Synopsis

Finn
Getting into the vampire-only detective unit was the easy part; what’s going to be more difficult is dealing with my new partner, an ancient vampire who keeps threatening to eat me. The unit has never had a human in it, and Marcus—or as I like to call him, Fangy McFangface—would really prefer to keep it that way. He’s grumpy, short-tempered, and broody, but I have a way with words and I know he’s starting to like me, even if he swears he’s not. But what he doesn’t know is that I didn’t join the unit because I was tired of being a homicide detective, I joined because there is someone after me. They’ve already taken enough from me and I’m afraid they’re going to take all of me if I don’t find someone to help. That’s all Marcus was supposed to be, but now, he’s so much more and I can’t imagine my life without him.

Marcus
The moment the pesky human walked through that door, I knew I had to get rid of him. He’s charming and almost everyone else instantly loves him, but he doesn’t understand how risky it is being part of this unit as a human. But as I get to know the stubborn man, I learn that perhaps he’s not as naive as I once thought. And maybe he’s what I needed to realize there is more to life than just work and my dog. A group arises who is threatening to disrupt the alliance between the humans and the vampires, but Finn is the one who shows me how strong that alliance can be and reminds me why it’s worth protecting. When threats hit closer to home, I realize I would do anything for Finn because he’s brought so much joy to my life—and because he’s mine.

This 105k word book contains: A creative use for undergarments, unintentional splits, a wolfhound who just wants to be a part of things, a vertically challenged human who still manages to wrap every vampire he meets around his little finger, the best date ever, possessiveness, really awkward dancing, some workplace revenge, and just a bite or two. Or three.




Review

Fabulously written story with a great mix of humor, tension, and suspense, with a big strong vampire who struggles hiding his feelings and falling hard for this very small annoying hilarious, but very lovable human. One who has a lot of secrets, one very threatening enemy and a bunch of vampires who want to protect him. Emphasis on humor, feelings and suspense goshhhh it was the best of the best!
.
Finnigan Hayes is a homicide detective and Marcus Church is part of the VRC—Vampire Related Crimes.

For certain specific reasons Finn wants to join VRC, he succeeds, and is partnered with Marcus. Finn loves to tease the big, grumpy vampire Marcus, who wants to get rid of him asap.
Marcus doesn’t want this infuriating little human; he shows what an arrogant bastard he is, Finn can handle him and loves being a lovely pain in the ass, or more his lovely pain in the ass.

“Is it because I don’t gnaw on people? I mean, I can give a mean hickey”

The humor is one of a kind, so delightful. The title says a lot ;)

“I tried my hardest to be late, but I also hate being late, so somehow I ended up being perfectly on time.”

These lines, they cracked me, in the context it fits perfectly, it was so delightfully funny.

Marcus does everything in his power to scare and run Finn off. In his eyes, Finn is too vulnerable as a human. Finn is immune to all his attempts and it seems he has no fear, except for his biggest fear, his enemy.

They are on a big case, it seems some humans want to destroy the vampires by destroying the good relationship between vampires and humans.
It’s getting dangerous. There are several thrilling incidents.
Marcus is over his head and swooned by this annoying but oh so lovable human being, and he will protect him, period.

This story is a fast-paced must-read. I loved the suspense, I sat right up in my bed, reading, it was so thrilling! I couldn’t put it down and was amazed by this author’s writing and even more by all the delicious humor, all the various expressions of snarky, witty comments. Both Marcus and Finn were the most endearing characters. Their moments with sexiness and tenderness were so delectable and heartwarming, the whole draft was stunning.

  10. Five weeks ago my boyfriend broke up with me. It all started when i went to summer camp i was trying to contact him but it was not going through. So when I came back from camp I saw him with a young lady kissing in his bed room, I was frustrated and it gave me a sleepless night. I thought he will come back to apologies but he didn't come for almost three week i was really hurt but i thank Dr.Azuka for all he did i met Dr.Azuka during my search at the internet i decided to contact him on his email dr.azukasolutionhome@gmail.com he brought my boyfriend back to me just within 48 hours i am really happy.
