Review: Bleed for Me by Cynthia Eden

Bleed for Me
by Cynthia Eden
(Loved by Gods # 1)

I love Ms. Eden’s Angel series, and when I saw a friend reading this on Goodreads, I could not resist.

Ms. Eden did a great job with this Greek-God-finally-meet-his-mate story. Terese Lafitte, a newly turned vamp was in need to feed and wouldn’t you know it, she meets the Sun God, Apollo. And in most books I’ve read including this one, Apollo is portrayed bored and in search of a woman who will leave him enthralled. Terese did just that and brought him to his knees. But Ms. Eden did not make it easy on Apollo; she gives him an obsessive, powerful vampire as a hurdle and makes Apollo work hard to get his Happy-Ever-After (HEA).

It’s a cute short story. The characters and world building are good. You get a good gist of what is going on and you get a good amount of history of Apollo and his fam bam. We get to see a bit of Ares, Artemis and Poseidon, which is a great opening if Ms. Eden decides to write about them. My only complaint, and I always feel this way with short stories, is that there wasn’t enough time for the romance. It felt like it was a wham bam thank you ma’am and then you get the HEA. I would love to see more of this world and definitely would like to see more pages in these books.

Ms. Eden is great writer and I recommend this short for a light quick read as well as her The Fallen series which is one of may faves.

There is a long scary dirt road across from my house. A man hung himself out there several years ago. Sad, but now everyone thinks its haunted. If you Really want to scare someone take them out there. People swear you can still see him hanging. I hate it because I actually drive by the place for 2 days and all I noticed was a car. We called police and they found him. I still have to travel this road daily, but never after dark!

Weird posting by Zippy...and multiples, no less. I think it's intriguing to have a god and a vamp together. And I know what you mean about short stories. Sometimes they do seem to come so quickly to a nice, wrapped up resolution.

Eeek Zippy! That's creepy. And very sad.
I would totally avoid that place.

Catherine, glad you agree. Hort stories are fun but if they end up to be good, you're left needing more. Lol
