Breaking the rules has never been Wesley’s way…until he meets Mino.
Rule Number Two that the Thorn brothers live by is that employees of the ranch are off-limits. Wesley has always followed that rule, never stepping out of his comfort zone to do more than talk to one of the cowhands that help run his family’s ranch. Being a vampire makes it easier, since he doesn’t go out during the day.
Mino’s been interested in the youngest Thorn brother since he began working at The Blood & Thorn Ranch. It’s those stupid rules that hold him back from making the first move. Well, those and the fact that Wesley could kill him in a blink of his eye. Being human in a world of supernatural creatures makes living difficult, since he’s considered prey.
Vampires, Cowboys, and Hunks, OH MY! I LOVE a good vampire book! Cowboy books are one of my guilty pleasures, so putting them both in one story was just begging for me to read it! The Thorn brothers are a bunch of old, conniving, and rule abiding vampires. Wesley is the book-keeper for their ranch and Mino is a human that works for them. Mino has the hots for Wesley, but Wesley is his boss. That is a lot of roadblocks and trouble for these two. Personally, I don’t feel like Wesley was all that loveable. I couldn’t see what Mino saw in him, but he was a sexy vampire cowboy, so I let that go. The sex scenes between the two were very steamy and yummy! I wish that chemistry and connection followed into their relationship, but sadly it did not. Their banter and dialogue was kind of boring for a couple in lust with each other. I hope it was because so much building of the series had to happen in so few pages.
For such a short novella, the author introduced a lot of different characters – the vampires, shifters, humans, and more. The community where the ranch is located is well thought out and developed and I suspect that the rest of the series will be good. I’m looking forward to reading more from it and getting to know the rest of the characters better.
