Riley Jenson gets a fairly decent introduction, where she saves a bunch of humans from vampires despite the fact that she is utterly terrified Physically strong, but emotionally normal Identifiable Believable.And then the entire book goes to hell.Instead of focusing on the fact that her twin is missing for the first half of the novel, Riley puts on a brave face and gets on with the day to day Huh Why isn t she curled up in a ball sobbing Why isn t she taking off the heads of people getting Riley Jenson gets a fairly decent introduction, where she saves a bunch of humans from vampires

in her way to find him Why isn t this taking up her every waking moment Because she is horny that s why The moon is calling to her, so she must have sex right now, and I mean rightnowmusthaveGRR In Arthur s world, all werewolves spend a week a month having non stop sex with anyone until they meet their one true love Uh huh Sure How very practical.But whatever So she is sleeping around while searching for the most important person in her life I can get over that My issue is with the, er, three times Riley was forced to have sex because she was drugged kidnapped on a mission Apparently, this is only slightly unacceptable in Riley s deluded mind Why Because with the insane plot device that is the moon heat she would have been unable to say no anyways So really, it isn t too big a deal.And when it s all over, is she overcome by her desire for revenge Nope When she is betrayed, physically and emotionally, by people she trusted for years does she feel the need to visit a shrink and let all her emotions pour out Of course not that would be completely against her lack of character.Honestly Despite 300 odd pages in her POV, I don t know Riley One minute she is all touchy feel oh gosh, I hate to kill the next she is eagerly dressing up as a prostitute while psychically forcing two guys to rape each other and no I don t care if they deserved it What was going on in that fictional brain of hers, who knows Although I imagine if I had, this review would have been significantlyexplicit.http deadbookdarling.com 2009 08 re This is not a great book It s a little like porn for the ladies, lots of down there hormones working over time I did like the character enough to pick up all of them, I m in a pretty trashy mood, but not the first Urban Fantasy series I d recommend I do have to say her writing gets better and better as the series goes on, much less clumsy, so I ll be sticking with this series OK, Weird shit is happening people Between reading all 6 books of this series one after another, forgetting to get up in the morning to go to work i don t know does it count as forgetting, if you have 4 alarms and you don t hear any of them because you were awake reading till 5.40 am and had to get up at 8 and then realising it makessense to stay home and read until all the books are over, i think I ve lost perspective on other important things in life Like making

instant noodles and 9 month old dark chocolate.So, coming to the book The book was better than the blurb described it to be.This one is about a bitchy smart mouthed werewolf Riley who works for the Directorate which is an agency that looks at all the non human affairs She a dhampire funky name, Yes which is a cross breed between a Werewolf and a vampire Her brother is kidnapped and she s in heat Enter sexy Vampire and a plot with her sex partners trying to get her pregnant and that s the story A rare hybrid of vampire and werewolf, Riley Jenson and her twin brother, Rhoan, work for Melbourne s Directorate of Other Races, an organization created to police the supernatural races and protect humans from their depredations While Rhoan is an exalted guardian, aka assassin, Riley is merely an office worker until her brother goes missing on one of his missions The timing couldn t be worse More werewolf than vampire, Riley is vulnerable to the moon heat, the weeklong period before the full moon, when her need to mate becomes all consumingLuckily Riley has two willing partners to satisfy her every need But she will have to control her urges if she s going to find her brotherEasier said than done as the city pulses with frenzied desire, and Riley is confronted with a very powerful and delectably naked vamp who raises her temperature like never beforeIn matters carnal, Riley has met her match But in matters criminal, she must follow her instincts not only to find her brother but to stop an unholy harvest For someone is doing some shifty cloning in an attempt to produce the ultimate warrior by tapping into the genome of nonhumans like Rhoan Now Riley knows just how dangerous the world is for her kind and just how much it needs her I tried this, the first Riley Jensen novel by Keri Arthur, but couldn t get into it I m realizing I m really not a huge fan of Urban Fantasy I need a Happily Ever After with one hero heroine to root for the bed hopping ala Laurel K Hamilton s Anita Blake series makes me insane and this story was stacking up the same way.I also had a hard time connecting with Riley So passing on this series DNF Incredibly sexy Action packed suspense Full Moon Rising is a crossbreeding of J.D Robb meets Anita Blake meets Mercy Thompson This book is positively FABULOUS and I m super excited about reading the book that is glances to my right waiting ever so impatiently for my sweetest attention Ugh.Seriously, ugh.This reads like an Anita Blake novel, very late in the series when things had devolved into constant sex with only a thin approximation of plot This entire novel was about how bad Riley needed sex, who she was going to get it from, and if she didn t get it soon, bad things were going to happen If the sentence I didn t really want him to touch me, but the way I was burning right now, I might have no choice or something similar occurred less than 20 times in this book, I d Ugh.Seriously, ugh.This reads like an Anita

Window dressing for the sex, basically.Why do people love this series so much Seriously, WTF
