SPARKLY REVIEW – THE NIGHTLIFE NEW YORK – 4.5 sparkly stars!!!
This is definitely not your mother’s vampire story. The Nightlife, New York, is the first in a series of novels penned by the talented author, Travis Luedke.
Aaron Pilan’s life sucks. He has a low-paid job in a restaurant, and ever since his girlfriend dumped him, he has no-one but a beer-swilling roommate for a Saturday night date. But all this changes when, in a mad act of heroism, he’s shot down by a misdirected bullet from a corrupt policeman’s sidearm.
French bombshell Michelle has a dilemma. She either watches the man who tried to save her die, or she can save him with her vampire’s blood. But Michelle knows his salvation will enslave him to her, so, as he gasps his dying breath, she offers him a choice.
When Aaron recovers, he’s at once thrust into a nightlife of vampires, nightclubs, strippers and thugs. Enslaved to his savior, Aaron becomes torn between desire, lust and resentment, never knowing if he will survive, or whether the vampiress will turn on him to protect herself.
The Nightlife, New York, is a gripping story of seduction and lust that ensnares the reader from its very first bite. The characters are unique and engaging, and the sex is hot and off the thermometer – O Mon Dieu! Though an easy read, the characters are complex and believable and writer Luedke takes care over descriptions that remain vivid and detailed from start to finish. “The girl didn’t have a clue she was sitting in the lap of a lioness.”
This is a must read and the author is definitely one to watch for. Read more about the other books in the series below:

• Title: The Nightlife New York (Book #1 in The Nightlife Series) • Author: Travis Luedke • Release Date: August 18, 2012 • Genre: Paranormal, Adult Romance
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.

Escaping one train-wreck relationship for another, she finds happiness with Aaron and Michelle as a bloodslave, a ‘pet’. When Aaron uses his telepathy to win thousands at the gambling tables, he attracts the deadly attention of the Colombian Cartel and Aaron and Michelle are ‘disappeared’.

elite, she falls in love with Enrique and prays someday he may grow to love her, too. But is it simply a relationship of convenience?
