Reginald Baskin has been overweight and made fun of his whole life and to make matters worse he works in the fitness industry with mostly perfect co-workers that make fun of him. When Reginald tries to befriend one of the only other outcasts at work he gets a bit more than he bargained for. Maurice is actually a vampire and when Reginald’s life is at stake Maurice turns him to save him. Unfortunately for Reginald that means he will forever be 350 pounds and out of shape.
Most of the vampire portions of this book follow the general ideas of vampires… sun will burn them, killed by a stake to the heart, feed on blood etc. The idea however of an out of shape vampire was a new concept and did lead to a few funny parts although not quite as many as I had hoped. Also, it touched on the idea of why vampires are so in shape, they train as humans before being turned thought that was a good add.
Liked Reginald overall and enjoyed the relationship development with Nikki and Claire. Also, the ending was a bit of a surprise there, wasn’t expecting Reginald’s plan and had a bit of an eeww gross moment which was a great add to the horror portion of the book.
Overall, quick read with a few laughs and a bit of horror mixed in.
