#BookReview – “Amaury’s Hellion” by Tina Folsom


Blurb

Vampire Amaury LeSang is cursed to feel everybody's emotions like a permanent migraine. The only way to alleviate the pain is through sex. When he meets the feisty human woman Nina, a cure for his ailment seems within reach: in her presence all pain vanishes. 

Unfortunately, Nina is out to kill him because she believes he's involved in her brother's death. And she would succeed if only Amaury's bad boy charm didn't play havoc with her hormones and catapulted her into his arms and his bed every time she was near him.

As every kiss brings them physically closer, danger is lurking and threatens to destroy the little trust they have in each other.

Review

In book 2 of the Scanguard Vampires series, Amaury is cursed to feel the emotions of others, and it causes him extreme pain. The only way to find a little temporary peace is to have sex with whoever is willing, so he’s gained the reputation of a sexoholic among his friends.
Nina blames her brother’s death on the vampires he worked for. She’s a tough woman and ties Amaury up in knots, quite literally. To him, she’s different from anyone he’s ever met. He’s calm and at peace in her presence, no sex needed, but they certainly do have a lot of it.
I loved the way the H/h bickered with one another. Their trust and self-esteem issues often interfered with their budding relationship, but they fit well together as both friends and as lovers once they finally let down their guard. I sympathized with and liked both the characters.
The sex scenes are super hot but long. The story could use an edit to minimize the telling. Sometimes more than one person talked in the same paragraph, which led to confusion. There were so many people and so much going on in the final battle scene that I couldn’t visualize it.
Overall, I like this story and plan to read more in the series.
3 Stars
