Gil's All Fright Diner by A. Lee Martinez

Rating: 5 of 5 stars

In the middle of nowhere , along a quiet stretch of road the diner dreamt of the hungry dead. And of two men.
Well not exactly men.
Earl bounced in his seat as the truck quacked. His beer slipped and settled in his lap. He grunted curses as he snatched up the can too late to prevent a yellow puddle around his groin.
"Hell Duke, do you have to hit every god damn hole in the road?"
Alright, so normally I just post the first sentence of the book but this book I loved so much that I wanted to post more… hell I wanted to post the entire first chapter but I am far too lazy to for that. So, I have a lot of great things to say about this… let us jump right in!
The story fallows the Duke of werewolves and the Earl of vampires, who both go by their titles either by choice or because they like it better.
The first time I read this book I was about 12, and I've read it another 3-5 times since. The book does have some mature themes to it, like remarks about "morning wood" and quite a few remarks about sex. It does have it's far share of swear words as well. But, even after my 5th time reading I still can't put this book down.
There are not many characters in it but I liked that, and the best part is that every one of them is memorable. There is an adorable romance in, there are good villains, cute pets and everything else in-between.

The author does a great way of playing with the vampire/werewolf myths, giving detail that is worth reading and adding humor. This book was so good I had to work to find things I didn't like about it!

I had such a hard time finding things I didn't like about this book but it did get a little drawn out by the end, just a tiny bit though.
