The Nightlife series heats up the cold streets of Moscow.
He shook his head in awe of the predicament he found himself in, again. Hunting billionaires, babysitting werewolves, answering to a fallen angel, and still attached to his psychotic French vampire lover who reeked of blood as he hugged him to ward off the chill...
Aaron, Michelle, and their band of merry mercenaries are in Moscow with a score to settle...

The previous books in this series have certainly had their share of action and suspense, but this book cranked the action all the way up to eleven... See, in the other books, most of the action was reactive. Michelle and Aaron had to get out of a scrape or right a wrong.

Trouble always found them, but in this book, they're seeking it out.
Seek and ye shall find...

Our favorite vampire duo teams up with Ivan, Katya (plus the rest of the Russian Gypsy Wolf Pack), and the fallen angel Urvashi. The plan: infiltrate the compound of a notorious vampire... Bullets will fly, blood will be spilled, and Aaron has a huge choice to make...

Vampire, Good Guy (most of the time)
Slinking around in the dark, geared up for war, he felt like he'd been transported into the midst of a Mission Impossible film. Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to kill a Russian vampire hiding in his fortified mansion protected by an army of militant mafia fuckers.
Oh Aaron... What am I going to do with you? I should probably feel bad for the guy, being a magnet for calamity and all... but he always seems to land on his feet in bed with two or three gorgeous women...

Unfortunately, that list of women seems to be growing exponentially, and it's getting harder and harder to do the right thing... Or even know what the right thing is...

He has his Vampire lover, his Fallen Angel Master, his reluctant Werewolf blood slave, and more women seem to be coming out of the woodwork all the time...

Aaron is content to live out his life quietly, surrounded by his lovers, but fate - and a certain fallen angel - have other ideas.

Fallen Angel, Shape-Shifter
In her vast experience, supernatural aberrations like vampires and shapeshifters often pursued dark, wicked lives of self-indulgence, seldom striving for greatness or enlightenment, Yet here and now, this pack, and this brash young man she held in blood-bond, presented an unusual combination. Powerful, gifted supernatural creatures who cared about humanity. A rarity that intrigued her.
Urvashi pulled Aaron's leash all the way to Moscow in order to take down an ancient vampire who has been selling synthetic vampire venom as a street drug.

She has carefully orchestrated this black-ops style mission - complete with bribes to local law enforcement, a full arsenal of weapons, and a helicopter. She might be a little fanatical about taking down Dmitri, but the threat is a very real one - vampire venom turns humans into addicts almost instantly.

For Urvashi, killing Dmitri is business,
For the Wolf Pack, it's personal...

Werewolf, Blood Slave
Theirs was a love-hate relationship. She loved his cock and his teeth, couldn't find the will power to deny him, and hated herself, and him, for it.
We discover that the pack has been attempting to take down Dmitri for far longer than Aaron realized. Their feud goes all the way back to Rasputin - long enough to tell the history of modern Russia side by side with that of the Pack.

Katya has an extra score to settle - it was her niece who became blood slave to Dmitri and sold out the wolf pack during their last attempt to assassinate him.

Katya can barely keep her focus on the task at hand - her emotions are all mixed up with the knowledge that she too has become a blood slave. Forever dependent on Aaron for his venom.

The synthetic venom created by Dmitri could be the key to her freedom, but she has to find it first...

Jealousy is creeping in - There's barely enough room in Aaron's bed for her, let alone in his heart. His first love will always be the French vampire who he once called master...

Vampire, Femme Fatale
Michelle's survival instincts had kept her alive for near a century, at the price of great loneliness. Though she loved Aaron deeply and couldn't stand the thought of being apart from him, living among the company of wolves was destroying her sanity.
Michelle (my #1 lady crush of the moment) was already a deadly force to be reckoned with before traveling with the gang to Moscow.

Michelle attracts attention everywhere she goes, so the wolves decided to keep her hidden away in her hotel room until they're ready to move forward with the plan. The result: one pissed off, half-starved vampire.

There's no love lost between her and the wolf-pack, and the tense partnership is getting an extra dose of strain once Michelle's bloodlust makes her unpredictable.

So there you have it -
A Vampire who attracts death and destruction,
A pissed off pack of Werewolves,
A fallen Angel with a vendetta,
and a half-starved Vampire ready to eat her enemies...
Yeah... This is going to get ugly...

