My Rating: 2.5 Stars
Halo is a hunter, one of the best. He lives life fast, loose and with few, if any rules. Love ‘em, feed from them and leave ‘em, no strings and he is gone. Felice is a strong and warm- hearted woman who has chosen poorly in love. They are strangers, but when both are captured and forced to be together, both Hao and Felice play a dangerous game of attraction under the scrutiny of the unseen enemy. The plan was to use Felice to poison Halo with tainted energy, will he fall to t

I've been a fan of this authors work since I picked up Jacob about five years ago and her lyrical prose simply enchanted me. The world building, the creativity and imagination to craft an overall plot that would connect numerous books and more than one series still if I think about it blows my mind. Yet I'm like many who have occasionally been dissatisfied with certain books as they haven't lived up to the glorious offerings of previous work. I read the first in this series Thirst and much as I ...more

Wow… this was a mess. I’m sorry to have to say that. I really am but… wow. I had to FORCE myself to finish this one. I probably should have just called it and relegated this to the DNF list but I rallied and kept going to the bitter end. I think perhaps there were some cool concepts that could have been shaped into something good. However, Hunger just never comes together into anything interesting.

Halo lives his life full tilt with a ton of women in his wake. When he is captured he is forced to share his captivity with Felice, a person who has made some really bad love connections.

Their captors want to poison Halo with “tainted” energy from Felice so that is why they are imprisoned naked together. Damaged souls, imprisoned and naked…can it get any worse?

Hunger has a great premise but after reading this, the second book in this series, I’m not thinking this series is for me. Like I said t

This storyline has so much potential. I love the idea of energy vampires and their origin, but I felt that the story fell short in delivering in the chemistry between the protagonists.
The story was okay but predictable.
I'm sad because I really enjoyed this author's previous work, but unfortunately, this book just didn't connect with me.

So... Hmm, where to start? This one was okay. I have read books by this author that I really liked, then some that I kept waiting for the action to start. This one happened to fall in the second category.

i like the idea. The way the story is it is very dependent on dialogue to keep things going, and sex too. The dialogue to me would have been okay for a story where it wasn't the only thing keeping the story going, but here I feel it needed to be more complex and consistent to the characters. It

Hunger is the second book in the newest vampire series by Frank. Now every book I  have read from this author has been pretty wonderful, and Hunger was no different, I absolutely fell in love with this book and these "Energy vampires". In Hunger we have a story where both our hero and our heroine wake up having been drugged, kidnapped and naked and forced in the same room together. Halo, our hero of the story, is one of the strongest of

It has been a while since I read the last book by Jacquelyn Frank, but still she is one of those authors where after the first few pages you feel like coming home. I was really happy to receive “Hunger” the latest book in the Energy Vampire series for review. It only took me a day and half the night #snicker and I was already done with it. As the Blurb is not yet public it seems my review will be not to deep into the plot.

The referencing of "her jiggly bits" the author kept doing was hella annoying.

Additionally, I really could not fathom why he was "rendering rifles useless" by bending the nozzles and flinging them away instead of just using the guns on his attackers. Fistfights are for movies and mostly as a fight scene affectation. I'm not sure why the book needed one.

Also is Jacquelyn Frank using a ghost writer? Her books have lost a lot of their depth, the deft hand with language and even the dialogue is su

Felice finds herself in a similar situation. But she is human. She is poisoned and given to Halo to feed off of.

I really didn't care much for the first book in this series, but I wanted to keep giving it a try because some of my absolute favorite books are by this author. But so are some of my least favorite...and this falls into that category. I was bored out of my mind and I can't tell you how many times I rolled my eyes or wanted to bang my head against a wall. So many things kept being repeated and nothing happens !

I did not like Felice at all. She was annoying as hell, a brat, and preachy as fuck.

I have read from Jacquelyn Frank before, her NightWalkers Series is personally one of my favorites! But Hunger fell a bit flat for me personally. Their was no connection between Halo and Felice, which was sadly disappointing, because the storyline was brilliant.

Halo is a Vampire Hunter, best in the business until the HUNTER becomes the HUNTED. He is trapped and must find a way out before its too late. But meets a female along the way that is his undoing.... Felice. This human female has no idea

Thank you Netgalley for giving me this novel in exchange for an honest review.

This is series is an interesting take on vampires, it has all the brooding, sexiness of blood sucking vamp novels but these are energy vamps. Just as deadly but with a twist.

