5 FALLEN ANGELS: "Miles is on his way home from work and has the creepy feeling that he is being followed even though he doesn't see anything. When he is almost home, a mysterious man, Ben, appears telling him that if he wants to stay alive he had better get them home as fast as he can. Miles doesn't usually bring strangers home, but for some reason he trusts Ben and it helps that Miles finds him to be the sexiest man he has ever seen! Once they are safe, Ben tells Miles that he is in danger of becoming vampire food or being forced to mate with a Warrior of the dark, Malcolm. Miles thinks he is crazy until sees five strange men standing outside his apartment building and one is looking directly at him, Malcolm. Ben is a Warrior of the light, also a vampire, who is fighting to protect humanity, but when he realizes that Miles is his mate, his mission changes. Ben was sent to capture Malcolm at all costs, but now his desire to protect Miles overrides his father's orders. Ben knows that his father has a hidden agenda, but when he tells him to use Miles as bait to capture Malcolm all bets are off. Malcolm is determined to get Miles for the power he will gain from their mating and Ben will protect him at all costs. Add to this insanity Miles's cousin, Trevor, who always has a snarky comment ready to unleash, keeping the story rocking. Will Miles find the happiness and love he always wanted? This incredibly intricate story created what looks to be an awesome series. Miles's creepy feeling of being watched is one many people have without it being true. Unfortunately, Miles was correct about the danger and he was lucky Ben was there to help him. I can't imagine how I would react if someone told me he was a vampire, but when Miles became aroused by Ben's fans it was hysterical. I would have run screaming, but not Miles! Trevor's forceful and loud presence astounded the vampires because they were used to people cowering in front of them and never challenging them! Miles's loving and friendly attitude endeared him to each of the Warriors of the Light. Malcolm was the polar opposite to Miles with his evil and hateful actions that pit them against each other, but who will survive is yet to be told. I enjoyed how each character came to life in this book and I can't wait to read their stories as they unfold." -- Teresa, Fallen Angel Reviews

4.5 RAVENS: "What can I say about Mile’s Awakening by the wonderful AJ Jarrett? Well tons! I’m relatively new to the m/m scene but have found that I have quite the appetite for this genre and I will definitely be reading more of Ms. Jarrett’s work. I will say Mile’s Awakening isn’t for the faint of heart as some of the scenes are a bit rougher than what the average reader would probably expect – including a forced seduction of one of the characters. While it didn’t bother me in the least bit, I found it did further the story and deepened the relationship later in the story. The sex scenes in Mile’s Awakening definitely sizzle with both heat and passion. Ben is at times both dominant and caring when it comes to his mate. I found myself cheering on Ben and wanting to find the closest sharp object to skewer Malcolm because that’s how much I hated him. Ms. Jarrett definitely has a flare for creating characters which are utterly believable and even “human” despite being vampires. As I mention before, I will be on the look out for more of these books from the delightful Ms. Jarrett. In fact, I’m hoping that she can be persuaded to write a story for Mile’s cousin. If I beg real nicely – do you think I have a chance?" -- Tamara, Black Ravens Reviews

Story Excerpt


Miles looked over his shoulder as he quickly walked down the sidewalk. He could swear someone was following him. It didn’t help that it was midnight, black as pitch, and no one else was out walking the streets in the little college town of Columbia, Missouri, this late at night. He was all alone on Hilltop Street. Miles never thought his little town a scary place to live, but over the last few days, he couldn’t shake the feeling of being watched.

“Thank god.” Miles breathed a sigh of relief when his apartment complex came into view. He got his key out on the ready, so he could get in the outer door as fast as he possibly could.

More than likely he was just overreacting and freaking himself out, but it was late and bad things always seemed to happen at night on deserted streets. He had heard all the horror stories of how unsuspecting people were taken by surprise, raped, and murdered, never to be heard from again.

A shudder ran through Miles’s body. He really had to stop watching scary movies if this was going to happen every time he got a little spooked.

