Blurb: It’s tough being a vampire. For one thing, there’s so much time on your hands. And for another, being undead for centuries means that you meet way too many stupid people…
Socrates Delis, since he has to be awake at night, wonders why he shouldn’t make better use of his time. So to ease his loneliness and hopefully meet a more educated group of people, he enrolls in night school at UCLA’s extension courses and quickly finds that poetry isn’t the only thing on the agenda. Somebody is killing off young gay men around town, and students are nervous. And by the way, didn’t Socrates swear off love? So why’s he finding himself attracted to his hot, human teacher?
Devin Gold loves his work. The great poets are his favorites to share with his English lit students, and while teaching, his life often seems just about perfect. But holy heck, his crazy Uncle Vince just blew into town and has even invaded Devin’s night classes, disrupting his life. Uncle Vince and Devin’s mom think they’re vampire hunters. Devin knows there’s no such thing, and has lived with the shame of their insanity all his life. Now his uncle swears that LA, even night school, is swarming with fangers.
How can Devin keep his sudden attraction to his handsome new student, Socrates, a secret? He’s not sure, but he has to try, especially since his obsessive uncle will undoubtedly insist that Socrates is a vampire. It’s tough being a sane human in La La Land…
Review: Yup, another vampire book for me and Night School Vampire was a winner!
Take one sexy and sarcastic vamp who wants to do something with all his free time, feel closer to humanity and maybe write that one great novel. Put him into a creative writing class with a hot teacher, whose family just happen to be vampire hunters, and crazy shit happens!
That’s basically the plot of the book. The vamp Socrates is bored and takes a night class. His teacher Devin is a wet dream come true. Devin’s also writing a book/play based on his crazy family. He doesn’t believe in vampires. Someone is killing prostitutes and suspicion falls on the vamps, but other forces are at work. The story gets a bit convoluted with other forms of vamps, and Socrates being revealed as a prince. Honestly, I was a bit confused and the resolution was a bit rushed, but that didn’t bother me much. The story was written so well, and the ride was fun and fast paced. I love when the dialog is interesting and fun, not stilted, and the banter between Socrates and everyone else in the book was enjoyable and funny. There’s also a surprise manage, and the chemistry between Devin and Socrates is pretty hot as can be expected when a vamp is involved.
My only negative about this book is that it was very short. There was a lot of material that could have been expanded, but nevertheless the story is good. Night School Vampire will make you want to go back to school and look for your sexy vampire!
