Loving Damien by Brooke Adams

Andrea Blair and Damien King are childhood friends, although their destinies couldn’t be more different. Andrea is human, while Damien belongs to a breed of powerful vampires who are born to immortal parents and live seemingly ordinary lives until they turn thirty, when they are bound by the timeless moon ritual to find a mate among their own kind or risk losing their immortality.

Despite being an irresistibly attractive uptown executive, Damien is a ruthless predator with an insatiable craving for human blood. But his craving for Andrea is equally as strong and he will stop at nothing to make her his mate against all odds, even if it means breaking ancient rules or saving her from other vampires. However, Andrea fears the consequences of loving a bloodthirsty vampire and desperately fights her secret longing to give in to his increasingly sexual demands.

Now, with his thirtieth birthday just a month away, Damien is racing against time to consummate the ritual before the last phase of the lunar eclipse, when must convince Andrea to give herself willingly to him in flesh… and blood.

But humans are off-limits to vampires, except to feed on.

Reviewer: PurpleRose
Damien is a vampire who must pick a mate before his 30th birthday or he will lose his immortality. He wants it to be Andrea his bestfriend from childhood, but she's human...

I give Loving Damien 3.5 stars. While I liked the idea, the storyline, as well as the character, this was a very short story and because of that I found it lacking in world building details. I would have liked to know more about these vampires and more time spent on the actual ritual. I also found it a bit confusing sometimes when in the same paragraph the character's thoughts would switch back and forth between characters.
