Book Description:

Roman Draganesti is charming, handsome, rich...he's also a vampire. But this vampire just lost one of his fangs sinking his teeth into something he shouldn't have. Now he has one night to find a dentist before his natural healing abilities close the wound, leaving him a lop-sided eater for all eternity.

Things aren't going well for Shanna Whelan, either. After witnessing a gruesome murder, she's next on the mob's hit list. And her career as a dentist appears to be on a downward spiral, because she's afraid of blood. When Roman rescues her from an assassination attempt, she wonders if she's found the one man who can keep her alive. Though the attraction between them is immediate and hot, can Shanna conquer her fear of blood to fix Roman's fang? And if she does, what will prevent Roman from using his fangs on her?

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.
