When a centuries-old vampire in search of redemption meets a doctor who’s on a mission of her own, a searing, world-destroying passion is the last thing on either of their minds.
Minds can be changed.
A doctor with secrets of her own is drawn to a dangerous predator in this pulse-pounding paranormal romance from New York Times bestselling author Alyssa Day.
What better way to hide the existence of vampires from humans than in plain sight? Thus, the Vampire Motorcycle Club was born. Bane, the 300-year-old vampire who leads the club, has fought for years to protect his kind. But the truth about vampires is not only that they exist, it is that they are creatures of pure desire. Conscience and restraint has been burned out of them by the process of Turning. Any woman Bane meets is either prey—or food.
When I read that Bane’s Choice was “Sons of Anarchy meets True Blood in this sexy new series that is sure to captivate readers everywhere” I was on board!! A vampire MC was very appealing!
The book started slow for me. I just couldn’t seem to get into it right away. However, it eventually picked up and I was more interested. I totally got a little bit of a Sookie Stackhouse vibe when it came to the heroine of Bane’s Choice, Ryan. She has a little something “extra”. But, there are lots of comparisons to the True Blood series: all kinds of different creatures, a vampire who is disenchanted, etc. I loved the Sookie Stackhouse books, so this worked for me.
There isn’t much of the MC, however. I expected it to be more of a focus, but it is really just glossed over. Again, this wasn’t a huge deal breaker for me because I enjoyed the rest of the story, but I certainly didn’t get a sons of anarchy vibe.
If you like PNR and diversity in your creatures, Bane’s Choice is a solid pick! While I struggled with the pacing, I enjoyed the plot and characters!
