Thirst for the Hunt by A.C.Wentwood 2/5
Experience true Vampire Lust with no cliffhanger and a happily ever after ending! Contains Bonus Inside!
Desperately needing a way out of her rough childhood life, twenty year old Emily Hoover decides to run away to the small sleepy town of Depoe Bay, Oregon. Immediately she makes friends with Joy, the local diner owner and she finds a job. One night after work she meets Adam.
Adam is the Peter Pan to his lost boys, five abandoned vampires that he’s picked up among his two centuries of living, and cares for them. After taking them hunting one night, Adam encounters Emily and is entranced by her smell and knows he has to have her. But Brie, the only girl in the group and who is madly in love with Adam, smells the girl on him and has other plans for Emily, Death. Adam barely makes it in time to save Emily’s life, and is forced to tell her the truth.
Will she continue to run, or let lust and desire turn her?

I downloaded this novella for free during an Amazon promotion.
The vampire lost boys thing has been done, but I did like the dysfunctional gang as a whole, especially the highly jealous, more than crazy, lost girl.
I think the author is a huge fan of twilight because some similarities are uncanny- seriously, ‘vegetarian’, unique eyes, cold skin, uncanny. There is little time for character development and it felt like the characters made unbelievable choices just to progress the narrative.
I was pulled in by the Goodreads blurb, but the first line of blurb is misleading. I believe there to be a cliffhanger ending and there was next to zero steamy relationships.
This book was free on Amazon and included many bonus stories that I have decided not to read right now.
