    1 thought on “Raphael”

    1. You ever find yourself reading a book and all you can think about is how you’re pretty sure you should give a fuck? You keep reading because maybe on the next page you’ll find that fuck you should give. Perhaps it'll be on the next page…nope…the page after that…nope…the page after that…nope. Fifty more pages and still no fucks have been found. Le sigh. It’s frustrating because you’re pretty sure that the book isn’t a bad book and so you stubbornly read on even when it isn’t [...]

    2. Please guys don't be fooled by the ugly cover because this is just one FREAKING AMAZING read. I highly recommend it. It's been a while, but I just knew a read like this one would come along eventually. It's so hard to find good paranormal romance book now a days that once you do you must share it with everybody else,lol. New series as good as this one are hard to find. I just can't thank 'Mistik' enough for the recommendation. THIS IS WHAT I'VE BEEN MISSING! The melancholy, the excess of feeling [...]

    3. **Price drop to $0.99 at US, 8/30/15!****3.5 stars**I liked this book, though I don't know if it is exactly my taste. Raphael is a bad ass vampire, and not just for show. He is a murder-without-remorse, cut-a-bitch kind of vampire. I tend to like my vampires kind of fluffier or mushier or something. This is not that kind of vampire book. I really enjoyed the writing in this book. It was sort of matter of fact, very tight, and had lots of action thrown in. It actually bordered on gory, in my opi [...]

    4. ⋰⋱⋰⋱⋰⋱*It's Raphael*⋰⋱⋰⋱⋰⋱Third re-read: 28.05.2017Hmmm. I had seen this book on my dash, and found myself suddenly re-reading it yet again. Even if I have already read it once this year. It wasn't what I was looking for, at all, but it's Raphael so it's worth it. I'm sure if I'll continue with the re-read of this series though. I kinda want to re-read a book I re-read a couple days a go instead.e Ty.New Rating - 3.5/4 stars.“Would it be so terrible, sweet Cyn?” he wh [...]

    5. 5 lusting for Raphael stars!!!!!!It’s an intense and exciting world D.B. Reynolds has created in Malibu, California “-home to rock-and-roll gods and movie stars, the beautiful, the rich . . . and vampires.” I was sucked (no pun intended) in from the start, and fell madly in lust with the Vampire Lord, Raphael!BlurbPowerful and charismatic, Raphael is a Vampire Lord, one of the few who hold the power of life and death over every vampire in existence. Thousands call him Master and have pledg [...]

    6. I would have given this 5-stars if the author didn't completely betray me with a "to be continued" ending! What the hell? fear my angry wrath!I like my paranormal smutty romance like I like my massages: with a happy ending.See, she gets it!Aside from that, this book was pretty awesome. I loved Cyn and Raphael. I loved the vampire politics and intrigue. I loved the world. this book AND a BLT would be too much yum to handle!Okay, I have to go now because apparently I have to read the next book in [...]

    7. Brilliant!Raphael a Vampire Lord and territory leader of the West Coast is edgy, dark and oh so swoony, he had my underpants melting. He sets the rules and all must obey, if not, face his wrath!Cynthia is a strong heroine and speaks her mind, which makes for interesting and often amusing dialogue.The story is set in the modern times, but with a glimpse of the old, along with the complex rules and hierachy of the Old Ones. It's fast paced and the connection between Cynthia and Raphael, just sizzl [...]

    8. I really enjoyed this vampire romance. The heroine, Cyn, is a strong smart woman who gets involved with the Raphael, Vampire Lord of the western US whenever she helps find a missing vampire as part of her job as a private investigator. Raphael is a very interesting character, as a vampire lord he is strong, arrogant and not afraid of violence to achieve his ends. He is also powerful and sexy, he and Cyn have an instant spark between them that leads to some hot love scenes.The writing was really [...]

    9. OMG this book was a lesson of "how to destroy a potential success book with a lame end"!!! I HATE IT! Calming down calming down ok, now I can explain better.I like this book it's hot! The sex scenes were great! True! When Cyn and Raphael get together you can be certain that will read great and well describe sex. I love the story! It's a little to much dramatic the initial narration (some parts she describe Raphael so potent and scary that I roll my eyes was like a mob not a vampire coven) but it [...]

    10. Excellent start to this vampire series!Lord Raphael rules with an iron fang and he his harsh, but oh so HOT! He has hired Cyn to investigate the recent kidnapping of one of the female vampires under his protection. Cyn is one kick-ass, awesome private investigator, and when the two of them meet sparks fly. This is not your typical paranormal vampire romance series. There is a lot of story that delves into this fascinating and different world. At times it is very cruel, but necessary for the surv [...]

    11. Well, the writing wasn't JR Ward or Kelley Armstrong, but the storyline kept my interest.There were a few plot holes like once Raphael left Cyn to follow up on something. When he did he realized he promised her in on the action. She acted and said things in her head that suggested days had past yet it had only been mere hours based on the timeline.And there is the insta lust. While I felt that completely, I didn't buy Cyn's inner thoughts at the end of the story about Raphael and what he meant t [...]

    12. Cynthia Leighton is a former cop turned private investigator. She’s smart and tough and the fact that she saved a vampire while she was still a cop made her the human P.I. vampires turned to for help. And Cynthia has always welcomed their cases until she’s asked for help in tracking down kidnappers by the very powerful Vampire Lord Raphael. The threat he poses to her health and her hormones seems more dangerous than the humans she must find.Raphael is one of the most powerful vampires in exi [...]

    13. For some reason, I was thinking of this book as some obscure, new author. And after reading her little ditty after the book, I realize that she was very new, as this was her first book. But it sure didn't seem like it. I was really surprised at the world that she has here. She didn't spend a lot of time explaining all of the little details about how vampires came to be and their role in society and how humans deal with them. She simply wrote her book as if they exist, and that's just how it is. [...]

