How to Vex a Vampire by Alice Winters narrated by Michael Ferraiuolo




Getting into the vampire-only detective unit was the easy part. What’s going to be more difficult is dealing with my new partner – an ancient vampire who keeps threatening to eat me. The unit has never had a human in it. Marcus – or, as I like to call him: Fangy McFangface – would really prefer to keep it that way.
He’s grumpy, short-tempered, and broody, but I have a way with words, and I know he’s starting to like me, even if he swears he’s not. But what he doesn’t know is that I didn’t join the unit because I was tired of being a homicide detective. I joined because there is someone after me.
They’ve already taken enough from me, and I’m afraid they’re going to take all of me if I don’t find someone to help. That’s all Marcus was supposed to be, but now, he’s so much more, and I can’t imagine my life without him.
The moment the pesky human walked through that door, I knew I had to get rid of him. He’s charming, and almost everyone else instantly loves him, but he doesn’t understand how risky it is being part of this unit as a human.
But as I get to know the stubborn man, I learn that, perhaps, he’s not as naive as I once thought. And, maybe, he’s what I needed to realize there is more to life than just work and my dog.
A group arises that is threatening to disrupt the alliance between the humans and the vampires, but Finn is the one who shows me how strong that alliance can be and reminds me why it’s worth protecting.
When threats hit closer to home, I realize I would do anything for Finn because he’s brought so much joy to my life…and because he’s mine.
Note: This book features a creative use for undergarments, unintentional splits, a wolfhound who just wants to be a part of things, a vertically challenged human who still manages to wrap every vampire he meets around his little finger, the best date ever, possessiveness, really awkward dancing, some workplace revenge, and just a bite or two. Or three.

This was super funny! I think, if you’re familiar with Alice Winters’ writing, she is all about the quirky characters and witty dialog.

This is that and some fun paranormal world building and crime fighting.

My personal taste runs to a little bit more romance in my romance, but I do always enjoy her stories and there is definitely HEAs for her characters.


Michael Ferraiuolo was the perfect choice for this. He is Finn personified and does a great job with the myriad other characters.

All in all very highly recommended for fans of comedy with their romance.
