My Vampire Cover Model - Karyn Gerrard My Rating: 3.5 stars: Liked it - recommend (B+)

Originally posted: http://www.twimom227.com/2012/10/review-my-vampire-cover-model-by-karyn.html

Burn is a vampire who has lived his lonely existence changing is name and locale about every 20-30 years. Currently, he works as a romance book cover model - ironically for a vampire series. But when the author's niece, Deanna (aka Dean), walks into a signing, Burn recognizes immediately that she is his soul mate--the woman he is destined to make is own. However, Burn has spent so many years isolating himself from emotional attachment that he's unsure of how to proceed. 

The characters are fairly straight forward - we get a bit of back story as the pair get to know one another. Both are fairly lonely, but neither has any major past trauma to keep them apart. The biggest issue is that Dean is human, and therefore a mortal. Burn internally agonizes on what must be done IF she wants to claim him as much as he wants and needs her. There were are few spots where I felt Burn was a bit stalkerish and came off somewhat psychotic, but overall, the whirlwind romance was handled just fine. The dialogue between the pair was sweet, but sometimes bordered on simple and cliche. However, honestly, it doesn't detract from the enjoyment of the story. 

Overall My Vampire Cover Model is a sometimes campy, yet enjoyable look at the Paranormal Romance (PNR) genre. The light-hearted, enjoyable novella pokes a little fun at the PNR genre, book signings, and yes, cover models. There were some genre standards such as vampires that are good looking, soul mates, love at first site, and erasing memories, all of which work for this shorter-length tale. The story never tried to stand out as unique or offering something we haven't read before, nor does it make apologies for the genre. Instead, My Vampire Cover Model embraces the clichés and gives the reader an entertaining romp for a quick read.

My Vampire Cover Model - Karyn Gerrard My Vampire Cover Model is a fun and fast read made with a great idea.

Who wouldn’t enjoy to be in Deanna’s place? This novella is involved with romance reader’s dreams and imagination! What if this would be true? What if the fantasy became real? This book creates these possibilities and answers the questions.

Burn’s decision needed to have more consequences, so we could really believe this couple should be together after all, it’s something that deserved a little more space in the book, see them grow. I believe something was missing by the end of the story, like it was lacking problems to resolve or a secondary plot to tie it all together.

I had a great time reading this title and enjoyed it very much. Deanne is the type of heroine we can relate to and Burn is charming, handsome and dirty (more than) enough to fall in love with.
