Bulls and Blood (The Blood & Thorn Ranch #1) by T.A. Chase

Bulls and Blood Disclaimer MaleTAGBreaking 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.

These two males, from different species and societies, must find a way to meet in the middle of their worlds if they have a chance at love. addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da16Kim Talks TomesTAG

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.
