This is one of my favorites of Cardeno C.'s. Definitely in my top 3. It was so sexy and sweet, with little angst.

Boy Meets Boy Reviews

Cardeno C offered me a taste of something different and I have to say I like it. I was impressed with both of the main characters and their connection was very strong. Ethan being the runt of the pack is thoroughly enchanting in all his innocence and witty charm. Miguel is the vicious vampire with a heart that beats strongly for Ethan. Their relationship is what kept the story fresh and exciting. ... Cardeno C does it right once again.

very single title in the series thus far has been pure pleasure to read. If you like, love, or are merely sitting in a ‘meh' position on the fence of the paranormal genre, Cardeno C.'s lyrical, mystical, and gossamer web of words is sure to leave you wrapped in satisfaction. ... get ready for one hell of a read in the latest installment of this exquisite series. The third book in this series, In Your Eyes, is perhaps a tougher read than the first two… but like all things one has to work a bit more to acquire, the pay-off at the end is greater as well. Pfft, whatever you do, be prepared to fall in love over and over and over again.

Smoocher's Voice

I totally loved this book and I hope you do, too. ...I fell completely in love with Jeremy and Reg right from the beginning. Jeremy is so clueless about his own feelings and his own desires, and he can be pouty, whiny, and needy. Most of the time, like Reg, I just wanted to ruffle his hair and snuggle him. Jeremy has been alone his entire life while surrounded by people. Reg is the most amazing combination of sexy, assured, confident, without being arrogant or cocky, tender, loving, smart, funny, and deep-down steady. He makes Jeremy laugh, he takes care of him, and that is exactly what Reg needs - someone to love and spoil.
