It's a sultry July night, and Wild Bill is content. It's deliciously warm outside, the fireworks are about to start, a whole pint of freshly-tapped blood is on the menu, and his boyfriend hasn't murdered anyone in months. Too bad Bill's contentment isn't shared by Michael, who's tired of his own lack of experience. He hints that a new lover in their bed might broaden his h ...more

Explosives, Threesomes, and Confessions...
Mikey and me, we were living in our own little vacuum of blood and sex and vampire love.
Well, book six in the Channeling Morpheus series certainly started out with a bang - that is to say, a fourth of July fireworks display and a bit of public sex...

Bill holds the POV of this story and he's become a little more introspective as the series continues. He really is a fabulous character, and it's always a pleasure to get into his brain.

Hit it Bradley Cooper! Yeah, throw this crap away!


How can it go from the best of the series (previous book) to this crap?!

This was the worst threesome I have ever read, and that's saying a lot coming from me. I usually like them if they are well done. This.was.not! I have now painfully discovered that threesomes can be a hit or miss. This definitely was a miss. Gah! It came so suddenly, it was awkward and...and... Gah! I shiver to shake the bad feeling it left me with.

Okay, the (view spoiler) in this, the 6th novella in the series, does make sense to me. After all, that's the way the series started. It's interesting to see how Michael and Wild Bill have changed as individuals and a couple. It's well done.

Still...



I DON'T FUCKING LIKE IT. It's not my favorite thing is any book and it makes me grumpy in general. I would've skimmed it but I was afraid of missing important character development. I kinda resent it for that. On the other ha

Yes, Brazen shed light on the regret and guilt Wild Bill feels during his "confession" - and don't get me wrong, that was totally fascinating.

But Brazen also had Wild Bill & Mikey taking part in a threeseome.

3.5 Stars

I can kinda see the point of what happens here - doesn't mean I like it. I am somewhat mollified because for the guys, it made them realize that they don't need anyone else but each other. Still...

Things are a-changing, especially as Michael reconsiders his mission in life, as well as his ever evolving new chemical makeup.

Love Bill's vulerability here as well… "I was a giant turning fork, and he was the note that had just bent up to meet my quivering harmonic."

Loved this one, too! I was really nervous about the ménage scene, but I was really happy to see that Wild Bill was probably even more nervous than me. It was a lot different than the one in the first book and also reveals so much about their relationship and how they both have changed. Plus it was hot! Poor Damien was so terrified, I was worried that Wild Bill was going to vamp-out on him for doing what he did.

Need more Wild Bill and Mikey NOW!

This first book of the Sweet Oblivion series is the continuation of the Channeling Morpheus series: there are the same main characters, the vampire Wild Bill and the human Goth Michael, and they're still traveling the country in their van. They are also on a mission to educate people and vampires on how to prevent the transmission of vampirism.

In this book Wild Bill is the narrator and he is really Michael-smitten. The way he looks at him shows how much he is in love with Michael, he is so taken

*Contains Spoilers for anyone who hasn’t read the previous books in the Channeling Morpheus series*

Brazen is the sixth story in the series (previously the first in the Sweet Oblivion series) and we start the story on the 4th of July at a backwoods town in Missouri at a fireworks show. Michael and Bill have had some shocks in the first half of the series, most importantly to this story, that Michael is indeed changing, though not into a vampire. He’s form

I absolutely love the alternating point of views in this series. I think it has played a huge part in my connecting with these characters. I really can't decide who I like hearing from more. First I think it is Wild Bill, then I read Michael and feel the same about him.

This time, we hear from Wild Bill. I love how their relationship continues to grow and evolve with each installment. Both of them also continue to make discoveries about themselves and their issues - Bill with his guilt and unhapi

Michael is trying to figure out what is happening in his relationship with Bill and within himself. Bill is trying to keep Michael safe and happy. I really felt for Bill in this one - he's so into Michael that he's willing to adjust his own preferences to make it work for Michael. But Michael is also struggling with a situation he never expected to be in.

