Vampires Aaron and Michelle prowl the dark, gritty, strip clubs and back alleys of London on the hunt for Michael Jamison, the man who stole Michelle’s blood and left her for dead. To assist them, Aaron’s new master, Urvashi, calls in favors from her friends, Russian mercenary werewolves.
Wolves Katya and Ivan, hunters adept at killing rogue vampires, set aside their animosity for Aaron and Michelle to stop Jamison from killing again – he already has one bloodless victim lying in the morgue.
Jamison, ex-special forces, feels his enemies closing in, but he won’t go down without a fight – and like Aaron and Michelle, he also has powerful friends.
Experience the violent, sensual underbelly of Nightlife London, as Aaron and Michelle mix up a wicked blend of sex, chaos, and mayhem.
When I opened up the first Travis Luedke book, The Nightlife New York, back at the beginning of the year, I was blown away, he took a stereotype of a type of book I would never read and squashed it. Now, several books into the series later and all I keep asking is when does the next one come out? So naturally, I one-clicked my way to The Nightlife London a couple of days ago and I am so happy that I did. The only drawback to having this book and devouring it so quickly is that I want more. Yup… I was disappointed when I hit the end. I just get lost in Travis’s work so easily and it is over for me far too quickly.
If you have not read previous books in The Nightlife Series, this review will contain a few spoilers (especially of The Nightlife Paris).
The Nightlife series has found its way to London and Michelle and Aaron are on the hunt for Michael Jamison, the man who stole Michelle’s blood and left her for dead in Paris and ultimately breaking the connection shared by Michelle and Aaron. My biggest fear with the situation with Jamison was if Aaron and Michelle could make it through this without their connection to each other or would the severed tie be the downfall of this dynamic duo… and then there’s Urvashi. Aaron is now tied to the fallen angel and Michelle hates it with a passion. Aaron is hers. Can Michelle learn to share him with Urvashi? Throw in two wolves who want to kill all vampires and now you have a mix that certainly will not end well. Can Michelle and Aaron work with Urvashi, Katya and Ivan to stop Jamison or will they all kill each other first?
What I love about this series of books is the characters and their interactions. I love that Michelle and Aaron are so in love with one another even though in this book, their connection has been lost. I love the weird and twisted threesome that was created when Urvashi was thrown into the mix. And now there are two more characters and one of them is bound to Aaron, reminding him of his love in Ana (The Nightlife Las Vegas). I love the chemistry between the characters and I love the interactions. They are smart, witty and sassy! Aaron’s character really has a chance to shine in London with his smartass comments and his understanding of the situation they are all in.
Once again, I have to commend Travis Luedke on the language in the book, though I am thrown off a lot in books that use foreign languages in them, I never feel lost or confused when he throws in the languages into his writing. I find it really captivating and it ads so much to the story. I can almost hear Michelle cussing in French (surprisingly, the few words in French I don’t need translation of) but the banter back and forth with the languages didn’t leave me struggling at all. I loved the smart ass comments and the very serious love snaps throughout the book.
The Nightlife London took me on an entirely new adventure with my favorite vampires with their truly erotic bite and left me breathless. I am so completely consumed by the characters in The Nightlife books; I just want more and more. Travis writes with such passion and attention to detail, you cannot help but be swept up in the goings on in the shady side of London. The Nightlife London proves once again why I cannot get enough of the bite! The action in London throws you right in the midst of crime, drugs, passion and keeps you enthralled until the very end.
