Deeply in debt to a loan shark, oversexed dentist Cary Drewel lives in fear of foreclosure and bodily harm. His new practice is missing one rather crucial element: patients. Which, terrifyingly enough, is the one thing his creditors also don’t have.

Pierce Sharpe, a powerful vampire with a drinking problem—or, more accurately, a problem drinking—can’t feed through the pain

This is too funny. Full of (bad) puns, unlikely events and a dentists who thinks attracting vampires sounds like a good idea - until he meets his first one and has no idea that he's the real thing. Very entertaining.

Great story if you need a laugh, but not if you've been putting off a visit to the dentist. Horny dentist meets vamp with a fang-ache and pun-fest ensues. Yes, the tooth is out there! Clever and fun, and I enjoyed the unique characters. But smexing doesn't quite mix with some of the dental situations, so I couldn't give it 5 stars.
This witty little story is very entertaining, built around one scene where Cary and Pierce meet in the unusual setting of a dentist’s surgery, and find some delicious compensation together LOL. Excellent story for anyone nervous of the dentist, though it may be more aversion therapy than anything more distracting!

The humorous blurb sets the scene immediately, and this pace is kept up throughout. The initial scenes wit
3.5 stars.

As with any Storm Grant novel I expect humor and quirky characters that are not your average romance novel guys and with Sucks & Blows, she delivers that with Cary and Pierce. Cary is a dentist with an overactive libido and with his business going bust, he’s in debt to a creditor that breaks legs instead of foreclosing on you.

Enter, Pierce Sharpe, who walks into Dr. Cary’s dentist office and needs his teeth worked on: his vampire teeth. Cary initially thinks Pierce is just one ove

Sitting on your dentist's chair won't be the same again!

Cary has just started his practice and in an attempt to attract all the goth/emo guys in need of dental work, he writed on his business cards that he cures vampires. And guess what? A vampire knocks at his door...

Cary is horny, in debt, horny, clumsy, horny and horny. Pierce is a vampire with a temporary lisp and killer good looks. At the beginning Cary doesn't believe Pierce is a real vampire, but it doesn't take much time to lea
This is a super short story... Coming in under 20 pages. So, my review is going to be just as short!

Okay, first I have to tell you that this is a M/m book. So, for those of you that know this is not your cup of tea..... You will not hurt my feelings if just stop by to say hi! Just remember... One day, I might get this to be your cup of tea. **Evil grin** But for those of you that know this is your kinda reading.... Let's go....

Well, this is one super short story... But I giggled, I got hot... An
I’ll be honest. When I first saw the blurb for this one, I didn’t expect to like it. I’m a hard core vampire girl. I want my vampires dark, sexy and scary. My first thought was “Seriously? A Dentist and a vamp with bad fangs?” I hesitated. I was soooo wrong. This story… I loved. Love Love LOVED.

This was adorable. It was a fun, light, sexy, very unique little vampire tale. I’ve never read anything by Storm Grant before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Her writing is fantastic. Her sense of humor
What would happen if a vampire, like Pierce, has a toothache so he cannot feed? He comes to Cary, a dentist who put a sentence 'Vampires are welcome' on his ads, hoping to attract Twilight (and True Blood?) fans to his practice. Of course, in reality, Cory doesn't have any clue how to deal with real vampires. But Pierce didn't know that.

This is one funny book. How come nobody think of it before? After all, for vampires, tooth are their main organ! It's short, but it has some plot in it.
3.5 stars. Punny short m/m paranormal story about a perpetually horny dentist who, in order to convey his sense of humor, mentions on his business cards that he does vampires, too. He doesn't expect an actual vampire to show up in his office...
Funny! A dentist with a perpetual state of arousal has his first patient--a vampire with cavities in his canines. So many bad puns are thrown around you're groaning through the story. Quick, light read.
Bad puns abound! Cary was hilarious, so was Pierce's lisp. I would love to see more of Cary's interaction with the vampires (like Vlad the Inhaler, lol).
Mandy*reads obsessively*
Short story packed full of puns about a perpetually horny in debt dentist and his first vampire patient!
Funny and silly!!!! I loved all the puns - they made me smile. The entire book was a feelgood moment lol.
A fun read, that will get your spirits up! I loved this take on vampires - probably will reread again. :)
Those puns were really bad - and I couldn't stop giggling the whole time I read the story.
Sui Lynn
Cute, funny short story. Nothing deep here but it is a nice read. I enjoyed it.

3.5 stars. Very cute short story about an extremely horny dentist struggling to pay off the creditors who lent him money for his dental practice. He meets Pierce, a vampire loaded with cavities. Conveniently, Pierce can sustain himself on bodily fluids during the period of time it takes for his teeth to heal.

This is filled to the brim with terribly bad, yet funny, puns while these two find ways to help each other out. Nice, quick, lighthearted read.

Even vampires need dentist to give them some dental services, lol...

And the predator who was forced to be a vegetarian for a while, will have to resort to another way to fulfill his bloodthirst. And apparently, bodily fluids will do well as an alternative food.
A dentist with endless-and-uncontrollable-lust and a canine-less vampire with insatiable hunger? Now that's what we called perfect sex buddy pair. ;)
And need to guess that some hot "exercise" including 1 vampire, 1 dent

This is a short and cute story about a dentist whose sense of humor helps him land a patient that he could not even imagine.
3.5 stars - leaning to 4

Very tongue in cheek short.

I'm imagining the author writing this piece; chuckling as she clacked away on her keyboard.

S & B is a fun, light read - a perfect "pick-me-up".
this book was great....Storm Grant you hit it outta the park!
I found myself laughing & loved the quirky characters!
makes you wanna get involved w/ a vampire ! highly rec.
Cute story for what it was. 3.5 stars. Can I just say that I groaned BIG TIME at the name of every single character. Especially Chia, pet, and Cary. =)
This was so damn corny and cheesy and excessively punny...

I rather liked it, in a really weird sort of way...
It was really cute...wish it was longer though I dont want to be his patient. That's a real painful extraction.
Fun little read - short and sexy and steeped in quirky humour. Definitely a writer I'll seek out more by :)
It wasn't a story. Just an extended joke.
Marsha Spence
I really enjoyed this. Thought it was very funny!
Heather K (dentist in my spare time)
Excuse me!! A dentist story!!! GIMME!!
This was a quick little short story. I found it to be quite entertaining and the puns were horrendous but made it worth the read.
I enjoyed this, but the puns were a bit overkill.
