Lao has a ton of enemies and now the war with the evil reign is heating up. Injured while fighting the evil vampires, he takes refuge in Bloody or Nothing and finds the ultimate battle is brewing for the Evil Master has taken an interest in Lao. Can Tyler, the Bloody or Nothing doctor, show Lao that love is worth fighting for?
I love the Bloody or Nothing series. It has a great cast of characters, tight writing and some scorching hot sex scenes to steal your breath away. The final showdown with the evil master is here and this author delivers a story that had me at first, wanting to kill Lao, the centuries old vampire master and then when he meets Tyler, the reader sees a side of him that we thought was lost forever. It’s a compelling story that leaves the reader wondering what happens next for the gang at Bloody or Nothing and their allies. Ms. Hill is a talented author and now has me hooked on her Bloody or Nothing Series. This is the spin-off to her fabulous Elixer Maidens series that I am definitely going to grab soon. We meet them in this third story at the Bloody or Nothing and I was intrigued by their story.
Lao is a hard character to relate to right away. He has made it his mission to hunt down vampire hunters and whoever stands in his way. Eventually we begin to see the real man behind the hardened warrior, one who longs for love and is sure it isn’t for him anymore, especially after the way he has lived his life as a vampire the last few centuries. Ms. Hill has a great way of crafting a complex character that is a hardened warrior, has a ton of enemies from vampires to vampire hunters and one who has an attitude of “Go ahead…take your best shot.” Tyler has been a secondary character in the first two books and it was nice to see, he finally got his happy ending. I really enjoyed how Tyler showed Lao that love is worth fighting for and how Lao can be redeemed by changing his thinking.
BLOODY OR NOTHING: VILLIAN TAMED is a fast paced story that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat with passion, excitement and a storyline that will leave you gasping for more. I look forward to seeing if Ms. Hill will revisit the Bloody or Nothing hotel and the vampires that go there in the future. It would be interesting to see what they are up to in the future. If you are looking for another vampire series to enjoy, then grab the Bloody or Nothing novellas (SUDSY, BOTTOMS UP and VILLAIN TAMED) as it will give you hours of hot steamy reading fun.
This is an objective review and not an endorsement of the book.
