Save a Horse, Ride a CowBOY: Under the Waves by Miss Dare

Sometimes Jasper would rather ride a boy than his faithful steed...

This week we’re going to take a look at Under the Waves by Miss Dare.

Jasper is a vampire who lives alone. He doesn’t need companionship and is fine living a solitary existence. Feeding comes easy to him because he can easily manipulate the emotions of both men and women and seduce them into willingly give their life-yielding blood for his consumption. However, Jasper suffers from extremely dark and scary thoughts, often finding solace at the bottom of the ocean where everything is quiet, still and peaceful. When he comes across a homeless young man and begrudgingly offers him shelter, his life is forever changed…but is it changed for the good or bad?

This has to be one of the most emotionally charged stories I’ve ever read in fanfiction. Jasper is cold, hard and unfeeling. He doesn’t get close to anyone, so the arrival of Edward is quite a change for him. Seeing the friendship between the vampire and young man is both sweet and difficult to watch as readers witness Jasper’s many warring emotions and feelings. I believe, deep down, that Jasper wants better, but he’s just too afraid of the unknown and disappointing his new, unexpected friend.

Although dark and angst-ridden, Under the Waves in a great story if you’re in the mood for something different. It’s not all roses and puppies, but it will stir your emotions and make you root for its very flawed main character.
