When I first looked at the title of this book I did not know what to think. Once I started reading I was really surprised, and in a good way. The minute I began reading, I couldn’t stop. Besides vampires, the author gives us other paranormal creatures such as werewolves and ghouls!
There was definitely an element of humor, and more than once I found myself laughing out loud. Aside from humor, the storyline was interesting, with some romance and mystery which only drew me deeper into the tale.
The story centers around Audra . Using the stage name Claudia, she gets a job in a strip club to put herself through college. While working she meets the handsome, and mysterious Darren Von Eldon, who will become her maker. Aside from the two main characters the author has created some other unique and amusing personalities.
The book’s ending left it wide open for a sequel. In fact, the only thing that put me off about the book was the ending. I believe the author was going for a cliffhanger, but it came off as too abrupt. With that being said, I am excited about what happens next. I was so entertained by this first book I will absolutely read the next one!
Her best friend is a werewolf. Her boyfriend is a ghoul. And she really, REALLY can’t stand her vampire husband.
Trying to juggle college tuition and rent, young Audra Perez seeks a fast fix to her financial woes by auditioning as a stripper for the Hoochie Coochie Club. What she didn’t expect was to actually be chosen. Barely a few months into her new job, she becomes acquainted with a mysterious, distinguished gentleman by the name of Darren Von Eldon, and they secretly begin dating against club rules. Then one passionate night at his beach house changes Audra’s life forever.
Now as a newly-awakened vampire, this only adds to her day-to-day mundane burdens. Refusing to drain humans, she hunts birds for nourishment, and finagles a way to avoid going to classes during the day. But bigger problems loom ahead. Radical cops that know about her kind roam the night, seeking to destroy any and all ‘monsters’, and her best friend’s family has a bone to pick with Audra’s. Headless bodies are turning up on vamp and were turf, each side blaming the other for the murders. It’s up to Audra and her friend Lu to figure out who’s doing the killings, and their search leads them beneath the city streets to encounter an abomination neither one of them will ever forget.
And the relationship issues? Well, it’s not easy dealing with a boyfriend and a vampire husband, so let’s not even go there…
