Third story in the set of books about the Young Brothers. Loved how both the hero and heroine had to work at making their relationship work. It wasn't just boom and they are together within the first few chapters. Funny, touching and romantic!

3rd in a series and is about the younger playboy bloodsucking brother who loves being a vampire. He hooks up with a vampire who hadn't wanted to be changed but it was consent or be killed. She had been left to die by the one who changed her and never learned how to enjoy being a vampire. Sebastian takes her under his wing and teachers her when he finds out she's part of an organization that has him labeled as the 3rd most dangerous vampire in the city from feasting on humans,etc. So he agrees to not 'feed' and she agrees to let him teach her about being a vampire. Nice story and defense from the 'bad guys' and ends with a HEA and we see the couples from the previous books as well as the lead-in to the 4th book.

Without starting a debate on the pros and cons of vampires and being a loyal member of Team Jacob, I will say that I have been a fan of vampire-themed romance novels for a very long time since I read my first Amanda Ashley novel. Over the years there have been many variations on the vampire theme, which includes humor and some tongue-in-cheek wit and banter. I almost didnt read this book because the last book in this story seemed too campy on the humor for me. Poor Christian went from pretty evil and scary to living in a trailer park listening to country music. Sadly, the story was very cliché and boring for me. So hopefully you will understand why I started this book with deep reservations.

Sebastian Young is a ladies man. He knows the ladies are drawn to him and he uses it to his advantage. He has no intention at all of ending up like his brothers did, head over heels in love and fang whipped. Sebastian owns a nightclub called Carfax Abbey (dont you just love it?) and that keeps him pretty busy anyway so he doesnt have time for any long term commitments. Strange occurrences have been happening at the club and Sebastian believes theres a saboteur among them. First the police, now the Health Department are investigating and Sebastian is determined to get to the bottom of it.

Wilhelmina Weiss is one of the waitresses at Carfax Abbey. She hasnt been there long and she isnt very good at her job, which explains a lot as because being a waitress really isnt her job. Her job is to shut down Carfax Abbey, by any means possible. Shes working undercover at Carfax Abbey for a group called The Society, a group of paranormal creatures who are trying to keep humans safe from the evil vampires of the City and the group has picked Sebastian as the number three most dangerous vampire. Trying to flood the club by starting a fire or creating a health hazard by trying to infest the place with rats are some of the attempts she makes to shut down the club. Luckily for Sebastian, none of them work.

I adored Sebastian. Of all three Young brothers, he is my favorite. He loves being a vampire but isnt evil. He has embraced his immortality with both arms and is living the undead life to the fullest. Unlike his brothers, Sebastian doesnt seem to have any regrets or wastes his time looking in the past. Though hes very charming and appears to be a good guy, there were times I got the impression that he was just going through the motions. His mind seems to be fixated on biting or sex, usually both at the same time. He puts up a good front, but he is lonely. He is intrigued by the new waitress, Wilhelmina, but cant understand why.

I really liked Wilhelmina, though I detest the name. Luckily, Sebastian calls her Mina, which suits her much better, thank goodness. Shes been a vampire for a while, though not as long as Sebastian. One thing I found interesting is that she doesnt seem to know how to be a vampire. She has no idea what it means, what she can do and she goes to great lengths to hide her appearance. She has no sense of style. Her hair is a complete mess and she wears glasses, which she obviously doesnt need. She refuses to drink human blood, even from the blood bank. She hates Sebastian with a passion and that really surprised me. He wasnt the one to change her but yet, hes the target of all of her animosity. Shes carrying extensive emotional baggage. Her crossing over experience was horrifying and its a miracle that she managed to survive.

Sebastian is a surprising character. His curiosity about Mina rises when he learns that she is the one trying to sabotage his club. I expected him to want revenge or have her punished in some way. I mean his brother Christian tried to murder his future sister-in-law, so I thought some evil act on Sebastians part would be making an appearance. Nope. Couldnt be further from the truth. Instead, Sebastian tracks her down and they strike a bargain. He will show her how great it is to be a vampire in exchange for not biting any humans for a month. At this point, you really begin to see the real Mina and understand where shes coming from and witness her excitement and amazement at how different the world is when you open yourself up to it and she couldnt have a better teacher than Sebastian. Her opinion of Sebastian changes drastically and they begin to trust each other, though she is much quicker to opening herself up to that possibility.

In the end, this installment became my favorite of the three. Sebastian is a fun character who isnt afraid to take risks or speak his mind. He learns some important lessons about trust from his brothers, of all people and in his unique way goes after what he wants. Mina is a surprising character from first meeting her all the way to the end. Shes open minded and willing to admit when shes wrong. They make a great couple. I am hoping to read the fourth book in this series this year which is about the sister that Rhys, Christian and Sebastian have thought was dead. I recommend this book and the series for fans of all vampire romance.

I love love love this series!!! Sebastian is my favorite and his love for Mina was true. What I loved about it was that she was scared of what she was and he wanted to show her how great being a vampire!!!

Just like her other two books in the series, this was so fun and comical it reminds me a lot of Kerrelyn Sparks Lovers at Stake Series!! If you love them you will love these books. Sad that there are only 4.

Loved it, this grabbed my attention from the beginning and kept it glued to Sabastion & Mina's story. It took Mina's plain Jane attitude to capture the playboy of the vampires attention to stop his biting & whoring ways to bring him down to a level where he is content with one woman and one woman only. Plus his brothers all agreed that he is totally fang whipped with Mina and is happy to have their brother calmed down. Big surprise at the end of this story, turned out Mina's best friend & roommate is someone people have been looking for and thought dead for a few centuries.
