I always enjoy a Mia Monroe novel so I was excited when she said she was writing something different, something in the spec fiction genre, vampires and witches, demons and fae. I used to read a lot in this genre but have gone away from it over the years, I loved going back to it with Mia’s newest novel.
Never Trust a Guy With Fangs was such a good read, I actually read it twice as I didn’t write my review straight away and wanted to refresh my mind and ended up rereading the whole novel.
I love Leo who is a witch, he’s a little bit sassy, knows what he wants but has a vulnerability about him too. Augustus is the head vampire of his coven and is extremely likeable too, he’s lived a long time, seen a lot and experienced a lot of loss during his 2500 years.
The attraction between these two was hot, but fun too, Leo and his sassy ways made it fun, he just wouldn’t give up when Augustus said they couldn’t be together, for many reasons, the treaty between the witches and vampires being a big reason.
I enjoyed the side characters of Presley and Beto and look forward to their book because I’m sure just like Leo and Augustus they can’t fight their feelings for too long.
There’s a lot going on in this novel, an unknown demon is trying to destroy the magical beings who inhabit Eaton Falls, and I’m sure he won’t stop there. It’s the start of a war, truces and trusts between beings need to be forged if they are to stand a chance at winning. Secrets about the real reason vampires and witches hate each other are uncovered and Leo finds out plenty about himself he never knew. His relationship with Augustus will also change everything they both thought they knew.
I certainly wasn’t bored at all throughout this novel, I enjoyed every minute of it and loved the relationship between Leo and Augustus. I can’t wait to read the next book, luckily the wait isn’t too long.
