Colin (Vampire's Mate Book 6) by Grae Bryan

If you're a fan of the Vampire's Mate series by Grae Bryan, then you are most definitely not going to want to miss Colin. Not only is this the last book in the series, but it's also this authors first MMM because it's finally time for our favorite ginger twins to get their mate!!

From the blurb:

Colin has spent his whole life waiting for something. He doesn’t know exactly what it is, or how to find it—all he knows is that he wants more. When the existence of vampires gives him hope for exactly that, he’s determined to find one for himself. And when he finds out Tucson holds two vampires without mates of their own, he’s willing to do whatever he can to get close.  

Fox has spent his whole life looking out for his brother. So when his twin shows signs of bone-deep boredom and ambivalence, who can blame him for wanting to grab on to anything that could bring him back to himself? And if that something happens to be the pushy, prickly blue-haired human on their doorstep—asking to stay, demanding to be fed on—then so be it.

Dane has spent his whole life feeling different. Even as a vampire, he doesn’t quite fit the mold—too attached to his brother, for one, with a platonic, fated bond that can’t be broken. So when a strange human comes into their lives and seems to accept them exactly as they are, who can blame him for starting to hope, just a little, for something… more?

Colin is a heated, fated-mates MMM paranormal romance with a HEA and no cliffhanger. It contains a grumpy, vampire-addicted human and the twin vampire brothers who are hungry for anything and everything he has to offer. It also contains steamy scenes and the moderate violence (and mentions of blood) one might expect from a vampire romance. While each book focuses on a different couple, the series is best enjoyed in order.

Jacqueleen The Reading Queen's Review:

"𝘋𝘢𝘯𝘦 𝘬𝘯𝘦𝘸 𝘸𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘍𝘰𝘹 𝘸𝘢𝘴 𝘵𝘢𝘭𝘬𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘢𝘣𝘰𝘶𝘵, 𝘸𝘩𝘦𝘯 𝘩𝘦 𝘵𝘢𝘭𝘬𝘦𝘥 𝘢𝘣𝘰𝘶𝘵 𝘊𝘰𝘭𝘪𝘯 - 𝘴𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘫𝘶𝘴𝘵 𝘧𝘦𝘭𝘵 𝘳𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵 𝘳𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵 𝘩𝘪𝘮. 𝘛𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦 𝘸𝘢𝘴 𝘯𝘰 𝘦𝘹𝘱𝘭𝘢𝘪𝘯𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘪𝘵, 𝘯𝘰𝘵 𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺. 𝘛𝘩𝘦𝘺'𝘥 𝘣𝘰𝘵𝘩 𝘵𝘢𝘬𝘦𝘯 𝘰𝘯𝘦 𝘭𝘰𝘰𝘬 𝘢𝘵 𝘩𝘪𝘮 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘥𝘦𝘤𝘪𝘥𝘦𝘥, 𝘖𝘶𝘳𝘴, 𝘸𝘩𝘦𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳 𝘤𝘰𝘯𝘴𝘤𝘪𝘰𝘶𝘴 𝘰𝘧 𝘪𝘵 𝘰𝘳 𝘯𝘰𝘵."

This was soooo GOOD! And I'm so sad this series is finished, but damn did it go out with a bang. I mean the asshole ginger twin dude bros and twinky Colin? Sign me the hell up! From the moment they appeared in Lucien and we found out Dane and Fox were identical twins whom shared a platonic bond, I knew I had to have their story. How was this going to work? Could they both form a romantic mate bond with another or were they destined to share only a platonic bond with each other and out of luck on the romantic front? Thankfully, all my questions were answered and more.

I absolutely LOVED how protective the twins were with Colin. They may be total dicks to everyone else, but not to Colin. He was special and not just because he reacted especially strong to his vampires' bites. Colin gave them something they desperately needed. A person to dote on and shower with the affection their inner vampires craved. And don't even get me started on the steam folks. It was HOT AF!!!

"𝘓𝘰𝘰𝘬 𝘢𝘵 𝘩𝘰𝘸 𝘸𝘦𝘭𝘭 𝘺𝘰𝘶'𝘳𝘦 𝘵𝘢𝘬𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘶𝘴. 𝘋𝘢𝘯𝘦'𝘴 𝘤𝘶𝘮 𝘪𝘯 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘵𝘩𝘳𝘰𝘢𝘵 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘮𝘺 𝘤𝘰𝘤𝘬 𝘪𝘯 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘢𝘴𝘴. 𝘠𝘰𝘶 𝘸𝘦𝘳𝘦 𝘮𝘢𝘥𝘦 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴. 𝘔𝘢𝘥𝘦 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘶𝘴."

Told you. HOT AF! In regards to the mystery of Riley that began in the previous book, that plotline is all wrapped up by the end. As is the series according to the authors note 😭 I know! I'm bummed too, but I'm also excited to see where Bryan takes us next!
