The hunt is on.Pretty young men and women like Michael’s best friend, Scary Mary, are disappearing from underground goth clubs all over Detroit. For over two years, Michael has been scouring the midwest for buried newspaper articles and obscure medical reports, and now he’s finally pinpointed the source of the problem. Too bad he can’t exactly go to the cops and tell them his friend was murdered by vampires. Since it’s his duty to start wiping out the scourge, he’s posing as bait—and he’s got a bag of sharpened hickory stakes to do the job.Everything should go smoothly, given the amount of preparation that Michael has put into the hunt. He’s got a practiced repertoire of come-hither eyeliner looks and a full blister-pack of the date rape drug Rohypnol. But he didn’t count on Wild Bill showing up.Wild Bill is a vision in spiked hair and scuffed black leather—exactly the type of guy Michael would have fallen for…if he’d ever had the chance. Unfortunately, with a vampire in his sights, Michael has no time for an actual date. Despite his best efforts, it seems there’s nothing Michael can do to shake Bill loose. Looks like they’re in for a wild, wild ride.… (lisätietoja)

I enjoy this author's work but this is not my favorite. If you want gay porn vampires, you've got it. I like her work for the relationship build and honestly because gay romance is just about the least misogynistic romance crap out there. Still lacking the misogny but no relationship so I really can't care about reading on to see how these 2 hook up in the future. Characters are flatter than usual for this author but seeing as it was written to be a one off bit of porn fun I wasn't expecting any more than that. ( )

This story seems awfully familiar...hmmm...kind of similar to [b:Halfway to the Grave|1421990|Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress, #1)|Jeaniene Frost|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1330786464s/1421990.jpg|1412415].
Hmm, curious. I actually want to read more of this one. Must be the lack of a woman here. That threesome helped a LOT bit. And the protagonist's pov isn't that annoying, even when he seems to have the emo vibe or look or whatever that is. ( )

Payback (Channeling Morpheus 1) opens in a Detroit bar in the first-person viewpoint of Michael, who awaits an arranged date. But why does he have a satchel filled with hickory stakes and Rohypnol (the date-rape drug)? Michael, who has recently learned of the existence of vampires, has made it his sacred calling to hunt down and destroy them. His first slaying will happen tonight as soon as he lures vampire Gray back to his hotel room. Using himself as sexual bait, he plans to slip Gray some Rohypnol to slow the vampire down enough to kill.

Meanwhile, a gorgeous guy leans over to ask for a light. This man is completely Michael’s type from his spiked blond hair to his chipped black nail polish and ripped jeans. He introduces himself as Wild Bill and Michael would desperately love to go home with him. But Michael’s mission compels him to brush off Bill as Gray arrives. He senses that he is hopelessly outmatched by a vampire like Gray. Then disaster strikes as Michael and Gray leave the bar – and Bill cheerfully invites himself along for a threesome. Anything could happen now.

This dark novelette (at 11, 285 words) of white-hot suspense was first published in 2008 by Changeling Press, and is now in its second edition from JCP Books. What makes the biggest impression on me is the story’s unrelenting tension. Also, its complete unpredictability. Michael’s viewpoint contains a haunting combination of determination and wounded innocence. At 21 years old, he is far too young to give up a normal life to dedicate himself to vampire hunting. He is well aware that he probably won’t survive much longer. Yet, his reasons for choosing such a perilous life are intensely personal and it gives Payback and subsequent installments in the Channeling Morpheus series a satisfying emotional depth.

Meanwhile, Bill adds the unpredictability and flashes of humor that balance out the darkness and gravity of Michael’s viewpoint. This is a marvelous introduction to a very strong series. If, like me, you picked up a copy in 2008, the second edition is not significantly changed. If you haven’t yet tried the series, now is the time as it is re-released from JCP Books. It is not-to-be-missed!

First and foremost, this story is mostly sex. Hot sex to a point but not as much as it could be because Michael is distracted the entire time. I was also so thrown for a loop that Price wrote a scene with a three-some when the Psycop series is so vanilla (and I love it) but it set the stage for this very different series which is darker and dirtier.

I'm not passing judgment on threesomes--my purity score is pretty low for someone who hasn't really done drugs so I would be that proverbial pot--but the way this one plays out, a menage-a-trois that is also a one-night stand, is definitely on the grungy side. (Did I really just say that? No diagonal reference intended.)

As the books progress, there is more plot and thus they are longer (there is always lots of hot sex). I wish they were illustrated because I am head over heels in lust with the cover model. (See the version of the cover art for installment five that has him facing sideways holding a gun. He is soooo pretty. I like pretty boys.) ( )
