Staked by J. F. Lewis

From Amazon:

UNREPENTANT. UNIMPRESSED.AND TOTALLY UNDEAD

Eric’s got issues. He has short-term and long-term memory problems; he can’t remember who he ate for dinner yesterday, much less how he became a vampire in the first place. His best friend, Roger, is souring on the strip club he and Eric own together. And his girlfriend, Tabitha, keeps pressuring him to turn her so she can join him in undeath. It’s almost enough to put a Vlad off his appetite. Almost.

Eric tries to solve one problem, only to create another: he turns Tabitha into a vampire, but finds that once he does, his desire for her fades — and her younger sister, Rachel, sure is cute. And when he kills a werewolf in self-defense, things really get out of hand. Now a pack of born-again lycanthropes is out for holy retribution, while Tabitha and Rachel have their own agendas — which may or may not include helping Eric stay in one piece.

All Eric wants to do is run his s.trip club, drink a little blood, and be left alone. Instead, he must survive car crashes, enchanted bullets, sunlight, sex magic, and werewolves on ice — not to mention his own nasty temper and forgetfulness.

Because being undead isn’t easy, but it sure beats the alternative.

I love Eric. He is so messed up, but lovable. This book moved very fast. I really liked how the point of view varied from Eric to Tabitha, Eric’s girlfriend. The changing p.o.v really kept the pace up. The vampires in this book have their own hierarchy. Eric is a Vlad, the highest tier of the hierarchy. Tabitha becomes a Master with is the level under a Vlad. Usually in vampire books there is a “master vampire” and then the other vampires. I was really intrigued by the whole concept of the levels. I can’t wait for the next book in the series, which I read is to be published sometime in 2009. And, I definitely need to find my own “Welcome To The Void” shirt.

Oh this does sound great. I’ve been so into many of the paranormals and urban fantasy and especially when they are series that we can visit more of the same characters with! I do have this one down to get!