He was a block away when he felt someone walk up beside him. It took everything he had not to wet himself right on the spot. Maybe he should have paid better attention to those movies because then his dumb ass wouldn’t have been out here all alone in the middle of the night. Miles finally understood the meaning of frozen in fear, because he couldn’t do anything but focus on his steps. Why didn’t he take that ride from Garrett?

“Just keep walking, kid. I’m not going to hurt you, but we need to get to your apartment like five minutes ago.”

The man placed his arm around Miles’s shoulders, and oddly enough, what fear he felt faded away. The sound and touch of this stranger seemed to calm his frazzled nerves. But why?

Miles tried to shake the weird feeling away and focus on the matter at hand. The man wanted to come back to his place as if Miles had a steady stream of unknown visitors to his home all the time. He turned to look at the other man and tensed at the jolt of lust that ran through his body. The calm feeling now mixed with an uncontrollable attraction he couldn’t explain. The man was absolutely gorgeous, and as crazy as it may sound, Miles felt drawn to him as if by an invisible string tying him to the man. The same string must be tied to his dick as well since it started to lengthen and reach toward the handsome stranger.

The man stood at least a foot taller than him, bulky with what Miles assumed was muscle under his leather jacket and tight black jeans. His hair was a deep caramel blond with sun-kissed highlights layered in, causing his tan skin to glow. With all elements combined, it rounded out the package to make for one sexy-as-hell man. 

What struck Miles the most were the piercing blue eyes the man had. They made him think of ice on a frozen lake. There was a coldness there that made him want to wrap a blanket around himself as to not be bitten by the bitter cold that swirled in the blue depths.

Miles gave a sharp shake of his head, trying to clear his thoughts of the sexy man herding him like a sheep to his apartment. “Excuse me, I hate to be rude, but what makes you think I will let you into my apartment?” It was a halfhearted attempt at anger because right now his dick was standing at full salute and he wouldn’t mind getting a little dirty with the man if he could find out for sure he just didn’t escape from a mental hospital.

“I think you will because you want to live and I’m the one who is going to be able to protect you.”

Wait a minute. Did he just say protect him? Protect him from what? Did he want to live? Fuck yes, he wanted to live. His hard-on died a quick death. “Dude, you’re freaking me out here. What do you mean, want to live and protect me? Is all this a trick to get into my apartment?” Miles’s eyes traveled the length of the man’s body. Then he met the guy’s eyes. “Don’t get me wrong. You’re a really hot guy, but, dude, I don’t even know you.”

“Listen, I will answer all your questions once we’re in your apartment. I promise, but right now, sweet face, we need to get to your apartment before they attack.”




Ben pushed Miles down to lie flat on the bed. He gripped the fastening on his pants and divested Miles of his jeans. His breath got caught in his throat at the sight of seeing his mate completely naked for the first time.

Miles might have been thin, but his body was cut with muscle definition. His bones still stood out, but the flesh draped over his body, molded to tight, well-defined muscle. Ben traced a finger down Miles’s bare chest, and Miles’s body trembled under his touch.

As his finger trailed lower, it bumped the leaking head of Miles’s cock. He smeared the pre-cum around the sensitive tip and worked his hand down lower to jerk the impressive erection that lay within his fist.

“More, I need more.” Miles squirmed on the bed.

Ben grabbed the upper part of Miles’s thighs and spread the man’s legs further apart to make room for his shoulders. Once in place, he licked a path up the underside of the heavy cock that rested against Miles’s lower abdomen. He marked a path along the thick veins running the length. When he reached the swollen head, he sucked the soft tissue into his mouth. He hummed loudly around the head. The delicious taste of Miles made his taste buds tingle.

He bobbed his head up and down and reached his hands upward to tweak at the pebbled peaks of Miles’s nipples. He pinched and twisted the hardened nipples and reveled in the heavy panting coming from his mate’s mouth.

