Today’s book is Real Vampires Hate their Thighs by Gerry Bartlett (who happens to live in the Lone Star state with me!)

This book is #5 in a series and I will admit I haven’t read books 1-4 but I have a feeling it is ok I just miss out on some of the back story between the main characters.


REAL VAMPIRES HATE THEIR THIGHS, book 5 in the REAL VAMPIRES series, sends Glory St. Clair to Hollywood for the Grammy awards show with rock star Israel Caine. Here’s her chance to walk the red carpet and be on national TV.

When she meets a vamp diet guru who promises he can help her finally shed those extra pounds she’s been carrying for over four hundred years, she’s all for it. But he’s longtime lover Jeremy Blade’s ancient enemy. Could this guy have a hidden agenda? And can vamps really lose their curves?

When the diet drugs begin having strange side effects a vamp war threatens to break out. Just what or who is Glory willing to sacrifice for her dream of being thin?

Today’s teaser comes from page 172:

“You’ve been an excellent client, Glory. Despite a few glitches, your weight loss has been truly remarkable.  I should have asked you to do a video diary for me.”

Wow, I cannot believe it has been 2 weeks since I posted anything.  Bad me!  I have been reading but just haven’t felt like writing.  Have you ever had those days weeks?

Today’s Teaser book is one that I am reading for my bookclub.  It is Just One of the Guys by Kristan Higgens


From the back of the book: 

So when journalist Chastity O’Neill returns to her hometown, she decides it’s time to start working on some of those feminine wiles.  Two tiny problems: #1 – she’s five feet eleven inches of rock-solid girl power, and #2 – she’s cursed with four alpha male older brothers.

While doing a story on local heroes, she meets a hunky doctor and things start to look up.  Now there’s only one problem: Trevor Meade, her first love and the one man she’s never quite gotten over – although he seems to have gotten over her just fine.

Yet the more time she spends with Dr. Perfect, the better Trevor looks. But even with the in-your-face competition, the irresistible Trevor just can’t seem to see Chastity as anything more than just one of the guys….

Today’s teaser comes from page 282:

“Could you tell?  That he was, you know….gay?”

I haven’t gotten to this page yet but now I’m curious as to who they are referring to in the cast of characters.  I don’t think it is a major character though.

Happy Reading and I have a book review and interview with the author coming up very soon!
