Review: Drain Me Dry by Leigh Wilder
Drain Me Dry
Summary From Goodreads:
19 year old Jamie has had it with living. He has a terrible job, no friends, and his home life is unbearable. He wants to end it all, but is too frightened to slit his own wrists. Instead he goes to The Victorian, a seedy underground blood den for vampires and their groupies, where he hopes to find an angel of death to end it all for him. Instead he finds Damian, who has much sexier things on his mind than death. Will Jamie succeed in his plan of suicide by vampire, or will he get an unexpected HEA?
Warning: The following book contains mature content and erotic situations.
It’s time for another edition of Frodo’s Hobbit Sized Reviews! This is where I write a review in the time I have before I go to work or before I go to bed. Short and sweet just like 2nd breakfast!
I hadn’t realized it had been 2 whole months since a Hobbit Sized Review, wow! Well the style fits perfectly for this short piece. Jamie is a bit of a whiner as the MC, but he’s someone you can sympathize with because of his home situation. You may not root for Jamie, but he may be too innocent in the end for you to care. As for Damian? Insert sexy older male vampire model here please! Damian is your typical gorgeous vampire, a seasoned pro in the bedroom, and with an apparent soft spot for the innocent and the suffering. You can’t not like him.
The only complaint I have is the transition from Jamie’s suicide plan to his time with Damian is a bit rough. It’s minor and it isn’t glaring, but noticeable. Wilder excels once you move from the dialogue and over to the intimate scenes. While Drain Me Dry is a short piece, Wilder will have no problem getting you all hot and bothered and aching (pun intended) for more. It’s sexy, it is playful and Damian is everything you could want in a sexy vampire. Once you’ve drained yourself dry from reading the story you’ll be right back for more of Wilder’s fantastic writing. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.
