Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession
This little action pack read sets up the ongoing plot arc. The vampires of Europe wanting to come take over America. We get to spend a little time with Raphael and Cyn. Which is always great. Then we get some more time with Lucas and Kathryn. Kathryn and Cyn meet for the first time and there are some funny moments between those two. I love that they all call themselves the mates club lol. Also this book gives a small back story for Aden. Overall a good little read with a lot of info.
This one took us back to Cyn and Raphael, which is the best couple in the series. She's a complete smart-ass, so I love her. And, he's an unbearable alpha, but in the way that I actually like. I would like this series better if it was always the two of them, solving vampire crime or whatever. But, we are stuck getting new couples who suck each book.

Next up is a guy named Aden, who I already hate.

Oh, the rage review is forthcoming, my friends. Apparently, he is known as a misogynist to even the

My baby, Raphael, really knows how to get my pants wet, my heart pound and my head dizzy. I love him. I love everything about him. So you can guess that he is one of my top favorite book boyfriends. Man, he's one of the best. I love that man vampire so much. As for the story: it's good, but frankly? I don't give a shit about the other characters. I do though, miss Duncan when he was apart of Raphael's men. But Duncan alone, without Raphael? Not so interested.

I KNOW these little novellas are filler but this is the first that FELT like filler.

I am a huge fan of Cyn and Raphael. They are one of my top paranormal couples, and I eat up their books like candy. However, this one didn't work for me as well as the others.

For one, I felt like 1/2 of the book was them having sex and it sort of got repetitive for me. I much rather read about scenes with more action, and I was more engaged during those parts of the story. While Cyn and Raphael have smoking hot

The only reason this one isn't getting a 5-star rating is because I wanted to enjoy Raphael for 1000 pages...

I read this ages ago as I'm a huge fan of these vampires that have a unique world that they rule. It's only when I downloaded the complete collection as I've missed a couple that I realised I'd never shared my enjoyment so here is my albeit short review.
It's a simple story essentially as Raphael and Cyn take a trip to conflab with Lucas about the upcoming council meeting in Chicago and the repercussions that follow a certain vampire lords death. Yet even in this short novella there's a lot going

Great addition to the Vampires in America series. Absolutely love Raphael!! A must read for ViA, Raphael, and Lucas fans. We meet Aden in this Novella. His book is next and I'm definitely looking forward to getting more of him!!!

I started to rate this book 4 stars because it's a short novella, not a full length book. But I just couldn't penalize it for that as it earned a full 5 stars from me.

Bridge over troubled waters . . . that's what comes to mind when I think of this Vampires in America novella. The Who's Who of vampire lords are gathering to oversee the competition for a new Lord of the Midwest territory. There's unrest & trouble brewing in the air, deceitful deals being brokered, and attempted murder. Someone

This was a novella as competition begins for a new Lord, Lucas' former lover and assistant who he reassigned when she showed her jealousy of Kathryn returns and attempts to kill Kathryn/Cyn. We meet Aden who's proven to be an asshole and we get more Raphael and Cyn which is always a win.
My Thoughts - 4.5 out of 5 unicorns - I like-loved it!!
***Received the ebook for an honest review from the publisher

The cover is not my favorite one, but I still like it :)

This is a novella from Vampires in America, and I think it should be read after Lucas, but before Aden just because you get details about what happens in between these books. It is nice to be reading and not wondering what the characters are referring to, so I highly recommend reading it so you don’t miss out. This is a quick

My rating:4 out of 5 stars

"I come from a time when women were chattel to be traded away for economic or social gain. But even I am not so backward that I continue to discount the integrity of women, not to mention their courage and intelligence. Lucas has told me you have issues with females. That is your history, your prerogative, your foolish prejudice. But when you let that prejudice interfere with serious affairs, with matters of life and

VERY GOOD: The characteristics of a 4 star book include: a great story; I loved the characters; and there was an interesting plot and unique story elements; there may have been a few odd things kept the story from being amazing. I would read it again and I would recommend it to a friend.
My Thoughts:
For those of us who need a regular Cyn and Raphael fix, these novellas are the perfect bite sized snacks between the full length releases. Hunted nicely ties together story from eleme
Raphael. Oh Raphael. You could feature in a story about brushing your teeth and I'd give it a five star. Cyn. Amazon warrior queen. You give me hope that IF vamps actually did exist they could never take over the world as there would be women like you around to kick their ass and bring them to their knees.

