The Unlikely Vamp by Scarlet Blackwell Zacariah is a shy vamp who has his servant bring him home a willing dinner Unexpectedly, Andrew shows up for dinner, Zacariah is NOT gay, he s sure I liked how this tipped things with the human pursuing him, having seen him in a vamp club Sort of a GFY in reverse.Sacrifice by J.L Merrow Hearing tales of virgin sacrifice at the stone circles from his mother, Damien is determined to sacrifice his own virginity to gain back what he lacks after his rich father [...]
The Unlikely Vampire by Scarlet Blackwell 2 stars Really not much to this story No plot just a vamp and donor quick read.Sacrifice by J.L Merrow 3 stars Pretty good story about one man needing to perform a ritual at a magical site in order to get wealth beyond his imagination.One Last Wish by Josephine Myles 3.5 stars Very cute story about a genie djinni and his master, Scott Scott seems like a really sweet guy and I liked his character a lot A very short story, but a quick, interesting read.May [...]
Overall, this was a 3.5 bumped up to a 4The Unlikely Vampire by Scarlet Blackwell 4 I liked this story Sweet story about a human pursuing a straight vampire and showing him what he was missing.Sacrifice by J.L Merrow 3 MC basically sacrifices his virginity to cleanse himself of all of the negativity surrounding his relationship with his emotionally distant and disappointed father.One Last Wish by Josephine Myles 4 Sweet genie story Pretty cliche with the master wishing freedom for the genie but [...]
I m a fan of m m anthologies, especially free m m anthologies, so I was happy to discover the Just One Bite collections on ARe This first volume contains six stories, all very different in tone and subject matter The Unlikely Vampire by Scarlet Blackwell 3 stars Cute and very silly Sacrifice by J.L Merrow 3.25 stars It was too short to feel much connection to the characters, but Merrow s writing is always pleasant and often poignant One Last Wish by Josephine Myles 3.5 stars Myles short stories [...]
I m going to do what I did with the other anthologies and rate it as a whole rather than each individual story I thought the collection flowed well, and that there was a good balance of sub genres and even pov among the stories.As happens with all anthologies, I liked some stories than others My favorites in this one were One Last Wish and Hunter and Hunted, both of which I would actually love to see in a longer version.
I enjoyed this quick free read from ARE My favorites were The Unlikely Vamp by Scarlet Blackwell and The Hunter and the Hunted by Stevie Woods I was also fascinated with Fire Can Make Rain by Nix Winter Made me wish they were longer I ve never read anything by Stevie Woods or Nix Winter before, so I m looking forward to seeing what else they have published.
The stories in this anthology were great but the stand out story for me was The Hunter And The Hunted by Stevie Woods I read it twice The conflict was brilliant and the story fabulous Now I m off to check out Stevie Woods books.

This collection is from All Romance eBooks and was free All are m m short stories My absolute favorite short story in the collection would have to be The Hunter and the Hunted by Stevie Woods.The Unlikely Vamp by Scarlet BlackwellWhen Zachariah Sayle s manservant brought dinner, the vampire was shocked to discover that the blood donor was male Andrew definitely wasn t his type considering the sexual component of feeding.Zach is remarkably shy for a vampire who has existed since the Victorian age [...]
Various authors, Just One BiteToo short for my liking, but the stories are all goodWarning This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS Rating 7 10PROS Each of the stories is well written that is, I didn t find any of them amateurish or wooden or chock full of typos and such Granted, this is the first I ve read by most of these writers, but they all seem to be promising authors There are some amusing little moments throughout the collection, as well as some pretty vivid character [...]
These really are short stories a few pages each Good for reading on your phone in line at the post office, rather than being satisfying romances Unlikely Vamp Zachariah is funny as a vampire who is a fussy, shy Victorian gentleman who is too shy to court his food and too polite to kill it.Sacrifice this one is a bit melancholy It is about Damian s relationship to his parents than what happens with Rafe.One last wish Scott meets a genie with a sad past and takes good care of him Funny and sweet. [...]
The Unlikely Vampire Wow, that was extremely hot for such a short story This is definitely one story I wish were longer I do hope these two sexy guys ended up a mated couple Sacrifice A little to boring for my liking The characters were really good and if this story would have been expanded on I think it had the making of a really good story One Last Wish Funny short story of a compassionate and selfless man finding a lamp and rubbing it and a genie comes out and then making Xavier free and love [...]
The Unlikely Vampire by Scarlett BlackwellWell that was an unlikely story for sure I m flabbergasted Yep You read that right I think I d be a little offended if I hadn t laughed so hard.Sacrifice by JL MerrowHmm I m pretty sure it was supposed to be incredibly romantic but it fell flat for me I even feel a little cheated Not my thing.One Last Wish by Josephine MylesWell Rushed is the word that first comes to mind but it was so short I doubt there was any time to develop it anyway so I enjoyed it [...]

