    Good Enough to Eat The Vampire Diet Series 1 has lots of high ratings and wonderful reviews, so I m surprised how little I enjoyed this book Narrator Lori Prince, as always, did a fantastic job, but her voice and a few funny moments are about all I liked view spoiler MC Alana is a 450yo former Djinn who gave up her powers and immortality to be with and grow old with her girlfriend Now, that sounds so sweet, doesn t it But here s the thing She wasn t honest with her girlfriend and nev Good Enough to Eat The Vampire Diet Series 1 has lots of high ratings and wonderful reviews, so I m surprised how little I enjoyed this book Narrator Lori Prince, as always, did a fantastic job, but her voice and a few funny moments are about all I liked view spoiler MC Alana is a 450yo former Djinn who gave up her powers and immortality to be with and grow old with her girlfriend Now, that sounds so sweet, doesn t it But here s the thing She wasn t honest with her girlfriend and never told her she wasn t human Now, if you love someone so much that you ll give up the essence of who you are to be with her in human form that just seems like something you should talk about before doing it Perhaps she doesn t really love you and would encourage you to not make that choice Ooopsie.turns out the girlfriend doesn t love her, she loves playing hanky panky with girls on her softball team.So, what s a mortal to do to get over heartbreak Alana turns to gin Lots and lots of gin A gin loving former genie that part was cute After two years of drinking, she has a wake up call when she is driving and hits and kills a dog, nearly hitting a young mother and her baby She joins AA, seeking help as an alcoholic Good for her I mean that , but hearing of her story, this book is clearly not becoming the lesbian comedy I was expecting Perhaps, knowing the blurb described the MCs meeting at an AA meeting, I should have beenprepared for the dark side of their stories.The other MC is Robin, a Girah.which is the term used in the book for vampires After nearly draining a human on New Year s Eve, Robin decides she will get her nourishment only from synthetic blood.never again from a human, despite her cravings and despite the synthetic blood not giving her as much energy as human blood So, she goes to an AA meeting.Robin s family, her friend Meghan and the Girah elders are determined to convince Robin to behave properly, and to treat humans as a mere food supply.Robin earns a meager living as a paranormal romance writer, specializing in vampires I say meager, because she has to borrow 150 to buysynthetic blood Again, here I struggled with the book She s a vampire Vampires live a very long time You d think she d have built up quite a bit of savings over decades and decades Plus, she can enthrall humans She may not want to kill them, which I approve of, but you d think that if her choice is the evil of killing humans for blood, or theminor evil of enthralling humans to occasionally give her some money out of their wallet or a cash register, she d be able to come up with a bit of money.After being heart broken by her girlfriend, Alana no longer believes in the fairy tales of romance book happy endings, and earns her living as a bitter divorce attorney So, you d think when her Djinn friend Dahir offers to give her powers and eternal life back, you d think Alana would jump at the opportunity But no, she wants to give a relationship with Robin a chance Sweet but I never quite bought into the idea that Alana suddenly now knows what love is, and would risk making a second bad choice with a girl, living her life as an alcoholic rather than a being of pure energy, in a plane of existence she liked and misses.Her friend Dahir, btw, was a terrific side character There were a couple very delightful steamy scenes, but I found I believed their lustthan their love I did like that Alana stood up to Meghan for Robin s right to choose how to live her life, and that she insisted on going with Robin when she confronted her parents Staying in the car felt odd, though hide spoiler Well, I rate Good Enough to Eat as a 2.5 story with 5 narration, so I ll rate the book 3 I ve used the spoiler tag for this review, because I gave away lots of plot details The author, Jae, was kind enough to make the kindle version available for free during March 9th and 10th The audiobook version is available on Hoopladigital and Scribd

