A Siren Erotic Romance
5 CHERRIES: "In the fourth installment of the Marius Brothers series, Ms. Flynn has definitely put together a dynamic due. She has paired a vampire warrior with his sworn enemy, a demon. This was a pairing that had me wanting to read Victor immediately. Victor Marius is an eight hundred and ninety-five year old vampire without a mate. To say he’s extremely lonely is an understatement. Just when he thinks he won’t ever find his mate, he finds one smoldering on the side of the road. Victor is a little taken back on how to accept his new found mate, who happens to be a demon. Vampires and demons are like oil and water, they don’t mix, but when Victor is with Malachi all he wants to do is love him and to make up for Malachi’s difficult past. Malachi is a victim of circumstances. He didn’t choose the life he has been forced to live, but it’s all he’s ever known. Born into the world of demons all he’s ever experience is cruelty. Malachi is an amazing character. After suffering years of abuse, he still has the ability to love and trust. His past doesn’t define who he is and when he meets Victor he’s ready for a fresh start with no looking back. Victor and Malachi becoming mates is only part of this story, the other is the reaction from Victor’s family. It was interesting to see how this half demon was going to be accepted into this family. It was surprising to see some of the reactions Malachi received, and who they came from was a little shocking as well. There are individuals in this family who have suffered violence at the hands of demons and that is clouding their acceptance of Malachi. It’s heartwarming to see how this family works together to heal the wounds of the past. The Marius family is one of love, respect, and loyalty. Once a part of their inner circle, no one gets left out or left behind. Victor is a passionate love story between two men from completely different backgrounds but are wanting the same things out of life, love and acceptance. If you’re looking for a story that will bring a tear to your eye one minute and having you fanning your face the next from the very descriptive love scenes, this is the story for you. Victor is an excellent addition to this series and a must read." -- Coreopsis, Whipped Cream Reviews
4.5 NYMPHS: "Victor hates the fact that he is jealous of his brothers because they seem to be finding their mates. He hopes his day will come soon but doesn’t expect to find his mate while on a mission for the Council. Or that his mate will turn out to be part demon. I loved this fourth addition to the Marius Brothers series. Victor is told in the first person, which is a change from the previous stories. It is also one of the reasons I enjoyed this book so much. It not only gave the series a breath of fresh air but it allowed the reader to learn new tidbits about some of the previous characters we have come to know. As for Victor and Malachi, the author could not have formed a more perfect couple. Victor is the oldest of the Marius boys and from the moment of each of his brother’s births, he has pledged to protect them, something his brothers never realized. His size and strength, as well as the fact that he comes across as very cold, has made him feared by many of the other vampires. The author wrote the perfect mate for Victor in Malachi. This is a young man who has had an extremely rough life. His need to be loved and protected meshes perfectly with Victor's need for a mate to cherish. While the mating bond calls to each of them, their joining is not the typical happy event, due to Malachi’s background. The angst that their mating causes, not only within Victor and Malachi, but also other members of the Marius family, comes through clearly, and while I could understand the reactions of some of Victor’s family members, I was disappointed in their behavior. The connection between Victor and Malachi is strong, however, and I loved that these two finally realized just how much in love they really were, even in such a short period of time. With the appearance of several members of the Marius clan, as well as the unexpected appearance of a new family member, there is plenty to keep the reader happy while they await further additions to this series." -- Critter Nymph, Literary Nymphs Reviews
4 CUPS: "Joyee Flynn always throws the reader a curve ball, but this time the curve ball is left for one of the characters. Victor is the embodiment of a big brother and throughout the series has stood by his brothers and their mates. In this story, I found I wanted to scream at Victor’s family because they are so callous and selfish. Despite the resentment, I found myself sympathetic to them all and thoroughly enjoyed the story of the eldest Marius brother. I am always excited to read a Joyee Flynn novel but the Marius Brothers stories are the best."-- Delane, Coffee Time Romance
What the fuck?
As I got closer, I saw steam coming off the small, barely clothed, and beaten body. Approaching slowly and cautiously, I almost jumped when the man rolled over and looked at me. Shit, he was a demon.
“Wait,” he croaked out when I raised my gun. “I’ve never killed anyone, warrior. I swear it to you! I was born this way.”
“Demons are dead, they can’t have children,” I growled as something else hit me at the same time. While his blood smelled somewhat rancid, it called to me, smelling sweet at the same time. Fuck! This man was my mate!
“M–my mother was pregnant when she became a demon.” He gasped, holding his side. “I escaped, but the sun was too much for me. I’ve never hurt a living soul in my life or even drank from a human. They’ve kept me prisoner since the day I was born. Please, help me. I can’t go back there.”
“That’s not possible,” I whispered, feeling the draw to my mate. I desperately wanted to believe him, and there were signs that he wasn’t a full demon. He was still alive in the sun even if his skin was smoking, and he had a nasty-ass sunburn. The man also didn’t have the typical red eyes of a demon, they were midnight blue. “What is your name?”
“Malachi Owens,” he answered, his eyes filling with tears as he kept gasping for breath. “You’re my mate, aren’t you? You smell so sweet to me, and it’s not just from thirst, because I can tell the difference. Please, if I was a soulless demon, I wouldn’t have a mate.”
“You try anything and I will end you, mate or not. Are we clear?”
“Yes, I’m too weak and starved to hurt you,” Malachi whimpered. I eyed him over, taking in his bright eyes, small button nose, plush lips, and sort of chubby cherub cheeks. He was gorgeous, even in his dirty state, and I felt myself get hard. I guessed he was no more than five-five and under a hundred pounds. My instincts were screaming to hold my mate, feed him massive amounts of food, and take care of him.
