Lyssa Dering stopping by today with her new release fangjunkie27
One human. One dhampir. Seventy-two hours where anything goes.
Shameless vampire addict Eli spends every waking moment chasing pleasure, securing invites to vampire den after vampire den via the vampire/human social network FangFinder. This weekend, he’s signed up for his most extreme adventure yet, a 72-hour party where a legal contract serves as his voluntary consent to anything and everything the den members decide to do to him…
Strong and silent type Orion is the only member of his den without fangs, a dhampir who wears metal points on two fingers so he can give the human guests what they crave. What he craves is a release for the savage half of his nature; he wants to force a human into submission. When his fellow den members inform him that Eli has signed up for just this treatment, Orion lays claim to him for the weekend.
But Eli would never have agreed to spend three days with a half-breed, and he’ll fight Orion’s touch every chance he gets. Even if the pleasure he finds in the dhampir’s grip is more intense than anything he’s ever felt with a vampire…

Wow! This was…dark, incredible, hot and fiery. I can’t wait to read more from this series. It’s too hot to handle.
As soon as I read the blurb, I knew I just had to read this. Then I saw the cover and it was so drool worthy. As an avid vampire reader, I was so looking forward to a new slant on the old theme and boy, did I get it. It packed a punch, for sure.
Eli is young, full of anxiety, and moving from vampire den to vampire den because he has nowhere else to go and can’t get enough of his vampire-bite fix. On the slip side, Orion is a dhampir with a dark side, a chip on his shoulder and a willingness to see deeper than Eli wants him to. Together, they’re an amazing couple. I couldn’t have asked for more heat, sex, fire and kink between these two.
As Orion discovers, Eli is a “true submissive to a hardcore kink”, but he has a dangerous tendency to get lost in subspace and and go into sub drop. Now, only are these two things incredible important to acknowledge in a BDSM novel, but they’re crafted into Eli’s story so remarkably that I had forgotten that’s what they were until it was pointed it. It all flowed so perfectly into the scenes, making me feel everything and know what was happening. But, when it was remarked upon by Orion, I almost flinched out of my own head space, because I’d forgotten just how dangerous that euphoria could be in the wrong hands.
Eli has had terrible experiences in past BDSM clubs run by humans, none of which knew what after care meant or how to implement it. But Orion does and as he does that, it spreads this beautiful atmosphere over some of the most tense, uncomfortable scenes and draws out the real Eli lurking beneath the junkie monster.
Now, sure, this book deals with a heck of a lot of dark material, but I never felt as though I was being bombarded with it or that they were thrown in just for effect. They were all real, properly explored and revealed and nicely integrated into the sizzling chemistry between Eli and Orion. The couple have such an interesting dynamic that the hunt, the pain play and the spanking are all natural elements of their play time.
I can’t and won’t say more without spoiling it. But, I recommend you buy this book immediately. It’s under a hundred pages, easily read in one to two hours, and will leave you feeling so satisfied that you’d wish every book was so good.
Despite being my first by Dering, I will definitely be coming back for more. I think I’ve just become an addict to the FangFinder series.
“The only thing that kept him going some nights was the promise of those precious minutes being the center of a vampire’s world. Being treated like real prey with Orion had been even better. Gripped, forced, trapped. Adrenaline taking over everything. Living completely in his body instead of his sick head.”
