Can a dark creature find a home in the light?
Robin appears to be a quiet, attractive young man, but the exterior hides his true vampire nature: ageless, unchanging, and bloodthirsty. His current obsession is Martin, the personable and generous owner of a coffee shop, The Warm Taste.
All Robin’s careful plans to remain unnoticed are ruined, however, when Martin asks him out on a date. Can Robin really have something so good and sweet as an ordinary relationship, after such a long existence of cold loneliness?
And if things fall apart, and Robin goes back to his old ways, will Martin survive it?
This is a book about a vampire who becomes enraptured with a human. Martin is an ordinary guy. He owns a coffee shop, loves his dog Nora, has devoted friends and co-workers. He’s 35 and from the very beginning of this story there’s this cloud of contentment that hovers above him.
Robin is a vampire who looks like he’s 17 and he pretty much stalks Martin. He hangs at his coffee chop and never drinks the coffee he orders, he breaks into Martin’s home and drinks his blood and them makes him forget he was there. You know, the usual creepy vampire stuff.
The best part of this story is when melodramatic Robin decides to embrace LIFE! It’s also the hilarious part as well. Robin is so lonely and depressed and filled with self-loathing it would take someone like Martin who’s so full of life to bring him back.
It’s emotional, funny, sad, and creepy at times. It is entertaining in places but there's something about it that doesn't sit right with me. Of course that's a personal opinion. Read it for yourself.