    I picked this one up on a whim after spotting it on my Goodreads feed I was in the mood for a light paranormal romantic comedy story and read this catchy blurb like snippet in the opening paragraph a fellow Goodreaders review A paranormal lesbian rom com about two different kinds of supernatural women totally crushing on each other and flirting but afraid to tell each other they re not human because they assume naturally that the other one s human I m actually relieved the story itself wasI picked this one up on a whim after spotting it on my Goodreads feed I was in the mood for a light paranormal romantic comedy story and read this catchy blurb like snippet in the opening paragraph a fellow Goodreaders review A paranormal lesbian rom com about two different kinds of supernatural women totally crushing on each other and flirting but afraid to tell each other they re not human because they assume naturally that the other one s human I m actually relieved the story itself was as cute as the cover, because that cover is a hard act to follow.It sold me on the tale way better than the official publishers blurb I m a sucker for rom coms and love the comedy of errors trope so this sounded exactly like the light fun comedy romance I was craving In truth the story itself never quite managed to live up to my expectations Mostly because this was not quite the type of story I was expecting This was a romance and it did have some fun light moments but on the whole it was a lotserious in tone and in the themes it explored than I was expecting The story used the paranormal aspects of the tale as an analogy for various real issues like addiction both drug and alcohol , homosexuality, and even eating disorders I thought it did so cleverly but a light story it did not make as most of those themes gave the story a darkerserious edge than I was expecting and they got as much focus as the romance itself did in the story The good news is that the story was OK and the characters were easy enough to root for I liked both Robin and Alana and felt they made a good couple They helped each other through their own struggles and brought a bit of emotional support into each others life just at a time when they both needed it The themes tackled in the story were a little dark but that did offer the story balance to theoutlandish aspects of the tale All in all I felt like this not quite the story I was expecting so I ended up a tad disappointed by that but that the tale we got was an OK read Likeable characters and a mix of romance and drama Rating 3 stars Audio Note I thought Lori Price did a good job with the audio

    4 stars I liked it Both characters were enjoyable and it s a fairly unique take on vampire theme Glad to see a paranormal book without god damn werewolves and their mate bonds for a change My only nitpick is about the ending, I thought there will bebut nope, that s the end Kinda anticlimactic but I suppose there will be a sequel continuing their story.

    STINKING CUTE Okay, what s cuter than kittens A paranormal lesbian rom com about two different kinds of supernatural women totally crushing on each other and flirting but afraid to tell each other they re not human because they assume naturally that the other one s human I m actually relieved the story itself was as cute as the cover, because that cover is a hard act to follow That cover literally makes me want to submit to Ylva just so I can have a shot at a cover that cute Disclaimer STINKING CUTE Okay, what s cuter than kittens A paranormal lesbian rom com about two different kinds of supernatural women totally crushing on each other and flirting but afraid to tell each other they re not human because they assume naturally that the other one s human I m actually relieved the story itself was as cute as the cover, because that cover is a hard act to follow That cover literally makes me want to submit to Ylva just so I can have a shot at a cover that cute Disclaimer I love my Mangoverse covers Grey and Jae have some neat metaphors going on here There s the obvious one about vampire Robin s blood thirst being compared with alcoholism, which is why she s going to human AA meetings, but there s a deeper one the way feminine presenting women who are attracted to women are often afraid to out themselves to each other for fear of the other one being straight and repelled That s what I saw in Robin s fear of Alana finding out she s a vampire, and in Alana s hiding her own supernaturality from Robin as well There s also the we didn t raise you like this mom and dad that can be compared with homophobic parents in real life.I appreciated the poignant messy happy ending I m a fan of messy happy endings , where the characters and authors acknowledge that recovery from alcoholism is a lifelong commitment rather than a magic wand I had assumed a quick fix ending was coming and I give the authors massive props for not taking that route because given the topic of addiction it would have been a little cheap.The talking past each other misunderstandings necessary for this type of plot made my anxiety shoot up a little, but the book was just so fluffy and fun that I knew it would be worth it, and it was

