Tonight, Rain Calisto searches for her man, and Rhys Matthews comes into focus. He is well-built and sinisterly sexy. In the same Denver nightclub, Armand Anastasio searches for his woman—Rain. But the men are more than gorgeous. They are vampires, and they are unmated.
A chance encounter lands Rhys and Rain together. Their attraction remains undeniably powerful and they fall prey to lust. With each passionate tryst, Rhys senses a connection that goes beyond the flesh. Unbeknownst to Rhys, Rain is a diabetic. Her insulin alters her biological makeup, disguising a revelation he isn’t quite prepared for.
Rain is Rhys's fated mate.
As they struggle with this knowledge, another bombshell is dropped. Rain’s insulin-laced tissue creates a rare vampiric blood that can fetch a hefty profit, and Armand has always known this. Is his attraction to Rain genuine, or is he just out for her blood?
This is the diary of Rain and Rhys. Recorded here is their transformation from a flesh fantasy to eternal love.
This was one of the most refreshing stories I have read in a long time and was an amazing start to a what looks to be a spectacular series!
Stumbling upon your mate is tricky business, especially if the link is via blood. Rhys is unexplainably drawn to Rain, but they show no signs of being mates -- not that he is looking. He is a good time vampire and has no inclination to settle down. As their relationship is labeled a “utilitarian friendship”, things were never meant to go beyond sex. The problem with this scenario though is that they have mind blowing sex.
Rain Calisto is the perfect heroine. She is thirty-seven, independent, and professional. She is in touch what she wants and needs and has no qualms about getting it. She has determined that the perfect man will be hard to find, but along the way she will have fun kissing a few frogs. Hey, a girl has needs too. Rain and her girlfriends have even developed a fun game to find said frogs: The Junk Trunk. You are going to have to read the book to find out how this game is played.
Rhys Matthews is intense and delicious from the start. Dark, mysterious and dressed all in black, he is a perfect contestant in The Junk Trunk game. His eyes draw Rain in, but with the crook of his finger, Rhys has Rain running to him, changing the whole game.
These are some wild and wonderful vampires. With new abilities and unique characteristics, the were a breath of fresh air. This is a different take on the vampire lore that is enticing and new. Ms. DeLeina has a knack of writing awesome sex scenes. Boy, did she get me all hot and bothered. I will never look at food and spider webs the same way again. I know that sounded a bit creepy, but trust me once you read the scene, you will wonder where you can get one of those!
I absolutely loved Ms. DeLeina’s new universe. I finished reading, craving more. My mind reeled and my body yearned for the tantalizing pleasures in Flesh Fantasy. My only negative comment about the story is that there wasn’t another book...yet. Read Flesh Fantasy and be transported into a fantasy world of erotic sex, deceiving plots and laugh out loud humor. This book does not disappoint!