This is a filler novella to bridge "Lucas" and "Aiden" (Aiden is scheduled to come out in the fall of 2013). I was happy to see that Cyn & Raphael are back to being edgy but definitely the pow

*eARC received from the Author via NetGalley

I'm a VAMPIRES IN AMERICA fan and I'm not afraid to admit that there has been many a time where I was a squeeing fangirl. Loving to get lost in this world like I do, it seriously feels like forever between stories and I long for another foray into the crazy wonderfulness that is ViA. This novella was WELL worth the wait!

A super sexy read with plenty of action & intrigue, the meeting bet

I do love this series. I eagerly await each new release and I devour them. Have done ever since I discovered the terrific Raphael. Why do I "devour" them? Because they are well written, the MC's are always interesting and the women are generally very strong characters as well. These vampires are powerful and fierce, and they do not muck around with their opposition, they destroy them. There are interesting political machinations when they deal with one another and humans. Loyalty is expected and

3.5 Stars

It was okay.
Would have been better if there was more action and suspense. To many words wasted on too many sex scenes. I like hot steamy adult scenes, but these seem to rely way to heavily on them. It takes away from the characters and the story itself.

I would use the word Overindulgence for these stories.
They could have been used to enhance world build.

A great short story—Cyn and Raphael are on their way to Chicago for the competition (fight to the death type) to find the new Lord of the Midwest—there will be war and Raphael is gathering his alliances—the storyline just gets better and better—good to see Lucas and a great intro to Aden

Yummy! I love Raphael and Cyn. Never disappointed. Lucas and Kathryn is also a fun couple. I missed that they are not mated. Surprised by Lucas’ patience. I think we need another “Mates Club” adventure. Aden is interesting. I may reconsider reading him. His feeling towards women has put me off, but we’ll see. Highly recommend. Raphael’s crew have so many different personalities. Always a fun read. One of my favorite series. Enjoy!

What I simply adore about D.B. Reynolds is that each installment of her Vampires in America series just keeps getting better and better. So many times an author adds in too many characters and once it has been awhile you can’t remember who anyone is. Not with Reynolds. Her characters are solid and memorable. I instantly know who they are and what relation they are to others in the vampire world.

Hunted is a great break between books. This novella has us reconnecting with all that is Raphael, the

I love this book as much as I love the others. Cyn and Raphael world will always be an awe. In this novella, we finally found out what Raphael has been planning all along, the alliance with the other Lords. Vampires in Europe are about to start a war, taking over the Vampires in America, their lands and everything. Raphael is helping and controlling and giving a hand to the new Lords who took over states in America. Dethroning the weakest Lords and placing a strong Lords that will stand by him a ...more

Usually I find something to like in novellas of my favorite series, but for this series half of the novella is more often than not devoted to "My Cyn & Raphael" having sex, or talking about having sex. And many, many scenes are just transitions to sex. Steamy sex but too much of a good thing is just boring.

Between the smexy parts this short is a pretty good set up for Aden as he prepares to become a Lord in his own right. Aden was quite gruff and dismissive of females un

Hunted comes after Lucas' takeover and before Aden's, its where Lucas introduces Raphael to Aden, but there are others still ticked off over Lucas' takeover and when they make an attempt at Kathryn and Cyn is near by they make a huge mistake, as everyone knows, no one puts Cyn in danger and lives, and of course Cyn has to investigate it herself :-) and the battle begins as Raphael, Lucas and Aden confront the one who has been endangering them.

This novella was a fabulous addition to the Vampires in America series. Cyn and Raphael continue to be a hot and interesting couple. It was good to see Robbie again and Elke and other characters from previous books. (view spoiler) Very satisfying.

Great story. Can't wait for Aden.

I enjoyed seeing one of my all time favorite couples working as a team. They absolutely rocked...and loved (a lot)...Ms. Reynolds writes some of the hottest sex scenes ever...

A sexy, fun and intriguing novella that just leaves you begging for the next book to come out sooner!!! I adore how D.B. has let us into Cyn and Raphael's life after their mating, I love them together.

Can't wait for Aden.

Oh and BTW it would be really cool to read a novella or comething about Robbie... I like him lots!

*sigh* I do not read this series for the porn. Really. I get it that Cyn and Raphael have a passionate relationship and go at it like bunnies just about everywhere. After I have skimmed through the sex scenes, often the plot and characters are interesting. Since this bit is a tie-in to Aden's book, we get a taste of him to intrigue us. So, carry on. But please keep it interesting.
