The Vampire Next Door is an astounding novel. The characters will leave you laughing as it unfolds. The plot is well written in a hot, sensual, exciting way. Readers will love Sly Flores, a vampire, who only goes after the bad guys. Sly keeps the neighborhoods safe by satisfying his appetite from the evil ones. The story is about a witch name Morgaine. She lives upstairs from Sly. Sly tries to deny his attraction towards Morgaine. Even with the character being a vampire and a witch, readers can easily connect with them. The way they act around each other will send you falling head over heels in love. The scenes are sweet, funny, and adorable. Take out the paranormal and you have a realistic story about two lovers who try but fail at denying their love. I loved reading this book from the first page until the end. Their was one scene, where Sly accidentally bit a bad guy’s silver necklace. This caused his fangs to stay out and caused him pain. He goes to see Morgaine. She is a healing witch. While Morgaine is checking his fangs and gum, Sly’s thoughts automatically go towards kissing Morgaine. Half-way into his fantasy about her, he shakes his heads after he realizes what he’s thinking about. Morgaine then chooses that moment to make him a healing salve. Ashlyn Chase is a very talented writer. She knows how to use humor and interweave it into her beautifully written romance novel. I loved it. I look forward to reading her other two books as well. Those looking for a paranormal romance with a unique twist and humor, then this is the book for you! I highly recommend readers to read this story. I promise you will be hooked from beginning to end.
