If I hadn't seen it for myself, I'd swear it couldn't be true: my brother, Christian, living in a trailer park in some backwater town, working at a karaoke bar. We're talking about Christian, the cultured, the refined, the snobby-the guy who'd probably sniff the plasma packets and send `em back in a huff if the blood type wasn't the right vintage. But after centuries of living in the undead fastlane, he's made up his mind that this is exactly where he needs to spend the rest of eternity, atoning for his many, many, sins. It's a self-imposed purgatory complete with lawn ornaments and blaring country music. But sometimes things just don't work out like you think they will. Sometimes your hell can turn into your heaven. And thanks to Christian's chatty neighbour and boss, Jolee, things seem to be getting a whole lot nicer in Shady Fork Mobile Estates. Not that either of them has the first idea how to have a normal relationship-we are talking about a woman's who's only dated dead-beats, and a guy who's only dated the dead. Nobody's perfect. Still, it's a start for Mr. Rebel Vamp Without a Cause. And fortunately he still has me, Rhys Young, and our younger brother, Sebastian, to help him. We plan to show Christian that everyone deserves a second chance, and winning his beer-slinging, country-singing beauty is a great beginning.

I really the second book better then the first one. The interaction between the two seemed more real and the love developed over time. They had more contact with the outside world and watching Christain struggle with trying to be human was funny. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

Fangs But No Fangs by Kathy Love is the second story in her series about the Young family. This story is about Christian Young, the middle child and outcast/black sheep of the family. Picking up sometime after the first book, Fangs For the Memories. s a run-down trailer park and gives up all of his vampire ways including shape-shifting and biting, This book revolves around Christian trying to make up for the bad he's done in his 200 plus years as a vampire. Christian has left New York thinking that he killed his brother's mate. He goes to live in a run down trailer park with none of the creature comforts he has grown very accustomed too. He's definitely making strides to not be a "bad" vampi e anymore. (Being Human 12 Step Program!). He lives on bagged blood instead. One night, he rescues his neighbor, Jolee, from an attack by her drugged out brother Vance. Jolee is trying to escape her family's reputation/past and make a new name for herself in this town. Sparks fly between them immediately and this confuses Christian. He doesn't understand his instant attraction to her without wanting to feed as well. The next night, he almost runs Jolee over with his car he's so distracted thinking about why he's attracted to her without the craving for her blood as well. Jolee owns a bar down the street from the trailer park, and she was walking home from work.
Christian takes her to the hospital to get her checked out. Since her shoulder is injured, he decides to help her out at her bar for a few days. The more that they work together, the closer they get, and the more that the attraction between them build. Christian decides that instead of fighting his attraction to her, he will just go with it. He decides to date her as one of his steps is “making contact” with a
mortal and he's drawn to Jolee. It doesn't take long for him to decide that he wants her as his mate, but how will she ever be able to accept him for what he is and what he's done in his past? There are some very humorous moments and dialogue with this story. It was more light-hearted than the first book.
The only had two issues with the book, one was the fact that they never addressed Christain's inability to bite and then without talking with Dr. Fowler in the 11th hour he suddenly can bite again. I didn't like that they didn't address that issue or maybe mention that they had hired someone to open the bar from 5:00 to 8:30 when the vampire wake up and they can make it to the bar themselves.
Overall very enjoyable book.
