Even if I was in a paranormal romance mood big time when I read this, I still wasn’t in the mood to being crowded by sex scenes right off the bat. Luscious cravings lives up to its name with a sexual dream in the first chapter, and continuing sexual episodes of some kind almost every chapter thereafter. Still, I could skim and ignore it since there was an actual plot at the same time, plenty at stake, tense motions, and a hurried pace.

It opens with the heroine still reeling from a traumatic even

Book #2 of 3
This was a silly book that had This Reader questioning the integrity of the author. It was unrealistic to write about a heroin that wore two hairpins that doubled as vampire killing weapons. Geeze! Those pins DO NOT stay in your hair for the activities described in this book. Also, I was so tired of the female heroin constantly downing the man she supposedly loved because he was a vampire. She kills vampires and loves a vampire, but doesn't want to love him because he's a vampire. (e

Aaaaaand nope! I didn't know it was possible but the writing in this book was even worse than the last. More she loves him but doesn't want to drivel. I was willing to suffer through that to hopefully find a plot. Then she has sex with a total stranger apparently without protection. While I am all for the right to give yourself to who you want without judgment.... Just because you can doesn't mean you should and especially without a condom. Dnf

Why did I read these books? Why did a waste a whole weekend on them? I just don't know but maybe I can save someone else from making the same mistake. These books are awful and pointless!

I really had to force myself to keep reading this at first. It was terrible. I already knew the writing wasn't great from the first book, but it was much harder to read this time around. There were a few instances of good imagery once again, but overall there was nothing to recommend the writing. I didn't find the plot particularly interesting either.

The worst part of this book was in the beginning when Candace walks into a diner to eat, meets a random man, has a brief and flirty conversation wi
The first book in this series was pretty terrible. It took me a long time to come around to reading this next volume, "Luscious Craving". Since I bought the entire trilogy at once, I knew eventually I would read on. I'm kind of glad that I did. This book is considerably better then its predassessor. Candace Steele is a very unlikeable heroine. She doesn't have a great personality at all and in this book she was such a tramp! I'm no prude but Candace went to and from two men in this book in a way ...more

his is the second book with Candace Steele vampire hunter - in the last book she fell in love with a vampire Ash Donahue. She contiues to deny her love for Ash in this store though she does call on him because she needs his help.

She still works for the Scheherazade casino posing as a cocktail waitress but she is actually there with security keeping vampires at bay. She meets Michael Pressman who is at the casino taking part in a poker game when she finds out there is to be a con on New Years Eve

This is the second in a series, and I didn't read the first one. But I think even if I had it wouldn't change my opinion of this one. There was just enough plot to string together the ass kicking and sex scenes. I didn't find myself caring about the female lead as much as I should have, though. She seemed kind of bull-headed and overly independant to me, a character trait I am really tired of reading about. Makes me want to slap her. However, it was kind of a fun book, had some decent sex scenes ...more

A really good book. Hot. Sexy. Intriguing. It leaves the reader extremely curious as to what will happen to Candace and Ash's love story.

The story managed to show that sometimes love has no happy endings and that love is the very obstacle that clouds a person's judgement of right and wrong.

Warning!!!! If you like happy endings than this series is not for you. The books are great, but you'll want to throw all of them in the garbage after the last page in the last book. Just giving you a heads up (in advance)...your welcome!

Book 2 was just as good as the 1st book. Candace is a strong determined women who knows what she doesn't want and that's Ash her Vampire lover. If only she knew what she does want. Lopking forward to the 3rd book Eternal Hunger. 4/5

I was hoping that the second book would have been a lot more interesting than the first. It's not a bad read, but if the 3rd book doesn't pick up some more, I won't read anymore in this series.

not as great as the first, but I'd still read more. I like books that are set in Vegas even if they take artistic freedom with some things
