This story is about Brianna, a mortal in love with a vampire, and Yolen, a detective vampire on the heels of a drugs kingpin and determined to keep Brianna safe, no matter the cost. Yolen has the potential to become a mastyr vampire but doesn't want it after he saw a friend and his mate get killed immediately after he 'leveled up'. Things are going downhill for Brianna and Yolen as they both want something different but Brianna can't understand why she keeps on pushing. Throw Mastyr Keynes into the mix and we get a hot, fast-paced story. The characters are well-rounded and old favourites are either mentioned or make cameo appearances. This world becomes more real everytime I read about it. The plot is fast paced and with no holes, although the 'bad guy' is known almost from the start, it's not for the mystery that you read this book. It is romantic and funny, hot and sad. Definitely recommended for all fans of Caris Roane and if you haven't read anything of hers, then I can highly recommend the Blood Rose series as a starting point.

An Excellent Book Contemporary Paranormal Romance Yolen is determined to protect Brianna and he feels the best way to do that is by keeping his love life and work life separate. He is determined to do whatever it takes to keep her safe even if that means keeping her at a distance especially after he saw his best friend slaughtered by the enemy. Except she doesn’t seem to understand and wants more from and of him. If that isn’t bad enough his mastyr calling is surging whenever he is around her, which makes him crave her even more. He digs his heels in and sticks to their Friday nights only because he believes in what he is doing. Is he risking losing her, the woman he loves by keeping her at arm’s length? Brianna wants a deeper connection with Yolen, who she loves. Unfortunately he has sworn to limit their relationship to one date a week. As if that isn’t enough her heart is laboring with an overproduction of what Yolen needs most but he’s not around to relieve the strain on her heart. Now with another vampire courting her and one that has embraced his mastyr calling Brianna finds herself drawn to him in a way she doesn’t understand. She agrees to go out with him as she can’t seem to help herself. She loves Yolen body and soul so how can she turn away from him? Will this make Yolen finally relent and give her what she needs? This is an interesting book that has a lot of action and it makes for a fast read. It proves to be another book in a series that is proving to be very different and fun to read. The characters are well developed and interesting and it moves the story along very well. It will also have readers hoping for more in this series. The world building is amazing and readers can easily imagine it and get lost in it. This is definitely one to check out. Received a review copy

 Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review This is a short Blood Rose story. I have read all the 8 Blood Rose books by Caris Roane and await #9. This little tale along with Hunger and Seduced give a bit more idea of events going on in the realm.  This story centers around Yolen who is trying to keep from accepting his mastyr power calling. His girl friend Brianna  is also suffering because she wants more time with him but he believes too much contact will put her in danger.  Interesting seeing how a mastyr vampires develop in this installment and why he is holding back. Just for understanding might read one of the Blood Rose novels first.

Sated my Hunger... Brianna and Yolen love each other, but she wants more than a Friday night each week. After seeing what happened to a friend of his and his wife, Yolen thinks distance is what will keep Brianna safe. He tries to focus on his investigation, but having another vampire hanging around his girl worries him. Things unfold fast and evil makes itself known. Hunger was a great short tale that was really fast paced... everything rounds out nicely for these two. This one grabbed my attention!

Gifted copy for honest review. Hunger (Blood Rose Tales #2) was awesome.  The story is about Yolen and Brianna.  Yolen keeps is private and work life separate to protect Brianna.  However, Brianna wants more than one night a week.  This is a great story and I highly recommend it.

I am always excited when I pick up another Blood Rose novel! "Hunger" is definitely a story that stirs your emotions. Yolen and Brianna are characters that arouse your passion to fever pitch! Their struggle to be together and strength to forgive and compromise is just one more reason this book seizes your attention! Onto book three for my fix!!

Copy received in return for honest review. You know they say fiction mirrors reality at times? I didn't really want to read into Yolen's behavior about relationships to my own and yet I did. That was a bit disturbing. I can only hope to enjoy that same moment both people work through their differences and unite (seemed pretty hot in the book). Yolen has his reasons and so does Brianna; the key is figuring out they are truly happier together, made for each other, and grabbing on to that with both hands.

Just ended this book,its a short story,easy to read and easy pace to follow...The storyline is well written and the characters Brianna & Yolen added previous personage from Blood Rose series...In this tale,there is the need to to make a relationship to work,break up/going on,understanding better the purpose of the relation,a calling to accept or not,fight rival/enemy,sex scene,discovery,to find out who you are,stubbornness,....With that said,you should get this book,to know what/how is gonna happen...I will suggest also to read the series and the Blood Rose series...I did enjoyed,love it until the last page and saying:Yay!!!
