Review: Real Vampires Have Curves

Title: Real Vampires Have Curves
Series: Glory St. Clair #1
Author: Gerry Bartlett

Date Finished: December 29th, 2010

Summary of Book:
What-did you think all vamps were pale, thin and brooding? Don't I wish. Gloriana St. Clair is an eternally "full-figured" vampire-she just happened to be bloating when a sexy Scotsman sank his teeth into her. She and said Scot-Angus Jeremiah Campbell III, aka Jeremy Blade-have been on and off again for centuries, currently off. A couple hundred years has taught them how to press each other's buttons-in good ways and bad. Glory's headed for Austin and a new business venture: Vintage Vamp's Emporium. After all, she loves clothes, and she is an antique. Only problem is, there's a billionaire techno-freak vampire hunter on the loose. Blade's in total he-vampire mode, and wants Glory to move in with him so he can "protect" her. But it's time for this vamp to explore her own powers.

Cute cover. Especially how it shows Glory in her antique shop. "Vintage Vamp's Emporium", don't you just love that store name? It sounds so cool! I think for this review I'll tell you what I hate and like about a couple of the characters.

Glory: She's creative. She's strong. Except when it comes to Blade. Or Damen. 
Blade(Jerry): I like that he's protective of Glory. But, seriously, give her a break! You can't always protect her.
Damen: *shudders* I hate his character, but in a way, he kind of had to be there. No Damen, no story. 
Glory's Guard Dog(sorry, completely forgot his name!): He's cute and protective. I get that he was born to help protect Glory, but he's kind of annoying.

I like the whole plot. The way she moved to Austen and Blade comes to *command her that she had to live with him. And when that didn't happen, he stayed there. He is totally in love with her! But, then again, there's somewhere deep down in her that loves him too. 
And then the vampire hunter comes into town and their on their toes trying not to get killed. But I don't wanna tell you guys too much. Where's the fun in that?


Review coming soon:
