Publisher's Summary

It's been five months since vampire Sam Parker Bound herself to Jared Michaels, her powerful co-commander within the Grand High Master vampire's personal legion. Life as a Bound couple has been going just fine...until the Grand High Master announces he will be stepping down from his position and wants Sam and Jared to take his place. Oh joy. 

Despite Sam's reservations, she agrees to ascend. But something very powerful has surfaced; something that is quickly decreasing the vampire population and could steal the lives of people close to Sam. At the same time, she finds herself under the scrutiny of vindictive vampires accusing her of exploiting her position as a commander - something that would threaten her ascension. 

Under the watchful eyes of people who would love nothing more than to strip her of her title, Sam and Jared must continue to conceal her hybrid status and find a way to fight this power that nothing before them has ever been able to overcome. If not, they stand to lose not only the people they hold close, but their future as the Grand High Pair.

bk 3 Vamp Torment

Sam and Jared have bound themselves and are co-commanders for the Grand High Master vampire. That is until the Grand High Master tells them he wants to retire.

Despite Sam not enjoying the spotlight, her and Jared feel compelled to resolve a virus wiping out Vampires. Despite Sam having the respect of her team and partner, other vampires challenge her ability to lead and more so challenge her new abilities as hybrid.

Really enjoyed this book by Suzanne Wright and Justine Eyre's and PJ Ochlans creative and fun narration of this action packed story.

Very Entertaining

I am really liking this series. The story is exciting and entertaining, it’s different then a lot of other vampire books I’ve read. I am looking forward to listening to the rest of the series, the narration is awesome.

Excellent, as usual

Justine Eyre and P. J. Ochlan gave solid performances. I especially enjoyed the accents.

Suzanne Wright is an author who writes books I will automatically purchase just because her name is on the cover. She has more than earned that by consistently delivering quality stories I’ve enjoyed every single time.

A Must-Read PNR

This entire series is the best. Suzanne Wright hits a home run every single time. The narrators did a great job, too. Five stars!

Great!

Jared is pretty awesome now! I wasn't impressed in the first book after the sexism but by this one, I'm in love! Their love is epic.

Big fan of thus author

This series is one I have listened to more than once. I really enjoy how the author writes her H.and h. They are always strong independent people with redeeming qualities. I like that her romance has no cheating. There are very steamy scenes. The plotlines in her books (Deep in your veins, The Dark in You, Phoenix Pack) are always unique and keep me engaged. Yes, there are steamy scenes. No the sex scenes do not take up 20 percent of the book. This book wraps up the three book series of Sam and Jarad. Their story wrapped up well. There was lots of action and I read straight through. I'm looking forward to the books about the squad members.

I liked the changing POV in this series. I liked knowing where the main characters were coming from. Initially (in the first book) the switch in narrators based on POV was great when they were voicing their character but the different voice of the Sam and Jarad took getting used to. By this book it was not an issue for me at all. I think both narrators do a great job delivering the perspective of their character in a believable and fun way.

Good

Ok, this series is growing on me. I think I just like this couple more now that they are together and there is no longer the bickering from the first book. I think the storyline in this book and book 2 is pretty interesting. I highly recommend the audiobooks. The two narrators are doing a good job with these characters.

Loved the story, but...

I wish the author would not spend so much time with name calling. Very unsettling having the life mate, love interest, love of ones life being called a bitch. I can understand the female villain being called names, but do we really need more women being disrespected? Especially in the name of love? Such behavior tends to normalize being called names, and our young people think this is ok.

I'm still loving this series and I still that the male character doesn't fit this story 🤷‍♀️
