Ready for a little sexy time? Well then you've found the right story. There is a great deal of good 'ole fashion sexy time between vampire and werewolf - a combination that is not often seen as they are suppose to be enemies.

However Ms. Blackstream slides in a twist of paramount importance that makes the idea of the two main characters, a vampire and werewolf, getting it on easier to understand: one of them is both! An interesting plot twist, and a beautiful mythology that explains the plausibility of a hybrid creature, much better than say Underworld.

Sorin and Gia are two complicated characters that come into the story with baggage and deep secrets. Gia, lupa of the local werewolf pack, comes looking for a place to hide when the ancient custom of Aphrodite's Hunt was forced upon her, a custom designed to mate a lupa with a strong partner. Sorin is a vampire barely surviving and wallowing in memories of mistakes he's made. Add in some sexual tension and the magic of the Goddess of Love and you've got a powerful blend of sex and dominance. A story older than time itself.

It was a good story. However I think it could have been teased out a little bit more with the background of each character. Their back stories seemed a little forced and rushed, like an afterthought. Since Sorin and Gia both enter the story with baggage there is plenty of opportunity to open it up a bit more. You know from the beginning there is more to the two of them, however the sex seems to overtake this depth of each character and creates a primal character that while fun to read, leaves you no connection.

All-in-all though I did enjoy the story. I loved the new mythology that I hadn't read before. I loved the characters and their struggles to find balance in power and control, and well the sexy time scenes were fun: primal and raw. A good read for the Paranormal Romance book-lover! ( )

Book received free from Library Thing with request for a review.

Sorin is a vampire who, due to a tragic event 7 years earlier, has stopped drinking blood. He is existing on the smallest amount of energy he can siphon from others and remain minimally functional. Gia is a werewolf who seeks out protection from Sorin during the three nights of the full moon. Sorin initially refuses Gia's request but she persuades him by forcing her blood upon him, and promising more. Once that happens he is unable to resist.

Gia does not give Sorin the full story behind her need for protection. She is the lupa of her pack, and her mate betrayed her by being unfaithful. The pack decided to call for Aphrodite's hunt to choose a new mate for Gia. During the hunt the males of the pack all try to catch and claim the lupa; the one who does this then becomes her new mate. Gia wants to choose on her own mate so she attempts to thwart the hunt by hiding out with the vampire. Sorin has his own secrets, however, so hiding out with him is much more complicated than Gia could ever have imagined.

The chemistry between Sorin and Gia is immediate and HOT! I don't want to give any more of the story away but suffice it to say that several times things seemed to be winding down when a new and exciting twist was presented. It was a really great read and I highly recommend it. Note that this falls under the category of erotica because of some explicit sex and associated language. But that's what makes it fun, right?

This is the second book I've received from Ms. Blackstream. The first was Under His Skin; if you've not read that one I highly recommend it, as well. ( )

Aphrodite's Hunt was written for readers exactly like me. If you like paranormal romance with vampires and werewolves, heavy on the erotic with plenty of blood drinking, wolf chasing and dominant males, then this is an excellent choice.

This book was well done for erotica that skirts the edge of horror. I would say that a good 60% to 70% of the book was sex or thinking of sex, but maybe that was just me. When it is not about sex, there is a lot of fighting, scrapping, and chasing (sometimes even those things are about sex). This was an action packed read that I finished in just two nights. There is quite a bit of blood. Sorin has lived in denial of his true nature for ages and when Gia comes in he loses all control. He almost kills her several times, at least one of which is while they are having sex. There is a lot of gripping of hips until they bruise. Vampire/Werewolf loving...ah, sweet beautiful agony.

The characters' back stories were wonderful and the creatures' mythologies were rich. Both main characters do a lot of real growth. They change throughout the story which made for a well rounded read. Gia was just as strong as Sorin and that worked for me. I don't enjoy wilting weeping female characters. This had none of those. It was well written and well planned. I did not know what was going to happen next but I knew I had to keep reading. I plan to read more from Jennifer Blackstream. I've already bought, read, and reviewed the first in her Revenge in Vein Series.
