Life, taxes and vampires—the three certainties in Erin’s life.
Erin Meyers knows all about the existence of vampires. He’s the guy who helped his twin brother Andrew find true love with the kilt-wearing Radney.
Erin’s used sex as a way to run from his emotions for a long time. It’s become a habit that he’s finally caught on to, and he’s growing tired of it. In fact, he’s growing tired too easily in general.
A doctor’s visit leaves him fearing for his life. When he encounters a friendly vamp he knows out at the club. Erin breaks his no-vamps rule and takes Jude home with him. Together, they burn up the sheets, and Erin finds himself willing to spend more than one night with Jude. Soon, a relationship blooms, but the bad news Erin gets might put an end to any dreams he had for the future.
This was a sweet story. Despite being the sixth book in a series I have read no other books in, I wasn’t lost or missing anything. In fact, there’s just enough to make me want to read the rest of the series now. It was a quick read and the pacing was fast. The story skims some events however there is enough detail in the important parts that you never feel like part of the story wasn’t there.
I really liked how Erin and Jude knew each other already. They had a base to start their relationship and it made the quick pace easier to keep up with. I loved how their feelings for each other grew quickly and how they handled those feelings.
The plot line with Erin’s illness was a bit of a surprise. I wasn’t expecting what his illness wound up being. Or for how he and Jude reacted to it. I pictured that going differently so it was a pleasant surprise to be wrong. It works so much better how it happened.
I loved the ending. It was so sweet and perfect for these two. Watching them get their full and complete happy ending was wonderful. You can tell they truly will be happy together for eternity.
The novella worked and I truly enjoyed the length. However I would not have said no to more on page of the building of their relationship, their struggles with Erin’s illness, and how they handled being together after.

Evenings are reserved for pounding away at the keyboard, as are early morning hours. Sleep? Doesn’t happen much. Writing is too much fun, and there are too many characters bouncing about, tapping on Bailey’s brain demanding to be let out.
Caffeine and chocolate are permanent fixtures in Bailey’s office and are never far from hand at any given time. Removing either of those necessities from Bailey’s presence can result in what is known as A Very, Very Scary Bailey and is not advised under any circumstances.
