Vampires, strippers, escorts, night clubs, gangs, pimps and corrupt cops, the Nightlife of New York is never boring.
Is she a beautiful blond guardian angel as he imagined, or something else entirely? When Michelle saves Aaron's life she shares the benefits of her blood (after getting him shot accidentally). He awakes a changed man, living in a purgatory of eternal night, never to see the sunrise again.
Michelle drags Aaron through a hardcore learning curve of vampiric slavery. Forced to adapt to servitude, Aaron is subject to her authority of compulsion. She orders him around like a puppet on a string, a dog on a very short leash. First things first, he must learn to feed properly without creating bloodslaves (humans addicted to the powerful drug-like effect of their venomous bite).
And then she puts him to work-a male escort in the sex trade-same as Michelle. Aaron walks a tightrope of strictly controlled feeding regiments and intensely erotic sexual adventures while catering to the neurotic control-freak tendencies of his new master. It's do or die, Michelle vows to eliminate him if he proves too difficult to control. The real kicker-amidst all these shocking and degrading adjustments, Aaron finds he's falling in love.
Can he maintain and keep a sliver of his humanity intact? Innocence is a luxury few can afford in the decadent nightlife of New York. In a world where sex, blood, and power over women is so readily accessible, Aaron struggles against the predatory instincts deeply rooted in his new psyche. He must find his way quickly, practicing rigid self-control, or risk the consequences of Michelle's wrath.
My Take on This Journey:
The Nightlife New York was a well rounded story filled with mystery, intrigue, sex, paranormal vampire mystique, love, lust, fantasy, and corrupt cops. This was a page turner from the beginning to the end. I thoroughly enjoyed this fast-paced read. It was a fun story, with a unique take on gory erotic behavior. It starts out with the main character, Aaron, who is a waiter trying to make a living. He is miserable, and constantly used by his friend and roommate, Kyle, and his ex-girlfriend, Delia. He can't seem to get Delia out of his mind, even though she is quite a self absorbed B****.
Aaron works at an Italian Restaurant, Bemichi's, with the boss from hell. Bemichi, his boss, is constantly reminding him not to fraternize with the customers, yet he has to deal with rich, older women sexually grabbing his wares, but he keeps his mouth shut in order not to make waves. He just wants to do his job and go home to his lonely life. One night Aaron is leaving work, and comes face to face with two crooked cops that are harassing the most beautiful woman he has ever seen in his life, Michelle, and she takes his breath away. For the first time in his life, he stands up for someone, and in doing so, is caught in the cross-fire and shot. In seconds Michelle beats the hell out of the two cops, that were trying to extort money from her, and worse. Michelle, a vampire, decides at that moment, that Aaron will die if she doesn't feed him her blood. She saves Aaron, and becomes his master, and he becomes her blood slave. From that moment on, they are caught up in a whirlwind, lust-filled, blood-sucking romp. The two of them can read each others minds, and they have supernatural abilities, and can do outlandishly crazy things with their bodies. They are both quick on their feet, intentional in their moves, and on-alert to attack when necessary.
The sex scenes, that feature Aaron escorting women in this novel, are explicit, and outrageously descriptive. Nightlife New York will get you caught up in the carnal pleasures of their escapades. Michelle introduced Aaron to the escorting world, in order to get the blood they need to survive at night from innocent, unsuspecting, women. They frequent shotty nightclubs, and bars, and give these women multiple orgasms with a suck in the neck. They mesmerize them with their eyes, but have to be careful not to suck too long, or they will make the intended a blood slave. Aaron knows that he is in love with Michelle, from the beginning, while Michelle always has in the back on her mind the possibility of having to kill Aaron eventually, if he gets out of hand. Aaron is completely enthralled with Michelle, and says that, "her blood is better than sex." He thinks that until he has sex with her, then he can't get enough of her. He realizes that he finally has a life worth living now that he has her, cause everyone else in his life has always let him down. All he needed was her to feel complete, even if she could be sadistic and controlling at times.
At one point Michelle and Aaron connect on another level that brings them closer together than ever. They let each other into the other's mind to see the hurtful, and demeaning things that have happened to them in their lives. This novel will have you clearly seeing what the Nightlife in NewYork could really look like if this book was real. This novel has a really good plot, and twists and turns, that will have you on the edge of your seats. I recommend the Nightlife New York to paranormal readers that like a lot of spice in their reading.
I give The Nightlife New York a crazy, head turning, blood-thirsting 4 stars!
