M/M Vampire Love
*Book source ~ A review copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.
Kicked out of his home by his parents for being gay Tamir Sadin has survived selling his body on the streets. Deciding it would be better if he were dead he goes to the top of a building and begins cutting his arms in the hopes of bleeding out. However, drawn to the scent of blood, Vidar Gentson happens upon Tamir and saves him. Stopping the blood loss and taking him to his home, Vidar slowly seduces Tamir without telling him what his true nature is. How long will it be before their cozy little bubble collapses?
A great vampire m/m love story. Tamir is gutsy at heart especially when he has someone to appreciate him and not run him down for being gay. While Vidar is older, stronger and scary to the employees of his home, Tamir isn’t afraid of him. In fact, he stands right up to him, something Vidar isn’t used to and yet he finds himself allowing it from Tamir. They spend months getting to know each other and falling in love and then disaster strikes. The whole situation they find themselves in is far-fetched in my opinion which is why I didn’t give this book a higher rating. All-in-all though if you want to read about vampire m/m love then this is a great way to pass the time.

This is an intensely provocative & evocative novel. It makes you think, wonder, and feel. Avario combines the realities of stereotypes with the wonder of the paranormal in its darkest sense. His descriptions paint a dark picture to the world, while giving a sense of a light at the end of the tunnel.
I found myself rooting for the characters. They were living and struggling to survive against so many cultural stereotypes that are all too prevalent today. They were such different individuals, yet at the same time, so sure they were right. I loved how Tamir stood up for others, even against his saviour. It was human nature shining though at its finest.
Throughout this novel Avario had me hooked. I found myself pushing forwards, needing to know what would happen next. This was definitely a one of a kind read.
