It was simple curiosity that led Augustin to the vampire dating site—he thought it must be a joke started up by a bunch of weirdos. Man, was he right—but it just so happens that those weirdos really are vampires, and when one shows up at his place, Augustin’s world is turned upside down.
First he’s got a psychotic vampire to deal with. Then he’s got one who is much more fun hanging around.
Except now that Augustin knows that vampires exist, he can’t be left alive. Or can he? When an alternative is offered up, Augustin doesn’t care for it, either. After all, he doesn’t want to be whisked off to some disgusting vampire den.
Tony’s the vampire next in line to lead the coven. He wants to be a fair man, and that means arguing against killing Augustin. If he’s also attracted to the sarcastic, adorable man, where’s the harm in that?
The attraction between Augustin and Tony is undeniable, but deny it is what they both try to do. Someone is going to have to bend or break.
Funny and quirky~ I loved Bailey Bradford’s My Life Without Garlic. Augustin has not been the luckiest in love and curiosity got the best of him when he came across an Internet vampire dating service—and applied. Little did he know that he’d soon be in hot water with the very real vampires that patronized the site.
Tony’s coven decided to check out the nosy human who was persistent in applying for a date even though the site kept denying him. What occurs is snarkiness at its best with a lot of sexiness.
Augustin immediately captured my attention. His smart mouth, his not so perfect physique, his insatiable appetite and his uncanny ability to annoy anyone whom he came in contact with. My kind of guy!
And Tony? Can I say swoon-worthy? Just picturing the quick and strong alpha-male vamp had my blood simmering and heart a-fluttering.
Ms. Bradford has the makings of a unique and peculiar paranormal series. One which takes everything we know about vampires and twists it to add humor and realism. She left a lot of room for future stories and I can’t wait to sink my teeth into each one. No pun intended.
My only drawback—Tony and Augustin never mated, so the ending is an HFN instead of an HEA. But, as a fan of Bailey Bradford’s work, I am certain she will not leave us hanging.
Hold onto your seats because the sex is off the charts and the jibes even better.
