    One thought on “My Vampire and I”

    1. 3 StarsI have no idea what compelled me to read this particular book. By all accounts, the reactions to this story on are very split down the middle, with many not-so-nice reviews acting as a deterrent on the books main page. But regardless of this, I dived in anyway, simply because I needed some major paranormal fluff to lighten my mood after a string of intense reads, and this happened to cross my reading radar at just the right time. This was definitely a light read, for which I am grateful [...]

    2. M/M + Vampire = a lot of cold showers BUT I can't give 5 stars Positive aspects* Both main characters are very well explored in this book. You will read mainly Roger POV but there will be some glimpses in Marcus life. It's very interesting the "on live" narration of Marcus stories. When he is telling something to Roger you will have few flashbacks. It's very wise choice in my view. I can count in my hand the number of times I read flashbacks without get bored this book is one of them.* The writi [...]

    3. i read t 32% before giving up it started off good, i thought the MC was charming and funny but after the two MC's meet i lost all interest the sex was weird, the dialogue was cheesy, and the extreme instalove was just overly unbelievable. no connection with these characters at all. I am just too bored with it to continue

    4. Oh, where do I begin. First of all, I simply loved the character of Marcus, or at least the idea of him. Though this was really Roger's story, I found him to be a tad too superficial and not really as sincere and sweet as Marcus found him to be. Marcus, on the other hand, was what I would picture a Vampire lover to be: strong, sexy, and oh so powerful. The villains were also nicely done to a degree, though I wish they had been given more things to do. The basic idea was great, however the fact t [...]

    5. 4.5 stars for a well written m/m vampire tale!While the speed in which Marcus and Roger 'hook up' seemed a little rushed to me, the rest of the story was well paced and really held my interest. I'm not usually a fan of the first person POV but with Marcus' flashbacks filling in his historical perspective, I think it worked quite well. Unlike a lot of m/m vampire stories I've read, My Vampire and I wasn't bogged down by needless sex scenes. Don't get me wrong. I enjoy the sex scenes as much as an [...]

    6. Normally I like my vampires dark, evil, brooding, seriously troubled, angsty, sinister everything which the vampires in this book are not. The villains are only a little bit evil, dangers are conquered easily and Marcus and Roger are just to cute together. BUT despite everything I really like this book :) It is funny, light and a wonderful read. I always had to laugh because of Rogers attitude: "I am in love with a vampire - Oooops, my bad - but hey, he is hot and a great guy, so okay!"Sooo, if [...]

    7. ok. it was an ok book, but only because I got it with a discount and only paid 99 cent for it. otherwise I would be a bit disappointed now I admit. the writing is ok and the story was fun to read, yet I never got into it. it was like watching a movie just because it happened to run at tv that moment. the whole book is too mushy for my liking. everyone is happy, everyone is in love, and also the bad guys are only kinda 1-dimensional. what I missed the most was the vampire-stuff. oh, there's some [...]

    8. Just could not bring myself to like the main character. He is planning on giving up everything he knows for a man he's known for a couple hours?

    9. La narrativa es bastante mala, igual que la de un mal fanfic, la historia esta llena de cliches y es super predecible. Lo bueno es que es fácil de leer y no es mortalmente aburrida.

    10. Unlikeable characters, poor writing, more sex than story and that was almost a plus because the story didn't appeal to me. I did like the title and blurb.

    11. This one really confused me!A content suitable to fill 2 or 3 paragraphs was stretched over about 90% of the book and the rest 10% were filled with a rushed and hasty summery of events which could have served as a blueprint for a halfway decent story!!!However my greatest complain is that many questions (view spoiler)[ mostly regarding Thomas (hide spoiler)] were left unanswered.I am not buying any further books in this series, but I might give the next volume a chance if I can borrow it.

    12. I give this book a full 4 stars because even though I like it because it was so cute, sweet and it been awhile since I found a good M/M book that made me laugh. However I feel there were time when the author add to much that I feel could have been skip and there were time when I feel lost and wonder "wait, what happen?" But other then that it was a book I enjoy reading. The story begin with Roger, who names remind of a boy I have a crush with when I was elementary school so this book got some br [...]

