Growing up, Kai Bennu was taunted for skin dark as midnight and his otherworldly appearance. They called him Nightmare, but Alec Vasilios, a wealthy and powerful businessman, wants to call Kai his own. Kai’s past has left him with little trust in others and even more reluctance to surrender himself to Alec’s power. With both men harboring supernatural secrets, finding common ground won’t come without sacrifice.
They never asked him his name. They ran from his shadow. He was alone. Always alone. He was Nightmare.
To me he was everything I wanted. To me, he was beautiful. I needed to run my fingers along his skin, to cherish him. In the heat of the blazing sun, I wanted to taste his sweat. I wanted him beneath me, a part of me, a part of my soul. He didn’t frighten me. He entranced me. He called to me.
REVIEW BY ELAINE WHITE
Book – They Called Him Nightmare (A Walk on the Wild Side)
Wow. I’m not even sure what to say. This one just left me totally…speechless.
A rollercoaster of emotion, had me crying a few times in so few pages and such wonderful world building and exploration of characters. I’ve read books in the 2-300 pages length that haven’t given me the emotion that this 26-page story did.
Between Alec, the feisty, sex-fuelled vampire; Kai, the ‘Nightmare’ flame with a heart of gold; and Mama Bennu, the woman with fire, love and compassion, I didn’t know where to turn. Every character was a rainbow of emotion, depth and soul, only making this story so much the better.
Now, usually, an ending at 90% would have me frustrated or annoyed. But this story was done. This story gave me everything I wanted and needed in the space it took up. It didn’t need that extra 10%. But I needed it, to collect myself and finally breathe easy again, after the end of that incredible story.
I will now happily instant-buy anything Deja Black releases in the future. No questions asked.
“There was something about him that called to me, promised the hunger that wracked my body would by satisfied if I were to have him as my own. He was prey to my predator.” ~ Alec
“The sun would never shine enough for me, would always be dim when she was gone. She was my sun. I revolved around her. I would die if I could, a million times just to have her live forever.” ~ Kai
“She was my champion, and her light was going out, the torch burning low, and I would be lost without its glow.” ~ Kai
Deja Black had fantasies of men loving men, men who felt strongly, loved hard, and needed a hero. Then one great day she came across a book and discovered the world of m/m writing, encountered others who shared her obsession as much as she did, and found a world where she could not only be accepted for the lives and loves she envisioned, but she could create them too. So why not? Why not take the stories she would write and throw away as a teenager, grow them, dream them, and make them a reality where she could know her own characters, let them live their story, and make them real for someone else? And she did. Now, with the support of her hubby and some intense time management, she is learning to balance her family of two energetic children and a very needy shitzu at home along with the many students she teaches each and every day with her passion of writing what she loves to read.
