Conflicted here. Eye rolls and stereotypical in many ways...

It’s gonna be a little hard to explain my thoughts surrounding this book so I’ll give it my best.

From the beginning several chapters made it seem like this book is a part of a series. I felt like I was supposed to know the characters already but I went back, looked and this is a standalone story. So it was a little tough to get into the book.

It took me probably the first quarter of the book to feel my way through but t

It’s been a very long time since I have read anything by Alyssa Day, but I remember really enjoying her Paranormal Romance books in the past, so I thought that I would give this new series a shot. BANE’S CHOICE is book one in the Vampire Motorcycle Club. And obviously, the series title totally caught my attention. But I’m afraid that I may have had some high expectations because I was a little disappointed in this book.

It’s definitely not a terrible book by any means, but I did feel like th

DNF At 55%

I didn't want this to end up as a DNF but I just can't power through this book anymore. The overall concept for the world the author built was very interesting and did keep me asking questions. I liked that it was a motorcycle club with vampires. I liked the found family aspect to it all. This actually reminded me of J. R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood books (which I really enjoy!).

What I wasn't captivated by were Bane and Ryan and they were the main characters. It really says someth

I have been thoroughly entertained by this authors Warriors of Poseidon series so was very excited to read this book. The idea of a motorcycle club in romance isn't unique but making that club a mixture of both Vampires and Humans was to me very different. Yes its a paranormal romance but there's also the fact that women are being murdered and it looks as if Bane himself is the reason for it !
Look I'm going to be brutal and say I really didn't like Bane. From the start he's this

When I read that Bane's Choice was "Sons of Anarchy meets True Blood in this sexy new series that is sure to captivate readers everywhere" I was on board!! A vampire MC was very appealing!

The book started slow for me. I just couldn't seem to get into it right away. However, it eventually picked up and I was more interested. I totally got a little bit of a Sookie Stackhouse vibe when it came to the heroine of Bane's Choice, Ryan. She has a little something "extra". But, there are lots of co

Bane’s Choice is book one in the new series: Vampire Motorcycle Club by Alyssa Day. The story focuses on Bane a centuries old vampire and Doctor Ryan St. Cloud. Bane is the quintessential, arrogant male who at the beginning of the story comes across as really angry and in need of revenge. Being part of a MC also means that he has a lot of people to look after but at times he can come across quite heartless as he doesn’t really care about who dies in his club except a few close ‘friends’.

I have to admit that in the last few years I haven't been into vampire romances as much as I was before. Not sure why they just don't call me like they used to. I'm sure that I'll get back to them big again. You know the saying 'what goes around, comes around' and that's so true.

But since it was Alyssa Day who wrote it and I've loved her other stuff I knew I had to try it and I'm glad I did. It was written with Day

(ARC provided by NetGalley. Opinions are my own.)

This is a tough one to review. The story begins with some decent action, which is always good. But it was also confusing. Bane was a vampire and had magic and could fly but the other vampires did not have these traits. It wasn't until much later that some casual references are thrown in about different magical skills. Maybe I'm being too picky with the world building, or lack thereof. Basically there are vampires, werewolves, warlocks, necromancer

Warriors of Poseidon by Alyssa Day is one of my all time favorite series. So when I saw that she was writing a brand new series, I jumped at the chance to read an early copy. Plus Vampire Motorcycle Club is an eye catching series title.

Although it wasn't exactly what I was expecting. I have read plenty of motorcycle club books and this is not that. Is there a motorcycle club? Yes. But it is nothing like a "typical" MC. Bane is the head of the club. He is a vampire that has been alive for 300 pl

Given my recent deep dive into her Tiger's Eye Mystery series, I wanted to read some of her backlist. Thanks to long library holds, I instead chose the first book of her new Vampire Motorcycle Club series. I enjoyed the story. A vampire, Bane - head of a vampire motorcycle club - raids a hospital to save/change a badly injured human who once saved his life. There he meets a doctor, Ryan St. Cloud, who is more than she seems. If the book had stayed on this path, I could have loved it. Yet, there' ...more

On top of that, how does she resist his powers, and why does she glow?

