Gilly. Big, beautiful, smart-mouthed, one hell of a lady and oh, yeah — a werewolf who works on a faux-reality show. It’s a living. Warren. Die-hard cynic with the attitude and build of a Navy SEAL. Does not believe in the supernatural. He’s in for the surprise of his life. Dusty. A toned, muscled, devastatingly handsome teddy-bear of a guy. Loves to play games. Loves Gilly and Warren. He’s not prepared for what’s going to happen.

Together, the three of them are an unstoppable force. Sex, love and friendship rule the day and rock their world. That’s the way it’s always been. But they’re about to be put to the test. One night at a dance club plus one stranger in a ridiculous vampire costume equals a whole lot of trouble. Especially when the stranger turns out to be a real vampire. One who has some really nasty plans for Gilly, Warren and Dusty.

The problem with his plan? Gilly doesn’t take anything lying down, and she’s ready to kick some ass…

Gilly loves her men, that is unquestionable she demonstrates this in her willingness to both please them as well as do what it takes to get them back. It is sweet the way she cares for them, even when they do not know how truly much she protects them from the things that go bump in the night.

Gilly by far is the standout character in this story. She definitely brings a bright and at times dark aspect to the story. As it is told from her point of view, you get a lot of her quirky personality which I really appreciated. Even when her and her boys are facing possible death she still manages to keep her quick wit and smart mouth. She definitely keeps the story rolling and moving forward with plenty of entertainment.

Dusty and Warren’s characters felt a little flat at times on the other hand. They both had their own personalities. Dusty being the loveable and naive guy you just can’t help but to love. Warren very militant and logical and holding things together usually. I just would have liked to have seen a bit more about these characters as they made each character so different. They were a modern day odd couple, and seeing more of that would have made the ménage relationship felt more genuine and long lasting for me.

Dracula proves to Dusty and Warren that not only are vampires real, but they have more control over mortals and even werewolves than you can imagine. It is kind of scary how easily Dracula is able to take control over Dusty and Warren. Really makes me wonder if it is possible. This antagonistic conflict is a large part of the story, as Dracula easily makes them bend to his will and proves he can use them as puppets in any way he sees fit. I liked this element to the story, but other elements in the story felt a bit to clichéd to me and made it felt a bit disingenuous.

This story features sex, sex and more sex. There is no shortage of erotica here, and I loved it. I did label it forced as Dracula does force the parties to do sexual acts when they are under his spell, but it is done in a way that is tasteful for the genre and definitely not too much for this girl. Though I did cringe at a few of the acts wondering if it was painful, the characters seemed to enjoy themselves so how could I not enjoy it with them? I like my erotica with plenty of kink and eroticism so this was perfect for me.

I would say if you want a light, fun yet kinky story this will definitely fit the bill. It was definitely an easy read, and may even make you wish you can be mentally stimulated by a vampire or two yourself.
