Blurb:

Genre: Gay Romance / LGBT Supernatural Romance James is slim, built, and a vampire death over his limit.

After one too many kills, the local vampire nest sends him an ultimatum.

“Work with us, or you won’t see morning.”

Working with a vamp isn’t ideal, even if his new partner is awfully cute – and an authentic Old-West cowboy to boot.

Can a too eager vampire hunter and Old West cowboy work together to complete their mission and more?

This 18,000+ word LGBT supernatural romance contains detailed explicit descriptions of hot love making between a trim and hard vampire hunter and a Old-West vampire cowboy.

It’s intended for the enjoyment of adult readers only (especially those who gay paranormal stories with cowboys and vampires).

Author Note: This is a standalone HEA/HFN gay romance with no cliffhanger.

My View:

Ok, so I have to admit I went into this book fully expecting to hate it and tear it to shreds. But that didn’t happen. I didn’t love it either, but it earned the three stars I’m giving it.

I dislike this recent trend of titling books such as this one–Gay for Fill-in-the-Blank. This author appears to write a number of these types with other stories titled Gay for His Hawaiian Cop, Gay for the Pirate and Gay for the Celebrity. Without a lot of imagination going into the names chosen I figured there wasn’t much thought going into things like plot or characterization.

I’m a man who can admit when I was wrong and I was wrong to pre-judge this story. It’s not great by any stretch of the imagination but it’s far from the worst thing I’ve ever read.

The plot here revolves around a vampire hunter named James who is given an ultimatum by a local vamp clan to work with them or die. He doesn’t love the idea but finds himself drawn to Thomas, the bloodsucker he’d be working with to takeout a vampire who’s pushed his luck with the clan too many times.

This part of the story with James and Thomas working together was the best part of the story. Austin isn’t without talent and the plot here was rather suspenseful. This was the best part of the story and what earned it the three star rating. It may have been higher if not for the god-awful, cheesy ex scenes with lines such as this.

If there was a way to describe his cock, it was primal. It was long, thick, with bulged out veins.

All dick are manly, but my cowboy for an extra helping at the dinner table.

And

Wow, a vampire cowboy’s got his finger up my ass.

I spent more time rolling my eyes and groaning than I did actually enjoying reading about Thomas and James getting along.

There were also some misused words and plenty of autonomous body parts. And negative points here for using one of the most overused lines in M/M.

Once I was a block away, I let out a breath I didn’t know I held.

If you’re looking for a fun romp that is totally not serious then I’d recommend this story. If you want anything other than that just move on.