Stuck babysitting the psycho vampire bullet magnet on a killing spree. The fun never ends in Moscow.
Indeed, Nightlife Moscow was a non-stop parade of blood, sex, & violence - sometimes all three at the same time!

Reading this was an incredibly fun experience, the reader is never sure how much trouble Aaron can get himself into. The Vampire has a tendency to get in over his head more quickly than anyone else on the planet.

All that trouble is catching up with him, though. He and Michelle have left a trail of blood and gore from New York to Las Vegas - from Paris to London and now Moscow.

All that violence is about to catch up with him...
I look forward to seeing what Travis Luedke has up his sleeve for the next book in the series. Moscow didn't leave off with a cliffhanger so much as a promise that life is about to change for Aaron more than he ever thought possible.

Hard to believe it's only been a few months since Michelle reluctantly turned the poor guy into a vampire... Life hasn't really slowed down for him since that moment...

Just when I think Travis Luedke has done it all in The Nightlife Series of books I am corrected once again. You never know where Michelle and Aaron are going to end up or who is going to end up dead in one of his novels. More than that, you never know who is going to become addicted to Aaron and the powerful feeling of the bite.

Michelle, Aaron and Urvashi have found themselves on the dark side of Russia. But they are not alone in this one. They have an entire pack of werewolves by their side. One is Aaron’s blood slave and the rest are family. And hot damn if this book just doesn’t start out full of steam and vengeance.

Though this book can be read as a standalone, I would recommend the entire series so you have a thorough background of Aaron and Michelle. Though Aaron has only been in this world of chaos for four months, their journey seems to have lasted a lifetime.

I sat anxiously awaiting this book in the series, the power of the bite has become my addiction through this series. I cannot get enough of Michelle’s French foul language, Aaron’s wit and charm (yes, that is sarcasm). Then there’s Urvashi… that woman, a fallen angel, is constantly telling Aaron to trust her… why? She is sneaky and deceitful and he is powerless over her. He belongs to her.

I loved The Nightlife Moscow not only because it is a crazy train of power, strength, blood and gore, but because it shows us a lot of Aaron’s personality. I have really come to adore him and his smart-ass nature. He calls it like he sees it, though most of the time it is under his breath or only in his mind. But he stole the show for me.

Yes, there was the usual mix of drugs, power, fighting and death and of course sex. These vamps are just a bunch of horny creatures that can’t seem to get enough. Though the bite seems to tide them over in most cases. Ad in the freak Dmitri, who controls the Russian underground world of all of this mayhem, and you have a nightmare waiting to happen.

Here is what I loved about it, Aaron knows what he wants in his future and who he wants that future with, but no matter what the poor guy does, he gets anything but that. A little jail time, some murders and the deal of the century…millennium… um… eternity… whatever, he has to make the deal or he will not survive much longer. He wasn’t born into this world, but it he is learning to adapt.

Aaron now has a harem of need and want around him. His heart belongs to two of them, his soul to another and now he is needed by more blood slaves to survive. Throw in a child and you have one whacked out world where only the strong, the brave, the vampires and werewolves survive. You have The Nightlife. And in The Nightlife Moscow, anyone can be bought, souls can be sold and no one seems to escape unharmed.

As I have said many times before, Travis writes with such a unique blend of violence, sex and control. These books surprise me each and every time I read them and I am not sure if I will ever get enough of Travis Luedke’s work. Masterfully executed writing that will leave you wondering what direction the story will take next. Travis writes with passion and it bleeds (ha!) through in his characters and storyline. I cannot wait for more!

Received the ARC for an honest review. This is the first time I've read anything by this author and it definitely will not be the last. This book is not for the weak of heart. Great storyline with action, vampires, wolves, fallen angels and not sexy scenes. Guaranteed you'll have a hard time putting it down!!

I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal).

