The Delight

I was in the mood for something, quick, flirty, and funny so I snatched up The Vampire Relationship Guide v. 1 to begin the serial story of average gal Josie who starts off just wanting to meet and maybe spend an evening with a vampire.  How hard can it be since they’re out there in the open now, right?

Review

This freebie ended up being exactly what I thought it was.  It was an easy read that was mildly amusing.  Josie has some snark in her and a ton of naivete, but there’s no harm in her.  She can’t believe her luck when she catches the eye of a wealthy, debonair vampire, but also a scruffy, call it like he sees it one, too.  One is the vamp of her dreams and the other she wants to shout ‘in your dreams’.

It was fun, but not real complicated.  Josie has a little adventure and gets her eyes opened wide on the real vampire life and also learns quite a bit about herself at the same time.  The story wraps up the main plot thread and ends things on a happy for now note that will carry it onto the next leg of Josie’s adventures.

This one isn’t meant to be taken seriously, but if someone’s looking for a quick and light paranormal to fill an hour or two, this freebie (which is still free) is a good bet.

About Evelyn Lafont

Evelyn Lafont. Evelyn is a full-time writer living in Florida with her perfect orange kitties and totally alpha hubby who saves her from squirrels, stray dogs, glue and herself.

Her debut paranormal romance series, The Vampire Relationship Guide, is a four-novella romp that takes a satirical look at what could happen if a clueless human chick really dated a vampire. It’s also got some good sex and romance shoved up in it, making it a lovely four-course meal that won’t leave you feeling bloated after consumption.

Her newest series, Pack Mistress (Quick ‘n’ Dirty Erotic Paranormal Romance) follows the adventures of red wolf Pack Mistress Lorena as she satisfies the males of her south Florida pack while trying to find herself. It’s more serious than VRG, and more erotic. The novel is being released in serial format, with new 30-35 page installments every other month in 2012.

You can also read Evelyn’s essays and ramblings weekly on her blog or by visiting VampLure, the satirical monthly magazine inspired by The Vampire Relationship Guide series. You can also find some of the guest posts she’s written on The Bitch Blog, Book Love Blog, and The Weblog of Zoe Winters.

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

Exactly, Lauren. Made me laugh a bit and wrapped up quickly when I just wanted something for a little niche of time.

Great review. I do agree that this series is better read in order because of the small details that build up in the series.Sorry to hear that this book didn’t quite meet up to expectations although it still sounds like a solid read.

Thanks, Renee!
It has a good build all the way through the first arc and continues that connected feeling with the characters into the second arc so in order is definitely the way to go.

Yeah, it wasn’t bad, but it didn’t have what some of the previous books did for me. It took a long time to get to the heart of the story it felt like. Yeah, I’ll just look forward to the next one. 🙂

This one sounds great with the romance and adventure set in an exotic location. I like the sound of how they have to focus on staying alive and the romance slowly builds between them. The jungle setting sounds fun too. I hadn’t heard of this author before, but might check out one of her books as it sounds like a good one. Great review!

Sounds fun. I do like short reads and can let a little silliness go for novellas.

Yes, I was in the mood for a light one that didn’t take itself serious and could be read in one sitting. It did the job. 🙂

That sort can hit the spot now and again. Great for when life is really chaotic but you still want to get a little reading in 🙂

Sophia Rose

Yes, exactly. I don’t want a steady diet of the stuff, but now and then for a quick read is just right. 😉
