LOVE LIFE By Matt Shaw

By Matt Shaw
I try not to post spoilers – but still – PROCEED WITH CAUTION
Matt’s stories are generally a ‘one sitting’ read. They remove all the padding that makes reading other authors seem tedious, and that’s one of the 47 reasons he is one of my favorites. But – it’s also the reason I find it difficult to review them without giving too much away.
I link him to every review, and (he has commented on other blogs, so I know he’s reading some) he’s been happy with them so far. With that being said…let’s talk a little about LOVE LIFE –

It’s Love & Loss, the Matt Shaw way.

The story takes you with ‘Stacey’ (she refuses to use her real name – Kim), on the last night of her working girl career, as she tries to earn enough money to run from what she has done. She meets Kirk as a ‘John’, but not your typical ‘John’. He found her ad as an escort, and wants nothing more from her than that. Just someone to spend time with. During the time they spend together, their individual pasts comes flooding back to them… is there a future in store for either of them? Can’t tell you! You must read the book! :p

This story isn’t a ‘Peter’ story, and it does not have the black humor, or the level of intense violence mixed with it. It’s a little tamer side of the author. Don’t think that you get off easy – it’s still a Matt Shaw!

I can not wait for CONSUMED. I just finished Chosen Routes (writing the review), The Cabin II: Asylum (review up), and just starting ALL GOOD THINGS, the last (oh-no!) In the HEA series. (Allthough… a little birdy told me to finish the 9 Months Trilogy for a surprise.)
I’m thinking his new one INFLUENZA will be a fun read, I think he was hopped up on Nyquil when he wrote it! Hahaha!!


Pfffffff Influenza is tame compared to my vampire book “Bitten” (if I ever get off my arse and actually write it, at least). Still balls deep in “The Lost Son” which is going to be extra horrific / tragic by the time I finish it. Longest book yet.

Anyway – nice to see some loving. Lonely world, being an author. End up talking to yourself and your characters and I never get to talk to them long before I murder them. Ah well. Never really was a people person.


Funny you mention “BITTEN”, Matt. Grizz was just saying that he wants a good vampire story that’s not the fluff of Stephanie Meyer or the romance of Ann Rice.
I turned him on to The Anita Blake series, but with as gory and violent as they can get, there is the same amount of graphic sex, too. (I wouldn’t classify it as erotica, haha)
‘BITTEN’ sounds like it’s just the ticket!
Thanks for checking out my new home. You can see the links to all your books on this page –
Only seven up right now. I’m writing for Chosen Routes & Romance Is Dead.
We’re gonna have to get on your interview, too! Don’t worry, I know you don’t take them seriously & I’ll write questions with that in mind – I’m hoping it will turn out as a pretty funny bit! THANKS!
Peace, Love, & Necrophilia
