The Vampire Relationship Guide, Volume 1: Meeting and Mating by Evelyn Lafont
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Josie is your average girl who just wants one simple thing to make her feel complete–sex with a vampire. When she receives an invitation to a party thrown by one of the world’s richest vamps, she doesn’t stop to question her luck; she jumps into her favorite stilettos and heads out to the event of a lifetime, secretly hoping that she’ll come home with a sexy party favor.
But the great undead aren’t just pointy toothed hotties waiting to satisfy Josie’s carnal desires–they are dangerous. With a single-minded focus on fulfilling her sole sexual longing, Josie unwittingly entrenches herself in the twisted world of vampire relationships with no one to guide her, but herself.
I’m really glad I read The Vampire Relationship Guide. It was a ton of fun. It’s the perfect read if you are looking for something fun, fluffy, and full of snark. I laughed a lot. It is a cute romance story that has a blast poking fun at the multitude of vampire novels currently coming out. There is no denying that the genre is tired and quite a bit overdone. It’s nice to see an author acknowledge that and put her own fun twist on it.
There’s not a whole lot to say, except that it’s short, sweet and an enjoyment to read. It’s the perfect book to pick up if you don’t have a lot of time, but want to lost yourself for awhile. It only took a couple of hours to get through and I like to take my time with my books.
It could have used one more run through with a copy-editor, because there were a few grammatical errors that were just stupid and overlooked. I’m not sure what happened there, but it really doesn’t detract from the experience at all. It’s just something I have to point out.
I am looking forward to reading the next one. I don’t know for sure when I will be able to get to it, but I fully intend to as soon as I can fit it in. I won this book in a contest from The Bookish Babes and I’m very glad that I did. Thanks Andrea!