“Okay,” I said with a nod as I tucked my gun in the back of my pants. I closed the gap between us, bent down, and lifted him into my arms. Malachi felt perfect in my embrace, like he was destined to be there. He cried out in pain, and I loosened my hold on him. “Sorry, I didn’t mean to hurt you.”
“No, I’m the one who’s sorry,” he whispered in my ear as he wrapped his arms around my neck.
“For what?” I asked, completely confused as I walked back to the rental car.
“For this,” Malachi answered and sunk his fangs into my neck.
I cried out as my cock instantly exploded in my jeans from my mate drinking from me, as vast pleasure swarmed me. It was so intense I almost fell to my knees and dropped him, but I was able to keep myself upright and leaned against the car. I kept coming and coming, shooting so much seed in my jeans that I didn’t know my balls could carry that much.
“Now you won’t kill me,” he whispered as he licked his bite. “But you won’t love me ever, either, for doing this to you.”
“Probably not,” I snarled as I came back down from my orgasm. “You know mating without someone’s permission is a death offense.”
“No, I didn’t know that,” Malachi said as I opened the passenger’s door and gently put him inside. “I literally have lived in a cave all my life. I know nothing about anything except I’ve fought to survive all these years, and while I never wanted my mating to be that way, I want to live.”
“Cave? I was sent here by our Council to investigate claims of demons living in the Mohegan Bluffs.”
I closed the door and walked around to the other side before he could answer, giving him time to think about what I said while I had a moment to digest that I was now mated. Leaning my head against the top of the car, I felt a pit of despair form in my stomach. I’d waited all of these years to find my mate, desperately wanting to find them. And I was mated to a half demon, which I still wasn’t sure if that was even possible, who just mated me without my consent.
What the fuck?
“You have me, my love,” I said firmly as I poured slick on my hand, rubbed it into my cock, and added more to my fingers. I leaned over him as I moved my hand between his legs and pushed in a finger. Malachi moaned loudly as he grabbed onto my shoulders as we stared into each other’s eyes. “Would you let me have you star in my fantasies, baby?”
“Yes, god, yes,” he purred, his eyes going wide as I pushed in a second finger. My tongue had already loosened his ass up for me to stretch him a little bit quicker than I had thought. “What would you want me to do?”
“Well, I have one fantasy about my mate always wearing a toy in his ass for me. It’s called a butt plug, and it would keep you ready and stretched so anytime I wanted you, I could just bend you over and take you,” I drawled as I nibbled on his lower lip. “I’d stretch you out every morning in the shower while on my knees sucking your gorgeous cock. Then I could play with it and this hot ass that’s mine all day.”
“I like it,” Malachi whispered as a huge smile broke out on his face. “Anything to get your mouth on me every morning.”
“Well, I wouldn’t have you sleep with it in after we made love before bed.” I scissored my fingers inside of him to make room for a third finger. “That would be uncomfortable overnight I think. But that would also give me the excuse to play with you every morning.”
“What else do you fantasize about?” he asked, gasping when I pushed in a third finger.
“You know how I like being your dominant male?” I waited until he nodded before continuing. “There’s a time every once in a while I don’t want to be the dominant one. I want to be the one taken care of and just let go. Does that make sense?”
“Yes, sometimes you want me to take over the control.”
“Exactly,” I whispered against his lips and gave him a soft kiss. “I’ve always had this fantasy that my mate would tie me down to the bed and spend hours making me come with all the toys I’ve been saving for that day. I think it would be hot for you to use vibrators and dildos and all sorts of sexual toys on me.”
“As long as you show me how to use them first.” The little imp winked at me. I growled at the visual I got of Malachi riding my cock while I used a vibrator on his sac and dick. “I’m ready, Victor. I need to feel you inside of me.”
“Oh yeah,” I groaned as I pulled out my fingers. I moved his legs wider as I lined up my cock. Watching his face, I started to push into his hole slowly so I could make sure I didn’t hurt him. His eyes fluttered closed as he let out the mother of all moans and arched his back for me. He looked like an angel, my angel. “Open your eyes, my mate. I want you to see who’s taking your virginity and pleasing you.”
“I know who is whether my eyes are open or not,” Malachi replied as his eyes snapped open. I thrust in and out slowly, letting his ass get used to me before pushing more of my nine plus inch cock inside of him. “I’ve never wanted anyone but you, and I never will.”
“Good, because I’d have to kill anyone else,” I snarled, the idea of anyone being inside my mate making me see red. “No one else ever, baby. I’m a very, very jealous man.”
“No one else, ever.” He agreed firmly as he reached up and cupped my cheek. “I love, want, and desire only you, Victor.”
“I feel the same for you, Malachi.” I gave one last, soft thrust until I bottomed out inside of him. He cried out when I moved his legs over my arms, changing the angle so he took more of me into him. “This is home—being with you like this feels like I’ve come home for the first time.”
“I’m not sure what that means, but I feel as if my soul is complete finally.”
“It means the same thing,” I said before kissing him. Once I knew he was ready and trying to move under me as if silently signaling me to take him, I pulled back out until only the head of my cock remained inside of him. Then I thrust back in gently but faster than I had pulled out. He gasped in my mouth, and I took full advantage and slid my tongue over his.
As if on some primal instinct, Malachi moved his hips up to meet my thrusts. We kept kissing as sounds of our lovemaking filled the room. There were no words that needed to be said right then. Everything we felt was being told in the way our bodies moved. As we both got closer to our orgasms, I started thrusting into him harder and faster.