Ben swallowed around the swollen head one more time before pulling off with a hard suck to the inflamed cock. He licked a path up Miles’s torso, stopping to tease the hard nipples sticking out for him to taste. When he reached Miles’s neck, he breathed in deeply, loving the scent of turned-on man and sweat.

“Let me make you feel good, Miles.” Ben rose up to rest on his elbows to stare down into Miles’s eyes. “Let me make love to you.”

Miles’s hard swallow was audible to his ears. “Will this make us mated?”

Ben’s eyes shut. The uncertainty he heard in his mate’s voice hurt his heart. He knew he shouldn’t expect Miles to agree to a mating until he knew all the facts, but he wanted Miles to want him the way he wanted Miles.

“No, baby. It won’t.” He rolled off Miles and sat up.

“Hey, Ben, don’t do that.” Miles’s thin fingers wrapped around his biceps, holding him still. “It’s not that I don’t want to be your mate, it’s just I need some time to process everything.” Miles grinned up at him. “Is that okay? Because if it is, I would really like to have sex with you.”

Ben watched as Miles reached between them and stroked his cock. Miles was seducing him with his very presence. Ben stood up beside the bed to shuck his pants. It was flattering to see Miles’s hand still as he got his first view of Ben’s body. He loved the way his mate ate up the sight of him.

“Lube and condoms are in the top drawer right there,” Miles said as he kept his gaze locked on Ben’s dick.

He smiled as he knelt next to the bed to look Miles in the eye. “We don’t need condoms. The immortal vampire thing kind of makes them pointless since I can’t catch human diseases.”

Miles’s lips curled at the corners. “Not that I don’t believe you, but I still haven’t had any proof you’re actually a vampire.”

True, Miles had a point. Praying he didn’t scare his little mate into unconsciousness again, he smiled, lifting his upper lip. He concentrated and let his fangs drop down. The fear he expected never came. Miles raised up to get a better look. Even more impressive was that Miles brought a finger up to touch the pointed tip. The slight touch curled Ben’s toes. The link between his dick and fangs had always been there, even more when it was his mate stroking the sharpened teeth.

“I can’t explain why I’m not freaking out right now, but seeing your teeth is turning me on even more.” Miles’s eyes darted up to his. “Is that normal?”

Ben reached in the drawer for the lube and sat back between Miles’s legs. “It is for mates, Miles.” He popped the cap on the lube and coated his fingers in the clear gel, holding Miles’s stare as he pushed one large finger between Miles’s cheeks and tapped at his back door. “So do I have permission to make love to my mate properly without any barriers between us?” Miles nodded his head.

Ben took his time stretching his mate. The mewling sounds Miles made were driving him insane with need. If he waited any longer, he would lose his mind, but he had to make sure Miles was prepared for him. His cock wasn’t gigantic, but it was larger than the average male’s. He would know. After living for over twelve hundred years, he’d seen plenty of cocks to compare to.

When Miles started to beg, Ben removed the three fingers he had inside Miles’s ass and drizzled more lube on his engorged shaft. The simple task of rubbing the liquid on his cock nearly had him coming like an untried youth.

Ever so slowly, he moved forward. Miles grabbed the back of his legs to pull them up to his chest, giving Ben better access for entry into his ass. The view was sublime to Ben’s eyes. Miles’s hole shined from the lube and twitched as Ben brushed his cock against the tight muscle. Using his hand, he guided his prick to the small opening and pushed through the gripping muscle.

Ben clenched his jaw tight as the smoldering heat of Miles surrounded him. He stopped halfway inside Miles and had to do all he could not to come on the spot. Miles didn’t give him a choice on the matter for long. His mate dropped the hold on his legs and brought his hands up to push against the headboard. Before he knew what was happening, Miles speared himself the rest of the way onto Ben’s cock. They both gasped at the sensation.

“Fuck me,” Miles said breathlessly.
