Rating: You Gotta Read
Reviewed by: Mickey
Kelly needs to get herself a fetish. A newly-converted vampire, she's quiet, conservative, and prone to panic attacks. When her friend drags her to a vampire fetish club, she meets Marcus, a walking manual on sexual pleasure. Marcus is captivating and dangerous and knows exactly what he wants. With a single-minded purpose, he scoops Kelly up from her abnormal, disillusioned life and shows her the pleasures of immortality. His obsession with her body knows no limits, and her desire only burns hotter every time he touches her. She drives him insane with the blinding need to hear her scream his name with absolute abandon. Marcus shows her the true world of vampires, which is more magical than Kelly had ever dreamed.
Should I admit to being so charmed by Deadly Fetishes that I re-read the book the very instant I finished it the first time? That this compulsion seldom occurs is a testament to how much I loved this book, and shows to what an extent the characters and the story mesmerized me - I essentially refused to put it down. Perhaps, this is because I am a romantic, and at its heart Deadly Fetishes is the essence of a true romance. At one point, Ms. McLeod uses the phase “black and blood Goth fairy tale” to describe Marcus and Kelly's courtship, and that is exactly what her story is, with all the sweet charm of a fairytale and the bite (pun intended) of the vampire romance it is intended to be.
Marcus and Kelly are the ultimate fairytale match, Goth couple or not: he is handsome, broody and noble, she is lovely, sweet, and seemingly naive. They are perfect for each other, with Kelly able to bring out his protective instincts while trying to be as independent as possible. Deadly Fetishes has all the sensuality and sexuality of a typical erotic tale, yet it has so much more depth, feeling and emotion than most novels. Yes, there is a happily ever after, this after all, a “fairytale” but we are given enough angst, action, fun and sex in the meantime to make it a worthwhile read from beginning to end.
