What The Blurb Says
Some things in life just might be worth giving up garlic for.
It was simple curiosity that led Augustin to the vampire dating site—he thought it must be a joke started up by a bunch of weirdos. Man, was he right—but it just so happens that those weirdos really are vampires, and when one shows up at his place, Augustin’s world is turned upside down.
First he’s got a psychotic vampire to deal with. Then he’s got one who is much more fun hanging around.
Except now that Augustin knows that vampires exist, he can’t be left alive. Or can he? When an alternative is offered up, Augustin doesn’t care for it, either. After all, he doesn’t want to be whisked off to some disgusting vampire den.
Tony’s the vampire next in line to lead the coven. He wants to be a fair man, and that means arguing against killing Augustin. If he’s also attracted to the sarcastic, adorable man, where’s the harm in that?
The attraction between Augustin and Tony is undeniable, but deny it is what they both try to do. Someone is going to have to bend or break.

Boredom leads Augustin to sign up for the vampire dating sites. After he finds out that they are, in fact, REAL vampires and not just goth-heads messing about, his life is in danger. But vampire Tony can't bring to deal with Augustin the way he should. He can't bring himslef to deal with the snarky, sexy man who has gotten under his skin. It all boils down to one question - Can Augustin give up his favourite seasoning, or the love of his life??
Different, funny, and sexy.
Augustin is out of shape, and he knows it. But the book concentrates on his wobbly bits just once too often for me. There are some really REALLY funny dead jokes here, but after a while, they seemed a little...forced...and not so funny. I also didn't connect too much with the characters. WHY?? Dunno.
But I did like Augustin. His way of dealing things shakes the vampires up somewhat, and that did amuse me.
An enjoyable way to spend an hour or two, but something wasn't quite right for me.