    I ve only read 53 books by this author, well the Jae co author I ve only read 1 other book, and 1 short story by Alison Grey I amuse myself, I started my last review noting I d read only 1 book previously by the author of the book I was reviewing That 53 number includes rereads and includes this specific book 3 times That 3 times is an outlier for my reading habits.I have 91 works on my reread shelf which does not actually include all of my rereads, but probably most But I ve only r I ve only read 53 books by this author, well the Jae co author I ve only read 1 other book, and 1 short story by Alison Grey I amuse myself, I started my last review noting I d read only 1 book previously by the author of the book I was reviewing That 53 number includes rereads and includes this specific book 3 times That 3 times is an outlier for my reading habits.I have 91 works on my reread shelf which does not actually include all of my rereads, but probably most But I ve only reread 4 worksthan once I ve rereadthan that, but I only have 4 books on my reread second shelf, which corresponds to reread this book two times I reread Jaime Clevenger s Party Favors at least 3 times, possibly 4 times orIt s a choose your own path for adults starring an adult woman as main character book, so there s an obvious reason why I reread the book at all to follow different paths to completion I m fairly certain I ve reread William Goldman s Princess Bride bookthan three times, though I do not have a reread three shelf And I know I ve read The Raven by Edgar Allan Poethan three times More than four times Many many times Odd thing about that reread second shelf Looking at the authors listed, and since Jae is a co author and not the first listed author, she s not listed on that shelf, I ve rarely read any of the authors on the shelf I ve tried another book by Clevenger but didn t finish it I ve read another book by Goldman that had the same kind of feel as Princess Bride, but haven t tried any other book by him Already mentioned I ve only read one other book by Alison Grey And I ve read a few other stories by Poe, but none other listed on Goodreads, and it really is a very small group of other stories I ve read by Poe No idea how that happens.Heh, this is the third review I ve written for this book, I can allow myself to wander, eh As I ve probably written numerous times this book involves a vampire by a different name and a djinn genie we hate that word that has become human The story is from both main character s point of views One, the djinn turned human, is almost 500 years old The other, the vampire by another name is almost 100 years old Both, oddly enough, have human jobs and human issues like money and stuff The vamp is a paranormal romance author of lesbian fiction The djinn is a divorce lawyer.They meet in unusual circumstances This might be the only book I ve read that included multiple AA meetings I ve read others that involve addiction, but this might be the only one that has multiple AA meetings Which is where the two main characters meet at an AA meeting The genie is there because she has a gin problem The vampire is there because she has a drinking problem As in, she wants to stop her addiction to blood Of course, this is like and I might have used this before a human going to multiple meetings because of their addiction to oxygen Vampires in this fantasy world will literally die without human blood Animal blood will not sustain them so the option chosen in Ann Rice vampire book, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer sucking on rats, isn t an option here Though there is a synthetic blood that will keep them alive Though it d be like a human who, instead of ingesting real oxygen, instead ingested synthetic oxygen specifically created to be like the worst polluted air in the world the blood tastes horrible Right, so, obviously I really enjoyed the book despite my lack of using character names , since I ve read it so many times The main characters are quite well developed At least one side character connected to each main character is developedkind of well Then there are a bunch of other side characters that just exist I ve no idea why I m going on about characters.Explicit graphic sex.Family angst why won t you drink blood who cares if you accidentally kill They are just humans Oh, and stop writing that filth you horrible daughter you Certain amount of lying I couldn t tell you I was a word used for vampire in this book I didn t know you would have believed me I couldn t tell you I was formerly a djinn who still has a certain low level residual force field , becauseI thought you were human No cute animals were involved in the unfolding story one dead dog, but no one said if it was cute or not.Oh, and no I did not read this in German I m just running out of editions to mark as read.Rating 5 May 21 2020

    This is a really sweet read The easy writing style draws you in very quickly and before you know it, you re rushing to the end.This book is like comfort food, sweet, immediately satisfying and packed with guilty calories.Two negatives 1 should be longer, I know this is the start of a series so I can forgive some of the rushed ending but I want2 Alana should have been a police detective


  10. says:

    The initial premise, a vampire goes to AA to give up her addiction to blood, was cute and I enjoyed that both main characters had a secret to keep That provided some fun tension for the first 3 4 of the book Eventually the word is out and the rest of the story is sex and family drama I should have stopped at 3 4 but you may like it .