I warned you, didn't I? I'm tearing through this series. You'll see, though, when you read it. Once you get started, they're impossible to put down. At least for me. Jordan Castillo Price knows her way around the gritty, the dark, the things that go bump in the night. She never pretties anything up. She leaves it just as it should be. Real. No holds barred.

It's July now and Michael has convinced Wild Bill that it's safer for him to take blood from donors via phlebotomy. One great thing about tha

I shouldn't have worried before starting this. It worked. Our tortured hero is still very much tortured and still smoking, no worries. (view spoiler)

My thoughts about it:
1) nice menage scene
2) still enjoying Mike and Wild Bill
3) still wish there are more plot and less sex

yes shoot me people... I know, it's an erotic short story series BUT I really wish more plot because (example) 40 or the 50 pages are the sex scene, and not plot development.

I can't take stars because of it. It's a erotic story, so obviously I KNOW there should be sex... but (again, sorry the repetition) even knowing it's erotic I was hoping it would have more plot.

Man, these two are KILLING me! I want them to be happy so badly! As much as I've ever wished for a fictional character to be happy, I wish it for these two, but they seem just determined to not let themselves get there. And this is the first time I've wondered if at least one of them won't let the other be happy either.

So, (view spoiler) I have a confession: (and this may be letting my nerd-flag fly a little too freely, but whatevs) in my head, Wild Bill

Sweet Oblivion is the new continuing series in the adventures of goth boy Michael and his vampire lover Wild Bill. At the beginning of this relationship, Michael was the pursuer and Wild Bill the fugitive man: Michael young and naive was fascinated by Wild Bill, a vampire not so old for vampire standards, but old enough to hold a fascination on barely legal Michael. But Wild Bill knew that Michael was not the daring man he wanted to project, Michael was almost a child playing with his parents dr ...more

Brazen is the first book in the Sweet Oblivion series, which in turn is a continuation of the Channeling Morpheus series: a collection of erotic horror stories starring a hot vampire who's much sweeter than he acts and a boy in eye liner who's much tougher than he looks.

We got another Wild Bill POV with this story and boy: do I love him! His cynicism and bluntness are a riot, his dry observations are dead on and hilarious. But what I like most about reading in Bill's POV is that we get to see j

Still loving Vampire Bill's Wild Ride...Oh yeah...Michael and Bill are still so hot together it melts you from the insides, too hot, too good, too much...I'm not in the threesomes usually...BUT HOLY HELL!!

I love the stories from Bill's POV best, I love how he loves Michael and that vulnerability that comes out just slays me...and seeing Michael through Bill's eyes...*sighs* Takes my breath away.

Michael is dangerously close to doing something to break Bill's heart...scary thought, still gonna rea

Okay, in general I avoid vampire stories. Not because I don't think they're hot, but because I rarely find one that is well written enough for me to give up reality. This was just incredible. Bill is a snarky, sweet vampire and his boyfriend Michael is beyond lovable. It's laugh out loud funny in places, incredibly hot and oddly sweet. Needless to say, I'm going back and starting at the beginning of the series with Payback

This is not my favorite of the Wild Bill and Michael stories. Not sure why really - except that I thought that whole Damian thing was just a bit distracting. I didn't get the motivation of Michael asking for a threesome. I love Wild Bill's voice in these stories - he's world-weary and snarky and obviously over the moon for Michael since he's basically willing to do whatever Michael asks for to keep him happy. I'll be interested to see what happens in the next installment.

"It's deliciously warm outside, the fireworks are about to start, a whole pint of freshly-tapped blood is on the menu, and his boyfriend hasn't murdered anyone in months." Looks like I'll have to start a new series. Who could resist that little tidbit?

This is not my favorite. I enjoyed some part of it but there was something that didn’t allowed me to like it as the previous books in the series.

I think it the issue might be I felt like the plot wasn’t going anywhere. Other than a really hot hookup there wasn’t much going on here. Sure the ending made it up because, at least for me, it was very intriguing, but in general I lost interest in the story very fast, although not in the whole series, I will keep reading the next ones.
