Eva LeRoy hasn’t had an easy life, but she’s finally at the point where she’s content. At times it’s difficult raising her daughter alone, and she really misses her mom, but she’s making it on her own. She’s living in a fantastic, if not a bit run down, home which also doubles as the town library. And she’s finally getting the knack of being a vampire.

Lorcan O’Halloran is dealing with the guilt he feels at killing so many of the townspeople and turning them into vampires. At the time he was infected with “the taint” and not really responsible for his actions. It’s a miracle he even survived and they attribute that to his royal blood. This doesn’t make him feel any less guilty for his actions, especially towards Eva LeRoy. He loves talking with her because she takes as much pleasure with words as does he.

When danger starts following Eva around, Lorcan is determined to protect her. Eva lives for the times when he shares a smile with her, but she can’t deny she wants more. Unfortunately Lorcan keeps holding himself back, and then circumstances take the matter out of their hands.

To get the most fun out of this book as possible, I highly recommend first reading I’m the Vampire, That’s Why as it introduces the town and it’s inhabitants and how they became vampires in the first place. Like its predecessor, Don't Talk Back to Your Vampire is fun, fast paced and quirky. At times though the pace is so fast and quirky I felt confused through some of the scenes.
