"Got Fangs?" Oregonian teenager Francesca Ghetti is six feet tall and reads minds by touching objects. Her divorced mother is a witch who has dragged Fran to Hungary on a traveling show filled with freaks and geeks. Fran is almost run over by a motorcycle. The driver is a hunk who is actually taller than her, which is what freaks her out. She does not blink when she learns he is Benedikt Czerny, a Moravian Dark One over three centuries old, who believes she will save his soul. When Benedikt demands Fran and his sister stay home while he fights a demon; his American Amazonian prepares to kick demon butt and his if necessary.

"Circus of the Darned". Teenage psychic Francesca has somewhat adapted to her abilities like summoning the dead and her abnormal lifestyle as a member of the touring Gothefaire. Even for Francesca used to the absurd being the norm, things are more out of control than usual starting with the twelve dead Vikings she brought back to life or her dating a motorcycle riding vampire who is almost three centuries her senior. While mom objects to his bad overbite with dental costs so high; Benedikt insists she is his life-mate, he needs to insure that his beloved GOT FANGS too. However the biggest problem in Francesca's mind is he is a night person and she has a curfew.

To be honest, I picked this book up during my whole vampire obsessed phase. It sat on my shelf after the phase ended and while digging through my book pile, I found it. I remembered why i picked it up. The title. Confessions. I wanted to know what confessions. So I dived in.

Plot: What you should first know is that this book carries two small stories. The first is called “Got Fangs?” and this story is the beginning of Ben and Fran. They met unexpectedly and before you know, their lives are changed. Then there is,”Circus Of The Darned” and this is a second short story of Ben and Fran, on solving a mystery/adventure. Both stories are short due to the fact that these stories lead up the the adult novel, In The Company Of  Vampires. From reading both stories and finishing them pretty quickly I can tell you that I’m definitely interested in reading the adult book cause I want to know how it ends.

Ben/Fran: Their relationship begins rocky. Fran is taken back by Ben and does not like the fact that she is his,”beloved.” She wants to be a teen and live her life. Which I can totally understand. Still, they became great friends.

Ending: I think Ben and Frans stories does cut off short which is why I’m tempted to read the adult novel.  I want to know that they end well and together.

This is good book. I really getting to know these characters and hoping  can read their final adventure soon. Confessions Of A Vampire’s Girlfriend is great.

I give it 4 BITES!


Happy Reading!

    So is the adult novel about Ben and Fran as well? I definitely want to know more about them just based on your review! And I’m never not in a vampire phase, so I think these two shorter stories would work well for me:)

      Yes, there is an adult novel of these two. I’m strongly tempted to read it.

    Huh, that’s interesting, that it’s two YA stories that then leads to an adult novel! I don’t think I’ve ever come across that before–I may need to check it out.

    I’ve read some of her books, but not this one. She writes some hilarious stuff from my experience!
