Summary

Death eventually comes for us all. But what if there’s a way for older people to regain their youth?

To stay a step ahead of the grim reaper? 

Turning 40 was the last straw for me. It’s practically 60 in gay years and I wasn’t ready for dentures yet, so I came to Youthology - a program that injects clients with blood transfusions from young, fit and healthy donors. 

I chose Nick. 

Handsome. Masculine. And more importantly, young. 

I thought I hit the lottery, until my life started to change for the worst. Not even the top medical experts can explain what happened to me. From the moment Nick’s blood flooded into my veins, I stopped being me, and I became something new; something dangerous and deadly. 

I became my donor. 

His obsessions are mine now. His darkest desires, his dreams, his needs, and nightmares are all a part of me, and I don’t want to let them go. 

I embrace them and the beautiful boy who haunts both of our dreams. 

My blood pact was sealed the moment I entered Youthology. 

I never thought I’d become a killer. 

This book is part of Criminal Delights. Each novel can be listened to as a standalone and contains a dark M/M romance. 

Warning: These books are for adult listeners who enjoy stories where lines between right and wrong get blurry. High heat, twisted, and tantalizing, these are not for the fainthearted.

Dark and Twisted - Not For the Faint of Heart

This story is part of the Criminal Delights series. The Criminal Delight series is composed of a bunch of different standalone books which share an overall theme of dark, gritty, twisted love. It’s in My Blood focused specifically on obsession and how it can seep into a person’s psyche and morph them into something unrecognizable from their previous self. Mark, in the start of the book, was an average, middle-age man who was having a difficult time aging. From the beginning, Mark wasn’t a paragon of virtue, but he was a law-abiding man, if a bit self-centered and shallow. The blood transfusions transforms Mark from average and middle-age, to a young and hot stud. The more Mark transforms, the more his darker and twisted desires begin to manifest, and his self-center and narcissistic behavior intensifies. It becomes clear, no matter how hard Mark tries to justify his behavior, that Mark’s only true concern is his own pleasure. It’s like a Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde transformation if Mr. Hyde was sexy, hot beast of a Dom. There was a ton of sex in this book – super hot, kinky, delicious sex. I loved the kinky sex club which hosted many steamy scenes.

Overall Rating: 4.5 Stars. The characterizations and sex scenes were very well done. The main purpose of the plot seemed to be a way to showcase Mark and his transformation – which was done very well – but I would have liked a little more exploration of the relationship between Mark and Sean. I hope there’s a sequel featuring the two of them.

I also listened to this book on Audible. The story was just as steamy and delicious. Zachary Zaba did a good job of narrating the story, and I enjoyed listening to the book just as much as I enjoyed reading it the first time.