This was my first Read 2 Review book, and I'm sorry it didn't go better. I would like to get the opportunity to participate again.
As stated above, honesty is due, so I will be honest. I didn't like it. I was hard for me to read it, and I didn't finish it properly, I just jumped through the other half of the book. I needed an extension, and still didn't make it as supposed.
That all being said, the book itself is not bad! It's that it wasn't my thing. When I've read the other reviews and decided this book might be my thing and signed up for the read and review, I expected something else. Travis was to be my first male writer in this genre, and I must be honest and say I expected more. More... of what? I have no idea! More of the hard stuff, I guess. The book is hot, characters are hot, it's gory, violent, sexy... But it didn't hold my attention. I didn't feel any said suspense. It felt like all the characters were running through the scenes, without them knowing what they were doing, or why. Just jumping from one WTF scene to the next. I had no idea how they thought to do something, or how they managed to get away with it. Too many collateral damage just because of the poor planning. And I really hate bad planning.

It's a lot of firsts for me with this book. This was the first book in this series that I've read, and is the first I've ever read in the middle of an ongoing series. It just might be that the disconnection I felt from the characters came because of that fact.
I didn't mind the sex and violence scenes. I'm not sensitive and I love to read about it in books. But I do mind unnecessary violence. Gore and blood for the sake of it self is not my thing. I need to know why. It's just that it all felt somehow flat.. no chemistry. Yes, that's what I really missed in this book. Chemistry. I didn't feel any between the characters (sexual or otherwise). Again, it might be cause I didn't "watch" their relationships grow, I just fell into the story with them already built.

Oh, and that scene with the whore at the beginning? Like... "I need to read your mind, let me just plug in... oh, yeah, now I get the stream of your thoughts. It's a bit wet, tho, you might get short circuited." Was that really necessary? Not sexy, cheap.

Maybe it just wasn't the time. I will try and get all the books in this series and read from the start. That way I'll know I gave it all my attention, and will be able to better judge everything.

Thank you Travis for letting us read this book! My review is not the best, but I really appreciate that you share! And, after all, what do I know about books? :)

***I was given a copy of this book for a true & honest review***

I must first say that when I started this book I wasn't sure that it was going to be for me. I'm not a really a big fan of suspense/thriller type books but given there was a paranormal slant to it I decided to give it a chance and I'm glad I did. Having not read any of the previous books in the series the relationship between Aaron and his ladies and how they all came together isn't really clear. However, this doesn't prevent a reader from enjoying the storyline. The language and descriptive scenes were sometimes just a tad over the top but that is my personal opinion only. Some of the language and scenes could be viewed as offensive for some individuals however.

I enjoyed the book after getting through reading the first chapter and I am looking forward to reading the others in the series as they are fun, steamy, action packed, in some spots outright hilarious and fast paced.

James Bond has nothing on Aaron and his many sexy traveling associates. They are a mixed group of occasional paranormal crime fighters. They get mixed into a number of fixes fighting for and protect not only paranormals but humankind as well. As I read they story I sometimes felt sorry for Aaron while he dealt with his ever growing group of ladies. It seems he and his group also seem to manage to find either trouble or drama quite often.

In "The Nightlife Moscow" Aaron's group of ladies increases which puts the poor man in a sticky situation handling all of them and placating his other ladies. The groups mission costs Aaron and his group along with their allies dearly. It also ends up bringing Aaron to the attention of an organization which will make demands of Aaron that he can't refuse but doesn't desire. Looks like his James Bond lifestyle is going to become more of a reality then he expected and he's going to have to start working hard for a living.

You need to read this book as it will make you smile and at times laugh outright. It's funny, sometimes sweet, and steamy throughout. It's a good and fast paced read that paranormal readers will find enjoying. I would recommend this book to friends of an over 18+ age range who doesn't mind a lot of sex, naughty words, and a bit of violence in their reading material.

The Nightlife Moscow (The Nightlife, #6) by Travis Luedke has our two vampires hitting the dark gritty noir streets of Moscow and in true Luedke form this novel explodes with sex and violence to create the genius that is The Nightlife Series sixth outing. If you love your vampires dark, violent and unforgivingly sexy then this series is an absolute must. From the first page I knew I was in for a roller-coaster ride and had better strap myself in. I so love this series.

Vampires Aaron and Michelle have landed in Moscow, on the hunt for a rogue vampire selling a new drug through the Rusiian Mob. With Urvashi, a fallen angel, and a pack of werewolves at their side it is time to clean up the filth that has stained Moscow's streets.

But Dmitri the rogue vampire goes on the offensive sending his hitmen gunning for his enemies. Micelle and Aaron have a real fight on their hands. Being a vampire isn't always what it's cracked up to be.

Very highly recommended for all vampire lovers and paranormal buffs.

