I yearn for the one who will complete me; the one I can protect, love, honor and cherish for all time.

Start your review of Twice Shy (Javier Coven #2)
Milo has had a hard life. Kicked out of his home for being gay, he puts his faith in someone who only has ill intentions towards him. He's then stuck with no way out. When Bastian comes across Milo during an altercation, he knows that Milo is his. He doesn't hold Milo's past against him and he works to make his life better.

I liked this one better than the first. It was a sweet hurt-comfort book. It was a little more dark in the beginning than I was expecting from this author. Not necessarily a

An amazing series

I am totally loving this series. The humor the author incorporates into the story had me laughing out loud. The hot sex scenes and toothache sweet love this books has gives you all the feels along with the thrills.

This had the nerve to be worst than the first one. The lack of character development. Even with insta-love, there should be some character development.

I was hoping with the second one there was be some sort of growth in the writing. I was quite wrong.

It is a quick read. Instant love with the vampire thing. As most are. Nothing new in this book. It was wham they met, instant love, then danger and certain death, then love conquers all.

Literary whiplash

I'll start by saying I only bothered with this book, thinking I'd get more of Sam, since he was the only character I liked in the first book. Let's just say, I don't know where my Sam went.

Strike one. The sex scenes are icky, a little gross, definitely raunchy, and what's worse, the author has a foot fetish. Nope, no way can you trust someone who likes to suck on toes. That's disgusting.

Strike two. The Spanish. For the love of carne asada, Google translate is not where you

Stronger men and lots of humor

Milo isn't a cry baby so that right there was a big improvement. He is more of a man with a terrible life but fate was on his side when Bastian saves him. Again the love part is easy but it's about the trust and the whole truth on top of Milo's horrible life that threatens the furure. Again the dynamic within these men is really funny, so that made for a better read.

The major problem with this book is that it is too short on story. It was way too much super sugary insta-love and what conflict there was in the story was resolved quickly. I dont mind a bit of insta-love, but this was just way too over the top. Still, I did like most of the characters. Overall, I did enjoy parts of the book and I am looking forward to reading Sams story next.

Not as good as the first book but it wasnt all bad! Major instalove and while thats not a huge problem, two weeks is really short. Im sooo looking forward to reading the last book in the series, Twice Bitten which is Sams story! Im totally not surprised that itll take two men to tame Sam.
Recommended and happy reading.

I am in love with this series

I read book one and two back to back. I love these vampires. Just enough mating and drama. I agree with another reviewer this is fresh that it don't pull the mains apart through most the book. I can't wait for book 3 I am hoping it's Sam's book cause that boy cracks me up.

Bastian finding his Soulmate is a must read. The first book in this series was fantastic introducing Vampiers. Jayda has it all down pat. The stories just flow plus the Sex is Steamy and Hot.

Just as good as book one in the Javier Coven series .

Book one was so good I didn't think you could match it . You surpassed it . I can't wait till Sam's story comes out . It will be very interesting I'm sure.

Feels rushed

Not as engaging as the first book, the dynamic feels really rushed and I'd like it if we could explore the villains more just like in the first book..

I live in rural Ohio with my husband and two sons who drive me nuts, but I love them with all my heart. I enjoy reading and writing romance of all types, but gay romance is my forte and favorite! Twice the sexy men? Yes, please! My books tend to be low angst because it hurts my heart, but they do contain lots of heartfelt moments, steamy scenes and a healthy dose of humor. Thank you to everyone ...more
