My Favorite Husband (Vampire in Waikiki #5)

You can steal a man’s heart…you can steal his wallet, but stealing his car…that’s just asking for trouble. Waikiki Vampire Divine Thunder and his husband Tem thought that going to hell and back – literally – was an ordeal. Now they’re home and things are a mess – even Div’s precious car, which he calls his other husband has been stolen. Picking up the pieces of their half-demolished home, they find themselves in the middle of a new and weird mystery. They’ve hired an art historian who’s a real weirdo and somebody keeps pinching their good wine and leaving booby traps in their garden.

They hire Francois, a big, beautiful black security expert to get to the bottom of the twisted things going on in the Thunder household. But wait…what the heck is going on? They keep seeing Div’s car, driven by the thief all over the island. This is gonna give a whole new meaning to thunder in paradise…


Review by Christy Duke, Rainbow Book Reviews

Ah, the vamps in Waikiki! Such a fun series that I tend to like quite well. ‘My Favorite Husband’ is book five in A.J. Llewellyn’s ‘Vampire in Waikiki’ series and it’s fun, quirky, sexy, and has some action thrown in. There’s been a lot that has happened in the previous four books, including Tem and Jimmy’s nephew who is part vampire and part storm demon, a visit to hell, an exciting Christmas, and visits from family. Never boring I tell you!

Their latest disaster revolves around Jimmy’s much loved (seriously, much loved) 1965 Lincoln Continental which was stolen from the library parking lot they left it in when they took their trip to hell. Except that’s not all that’s going on here. Oh boy. When Tem was abducted and taken to hell, many of their priceless artifacts in their home were damaged or destroyed. On the recommendation of Jimmy and Tem’s sommelier, they’ve hired a renowned art restorer, Gideon, to handle this task. Jimmy despises the man and, personally, I thought he was pretty shady and slimy.

As always, much excitement and a whole lot of sex was going on in this book. It was fun to see Francois appear as Jimmy and Tem’s security expert. If you follow this author’s work, then you’ll know Francois for the ‘Mingo McCloud’ series. The bad guys were caught, Francois saved the day, and I’m not telling what happened about Jimmy’s car. Thank you, A.J.

5/5 Kisses from

AJ Llewellyn had me laughing from the jump. I began this series in the middle and am looking forward to going back and reading the others. It is apparent that this long-running series is a definite need for my shelf. Not only was the author able to create such great characters, he infuses so much humor in the life of a vamp, that it surely must be as chaotic. Yet in all the chaos, a deep love shines, and grows. I fell in love with Div and Tem, sighed over François and wanted to adopt the cat.

5 out 5 Nymphs from Literary Nymphs:

This, the fifth book in the author’s A Vampire in Waikiki series, not only brings back the sexy Div and Tem, but also the rest of their crazy family. From the very first page you are drawn into a story that picks up not long after the last one ends. As the two men try to return to some kind of normal life, they once again have to deal with unknown enemies. Even with the ongoing turmoil in their lives, the love these two have for each other is strong. The author has such a way with words that it is very easy for the reader to see the deep love Div and Tem have not only for each other but also for those they care about. As always, the sex between these two is intense and page burning.

The author not only does an excellent job with the characters, but also in his detailed background descriptions. Set in Waikiki, the history, culture, and people – both past and present – that the author brings into the story help bring it to life for the reader. I often think that should I ever make it to the islands, I am using this series for my travel guide. This book is an excellent addition to the series and I hope we see more soon.
