Review: Thomas's Choice (Scanguards Vampires, #8) by Tina Folsom


Scanguards vampire and master of mind control Thomas has mentored newbie vampire Eddie for over a year-and been in love with him for just as long. But he believes that his love will never be reciprocated.

While patrolling San Francisco for evil vampires, Eddie kisses Thomas as a diversionary tactic and is shaken to the core by his reaction. He's terrified of his sexual attraction to his mentor and afraid that moving forward and giving into his desires will destroy the relationship they have.

When hurt and disappointment about Eddie's inability to commit leads Thomas onto a dark path that spells destruction for all those he loves, only Eddie can pull him back from the brink of eternal darkness. But does Eddie have the courage to face his true feelings in time to save the man who's meant for him?

My Review
5 Hot Male Stars

Thomas’s Choice is book eight in the Scanguards Vampires series by Tina Folsom. From the very first book Samson's Lovely Mortal to the eighth book it show’s no signs of getting stale, she still manages to pull you into the world of San Fran and her Scanguards Vampires. 

I have long awaited for Thomas’s story, from the moment he was introduced. Tina Folsom has a great write'n style and does not disappoint her fans! We get suspense, romance, heartache, action and male love. This is one of the best M/M books I have read. It’s all done very tastefully and the story fly's by that you don’t even notice you are at the end. This book can be read as a stand alone, but you will best understand all the characters and where they are coming from if you read this series in order. 

Thomas has been with Scangards for over a century. He has seen a time when gays where not accepted and to be different you end up in jail or worse. For over a year he has been in love with Eddie, but Eddie is straight or so we think. So Thomas has kept his feelings hidden from everyone even Eddie. Thomas is also battling a dark power given to him by his maker. Will Thomas over come his dark side and find love with the man of his dreams?

Eddie was turned into a vampire a little over a year ago (Amaury's Hellion book 2 explains). He wanted to not be a disappointment or a burden to his sister. Eddie was with the bad vampires, so he’s had a bad start and now he finds himself with Scanguards and a second chance to make things right. For a year he has lived and worked with his mentor Thomas. After overhearing some of his colleges comment about Thomas haven a crush on him he has no idea how to feel or act around his mentor. He doesn’t want to admit he’s gay or is he? Will Eddie over come his condition and embrace the love Thomas can give him?

Eddie starts to have feelings for his mentor Thomas after over herring his colleges comment and he does not understand why, so he blame's his maker Luther thinking that he did something to mess up his turning. What Luther has to say: "Luther (Eddies sire) rocked back on his heels. "How you were before? Oh, Eddie, you're still the same way you always were. Turning you into a vampire didn't change who you are, or who you love. Whatever you feel now, it was already there when you were human. Latent, maybe. But you already had it in you.”” I found this very profound! After that the Heat between Thomas and Eddie steams up the pages. The sex scenes are amazing, hot, heavy, intense, deeply sexual and tastefully written. The fact that both Eddie and Thomas are ripped full of muscles and beautiful inside and out doesn't hurt the story at all, two hot guys for the price of one!

Critical Intelligence had some funny moments to I really enjoyed.  My favorite is the first quote the moment someone learns they are going to be a daddy I had to smile it reminded me of the day our son was born and how my hubby cried and passed out after he was born. ^_^  Check out my review here!

 " Nothing is wrong." Green smiled. "Well, not unless you consider being a father a bad thing."      "Being a father?"       "I'm going to be a ..." Darkness swallowed him whole as he passed out cold. ~ Critical Intelligence by Mandy M…
