In an interesting variation of enemies-to-lovers, this is the story of two men falling in love despite their fundamental differences. How fundamental, you ask? Well, let me tell you that a more accurate label for what happens here is prey-and-hunter-to-lovers, and that will give you a feel for the enormity of the chasm deer shifter Jason and vampire Drew have to cross if they want to be together. Of course, the fact that they are also both human, kind of, helps them overcome what might be too big of a difference if they both gave in to their instincts.

Jason may be a deer shifter, but he certainly doesn't hold back and he knows what he wants. There is only one problem: he hates vampires. Not that it stops him from craving Drew, and when a lust demon causes a lockdown at the crime lab and leaves him and Drew in close quarters—any sort of caution and restraint on his side go out the window. What follows is an extremely hot encounter. Then he has to deal with the fact he is still attracted to Drew…

Drew has been lusting after Jason for months, but he is aware of the shifter's hatred of the undead. When Drew is the only one present during the lockdown, he takes the opportunity to slake Jason's lust – only to find there may be way more than physical attraction between them. But Drew's job is dangerous, and he has no intention of pulling Jason into any of the stuff he is working on. Except his arch enemy, the vampire who changed him against his will, has other ideas…

If you like prey-and-hunter-to-lovers stores, if a paranormal tale with evil villains and the excitement of the hunt are your thing, and if you're looking for a read that is as tension-filled as it is hot, then you will probably like this short story. ( )

A classical paranormal romance, the original element is the shifter nature of one of the main character, a deer. And when he is paired with a vampire, well, the two can't take their hands off each other.

Jason is the new guy, just hired at the precint as lab tech. But he has heard everything about Drew, the good cop who was turned vampire against his will. Even if he didn't want it, he is now dangerous for who is near him, and he has not actually the fame of being the tost of the ton. But Drew, despite his previous bad opinion of vampires in general, is attracted by the man and it will be no long they give on to that attraction.

I liked the mix of strength and fragility but men are able to show; sure the fragility is not physical, and so the sex is pretty intense, but they have both some emotional issies they need the overcome, probably starting to trust each other and then the rest of the world.

I noticed this was part of a series, previous story the heterosexual romance between Jason's sister and her werewolf lover, and from hint here and there I can probably say that Silvia Violet is one of those few example of authors able to write in both genres, gay and het romances.
