Title: Innocence to the Max
Author: SJD Peterson
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Genre: Paranormal, Vampire, BDSM
On his sixteenth birthday, Francisco “Cisco” Aguilar first sets eyes on Maximilian De Ferrari, owner of Wicked Grounds, an exclusive BDSM club. Cisco has been lost, unsure of what is missing in his life. Over a century old, Max leads a vampire clan, and Cisco is drawn to him in a way he can’t explain. The moment he sees Max he knows his quest isn’t about what he’s been missing, but who.
Five years’ wait seems more than Cisco can bear, but he perseveres and on his twenty-first birthday he walks into Wicked Ground. He’s unafraid to meet the vampire he’s sure is his destiny. Max has been waiting for him, too.
What Max has known all these years, and what Cisco soon discovers, is that more than fate is drawing them together. Iunctio Copula is a powerful binding link capable of restoring cold, dead hearts. With Max and Cisco bound, Cisco will be Max’s greatest weakness. Unable to let Max go, Cisco is thrust into a dark world, where he’s nearly powerless, left to fight for his life and his future with Max. Worse, he’s at the mercy of those who will use him—and hurt him—just to get to the powerful vampire.
I happen to really love Vampire books this one is really well done.
Max and Cisco as a couple were a little hard for me to get into at first but as the story unfolded I was drawn more and more into their story.
Cisco is truly an innocent and would do anything to please his master you can’t help falling in love with him.
Max is a powerful vampire and used to being obeyed instantly, he is a little out of his comfort zone where Cisco is concerned which causes him to unintentionally leave Cisco exposed to the worst kind of evil.
The plot slowly unfolds and we are being introduced to characters that we start to care about and a few we begin to hate.
Angelo is Max’s right hand man and Benny is Cisco’s best friend since kindergarten, I found these two characters fascinating, I really hope to read their story in a future book.
SJD Peterson is a master storyteller I recommend you give this book as well as her other works a try I don’t think you will regret it.