Bane's Choice was a really fun read! I don't normally read paranormal romance, bug I am so glad I picked up this book.

Bane, his fellow vampire family and friends, and his Vampire Motorcycle Club make their home in Savannah, Georgia. They aren't the only supernatural beings there either. They are all threatened when the mysterious Chamber sends necromancers to town.

I enjoyed the mystery and action element to the story just as much as the romance between Bane and Ryan. She is a doctor who seems t

Thank you, Alyssa Day! This is the sexy vampire fantasy novel I’ve been missing. I have stopped reading some well known vampire series because I just couldn’t take the alpha never learning to give a little with his true love or there being so much sex and barely any story. Day has found the perfect balance of an alpha not locking his love up so no one hurts them (although he wants to) and lots of great storylines to go with the steamy scenes.

And to go along with the great character development,

This story is exactly what I expected from Alyssa. And if you like her Poseidon series, you will like this one. Strong friendships, family and hot romance. This story is about Bane, a Vampire who leads a Motorcycle gang who are mostly vampires and their fight, along with other supernatural groups, against evil. Dr. Ryan St. Cloud (female) is the love interest. She is a strong and smart woman. I enjoyed the action and characters a lot.

I started out as a fan of Alyssa Day’s Warriors of Poseidon series—the books are all carefully lined up on my keeper shelf in my office—and she’s definitely hooked me with this new series: BANE’S CHOICE. Bane is a vampire like no other, 300 years old, he’s forgotten what it’s like to feel human, in fact, to feel anything at all. Yet he cares for people without being truly aware of his need to do good. When he ends up colliding with a female doctor who stands up to him without fear, he’s not quit ...more

This story starts out with a bang and captures the reader. I really enjoyed the authors take on vampires and the cross over to MC clubs. While I was a bit taken aback at the beginning as the story just jumps you right into the action, it did level out and become an interesting and fun read. I liked the dynamics of the different supernatural creatures and how the author took everyday life and warped it just a bit to including the character in this story. There is extraordinarily little world buil ...more

When nasty and dangerous death magic infiltrates his territory in South Caroline, Bane and his crew bring forces together to combat the enemy. He wasn't counting on a mouthy doctor who is immune to the thralls he and his vamps toss her way.

3.50 stars rounded up because of the many times I laughed out loud while reading.

Okay, call me crazy. But with a series named Vampire Motorcycle Club I was expecting more of a Paranormal MC Romance. You know, a story that actually revolved around a motorcycle club. But no, this was your run of the mill vampire romance.

Ancient vampire who lost his humanity hundred of years ago, yet protects his "family" and the innocent, suddenly finds himself having feelings for the beautiful woman who steps

He is one of the oldest of the vampires and is mostly cold and unfeeling. Until a doctor is thrust into his path that frustrates him but also makes him feel.

For a first time read by Alyssa Day, I enjoyed this one. There were a few things here and there that kept me from loving it but found it to be a rather fun read. The synopsis pulled me instantly and I was rather interested when it came down to the vampire mc romance aspect.

I've read a handful of MC romances and the scale of what happens in each has been all over the place. And I'd say that Bane's Choice falls on the tamer side of MC, which I don't really have a problem with at all.

I've totally been sucked into this new world. I haven't read anything by thia author before so I had no preconceived ideas based on previous work.

Although there is an MC mentioned, it actually takes a back seat as such, It's certainly not an "MC" in the usual sense. Although there is "criminality" afoot, it's much more of the on the Knight on Shining bike type than Sons of Anarchy in my opinion.

Ryan just thinks she's a plain old doctor. But there is something very different to Ryan. When she com

Alyssa Day builds an interesting world of supernatural creatures and magic. When warlocks start settling in to Savannah Georgia, Bane and his Vampire Motorcycle Club strike back. Bane is cold, dangerous, and full of rage. Ready to hunt down and kill any invaders in his territory. The Chamber is a cult of blood magic, and more dangerous than even Bane can handle. So, right from the beginning there is quite a bit of blood, violence, and swearing. Despite Bane’s refusal to r
