Blood Eclipse (Blood Eclipse #1)

Vampires have come “out of the closet” and they’re buying up real estate and running brothels in the City of Angels. Rory bitterly hates vampires. After all, one of them murdered his friend. So when his best friend Dennis begs him to accompany him to a vampire brothel on his birthday so that he can experience what is widely believed to be the sex of his life, Rory tags along reluctantly.

Rory and Dennis both find their worlds changed forever as the sun goes down on Eclipse. As they enter the er…revamped Magic Castle, they discover sex, love and blood can mix. Dennis finds himself falling in love with the mysterious Thiago and Rory is taken by Carden who is so beautiful, Rory isn’t even sure if he’s real…but evil is everywhere, permeating everything as the night closes in around them.


From Literary Nymphs:

Blood Eclipse is the first book in A.J. Llewellyn’s and D.J. Manly’s Eclipse series. Rory has witnessed the destructive power of vampires firsthand, and has little faith that any of them are trustworthy. When he finds himself drawn to Carden it is both a frightening and exciting experience. Carden is strong of mind, body, and spirit but something is making his life difficult and he finds himself in a terrible position when he meets Rory. With all the danger and evil surrounding him, he doesn’t want Rory to become a casualty. Their attraction oozes over the pages like hot butter. Their ferocious appetite for each other had me fanning and hoping Carden could change Rory’s mind about vampires, indefinitely. This couple could become more powerful than anyone expects, and could tilt the balance in the favor of good. I loved their interaction, as well as that between Dennis and the vampire he is enthralled with, Thiago. This first installment delivers a solid background and propels us towards the next episode longing to find out what happens next between the main characters. The series is off to a fantastic start and I’m anxious to read the next book in the Eclipse series. 5/5 Nymphs. Reviewed by Scandalous Minx.


Dennis waited in the bedchamber. It was lavishly decorated with soft furnishings in charcoal, black and white. The filmy black curtains on either side of the Juliet-style windows were tethered back against the wall with whips–a kind of bizarre touch he thought. He gazed out of the open windows at the lights blinking over the Hollywood Hills and across west Los Angeles. It was a rare smogless night and he could see a plane’s taillights sinking down as it landed at LAX.

He suddenly felt afraid. He was excited, but afraid, yes. He realized he was out of his depth here. He’d done some crazy things for a sexual high. Was this going too far? Should I just go for a mere mortal and be sensible for once?

No. He’d come too far, passed all the requirements. He’d paid his entrance fee and loved his choice of partner’s sleek exotic look. He wanted to be able to say, Hell yeah, I fucked a vampire. It was great!


He looked up from the canopied bed. “Number Six. That’s who I want.”

The regulator gave him a knowing smile. “He won’t be long.”

Dennis felt an extrasensory thrill knowing he’d just ordered a man, well, a vamp, as easily as ordering a hamburger.

He lay back on the bed in anticipation.

Number Six opened the door and his beautiful, strange eyes met Dennis’ rapidly blinking gaze head-on. Number Six was wearing a red silken robe barely meeting his thighs and Dennis gulped when he glimpsed the gigantic cock peeking through the folds. Even half-hard, the vampire was huge. Can I do this? Really?

“Don’t be nervous,” Number Six said.

Suddenly Dennis felt himself relaxing, even though this was the hottest man he’d ever seen in his life. “What is your name?” Dennis asked, surprised his voice actually worked.

The vampire smiled and Dennis was aware of the glistening sheen of oil on the man’s skin as the red robe fell. His beauty filled Dennis’ senses with awe. The vampire was waxed completely, save for his treasure trail leading to a smattering of hair on his crotch. His cock was hardening now as he leaned down and removed Dennis’ black boxer briefs. He dropped to his knees, sucking the tip of Dennis’ hungry cock into his mouth. Just the sensation of this remarkable creature touching him made Dennis cry out with pleasure.

He lay there in shock and increasing pleasure as he felt the hot, wet mouth closing down over the entire shaft.

“Oh, fuck yeah, suck me.” He felt the sensation of something cold pressed against his perineum and felt around until his fingertips touched an ice cube. He felt the sensation of one hell of a goddamn orgasm building fast behind his own pubic mound. It ripped through his groin and up and down his spine. His toes flared out and he came in the hot, exotic mouth, screaming his ecstasy to the blinking lights outside.
