This is a difficult book to describe. Fred Tompkins was hot by speeding stolen car, but saved by the car's driver- Daniel Blake who is a vampire. Fred has a cubicle job that he hates and Daniel likes to sit on the couch and watch Scooby Doo reruns. The book is pretty tongue in cheek early on. Fred is narrating his story as it happens. He has a dry, self depreciating sense of humor and it's pretty entertaining. Then we start to get a lot of world building darkening the light mood with stories about reincarnation and past lives and the vampire hierarchy. What starts as a funny, sweet story about Fred becoming a vampire and maturing as a person, entering his first relationship, quickly turns to something very different. Both Fred & Daniel are so likable that you want to keep reading about them. We do eventually come back to the heart of the story so to speak, but it seems like an odd detour... unless it's setting up a sequel. If that is the case then I can chalk it up to first book syndrome. If it's meant to be a stand alone, there was just too much heavy stuff crammed into what seemed like a very funny vampire romance.
