Drew

What’s a retired rockstar vamp to do in a quaint, quiet English town?

Buy the only pub, make it a vampire haven, and flirt incessantly with my one and only employee, of course.

I hate everything about my new boss.

His face. His arrogant smile.

The way he acts like he knows everything.

Vampire Romance

Drew and Nova are both vampires. When Drew comes to Nova's little town and starts changing things, Nova wants nothing to do with him. Can Drew show Nova he's a good guy? I enjoyed this story overall. Both MCs had issues with communication, which did get a little tedious. Overall though their romance was enjoyable

A Different Vamp Story

If you are looking for the young twinck that falls for the old vamp and is turned to be with him forever this is not it. This book tells the courtship between to vamps which is different from any vamp stories that I have read and I liked that about the story. The writer does a good job. It's not angsty or snarky and you do get to sexy times eventually. For me I would have loved if the narrator put more energy into the performance.

Different take on a vampire story

What I really enjoyed about this story was the unique slant on the usual vampire story. The concept of a vampire opening a bleeder bar and turning the whole town into a vampire only town was very different to anything I’ve seen before. That side of the book was really well carried out, but on the flip side I struggled to feel the emotional connection between the two MC’s. But, while the emotional connection seemed to be missing, the physical side was hot and steamy and well written. The other part I struggled with was the introduction of Tyra who’s the vampire who turned them both. She had tortured Drew and he was understandably scared of seeing her again but, just as this part of the story started picking up speed, the two meet again and the whole encounter is over in seconds - so while the build up was good, the actual event fell a bit flat. So overall the book was a mixed ride for me.

Andrew Morrison did a great job as narrator. His portrayal meant the characters were easy to tell apart and he injected emotion through his narration.

I received an arc of this audiobook and am voluntarily leaving an honest and unbiased review

Pretty good

I listened to this on audio. It was pretty good, I think my favorite character was Clara! In the beginning, it felt like it was being set up as an enemies-to-lovers story because Nova didn’t like Drew at the beginning for some reason. I’m still not totally sure why, because it didn’t take very long before previously straight Nova was having sexy times with Drew. Most vampires aren’t straight, when you live so long, why limit yourself that way?
Overall, I liked this book, the only criticism I have is that sometimes things that were previously presented as a potential issue are just suddenly resolved. The narrator fairly good, though he had a little difficulty keeping the accents correct some times.

Low Angst Vampire Love

This is a light, easy vampire love story between former rock start Drew and reclusive Nova. The story would be a good beach read as it is uncomplicated and doesn't require much investment. The narrator was good, but was probably not the best choice as his British accent could use some work and Nova's accent seemed to fluctuate because of it. The story suffers a bit from having too many tropes, none of which are developed much. Drew is a former rock star, but that really doesn't factor much into the story. There's a brief moment of enemies to lovers but it never really sticks either. There's also a shared hurt/comfort aspect based on their similar pasts, but that also is pretty thin - it provides the basis of the climax, but it all feels a bit random. Not a bad listen by any means, but it's best not to think too hard on it.

Entertaining

Entertaining story, with a few pacing issues. Drew and Nova were engaging characters, quirky, and as different as night and day. The sexy times were indeed quite sexy. There were a few times when the pacing was bogged down with details I waited patiently to reappear, as they seemed important. Only they were never mentioned again, leaving me feeling slightly unfulfilled.

Andrew Morrison did a banging job of narrating, I will most definitely be looking forward to more of his work.

It was okay

So, I had a hard time getting into this one. Drew was so cocky & just rubbed me the wrong way, maybe it was because he was a musician & in the limelight. Anyway, he is bored with life & he will tell you; he is always bored. He decides to buy a bar in a small town where Nova works. Nova does not drink from live donors and wants nothing to do with Drew when he shows up. He tells him that no he isn't interested in men or drinking from bleeders (that is what the donors are called). Drew & Nova grow close while working on refurbishing the bar. Other than mentions about London, nothing stood out as this being set in England. The narrator even had more of an Australian accent then English IMO. About halfway through we find out that Drew is scared that his sire might find him. But what I didn't get was that they were part of a rock band & in the limelight & if she didn't come looking for him then, when he would be really easy to find. The story is relatively angst free.

Vampire mm romance

Blood on tap is a vampire mm romance with a bit of enemies to lovers. Overall it was a good story that was worth the listen. The narration is good and makes the story easy to listen. Would recommend to anyone looking for a short vampire romance to listen to.

Nova and Drew…

When a vampire rockstar decides to retire, where should he go? It seemed fun that a centuries old vampire like Drew would find a small town a good one to live in and buy its only pub. The bartender Nova wasn’t too happy about it. Their feeding ways were so different yet their attraction was instant. Nova was not into men, so that was a challenge but Drew is anything if not persistent. He is a sweetheart and when the going gets tough, he is loyal and protective. I like that they both shared a past acquaintance and not a good one. That helps them bond. Great narration.