Just One Bite, first volume contain six stories All the stories in this book are smut based and very short so no way to get bored Every story is different The Unlikely Vampire starting story of the book introduces a vampire who finds himself attracted to man while feeding And that scene alone can make your toes tingle The following stories all based on the concept of male male romance but not all of them are vampire A genie is particularly yumness.For a little light reading this is recommended t [...]
Overall this anthology was okay I really only enjoyed two The Unlikely Vampire and The Hunter The Hunted I wish those two had been longer in length Then there were the complete misses Sacrifice and Fire Can Make it Rain Sacrifice seemed sort of silly to me and I didn t quite get the premise for Fire, it could have been better The others weren t particularly memorable, I think Mayan Time could have been better if it were longer length and had time to explain things.
3.5 stars for this collection of interesting short stories written by authors I wasn t familiar with There was a good mix of paranormal characters not just your normal vampires tho I like those the best see below My favorites were The Unlikely Vampire and The Hunter the Hunted I thought those two stories were well written given how brief they were Both could definitely be expanded.
1 The Unlikely Vampire by Scarlet Blackwell 1 22 Sacrifice by J.L Merrow 3 One Last Wish by Josephine Myles 1 24 Mayan Time by Erik Orrantia 5 Fire Can Make It Rain by Nix Winter 6 The Hunter the Hunted by Stevie Woods 1 2These stories seemed like samples and they would have been rated higher if they d been flesh out and longer.
A free read from All Romance Admittedly, I don t normally seek out m m romance While the sex was hot, the stories themselves were almost too short to really connect to Enjoyable, but nothing fantastic Kelly Reading the Paranormal
I wish I could have my time back.Out of the six short tales, The Unlikely Vampire by Scarlet Blackwell and The Hunter the Hunted by Stevie Woods are the only two worth stars at all.With Stevie Woods read I wish there was , as in a longer story, but it was still interestinge other four you can skip unless you have time to spare.
I do like a good anthology and this one had its good points I enjoyed all the stories , some than others, but that s always the way it is with anthologies Some stories hit the mark I won t list them, let you choose your own favorites Read and enjoy.

This was a short collection of stories, mainly vampire ones, and mostly M M romance They weren t badbut also did little to get my motor humming I liked the fact that they were short, and each had it s own take on the Vampire mythos All in all, worth reading once, but that s it.
Six short tales, not all vampire related as I thought from the title, but dealing with the druid stones, a djinni in a lamp, Mayan reincarnation, mythical bards and princes, and a couple of vampires Enjoyable stories, each one a fairly quick read, with varying degrees of sexiness.
3.5 stars Scarlett Blackwell Very good, want Vampire J.L Merrow Very good Stone circle Josephine Myles Very good Genie Erik Orrantia Pretty good Mayan Nix Winter Ok Fantasy Stevie Woods Pretty good Vampire.
My Review These stories by the authorsi loved sharing each moment with their charactersloved it
I was surprised to find it to be not as good as I was expecting and I don t normally read M M books The stories were way to short and some of them weren t very good.
In this collection of short stories the one I liked the most was without a doubt The Hunter the Hunted
I would actually give it a 3.5 This is a great anthology of short stories with a lot of variety in the themes.
