My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This series is amazing, and I find this book one of the best in the series. As far as a paranormal series, I find it has elevated what I expect when I read a paranormal. It has some of your favorite elements of a paranormal, but also has a mafia feel as well. Master Trentino is dark and delicious read with danger, intrigue, and forbidden fruit. I love the whole series, but this one exceeded my expectations!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Great series! It ties in police detective work with vampires. The real world, in this case, is the human world we know, mixed in with vampire bars and a vampire overlord. If you like vampires, world building, police work, and romance, this series is for you.
Book 1 is about a human detective being brought into the vampire world under Master Descallia (the vampire ruler) and learning what it is like to be a vampire. She is investigating missing girls. Can she find them? Can she fit into this new world? What happens to her old life if she’s a part of the new life?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

As the overall story line continues for the Masters of the Consulate series this book focuses on Trentino and Angel’s story. As in the first two books of the series there is a BDSM theme and may be a trigger for some. While you could probably read this as a stand alone without massive amounts of confusion I would strongly recommend reading the series in order, things will just make much more sense.
In this book we have Trentino, a master vampire and Angel, the niece and sister of several higher ups in the human Syndicate as the main love interests. In a chance meeting at the beginning of their story the two have a quick but intense passing where Trentino becomes positive they will have some kind of future relationship. This almost does not come to pass as enemies try to wipe out her family. Trentino finds her with just enough time to turn her but will not do so without consent. Getting the permission of her brother Trentino starts the process. When Angel comes to she has a lot of prejudices to overcome as she was raise with vampires being the enemy Trentino and Angel continue to spark and realize that they belong together which helps Angel, along with the help of her special gift, overcome her fears quickly. The two work with the others to try and discover who is behind all the treacheries they have all been facing.
This has by far been my favorite book of the series so far. I love how all of the characters and relationships among each other continue to grow and the continuing story line continues to draw you in with each added detail. I will definitely be continuing the series as it comes.

As the overall story line continues for the Masters of the Consulate series this book focuses on Christian and Delilahs story. As in the first book of the series there is a BDSM theme and may be a trigger for some.
Master Tuscano is pure blood who feel in love with a human and the Consulate makes their unhappiness known to the two. Upon learning that she isn’t what the Consulate deems an acceptable mate for a Master, especially because she has no plans to be converted Delilah runs. While living with a witch coven she is kidnapped, once she is rescued Christian cares for her and tries to prove to her that she is what he wants regardless of the Consulates view. Delilah does not make it easy though. She runs under the pretense that she has to take care of her torturers because she does not want that on Christians head. Unfortunately, things do not go as planned and Christian must turn her or lose her and he just is not willing to do that. As they work to overcome the challenges and misunderstanding between both each other and the consulate While I love Christian’s character Delilah stirs mixed feelings for me. In moments she feels too naive in the story to me but by the end I feel she has matured enough belong. Can’t wait to see how the overall story carries to the next book.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Humans, the Syndicates and Vampires have learned to exist in an uneasy balance.  However, the multiple disappearances of women in Las Vegas in a way that points to the Vampires threatens to topple that balance. The Consulate of the Vampires, the ruling party for the Vampires, made up of 12 pure bloods and an Overload decide they must step in.  Overlord Salvatore Descallia is invested in finding who is kidnapping humans while trying to frame his people.  In order to shadow the investigation, Descallia heads to Vegas.   The human’s police department want to place an undercover, Clairvoyant officer before the Vampires become aware of the situation.   When Descallia addresses Officer Lucianna Denaro, she decides to work with him to reach the same goal, find the women.  Unfortunately, things just do not go as planned.   This led Descallia to offer Luce a chance at a second life, as a vampire.  The sparks that fly between the two are intense from start to finish.  Descallia expects obedience and Lucianna is just as head strong.
The characters are well developed, have depth and a connection that neither was expecting. There is a BDSM theme throughout so for some that may be a trigger. I also like that there is a larger story being laid out throughout. Can not wait to see how the how story carries through to the next book in the series.

I love a great vampire book and this series continues to truly swoon me in! This is the 3rd book in this series and I can say I love them all but this is my favorite. Trentino ends up saving Angel’s life and has to turn her in order to do so. I also love the sizzling moments between Angel and Trentino and their chemistry that leave my heart racing. Vampires, intrigue, betrayal and steamy scenes all wrapped into a great book!! Highly recommended.

3.25⭐️

When Trentino enters the home of the Mancino brothers to cover his people as they recover what was stolen from them. Unbeknownst to him, their sister wakes to check what is going on. Angel senses someone in the house but she’s not sure if actually someone or her dead grandmother trying to talk with her like always. Then a vampire traps her in a moment filled with fear but many something more. It only starts to become clear what that was when her home gets attacked, her brother killed, and this vampire enters finding her on the floor bleeding out. Though she’s grown to hate them, her life might just be saved thanks to one. Risking the needs of the community, Trentino will figure out why the Mancinos were attacked and how it connects the efforts being made to discredit and destroy the vampire community.

I actually found myself linking Angel a lot more than I anticipated. I think a lot had to do with the fact that I really struggled in the beginning because though these books are pretty decent and quick reads in the moment you’re reading them, I personally find it really hard to remember what happened. I found a lot of the time that I was struggling to remember who some of the main characters were and what their roles were within the vampire community. I will say that the author’s strongest skill lay in her romantic and smut scenes. With that being said, it took me a long time to realize that there was a larger overarching plot that would last several more books after what I was reading. Additionally, I find it frustrating that the main heroines continue to follow very similar paths of finding their mates and becoming vampires. On a positive though, I really liked how even though Angel wasn’t sure how much she wanted to be a vampire, she dedicated herself to figuring it out and had many great scenes with the other female characters. Overall, I agree with the one master’s comment at the end regarding his perspective on the rules being broken.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the second story in the “Masters of the Consulate” series. It is an interesting world this author has created. It is a paranormal read about Christian and Delilah. This is an interesting and intriguing story. great paranormal, vampire romance series. Each book can be read as a stand-alone, but it’ll make for much better reading and more enjoyment if the series is read in order as there is a background story running along in the background of the romance storyline. The ongoing storyline of the vampires and their struggles with others that is running through this series. The author has done a great job of creating a great storyline with many twists and turns that keep you entertained and not wanting to put the book down.
