    One thought on “The Vampire and the G.I.”

    1. In this one you don't have to pretend you're in the 80s, I'm pretty sure we ARE in the 80s! If it wasn't for the first line of the book: A future Los Angeles I would have thought I had gone back 30 years and landed in this story. Here the Russians are the bad guys, the MC is a damaged man (back from the war in this case, but he could have been a damaged cop, that nobody understood), there are weapons of mass destruction, an inherent mistrust against everything foreign and an economic crisis, whi [...]

    2. I was very happy to get back to this 'verse and read about some hot vamps!I enjoyed the first book of this series, and I was glad that Arturo and Sean made some appearances in this one! Cole, Sean's cousin, is back from the war and looking to reconnect with his family. When he finds out that Sean is mated to a vampire, he is shocked and prejudiced and it takes meeting a vampire - Rafael - to change his mind!Although their romance moves quickly, it kinda worked. They had great chemistry together, [...]

    3. 4.5 star review by The Blogger Girls.This story is a follow up to The Vampire and the P.I which I loved and highly recommend you start with. It can be read on its own, but you’d be missing out on a great story and introduction if you skip it. This had everything I loved about the first book, but with a different flavor.Here, we have Sean’s cousin, Cole, trying to get his life together and find a job as a civilian after the end of his military career. When he stops in to reconnect with Sean, [...]

    4. REVIEWED FOR PRISM BOOK ALLIANCE4.5 StarsIf you have read the Vampire and the P.I. you will remember Cole and the love of his life Arturo – a very long lived Vampire. Humans know that Vampires exist and with everything in life that appears a bit different some people like them and some people fear them – their fear often turns to hate.Sean is Cole’s cousin and has just left the military. Unsure of what to do with his life he reaches out to Cole, who he hasn’t seen for years, and is shock [...]

    5. Truly awful. This follow-up to The Vampire and the P.I. looks as if it does not come from the same writer, given how stiff the writing is, how un-dynamic the pacing, how utterly mediocre and redolent of the Reagan era the entire plotting, to say nothing of the shallow characters, the horribly contrived manner in which chains of events happen, and the constant impossibility for the reader to suspend his disbelief when faced with truly massive feats of narrative balbutience. Let me mention the G.I [...]

    6. Rafael Barrantes is over eight-hundred years old. He was once a lord in Catalonia, but as time went on, he made his way to the US and is now one of the most powerful vampires residing in Los Angeles, and a member of the Vampire Council that administers the laws and everyday business for vampire enterprises.The war has ended and Cole Everett, ex-GI, is back in the states. He seeks out his cousin Sean Martin, whom he hasn’t seen in years and wants to reconnect with. Cole didn’t come back from [...]

    7. Reviewed for Rainbow Gold Reviews. A copy was provided in exchange for an honest review. 9/10 pots of gold. After I read The Vampire and the P.I. I was craving a story about Rafael, the mysterious vampire that hired Sean as a detective. I got my wish in The Vampire and the G.I. when Sean’s cousin, Cole comes to visit after his time as a soldier is over. Rafael can’t believe that his cousin is in a relationship with a vampire.In this world vampires exist among the rest of humanity. Their stat [...]

    9. It is the year 2034; the Middle East war is over and Cole Everett is now a veteran. He moves to Los Angeles to start rebuilding his life and hopefully reconnect with his cousin Sean Martin, a private investigator. He is not sure that he can when he learns that Sean’s mate is a vampire. The world knows of vampires but Cole is not sure how anyone can sleep with one. That is until he meets Sean’s mate Arturo and Arturo’s boss, Rafael Barrantes. Meeting Rafael has Cole rethinking everything he [...]

    10. Another OTT, kind of ridiculous, yet fun and sexy story. Not my normal cup of tea but it's a nice piece of escapism with a touch of action and suspense. It appears the author built his world based on current events and extrapolated 20 years into the future. Then added vampires! It's a little illogical at times, like the vampires not using their faster-than-the-human-eye speed to prevent some events butterary license and directing the story to a satisfying ending. Just fun. Try not to take it so [...]

    11. I loved this book. I literally thought that I wanted to read the next book in the series but this one just came out not that long ago. I found that Cole having a prejudice against vampires and then he ended up being mated to one then turned into one was funny. You could tell that Cole had his demons and I'm glad that Rafael understood this. I wish I had my own Rafael. He was gentle and attentive. I'll probably be reading this book again.

    12. Book 2 in the series, I loved The Vampire and the PI. This second book can be read as a stand alone, but is better appreciated in order. Cole is Sean's cousin and a completely different type of man, he's military and damaged and just a bit opinionated. Rafael is a master Vampire. After a shaky start these two are a joy together, there is action, adventure and HEAT! It's nice to see Cole and Arturo again and I hope there will be another in the series so we can keep up with these guys.

    13. 2.5 stars. Unfortunately, this second book in the series was not nearly as engaging as the first one. Everything felt incredibly rushed and the mystery plot did not compensate for it.
