something. The writing always pulls me in from the beginning and holds me until I finally reach that last page. There are several things happening in this book and they are played out perfectly by our two favorite people along with someone we met briefly befor ...more
4.5 Stars!
18+ content, violence and gore.

I liked this one best of all the Nightlife series, actually the best of all the Travis Luedke books I've read so far (I've read Blood Slave too). I really enjoyed the peek/throwback in time to World War II.

This book starts right after Aaron and Michelle leave Las Vegas because of the slaughter that happened there and the death of Anastasia, who had been Aaron's playmate/blood slave/wife.

In Paris, Michelle reveals her past, and then we're transported back
I am not usually into characters where the heroine is the dominant in the relationship. I really enjoy my Alpha males. However, I thought I would give this series a shot, cause it sounded really intriguing.

Aaron is actually a really fun snarky guy to read, I preferred his POV most of the time. I was really rooting for him and Michelle to work their unconventional relationship out. I am a total sucker for HEA.

Each book takes you to a new local with this couple, their relationship progresses throu

My Rant: I was not prepared for Night Life Paris. This book completely made my heart ache for the characters. In this book Michelle Aaron are morning the loss of Anastasia. Thats not the only tragedy that we have to witness, we are taken into Michelle's past. Horrible past and you see that the exposure of these incidents are so raw that it changes the characters and they unite more. Just when you think they could be at peace a new villain steps in and now Aaron and Michelle have to protect thems ...more

*A complimentary copy was given by the author in exchange for my honest review.*

The Nightlife: Paris takes our vampires, Michelle & Aaron straight from the carnage of Las Vegas to Paris. We see Aaron struggling to deal with Ana's death & his feelings towards his vampire master, Michelle. She has put her foot down on the subject of NO MORE BLOOD SLAVES. In this third installment of Luedke's Nightlife series we get up close & personal with how Michelle was turned. We see why she is the way she is.

After the events in Las Vegas, the third installment of the Nightlife Series, by Travis Luedke, has vampires Michelle and Aaron in Paris. While Michelle is excited to show Aaron her homeland, Aaron seems as though he’s teetering on the edge of madness after the loss of Anastasia. Michelle finally tells Aaron of the cruel way in which she became a vampire and was treated horribly by her master. While it would seem that sharing her love of and life in Paris would bring them closer together, Paris ...more

In The Nightlife: Paris, Aaron has left Las Vegas with a broken heart, and Michelle seems to decide that it is time to start telling him about her past, but will he still look at her the same way once he realizes what she was in her past?
What neither Aaron or Michelle knows is that they were followed from Las Vegas, by a man that really wants to get a hold of Michelle at ant cost. He wants he blood, and he'll stop at nothing to get it.
