What I am Reading: Fat Vampire
Death Has a Whole New Appetite.
When overweight treadmill salesman Reginald Baskin finally meets a co-worker who doesn’t make fun of him, it’s just his own bad luck that tech guy Maurice turns out to be a two thousand-year-old vampire.
And when Maurice turns Reginald to save his life, it’s just Reginald’s further bad luck that he wakes to discover he’s become the slowest, weakest, most out-of-shape vampire ever created … doomed to “heal” to his corpulent self for all of eternity.
But as Reginald struggles with the downsides of being a fat vampire (too slow to catch people to feed on, mocked by those he tries to glamour, assaulted by his intended prey and left for undead), he discovers rare powers in himself that few vampires have … and just in time, because the Vampire Council wants him destroyed as an inferior representative of their race.
Fat Vampire is the story of an unlikely hero who, after having an imperfect eternity shoved into his grease-stained hands, must learn to turn the afterlife’s lemons into tasty lemon danishes.
Okay, so I am reading this book and I’m thinking, no way, a fat vampire? Then I think of Jessica in True Blood who was the virgin. Each time she fed, she healed which made her a virgin all over again. Which brings me to this book.
He is a hearty sized fella which means that every time he feeds and heals, he comes back to his heavy self.
It’s not bad reading.
The first book in there series is only $.99 which isn’t bad for a book of this size.

What I am Reading: Eleven by Carolyn Arnold & Relax & Let Go
Eleven Rooms. Ten Bodies. One Empty Grave.
When Brandon Fisher joined the FBI Behavioral Analysis Unit, he knew he’d come up against psychopaths, sociopaths, pathological liars, and more. But when his first case takes him and the team to Salt Lick, Kentucky, to hunt down a ritualistic serial killer, he learns what nightmares are truly made of.
Beneath a residential property, local law enforcement discovered an underground bunker with circular graves that house the remains of ten victims. But that’s not all: there’s an empty eleventh grave, just waiting for a corpse. The killing clearly hasn’t come to an end yet, and with the property owner already behind bars, Brandon is certain there’s an apprentice who roams free.
As the FBI follows the evidence across the United States, Brandon starts to struggle with the deranged nature of his job description. And if the case itself isn’t going to be enough to push Brandon over the edge, he’s working in the shadow of Supervisory Special Agent Jack Harper, who expects nothing short of perfection from his team. To make matters even worse, it seems Brandon has become the target of a psychotic serial killer who wants to make him—or his wife—victim number eleven.

Falling in Like with Dick
A bit of tongue in cheek with a play on words in a new release From the best selling author of the Twisted Series, comes a sexy new standalone novel, RC Stephens. It came with a warning lable. Dick is a 90,000 word full length standalone novel. No cliffhanger. Due to strong language and sexual content this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
I read the blurb….
My name is Dixon Crawford—my friends call me Dick.
I’m rich, divorced and I have two small kids.
When it comes to women, I like to play the field. I don’t want to ever be tied down again.
I met Eden at a Presidential gala and, yes, I was intrigued. When school started in September I was shocked to learn Eden was my son’s kindergarten teacher…
I’d slept around with the lonely rich mothers at the school and had earned a reputation.
A reputation Eden knew about…
Eden was on the untouchable list—the band on her finger screamed, “I’m taken.” But when she got into trouble with her husband she asked me for help and I obliged.
I soon discovered that innocent Eden had secrets of her own. I also discovered she was beyond tempting. Giving her a little friendly help turns into something bigger than I ever imagined….
My name is Dick. I’m told I’m an asshole, but you will need to read my story and decide for yourself!
So I did…
Interesting read. The story is told from different points of view from the characters interweaving their back stories. I started reading with an eye roll at the A-typical alpha male with a walking boner. There are no real shockers when you are introduced to Dixon, the main character who is lonely, insecure and allergic to commitment. Eden, the female lead is also lonely, broken and loveless. One thing that many readers will find troubling, if you have a moral center, is that Dixon likes sleeping with married women. Yes, Eden is in an unhappy marriage that she is lying to herself and saying she is staying because of their son.
Two characters both afraid, find shelter in each other with a happily ever after.
My first read of this author.
Dixon is a likeable character with a readable storyline.
Dick will be on sale for 99 cents for a limited time. Then it will go up to the regular price of $2.99
