Astor is tired—tired of his family and the way they never listen to his advice, and tired of being in love with his agent, Tennyson, who after a one night stand made it clear he preferred to keep things professional. The only thing Astor's not tired of is his job researching haunted inns and hotels to prove just how haunted they're not.
His latest book is about a notorious inn in the middle of nowhere, and a haunting he suspects has more to do with real werewolves than fake ghosts. It will provide fodder for an excellent non-fiction book, the novel he's secretly writing, and be so distracting he'll finally be able to get over Tennyson.
Except when he arrives it's to find that Tennyson is already there, with every intention of keeping Astor company through the holidays.
This short read, clocking in at 14,000 words / 55+ pages, was a lot of snarky and adorable fun.
We aren't told precisely how old Astor, the head of his vampire family is; however, he definitely feels that it's old enough that they should all listen to his advice on how to best live their lives, dammit.
Tennyson is Astor's literary agent, for his successful series of ghost debunking novels. He's hot and has a calming influence on both Astor's abrasive personality and his disgruntled little vampy soul.
Astor is delightfully bitchy, which Tennyson finds both humorous and endearing, unlike nearly everyone else with whom Astor comes into contact.
The night before Astor was set to meet his new agent, Astor had an amazing one-night-stand, but Mr. Right was gone by morning. I think we all see where this is going, right?
Yep, the new literary agent is none other than the irresistible Mr. Right from the night before, Tennyson, who Astor is now forced to work with, day in and day out.
Ahhh, the sexual tension is delicious. It's like the salsa on my enchilada. I would say mayo on my hot dog, but I'm not a sleazy, predictable man-ho. Shut it, Dani, Jewel, Ele and Renee! :- P
Anyway, as I was saying, this was a very fun, short read for me, so if you're in the market for some snarky fluff, I'd highly recommend this 4-star story of vampires, werewolves and the men who love them.
