Read full description of the books:
This was an amazingly uneven book. It was okay, I guess. Some of the characters were cute, and the author made a valiant attempt at a "sassy" voice for her main character, but all in all it was just uneven. And kind of sloppy.
The mind-reading schtick was cute for a couple pages, then it just started to look like sloppy writing. The book's written in first person POV, and throughout the book, other characters would comment on the POV narration because they were reading her mind. After a while, when every supernatural character could read Glory's mind (including a talking dog and a were-cat), it stopped being a cute schtick and became the author's lazy way of not having to write a lot of dialogue.
About half of the character could have been cut to make the book tighter. There were a LOT of people wandering through this book for no real reason, and keeping track of them all, in case I'd need to remember them later, got annoying.
But not as annoying as Glory herself. Man. The title implies a plus-size vampire, but we hear her say she was "bloated" the day she was made a vampire. That's not at all the same thing. She's got an on again, off again relationship with her guy - so confused, that she has a night of great sex with him and the next day bemoans her crappy love life.
I realized I was done with this book when she remembered having sex with her man for the first time in her dressing room at the Globe Theatre. Her. Dressing. Room. Yeah. Which probably had a shower in it too. There were no private dressing rooms in the Globe - I found this out in thirty seconds on Google. I know this is a minor detail, but it's enough to make me realize the author is lazy and doesn't care enough about her own story to get things even remotely right.

Read information about the authorGerry Bartlett figures that vampires are pretty much like everyone else except for the liquid diet.
Eternity or Mexican food? Tough call.
Gerry’s a native Texan and lives halfway between Houston and Galveston with her rescue whippet, Jet. Pictured with her is her late wonder dog, a Bedlington Terrier named Belle.
When she started writing, she was still teaching and used the pseudonym Lynn McKay. You can probably still find her historical and two romantic suspense books for a penny on-line. Now that she’s no longer in the classroom and discovered the fun of writing about vampires, she uses her real name. Too bad some people think Gerry is a boy's name or short for Geraldine. No, it's not. Really.
You can check out Gerry’s website at gerrybartlett.com to find her blog and articles for writers. Her Perils of Publishing gives the scoop on what happens once "the call" comes. Oh, did you think it would be all roses and champagne? Well, of course it is.
When Gerry's not writing, she's treasure hunting for her antiques business on the historic Strand in Galveston. Her favorite finds? Vintage purses and jewelry. It's a struggle not to keep it all. You can find out when she works there on one of her two Facebook pages. She loves to meet readers.
