    One thought on “Night Play”

    1. I'm not feeling it right now. The book is cute but insta love is not my jam. Vane is hot though. I'm picturing him as Derek Hale. (view spoiler)[Here's what went wrong:The main characters have sex in the first chapter. That's my biggest pet peeve. Couldn't they at least have waited till the 7th chapter?Insta love/lust. Not a fan. (hide spoiler)]The hero is some sort of hybrid shapeshifter. He was born a wolf. This is why I was Team Edward. I'm not into bestiality. That is all.["br"]>["br"]> [...]

    2. Vane Kattalakis (half Katagaria/half Arcadian) and Bride McTierney (human) "My boyfriend is a dog, his mother's psychotic, and I just nearly missed being the main attraction in some low-budget porn flick, complete with bad costuming and food. I mean, what is this? 'Welcome to my family, you now get to sleep with all my brothers, and I do mean all my brothers, cousins, friends, hell, everyone?' You know, most in-laws just bring over a casserole, not a four-hundred-year-old vendetta." The star of [...]

    3. Well, all I can see about this book is how everyone loved it. I guess my expectations were high because of that, and for me, the book didn't deliver I know most PNR come with insta-love, and I am prepared for it, but here, I just didn't buy the whole thing at all. Maybe it was because it wasn't insta-love, but insta-lust (as it also usually is), but the characters meet and have sex in the same scene (the first 10% of the book)That killed the book for me, and the other 90% I just got through it s [...]

    4. My favorite of the series. I love when animals try to "human". Vane is a werewolf that is asking for dating advice from Dark Hunters. Not exactly the best source:"Julian, how did you meet your wife?"Julian shrugged. "My brother the sex god cursed me into a book for two thousand years. Grace got drunk on her birthday and summoned me out of it."Vane rolled his eyes. "That's useless. Kyrian? What about you?""I woke up handcuffed to Amanda."Vane could work with that. "So I need to get a set of handc [...]

    5. What makes Night Play a cut above the rest in the Dark Hunter seris, is the fact that it's totally character driven. (For me, it's always about the character.) I adored the heroine, Bride. She's a real woman and her feelings are so well expressed (by showing not telling,) SK hits dead on with this one.The book starts out with Bride being dumped by her selfish boyfriend of 5 yrs. Not five minutes after she received her dumping papers, via HER OWN fedex account no less- we meet the hero who swoops [...]

    6. THC Reviews"4.5 stars" The Dark-Hunter series has had some ups and downs for me, but I have to say that I'm glad that I have continued with it or I would have missed out on some wonderful stories. When Sherrilyn Kenyon is “up”, she can write a very good story, and Night Play was definitely an “up” book for me. It had the swoon-worthy romance that I've loved in some of Ms. Kenyon's other books, lots of fun and interesting characters, and a good plot. Night Play picks up the narrative of W [...]

    7. I have loved this series since I first read Acheron, /book/show/2 which is still my absolute favorite book!!! This was the one that introduced me Sherrilyn Kenyon’s breathtaking world of Greek gods, demi-gods, dark hunters, were hunters, dream hunters…azing and unforgettable characters…filled with mythology, paranormal, romance…’s all I want in paranormal romance!!I haven’t read the books in order and this is one of those that I am reading now. Not that it matters really, although I [...]

    8. This book took me by surprise. I have read (or listened to) a handful of books in this series and some were ok and others a little better. But this one was great!I loved the hero, Vane. His perspective was my absolute favorite. Having been raised a wolf almost his entire life and only having a human form for the past 9 months (I think), he has a totally unique view of people and life. (She wolves sound like real bitches!) He comes from a seriously messed up childhood - or I guess really puppyhoo [...]

    9. This was an adult paranormal romance featuring a werewolf and a human.Vane and Bride were both likeable characters and it was nice to see how protective Vane was when it came to Bride.The storyline in this was about Vane finding out that Bride was his mate, and not knowing what to do about it because she was human whilst he was a very powerful werewolf, and he was afraid of hurting her. We also had some problems with Vane’s family, especially his mother, which meant that Bride’s life was put [...]

    10. I LOVED THIS BOOK.This is the fifth book in Dark-Hunter series but the first one in Were-Hunter series. You will here discover the world of Were-Hunter, a great introduction to the Katagaria and Arcadians.Vane was born to Katagaria father and Arcadian mother. He grew up in the Wolf-Human pack of his father. Both of his parents hated him and wanted him dead. He was just the victim of the hatred between them. Vane was continually abused, neglected, and mistreated by the other members in his pack. [...]

Dark Hunter Flashcard #5, Were Hunter Flashcard #1Name: Vane Kattalakis Age: 460The Beast Within: WolfSpecial W.H. power: Time TravelBest thing that came out of his mouth : I don't want you skinny, Bride.

Yes, the whole thing was that mundane.He falls for her because: She's his predestined mate.Her Name: Bride McTierneyAg [...]

    12. Another perfect hero. Vane was so sweet and loving. Alphas who go after what they want and don't waver are really my weakness. So many different storyline possibilities here. I will definitely be checking out more in the were-hunter series.

    13. 5 ROMANCE STARS! Yay! A most excellent romance. :)Let's see if I can sum this up for people who do not know Kenyon's world: werewolf named Vane with a death sentence on his head falls in love with a beautiful fat woman named Bride. :)Very cute, very sweet, full of kissing. :) So amazing of a book. 5-star romance.Just that sometimes we let other people treat us wrongly because we want to be loved and accepted so badly that we'd do anything for it. It hurts when you know that no matter how much yo [...]