This was the first book that I had read from this author but it won't be the last.

It took me a few chapters to get into the story as I wasn't familiar with the characters or the background, but once I did it was gripping. The author really knows how to build up the suspense.

I wasn't sure what to think of the main characters as none of them seemed particularly pleasant at the beginning of the story, but Aaron grew on me.

The book also had a fair amount of blood and gore (much more than I would usually choose to read),however the violence was not gratuitous and it was integral to the plot.

All in all I enjoyed this book..despite it being out of my "comfort zone".

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

** I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Lovers of Paranormal, LoP**

'The Nightlife Moscow' is another great installment to the Nightlife Series. The storyline was great. It was thrilling, suspenseful, full of action, romantic and quite erotic. The way this story played out was great. I never know what Michelle and Aaron will do next. The hot and steamy scenes are well written and seem to get bolder as each book comes out. Hot! This book pulled me in and didn't let go. The turn this book took will be quite interesting in the next installment to come. A great add to your tbr list. Recommended read.

This book is a little out of my comfort zone. It is a little darker than I normally read. I received an ARC copy for an honest review. I have to tell Y’all, I could not put this book down. I am so glad I was given the book for a review. It was really good! I now have to go back and read the rest of this series. I give this book 5 stars. Normally a book this size would take me a week to read. It took me 3 days. I took this everywhere. I was reading it on my breaks & Lunches at work. I even took it to my Dad’s house & was reading it when I should have been paying attention to what he was talking about. LOL. A new fan… Pam James.

Is The Nightlife series, especially Moscow not every single, straight guy's fantasy? What I wouldn't give to have a personal harem of beautiful women wanting no one but me and my awesome sexual touch, a kung fu job and super abilities!

Perfect Fix for Vampire Junkies  
The Nightlife: Moscow has everything vampire-junkies need: sex, blood and violence. Say goodbye to your family and friends. When you start reading The Nightlife: Moscow the rest of your world will seem like a petty distraction. Luedke's whirlwind pacing makes this book impossible to put down. 
The novel starts with Aaron and his crew infiltrating the military compound of an ancient vampire with ties to the Russian mafia. Layered through the intense action in modern-day Moscow is a finely woven alternative magical history giving added richness to the already-intriguing world. 
Just when you think everything is going well for our vampires, Luedke throws in an twist that takes the series in a completely unexpected and glorious direction. The world they live in has never been more interesting. 
I enjoyed Luedke’s first few books. However, everything he’s written from Nightlife: Paris on has been one masterpiece after another.If you haven't read his work yet, do yourself a favor and pick up The Nightlife: Moscow today.
Every time I think Luedke has written the best scene ever he ups the ante. Each book in the Nightlife Series is better than the last. The first half of this book is on par with early Jim Butcher. 
What Luedke has that Butcher doesn’t is sex. Lots and lots of sex. One of the benefits of ebooks is no one can has to know what your reading. However, you may want to read this in private to avoid any embarrassing blushing and hot flashes. There tintilating erotic dances with horrific and fantastical elements creating a breath-taking story. The whirlwind pacing of this book makes this book impossible to put down.
If you took the sex out you would have a book that falls easily in the top 10% of urban fantasy works. Adding the sex brings the Nightlife: Moscow to a completely different level. There is no voice quite like Luedke on the market today.
Link: Exclusive Spotlight on The Nightlife Moscow by Smutsonian.com
The book ends with our characters in a very interesting space. Now I have to wait god knows how long to see what happens next. So the bad news is I don't have a time machine and I have to wait for the next book. 
Vampires Aaron and Michelle have landed in Moscow, on the prowl. In the company of a misfit pack of mercenary werewolves and Urvashi, a fallen angel, the vampires are forced into the violent, decadent underworld of Russian mafia, drugs and blood slaves.
This time the hunters have become the hunted.

Ok, let me start by saying if u have not been reading Nightlife series, turn around right now and get them all! I am a fan of this series! It is Fangtastic!!!

Travis does a really great job with recapping the series so far. You can pick this book up and not have to re-read the first 4 (even though I did cause I just had to read them again!!) This book picks up right where you were left off.

