The Nightlife in New York By Travis Luedke

Reviewed by Rachel

THE NIGHTLIFE IN NEW YORK. I Love a vampire book and was looking forward to starting this series, and they did not disappoint!

The book starts by meeting Aaron who was working in a restaurant, one night after his shift had finished his life changed for ever when he helped a beautiful blonde women called Michelle. Michelle turns out to be  a glamorous  French vampire who saves Aarons life when she shares her blood, making  her his master.

Their story is a fast passed with a good plot and I was hooked from the start, though when I first met Michelle it took me a while to get her right in my head but has the book went on I grew to like the character.

I Loved how Aaron always defends Michelle and falls in love with her even though she was a right cow to him at times! Also it was good to see Aaron transformed into the stronger of the couple.

Violence, night clubs, corrupt cops, and  loaded with erotic action,its got it all –  but one part in the book that gave me a little flinch moment was the revenge sex part,  touch brutal for me 😉

Cannot wait to see what happens in Las Vegas!



Nicola’s Review

Ever felt like you were in the wrong place at the wrong time but it turned out to be the best experiance of your life? that’s how Aaron Pilan’s life started our, wrong place, wrong time. until he ‘woke up’ that is.

After witnessing something he can only discribe a surreal he is faced with the fact that the surreal is in fact real and he is now a vampire! Not those fake, don’t eat from humans and sparkle ones but a hot, seductive blodd sucker with the ability to read minds and cause body trembling orgasams as he ‘feeds’.

Enjoy this fast paced story as Aaron learns how to deal with his new life as a vampire and the lust for blood while trying to deal with his feelings for the one who tuened him, Michelle. Did she turn him so she could keep him for herself or was the guilt of getting him shot too mush for her?

This book had me hooked from the start and i spent many late nights telling myself ‘just 1 more page’. I loved how the love story between Aaron and Michelle developed and their need for each other. Some of the sex scenes were a bit more explicit than im used to but that didn’t put me off the books.



The Nightlife in Vegas By Travis Luedke

Reviewed by Rachel

THE NIGHTLIFE: LAS VEGAS picks up where the first book finished.

This book was much faster paced, darker with more violence, sex, some jello fighting and lots of OMG moments I found it difficult to put down!

Aaron and Michelle gamble away in Las Vegas, until they win from the wrong guy which leads them into trouble. Aaron also meets a woman, Ana, who he makes  his bloodslave/ pet.

At first I didn’t see the need for Ana as I missed Aarons softer side towards Michelle, but as the story unfolded Ana did grow on me but at times she did grate on me by being so winey and needy.

Aaron was the predator within much more in this book, and looking forward too see how he develops in the next book (Paris)

Really do not want to give to much way! Despite the gripping plot, the constant drug induced sex scenes started to wear thin on me . It is a good book don’t get me wrong, I would recommend this book to any one who likes a bit of fast paced vampire action with lots of sex, drugs cartels, gambling, threesomes, its got it all.

Straight on the blood slave !



Nicola’s Review

As the title suggest’s Aaron and Michelle have feld to the bright lights of Las Vegas. A very fitting place for 2 vampires, i mean who is up during the day in Vegas?!

This book seemed to be more action paked than the last book (which i liked) and it saw Aaron take to his vampire role very well. Aaron also brings us a new charater, Ana. Now i didn’t see the need for her but as i go into the book im glad she came into it as it shows these two can care for someone who isn’t of their kind. It also brought the kind and caring side out of Aaron that i had begun to miss. 

This book didn’t disapoint and i was gutted when it ended, If The Nightlife: Paris is like these other 2 books then the author, Travis, is onto a winner!



Blood slave By Travis Luedke

Reviewed by Rachel


From the start I was taken with Hopes’ story, the pages whizzed pasted as couldn’t put the book down!

Hope was sold by her Father into a Columbian sex slave ring at the age of 14, which was the start of her life being pimped out.

It all changed one night when Lia entered her life while working as an escort only Lia was a hard core vampire and Hope was not going to plan.

Which is when Hope was taken to meet Enrique Lias’ master ……..Hope was allowed to live but only as a blood slave, although Enrique treats Hope like a princess at times and horrid at others she was taken into the family but her past soon catches up with her and the story turns again.

I really don’t want to ruin the book for you, but it is written so well and you really get a feel for Hope and what she is thinking and feeling, I think this is why I was enjoyed her character and the book so much.

I loved this book. A violent, gritty, erotic and somewhat sad story and must read.


Nicola’s Review

This is a stand alone book and has nothing to do with the first 2 books but im sooo glad i read it! I have even changed my golden apple rating 🙂

The story is about Hope and her heart wrenching story of survival.Forced to join the sex industery at the young age of 14, she now know’s no different so after a night of passion with Lia, Hope’s life changes for the worse/better pending on how you see it. As lia tries to erase Hope’s mind of the nights wild antic’s she relises this wont work on hope and in a panic decides to let her ‘Master’ deal with it. Hope is taken to Enrique’s apartment where Lia wishes for things to be ‘del’t with but to her surprise Enrique makes Hope his bloodslave. I loved the ending of this book (even had a tear in my eye)

This story has more plot twists than a roll-a-coaster, Just when you think you have this books sussed BOOM another twist.

Its a good read but be warned there is a couple of brutal sex scenes.
