Goodreads Blurb:

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 Review:

The Nightlife was very interesting and different paranormal read for me. A 3.5 rounded to a 4 rating. Very vivid, exciting and sexual, yup, a good start to the series. Any fans of the genre out there looking for something different will definitely enjoy this naughty vampire tale.

Aaron is an innocent hard working young man that tried to do a very brave and good thing trying to save a woman in distress. What he gets in return takes him to a new level, a new life and an adventure beyond his wildest dreams. His life will never be the same again.

Michelle is a vampire that does what she has to do to survive. One of those things is to keep her vampirism a secret. When she crosses paths with an innocent soul, one who put his life at risk to save hers without even knowing a thing about her or what she is. She does what she can to save him. Now she’s become a master and finds herself falling for her creation.

I enjoyed the story and the build to Michelle and Aaron as a couple. But I did not care for Michelle or her character at all. She was rather annoying, overly bossy and I just could not relate to her. However, I did see some positive changes in her as the story came to its end and hope that she continues in that direction for the next in the series. I look forward to see what happens with Aaron and Michelle in Vegas ;)