    14. Night Play was a wonderful read for me, its my #1 favorite book so far in this series. I know I have many more to read, so I will definitely have more that I will love just the same,but for now this book is on my top favorites.Vane & Brides story was utterly amazing! I thought they were a,one of a kind couple.Were-Wolf and a Human,its obvious right from the start neither one of them are perfect, yet they manage to stick together through the evil and goodness in their relationship and make it [...]

    15. Vane is a Katagaria Were-hunter. He was born a wolf, and lived his life as one until puberty hit and he was suddenly transformed in to a man. Bride McTierny is a woman who has just been dumped by her boyfriend of 5 years. She is self conscious about her looks because she is heavier than the average woman.Vane had seen Bride a few weeks back, when she stopped by Sunshine Runningwolf's art stand in New Orleans. He was totally taken by her. Sunshine had told him she would introduce them, but he tol [...]

    16. "There's something inside you that scares me, Vane. Are you sure you're normal?"Vane looked so promising in the previous books, but I’m disappointed by his character now.I understand his unwillingness to force Bride into anything, as the "claiming can never be forced on a female", but his doubts and uncertanties are exaggerated. I like his magical powers: they are said to be unique and superlative, but sadly there is no real action in the story where he can actually show how powerful he is. He [...]

    17. 4.25 starsSo this is my third attempt at a Kenyon book (and this series) and I am still not 100% sure her writing style really works for me. The pacing and quality is just a little off, in my opinion. HOWEVER, that being said, for the most part, I really enjoyed Night Play, so I am indeed going to try another book in this series. What worked for me:--Vane. He was an awesome hero. So sweet, romantic, protective and devoted. I loved the way he treated Bride. He came from some pretty sad, violent c [...]

    18. El Juego de la Noche me ha gustado por Bride, nuestra protagonista. Una chica cuya autoestima se vio seriamente dañada gracias a un tipejo, de esos que no merecen ser llamados hombres ¬¬ Lo odio ¬¬En fin, regresando al punto Bride es una mujer curvilínea-curvilínea. Tiene una familia que la adora. Es inteligente, trabajadora, divertida y carismática. Pero después de haberse topado con esa rata de novio, evidentemente no quiere nada de nada con los chicos. Mucho menos con uno que es la p [...]

    19. 5 stars despite Ash doing the Macarena!! But that’s what I love about Kenyon’s Dark Hunter world…her ability to mix humor in with their tortured tales. She also has a talent at making some swoon worthy heroes, of which, Vane did not disappoint!

You're inevitably thinking, "This (insert relevant item here) can't POSSIBLY be that damn great!" Well, you're wrong. [...]

    21. Night Play is the Dark-Hunter story of Vane and Bride.This is one of my favorite stories in this series. Their relationship is inspiring and I found myself holding my breath as I read through wonderfully intimate (sexual and non-sexual) scenes.Vane is a wolf. The whole story behind him is a bit complex so I will leave well enough alone! He’s a wolf. He’s a man. He’s sexy. Bottom line. Betrayed by their father, Vane and Fang are left hanging from a tree. If the alligators don’t get them, [...]

    22. Posted on Under the CoversI must have screwed up the order of this series because I’ve read the ones after this but found that I had missed this one! It drove me nuts when I found out so I decided to read it right away and boy was I glad that I did. Vane is sex on a stick! It’s really no wonder why Suzanne (and others) have already claimed him for their harems. He’s a dream!Of course, the best thing about this book is the fact that he loves bigger women. Bride isn’t comfortable about her [...]

    23. 3,5/3Seriye kurt-adam molasıııııı.Yarı Katagaria yarı Arcadian olan Vane çiftleşmek için bir insan kadınıyla eşleşiyor bu kitapta.Benim harika Julian’ım ve Karanlık Avcıları’mın hele hele Zarek'imin ardından beni yeterli oranda heyecanlandırmasa da güzel bir kitaptı.Wait!” she said as he touched the knob. “You left your necklace.”Vane looked back at her one last time, knowing he would never see her again. She was so beautiful there with large, amber eyes set in [...]

    24. review by Meesh*Warning: possible spoilers ahead.*Tastes change a lot as a woman ages. When we're young and reckless, lots of us look at just the outer package. We want the flash. We want sexy and successful. A lot of young women will ignore a lot of very bad habits in men if they're good looking enough, drive a great car (or in my case, motorcycle), or have enough money. Then we grow up, which a lot of us feel is a very good thing. But what isn't good is the impetus for maturing.Let me be a lit [...]

    25. My first ever DH book, I can't believe it:) it feels like well last year haha, way back when I don't know there's a sitehappy memories:)There's so much information on who, what, where and how these characters came from especially the Hero, but it was explained in every detailed in the beginning,which got me interested in the first place. SoI won't going to tackle that anymore but I'll make some rambling thoughts about the Hero and Heroine and also why I love this book!:)I love Vane, such a genu [...]

    26. Different from the other Dark-Hunter novels. This is the first of the Were-Hunter series, but if you follow the author's reading list this is #9. How this differs from the DH novels: No serious big bad or end of the world problems. Vane does have people after him, but it's not an all consuming problem. The main point of the story is Vane winning/wooing Bride. Vane saw Bride months again & was floored by her beauty. She's a rubenesque lady who owns a lingerie/clothing boutique & was just [...]

    27. 3.5All in all, this book was ok. It's the normal "ok" kind of book.There was something I absolutely loved about it though: the beginning, the first few pages, just before the prologue. It's one of the best "placements" I've ever read, a wonderful, extraordinary way of explaining the new world and the history of this said world. I really really enjoyed it.

    28. Another great addition to the series. They just keep getting better. Really loved the kinder, sweeter nature & tone of this one. A Must Read as is the series!! :)
