I had no idea what I was missing. Seriously.
This is the first book I have read from Travis Luedke but there is no way in hell it will be my last. “The Nightlife San Antonio” is amazing and I can’t frickin’ wait to read the rest of the series. The sex. The drama. The blood. The sex. The intensity. The fear. THE SEX.
I have always enjoyed a good Vampire story, especially Vamperotic stories. Travis Luedke takes it to a level that I didn’t even know existed. I won’t re-hash the plot as several other reviewers have already done a fine job. But I will say that the characters were crafted to perfection. The story line is completely unpredictable and will take you on a ride that I am willing to bet you have never experienced. This book is dangerous, sinister, sultry, twisted, gory, sexy and all things worthy of making it a thrilling read from start to finish. It is a total melting pot of multiple genres with the best of each fused together to make this a must read for anyone who enjoys Vampires, Erotica, Thrillers, Suspense, Drama, Intrigue, Romance, Mystery… and Sex. Loved it!

The characters in this book have so much depth to them. Travis Luedke is an amazing author with such insight. It is a great book which shows us that everything is not as black and white as we may believe it to be. The main story is very different from his previous novels, something that worked in his favour for expanding the universe.
He is an ex-Iraq combatant, a sociopath who tries to save lives as a paramedic. She is a most wanted mafiosa vampire. He desires to save her at all cost, but has no idea where he got himself into. Want to know what happens between them, the mafia, cops, feds, two sexy lesbian neighbor’s and a crazy master? Grab a copy!
The sex scenes are very hot, the character development is really great, and the pace is tight. The author likes his hardboiled crime plots, but he handles them well, and they're a lot of fun to read.
If you love horror, romance, fantasy, suspense...it has it and you will not be let down after reading it.
I received this book in exchange from Lovers of Paranormal for an honest review.

4.5 Stars. The Nightlife San Antonio is part of The Nightlife series, however it is also a standalone book.
Adrian Faulkner , an EMT, is called to the scene of what seems to be a Mexican Mafia shooting to find a barely breathing beautiful woman shot multiple times.With no idea of who she is, he later resuscitates her and leaves her in the care of the hospital thinking they will not meet again. oh boy! was he wrong.
Not only does he meet her again, but this eerily compelling woman was begging for his help. Not knowing what he was getting himself into,he accepts.......
The Nightlife San Antonio is a gripping tale. The main characters were superbly written. Scenes were well detailed, enough for you to smell the blood in the air!
I absolutely loved that the characters are not perfect. They both have a dark nature to them. All things considered you grow to love this as it is what makes them strong as a couple. Its what makes them and the story different.
What makes this story great is that you have the story told in both Adrian's and Samantha's (La Reina) POV's. However the only downfull for me was that it didn't have enough of her POV.
The nightlife San Antonio is a lustful,action packed paranormal erotic romance aimed at Adult readers.

First of all, if you're looking for sparkling models with a fetish for blood but don't kill to get it, you're looking at the wrong series. If you're looking for sexual tops with mommy issues, wrong series.
Travis is back at it again! Like Blood Slave, we are introduced to another standalone title in this series that I have personally enjoyed. There were some scenes I had to play different songs to because I felt a soundtrack going off in my head as I read. The sex! Yes, the sex I have come to expect when reading anything by Mr. Luedke, is hard as steel and written with a realness rarely seen in erotica. Or maybe 'cause it's not so flowery and dainty. Heh. No complaints here because it makes me wanna elevate my game.
Introducing EMT worker Adrian this time around as our male protagonist in our action hero vampire freaknik, a former soldier who lives a life with few to no emotional attachments. At least until he saves the life of the nameless woman who was shot down and left for dead by La Eme. Said nameless woman escapes from the hospital. From there, the two are bound to one another in blood and fate, because the Mexican Mafia is on their trail when they find out the drug duchess they thought they executed is still alive. From there, Adrian is forced to go back to a life that he thought he left behind when he left the military.
This title, like the others, is gritty as hell with a touch of deadly hot steam. Another TKO from Luedke.
