Review: Bane's Choice by Alyssa Day

Bane lost his humanity ages ago. Nothing is more important than protecting his Vampire Motorcycle Club from the death magic invading his territory. The most ancient of vampires, he seeks cold, unfeeling, bloody vengeance...until a frustratingly sexy human doctor is thrust into his path. She tempts Bane to distraction. And distraction is deadly in his world.

Buttoned-up and meticulous Dr. Ryan St. Cloud never thought she’d find herself in the mix of a motorcycle club, let alone one full of terrifyingly badass vampires. Or how intrigued she is by their dark and enigmatic leader, who seems balanced on the knife’s edge of killing her...or claiming her.

But Bane’s choice is harder than it seems because when that danger hits too close to home, he’s forced to choose between her life and everyone else’s…
I have to admit that in the last few years I haven't been into vampire romances as much as I was before. Not sure why they just don't call me like they used to. I'm sure that I'll get back to them big again. You know the saying 'what goes around, comes around' and that's so true. 

But since it was Alyssa Day who wrote it and I've loved her other stuff I knew I had to try it and I'm glad I did. It was written with Day's fair for putting together a well-written story that you find yourself enjoying. 

I really liked the idea of the storyline but at times I felt the author had so much story in her mind that she rushed to get it all on the pages. I felt at times dropped in and like I was supposed to know who was who and why. It wasn't even like the author was putting a ton in because its the first book in the series, it was almost like I missed a book or two 

I really liked Bane and at times Ryan too. Sometimes she got on my last nerve but I enjoyed how they are together so I forgave that. I wasn't sure in the beginning they'd work but soon found that they did. There are characters you meet in the book that you want to know about so they help you enjoy the story. 

For me, Bane's Choice was like a motorcycle ride. It started off slightly slow, it finally picked up but might have moved a little too fast. I was hoping for a little more information about everything and then finally rushed to the end and stopped. Maybe a little too quickly. I felt it was missing more. 

This isn't a bad start to a new series and I hope that the next book is a little better now that the author has figured out some of her world. I guess we'll see with the next book. I enjoyed it but wished for a little more.
