Overview

Not everyone who gets turned into a vampire becomes a sexy rock star.

At twenty-seven, Vincent Lester still looks seventeen, acne and all. He lives in his parents' basement, playing PlayStation and barely surviving by licking the blood off raw hamburger trays. His parents nag him to find a day job, but he's afraid the sun will make him burst into flame.

One night at the bar, Vinny picks up a drunk girl, literally, and gets his first taste of fresh, human blood. Then things get really weird.

What can I say about Shannon Ryan’s vampire novella, Fangs for Nothing? Simply put, it’s a cynical tale about a loser vampire who finally makes it big. It’s bawdy, ridiculous, and downright stupid; but I must admit, despite all this, I found Ryan’s vampire spoof quite amusing. I’m not a big fan of vampire fiction, but I found this quick read a refreshing twist in the otherwise over taxed genera. We’ll see if Ryan has any future plans for his uncanny vampire stooge and his motely brood.

Tongue in cheek, anti-romantic vamp novella. Highly recommended for fans of paranormal chick lit, even though the main character is a male vampire who just happens to be a cross-dresser because the only job he can find that works around his "sunlight allergy" involves makeup. There's a few editorial mishaps, but the humor makes up for them. I look forward to a sequel. I won a free copy of this book from LibraryThing in exchange for a review.
