Review - Bane's Choice by Alyssa Day

Bane's Choice
by Alyssa Day
Series: Vampire Motorcycle Club, #1
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: October 26, 2020

Vampires are back for a reason! Meet the sexy, dark hero Bane in New York Times bestselling author Alyssa Day's smokin'-hot romance.

Bane lost his humanity ages ago. Nothing is more important than protecting his Vampire Motorcycle Club from the death magic invading his territory. The most ancient of vampires, he seeks cold, unfeeling, bloody vengeance...until a frustratingly sexy human doctor is thrust into his path. She tempts Bane to distraction. And distraction is deadly in his world.

Buttoned-up and meticulous Dr. Ryan St. Cloud never thought she’d find herself in the mix of a motorcycle club, let alone one full of terrifyingly badass vampires. Or how intrigued she is by their dark and enigmatic leader, who seems balanced on the knife’s edge of killing her...or claiming her.

But Bane’s choice is harder than it seems, because when that danger hits too close to home, he’s forced to choose between her life and everyone else’s…

Alyssa Day has created an intriguing new world, blending vampires (and werewolves) and motorcycle clubs, putting new twists on paranormal lore, and creating a cast of characters that are colorful and funny and are so much more than they seem on the surface.

Bane is your typical alpha dominant vampire. He’s also old and a bit broody. He hasn’t had fun in centuries, but when he runs into Dr. Ryan St. Cloud, someone he can’t compel, she does the one thing he never thought could happen – she gives him back hope. These two were a lot of fun, Ryan had some very funny lines that had me laughing out loud and it was great watching her stand up to Bane and demand more from him. Bane was so out of his element with Ryan, she was not your typical heroine, and he had such a hard time understanding little things – like why locking her in a room for her own protection might get her just a little bit angry!
A rush of wind and a chill in the air warned Ryan that Bane had arrived, so she wasn’t surprised when he put an arm around her shoulder. “She’s here with me.

She knew that voice – or was it Voice? He was projecting his compulsion out to the entire room.

And it pissed her off.

“Maybe you could just pee on my shoe next time,” she said sweetly, moving out from beneath his arm. “I’m sure that would mark your territory.”
There was a lot going on in this book. As the first book in a new series there were a lot of characters and world-building that needed to happen which caused this to be a bit of a slower read since I needed to keep track of the characters and backstory. There were some good action scenes that helped move things along and the groundwork was laid for many other story lines in this series.

Overall, this was a dark paranormal story that had some real laugh out loud moments with action and a bit of mystery that kept me engaged throughout. There wasn’t much of a focus on the MC aspect of the book, but I really enjoyed the different types of characters and the lore around vampires, werewolves, witches, etc. that Alyssa Day has included as part of her world.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book I received from the publisher via NetGalley.
