Sexy and captivating as only V.M. Black can do it. This book is the continuation of Cora and Dorian’s love story told through his point of view. I find it interesting that I am more sympathetic for her the more I hear it from him. When read Cora’s Choice Series, she sounded a bit whiney (actually quite a lot at times hehe) but the more I hear from Dorian the more I feel like he’s pushing her too far too soon and I feel that he either gives in completely to the bond or he treats her fully like a human. There shouldn’t be an in-between. Then again I already know what can happen if they give in to the bond and then I understand why he sometimes acts the way he does. I obviously have issues and cannot make up my mind =@ I will say this though, I’m glad the romance is at that place where she’s still hesitant but fully aware of the intense emotions and feelings he evokes in her, and Dorian being Dorian makes it all oh, so worthy for her. Another thing I find exceptional about these stories is that the author always manages to expand even the most trivial anecdote into a full-blown, well-told storyline. And the secondary characters, being that they are from Dorian’s world in this story, are clearly not innocent and sinless at all. Kudos for not making them appear something they are not. Great story from a great author and I am glad the next installment is in fact in production. ** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

DELICIOUSLY DARK AND DIVINELY ENTERTAINING !!! Title: Blood GAMES Series: Billionaire Vampire's Choice Designation: Book Four of Series, NOT a Standalone, Novella with Cliffhanger Author: V.M. Black My Rating: FIVE SPELLBINDING STARS***** Wow! V.M. Black has delivered yet another winner with Blood Games, the continuation of her riveting new series, Billionaire Vampire's Choice and I'm still totally captivated! This series is a follow up to her two blockbuster hits, Cora's Choice and Cora's Bond which consisted of six books each so hopefully, we'll also have six books of Vampire's Choice to love and enjoy. I do not believe it's necessary to read the other two series first in order to understand or enjoy this one but this is a series folks, so be forewarned. There are multiple novellas and dare I say it, cliffhangers. Yikes! So if you haven't read Books One thru Three, Blood Lust, Cold Blood and Blood Gift, please STOP HERE! But truthfully, there is absolutely nothing I enjoy more than a good serial with nail biting, white knuckle, oh my glory, what's going to happen next, can't wait for the next book endings! And Black delivers in spades! She never fails to tease, tantalize and entertain her readers with her amazing skill, astounding imagination and perfect prose. After reading all twelve books of Cora's Choice and Cora's Bond, I was eager to start reading this series because we finally get to hear the events as told in the first person from Dorian's point of view. I can't even begin to count the number of times I remarked to myself during Cora's story, "I wish I knew what Dorian is thinking" or "what I wouldn't give to know what's going on in Dorian's brain" or "I wonder how Dorian really feels". Well folks, now we do because this is Dorian's story, his past and his present, in his own words. And it is brilliant! After I read the last page, I just sat there for what seemed like an eternity - I was completely blown away. When I read Cora's story, I had no earthly idea that Dorian was so conflicted and in such tortuous psychological as well as physical pain. I never suspected that he had such a visceral and primal reaction to Cora Shaw after seeing her photograph and especially after meeting her for the first time but I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's talk some basics about the story. It is well developed, well executed, dark, exciting, powerful, thrilling, riveting, soul searching, introspective, romantic, arousing, seductive and sensual. These are only a few of the words that come to mind after reading this story. The dialogue is intelligent, exceptionally well written and flows beautifully. Ah, the characters, they are the heart and soul of this story. They are captivating, fascinating, complex, engaging, raw and sexy as sin. Black skillfully combines these elements into a wonderfully entertaining paranormal chronicle filled to the brim with intrigue, suspense, political machinations, romance and hope. V.M. Black is a true wordsmith and a master of her trade and I not only enjoy reading her books, I truly savor each and every word. So deliciously dark and divinely entertaining! The premise of the story: In the world of vampires, there are agnates who are the vampires, and cognates who are the blood source for their Agnate. Vampires must have the blood of humans to survive but in this story, very few survive the blood kiss of a vampire. Most humans die but when one does survive, that human becomes a cognate and the sole source of food

As the story from Dorian's point of view continues I find myself being drawn deeper into the mind of this complex Agnate. Cora's confusion and frustration at the situation are completely understandable but being given this insight into why Dorian at times appears aloof and unfeeling towards his cognate, the truth is in fact the complete opposite of how it appears, showing just how deeply he loves and is protecting Cora from not only their enemies but himself and the bond that could consume them both. I love this authors writing, the way she conveys the depth of the characters and the complex society they live in is exceptional and I can't get enough.