Aaron with all his women are in Russia. Yes he has his own harem of women now lol From his master Urvashi..to his love Michelle...and now with his bloodslave Katya. They are all helping the wolfpack locate Dmitir in Russia. Once they figure out that Dmitri is selling this drug otrok they need to find him to put a stop to it. When they finally catch Dmitir so much more is discovered. He was not selling it but helping out bloodslaves so they would not need him all the time. Urvashi wants to destroy the drug for he should have never had it in the first place. However, Katya talks her into letting her keep it so he does not need Aaron as much. This puts a huge reef in between Aaron and her. For Aaron realizes that he does care for his bloodslave and her withdrawing from him does not sit well with him. Aaron discovers Dmitir's secret diary which shows him secrets to the drug that shows that it prolongs the life of bloodslaves not deplete them. You can tell that something is going on with Urvashi but you will not find out what that is until the end. I will not give that way, but let me tell you you will never guess it right until you read it. This secret of Urvashi's forces Aaron to meet with people he did not know of. Aaron has no choice but to take the deal that is given to him and try to move on with all that has happened.

I felt so much connection with Aaron and how he had to deal with so many people with different personalities at a time. He turned into the most attractive character to me in this book. So loving and warm yet powerful and sexy when he needed to be. You will go through the rollercoasters with him and feel his pain.

The action is fast paced. Once you start this book, you jump right in and basically can't put it down until the end. As always with Travis he gives you one book, but all the while slowly setting up the next book with out you even realizing. Why oh why do you do this to us TRAVIS!! I can’t wait to see what happens now that we have all these interesting new developments and new characters to deal with. This is a great paranormal romance/erotica read and a great continuation of the series. If you have been following along this is a must read for you. If you have not been following you can! Go and start from book one and read them all!!

Review Courtesy of April Hollingworth

The Nightlife Moscow brings you straight into the dark underbelly of a Mafia run Moscow. Where anything can be bought, if the price is right. Aaron and Michelle are enjoying their unique relationship, but bloodslave Katya is not a happy werewolf. She detests the need she has for Aaron’s bite and can’t stand the unusual relationship he has with Michelle, Urvashi and herself. This book is filled with sex and violence, a bad tempered werewolf, and a vampire who likes to get laid.

Opening Scene:

“Wake up you bloody leech.

The Review:

Vampires Aaron and Michelle, along with Aaron’s new bloodslave werewolf Katya, a misfit of mercenary werewolves and the fallen Angel Urvashi, have landed in Moscow. Things are bad enough with the dangerous and violent underbelly of Russian Mafia, drugs and blood slaves, never mind the fact that Dmitri, a Russian vampire billionaire, wants the wolf pack hunted and killed.
Michelle and Aaron along with the others must bring the fight to Dmitri, to battle for their very survival.

Notable Scene:

From the look on Katya’s face, and the twitching of her body, Aaron wondered if this experience might break through the barrier of Katya’s resistance. Until now, she had no idea what she’d been missing. Michelle knew a woman’s body far better than Aaron ever could.
Michelle came up for air, a look of satisfaction on her face. Her hands continued working Katya’s body, grateful for the tasty meal. From the flavor of Michelle’s thoughts, Aaron knew she could have drained Katya dry. Luckily for Katya, Michelle had a rigid set of morals she lived by, and killing her food was definitely against the rules. Michelle had no problem with killing, but she’d seen too much death and chose to handle her feedings with great care. She had been the voice of restraint in Aaron’s ear since she turned him four months ago.

FTC Advisory: Travis Luedke provided me with a copy of The Nightlife Moscow by Travis Luedke. Kindle Edition. No goody bags, sponsorships, “material connections,” or bribes were exchanged for my review.

"The Nightlife Moscow" by Travis Luedke is another strong instalment in this dark, sensual and erotic paranormal action series. This urban fantasy contains Vampires and blood slaves, fallen angels and other paranormal creatures. They are wild, erotically charged, adventurous and they play sexual games.
Luedke not only writes powerful and memorable characters, he also creates formidabble settings and scenarios, stylish atmospheres and much that took me to the edge of my comfort zone. Moscow and its Mafia lends itself naturally to this kind of story and Luedke has capitalised on it well. This is strong writing with sharp dialogue, swearing and explicit language but all of this befits the situations and characters and makes for a hell of an adrenaline filled ride.
I came across this series when it was advertised as free and have regarded this one of my few guilty pleasures. I'm no fan of Vampires and have shunned a lot of the popular books and programmes - all bar True Blood.
The Nightlife Series is that for me - raw, sexual, uncompromising, authentic, wild and wicked stuff. Not for the faint hearted but something that no doubt has its own cult following already. The entire series is highly recommended.

