Review of The Vampire of Vancouver (Lovers and Liars #2) by Liz Meldon
The Vampire of Vancouver is the second book in the Lovers & Liars series by Liz Meldon. Loki and Aphrodite are back, ridding the world of troublesome immortals for the Humans money and worship. Staying in a not so fancy hotel in Vancouver hunting vampires is not what Aphrodite had in mind when she accepted Loki's offer, and dealing with a softhearted woman who seems to be making this job harder than it should be is not keeping Loki in a good mood. With their two totally different attitudes and views on life can they work together or will this new mission push them apart?
This book was just as good as the first and kept me glued from the beginning. I love how these two clash yet work so well together to make a funny, adventurous and amazingly sexy read. The sex scenes themselves will keep you coming back for more. They aren't the same thing over and over, there's always something different and I haven't yet gotten bored with them like I can so easily do. The attitudes these two have is funny and keeps the book lighthearted even in the middle of a problem. Liz is doing a great job so far with this series, such great writing. My only issues right now are that I have to wait so long for the next book and that I dont have a Loki... I want a Loki please.

Shawna's Review of #1
The Maenad of Manhattan is the first book in the Lovers & Liars series by Liz Meldon. In a world where all the old Gods are almost completely forgotten Aphrodite has succumbed to a boring lonely where she writes love advise for columns and goes to bars to watch humans fall in lust or love. No more wars, no more worshipers, life for her is dull and boring. That is until a mysterious God enters the bar she is people watching at. She can feel his presence as soon as he steps in the place and he can feel hers. This leads to an amazing night where she realizes just how lonely she was with no other Gods in her life.
Being forgotten and losing your worshipers means losing your powers and eventually losing your life. Loki is not having it, so he has devised a plan. If he can help mortals get rid of other pesky immortals that are causing problems he can make them not only pay him cash but also pay him with worship which will help him get his powers back and keep him alive. Working alone never bothered him, then he sees Aphrodite. After spending the night with her he realizes not only does she still have some of her power but she's smart too and after she helps him kill a Maenad he realizes she can help him greatly in his quest for power.
All I have to say is... Thor who??? If every story or movie had Loki being this sexy I would totally switch sides and drool over him. This is going to be a great series and very unique too. I haven't found any other books that are like this one, where you have the entire world of old Gods in one story that is not only funny and adventurous but sexy as sin as well. Loki with his sexiness and "I don't give a damn" attitude totally clashes with Aphrodite and her "lets make love not war" attitude but at the same time the go so well together and it makes this story so much more interesting and addicting.
