    “UNREPENTANT. UNIMPRESSED.AND TOTALLY UNDEAD. Eric’s got issues. He has short-term and long-term memory problems; he can”t remember who he ate for dinner yesterday, much less how he became a vampire in the first place. His best friend, Roger, is souring on the strip club he and Eric own together. And his girlfriend, Tabitha, keeps pressuring him to turn her so she can join him in undeath. It”s almost enough to put a Vlad off his appetite. Almost.

    Eric tries to solve one problem, only to create another: he turns Tabitha into a vampire, but finds that once he does, his desire for her fades — and her younger sister, Rachel, sure is cute. And when he kills a werewolf in self-defense, things really get out of hand. Now a pack of born-again lycanthropes is out for holy retribution, while Tabitha and Rachel have their own agendas — which may or may not include helping Eric stay in one piece.

    All Eric wants to do is run his strip club, drink a little blood, and be left alone. Instead, he must survive car crashes, enchanted bullets, sunlight, sex magic, and werewolves on ice — not to mention his own nasty temper and forgetfulness.

    Because being undead isn’t easy, but it sure beats the alternative.”

    Another awesome take on Vampires! It’s a gritty, violent and totally believable take on what being a vampire could be like for you or I. I loved it!  Eric is like “that guy”, you all know someone just like him, only he’s been turned, and he has a hell of a time with it, along with some rotten luck and “troubles” with women. J.F. Lewis is another new author and I’ll be looking forward to reading more of his work. Here’s hoping that this book is the first in a series!?

    Thanks for the great review! The manuscript for my proposed sequel (tentatively titled ReVamped) has been submitted to my editor and I hope to get the “yes, no, or change it” reply soon. I’ll be sure to keep you updated!

    Trust me, this book is well worth buying! It’s especially impressive as it’s also a debut novel, but I loved the down-to-earth grittiness of Jeremy’s writing style. It was so believable. 🙂