I'm enjoying this world and this novel was...good...I liked the characters overall and the storyline was fresh. That being said it was slow. Too much time in the "room" and a bit too much angst from the hero for me. I did like the strength the he

It took me nearly 2 weeks to read this book. This is the second book of the Energy Vampire series. I had trouble getting through the first book. I wanted to give the series a decent chance. I just can't seem to get into aliens that were hit by lightening as they crash landed and are now e-vamps that have to suck the energy from humans by biting the back of the neck. Nope, doesn't do it for me.

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre:  Romance, Sci-fi and fantasy. 

I really wanted to like this, I love the vampire romance genre wasn't to be. 

I found it really dragged, with the first half covering Halo and Felice in captivity. Just the two of them talking, arguing, bickering with occasional voice overs from the captors, that's all it was. Halo wants to know why he and Felice were taken, thinks he can guess at who's behind i
This is the second book in The Energy Vampire series. I was not as invested in this book as I was in book one. I am disappointed because I was so looking forward to this second book.

I have to say I liked the idea of story, but it dragged in spots with redundant information repeated throughout. I feel the book could have been shorter without all repeats. I also felt that the first half of the book needed more action. There was a lot of dialog and I had a hard time staying engaged. I did enjoy the

Super hot vampires! Hooks you in right away as the author sets the tone for the book. This one is even better than the first in the Energy Vampires series. Halo may just be my new favorite vampire. He gives off a sexy vibe that females can't resist. When he meets Felice, he has protective feelings for her. I love this new world Ms. Frank has created. Scorching paranormal romance is on display here and readers will love this.

Although I haven't read book one, Thirst, I had little trouble understanding this book. I did, however, struggle with the pace of the story.

Halo is a hunter who works for the energy vampires, he's a loner and walks a fine line of rebellion in his decadent lifestyle. One evening he goes to his usual nightspot, but awakens in a sparsely furnished room with no clothing and no memory of how he got there. On the tv is a naked woman in an identical room. He watches as the woman is drugged, then he is

It was just ok. My first love will always be vampires. I really liked the idea behind these vampires and well more like aliens than vampires but still considered vampires. The term used for them was eye roll worthy to me tho (e-vamp) I did like the energy vampires idea just not the kinda silly name.
Something else that did not work for me at all was the characters, neither Halo nor Felice were likable to me. Halo was too much of a jerk

I've read a couple of books of this author and she was always one of my favourites. However, this book felt disappointingly lacking.

This book is about Halo and Felice. Halo is an energy vampire, a hunter who fights vampires that live off of tainted energy by drinking from addicts, for a high. They are dangerous as they risk exposing the vampire nation on the chase for the next high.
Felice is on the run from her ex.
Both seem to have nothing in common when they find themselves naked in a room,

Hunger is the second novel in Jacquelyn Frank's Energy Vampires series. I read and gave the first novel in the series, Thirst, a 5-star rating and was looking forward to reading this one, but sadly, it simply wasn't as good a read as I had hoped, it had too many flaws, and I can only give it 3 stars.

In Hunger, Halo, an energy vampire, heavy drinker and self-admitted womanizer, wakes up alone in a cell of a room without a way out. He's naked, has clearly been drugged, is more than a bit groggy, a

There are so many problems with this story. Felice has just got out of a abusive relationship, and it is later revealed that she was basically hiding from the man since he turned into a stalker. So her level of fear and paranoia after waking up naked in a prison was way to low. Then she is moved into the same room as the man, and drugged, all while being watched but somehow has no control over her libido? To the point where she has unprotected sex? Seriously? Halo is a douche. He’s good at his j ...more

This is the 2nd book in the series, but I didn't feel like Thirst had to be read before this one. However, there is more backstory on the vampires themselves in the first book. The majority of this book took place in a small space. It was interesting and intriguing. The chemistry between Halo and Felice was intense. He was a cocky bastard and he didn't care if she called him out on it. Under normal circumstances, Felice would never have given Halo a chance after he opened his mouth. But with thi ...more

Ok, I have to start out by saying, that I enjoyed this book quite a bit more than the first one in the series. I was SO excited to read Halo's story, as he was a character that really intrigued me in the first book and made me hunger to know more about him.

The way this story started out with Halo and Felice both wondering, along with myself, how they got where they are and precisely why they are there. I think that two naked strangers locked in a sealed room together makes for a curious and com

This series is filled with unexpected twists and turns and this particular book really set the tone from page 1. Who knew a book that started like a “Saw” installment could end up being so steamy and romantic?

We join Halo in an unfamiliar place, with no recollection of how he ended up there. He’s been stripped and confined to a nondescript room with nothing but video footage of another captive to entertain him. The other captive, Felice, is a human and unexposed to his e-vamp world but all of th
