This book was extremely funny and the romance was rather cute. Picture this, extremely old vampire, highly feared among his peers, bites into the neck of a rubber doll (I will leave the way he does this for you to find out when you read the book) and ends up dislodging one of his fangs from the root. He needs to reattach the fang before the sun forces him into slumber and his gums seal clean. But when he makes it to the only clinic available, a 24 hour dentist office, the doctor present not only refuses to attach a "dog tooth" in a "human" but she's attacked by a group of mobsters from whom she was hiding.
Now tell me if that is not a recipe for a good comedy? Actually the book is paranormal Romance but I was still laughing at most of the craziness that ensues thanks to this little problem. The book has its slow moments but is a relatively quick read and a good laugh. It does have a few cheesy scenes and some clichés, but I didn’t mind them as much.
Throughout the story we go back and forth between Roman and Shanna. We get into their heads as the chemistry between the two grows (as well as their insecurities and their problems).
Overall I enjoyed the read, I won’t dash to read the next one, but I’ll keep the series in mind for a later time.
