Overview

What-did you think all vamps were pale, thin and brooding? Don't I wish.

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

Reading this fun take on vampires among us is like opening up a bag of M&Ms. You won¿t be able to stop until it¿s all gone! Gloriana St. Clair, Glory to her friends, is a curvy, centuries old vamp thanks to a man. She fell hard for the man vamp, Jeremy Blade, a hunky Scotsman she begged to transform her back in the Elizabethan era so they could be together always. Only over the years, they¿ve been off and on, mostly due to Blade¿s overprotective instincts. But Glory is no frail wimp. She may be ¿older than dirt¿ to use her words, but she¿s a modern woman intent on making her own way in the world. When Glory¿s stint in a Vegas revue ends, she heads for Austin, Texas to start her own business: Vintage Vamp¿s Emporium. But even as business revs up, Blade shows up to protect her. There¿s an evil vampire hunter stalking the undead and threatening to ruin all Glory has worked so hard for. Bartlett draws readers in immediately with her use of first-person and her powerhouse voice. She builds her world effortlessly, and through Glory¿s eyes, makes it all seem irreverent and just plain fun. Glory is an adorable character, someone easy to identify with when she sighs over her lush figure. As for Blade -- yummy! Real Vampires Have Curves is taking a keeper space on my bookshelf.

This was an amazing story that made you wonder who did what and what was going to happen next. I am the type of person that can read a novel in a day but this book made me walk through stores reading and my mom force me to eat. I just couldn't put it down not for a second. I admit I laughed and even felt sad when it was over I just wanted the next book too much for this one to be over so soon. It's a great read.

It’s really hard for me to write a bad review of a book because I can understand the amount of time and effort that writers put into their work. This particular book COULD have been so much better. I loved Glory- really I did. She is sassy, funny, witty, and overall one of those characters that you just relate with. Blade is a pretty cool vampire, just like Damion. However, when it came to the actual writing style… well, it was TERRIBLE. I feel like some words were left out of sentences. Half of them didn’t even make sense. As a reader, you should be able to go through the pages without filling in your own words for it to make sense. Not with this book though. It was totally wacky. So sorry, but this book was just not good. It could have been, just wasn’t. Overall rating: 2.5 stars Would read again?: No, and probably not the other books in the series either.

I thought this story started out kind of slow. At first I didn't think I was even going to like it. Yet the farther into the book you go, the more you want to keep reading. It's really fun to watch Glory "live" and learn. She might be 400+ years old but she still has A LOT of learning to do. The main character is trying very hard to separate herself from the man who changed her into a vampire, it's like you're watching her fall out of love only to keep falling in to it again, like an old married couple. She is in love with him but hates certain things about him and needs to prove to herself more than anyone else that she is a strong independent modern day woman. I was impressed by the unique ideas brought forth from this book. A Kevlar bra to protect against staking? Why hasn't anyone come up with that before? A heat-seeking device to detect vampires? Genius. Bartlett really raised the bar in paranormal chick lit!
