Josie wants what she’s never been able to have–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 just jumps into her favorite stilettos and heads out to the event of a lifetime, secretly hoping that she’ll come home with a party favor in the shape of a sexy coffin dweller.

But the great undead, much to Josie’s chagrin, aren’t just pale sexbots with pointy teeth waiting to satisfy her carnal desires; they are dangerous–and sometimes cranky. With a single-minded focus on fulfilling her sole sexual longing, Josie unwittingly entrenches herself in the twisted and sometimes antagonistic world of vampire relationships with no one to guide her, but herself.

The Vampire Relationship Guide, Vol 1 is a cute, quick read that will have you giggling in no time. The title of this book will give you a pretty good idea as to its contents. Josie goes through Evelyn Lafont’s how-to steps in such a way that you can’t help but smile. I was surprised by the ending when an element of danger is added. When I first picked-up this book I was expecting a light, chick-lit read which is exactly what I received but the twist at the end was a welcomed surprise. This novella is not only hilarious but it also has substance. Who would have guessed?

Josie has a one-track mind in this tale. Her sole goal is to get a vampire into bed. However, during her first date with one she quickly realizes that she knows absolutely nothing about them other than how pretty they are. The back-and-forth between her and Gregory is too funny for words. Josie automatically assumes that all of the stereotypes are true and as a result asks her date the most awkward questions imaginable. Gregory seems to take everything in stride and is overall a good sport in the face of her ignorance.

Walker is Josie’s second prospect in the vamp lover department. He’s the complete opposite of Gregory. He nails the bad-boy character to a tee. At first glance, the obvious choice is Gregory. He gives off a gentlemanly vibe and is very respectful towards Josie. However, as in most cases, first impressions can be deceiving. *Queue twist* I don’t want to give too much away as this is a novella so I’ll stop here. This story is a playful read that’s perfect for anyone who’s ever fantasized about what-if vampires were real.

    I’ve seen this one around the blog circuits, and your review helped me decide to give it a go. 🙂 It sounds cute, but the twist is what I’m curious about.
