Dying for a Bite by Marie Booth

Estelle’s a sweet Southern girl with lots of spirit but low self-esteem when it comes to her very curvy body. When she’s seduced and bitten by two of the sexiest, most desirable vampires in Shortfalls, Georgia, her sexuality’s coming alive for the first time. Thanks to the two sexy hunks she’s living with, she discovers her erogenous zones are her favorite highway to heaven. Could un-life get any better?

Nathaniel enjoyed seducing bloody gorgeous Estelle, but when her charms worked their magic on him, he lost control and bit her. Now he’s her maker, responsible for her training. While he plans to enjoy every minute of Estelle’s sexual instruction, particularly sharing her with the love of his life, Maurice, Maurice is not as enthusiastic.

When Estelle intrudes on his perfect life with Nathan, Maurice is not happy. Sure, the woman’s body is easy to arouse and enjoy – he has to admit – but he’s now determined to take back control. The fangs are coming out and so are the cuffs.

But when danger strikes their nest in the form of a rival gang, Estelle, Nathaniel and Maurice learn they’re bound together by more than sex and blood.

Hmmm... This book was a bit all over the place for me. There was so many times when I felt like the book should be coming to a close, but it didn't. The pacing felt... off to me I suppose is the best way to say it. Instead of everything building up together it was like Issue #1 comes up, quickly handled and settled and then Issue #2 is brought up, quickly handled and resolved.

Then there was the fact that things that were HUGE and should've been monumental were sort of just shrugged off and moved on from.

The main focus of the book was on the three-way relationship, which is good, but then the rest of the book distracted from that and the way it was developing.

However, that being said, I found it easy to read except for the sudden ends for parts of the story only to start a new threat/subject of interest. I liked each character individually, however, I found as a trio they were a bit clumsy and didn't really connect in my opinion. Sure adding a third after it being only two for so long is bound to be hard, but I really only felt the connection when it was two of them (either Essie and Nathan, Nathan and Maury, or Maury and Essie).

I grew up in Hollywood, California in a house constructed of old movie sets. No lie. My mom used to bang out TV scripts for old time shows like Sea Hunt and Bonanza. She was a creative soul who wrote from her heart and I’ll always consider her my muse. I’ve been writing for the last six years and have also worked as a stage manager, costume designer and production manager for several NYC community theatre companies while raising two amazing daughters who inspire me every day.

Why do I write paranormal romance instead of another genre? Because the moment I opened one of the original Wizard of Oz books, I became a fantasy freak, and then it was only a matter of time before I turned my eyes toward the other sex and started reading romance. From that moment the two blended together for me in a very delicious way. I have ten paranormal fantasy/paranormal romance books self-published under my real name, Gayle Parness.

“Dying for a Bite” is a first for me on many levels. It’s the first book I’ve written under my pen name, Marie Booth, it’s my first book with Loose Id and it’s the first ménage book I’ve ever written. It will not be the last. I’ve had more fun with Estelle, Maury and Nathaniel than I deserved and I intend to foray into the wilds of the shapeshifter community with my next ménage romance. Thank you, Loose Id staff, for taking a chance on a blended genre book.

I love to hear from readers and fellow authors so visit me and say hi!