    14. 5 starsFantastic start to a series. Cynthia was kick- ass and Raphael as sexy as a vampire should be. Filled with action and heartache. Off to the next book!

    15. 3.5Really?!?! This is how it ends?Gah, I tried to read as fast as possible to get to see where and how everyone winds up and it ended like this! I need to start the next one :PIt was a pretty nice book, although it took a bit 'til I got caught up in the story, guess that's why I only gave it 3 stars. On the bright side though, this was the first vampire I've found that actually acts like one. He's not that lonely "old" guy who hates his power and who has to suffer for it. No, this guy is badass [...]

    16. Joint review with MaruAlina: Where should we start sexy?Marulett: Mmm. Bad things?Alina: :))Maru: Or things we didn´t like?Alina: How about with: What did you think about the book Maru?Maru: I think it was good, but books 1 and 2 could totally be merged and be book 1. And I wanted more steam Alina: :)) Good pointMaru: How about you?Alina: I liked it, though both characters got on my nerves a little. Let’s talk only about 1 first. then 2.Maru: Always getting ahead of myself back to book 1 then [...]

    17. This read as much like romantic suspense as PNR. The vamps in D.B Reynolds are truly vampires in the truest sense of the word. They are unforgiving, brutal and attuned to their predatory natures as one would expect. No fluff and shimmers here.I really liked this world. Having Malibu as the backdrop worked well in combining the validity with the rumour of vampires existing. People weren't sure whether to believe the fantasy or not, but a few knew the truth. I really liked Cynthia. She was a stron [...]

    18. Rating 3.5I enjoyed the writing, it reminded me of the Guild Hunter series, a powerful vampire master needing the help of our human, kick-ass heroine.The book had heat, violence and the heroine was resourceful and strong. The next book is a continuiation, since the hero and heroine don't end up together in this one.

    19. Warning: This book ends with the words "To be continued" There isn't a cliffhanger per se at the end of the book, but (view spoiler)[Raphael and Cyn's relationship is far from settled in the last pages. (hide spoiler)] That felt off to me, but not enough to ruin the whole story.

    20. 3 Stars!! “He would play her game for now, even let her think she had won.”Cynthia Leighton is an investigator for the west coast vampire community. She is smart, resourceful and good at what she does. When a very old and powerful vampire lord offers her a job- to find his abducted (let’s say).nd (Alexandra)Cynthia has no idea what she is getting herself into. Vampire Lord Raphael is one of the most powerful vampires in the world- absolutely deadly. But even his strength can’t protect hi [...]

    21. 3.5 stars and a promising start to a series that is a new one for me.I liked it, but I found that, rather unusually for a PNR book, there is little to no world building. Vampires exist, humans ‘sort of’ know about them living in their world, but it’s not really talked about. There’s no real background given on the way things are and why, you just jump in and go with the flow. This is probably a positive to readers who find that sort of thing boring, but I like to know all about the world [...]

    22. A new PNR series I can really get into!I am first and foremost an Urban Fantasy fan, so while I read PNR series on occasion they don’t really grip me. Heck, I’m only through book 2 of the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series myself after starting that series months ago, though I do plan to read them all eventually. That said, D.B. Reynolds has done a great job at keeping me engaged all throughout. I have read these books back to back, so I will write a review per day for each one. Not since the F [...]

    23. 4 stars!This book took a while (about half a novel) to get going; it started very slow paced, with very detailed descriptions of the settings in Malibu, Ca (could be worse I suppose!), particularly the interiors and layouts of buildings. I read this for a challenge and at the 50% mark I felt like not much had happened with the plot and was wondering if this would be a DNFFinally, the plot started going somewhere, and the pace picked up. Near the end there was quite a bit of action and a little b [...]

    24. *****SPOILERS*****Raphael is an old master Vampire (as in five centuries and counting old), acknowledged to be the most powerful one in America. When one of his vampires is kidnapped he will enlist Cyn's help in order to find her. Cyn is a PI, born and bred in the high society of Malibu, with a trust fund big enough to not need a work she works for the excitment so when Raphael offers her the job she accepts although she knows she will probably regret it."I could throw you down and have you righ [...]

    25. Not recommended for romance, but very good for a smart female human PI helping vampires solve a kidnappingORY BRIEF: Cyn is a former Los Angeles cop, now working as a private investigator. She's tough, cool, smart, and rich (inherited). When she was a cop, she saved a vampire's life, so now they hire her when they need human help. Alexandra is a vampire who lives with Raphael, lord of the vampires in the western U.S. She is kidnapped by a group of vampires and humans. Raphael hires Cyn to help f [...]

    26. This story reminded me of Nalini Singh's Guild Hunter Series in that the strongest ruled different parts of the world and were in charge of what happened. That wasn't a bad thing, a Nalini is one of my favourite authors.Raphael was a great character. I like my vampires a little bad and mean, and he was. Cyn was a kicka** female lead. I liked her as well.The pace moved along nicely, for both the overall story and the romance. I definitely want to read more of this series. So why only 3 stars? The [...]

    27. Good start to what seems to be a fantastic series. But time will tell for me. I bought this book when it was on offer for 0,99 € I also started it but stopped because then I would have had to buy the second book and well I was a cheap skate at the time. Thanks to a friend of mine I got the others as well. I caved. In the pnr genre I prefer shifters to vamps don’t know why though. This is good but not much difference to what is out there in vamp books. Cyn is a private investigator and has be [...]

    28. Excellent!!!!This one and the next book in the series are really tightly connected.I liked very much the twit about vampire lore.Raphael and Cyn are wonderful together!!! In every way! *wink*The story is interesting and very fast paced with a lot of action and just enough gore to be just right!
