Gloriana St. Clair is an eternally “full-figured” vampire-she just happened to be bloating when a sexy Scotsman sank his teeth into her. She and said Scot- Angus Jeremiah Campbell III, aka Jeremy Blade-have been on and off again for centuries, currently off. A couple hundred years has taught them how to press each other’s buttons-in good ways and bad.
Glory’s headed for Austin and a new business venture: Vintage Vamp’s Emporium. After all, she loves clothes, and she is an antique. Only problem is, there’s a billionaire techno-freak vampire hunter on the loose. Blade’s in total he- vampire mode, and wants Glory to move in with him so he can “protect” her. But it’s time for this vamp to explore her own powers.
Real Vampires Have Curves was cute, it wasn’t like I couldn’t put it down but the cast was enjoyable enough. From a full figured lead female to retail ghosts and a talking dog they all have a life of their own. However I do wish I’d gotten more out of them because the villain didn’t do much for me nor did I really understand the reasons why he was a villain to begin with.
The whole “glasses” thing didn’t really buy me and the mind control thing was a tad over the top in some instances but there is potential and I did enjoy reading the book but I didn’t really feel as if Bartlett really captured the essence of intensity in that the group needed to come together and stand up against the bad guys or why the bad guys were the bad guys to begin with.
I’m hoping that the author explores this in the next installment because it left this book feeling a little incomplete or empty which was kind of disappointing because again this book really does have potential to be so much more.
I still like that Glory wasn’t perfect and that she wasn’t all ego, she was flawed she had confidence issues but she also has hidden abilities that we only just get slight hints of which could be intriguing later on down the line.
I look forward to reading later installments of this series in hopes that the author really pulls through and delves deeper into the story lines that were sort of left open and unfinished in this book and that characters that intrigued me get more page time to win my heart.