I was offered this book, by the author, in exchange for an honest review.

This book is the type of book I love to read! It has all the action, not a lot of blah blah blah extra explanation, and gets right to the point. I had not read books 1-4, and this book 5 in the series, but I did not really need to read the other books because there was explanation enough to know what was going on without being completely lost.

Overall, this book was really good, if something really..really bad had happened to one character instead of what actually happened, it would have been better because I don't think some people should still be around, because they do not deserve it.

This book has non-stop action, non-stop drama, some porny like sex scenes, but nothing too "WTF" to make you want to gag. I loved the mix of Wolf/Vamp in the story line and I am now far more curious about one character and I cannot wait to read books 1-4 and whatever else comes after this, simply because of Michelle, Aaron, and Urvashi. Ironically, my bosses name is Urvashi and that made her want to buy the series, just because of her name. Very Cool!

I give this book 4.5 stars! Very well worth it!

Note: This is intended for 18+ readers who enjoy dark, steamy, violent reads

This is a first read of this author for me … but it will not be my last. I jumped straight to Book 5 of the series, but quickly caught up, thanks to the way the author wove background into the present storyline.
This book contains vampires, shifters, a fallen-angel (maybe?), the Moscow mafia, multi-love interests, addictive –cravings, a touch of s/m personalities, erotic dark emotions and situations. Has that peaked your attention? Good, because it did mine throughout the book.
The hero of the book, Aaron, seems to have a problem commonly referred to as “jumping out of the frying pan into the fire”. It appears no matter what he does, or how good his intentions, stuff just keeps blowing up in his face, complicating his life. Surrounded by females of all species adds to his stress levels, as well as his libido.
I will definitely be reading the first 4 books in this series, as well as the ones to follow … there are a lot more adventures in store for Aaron, Michelle, etal!

This is one of my favorite vampire series. I love the way Travis writes all out and doesn't pull punches with his books.

We find Aaron and Michelle in the thick of things trying to hunt one of their own. He has created a new drug and Aaron's new master Vashi will not tolerate it. She is hard core when it comes to finding the vampire responsible and taking care of him. And now she brings Aaron along for the ride and what a ride. Of course Aaron goes nowhere without Michelle which makes for and even more gritty journey through the cold streets of Moscow. Aaron also has some changes coming his way and the new characters just add more spice.
So if you want a sexy, gritty and sometimes dirty look at the predators in this world then you need to read this series.

Travis keep them coming!!!! Can't wait to see what happens next!

This is the first book I've read from Travis, but it wont be the last, that's for sure. This is book 5 in the Nightlife Series, I would recommend reading the series in order, although starting at book 5 probably wasn't the best thing to do for me, I still understood roughly what was going on. Oh & I'll be making sure I read the first 4 books A.S.A.P!!

This book never slows down, from the steaming HOT beginning to the harsh reality at the end. Vampires, wolfs, fallen angels, Russian Mafia, gun fits, explosions.... what more can one want??? Once I started this book I couldn't put it down, I finished at 4am this morning, so have a slight book hangover today.

Thank you Mr. Luedke, I look forward to more of the series & any of your other work.

WOW! I loved this book, so much that I read it in one sitting. This is the first book of Travis Luedke's that I have read, I will be going and reading the rest in this series now. This book is action packed, dark and gritty, things I don't find often enough in books lately.
Aaron and Michelle are in Moscow working with Wolves, that don't really care for them, and Urvashi, a fallen angel. They need to get inside the compound of a very old vampire, and doing it will not be easy or clean.
I liked that the characters are not invincible, they can be hurt but heal. There are some smoking hot scenes in here as well.
I am a huge fan of Travis now and cannot wait to dive in to to rest of this series!

