Joe has really turned his life around. With help and support from his girlfriend Evelyn, he has
conquered his addictions, left foster care, finished high school and is ready for college.
As much as Joe longs for normality, his life is never going to be that way. Evelyn is a vampire,
and wants him to become one too. That’s a bit too much commitment for Joe. He can’t even
manage monogamy, and indiscriminately beds both men and women behind Evelyn’s back.
Things begin to unravel for Joe when he tries to help a friend cure himself of his many ailments
with a vampire’s blood. Things go badly and Joe blames himself and turns back to his old
addictions for succor. But can Joe cope with the strongest addiction of all?