    13. My Vampire & I is an entertaining contemporary paranormal tale with more than a few twists and turns to keep you guessing as you race through its fast paced plot. The story kept my interest from beginning to end and its witty dialogue between Marcus and Roger had me laughing on more than one occasion. These two are truly atypical of characters usually found in most vampire tales and that’s what makes them all the more special. Marcus is a great guy who loves the much younger Roger unquesti [...]

    14. Hmmm As the 2 stars say It was okIt didnt grab me at all, but still an OK story I guessIts about Roger, who meets a vampire at his birthday party Falls in love with him within minutes gagging and they live happily ever afterOf course there is a near death (haha Vamp near death get it? ;) experience but they make it out alive Or as alive as a vamp is these daysThats it really We get it from Rogers POV. And the way he remembered these first months with his vampire, made me wonder if his Vampire wo [...]

    15. Over-the-top, cheesey instant vampire mateI’m normally a fan of cheesy paranormal m/m romances, and the instant mate trope often works for me. Not in this case, as the human went from attracted to head-over-heels, extraordinarily saccharine sweet in love with what seemed to be zero self-reflection or self-awareness. In addition, the dangerous backstory threatening potential happiness was revealed in page after page of simplistic dialog and explanation as the vampire described his long history. [...]

    16. Sekilas agak-agak mirip dengan Twilight. Cinta yang teramat dalam pada pandangan pertama. Hanya sekilas lho.Tapi setelah kita membaca banyak halaman, ternyata yang disajikan oleh JP Bowie berbeda dengan Twilight. Vampire-nya masih bisa tidur dan bisa mati terkena sinar matahari. Dan tidak bisa masuk ke dalam sebuah ruangan tanpa diizinkan masuk oleh penghuni di dalamnya.Secara keseluruhan, lumayan. Sedikit terkejut saat kemunculan sosok yang sudah mati (mantan dari Marcus). Pertempurannya masih [...]

    17. I'll start by saying I'm glad I read Blood Relations first. The MC, Roger, was annoying and obnoxious and it took great effort to continue past chapter 3. The instalove in this was just too much. At one point I even thought less of the other MC Marcus but then it got better and I got into the story. I will read the next one but only because It doesn't seem to star Roger.

    18. I knew that I would like this book, as I do most of J. P. Bowie's books, but I like it for reasons I wasn't expecting. Of course there's lots of Vampire on man sex, and wondrous vampiric antics, but to my surprise and my enjoyment, there is a light and humorous thread running through the book. I mean, have you ever heard of a vampire named Roger? Neither had I. I hope the other four books are just as good.

    19. Read this whole series and though its a bit clichedmpire meets boy, vampire sleeps with/bites boy, boy becomes vampire, vampires live happily for all eternitys still a good read has action in each book because each vampire has a problem from there past they must take care of to save the life of there mate themselves and the relationship between them.

    20. Aunque en ciertos momentos la prosa de J. P. me ha resultado un poquito pesada, debo reconocer que la historia de Marcus y Roger me ha entretenido mucho, es interesante ver como Roger acepta al guapo vampiro y cómo también a cada momento se encuentra dudando de si es o no suficiente para él. Tengo ganas de más así que veré cuándo me pongo con el que sigue de la saga.

    21. Probably should have been a DNF but I was being stubborn and kept pushing through it. Insta-love and then too much constant reassurance of love on both parts boring. Too much earth shattering sex boring. Finally got to the fighting scene and it was over before it got interesting.

    22. I like this series but it is lacking something I come to expect from J.P. Bowie. I can't quite put my finger on it. It was cute, a little campy, entertaining, but not very gripping.

    23. This was a good, solid vampire romance, but I didn't come away loving or hating it. As a matter of fact, it has been a few days since I finished and I had to really work to remember the story.