Really?? You gon' leave me hanging like that, Travis?? You play dirty. But Im pretty sure Michelle would like that, so...so do I. Lol Michelle is still my favorite vampire. Kinky and Deadly. I heart Michelle!! So much happened in this book and Im really just cheesing over it at the moment. Never once did I get lost. I kept thinking about what was going to happen next, like, when I was going to pick up my Kindle again and discover more twisted twists and turns??There were many. Then dark kinky sex just explodes everywhere. Ah, I love it!! Aaron is a lucky son of a bitch with all his hoes, aka Bloodslaves, around. Yea, I said it. Almost too many to count!! But it was fun. I want more because there just has to be more. Too much unsettled for me. And I want more of Michelle. <3

I received this book as an ARC for an honest review - I was looking for something new and different from what I usually read - and this did the trick. I do read mostly paranormal stuff so the vamps and weres were not new - but the approach to them was. This book was a very fast paced, sexually charged, adventure that I am still recovering from. I had never read a Travis Luedke book before and now I plan to read them all

This is a book I will be recommending to others for a long time to come although I will advise they start with the first book in the series - which I am about to go read :-)

I was given an Arc for an honest review. I had never read one of Travis Luedke books before And I did like this one. It is the continuing story of Aaron and Michelle, this time in Moscow. This book has it all, Vampires, werewolves,mafia, sex, drugs, crime and death!! Travis puts it all out there. It is a good romance with lots of steamy sex in it too. Now I need to go back and read the first 4 books in this series, even though this can be read as a Stand Alone book, I want to see what happened before this one came out. I recommend this book to anyone who likes the Paranormal.It is a great read.

This is a paranormal book like no other and I love it!! Travis Lueke has a unique way of bringing his characters to life. These vampires and their companions are like no others. The corruption, sex, violence and love in this book is fantastic. We are brought face to face with an all powerful corrupt vampire, Dimitri, who is pure evil. Michelle, Aaron and their band of fighters set out to stop him from distributing a drug he has created to make humans "blood slaves" to the vampires and the wolves want revenge for the killing of two of their pack.

This fast paced sexy adventure is one I recommend to anyone looking for a truly unique paranormal story.

I received an ARC for my review.

This is the first book that I have read from this author...and it will not be the last!!!

From the Hot beginning to the Hard Hitting end...this book never Lets up. Vampires, wolves, fallen angels, Russian Mafia...and corruption at the highest levels, it is gritty, and dark with hot erotic scenes through out. Won't spoil the story for anyone, but well worth the read...

Couldn't put this book down from the minute I started.

I am looking forward to more from Mr. Luedke, and from what I see won't be let down!!

Okay so I started this review three times because , holy shit, I can't find the right words to do it justice. This is dark, racey, sexually charged book that I couldn't put down. Aaron is a vampire I loved to hate , only because I wanted him to only love Katya, even though I knew it wasn't possible. With the four of them intertwined, Urvashi, Aaron, Michelle and Katya , you are in for a wild ride in and out of the bedroom. This is my first book by Travis Luedke and it definitly won't be my last. This is a must read, and if you don't like dark sensual beings, this book will change your mind.

I received this ARC from a unknown author(to me) and was blown away! This book is raw,,sexy and tender. Two Vampires have banned together with a werewolf pack during WW2 and are now chasing down a Russian Vampire who is developing a drug that copies vampire venom.This book has very sexy scenes with multiple partners ; Aaron and 4 bloodslaves plus 1 female vampire and 1 fallen angle. The battle scenes are so real I could almost hear the whine of bullets! I couldn't put this book down and now need to read his other books !!

Holy cow! Great series to follow if you live some kick ass vampires, werewolves! Aaron and Michelle left behind a large trail of carnage from NYC, Vegas and Paris, now in Moscow Russia to track down and eliminate Dimitri, an evil Vampire. Witness Aaron's struggle keeping his ladies happy and healthy; even with no intention to make or create more bloodslaves, he has a life changing situation unfolding everyday with maintaining them. His Master, a Fallen Angel, has an untold plan that keeps unfolding with trusts and turns. I can't wait to see where he goes next!

Nightlife Moscow is not the typical vampire going crazy blood thirsty book. The vampires in this book seem to have more class. Even with the adult scenes it was tastefully done and not as full of porn material.
I will say that this book kept my attention throughout and I wanted to read another book after this one finished. That is why I am giving this a 5/5.

I'm so glad that I received an ARC copy of this book, I may have never discovered this amazing author otherwise. I must now work on reading other books of his. This book kept my attention from beginning to end. It was full of excitement, edginess, mystery and sweet emotion with plenty of hotness as well. And the ending was phenomenal!!
