Hot Damned, Book 1
Synopsis: Vampyres don’t exist. They absolutely do not exist.
At least I didn’t think they did ‘til I tried to quit smoking and ended up Undead. Who in the hell did I screw over in a former life that my getting healthy equates with dead?
Now I’m a Vampyre. Yes, we exist whether we want to or not. However, I have to admit, the perks aren’t bad. My girls no longer jiggle, my ass is higher than a kite and the latest Prada keeps finding its way to my wardrobe. On the downside, I’m stuck with an obscenely profane Guardian Angel who looks like Oprah and a Fairy Fighting Coach who’s teaching me to annihilate like the Terminator.
To complicate matters, my libido has increased to Vampyric proportions and my attraction to a hotter than Satan’s underpants killer rogue Vampyre is not only dangerous . . . it’s possibly deadly. For real dead. Permanent death isn’t on my agenda. Avoiding him is my only option. Of course, since he thinks I’m his, it’s easier said than done. Like THAT’S not enough to deal with, all the other Vampyres think I’m some sort of Chosen One.
Holy Hell, if I’m in charge of saving an entire race of blood suckers, the Undead are in for one hell of a ride.
Review: I had read some nice novels by Robyn Peterman, and I realized that I had this novel about my kindle, probably picked up one day when it was free. I don’t read a lot of vampire novels anymore, but I was quite curious to dive into this one.
Astrid didn’t think that by wanting to stop smoking, she would become a vampire and it’s far from being easy. In addition to the arrival of a guardian angel who looks like Oprah, a man who must teach her how to fight and who looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger, a best friend who is much more than she thought and small entities that our heroine considers as her children, Astrid is going to have to deal with a very sexy vampire known as Ethan, but even worse a Chosen One status that she really doesn’t understand!
I had a really good time with this novel. A bit in the Queen Betsy style by MaryJanice Davidson, the author allows us to get carried away in a light story full of vampires, but also of other various creatures. The little creatures were adorable and I was looking forward to learning more about them. And then, I must admit that I wasn’t really expecting such a turn of events at the end, so it was a nice surprise.
Many things were launched and I must say that I’m curious to read the following to see how Ethan and Astrid are going to get out of it!