A Vampires haven.

MM, Contemporary, Paranormal, Romance. I found it difficult to listen to as for most of the story there was little to hold my interest. Not my favourite paranormal read unfortunately. There were some interesting parts but not enough of a story for my taste.

Challenging listen

I always start an audiobook wanting to love it. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t. This book was okay, but I didn’t love it. I’m struggling to say exactly what didn’t enamour it to me and I’m at a loss. Vampires are always interesting – the whole bleeder thing a little much. I liked that Nova didn’t go after live donors, but was intrigued Drew was able to find so many willing donors.

I think, in the end, it was Drew’s insistence of creating an all-vampire enclave. To do that, he had to buy out and force to leave dozens of people who’d lived happily amidst the vampires peacefully for years. I didn’t like him turfing people from their forever homes just because he wanted something for himself. I felt really bad for Clara who was forced from her home where she’d lived with her husband for years. All because that’s what Drew wanted. It was couched in nice terms, but it felt selfish and I understood why Nova wasn’t immediately in love with Drew.

The relationship worked, but felt forced. Yes, there’s attraction, but Drew’s actions made him a bit of a jerk and Nova lost plenty of friends when Drew forced them out (or bought their houses, which I suppose wasn’t forcing, but the people didn’t want to go, so it felt that way).

I don’t know whether I’ve talked myself into liking the book or justifying why it didn’t sit well with me. The writing was fine, and the narrator did a decent job differentiating between the American and British accents. Worth a listen, especially if you like vampires. Just not my cup of tea.

Great performance that captures what I loved in the story

I loved this story of Drew a vampire/retired rocker/pub owner who sets his sights on his employee. This is an opposites attract romance in every way, as Nova is a quiet guy who just wants to work and live his ordinary life - at least he thinks he does until he meets Drew. The relationship is much gentler in its development than I expected and I enjoyed that. Something about the comfortable pub atmosphere carries through the book. If you'd like to dip your toes into paranormal m/m romance this would be a great place to start. The audio performance by Andrew Morrison captured what I loved when I read the story. It is warm and comfortable, drawing you into the lives of Drew and Nova, yet it also captures the heat in their relationship.

Superb

A fantastic addition by Riley Long. Although audible does not show it as a series the story follows on from a Shot in the Dark, but it does not diminish it if listen to on its own. Fabulous characters to get to know and don’t want to leave when the story ends.
Andrew Morrison was a superstar with the narration. Hope there is more to come from Riley Long and Andrew Morrison.

Engaging story, well narrated

Interesting storyline, intriguing set-up and pleasant characters made for an enjoyable listen. Most of the story was fairly low key - the angst came near the end when the pace of events suddenly went into over-drive. Riley is a new author to me and based on this I would be interested to read/listen to more stories.

I found the narrator very easy on the ear and will look for other books read by him.

New to me Author

First time reading/listening to a book from this author, and I wasn't sure what to expect, but I have enjoyed this story a lot and the characters.

Excellent world-building, and the characters were well-formed. Drew and Nova are complete opposites, but both Vampires, there are lots of side characters that enhance the storyline. The pub in the village is the central point.
There is a lot of angst, heat and violence, and you get a complete HEA.

Again, a new to me narrator, Andrew Morrison, was a pleasure to listen to, clean and concise. I speed this narration up to 1.50 on Audible, which is usual for me.

Sweet and short!

This was the first time I've heard an audiobook narrated by Andrew Morrison and while it was mostly enjoyable, there were times when the character from London had no accent whatsoever, which I found distracting.

The overall story was sweet, featuring a vampire from Texas moving to England to get out of the spotlight until it was safe after faking his death. The other MC was a bartender in the town that he moved to, and wasn't thrilled with his taking over the bar and town.

Once they began to know each other, they were very sweet and genuine. The story progressed from there, the only angst happening in the last hour.

A Vampire Town

Blood on Tap takes a unique twist on the vampire romance tropes which I found quite interesting. Drew has lived many different lives in his centuries of existence, but now he and his clan are looking for somewhere new to settle down. Landing in a small town within the UK, the last thing Drew expects is to find love in the form of the very hunky vampire bartender, Nova. Nova and Drew were interesting characters with their own flaws and baggage, but they work it out in the end. This story was sweet and unique with a little bit of angst and action to push the plot forward to a happy ending.

The audiobook was narrated by Andrew Morrison. Andrew has a really nice voice that worked well for the narration and characters. I enjoyed listening to him immensely. The production could have been a little smoother, but it wasn't anything too noticeable, and it didn't detract from my enjoyment of the audiobook. If another book was to be produced in this series, I'd definitely grab it up.
