Cassie is a starving artist. She juggles 2 jobs just to barely make ends meet, so when she sees an ad for a huge apartment with crazy-cheap rent, she jumps at the opportunity, even if she is extremely suspicious of the deal. She should be. Turns out her roommate is a 300-year-old vampire who has just woken up from a 100-year hibernation and he is completely clueless about the modern world. Frederick J. Fitzwilliam dresses like an Austen character and he has no idea how to use any part of a kitchen, or the internet. He is ADORABLY clueless, and top-tier Book Boyfriend material. He also fills out a henley very well. Or so the author says. I certainly didn’t stop and picture Collin Firth for an unnaturally long time. ANYWAYS, the story gets much more entertaining once Cassie figures out Frederick is a Vampire. He was so clueless he really wasn’t going to be able to keep that up for long. He enlists Cassie to help teach him about the modern world. It feels like when I try to drag my husband into the current era – adorably frustrating. Some drama ensues, but there was no third-act breakup which delighted me! Also, the spice was short but very nice.
This is Jenna Levine’s first novel, and I found it to be just goddamn delightful. I will definitely look forward to more from her. I’m a sucker for a cute supernatural romance.
CBR 15 Bingo – Bodies, Bodies. Vampire Bodies have some weird rules like they can’t achieve orgasm without drinking at least a little blood. Also, while some vampires can fly, Frederick makes fruit appear when he is nervous. IT’S ADORABLE!
